Party Time!

I just got back from drjekyll's bachelor party. A good time was had by all! We even lit his hand on fire as part of a drink experience called "Statue of Liberty." It didn't hurt him too much. I wrote a note in the matchbook commemorating the experience so that he can keep it forever and ever to jog his memory that a fun time was had by all tonight.

Eric Robert Rudolph: Captured

Well, it finally happened. It appears as though Olympic bombing suspect, Eric Rudolph, has been captured. I'm glad that he's been caught and if he did the things that he's been accused of, I hope he is convicted and punished. However, it was pretty cool, in an odd way, that there was this guy hiding out in the mountains who was able to avoid capture for five years. I really never thought he would have been caught.

Rockin' On The Greenway

I took some time out of my Sunday School preparation today to head out for a little geocaching fun. Recently, I noticed that a travel bug that I had on my watch list, the Geocaching Poem Travel Bug, appeared in a local cache, Rockin' On The Greenway (GCDC73). I've been hoping to run across this bug for a while. I saw mention of it in a cache I visited several months ago and thought that it was a really cool idea. What they've done is take one of those metal containers that AOL discs are sometimes shipped in and turned it into a magnetic poetry kit, with words that are geocaching theme related. It's a really neat idea for a travel bug and I'll probably make one myself (I've already saved some AOL cases) if I ever get a set of travel bug tags for myself.

On an unrelated note, I'm really enjoying "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge," which I had originally turned on as background noise while poking about on the computer. I think it's probably got about a half-hour left, so I'm going to go over to the couch and enjoy the rest of the movie. This marks a couple of sappy movies that I've allowed myself to be sucked into lately. Oh, well. Call me a sap. And why did I originally decide to watch this movie? Because Brent Spiner was in it. I love Spiner in everything I've seen him in and am glad to see that he's not simply content to exist in the role of Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
