Boats are real money pits, and require constant attention in a salt water environment. But I suppose that if you have the coin to buy them, you have the coin to maintain them.
In other news, my hiatus cost the blog nothing. A few more websites have linked to the weirder posts on this blog, and I broke page view records while leaving the blog unattended. I gained 300 Technorati ranking points for nothing. I hope this is a trend. That way, by neglecting the blog, I will get up to a million hits a day. It's the lazy man's way to succeed in the blogsphere.
