1. Is it just me or does Ryanair appear to be in constant sale mode? Last weekend I eyed the airline's midnight Monday deadline for "free" flights, then watched as the airline hawked a fare sale ending midnight Thursday. Now we've got another free fare sale to contend with, this one finishing up on Monday at midnight.
2. Is it just me or is Alphabeat the best band ever? The Danish seven-member band are rocking the UK right now with their song "Fascination," which reminds me of the Go-Gos, or of what might have happened in 1984 if a bunch of Brits had tried to merge the Go-Gos' California vibe with some synthesizer action. I like "Boyfriend," another of Alphabeat's songs, even more than their current UK single.
3. I'll be on a true holiday this Sunday through next, in Trinidad and Grenada, though I am hoping that a publication or two will emerge from the jaunt. I will make a sincere effort to crank a few blog posts out next week but I might just be too relaxed to force myself to sit in front of a screen before returning home.
