A bit of random ridiculousness...

I was reading my Bloglines this morning and Philly Transplant had a picture of Olympian Ryan Lochte. My sleepy brain realized something, do you see it?

Ryan Lochte looks like Alexander the Great!

A fun flick.

We weren't going to go see "Swing Vote" because we're already in political overload, but it was the next to start so we said why not. It was actually pretty good - I cried and laughed, not a bad arc for a flick. Yes, it's politics as usual but twisted into such a way, we found ourselves laughing out loud. The music is pretty good too. The end could of been so sappy and yet it gives a pretty good message...think for yourself.

Right now I'm giving my eyes a well deserved rest and it's all about volleyball. Beach and indoor Volleyball. A little bit of home :-)

UPDATE: It's beach volleyball, the women wear bikinis and the men wear trunks, except for her China where the men wear tank tops. WHAT is that all about!?!

Sad news.

The great Russian author, recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature, gulag survivor, exile and eventual returnee Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn has passed away.

If you've never had a chance to read 'One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich' or haven't done so in years, then this would be a good time to pick a copy up.

I've already pulled my copy off the shelf and will be rereading it, most likely learning something new about myself, the author and the world while doing it.
