I'm a Lotus Elise!

You believe in maximum performance and minimum baggage. You like to travel light and fast, hit the corners hard, and dance like there's no tomorrow.

"Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

Cool, eh? Though I don't think Id like to be orange...

Slowly but surely Mary and I are falling back into our old routines. Her temper seems to have developed in leaps and bounds since I left, which is a wee bit stressful for me, but other than that, it's been pretty easy to get back into the swing of things.

As for the temper, well, wow. Mary screams and cries in rage at the drop of a hat, at just about everything. She screams if she wants up, she screams if she wants down, she screams if she steps on something, she screams if she wants something, she screams if she doesnt want something. She screams if I look at her, she screams if I dont. She especially screams at pinecones, she hates them with a hot hot heat (I think she may have been reading about Declan over at Simian Farmer). Anyways, all the rage is starting to get a little old.

What else? Well, the Purgatory game is this friday, though I'm not sure that I'll make it. I've not been able to arrange for a sitter for the crab apple, and to be honest, I'm not sure that I would feel good about inflicting anyone else to the fury. Tonight is D&D, and I'm quite excited about it. I've been in withdrawl, as I havn't played in a couple of weeks now. I'm looking forward to getting acquainted with my new character, a halfling bard named Dewberry Tealeaf. She's quite a change from my wild Scots (well, the equivilant of Scottish anyways) barbarian who could hack her way through an army of Orcs without breaking a sweat. Gosh, sometimes I'm a geek, aren't I?

What follows are a few of the pictures that I took in Puerto Rico. This is a view from the balcony of our 15th floor appartement. Beautiful, isn't it? Posted by Picasa

Ian and I decided to drive around the island on my first Saturday in Puerto Rico. Many of the roads there are wide and busy, but there were several that we encountered that were extremely narrow, and scarily twisty. The Puerto Ricans would drive around those curves at top speeds, it got pretty scary. Posted by Picasa

After driving for several hours, we made it to the south coast of the island. We stopped to dip our feet in the Carribian Sea. Posted by Picasa

Ian, a couple of his coworkers and I decided to go up to El Yunque, the National Rainforest park, to check out some waterfalls we had heard about. We hiked along a path through the forest, and it was absolutely beautiful. Posted by Picasa

At the end of a long walk through the rainforest, we relaxed with our feet in the water at the base of the waterfall. Posted by Picasa

On the way home from the waterfalls, we stopped at this little restaurant at the side of the road. The food was fabulous and the people were incredibly friendly. Posted by Picasa
