I Believe In My Noodly Master, Hon
We got back from our mini-vacation Saturday. Emily said she really felt like she just came back from a vacation. I think I did, too. But I also had to be reminded of it, so I don’t think it was the same vacation for me as it was for her. But regardless it was amazing. We did the math and figured out of the five places we stayed, we were in no place longer than 3 nights. 3 nights in Rye, NY. We [heart] Hiltons. 3 nights in Manhattan. We [heart] pretending to live in midtown and Tribeca is our new jam. But Bubby’s, you don’t accept AmEx?! Bobby would be very unhappy with you. Three nights in Western Maryland. We [heart] marrying our two good friends. What an unforgettable experience. 3 nights in OC with Em’s mom and boyfriend. We [heart] OC. One can never window shop for air-brushed t-shirts enough on the boardwalk. And 3 nights in Duck, NC with the in-laws in a 10 bedroom hizzouse on the Atlantic Ocean. OBX is the new (and closer) Cape Cod. I can dig it.
I tell you, vacations with Emily are perfection. I am the driver and Emily is the navigator. Who needs a GPS when you have Emily and a good U.S. map?! We make the best team ever. And Lily is definitely our co-pilot these days. She did, for the most part, wonderfully the whole trip through. She’s incredible. It’s amazing how many states she’s already been to. More than I had been to when I started college. MD. PA. NY. NJ. OH. VA. WV. NC. That’s almost 20%. And did I mention she’s 3 months?! Holy crap.
And today, I decided to check how my site rendered in IE. I sort of apologize for not really checking. Well. Er. Not really. I actually thought to ask a few friends to double check it. But after looking at my iChat list, few of my friends even have PC’s anymore. It’s a great state of affairs, but sure makes it hard to cross-check for the 51% of my visitors who still use IE, not to mention a Windows-based machine. Um. Remind me again why people still use IE? For drizzle.
Recently acquired music from Other Music:
Isn’t it funny that Tower Records [which used to be across the street from Other Music] is no longer around while Other Music still is? It’s no longer Other Music.
