Day: June 16, 2009


I may get another link or two posted before we officially depart, but this is your friendly reminder that Mrs. B.¬†and I will soon be departing for a few days south of the border. We’re heading to Cabo San Lucas, where some friends and quite a few beers are waiting for us. It’s going to be a fairly quick trip; we get in mid-afternoon on Thursday and will fly home Sunday. I’m sure that’s enough time to get a sunburn I will regret and probably a hangover or two. Hopefully that’s all I bring back from Mexico. The first time I traveled there, I brought back some kind of intestinal souvenir that made life uncomfortable for about two months. And hopefully our old pal H1N1 will stay under control a few more weeks.

Watch this space for a complete recap of our adventures next week. Some of our friends who are already down there have been known to do crazy things when under the influence, so I may have a story or two.

Hasta pronto.


Gearing Up For Superhero Season

I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve received an e-mail from someone who happens upon the blog that goes along the lines of this:

Dearest Blogger,

I recently found your wonderful weblog and have enjoyed it immensely. I especially enjoyed your recent post about potty training your daughter / watching a sporting event on your couch / the old lady who annoyed you at the grocery store. I was so moved by your work that I would like to reimburse you for the enjoyment you provided me. Please let me know what I can buy you to return some of that pleasure back to you.


A Loyal Reader

I always respond with a nice note thanking them for the comments and pointing out that I blog for fun, not reward. However, these people are often persistent, and eventually I tell them just to buy me something from the Apple Store* and we’ll be even.

I may need to change my ways, though.

This looks someplace where I could use some gear from: <a href=””>Superhero Supplies</a>.
