Wasn't that a great book! And yes, it's a little scary to sometimes realize how deeply I've been bitten by the birding bug. 'Spent several hours birding around the Four Rivers CA in 105-108 degree weather late yesterday afternoon. I need to have my head checked!! ;)

If we can't laugh at ourselves, we have no right to laugh at anyone else.

I, for one, have been avoiding "The Big Year" like the plague as I know it
will only serve to make me more miserable that I can't spend more time
birding.  As a graduate student, I'm called/required/forced into the lab
more often than not.  Reading about people with free enough schedules to do
as they please won't help the feeling of entrapment I already have.  *sigh*

Maybe I'll go watch the movie.  At least with humor added, I can get some
endorphines (from the laughter) pumping and alleviate my suffering.  (End
melodramatic moment.)
