Today’s Photo, 11/27/13

Beluga whale at the Shedd Aquarium, Chicago, November 2013.

In other news, I am so close to finishing the novel I can taste it. Off to write.

  1. Also, while I know many people have valid ethical concerns about large mammals at aquariums/amusement parks, please let’s not actually have that conversation in this thread. I don’t have time to actively moderate it today because I’m finishing a novel. When/if I do pop by and see comments on that topic here (or responses to those comments) I will likely simply snip them out. Please save it for another time. Thank you.

  2. Oh, I thought you’d never say anything about the whales, but you waited ’til my birthday to post a picture. Thanks! I can’t take a trip to Chicago without checking in on them.

  3. Given this crowd, I can’t be the only one who’s wondering what being close to finishing a novel tastes like.

    I’m guessing it doesn’t taste like chicken.

  4. Thanks so much for taking time to touch base daily during this crunch period. You are a good friend. Hope someday I can return that favor to someone else, even if it isn’t you! ;-)

  5. Just curious, but what is the taste of nearly-finished novel? Sweet? Salty? Bitter? Sour? Umami? Does it taste like chicken?

  6. Great picture! Reminds me of photos outside the Apollo LEM during descent. Ohhh, wait .. . so the whole thing WAS staged in the Shedd Aquarium! :-)

    Anyway, best wishes on the new novel and thanks for the fine Chicago pics!

  7. I love the taste of nearly finished novel in the morning….

    You know… somday this novel is going to end.

  8. You have to be up early before the comments use all the good references :(

    Good luck with the novel, whatever it tastes like. Pie, I’d wager. Or churros.

  9. I, for one, am looking forward to tasting your new novel. Don’t ruin it for me by revealing in advance what it tastes like!

  10. So your next book is the “Old Mans War Cookbook”

    That would certainly be novel, but I hope you went light on the Rraery recipes :)

  11. Where’s the naked Russian woman who may or may not be a scientist swimming in what may or may not be subzero temperatures? Because that’s what I think of now when I read “Beluga whale”.

  12. Tom Moore here.

    My comment on FaceBook regarding Google Glass….:

    I think I’ll write a book. titled the “Bandwidth Masters”. Because that’s how we will define how/where this tech will be constrained. But that is so terrestrial.
    I got a SPOT messenger to let people know how I’m doing on my ventures. GlobalStar (SPOT) just let me know they can sell me a passive device to put… on my car? lawnmower? that will tell me where is, where it went… etc

    You are a fine writer; Red Shirts, well… But if anyone can move this idea into a story, I think it would be you.
    Best Regards,
    Tom Moore
