Antediluvian media!

Rob @ 1:49 PM

One last thing before I go. My dear old mother, while doing some of her geneaological researchiculating, came across this link to a Brooklyn newspaper from 1898.

It's a fun read if you stick with it, the wrting style as well as the look at what was newsworthy in the past are well worth it.

Heading out to TImes Square soon.

Happy New Year to all of you and yours!

Braaaaaains!!!

Rob @ 8:17 PM

I had to leave work after only a few hours, because my eye was bugging me. I went to the doctor, and discovered I've got pinkeye. Craptastic.

I'll be home from work tomorrow.. the upside being I've got a lot of updating to to on my various sites. Please feel free to say hi to me on AIM (or call me if you've got the number) any time tonight, or after 10AM or so tomorrow. I'm not too proud to admit when I could use cheering up.
