I actually cooked something

The zoo is collecting old cellphones for recycling, in an effort to raise money. I took them three today, but the place you're supposed to drop them off is close for the season. I found a volunteer who stays near the chimpanzees, and she didn't know what I was talking about. Not that I mind going back to the zoo, but geez people. How are you supposed to raise money when you make it this hard for people to help you? Also, river otters are hard to photograph in the water...

After the zoo, I went around the block to the lake that butts up to it. I got to use the ice skates my mom got me for Christmas for the first time. This was my first outdoor ice skating experience. I learned two things: 1) Skating on ice that has snow on it isn't that much different than ice with no snow; 2) Breaking in ice skates hurts as much as they say.

When I got home, I decided to try out this "cooking" thing everyone talks about. I made Italian Hamburgers. I swear, it was me! They didn't taste too bad either, but I don't see how it was any better than something out of the microwave...

You cooked! I'm so proud! That means you get to take over any and all cooking duties when I get back!

Cooking... sigh. I'm impressed. And otters are hard to photograph no matter what! They are so fast. So slippery fast.

My dear, it is a bit unsettling to read a title about cooking and then read the first 2 words in your post "the zoo". :-)

OK, I got scared, because I saw the heading & then scrolled down to the otter pic. I was like ... woah, she cooked an otter!

I'll go back & read the post now.
