I've uploaded pictures here.

Jury Duty

Today, I had the joy of being called for my first Jury Duty. Obviously I can't share any details, but it's actually not that bad. Unfortunately, it looks like I'll be there for another day or two though.

The day the TV died

Yesterday the lamp (bulb) died on my TV. It lasted about 6.5 years so I'm not complaining too much, but I had to order a new one on the internet. Apparently there aren't any stores locally that carry the replacements.

Grrrr, no TV for the next couple days.

Olympic fun

So far, the Olympics have been entertaining, but when I am annoyed when I see stories like this.

UPDATE: Ok, so if that wasn't bad enough, now you have this. "Lin was lip-syncing to the sound of another girl, 7-year-old Yang Peiyi, who was heard but not seen, apparently because she was deemed not cute enough." Not cute enough? That's a little insane.

Lazy weekend

We didn't do much this weekend. We watched the X Games, and did some tax-free shopping. Other than that, I think this picture sums up the weekend.
