Here is an amazing, amazing article in the NY Times about the effects poaching and violence have on elephant culture, paralling it with the effects war torn Uganda has had on it's survivors. It's really an illuminating read.

I just got the new issue of Seattle Magazine where I am picked as one the the "26 most influential people in Seattle". How did that happen?! I actually don't know any of the staff so I feel quite pleased with myself about it. K and I get to go to some fancy pants party where I can feel totally intimidated by all the brainiacs and entrepenures on the list. Yay!!

Okay- more pics from Ugly Overload...I am having a great time looking at that site. The author posts stuff about the animals beeing ugly, scary, and mean which I'm not totally down with...I'm sure it's all in fun and some of it IS really funny- but ugly animals get killed for being ugly sometimes and you know, don't want to foster any bad ideas in dumb ass readers.
Here are some pix of bats looking like they are laughing and smiling...and then a hairless cat just because it's a great picture and looks like a bat itself.

Lookit all those lil...flaps!

That's nice.
I thought Cute Overload might be my fav webiste until I saw Ugly Overload.
The thing is...these creatures aren't ugly to me, they are wonderous! Just not cute n' fluffy.

I wish this dog was mine.
