God Save the Queen

My parents, bless them, are on the Queen Mary 2 right now. They boarded the ship on Saturday and right now they're somewhere in the Caribbean. I hope they have a wonderful time because they deserve it.

Today is Monday, February 7, 2005. The weather in New York over the weekend was beautiful. Our Saturday night was mellow as expected. We read The New York Times and watched Saturday Night Live. I was itching to get out of the house on Sunday morning, and since Jenn was feeling better she agreed to take a walk around the neighborhood with me. We walked around Williamsburg from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., stopping to soak in the sunshine a couple of times.

First, we walked through McCarren Park. The city is in the process of replacing the running track and soccer field. Then we walked along Bedford Avenue, stopping in the Girdle Factory and eventually going to the bagel shop by Metropolitan. It was a good healthy walk, very similar in rigor and duration to J. Michael Fay's Megatransect, except with bagels and a chocolate croissant.

Of course the American cultural event of great importance last night was Superbowl 39, or XXXIX for those of you who dig Roman numerals. My friend Webster dropped by the house to watch it with us. He brought along a router, to help link up Jenn and my computers. It was very nice of him.

The New England Patriots defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, and I cared only a little bit. Paul McCartney was a good halftime performer, far superior to last year's debacle, irrespective of the incident.

Yeah, after that nearly 2-hour tour through Williamsburg, I think we're just about ready to plunge into the heart of the African jungle with Mr. Fay. Or maybe we could just stow away on the QM2 with your parents.
