I know I had the day off and I know I'm heading on this major trip and I know I should have loads to talk about. However, I couldn't think of a thing to say tonight. Thus, I present you, dear readers with this single bit of information: a mineral native to Sweden, South Africa and Scotland that is named for the town of Cummington, Massachusetts. The mineral is called cummingtonite. I laugh inside every time I pronounce its name.
Tomorrow, more combined excitement-anxiety-dread-joy at the thought of the quickly approaching OZ/NZ trip.
