standpoint

I’d love to say I had something amazingly clever and witty to write today, but I didn’t. And it wouldn’t have mattered since the ride from Skippack to Conshohocken last night took about an hour and a half. Plus, after lauding FiOS just yesterday, we awoke yesterday morning to find our router had lasted less than 24 hours. Guess it wasn’t ready for two people who spend as much time on the internet as we do.

But, hopefully, I’ll be back tomorrow with some more. Thanks for reading.

quotation

Aside from velcro, time is the most mysterious substance in the universe. You can’t see it or touch it, yet a plumber can charge you upwards of seventy-five dollars per hour for it, without necessarily fixing anything.Dave Barry

tune

Admittedly, I know next to nothing about Florida’s indie rock group, Surfer Blood. But I like what I hear of them so far. Someone wrote they sound like Weezer before they sucked. Or something like that. Try “Swim.”
