What I did on Vacation (Well, one day of it at least)

Daniel and I decided that since we were going to be in Boston for the last Red Sox regular season game, we had to get tickets. Ticket prices were outrageous, but I scored Pavilion Box tickets, for a "reasonable" (read not $500+a ticket) price. The views were amazing, even if we were both a little cold, and we saw everything on the field.

Pretty good shot Daniel took

Just a whole lot of nothing

Or not. One of my favorite online reading places is Slate Magazine. I enjoy reading in particular the Explainer, which recently featured this story on Iraq Tempatures:
His point was it really isn't 130 degrees there. Naturally, this led to much commenting on how, while it may NOT be that hot, it sure as hell feels like it.
This week, a compilation by one of the authors (Here) states this " We're in sorry shape, indeed, if our troops are depending upon a lie of six degrees. It's sad to see so many troops (plus their friends and family) opposed to a mere statement of truth"
If you read most of the comments, we aren't objecting to a "mere statement of truth" We just want our side of the issue, and how we feel heard on it as well. It may not be that hot in reality, but don't dismiss the heat.

Always kinds weird to see ones own car in the rear view mirror

My sister was driving my car while I was driving the truck, we were on our way to the airport to pick up Hubby:)

I am somewhat perturbed, as I am sure many other people are out there after Apple's announcements yesterday. I recently purchased a lovely 80GB video Ipod for about $325 (I got it on a really great sale after much research). Now what happens: They cut the price by $100!!! I could have had my 80GB with twice as much power for less:( wah, what am I going to do? Nothing to be done but enjoy the one I have:)
In other gadget news, still want an Iphone, but still not going to pay $400 plus the $200 disconnect fee from Tmobile I would have to pay if I wanted one:-D
All is well here, DH comes home soon, then it's off to Boston in the fall;)
