The Horror of Blimps is one of the best short stories I've read in a long time. I would definately reccomend it to anyone who needs a pick-me-up.
As for everything else, things have finally settled down around here. Most of my midterms weren't as bad as I expected, and now I'm finally in the clear. We're headed to TEXAS tomorrow and i'm headed to Rochester tonight to set routes for a bouldering comp. I'll be back in a week with pics and stories.
