I found the most perfect place to sleep on the island. It's near the road, but it's tucked down inside a few big dunes, so that should keep the Gulf Islands National Seashore park rangers away. I'll post pics as soon as I get 'em scanned.

I scanned a lot of pictures at the computer lab, but when I got back to my apt, they weren't on my H or I drives (space the school gives students that they can access via ftp for personal and web storage, respectively), so I'll have to scan 'em again soon this week. The student server has been really unreliable lately, and I think there's a scheduled maintenance shut-down sometime this week, so if none of my pics are working and the blog looks weird, it should be back to normal within 24 hours or so.

I'm in one of those "life-is-so-short-wonder-if-I'll-ever-get-married-wonder-if-I'll-be-happy-with-my-life-the-day-I-die" funks. Happens whenever I start thinking. Somebody keep me away from those cloves!

Anti-war crowd mostly shuts up .... mostly
"...with the war in its waning hours, all is quiet on the western coast -- leading conservatives to suggest that Garofalo and her fellow travelers are in full retreat from a public backlash and feeling chastened by a swift American victory.

Well, Mike, John, and Dan will all be completely moved out for the summer on Monday. That leaves me with 3 rooms.... I think I'll use one for sleep and one as an office, but I'm not quite sure what to do with the last one. Any suggestions?

"Private First Class Patrick Miller, 23, kept asking his guards if they were going to kill him. They said they were not. 'I still didn't believe them, so I kept asking,' Miller said."

"Anger Management" is only slightly more entertaining than most of Adam Sandler's other movies, and the audience will laugh loudly at all the parts they showed in the previews as if they'd never seen them before.

Understatement of the Millennia
"Our business is notorious for being almost lunatic liberal," Woods told The New York Times in Sunday editions. "There's sort of a loony fringe that's way over the top and out of step with mainstream America."

I've been out of the country music thing for years now, but over the last few days I've accidentally fell back into it. Some of the songs responsible for this include Alan Jackson's "Drive," Keith Urban's "Raining On Sunday," Toby Keith's "The Taliban," Randy Travis' "Three Wooden Crosses," and Tim McGraw's "She's My Kind Of Rain." It's also been kinda cool to rediscover all the songs I used to like. I'd almost forgotten how good this stuff is.

Safeway Brand Sandwiches
"You also must pay close attention, because even after you repeat it, they will undoubtedly construct the sandwich to their liking. When you see them pick up that mayo you are gonna have to yell, which in turn makes them mutter their desire for you to go to hell under their breath, but ignore it. You've been sentenced to hell by other food service employees in your time, I know, I was one of them. While it may briefly make them feel better, it in no way has any bearing on whether you actually go to hell when you die. Although if you get the wrong employee it could lead to a quicker death. But enough about death and onto some more guidance when ordering sandwiches!!"

It's that time again. The time where I realize I haven't blogged in a while and decide to do something about it. Only this time I've cranked out a new template to go along with the post! Maybe — if you're providentially blessed — I'll post more often.
