My name’s Joe. I’m 23 and I’m a PhD student of linguistics. I like to drum and kayak and read.
We climbed up a waterfall last weekend.

I don’t know what to be for Halloween. I didn’t go to school today. I’m doing homework and writing a short story that’s very much unlike other things I’ve written.

This is a fascinating place. I once saw a kind of bioluminescent lichen in the “grotto”. Never quite figured out what it was, but the place is very Arthur Machen! It is near where I live.
It was really windy at the beach this weekend, and as a result the sand looked great.
Black sand just makes me very happy. There’s something about it that always feels new and weird and exciting.
As middle class mass entertainments gained increasing popularity in the late nineteenth century, so did the impetus to instruct this new audience in the ways of appropriate public behavior. By the time the motion picture industry had achieved full flower in the 1910s, however, etiquette announcements like these were used mainly for their entertainment value.
Happy Ada Lovelace Day to techies one and all. Hug your computer and shake your crinolines in mathematical celebration.
Getting even more into (possessed by?) the Hallowe’en Spirit.

Today Joe and I went on a hike and climbed up a huge, huge waterfall, then got lunch in a town we’ve never been to before and admired their houses and explored their railroad.
