The above text was written with . A powerful, but rather arcane markup language. I first encountered it, at the research lab, where it was being used to write mathematical formulas like this, . Its sole advantage for this blog is that I can use it to mark up my text, with more freedom than I normally have, unless I pay extra.

Friday night, Anne and Joanie went to go see the Joffrey Ballet, a hoity-toity New York ballet company. I’m sure that it was a good show. Unfortunately, it being the beginning of her spring break, Anne was coming down with a cold. She blames those preschool three-year-olds earlier in the week. There were eighteen of them and it took three educators to successfully corral them. Because Anne wasn’t feeling up to it, I biked alone in the park. Alone is a relative word, since half of Saint Lois was there too. It was a beautiful day. I got 16 miles.
Returning to the photo with this post, I photo-shopped the two offending digits. I’m trying to keep this blog, at least PG-13 and not R-rated. I suspect alcohol was involved. The scene’s background looks like a bar-room-room-room. These two are usually found in one of these drinking establishments, on a Friday night. Then there’s the cryptic caption, I definitely smell booze on that one.
“I’m shocked, shocked to find drinking going on here.”
“Here is your drink, sir.”
“Oh, thank you.”
