Any idiot can drive fast in a straight line

Eric and I had planned on playing street hockey with the same bunch of people we played with a couple weeks ago. Some of them were still learning to skate; none of them had played street hockey for more than a couple months. Needless to say, the games were fun and low on competition. Today, none of them could make it. Knowing that lots of people play at Elbel field, we headed down there. About 8 guys were playing and there was an 9 year old boy trying to keep up with them. Seeing such a group, we knew they couldn't have been too good. Turns out, they were all better than the two of us, but we held our own.

After an hour and a half of playing, a few more guys showed up. Slowly as these people started to sub in, Eric and I noticed how outclassed we were. I thought they were just good amateurs with a cocky attitude. When we finally left, Eric told me he found out that they were on the UMich hockey team! Man. No wonder.

After the heat of the past few days, this evening breeze is amazing. I think a cool breeze is one of the most relaxing feelings possible. It is so relaxing that I feel more at peace.

So the man leans over to me and whispers:
"Neutral Milk Hotel
The Microphones
The Shins
The Dismemberment Plan
Need New Body
The Mountain Goats
Boards of Canada
... and You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Belle & Sebastian
The Hot Snakes
The White Stripes".
And so it shall be done.

Got NS 4.7 and DNS working on my Sun box. Wow, the site looks like poop. That's okay though, since I might be redesigning in the next couple weeks. I know who we can thank for that.

My page is now HTML 4.01 Transitional and CSS compliant. Does anyone still use Netscape 4.7? I made some other changes to the layout, so it is very possible that the site is broken in NS 4.7. The only machine I have that has NS 4.7 is my Sun box, but I can't seem to get DNS lookups to work properly...

I only watched one show this year (other than SportsCenter, but all males watch that so it doesn't count), 24. How, in the name of baby Jesus, did it rank below The Chair and just above Spin City? Good thing there is going to be a second season. If it got deleted like so many other shows this year, I would cry.

Simpsons fan rejoice: Albuquerque's baseball team next year will be the Isotopes.
