Roller Coaster


Apologies for my absence: I’ve been unwell, but am now on the road to recovery. I hope it’s a straight one.

But my life does seem to be in one of those roller coaster phases. And though I dream of a place of consistency and calm, I’m perhaps destined not to reside there. (But I do remain optimistic.)

I’ve chosen the X2 to illustrate this post. The X2 adds a new twist to the old roller coaster ride. It has seats that extend off the track, allowing them to rotate 360 degrees ... while zooming along with the train.

Please excuse me. I think I’m going to be...

Poor thing. Feel better soon!

I feel sick just looking at the roller coaster.

Curl up with a good book and feel better.

I love rollercoasters!

I hate being sick!

Hope you're better soon. :)

Travis, Natalie, Cate, and Stuart:

Thank you! I feel much better today -- almost back to normal. :)

Are you sure this isn't where the UK receives radio signals from Venezuela?

Definitely looks gyroscopicstomachoid.

Whirlochre: In good weather it receives signals from Venezuela and Kazakhstan.

Hope you feel all better by now! Fun shot of X2. We were just at Magic Mountain, but that's one that we didn't do. Turns out doing too many flips in a row now has an adverse effect on our nausea reflexes. Oops...

Caryn: I envy your trip to Magic Mountain, and hope you had a wonderful time! Whether I’d actually have the guts for the X2 is debatable. With roller coaster rides, as with all good things, you have to know your limits... :)
