Literature, Science, and Skyscrapers

For most of this semester, I've taken advantage of sunny weather whenever I could by exploring beautiful natural areas. I've climbed mountains, gazed at waterfalls, hiked around lakes, canoed in a peaceful bay, and wandered around a sheep farm.

This week is different. I'm off to a conference in a big city.

I'll be eating in restaurants, going to museums, riding the train, walking through parks, and wandering through city neighborhoods. I'll be staying with my sister, Urban Sophisticate, for two nights before joining up with a bunch of conference friends and staying in a hotel suite for the rest of the week. I am looking forward to late night conversations, leisurely meals, cool sessions that explore new ideas, a Saturday night dance, and the fun of exploring a city.

Is there any chance you're going to City With Many Monuments near me? 'Cause if so, could we do a blogger coffee date?

liz: I think you were born in the city I am going to -- north of where you are now. It's the City Like No Other.

Have a great time in big city! I'm sure it'll be better and more relaxing than our upcoming trip to Small Southern City...

Linda (FM): I can answer that. No.

Aw, come on, Dr. K. If we are going to room together, you have to pose naked for the blog. It's a rule.

Unless you get your brother to pose instead ....

Oh like doing that too. I'm such a Country Bumpkin that Cities are like a new adventure for me.

Enjoy.

Sounds fun. City Like No Other is where I got knocked up. No unclothed pictures were involved.
