All The Essentials

Camping grocery list:

-lima beans

Because: I'm leaving town! In celebration of Mr. S's recent and successful defense of his thesis, which all went very well except the bit at the beginning where a summer program thought they had the room for 1 pm. And refused to leave. Fortunately, Titania arrived, and five minutes later, they'd all vanished. Then she had us all over to her lovely house for champagne and Brie.

One down; one to go.

So we are here (myself, Dr. S [!], and my favorite cousin, whose birthday we will be celebrating with chocolate cake). We will be in the woods, hiking about, gazing at birds, and setting things on fire (in a controlled and environmentally sensitive manner). Also, we will be drinking bourbon. Cheers all around.
