Anyway. Oversleeping is bad mmmkay. Moving on...ice cream!!!
Friend of mine had her wisdom teeth extracted, so naturally I briefly crawled out of my hermit hole to

On Sunday I went to the California Academy of Science to look at stuff. They had a 10-minute earthquake demonstration that stimulated the experience of being in an earthquake. I opted out of that experience because I've already lived through quite a few. The exhibits were interesting to read though, because it shows safe places to find drinking water in your house. My only issue is that I don't think I'd like to drink water out of the toilet bowl because I don't trust the water not to have any residual chemicals for cleaning agents. Maybe as a last resort.
They had baby ostriches as part of the earthquake exhibit, to explain how continental drift led to the development of several related, but distinct, species of flightless birds. More importantly, baby ostriches are fluffy.
Inside the micro-rainforest, a walkway winds up to the third floor where you can then take an elevator to the basement/aquarium level, which is below water level. The first thing you see in the elevator is the glow of lights under water and the fish. The aquarium is sectioned off into tanks of varying sizes to let you glimpse what the natural environment is like. The coral reef makes me want to go scuba diving someday.
|Giant fish! I forgot what it is.|
