Reinforcing Stereotypes

August 26, 2007

On the plus side, if the Beauty Queen thing doesn’t work out, she can always run for president.


A good way to start out your Friday….

…is to stumble across a Replacements song while surfing radio stations on the way to work.

In their honor, here’s the best music video ever made.


Step away from the crack pipe……

The Lovely Amy Winehouse, after and before.

Apparently she has some sort of fatigue problem that has forced her to postpone the American leg of her tour.

(While searching for links to this story, I came across this gem. Yep, she has a definite case of the fatigues.)

The First Commandment

August 20, 2007

Our friend Alli went home to Cincinnati a few weeks back. I’ve been bugging her to get a picture of the Big Butter Jesus for a year or so and she finally decided to humor me.

Big Butter and Alli

Turns out, her parents new house is not to far away from the big guy himself. Somehow, she convinced her Mom to give her a ride (I can only imagine how that conversation went) out there to get the photo.

For the record, I don’t appreciate the Giant Jesus Statue. I spent a lot of time in church when I was younger and far too often it seemed, things like this have less to do with celebrating Christianity than they do with the ego of the person/congregation. “Look at how Holy we are!”

It took a couple of long days on the water but we finally found the King Salmon.


The trip was great, I’ll post more on it later.


Going Fishing

August 3, 2007

Blogging has been lite of late due to some long hours at work. And it’s not going to get any better. Tomorrow morning, at some ungodly hour, I’m heading north into Canada to do some fishing, so things will be quiet around here until I get back. Hopefully I’ll have some great fish tales to tell.

It’s a trip I’ve done every year since moving out here and it’s always a great week. It’s like being inside an episode of Planet Earth.

Even better, Mike and I stopped at Bottleworks in Wallingford and bought a great selection of beers to take with us (click to Enlarge).
