A joke

A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on the highway. Nothing is moving. Suddenly a man knocks on the window. The driver rolls down his window and asks, "What happened??

"Terrorists kidnapped President Bush and are asking for a $10 million ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse him with gasoline and set him on fire. We are going from car to car to take up a collection."

The driver asks, "How much is everyone giving on average?"

"About a gallon."

Exciting is hardly the word I would use

I just learned that a new Marah album will be released October 18. On October 23, I'll see them at T.T. The Bear's Place in Cambridge. This makes me happy.

Happy anniversary

One year ago, I purchased my iPod, and one year later, the love affair continues. Sure, it's not as pretty as it once was; it's dirty and scratched and its silver back does not glow like it did the day I purchased it. But it doesn't matter to me. It is undoubtedly my most prized material possession--one that I cannot live without.

Better iPods have been released in the past year, and they will continue to improve, but my feelings about my iPod will not waver any time soon; I plan to own it for at least four more years.
