Anomalous Peaks of Ability

I have not been able to complete a thought lately. The half-finished posts are piling up around these parts. It may be the hint of Spring that is distracting me, and thoughts of our upcoming vacation, but lately I’ve been reading quite a bit more too. And when my nose hasn’t been stuck in a book I’ve been out and about. Busy, as usual.

On Friday I took the day off from work to have my taxes done, then join the little man’s school group on a field trip to the bowling alley (alas, I was unable to take photos as I’d brought my camera but left my CF card at home). Then it was on to lunch and a movie with the ex. We both quite liked In Bruges. Went home and hastily prepped the house for the arrival of my houseguests, from Chicago.

Saturday the little man and I took them to brunch at Seward Community Cafe. We digested while strolling through the Walker’s Sculpture Gardens, but then topped it off with Cupcake Saturday. This week we hit it up right at noon, before Sheela’s goodness could sell out. Afterwards it was over to the Como Conservatory to enjoy the lush greenery and…frogs! Our guests went on to a meal at Mickey’s Diner, before catching a live performance of A Prairie Home Companion at the Fitzgerald Theater. Didn’t have the babysitter lined up, so I could only direct them to Nye’s Polonaise. They enjoyed the World’s Most Dangerous Polka Band.

Sunday we got off to a slow start. Lazed about in the morning, reading and watching some YouTube clips (like Sir Heffington and the Fingered Dancers and
dolphins blowing bubble rings) then popped by Pizza Luce for lunch. After our guests departed there was more lazing about, this time at my ex’s place.

All weekend long I was cheering on co-workers/friends as they participated in the F1 Overnight Website Challenge. Looked like a lot of fun, but quite the endurance test. Still, that’s more my kind of marathon then something like running would be.

Bonus: An excellent article appeared in Wired last week - The Truth About Autism: Scientists Reconsider What They Think They Know.

And: Happened upon the Arise! Atlas, built by Amanda Luker, to “document anything free, underground, hidden, radical or otherwise interesting in the Twin Cities.”
