On a whim, Taylor Jean and I decided to book a January trip to Munich. Now, I'll be the first to admit that there are probably more exciting places to go visit (London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Barcelona). But can you get me to any of those place for $360? Probably not (on the off hand chance that you can get me to any of those places on Star Alliance for $360, please be a doll and shoot me an email). However, I've been to Munich before and it is a great place to visit over a long weekend. And, if we are so inclined it is only a short hop on a train to the Bavarian alps and or Austria. Plenty of opportunities for sightseeing there is. Plus I get a chance to practice my German. Plus plus I'll get a nice little boost to my 2007 EQMS. Because as you all know, with 2006 almost out of the way, I already have to start thinking about how to keep my status in '08.

PS. If any of you have some tips for Munich, please let me know.

10 Resons Why Gay Marriage Should Be Illegal

01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

So according to this post here which came from Star Magazine (the real star magazine, not Grace Jones), the cause of the breakup between Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston was because Vince hooked up with the girl on the left. Wow. The picture below really doesn't do it justice, you need to see the big version at the link above.

The guy in the middle on the other hand...
