Like my brownhouse:

05: crack is whack in Novi Sad - I manage to purchase a beer at a store in small Serbian city.
06: Mohács blend - I just wanted to say that. A day in a smallish city in southern Hungary on the last full day of the vegan cruise.
07: iron shoes and pálinka - The last day in Budapest.
08: three movies and a sick skinny Scot - Crossing the Atlantic with a sick stranger trapped in the window seat.

22: deprocrastination - Once I undetake one long-procrastinated project, I undertake another.
23: ambulance chaser chasers - At a law office for some reason.
24: not doing independent study in the forest - A lumber run on a nice spring day that the dogs don't take advantage of.
25: wet pile of pinecones - Today I learn that a wet pinecone takes up less volume than a dry one.
