I have $262.43 worth of stuff sitting in my Amazon cart. I'm waiting for $50 to $75 worth of gift certificates to arrive from cashed-in credit card reward points. I'm not good at math, but that should cover it all, right?

The summer's almost over? What? 7 days from now is my last day of work for two weeks, and 8 days from now, August Of Awesomeness #8 begins. I should make that post soon. Also, I have exactly three days with no plans (even if I don't count work as a plan) between now and August 17th: next Wednesday and Thursday, and August 11th. Though I might go on a day trip on the 11th.

Hey, there's a new minyan starting in Philly. Y'all should check it out. I hear the people planning it rock. And are also quite attractive.

myq is visiting Philly for the next week or so. I hope I have time to hang out with him a lot. Sadly, a Phillies game isn't in the cards.

Hey, a guy who drives around Ohio helping people sign up for public benefits using computers in his van has a blog. I hear the software he uses is made by people who rock. And who are also quite attractive.

Guess that's it for now. Happy Friday!
