What Would Ulysses Do?

From the The Harry Ekman Gallery, date and title unknown
I am in the process of compiling a list of 30 Things I Will Do Before Turning 30.  The big day is still one year and nine months away but as some of them will take a bit of time to plan, save for, or get in shape for I think it's as good a time as any to start.  The full list will be published shortly (though perhaps with minor edits for public viewability) but one big challenge has just gotten bigger.

Friday, May 27, 2011 is my hero is easily one of the top one funniest things on the internet.  There is a reason it is first on my google reader.  Awesome!  Check it out!  Now!   

In no particular order, here are my favorite from the last couple of months.

Rub a Dub Pub

(updated May 22nd, 2011)

I have a vision of taking pictures of the pubs I go to while I'm here and keeping them all on one blog post so I have a huge list by the end. I know I will miss a few but it'll be fun to see how many I can get. For example, two of these pics I had to lift from their websites (The Camden Head and The Sun in Splendor). I could go back and take my own and may do so since they are in common places but I'll use these for now. I will build a link into the address should you want to see it on a map and, where possible, a link to the pub's page built into the name.

Come What May

Somehow it has been a month again.  How does that happen?!  The last few weeks saw me finish up the term (with good grades even), read a few novels, meet some new friends, spend time with some old ones, and successfully navigate a whirlwind tour of southwest Britain.  The following is a brief overview of the latter.  I would think of this as a random sampling rather than a proper narrative.  In no particular order, let me present our British Road Trip!  (click photos for larger versions)

The old library in Cardiff hosts an exhibition with two parts: an historic overview of the city and a selection of contemporary art by locals.  This graphic summed up the city for me really well.  I didn't expect to like Cardiff as much as I did, but the people were so friendly and the atmosphere so lively that it really grew on me.  Definitely recommend a visit.
