On a similar note
Why is it that every Dodge Intrepid I see on the freeway is being driven by a timid person who is afraid to change lanes or merge?

On the way to work this morning, I heard a radio commercial for the Hyundai Accent. It occurs to me that "Accent" is a really fantastic name for a sub-compact car. It suggests all sorts of marketing campaigns. "Too small for a whole letter, this car is just an Accent!" Or maybe "the car so tiny that it can be considered a fashion accessory... Accent".

Keeping up with the Blogses
Dave, mad with his own blogging power, has started threatening to remove people from his blogroll if they don't blog frequently. Maybe he'll think twice about encouraging me now that I've lamely used "blog" three times in a single sentence.

His blog, of course, is full of wildly exaggerated assertions about me spending all of my time playing Neverwinter Nights. This is totally unfounded. I must respond by drinking a Potion of Bull's Strength and bashing Dave smartly across the head with my Longsword of... oh God... I need help. The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?

For those of you who were following along with the travelogue, we did eventually make it home. Sadly, we didn't get our first class upgrades for the 10-11 hour trip home. Happily, this was a Virgin flight, so we did at least have access to an on-demand movie system. 44 movies and a bunch of TV programs and games, with total play/pause/rewind/fast forward control. Almost enough to make up for losing the masseuse. Almost.
