Before I go an. I should probably make it clear that the "Doc Lobster" character has nothing to do with the webcomic "Doctor Lobster" or its creator Michael Buanonaro. No offense, but I've never even heard of this strip until now, and Doc Lobster is an eastablished character from earlier incarnations of this comic. So there.

I had a pretty good weekend, which was only helped by the Pirates sweeping the Brewers. And, with the exception of today, I was there!

Also, congrats to thumbguy Jack Wilson, the Pittsburgh Pirates all-star representative! I've always loved Jack, and it's good to see him get the recognition he deserves. Even if he should have been voted in instead of being the Pirates pity rep...

After that, I had a little barbecue for some friends, and today I'm just kinda relaxing. Hope you're doing the same.

In the DC area? Looking for something to do this Saturday? Why not stop by Jammin' Java in Vienna, Virgina for the first-ever DC Standup: On The Record event? Hear five of the DC area's up-and-coming comedians (Frank Hong, Erin Conroy, Jared Stern, Larry XL, and, um, Chris White) as they record a group album. Admission is totally free - how can you pass that up? For more info, check out the DC Stand-Up recording page.
