What are you up to?

    What are you doing this summer?

    I'm taking summer school P.E. for 5 hours a day. I dislocated my middle pharanx on my third finger playing basketball, and got a minor sprain on my ankle from soccer.

    I am considering driving the pioneer route westward across northern Utah and then along the Humboldt River in Nevada, and up over Donner summit--a place famous in California emigrant lore and also in railroading.

    Setting up a He-3 cryostat. Did some whitewater rafting in Virginia last month. Planning on building a Dobsonian mount telescope in my free time.

    Hmmmm, summer plans.

    I'm going to work on the dry rot around one of my living room windows, then maybe clean out all of the debri left after my last basement flood.

    For personal enjoyment, perhaps I will exfoliate my face with my new cucumber melon facial scrub and then slough calluses off my feet with my new foot cream. :approve:

    Bringing any guests just in case?

    I'm looking to get a job at some local year-round schools as an after school program leader. Help little kids with homework and play games and such. Thus far I've just been doing some boating on the bay, playing beach volleyball, and spending too much time on the internet.

    We just had two sets of guests with one more short visit next weekend. As Tsu mentioned, in a way, the work around here never ends. It looks like this summer I am also helping to save Oregon's bridges and to make sure the world has enough potato chips and microwave chicken dinners.

    OOPS! :eek:

    I'm entering a science competition which I'm absolutely thrilled about. I'm doing it on the relationship between chaos/self organising systems and neuroscience. I'm getting help with a mathematician I know, and now I have to go hunt for a cognitive neuroscientist.

    I also want to go to Vegas or something. If not, my dream is to go watch Jeopardy, live so I can see Ken Jennings in action. (he won a million+ so far)

    I am hopping between Santa Barbara, Oxnard, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Dallas in a seemingly random pattern, perhaps one that Imp's automata can model.

    I am exceedingly jealous of you all! It's not yet the school hols where I am from. In fact, it's the middle of the school year. :(

    Never mind Recon.

    I am chilling at home. Going to Norfok and then Belgium. Week in each. Spend time with my girlfriend. No problem. Might study science when she is with friends.

    Perhaps someone will post a "What I did on my summer vacation" photoessay here?
