Photo-A-Day #439 06/21/06

Today I drove home from Syracuse. To prevent falling asleep on the ride I stopped at many rest areas. I made sure to hydrate at each one or every other one. It was good to get out and move around every 30 to 50 miles or so. While I was in one of the rest stops I saw this sculpture. Beginning to feel like a tourist myself all over the country visiting rest stops I decided to take this picture.

When I got home I picked up a new supply of Bumble Bars for Allison and I on our trip to PA this weekend. I also ran to WildTime Comics to pick up my subscription. I got The Transformers Art of War #2 and G.I. Joe #12, and G.I. Joe Declassified #1. I also got Astonishing X-Men #15. I am missing #9 in that series and have yet to read a single book. I want to be able to read the whole story all the way through.

I was able to see Last Comic Standing because Allison taped it for me. I like Gabriel’s strategy, very fair and yet very smart, don’t make enemies this early in the game. Also he is a great talent and will be tough to beat in the competition. I’m glad that Stella didn’t make it to the next round but can’t believe that Michelle was funny enough to beat April.

And we watched Rescue Me. That show still manages to make me laugh, be shocked, disgusted and interested all at the same time.

I am now almost halfway through Eldest on CD. I’ve done 9 of the 20 CD’s. The author, Christopher Paolini is so amazing, the characters, the story, the epic scale of the adventure, it is so much fun to listen to and he is only 23, such talent at such a young age. How he can think of the detail and the subplots and the distinct characters, is just incredible to me. There is still no trailer for Eragon the movie yet, and I just learned that it was supposed to have been with Superman Returns but it is not. However I did hear that the Transformers teaser trailer would begin being shown on July 7th with the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
