For the record, I love appliances that are dressed in white. Further, if the appliance, dressed in white, can do the things that a woman can do, then I'LL TAKE IT!

Ahhh, I love it when irony kills.

Although true that the Formula One guy should be eradicated from humankind, he did describe the perfect woman for JB!
Wow. The Formula One boss needs to be fired. That's pretty much all there is.

Ex-Klansman found guilty of manslaughter in �64 slayings - Crime & Punishment -

You can ignore the entire story except for the last paragraph on page 2. This is possibly the most ignorant statement I've ever seen.

John and I have now successfully been on The Diet for a week.

For the record, I've gained a pound and a half.

Things I have learned interning with the Navy:
1. Melingering - intentionally and willfully faking a mental illness for whatever reason

2. Consentual Sodomy - By unwed persons, penetration of the female sexual organ with another's tongue, finger, or any other body part or article used for penetration except the male sexual organ, insertion of the male sexual organ into another's mouth, penetration of the anus with tongue, finger, male sexual organ, or any other body part or article used for penetration with full and knowlegeable consent of all parties involved.

Both of these are crimes in the military. Interesting.....

As the resident Thinking Minority member in Florida, you all (you and John or you and Margaret) were supposed to call me so I could meet you all in Orlando - you have upset the Florida contingent of the Thinking Minority. In any event, it is Hurricane Season (the caps are deserved) and you should expect rain anytime, not to mention at 3pm every day. I hope you all enjoyed your conference. Since this is the closest you all would ever come to visiting me in Jacksonville, I am glad you all had a good time visiting me. Enjoy the rain!

One more thing: Has anyone else seen this commercial, where the jingle (repeated several times during the 15 seconds) is "You bet your sweet Aspercream"? All wrong.
Pretty typical. We finally take a trip to Florida and a tropical storm shows up. Last year the first named storm didn't happen until August 1.

So John and I are having the Great Debate - do we try to do Disney today, tomorrow, or save our free tickets for another time? They're good through the end of 2006. On the one hand, we could save the tickets for a day when we can spend the entire day, and it's not raining. On the other hand, so what if we don't get a whole day and it rains while we're there? The tickets were free. We welcome any input from the Thinking Minorities.

At least we got to do Universal Studios. The park was closed and only conference members and their guests could enter. All of the food and drinks were free, and the lines were pretty short (I'd say about 15 minutes on average - as opposed to HOURS) - basically, it was how a theme park SHOULD be.

Woohoo! I'm in Orlando! Flight was fine (on time, even), although - despite there being a lot of entirely empty rows on the plane, my (window) seat was next to two other people. An elderly couple, and the husband wanted to talk. Nice guy and all, but while the pilot was talking I got very engrossed in my book. I swear, his wife was rolling her eyes at him...

No mishaps to report - landed at 11:37PM (11 minutes early). They didn't lose my luggage; in fact, my suitcase was the third one to come out on the belt.

John picked me up in a very nice convertible and by the time we got back to the hotel my hair was a bees' nest. We went to bed and got up about 5 hours later to do a timeshare presentation. Fun! Actually, surprisingly enough, they were really low pressure - we got to the end, said no, and they let us leave. If we ever do buy a timeshare, it'll probably be here. AND, to top it off, we got free Disney tickets. Excellent.

That's all I have to report so far. John has been negligent with his Orlando blogging, so I'll try to make up for it. Oh, one more thing -

Orlando is HOT. And muggy. Walking feels like swimming. Or something.

I'm sitting in the hotel watching the Arnold TV-movie. Maybe Californians just got swept up in the moment? Who knows?

Charlottesville is hot - I'm sure not quite as hot, but hot. It's also not nearly as fun. Hard choice, but I think I'd pick Orlando today. Especially if I could leave the kids in Charlottesville. That sounds really weird - "kids". OK I'm rambling. Maybe I should try to sleep. Wait I've got 2 children at home, sleep what's that.

Enjoy Orlando for me.

Congrats Margaret. What a way to show up the others in your first few weeks of work. Keep at it and you might even reach halfway through S.
