Went to the Minnesota Zoo last night with RhesusMonkey for the member's preview night of the new lemur exhibit. Lemurs are sooo cute! It's gonna be a few days before any pictures can go up because I won't have Chiana back until tonight or tomorrow.
They had food there, and it was yummy. And we got to see the Imax film "Bugs" and it was kind of creepy. It's in 3D and many children started crying and screaming after seeing a GIGANTIC Imax sized praying mantis bite the head off of a fly!
I also saw Ross Taylor who was the zookeeper in charge of the Arctic Foxes back in the summer of '87 when I studied them at the MNZoo's summer ZooSchool. I don't think he remembered me. I asked about the pregnant Mexican Wolf, and learned that she had a litter of 8 pups, but only 2 survived because she had them in a makeshift den instead of the nice safe artificial den. :(
But still, when your worldwide numbers are less than 350, 2 puppies are WAY better than none!

She's baaaa-aaaack

Yay! I picked Chiana up at Southdale this evening! She's cruising along at a nice healthy 512MB now!
I'm also trying to catch up on LJ after a couple days of just quick skimming during lunch. Damn, y'all are a prolific lot! I'm currently at skip=140.

Stolen from hellbob, notmonochrome, and just about everyone else...

The TV Guide Cult TV list:

Bold the ones you have seen more than half the episodes and * the ones you own.

1. Star Trek *(currently own just Season 1-4 of TNG. Hey, hellbob, TNG is better than TOS, because Picard is HOT!
2. The X-Files
3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer *(Own S1-5)
4. Farscape * (We only own S1&2 so far)
5. Monty Python's Flying Circus
6. The Simpsons * (own S1&2)
7. The Prisoner
8. The Twilight Zone (I must have seen over half because whenever it's on it's always one I've seen)
9. Xena: Warrior Princess (I was a total Xena addict when it was on)!
10. Pee-wee's Playhouse (I've never seen a single episode, or Pee-Wee's Big Adventure)
11. Mystery Science Theater 3000 (I've seen a lot of them, but I don't think half)
12. Family Guy *
13. Babylon 5 (I really do need to watch these)
14. Beauty and the Beast * (Loved this show! I've got a couple of the episodes on VHS, and I would totally buy the DVD's if such a thing existed.)
15. Quantum Leap
16. My So-called Life
17. The Avengers
18. Doctor Who (But I've mostly only seen the Tom Baker ones, and the doctor after him.)

20. Twin Peaks *
21. Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman
22. H.R. Pufnstuf
