Weekend in Review

What a weekend – canoeing in the rain! Driving in the rain! Shivering in shorts at Riverfest watching Nickel Creek! Sharing it all with Tara made it somewhat less painful. Plus we watched Almost Famous Saturday night and had brunch Sunday afternoon with the Morrisseys at Loca Luna. Monday DeLaine came over and we watched Hurlyburly which was really hard to watch so we stopped and watched the "Shoe Money Tonight" episode of Sports Night.

Nothing To See Here

This is purely for my own amusement and is not intended as any great refutation. Just a resigned "whatever" to the people that enjoy these kinds of email forwards. The best part is it pretends to have been written by Andy Rooney, who despite being a mean, clever old crank, is still a much better writer than this tripe:
