I like the Command Post as a starting point for the design of my future homepage; now, I’ve finally found a site that I think I can use for my blog. I really like this guy’s design, and he offers his MovableType templates for free download and use. Yay! Now I have something to work on between the commercials during the Super Bowl tomorrow… :)
The good news is, Senator Joe has confirmed he will be participating in an evening candidate forum at the Wyndham Hotel, which is literally a block away from where I work. (Kerry, Clark, and Kucinich will be there, too.)
Going to any evening event in Phoenix is somewhat inconvenient for me, since the last Mesa-bound express bus of the day leaves at around 5:20 PM. So unless Becky agrees to meet me downtown and go to the forum with me, I’m not exactly sure how I’ll get home. But I’ll figure something out. One way or another, I plan to be there.
I wonder if Joe will have a rally of some sort before (or after) the forum? John Kerry is planning a “Rally for America’s Future,” according to his website.
Amid all the political commentary of the past week, I have failed to post anything about a significant developent in my life which occurred last weekend: I bought a fish.
He’s a Betta fish, and he’s the one on the right in the photo above. (The fish on the left is Becky’s female Betta, Capone.) And yes, he’s a he — the first male pet in the heretofore X-chromosome-dominated animal kingdom of the Brendan & Becky house. Toby, Sasha, Butter, Ozzie, Harriet and Capone, meet the man of the house: Gimli.
Yes, his name is Gimli. :) It was the first thing that came to mind, and I’m sticking with it.
And lest you think that Betta fish, which cost roughly $3.00 at Wal-Mart, are silly pets to have, think again: it turns out Bettas can be downright heroic. :)
