Errand runner

I got to run several errands today. Finally got to get to the BANK and get some cash which was absolutely necessary (grin). Also returned the Halo game to EBX at the Crystal Mall. I thought the game sucked so I went and got a refund. Did some other odds and ends too.

It's also getting colder outside. Brr.. It's not too bad, I can still go out in a t-shirt and coat and survive, but I can tell the colder weather is approaching. Eesh..

Blog stuff and whatever

The archives have changed slightly. Old posts are now listed properly. My version of "properly" is ascending order, meaning from oldest to newest, not newest to oldest. Old posts will be at the top, new ones at the bottom. To me this is much easier to read. You can check this out by looking at any archive whether date-based or category based.

I got home from work yesterday at my usual time, ate some dinner then said to meself:

"I think I'll rest for a few minutes."

So I laid down. --ZONK-- I was out like a light, still wearing clothes, shoes and all.

I wake up at 2:30am.

"Shit."

This sucks because I can't go back to bed.. I just slept a long time. I'll be up for the rest of the day now.

I go to my computer. Three voice mails (my voice mails are e-mailed to me, Vonage rocks) and a few e-mails. Two of which were from someone I was supposed to meet last night.

"Shit."

I e-mail her back and explain that I zonked out. Fortunately she knows I like to nap sometimes when I get home from work so it's not all that bad. Damage control initiated. (heh)

I check the blog and I got a comment (two, actually) from a girl I knew years ago.

"Neato!"

I comment back. Good to hear from old friends. I hope she still has long hair. (grin)

While I'm up doing basically nothing but waiting for the sun to come up, I decide to do laundry. Why not. I got the time.

The dryer just buzzed so I'm off to hang clothes.

Red Sox Win again!

Being a New England native, I'm a Red Sox fan. No, I don't know the player's names or their stats or whatever. I'm just a fan. I'm also not one of those guys who watches sports on television. Can't say I'm really a sports guy. As a matter of fact I've been watching very little tv these days. But anyway..

The 'Sox made history tonight, coming back from a 3 game deficit to force a game 7 in the series - and that's never been done before. Cool beans. I was happy to see them win - especially against the Yankees who seem to just dominate everyone in their path (but not tonight!!)

Things have been going A-OK for New England for several years now. The Patriots have won 2 Superbowls - something I'd never thought I'd see happen. The UCONN Men's and Women's basketball teams both had championship victories at the same time. Now the only one left is the 'Sox - which I think is the most important one.

I am just not used to seeing our teams winning. It's not that they aren't good enough. It just always seems that they run into strains of bad luck. But luck seems to be riding on our side right now. Will the 'Sox take it home? Don't know. I'm too used to too many years of the 'Sox having bad luck. But who knows, maybe this will change. Who's to say for sure.
