...so what the heck took me so long to join this parade?
Anyway, because my facebook account is filled with people who really aren't interested in my vacation (Marc Shaiman, do you care I'm in Alaska? No? Didn't think so!), and because my parents couldn't see my photos from my last vacation as I warned them away from joining the evil, evil Facebook, I thought I'd start a blog so that my nearest and dearest could see whatever. And by whatever I mean -- at the moment, anyway -- photos and random thoughts from Alaska this week. And next week I may just abandon this endeavor because I have other things to write, things that, you know, are less narcissistic.
