September 2009

Ups and Downs of the week.

 Red Sox – Pretty sure bet they’ll make the post-season. Close call with Lester getting drilled tonight, but it looks like he’ll be ok. Just hope no one else gets hurt between now and Game 1 of the first series.

  Sudden death – Saw my neighbor’s (Neighbor-A) dog get run over today. He was an old, old English Setter who was deaf as a post and had a bad habit of sleeping behind cars. I nearly ran him over with the Z4 once. I had to jack up the car to get him out from under it. My neighbor across the street (Neighbor-B) wasn’t so lucky tonight. He was very distraught about it. The dog’s owner was sad, but knew it would happen sooner or later. It’s a shame poor Neighbor-B has to deal with the memory of running the dog over, though. 

 Autumn – Love this time of year. Not as pretty here as in New England, but the weather is awesome and harvest will be starting soon.

Ups and Downs of the week.

 Red Sox – Doing really well lately. Looks like they’ll make it into the post-season.

  Renault F1 – They won’t contest the charges that they intentionally crashed one car to help their other car win. Same as admitting guilt. Shame on them. F1 really needs to start eliminating cheaters from the series. 

 New Restaurant in Town – Two Flowers is awesome.

  Narcissism – It’s becoming the norm. Sadly.

Ups and Downs of the week.

 Silly CNN Headlines – I’d like to think someone at CNN has a sense of humor, but I tend to believe they missed this one entirely. Still, The Onion must be jealous.

Who needs a lax security chief?

Meh  Red Sox - Playing better some days and not so much on others. They’ll most likely stumble and stagger into the post season. All bets are off then.

  Formula One shenanigans – Did Renault really fix a race by ordering Nelson Piquet, Jr. to crash? If so, it’s a very dark day for F1. Even worse than the McLaren cheating scandal. Shame on Renault if it’s true and major shame on Piquet if this is just a case of being a disgruntled former employee.

 Giancarlo Fisichella – The Italian finally gets his wish, to drive for Ferrari. And at Monza, no less. Best of luck to him. He’s got every Tifosi in the world on his side.

I guess I needed a reminder that life goes on even after a loss like the one my family suffered one month ago. Today Mommie Deerest brought her twins by for a quick snack. They’re really growing up fast.
