Why are they using a song from "My Fair Lady" in a Hampton Inn commercial? Like how many people are actually going to recognize why they're saying that you'll feel absolutely "loverly"?

The price difference between a liter of water and a liter of soda is ridiculous.

OTOH San Pellegrino is well worth the price, and even better is the flavored italian mineral water from Whole Foods. Check it out!

1. Halloween Party.

2. Halloween Bar Crawl.

3. I start work on my costume tonight. I'm afraid, very afraid. But I think I can pull it off.

Hurricane? What hurricane? Despite a forcast for scatter showers and thhunderstorms, a high surf warning and small craft advisory for the southern shore of Long Island, and forecasted 20 knot winds and 5-7 foot waves (which means choppy), we went fishing today off of Montauk. Clear blue skies, barely even a swell let alone a wave, 80 degrees and all the bluefish you could ever possibly want. We kept running into them all day - even on our way back in we stopped about three times because we just happened upon blitzes that the birds weren't working (I think they were all full). If I get around to it I'll post a pic of some fish and better yet some peanut bunker that got spewed all over the deck by a blue.

No albies though :(

Also, I broke my fly rod. Thankfully it's got a lifetime warranty so I can simply take it back to Orvis and they'll give me a new one. All the same I was a little bummed because I had to use my spincasting rod from DonArt the rest of the day. Not that I don't love that rod, but catching blues on a fly rod is infinitely more fun, plus I tied a gazillion flies for this weekend (albeit most albie flies, surfcandy and whatnot; I had one olive angel hair clauser that probably would have doubled for the bunker pretty well). We threw all the blues back; I still have a freezer full of striper and fluke anyhow!

John Paul II will go next. You heard it hear first. Poor Johnny didn't have a chance after June went.
