darwinian valentine's day

did anyone get up early enough to see the conjunction of venus and jupiter? i almost did, but not quite. let me know if you got any good pictures!

this afternoon, i'm leaving on a jetplane for the spanish-speaking wonderland... chile! i'm extremely excited to be heading back to my home of most of 2007!! the main purpose of the trip is for a job interview (think good thoughts for me!), but i also plan to visit old friends, drive to the mystical valley, drink some pisco sours, eat an empanada or four, hopefully listen to fantastic folk music, and lounge a bit on the beach!

i might not be able to post much while traveling, so i leave you with a challenge... enter the darwin valentine's day card contest being held by the skepchicks!!! i think this is a hilarious idea, and i'm feeling inspired to try to come up with something even half as clever as the one they share...

good luck!

Best of luck with the interview Amanda! Have a Pisco Sour and an Empanada for me, I miss them so bad!

I was at a sunrise Wedding Saturday, and they were close but not amazingly close. The moon was less than a diameter from Antares, though, which I didn't expect, and it was fun watching it and Jupiter slowly disappear as the morning sky got brighter (then clouds ate everything).
