two thousand one is done

What better way to end the year then with a picture of me that happens to be slapped with a big old "2001"...
Mo thinks this is about the scariest picture of me ever and keeps trying to destroy it. It's Peterman and me on "Superman: The Ride of Steel" at Six Flags New England on September 9th. (A multimedia view of another ride on the same day can be found in this journal entry.) The moose antlers were a perennial favorite of my dad.

A man gazing at the stars is proverbially at the mercy of the puddles in the road.

Link of the Moment
Thanks to the power of the Internet, it's The Naked News. Newscasters take off their clothes as they read odd little news snippets. I find it strangely sexy, more so than a traditional strip tease, probably because it makes nakedness seem normal. (The same way I'm more easily distracted by jeans and a tanktop than by lingerie...)
