JohnK's Health, and Last Night's Geology Class

Came in from last night's Geology class around 11:10 pm, and had a pretty good evening.

It was great to get back to the class and the academic world, not to mention the social interaction with my teacher, her assistant, and the other students... and the Geology part of the class was pretty cool, too! :)

The pain in my chest, likely due to some coughing the past day or so, was pretty bad last night, but I was also in pain on the right side of my chest, into my ear as well and the shoulder, but it seems that the shoulder and ear pain and stuff has subsided (though we'll see how that goes as the day progresses). The chest pain this morning is still pretty bad, so I'm trying to take things easy. I suspect I may have hurt or strained myself a bit too much on Sunday when spross was helping me out with stuff for the CanGames auction (see this blog post for more on that).

I've got tonight's Geology class to think about, and am looking forward to that. Plus I need to do a bit of game writing when I get home from work. Speaking of which, back to the grind.

Aethereal Dinosaurs

Yesterday, Brian Switek posted to his Dinosaur Tracking Smithsonian blog a neat piece on the movie version of Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World from 1925, complete with the Youtube link to the full-length movie in question.

Arthur Conan Doyle's Aethereal Dinosaurs

Neat perspective on the film, some interesting thoughts about it and Conan Doyle's work, and of course, the movie! :)
