Bushwhackin'

Nice, nice weekend here—both entertaining and productive. Got in some good caching each day since Friday, including a couple of much-needed healthy bushwhacks in the woods. Had to explain geocaching to the local cops for about the hundredth time, which was okay since—as is typical here—the officer was very friendly and understanding. Sometimes I feel like a geocachevangelist.

In betwixt the caching adventures, I watched Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes, which are a couple of my old favorites. Back when I was a wee lad, doing the pretend ape-thing and hunting humans made for some exciting times; it's nice to watch the movies and recapture some of that old excitement. I suppose I'll end up watching Escape, Conquest, and Battle too, but they're nowhere near as special as the first two.

My month of bachelorhood is drawing near its end. All in all, I've made out very well. Was very productive during this period: overhauled the house, ate well, got out and about with friends fairly frequently, got some writing done. Most of all, some of the crushing pressure that's been having such a bad effect on me subsided a bit. Here's hoping for some extended relief.

I have a soft spot for the old Planet of the Apes movies too. One of the first novels I tried to write (in middle school) amounted to Planet of the Apes fan fiction. Crazy, isn't it?
