charismatic megafauna

I feel much better about the snow bears after I visited Pike, Andy and Ulu at San Francisco Zoo today. I spoke to one of them and it gave me the Eye: “Who d’you think you’re talking to, Prey Animal?” Destruction of their habitat continues apace, but they recently got taken off the Endangered list, and they seem adaptable sorts.

I’m trying to teach Claire to call rhinoceroses unicorns, but Jeremy disapproves. I spent a very happy half-hour sitting in the Saturday afternoon sun with Julia, laughing my head off at the plip-plip-plip each time the Asian rhinoceros farted. I am three.

Ian says my blog sounds melancholy right now. I’m not! I told him that this is exactly why people should hang out with me and not just read my blog.
