Leap Day

What kind of special thing should I do for Leap Day?
I am still trying to figure that out.

Well the main thing that I did was figure out that my rss feed is here.
I saw that my feed was working right in Google Reader, even though I thought it was completely broken. Well, the address looks funny but at least I found the one that works now!

Delicious Music

Lately I have been discovering my music on
A sampling:
  • She + Him = Zooey Dechanel and M Ward - some of the tracks from their March 18th album Vol. 1 - Bring it on Home to Me is probably my favorite.
  • The Kinks - Waterloo Sunset
  • AA Bondy - American Hearts
  • American Spring - Forever
  • BOA - Duvet
  • Feist covering the Kinks - Nothing in the World Can Stop me Worrying 'bout That Girl
  • Irma Thomas - I Gave You Everything
  • Nada Surf - Blankest Year
  • Of Montreal covering the Kinks - Do You Remember Walter?
  • Paloma Faith - Love Ya
  • Petra Hayden covering the Beach Boys - God Only Knows
  • Rosie Thomas - Much Farther to Go
  • They Might Be Giants - Am I Awake?
  • Vandaveer - However Many Takes it Takes
Yes, I realize this list reveals a bit of a Kinks fixation. I am woefully undereducated about music, especially anything from the 70s that isn't disco or country.

Germany and Prague

Deutschland Praha

In about 5 weeks I will be going back to Europe, this time visiting Germany and Prague.
I am flying into Munich, flying up to Berlin, taking the train down to Prague and then another train back over to Munich. I got a flight on Lufthansa from Munich to Berlin for about half the cost of a train ticket, and since the train is over 6 hours and the flight is just over 1 hour, I am saving time as well.

I got a Blackberry yesterday and my boyfriend got an iPhone. So we have spent the day ignoring each other and playing with our new toys.

Panda Trivia

There are only four cities in America that have Pandas on display in their zoos: Washington, DC, San Diego, Memphis and Atlanta. The only other cities outside of Asia with Pandas are Mexico City, Berlin, Vienna and Madrid. If I go through either Berlin or Vienna on my way to Prague, I'll try to see one.

There are two subspecies of Giant Pandas, Ailuropoda melanoleuca melanoleuca which is the most common, and Ailuropoda melanoleuca qinlingensis, which only live in the Quinling Mountains.

While Giant Pandas are classified in the bear family, the Red Panda is not a bear, but is more closely related to raccoons and is considered the only living member of the Ailuridae family.
