Bogue Banks Baby!

Back from Emerald Isle, NC in the beautiful Bogue Banks. I caught 1 fish, a whopping 6 incher! I didn't do nearly as much fishing as I planned, mainly because there were small craft warnings the first couple days so that meant no headboat/charter. Oh well. Besides being in the middle of the most violent and longest lasting thunderstorm (4 hrs) The weather was nice. My last day on the beach was the epitome of a Emerald Isle beach day, crystal clear not so hot that the ocean breeze cools you off, and crystal clear calm blue-green waters. I'm relaxed, tan, and even the dark circles under my eyes kinda disappeared. I found an almost completely intact whelk shell, which looks and is the same size as a conch! Had some great food, and enjoyed relaxing times with the family. I even got Ma and Pop to do a SoCO and Lime shot!!!!!!

Well back to work, and there's about to be a shake up in that arena.

Madden 08 is here!!! Which mean NFL Regular season is sooooo close, and fantasy football drafts even closer!!!!

What is it about accents?
Hate being sick in the summer.
T -6 days and counting for a mini vacay! Apparently I need it because this illness is stress induced or so my boss told me. Partially true, I just haven't been getting to bed at a decent hour, is all. All DCers should check out Screen on the Green, every Monday night between 7th and 4th on The Mall. Last Monday
Wait Until Dark played and it was great, both the movie and atmosphere. I would love to get to Casablanca on the 13th, but something tells me after a 6.5 hour ride home from the beach will leave me drained.

New (to me) Albums I have but have not listened to yet:

1. Finding Forever ~Common

2. Era Vulgaris ~Queens of the Stone Age


1. Stronger ~Kanye West
2. Laugh/Love/Fuck ~The Coup
3. Caution ~Bob Marley
4. Jailhouse ~Sublime
5. Quality Control ~Jurassic 5

My favorite Yiddish saying:
Er zol vaksen vi a tsibeleh, mit dem kop in drerd!
- He should grow like an onion, with his head in the ground!
