The San Diego Coaster cuts south (at least when I ride it in the mornings), along some of the most beautiful coastline I have ever witnessed. About 20 minutes into the ride, it twists away from the coast briefly and slices through a really amazing, green, lush valley (on the west side of the train). Today, that valley was coated with a fine mist, resting among the scrubby trees and leaving a wispy fog over the small streams and water-inlets that escape from the ocean into that valley. Even better, I actually saw a dear, with very dark markings, racing alongside the train!

I love riding the train.

My right pinky-toe doesn't have enough skin underneath it to stretch out properly, like the other toes. So when it lands on something where it gets stretched, it cracks. This is quite an irritating sensation. I cracked it open last night; it's like having a paper-cut that reopens itself on every step.

Considering upgrading to a newly released version of SpiderMonkey (the Mozilla one, not the Ximian one). shaver says it has many pretty bugfixes. Too bad the Windows build process blows so much.

Still reading Rise of Theodore Roosevelt (he's at Harvard now), and playing too much Dark Age of Camelot. Got the newest edition of "OpenGL Programming Guide" for Christmas, and I really should make myself do a project to master this stuff. I want to do a modellor.
