Very Cool Pic

Michael Dowbrigade Feldman: "Spotted leaving work this afternoon, crossing the BU Bridge on Memorial Drive along the Charles River in Cambridge, an extended family of geese."

Aww, this is so cute! But also nerve wracking! Can't they get a crossing guard for the geese? Yicks!

I remember when I was around five, my family was on a road trip through the Arizona desert (I think we were going to Las Vegas--I needed to start picking up poker tips) and we, along with a handful of other cars, were stopped on some small road in the middle of the desert (really out in the "middle of the middle" of the desert) to wait for a bunch (as in a lot!) of tarantulas to cross the road! Seriously! It seemed like we waited forever, but then again, I was around five, and three minutes can feel like three hours at that age! At any rate, I would still count that as an incredibly surreal moment in my life.

Well, that, and about half an hour prior to the tarantula crossing when we hung out with a bunch of locals at the General Store taking peyote. That was pretty surreal, too.

Yes! I kid about the peyote, but the tarantala crossing was real.

I think. Or, maybe it was the other way around... :-)

Nice story.

That's the kind of story that would be perfect for a blog, if the writer had one.

Yeah, but if she had a blog she'd be required to try to recruit other blogs into the family. See, bloggers are geeks who can't find anyone of the opposite sex to marry them and reproduce, so they can only get new members by recruiting. So as soon as you get your own blog, all the other bloggers force you to try to recruit others.

Of course this is the old slam against homos -- that we had to recruit, but now that we can marry that doesn't hold water. Luckily, the sanctity of marriage is being protected by the fact that bloggers aren't allowed to marry.

Hey Jack: I know! But I've always been a procrastinator. I'll start my homework, I promise. This is just like college, I'll stay up all night and cram before my blog is due. When is it due? Sherman, did you take notes? Can I copy from you? :-)

Hey Sherman: Are you saying that this blogging thing is like a pyramid scam? Is everyone I know going to view me as one of those "sort of" friends that come around out of the blue saying "Hey, let's have lunch Saturday." Wasting a perfectly good weekend day, just to find out that they admire you so much that they want to offer you the opportunity to get involved in their new business selling for a marketing pyramid version of Amway. Oh, geesh.
