Beach and Dolphins in Corpus

Here are a few more pictures from the Corpus trip - one from my brief sunset stop by the beach and then pictures from the Texas State Aquarium, where I participated in a Deckside Dolphin Experience. It was so fun to play with the dolphins!!

And, because I'm all about the practical tip: Notice how well you can block a wall of water simply by lifting your leg. :P

Around Corpus Christi Beach

Amidst the never-boring conundrum that is my life, there are some fun moments.

Here I am (in the middle) riding horses on Corpus Christi beach. I had to include this picture so you could see Ashley - the mere fact that she is doing ballet moves on top of a horse should tell you how awesome she is. ;)

We also went moped-ing around Corpus Christi beach. I must admit I am a bit of a chicken with certain things (and a daredevil with others,) and riding a moped made me a little nervous. :O But, at least I got the pink one. :D

My Life

My life is a giant pot of uncomfortableness, stirred often.

Trace Evidence

I had to get fingerprinted this morning. A lot of different organizations have been requiring this lately, and it's a good thing, I'm sure, for most purposes. At the same time, it feels kind of weird.

I have a vague remembrance of giving a thumbprint in grade school as part of some sort of kids' safety initiative - perhaps involving McGruff, the Crime Dog - but this time they did all of my fingers and my thumbs and took a picture. Something about it was a little, "Whoah!" Like, "There goes my privacy!" Not that I'll likely ever have to worry about being a suspect or anything like that, but all the same ... What if I decide to re-invent myself and go chase tornadoes in Tornado Alley? Or, be a librarian in a remote, small town? All it would take is that one discarded paper cup for someone to track me down (hat tip: all my TRU/Court TV shows.)

Of course, this is coming from someone who jokes (sort of) about putting chips in her future children, just like they do for cats and dogs. Hey - really - why not?
