By popular request, here are some (admittedly fairly crappy) photos of our Monkey Tail Tree. It's really big. It's big enough that it can be seen by spy satellites (I'm not kidding -- if I can find the satellite photo I'll post that too).

A Dream

| | Comments (3)

I had a dream the other night where I could relive other people's lives (using their bodies) at will, but could only "visit" each body once (after I left I had to go back to my own or someone else's). And my regular body aged at normal speed while I was away. I got kinda carried away and by the time I got back to my normal body, I was balding.
