New York, watch out!

As much as I'd love avoiding looking like a tourist, I'd much rather slap a backpack on Dr. J and have access to aleve, handiwipes, and a Nutrigrain bar if need be. So we are taking off on Thursday after work and returning on Tuesday. I'm so swamped trying to get caught up from the last day I was gone, and now I'll be out for two days. EEEEK!

So the awesome news is that Dr. J and I, along with our travel companions, all got tickets to the Late Show with David Letterman on Monday! And we are totally going to see The Today Show on Monday morning (7:00 a.m. EST, 11/3). Looks like my 15 minutes of fame are predictably around the corner! Hopefully I won't do anything to completely embarass myself, but then again, what good is a trip to New York if you're not gonna check your self respect at the state line!

Oh and Adam is running a marathon or something while we are there. Go Adam! I am so gonna watch that with a Soy Hazelnut Venti Latte and a giant croissant in hand.

This is a mind blowing quote

On my google homepage today ....

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.
