But I prepared for them anyway.
I am in Miami for some more recruiting. I have chosen a hotel which advertised free wifi in the room, but didn’t deliver. I have always carried an ethernet cable in my briefcase and never needed it — until tonight.
And I’ve Always Heard Stories About People Like This…
About ten minutes from landing the landing gear went down and a guy said “There goes the landing gear” loud enough for about twenty rows to hear him. Oddly his conversation turned into a profanity-laced one about the New York Yankees, guys like him, the fact that he needed a cigarette, women (putting it politely), and the fact that someone near him was the “wrong color” to be from Houston, all at a volume level loud enough for many to hear. Needless to say that the guy was drunk. As we exited the plane people ahead of me flagged down some airport security to report the guy. I didn’t stick around to find out any more.

Everywhere I go the hash seems to find me (or vice-versa).
This was found in Gainesville last week on the campus of the University of Florida.
The Internet Is A Strange Place
Last night I had a moment of brilliance and thought about registering “Where’s Paulie” as a dot com address that would link here. Much to my surprise that domain has already been taken and forwards you to a site called “Girls And Guns”. (now you know why I didn’t provide a link earlier).
CD Pick Of The Week
I missed picking a CD last week. Oops. However that’s old news as there are many things from which to choose this week.
Some of the releases which strike my radar are
Foo Fighters — “Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace”
PJ Harvey — “White Chalk”
Matt Pond, PA — “Last Light”
Iron & Wine — “Shepherd’s Dog”
The Weakerthans — “Reunion Tour”
Of these the band you’ve probably never heard of is The Weakerthans. They are a Canadian group whose music I don’t know a whole heck a lot about myself, however what I’ve heard I liked.
