OBX Travelogue - Part V: Friday and Saturday 8/27 - 8/28

On Friday, I left the Outer Banks around 6 in the morning and made the trip back home in dense fog. There were traffic cops everywhere but I made it back in only four hours. I spent the day at my parents' house, cleaning digging tools, leeching laundry privileges, and getting reacquainted with the cats. I returned to Sterling on Friday night and then spent all of Saturday settling in and paying bills. The worst part about paying bills the old-fashioned way is having to write the account number on the check. Is it really more efficient for a data entry specialist to read some chicken scratch numbers off the check when they could just look up the account based on the full name on the check? Of course half of my bills must still be paid the old-fashioned way including, ironically, Adelphia's online cable modem service.

I also got a Jury Duty questionnaire from Loudoun County. Maybe that means I'll be on some backwater case where a horse got stolen or something.

The End

Season Three of Alias comes out on DVD today. Apparently amazon.com users aren't multilingual. Though season three wasn't as good as the first two seasons, it was still better than most other shows on TV, and its individual parts added up to be greater than the whole. There were plenty of great guest appearances as well, including Vivica Fox, Quentin Tarantino, and David Carradine from Kill Bill, and Ricky Gervais from The Office. Word on the street is that the writer of Alias, J.J. Abrams, is now the director for Mission Impossible 3, mainly because he gave Tom Cruise the DVDs to two seasons of Alias and got him hooked.
