massive stimulus package

Point of interest: I was recently told that a former Little League teammate of mine is now a softcore pornstar making movies for Playboy and traveling around with them as part of a live softcore show. Oh, and his last name in real life is Cox. Clearly his life path was determined before he ever had a chance to do anything about it.


cruisers of the caribbean

As it turns out, I owe you a blog post. I was intending to post a few pictures of our cruise, but the pictures are very large and take more time to upload than I'm willing to give. Suffice it to say, the beaches were white, the seas were blue, and the sunsets were orange. Highlights included all the free food we could stuff down our throats, and not vomiting after stuffing all that food down our throats

Other highlights included sitting in inner tubes as we floated down a Belizean river that flowed through old Mayan caves, sailing within sight of the Cuban coast, and buying a sweet skull Christmas ornament at a shop in Mexico. I'm very excited about hanging a blue painted skull from our tree this holiday season.

I will also note that the cruise was full of New Yorkers and, my goodness, they loudly confirmed almost every stereotype you've ever heard. They seemed a little like very rich dessert -- all well and good in small portions, but a bit overwhelming if you get too much.

More to come, more to come.
