    How's you arm? That Yankee rookie 1st baseman with the Princeton history degree had to pitch two innings last night since the Yanks were getting blown out and they didn't want to waste a reliever being down by double digits. .

    He probably was distracted and turned toward the distraction.
    What or who was in your shower?

    I immediately pictured the roommate in the shower in Shaun of the Dead, but I can't find the clip.

    Not injured from pitching.
    Have them call me, sign me to the minimum, prorated or otherwise.
    They can cut me after a day, pay me, and I'll act like it's a postdoc.

    That sounds like something BC would say.

    Got a mass mailing about ensuring safety during construction at Ames High.
    I knew we shouldn't have skipped all those grades. Now it's coming back to bite us.

    If he's anything like my boy he dropped his pants and stood there with hands on his hips just letting it fly then adjust to eventually direct it into the toilet. It seems like he gets it directed properly just as it starts tapering off.

    I've tried teaching him to use his hands to point and shoot, but that seems to be about the only time he doesn't have his hand down there.

    Job #3 is a go.
    I was concerned, since yesterday's manager kept referring to my degree. That's a huge red flag.
    But she asked if I wanted to move forward and said she'd forward it to the folks I'd be working with. I assumed that carried an unspoken "and I'll recommend that they get over it."
    But the folks I'd work for love me, so they broke the "maybe in two weeks" timeframe and called today. Now someone is trying to work over HR to get me into a training session that kicks off Tuesday.

    No, that’s something I’d do, pending the person in the shower.

    I am pretty excited about tomorrow. Wine on the deck party is on. Bunch o'neighbors and friends coming over. Weather does not appear to suck. Refrig is working. Have ton-o-wine.

    Won't have to do my usual George Thorogood thing "Yeah, you know when I drink alone I prefer to by myself". o_O

    I should probably buy a key lime pie or two. ;)

    Of course I may have some monster bug issues. On the stucco wall next to my deck this morning.

    We got it today, along with a more detailed breakdown of those first few days.
    More info than necessary right now, so it's good.

    In Illinois...by choice. Sister's 40th birthday. My aunt (our only aunt) and myself surprised her. Yes, she was surprised. Here's the kicker...

    My aunt's taking the official guest bedroom, my sister's old room. I am holed up currently in my old room. Iiiiii'mmmm....curious to see how my semi-conscious mind is going to react when I wake up tomorrow. Suddenly transported back 25 years? Who knows.

    I resolved that by giving them old toothbrushes and a can of Comet. Get your head down there by the stale urine & scrub a couple of times and you learn how to aim the dang thing.
