Hi. I don’t have a whole bunch of time to talk today so I’ll just offer some images and links. I’m almost beside myself waiting to watch last night’s Game of Thrones and I have to avoid all mention of it everywhere or I might burst out crying. Although it is essentially a soap opera, it is a very well done soap opera and appeals to the Anglophile in me because it just feels like the progression of power on the European content pre-modern time. Also, Jon is wicked hot. Just sayin’.
You’ve heard me mention my friend Ali P.? Well, here she is in action. At the start of the piece, she is front row, all the way to the dancers’ left. This piece is mesmerizing to me…
Not sure why I’m posting this except that in light of his deserved accolades for The Avengers, I think I just wanted to say that Whedon has it right: humanists are the true believers.
Something kind of cool has been happening…I’ve been getting some pretty serious compliments from men lately. It’s freakin’ awesome! I met a guy in Georgetown Friday who told me I reminded him of his best friend’s fiance, “the sweetest girl I know,” he said. Thanks Perry.
Speaking of Georgetown, here’s a shot of the table Ash and I managed to score at J. Paul’s. That was a good dinner.
The Coach sent out a reminder for our game Friday with this awesome paragraph included: “Just a quick reminder for our game this week. We play Providence on Friday on the Monument Grounds, at 16th and Constitution. First pitch is at 6:30. Warm ups at 6:00. If you haven’t RSVP’d for that yet, please do so. The game will be followed by Mackenzie’s graduation party (which will be followed by a blackout, which will be followed by a wicked hangover).” Congrats Mackie. We’ll be there to help you celebrate.
Hot from the desk of “No Shit Sherlock”. BTW, this is my hood. Mt. Pleasant represent!
You know you’re at the bottom of the food chain when a chicken owns you.
Seriously, can we all just get on board dismissing these simpletons already?
When I owned a house, I had a grill. I cannot tell you how much I miss it. Paging Dr. Brian…
It’s just going to get more fun from here. I met a guy at a co-worker’s Cinco de Mayo party who was going into private practice as an intellectual property lawyer. Smart guy. As a native of Chicago, he made me reconsider some things about that city. And I appreciate that. Also, my co-worker’s roommate believes he has solved a 500 year old mystery. He screened this at the party. The dude has a PhD in physics from MIT so I’m inclined to take him seriously…
Finally, hot from the desk of “Useful Progress,” it might be time to convert some of that rare, original stuff on tape to something with some staying power so it doesn’t get lost to the mists of time. Because “West Texas Revival” is a cool song.
I may have posted this recently but I just love this band. I saw them play live and, because they are purely acoustic, they would flat out yell if you talked during the performance. I dug it.
