SeaLife DC1400I’m home, after about 35 hours in planes, airports, and buses.  (The trip out took 44 hours, so coming back I was lucky.)

Though I’ve had a couple nights in my own bed, I’m still cross-eyed with jetlag, a totally screwed-up sleep schedule, and readjusting to living at altitude.

So why don’t you look at this nice picture of a lionfish while I try to readjust my biorhythms?  I will avoid cliche descriptions of its “deadly spines,” and remark only that you probably don’t want to use one of these guys as a pillow.

Lionfish are native to the Pacific and Indian Oceans, but have recently been running amok in the Caribbean, where they have no natural enemies.  So the rule is simple: be careful if you’re in the Pacific, but if you see them in the Atlantic, kill on sight.

To the uneducated eye, the lionfish seems to have a gaudy display of… feathers.

Ha. It’s always nice to know that you can actually sympathize with us poor sea-level livers when we get to Snow Bear. And as you’ve said to me many times: “easy on the alcohol at first. sleep when you feel the need to. breathe. it will take about a week to produce more red blood cells.” 😀
