Fighting blog stagnation with my 75th post

For this blog's handful of loyal readers, I apologize for my nearly month-long absence from the blogosphere. Regularly blogging is a big commitment and I just haven't found the time lately. With the onset of summer though, I hope to regain some regularity.

Now let's catch up on the past month, shall we?

How Much Do You Make?
A friend recently released his latest creation, a site devoted to collecting salary information and sorting it by job title, employer, industry and location. This is incredibly useful data, so do him a favor and add to his sample. I told him that if I linked to him, he would get lots of traffic, so don't make me a liar.


Go Cubs Go!
The 2008 baseball season has been berry, berry good to the Chicago Cubs thus far. The best record in baseball? Sure, why not. It's only fitting that the Cubs should seem nearly unstoppable on their road to the World Series. I honestly believe it's meant to be this year. I don't want to jinx them, but I can't remember the last time that the Cubbies were clicking so well. There was always something not to like about them, but it's hard to pinpoint any major problems this year. Also, I recently had the sweetest Cubs seats of my life--about 20 rows behind home plate. The Cubs won (Of course! Losing games at Wrigley is SO 2007...)and the experience of being that close to the action was as incredible as I had always imagined it would be. You can see some of the photos here.


In Other News
I'm still waiting for my Economic Stimulus check.

Indiana Jones was a little disappointing. As someone said when I was exiting the theater, "We waited 20 years and that was the best script they could come up with?"

I still can't get enough of the Bill O'Reilly Flips Out Remix.

The Back to the Future set is gone forever and Doc Brown's clock tower was damaged, too. Now Marty's stuck in the 50s forever. Who's the butt-head who started that fire?


Who Are You?
It's my 75th post, so please permit me a bit more navel-gazing than usual. My Google Analytics account only tells me so much. Leave a comment and tell me one thing: Do you know me? I'm curious if this blog is being subscribed to or read by anyone outside of my immediate circle of friends and acquaintances. Just wondering...


Well, hopefully it won't be another month before I post, but who can say for sure? I'll close with a cool video that I received via my subscription to Very Short List, a service that sends you one e-mail per weekday with a link to a cool Web site, book, movie or video. It's definitely worth signing up for.
