June 30th

I flew in last night. Airports are such strange places. People get so stressed when they are there. *I* get so stressed when I get to the airport.

I saw Memento today. Highly recommended.

Are these two logos (#1 and #2) totally the same? I guess they’re not exact on closer inspection, but both Shannon and I immediately though they were after seeing the preview for the upcoming movie on tv. They’re pretty close.

Also, scandal in the voting process! Suspected voter fraud in the Road to Springfield tournament. In the matchup between Lionel Hutz and Diamond Joe Quimby, no less.

I only slept about 2 hours last night, if that…stupid acid reflux. I knew I shouldn’t have eaten the whole thing.

I leave tommorow for Arizona. I’m excited. My first real trip to try out my new camera. And I’m going to the Grand Canyon, how do you photograph that? I’ve been thinking, planning, and scheming in my mind. Who knows.

This is pretty cool, www.roadtospringfield.com where you can vote for your favorite secondary character from the Simpsons, bracket-style à la march madness. Things are currently entering the second round. Current match-up is Mayor Quimby v. Lionel Hutz. As I always say, Vote Quimby.

Tigers?!? Again?!?!? Against the Royals?!?!

Went up north this past weekend and, among other things, went fishing. Caught this beauty. As you would expect, I was pretty excited. Pictures to come…

Also, there are pictures of Shannon’s preschool ESL class here.

This post on Jason Kottke’s weblog kind of sums up some things I’ve been thinking about lately: How much the internet, or the web, amazes me.

Everytime I think about some of the services that the internet can provide, it amazes me: package tracking and instant messaging to name a few. Online shopping, too. I was thinking the other day about the amount of information I take for granted these days, I wouldn’t know where to find things without the internet. What did people do just ten years ago? What did I do? The other day I needed to find out where the area code 847 was. I found out in about 3 seconds. What else would I do…go to the library?

Also, I just noticed that Amazon is giving free shipping when you buy two cds. I think I’ll have to take them up on that.

Fathersday pics section now contains thumbnails. Check it out. I’ll probably be trying to add this to the other galleries, but it could take me a bit….

This is interesting. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, but phrases and words linked to other content on the web (many of the links are outdated…). It’s sort of a new look at the poem in the context of the web.
