Washington, DC Trip

Lesa and I are planning a trip from Nashville to DC next week - 2 days to get there and back and 2 days in DC itself playing tourist. We plan on staying in Johnson City, TN the first night and Blacksburg, VA on the way back. It will be our first "long distance" ride on our new bike!

We know all the places in DC we want to see (Washington Monument, White House, National Archives, etc) and plan on taking "back roads" as much as possible on the trip.

The nice folks at Garmin have loaned us a StreetPilot 2720 (thanks to the guys at Honda of Cool Springs for mounting it for us!) so we can find our way around without too many issues (I've been testing it around Nashville and it *rocks*) and the Butt Buffer people have got our....well...butts covered. :)

Are there any sights/places/restaurants/roads you think are can't miss? Any ideas, no matter how odd or wacky, are appreciated.

Also, we've got a Royal Star Tour Deluxe with nice big saddlebags. But I'll be picking up a "Touring Bag" for the passenger seat so we can put in clothes and such. The bike has been checked out and is ready for the ride.

What else do you suggest we bring along? We've got the usual (extra cel phone batteries, emergency numbers, cameras and a computer to upload pics :) ) but do you have any other suggestions? I'm going to grab a couple of extra face shields and we'll bring enough and the right clothes but.....

Speaking of Brazilian Wax Jobs

Look at their faces - it doesn't seem *that* bad.....

Speaking of Brazilian Wax Jobs


Our 1st Married Valentine's Day!

So....I come home this afternoon and my Blushing Bride is working at her computer and listening to Howard Stern. One of the guys on the show is getting a Brazilian Wax Job - not exactly what you want to hear as you come home on Valentine's Day!

It got better though.

I brought home 2 gifts - one pair of silk pajamas and the 2nd gift she hasn't found yet. :) And I had Peruvian Lilies delivered.

She had a huge, heavy box on the coffee table waiting for me.....check the video below to see what was in it. :)

Take this Test!

It says Shawn is:
"messy, tough, disorganized, fearless, not rule conscious, likes the unknown, rarely worries, rash, attracted to the counter culture, rarely irritated, positive, resilient, abstract, not a perfectionist, risk taker, strange, weird, self reliant, leisurely, dangerous, anti-authority, trusting, optimistic, positive, thrill seeker, likes bizarre things, sarcastic."

Stability results were high which suggests you are very relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic..

Orderliness results were moderately low which suggests you are, at times, overly flexible, improvised, and fun seeking at the expense of reliability, work ethic, and long term accomplishment.

Extraversion results were medium which suggests you are moderately talkative, outgoing, sociable and interacting.

Very interesting.....

Yes, it was a 'Real' Wedding

In case you hadn't heard, Shawn King and Lesa Snider, of Your Mac Life and The Graphic Reporter, were married during Macworld Conference and Expo, on 12 January, 2006.

It wasn't some kind of goofball thing on the show floor, it wasn't officiated by a Steve Jobs lookalike, the vows weren't exchanged via iChat AV, it wasn't webcast. It was a wedding, for all the reasons people get married, and it was beautiful. But yes, when you hear about something like this, the trainwreck potential on the surface is SO high...
