Meet Hot Christians Online Now!

It comes as no surprise to me that advertisers use software that searches personal profiles for information to better target their ads. I'm male and I'm protestant. But honestly, who thought it would be a good idea to create an ad with scantily-clad, buxom women and declare that these "Christian" women want to meet and/or talk to me?

The ad in question takes you here where there are decidedly less-buxom, "Christian Spicey or Sweet" models pictured. You can "search and view thousands of Christian singles free" there.

If only there were an actual building that Christians could go to in order to meet one another . . .

The Humidity, Part II

It has been the little annoyances that have made living in humidity the most difficult. My towel never really dries. I got caught in a wicked rainstorm and my shoes were still a bit damp a week later - despite leaving them in the open to dry. There are always tiny little red-brown fruit flies in my bathroom. The condensation that accumulates at the base of a glass of water is still there a day later. And my not so stainless steel knife now has rust spots on it.

The one advantage is that I rarely have to water my plant.

The Humidity Is Coming, the Humidity Is Coming

Everyone says how awful D.C. summers are, (maybe I'm tempting fate here) but not so much. It's been humid all right, but not hot. We've had one bad weekend so far where it was 95 degrees and very humid, but other than that it's been very rainy and temperate. It has been raining off and on for several weeks now, including today.

Not at all what I expect from summer. We've had two tornado watches so far - which is supposedly a step below a tornado warning - but have yet to top 100 degrees.

Not that I would have gone that many places anyway. Laura sprained her ankle last week and has been holed up inside. And the city is crawling with European tourists (a byproduct of the weak dollar versus the euro.)

Woo hoo!

The Salt Lake Tribune isn't exactly clear what and along what route a train is going to go to Salt Lake International - it implies that TRAX is going to the airport, but the headlines says commuter rail is going there. (There is a difference.)

I'm excited, and this is a sign that Ralph Becker is doing good work. I do not know much about him because I moved before the last mayoral election. I cannot wait to ride the new FrontRunner commuter line to Ogden. Be in Salt Lake in August.
