porcupines are cool. we saw one outside last night sniffing and pawing at the ground. i got a couple of good pictures that i'll put on when i get home. we are going swimming later. vacation is boring but we have to deal with it anyway. you know how people often say "vacation has got to be one of the greatest pleasures in life." well i do not agree. this is MY saying. "vacation has got to be one of the greatest ANNOYENCES in life." like it? and also if it is OK with Elraniia i will be doing a comment contest as well in the month of May.
