the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series are great audio books for long car rides. So are the Sherlock Holmes mysteries.

For reading, I loved "Another Roadside Attraction" by Tom Robbins. "The Monkey Wrench Gang" by Edward Abbey, "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austin, and "The Illustrated Man" by Ray Bradbury.

The Road was great. So was "The Day of the Triffids" by John Wyndham.

I have a sneaking suspicion that my partner is more radical than me but lets me come to my own conclusions in my own time. I was a liberal when we started dating so long ago and while I've undergone transformation, he has always remained the same in his perspectives but never pressuring and ever gentile in his approach. I love him for it and here I am.

Photographing people, cooking dishes I've never tried, getting lost on purpose, playing with my child at the beach, smoking with friends around a campfire, and of course, video games.

Dairy is really scary. I had no idea how powerful this industry is until I started working in veterinary medicine.
Also, I am living in a region where the environment has experienced horrible degradation because of the amount of dairy farms present. Environmental regulations require the industrial farms to spray their fields with feces to distribute the waste, however the farmers often will pool the manure which results in massive spills. They will even spray the shit when it's winter, so when the snow melts ... Almost all of the surficial water in the region is contaminated, causing massive losses of native species and increased water treatment. I see that New Zealand is also experiencing these same effects due to the rapid growth in the dairy industry there.
