If you're going to a barbecue during Pride Week, what else could you make? Had a fantastic visit at the house of good friends, with other good friends in attendance. Nothing bad about that.

This marks the beginning of photos on my blog, and I want to thank Jen for helping me realize how important it is to share the visual as well as the written.

I also need to thank Verizon, my new cell provider, and the people who sold me my fancy new phone with the built-in camera. Should be lots of fun.

Kyrie elison...

We went to the symphony last night for their production of Verdi's Requiem. I thought it was...okay. I read the notes ahead of time, and if I understand them correctly, this was intended as a "holy" mass, written for a dead poet, and written by an atheist. Huh. We went to the symphony a few times when we lived in Atlanta, and while this group seems technically more proficient, the music we listened to in the ATL was a lot more interesting. This looks like it would be more fun.

They played it all the way through without an intermission (we were almost late from dinner, and I had thought we'd maybe miss a movement and then get seated...glad we got there at the beginning, I guess), which was hard on the ol' glutes. Not the comfiest seats in town.

Game over, over...

This headline epitomizes how idiotic it is to think that you can fight a "war" on terror. Did someone in the Defense Department think that Iraq is a game of Stratego, and al-Zarqawi was the flag?

The Number of the Beast...sort of...

Hey, if you go in for the apocalyptic, then today should be a fun one for you. Not only can you now see the remake of The Omen (which, based on ads I've seen, was made purely to use today's date in advertisements...well, that and to save money on a script), but according to this site, you should spend the day blowing out your eardrums, as well as the eardrums of those around you. Enjoy!

My wife gave me a wonderful surprise this weekend: a trip to San Francisco! It's a fun city; I highly recommend it.

What was great about playing tourist for the weekend was that the simple act of getting out of the house made all the difference in the world. We checked into a swanky hotel, did the tourist thing, relaxed, and then had a fantastic meal before calling it a night.

Very relaxing, very fun, and after the last few weeks (which have involved a car accident and our hot water heater going kaput), very appreciated!

If you enjoyed the season finale of Lost as much as we did, and if you are equally as confused as we all are, the Lostpedia is a fantastic way to get sucked into the twists and turns of your favorite passengers of flight 815. If nothing else, it's a great way to catch up over the summer while we await season three. Also, the official website of the Hanso Foundation is a lot of fun, too. Namaste!

BTW, if you work at our Thai delivery place, and were wondering why we didn't call this past Wednesday, it's because the season is over. I promise, we're okay.
