I don't know why, but I've been insanely tired lately. I mean, I've been working hard, but not much different than before. Maybe it's the heat sucking my energy out. In any case, I went home early yesterday and slept for about 10 hours. Let's see if that helps any.

Luckily, I'm still a happy guy. Some of my happiness comes from my good friend the internet. Since I don't have a quality blog post ready (wait until I see Pirates of the Caribbean this weekend - the reviews look really bad!), I'll give you some more fruits of my internet habit (and yes, they almost all come from Boingboing, what of it?):
