Cheetahs of the Serengeti Plains: Group Living in an Asocial Species has arrived. Expect to see an essay on cheetah sociodynamics and how they apply to me soon.

And my site's up again!

I am reading Animal Underworld: Inside America's Black Market for Rare and Exotic Species which naturally I find rather distressing because despite planning on going into designing zoo exhibits, I'm acutely aware of the darker side of zoos. Did I fully understand the scope? No. But inadequate habitats, overbreeding, questionable sales and purchases... I knew those existed.

I still don't believe that zoos are innately bad, and I think that zoos feel morally insulated from what happens to their animals once they drop off the map, but I'll be damned if I'll go into zoological exhibit design and not try to use my position and any contacts to make things better. I don't plan on going into the job I plan on going into because I want the money.

Today will be a good day, though, I think. I will listen to Deep Forest and contemplate the miracles of modern ambient French music. I will play Dungeons and Dragons, and hopefully the druid will show up, and I will send Sixlife on aerial missions above tropical islands. I will probably stretch out and have my back scratched or sunbathe. And I will probably finish up the Nigerian lava cat for the Wanderer's Library. If I get that done, I will start work on And I was Present at the Death of the God of Tylacines, also for the Wanderer's Library. Or perhaps I shall work on poetry. Or drawing.
