Ittttttsssssss Friday?

The word of the day is "smetana"

Slashdot sig of the day is:

"Some people are like Slinkies
They bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs."
From ozmanjursi

Seriously, this is a good article. What an example of the U.S. trying to push the world around - like Bush even knows what a TLD is or a DNS server.

Good Times

Off the topic of travelling - Gina and I went with Patrick to see Hellbent tonight. Wow, I can honestly say it is the best gay slasher movie I have ever seen. Sadly, it is also the only one.

This was far too funny, my side hurts. All of us agreed it was nearly the worst movie ever, with one, small but significant exception - a single short quote that should turn up on bumper stickers and T-shirts everywhere:

"Condoms suck. But they keep you safe."

Sage like advice from a man about to get his head cut off.

First Post!

The word of the day is "smetana"

OK - this is the first of a few posts to this "blog" thing on Blogger.com, which I selected because:
1) it is free
2) I don't have time to get my web site set up for similar functionality
3) I just want somewhere to add a few pictures and some text for my trips

So, here's where to look for stuff related to my (and Gina's) various travels. I have every intention of moving this content to my web site (which has been completely neglected) at some point in the future. For now, this is where its at. What will be here is pictures and comments on the various travels of me (Ben) and my super hero (Gina).

What's coming up:
1) Ben goes to India - 8 October to 25 October with a day in Amsterdam each way!
2) Gina's mom comes to Minneapolis - 28 October to 13 November
3) Ben goes to San Antonio, TX - 14 November to 16 November

This is just getting started! There are another half dozen trips before the end of the year.

So, stay tuned for more random ramblings and crazy stuff!
