Return of Birds

Though they probably have been back for some time, I heard the birds this morning. Winter’s chill is mostly over, though I still have worn my new gloves a few times now. They are more snug than the old gloves, but they are warmer, I think. Apparently they’re technically only liners, meant to be inside other, bigger glove covers. But they’re badass liners (when will badass be it’s own word?)

Last weekend Sukie, the boy and Me headed across the Nevada desert to go to the Marine Aquarium Expo in Los Angeles, at the Orange County Fair & Events Center. That was essentially a really long fish club meeting, with tons of vendors and things to buy. It was an interesting experience.

Of course, we went to Disneyland on Sunday, rather than have 2 days of fish conference. Sukie got all she needed out of the fish conference in one day, so I didn’t have to hear constant comparisons on Sunday about how she’d rather be at the fish conference. It’s Disneyland, goddamnit!

The day at Disneyland was what it should have been, it was chilly, which is something different from what I’ve experienced before, most of the lines were short, except the Indiana Jones adventure and the Finding Nemo ride, and we got to ride a bunch of fun rides. I didn’t drown Sukie and the boy with trivia, mostly because I fought the urge to read up on all sorts of trivia beforehand, but I was just trying to get through the process – I was anxious enough all ready.

I wondered why so many families took their very young children, and wondered if I had perhaps waited too long to get Lucas there. You see, he’s already too cynical for Disneyland, I think.

What can you do, when most of your company and friends are all adults?

Then again, I realize that Disneyland trips are a poor gauge of a good childhood.

Of course, Sukie had never been to Disneyland before. It totally explains everything.
