Also on BNL, in typical legal manuevering, Steven Page's court appearance has been delayed to October 14.
This not being a good year for my favorite band. First, Steve Page was busted for cocaine possession. Now Ed walks away from a very dangerous sounding plane crash. Be careful guys! I need a new album!
Jonathan Coulton is an absolute favorite of mine for his geeky, funny, and sometimes incredibly touching songs. Mash him up with one of the sparkling performers from the Adventurer's Club at Disney, and you get a total tear-jerker of a funny, romantic, nerdy song.

When we made our way up to deck for breakfast and … Continue reading Alaska Cruise, Day Eight – Whittier and Anchorage

Early on, the wind was whipping down the deck into our faces and low clouds covered everything around us, lending a mysterious, ominous feel to the trip, as if we could suddenly sail off the side of the Earth, as … Continue reading Alaska Cruise, Day Seven – College Fjord
We started the second half of our day in Sitka with lunch at Victoria's, a local restaurant near the church that was recommended by our tour guide. (Always, always, ask a local where the best place to eat is. It's an eternal rule of travel.)
