Lovely day at the beach.

    Well, two days ago, I went to the beach. This is the really amazing beach, my favorite in the world. Except the sand is bad, because the beach is geologically new, and because of so much coral. Ow. The sand is not soft.

    Anyway, I was walking along the beach, and I heard this HUUGE explosion, while the ground and air shook. I've never heard a bomb go off in my life, and it sounded just like explosions those on TV... except louder, and more stressful. I saw the mushroom cloud go up, not of flame but of vapour, a mile or less away. Ahh, living on the Air Force base is fun isn't it? I hope it was planned.

    I wish I was at the ocean. Instead, I'm landlocked and it's raining.

    I'm in a cow pasture with buildings and it's snowing. :grumpy:

    On the bright side, frozen cowpies don't get all over your shoes. Also, you can screw handles on them, clear a patch of ice, and have a curling match. :approve:

    Unfortunately the cows have been moved down the road, now we have flocks of geese roaming the parking lot and blocking the sidewalks. There's a pond right next to the building I work in. Darn geese will stare you down, and if you don't walk around them they lunge at you, hissing, huge fangs gnashing in the air. :surprised

    Again with the fangs... :rolleyes:
    'knashing', huh? Is that like gnashing, but with beaks instead of teeth?

    You're being way too kind to them, Evo. They don't have fangs, and if they nip at you first, you're allowed to defend yourself. Just don't smack them too hard the first time -- let them learn a gentle lesson the first time. After that, well, you know. :rolleyes:

    I forgot to mention that it was less than a mile away.

    Oh, don't forget the goose poop, they force you to step into it, they know what they're doing. They're PURE EVIL! Those things bite hard. :frown:

    Be quiet, I'm freezing and the nearest beach is over 1,000 miles away. :cry:

    Oh, when I lived in Michigan I lived next to a lake. Lot of geese. Lot of poo. Not much sidewalk.
