As I mentioned, I went to Ithaca this weekend. We went to a wedding, which was nice. Weddings are… happy. I haven’t been to a wedding for quite a long time, I don’t remember the last one I went to (I think I was about 4 at the time), so it was nice to go to one. We also went to Niagara Falls on Sunday and Monday. The falls are quite impressive, they’re rather humbling. But, I must admit, they’re really not quite as impressive as I would have thought/hoped. But it’s still a site worth seeing at least once in your life.

One thing that bothers me is the security force at Champaign’s Willard Airport. The entire force seems to be over 60. Now, I’m not expert, but it doesn’t seem to me that these are the best people to be guarding against terrorists and other bad people. It doesn’t exactly instill confidence in me to know that if someone were to pull a gun, half the security guards might keel over from heart attack. After that it isn’t very hard to force your way through into the cockpit of one of the grounded planes and take off. You could hit the Sears tower in about an hour. This is probably enough time to scramble jets and shoot the plane down, but still…

hey, someone send me e-mail or something. Is there anyone reading this? Apparently so, there’s about 60 page view (most of which are me checking to see if the site is still there). So someone let me know what’s on your mind, or something. Yea.

There’s this Coke ad on TV, I first saw it sometime late last summer. Lauren has part of it in her profile, which reminded me. It’s quite possibly the best commercial ever. Well, no, but it’s still pretty good. I’ve searched high and low on the Internet to find a copy, but I can’t. I guess there isn’t much use in ripping commercials, but I wish someone would. The commercial itself is just various coke bottles and parts of coke bottles on a plain white background. And different voices are narrating are saying all sorts of stuff, usually starting out with “for” then something. An example, what Lauren has in her profile, would be “for those who love you, for those who love you not, for those who love you a little, for those you love you a lot.” That’s not an exact quote, I tihnk some of those “for”’s are “to”’s, but it’ll do for now since she signed off. Anyway, if anyone happens to find a copy of this commercial on the Internet or tapes it and rips it or something like that, let me know, I want a copy so I can watch it over and over again until I’m sick of it (like all good things).
