swine flu?

gimme a break. i'm not big on the conspiracy-theory thing, but this is getting ridiculous. here's a psa from the last time americans had a minor outbreak of the following symptoms:
- fever
- headache
- uncontrollable oinking
- eating from a trough
- mud bathing



i especially love the part where dottie gives it to the mailman before she dies. i guess she always had a thing for him.

grammy sends the dog

we left jj's pink puppydog in grammy's car when we all piled out at the lauderdale airport. of course, grammy got that little guy into an envelope right away.

up here in bedford, jaden waited patiently.

I am so happy I didn't add a four-hundred-and-twenty-first friend to Facebook before realizing I had exactly 420 of them.

april 1st



no shit, another month without a post. the dilemma grows. facebook? blog? twitter? vimeo? picasa? where do i post? web 2.0 is making it easier and easier to have all kinds of fun places to report on the goings-on of life, so choosing becomes harder and harder when the urge arrives.

i'll figure it out one way or another.

march was full of fun stuff: my first fantasy baseball experience happened with a draft at our house with jackson and a bunch of his friends, we installed a bunch of technology into yankee stadium, the toothbrush sanitizer is hitting the world of viral marketing thanks to a new web wiz i hired last week, had crazy fun and hard work in chicago for my annual visit (love that town), and got myself out on the dance floor in a pair of old fashioned roller skates for the first time in 20 something years.

if anyone's reading this, check me out on twitter at http://twitter.com/jonopinsky. not sure what i am doing there yet, but i will find out real soon.
