Antarctica Update: Standby

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Well, things couldn’t be better. I accepted an offer as an Alternate. I passed my medical and dental qualifications (PQ), my background check (marching in a few protests didn’t mess me up), and all the other stuff they do.
Getting past all these hurdles is great news. Although it doesn’t make sense for me to go to the ice this year, I am much closer to going when it does make sense.

Rumi Quote

“People who renounce desire
often turn, suddenly,
into hypocrites!”
From Two Ways of Running The Essential Rumi
Translations by Coleman Barks with John Moyne.

Funny I should run into this with Larry Craig in the news.
