So, you want to know...

. . . a little bit more about Ann Arbor, MI?

Here are a few things I didn't know (according to wikipedia, at least).

---"The original Borders Books was opened on Ann Arbor's State Street in 1971 by brothers Tom and Louis Borders, and began operating other outlets around the region beginning in 1985. The Borders chain is still based in the city, as is its flagship store (although not in its original location). A little-known fact is that dogs are allowed inside the flagship store, and the cashiers have a stock of doggy treats for canine visitors. "

---"Domino's Pizza's headquarters are in Ann Arbor on Domino's Farms, a massive 271-acre, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired complex in the northeastern portion of the city."

--- " Ave Maria School of Law, a Catholic institution established by Domino's Pizza cofounder Tom Monaghan, opened in northeastern Ann Arbor in 2000, although a new campus is under construction near Naples, Florida due to the school's conflicts with local zoning authorities."



My parents told me about this a few nights ago. Ohhhh Utah!

"Pournography" for you....

Although the "pournography" has the funniest name, all the other categories are cool, too.

Time for bed.

It's one thing to be benched . . .

. . . because you didn't follow the high school league rules about wearing shoes during the game. However, you'd think that you might think again if the player HAD NO LEGS. Not in Ohio.

It would be pretty embarassing . . .

. . . to get caught cheating like this.

Update on the Killer Dolphins!

Here's a U.S. Navy webpage giving significant credibility for the existence of the animals discussed in the link contained in my last post. The Navy uses Sea Lions, Killer Whales, Porpoises, Sharks, and Birds for various purposes too! I don't see anything immediately about the darts, but I'm certainly less skeptical now.

On the other hand, I am still unable to give an update on whether I am more terrified than I am euphoric.

Here's a teaser for the webpage . . .

By Far the Winner in the Insanity Contest

If these animals turn out to exist, I'm not sure whether I would be terrified or euphoric.

Pailon y Dailon

For a long long time, Pilon and I have said how it would be cool if she posted things to this blog. She hasn't made any post... so, I have updated my profile to include both of us and have decided not to post anything until Pilar writes something. She spent the past few days in Cuenca, Spain in the parties of that city. Unlike me, she doesn't have to go to classes yet. So, finally, we can expect a post from her. Good night!


. . . some people in Budapest are weird too.

Rehnquist and Old School

I saw this earlier on Penn's student newspaper, but had forgotten about it until VC reminded me of it.

More Pictures

I finally got my financial aid package today so I was able to get a replacement cable for my camera. The following are a small sample of the hundreds of photos I have taken in the past month. The photos are in reverse chronology, beginning with the Michigan // N. Illinois game, going back to Fuengirola with Pilar, and finally, some pictures of being in El Escorial with Pilon. Enjoy.
