List postponed

Who knew packing up your life and getting a condo ready for renters would take so much time? So i only made it through a few items on my list. Since we'll be moving to southern VA instead of say, Europe... it'll be easier to check them off sooner or later. So we'll focus on my ridiculous summer of travel.

If you're driving up 95 through Connecticut - I feel for you - stop at Papa's Pizza in Milford, CT (exit 35). Its just as far off the freeway as McDonalds but you won't be eating mystery meat or supporting the uber corporate world. His pizza is nice and thin, with fresh ingredients and really good sauce.

Alberta Cross at Rock & Roll Hotel

"Oh, they were millions, as we were just one
It's just a heart for mine, having his own fun
Leave us a friend, he's living life, he's lonely
Leave us a friend, he's just living life before me, now."

- Old Man Chicago by Alberta Cross.

Hauntingly soulful rockers.

DC United Game!

Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Ceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee United!

Olay, Olay Olay Olay. Olay, Olay.

400 of my closest friends and I joined together on Wednesday to cheer on our MLS team. The poor attendance was a disappointment but the brava brava guys were pretty rockin.

Also soccer players are yummy when they change their shirts.
