Went out. Climbed things all day at Chatfield Hollow--and I actually climbed some things, like a climby thing, though I wish I had taped my )*&^)*&^)*(&^ wrists. Came home. Made green chicken enchiladas and Alton Brown's coconut cake.

The Jeff and Alisa de-skinned and grated TWO ENTIRE COCONUTS.

I'd like to say something about that cake, but I really can't think of anything beyond oh my god it's amazing and I can't believe the frosting came out. The frosting, you see, involves beating a meringue over a double boiler, and I was seriously convinced it was going to completely fail.

But it didn't.

Oh, my god, it was good. Oh, my god, I never want to see another slice of cake. If you think you have eated coconut cake, you have not.

Oh my god.

I die now.

I still never need to eat again.

A couple of photos from climbing yesterday:

Steven found a nest of baby birds near where we rigged a 5.9. I took this with the zoom setting, standing on a nearby boulder. Nests full of baby birds pulsate in unison. Who knew? It's very Lovecraftian.

Scenic Chatfield Hollow, rigged for top-rope. TBRE and The Jeff, for scale.

And because no post is complete without some gratuitous house pets, a Giant Ridiculous Dog and his pretty princess pony. (TBRE maintains he's a pretty princess. He does kind of mince like a sad cat when confronted with icky wet grass or mud. So she gave him a lavender unicorn.)

Today we went to Rocky Neck, so stillsostrange could do some New England Rocky Seacoast Deep One research.

Apparently, it's prom season for antique horrors from the deep: the living fossils were getting frisky.

Also, the latest entrant in Signage: An Occasional Series:
