Whew. Monday already?
I spent the morning in my first summer class o’ the semester. It’s another biostats class, but this time it’s a completely different type of analysis. I think it’ll be complex, but not too taxing on my brain. Hopefully.
Anyway, I also spent my weekend free of class worries and homework somewhat busy. On Saturday, Mindy and I went to the zoo. I haven’t been there in ages – since I was a kid (the primate house looks exactly the same, though) – and it was fun.
(Pictures and more zoo talk after the jump)
Did I ever tell y’all about the time I was down in East Texas with the Stonecutters? It’s a little town that feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere, but we were staying on a lake. At one point, one of the neighbors came by and said they saw ‘gators down the road in the swampy area. Well, we all jumped in the back of a pickup truck and rode down the road to catch a glimpse of gator in the wild. It was cool. That gator was much further away than this one, though.
These penguins were a little bigger than I expected. The guy on the right is giving the other one directions to the local burger joint. “Take a left at Albuquerque…” I really liked the penguin cove (as I’m calling it even though that isn’t the name). So cool to see the different ones (I could have taken a ton of penguin pictures and stayed there a lot longer, but there were more animals to see).
I love the zoo. And now that I live so close to it, I can visit any time. (A few more pictures here.)
