Oh, a 2nd one.

Well, I did it again...I bought another full album online.  Amazon got my money once again due to the album being about $3 less (and the DRM-free is still very appealing) than trusty old iTunes.  Anyways, I'm not ashamed to mention which album I grabbed this time.  It's from Estelle, who is from the UK, and on John Legend's label here in the US.  I discovered her via one of the few channels I watch on TV, VH1 Soul.   Anyways, it's a nice R&B, slight Pop-py album...check it out if you are so inclined.

Can I sneak in the suitcase?

So, I visited with my Nana & Granddad yesterday at their hotel in Dulles.  They were staying overnight there on the way back to the motherland (Amsterdam).  Needless to say, I loved seeing them both, and it was cool that they wanted my friend Dan to have dinner with us as well.  We had a great time, and Dan commented on how much he liked hearing about their various excursions around the world.  Heck, I thought it was cool that we all had a pint of Sam Adams beer as our dinner beverage of choice (especially with alcohol being such a rarity with most of my family).  

They actually flew out a few hours here's to a safe trip to and from...and seeing them both again sometime this summer (this time back in Covington, VA).

Oh, and my Granddad made a kick ass night stand for me.  He's cool like that. ;)

I shaved my goatee off!  But still rocking a little soul patch action.

Another "Finally Did It" Post

Well, after about 5 years of buying individual music tracks online, I finally broke down and bought a full album.  Oh, and the most surprising aspect of this historic transaction?  It wasn't from the iTunes store!  Amazon had a better deal and I wanted it to be DRM free.  Although I do kind of miss looking at the liner notes of the cd (unlike Apple, Amazon doesn't give you that digitally, or at all).

Well...the hunt is on

The New Orleans Saints have announced their schedule and surprised me in the process.  I already knew they were coming into Washington sometime this season...but actually figured it was going to be more mid-season timeframe.  Lo and behold though, it's a week 2 game!

So yeah, 9/14/08 it is...and judging on the ticket exchange thing on the Redskins site, it's not going to be cheap.

Apple failed me...

Well, finally had to deal with Apple tech support after all of the hardware I've bought from them.  The funny thing is, it's actually on my newest piece of Apple goodness Time Capsule.  That little guy has been getting a bit wonky the last week or so (after having it for a month or so).  It all worked out though, because after a 20 minute phone call with some very nice people, I'm being overnighted a replacement free of charge.

Stupid spam bots...and Scrubs!

Sorry that I have to inconvenience you all; but I finally had to do something to stop the spam bots.  So when you leave a comment now, you'll have to perform an extra step before your comment will be posted.

Oh, and today's a good day...because new episodes of Scrubs start tonight!

John Adams

So getting HBO for free for a few months has it's advantages, especially when it comes to the On Demand service.  I've been catching up on the "John Adams" mini series via the aforementioned service and I must say, bravo!  I've always been into US History, the revolutionary era in particular, and this does not disappoint.  Plus it doesn't hurt they filmed some of it in Williamsburg.

So if you have the means, I highly suggest you give it a try.   Or if not, wait for the inevitable DVD release.

Went out to eat last night.

So, 2 friends of mine were having their birthday celebrations this weekend, and we ate out last night.  Some swanky Japanese Hibachi place...and I paid $18 for a plate of yakisoba!  Yes, it was good...just not $18 good.

But going out afterwords wearing a fake mustache...that's priceless.  Hopefully a picture can be posted soon, once said friends upload them from their cameras.

Blossoms In Bloom

I took advantage of the the nice day, and the fact the cherry blossoms are in bloom to snap this shot:
