Yes, this is an entry partially about Steve Irwin.

I am now imagining that once his children grow up, they will go a mission to track down the stingray that killed their father and take their revenge upon it a la The Life Aquatic. I think that would be awesome.

Conversation between Gennie and I at the pet shop yesterday:
Gennie (looking at a big bird cage containing 20-30 brightly coloured budgerigars): Looks like they're having a cocktail party.
Andrew: Or a cockatiel party.
Gennie looks around for something heavy to throw at Andrew.

Chicago, 23rd-28th August

The Museum of Science and Industry, the only in-place surviving building from the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition.

Some of the streets around the University of Chicago are lit by old fashioned gas powered lamps! They were the real deal, you could feel the heat coming off them.

The Roosevelt Metra light railway station is very rickety and looks ancient.
