Three Days Without Internet...

I woke up Thursday morning and my Comcast cable was out (this is the first time in 3 years so I wasn't too upset), and it just got fixed yesterday afternoon. Was odd being without an internet connection for that long. Can you believe, I actually read a book? All 600 pages starting Friday night and ending Saturday afternoon (it was Battle Royale by Koushun Takami, very good).

The bringer of pain...

If you didn't already know, there's a new addition to our family, a new VW Bug. Not only is it fun to drive, but I bet you remember when you were a kid and played that wonderful travel game "Slug Bug".

This is a new sadistic pleasure of mine. Any time I drive past a group on the road, especially if it includes young kids, I just have to check the rear view mirror after driving by. Yesterday I caught a dad nailing both his little boys on the shoulder and I could see him yelling "SLUG BUG!!!" Now that's just plain fun...
