A Hot Pink Cultural Slug and Trails of Corporate-Sponsored Ooze: Yes, Capital Pride Time Is Nigh

**Updated 9:40AM 8/15/2014: See below.**

A giant (up to 8") fluorescent / hot pink slug oozing about on the slopes of Mount Kaputar, the highest point in the isolated Nandewar Range of northern New South Wales, Australia. Article here.

In the meantime ...

I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to update this blog tonight (i.e., Thursday). I intend to post my Friday night musical interlude.

I had a really good gym workout tonight including a 5.5 mile jog and a solid half mile of swimming laps in the pool (actually, 36 laps where a lap is one pool width). I also had about 40 miles of weight-lifting, but I'm kinda bad at that.

The weather has turned hot, humid, and shitty. It reached 90F at KDCA and KIAD on Thursday and 92F at KBWI with dew points in the 65F to 70F range. (Of note, the Maryland Science Center, KDMH, reached 94F.) Tonight is muggy and humid with no precipitation anywhere in the area and nearly calm winds.

OK, I'm done for now.

Goodnight.
