Since I couldn't convince anyone to come down here for the Preakness, I'm going to make a trip up to Hanover the following week.
Actually, Kirsten and I are both coming up to go to the Pompy tent sale to see if we can save some money on a table for our kitchen, but we're making a mini-vacation out of it.
So, Memorial Day weekend... anyone want to go out to dinner or ?
Building on Tim's comments on Bonds, here's an interesting read from espenthemagazine, looking at the Mets' clubhouse drug scene. Completely unsurprising in a way, but still disappointing as a fan of the game.
No one spoke openly about shooting up, but it wasn't hard to guess who was on the juice. And no one was pointing fingers.

I had to upgrade the database behind the blog from mySQL 4.0 to 5.0. It wasn't a minor thing.

Unabashedly catering to the 21-35 male audience, Howard Stern now has his own channel. And this week only, you get a free preview. I have been unable to register using Firefox, so others may want to try OmniWeb/Safari/Opera/IE/etc... anyway, enjoy?
I was just bidding on a wide-angle lens for my big camera and someone outbid me in the last 5 seconds.
Such a pain in the ass. On the other hand, it looks like there's another similar lens up now, so I'll just try bidding on that one instead.
