The weekend has been spent doing many moving things. Both terri_osborne
and I have started moving things into our respective offices, and between the two of us (mostly her) we finished off the painting. I've also (gasp) made some progress on GWP2, which is good, as I have to have it finished in two weeks...................
Tomorrow, I move more stuff into my office, and also start boxing some things up here (mostly things on/in items that will be moved). I also have to look into a new king-sized bed frame.
Then tomorrow night is the final day of the black belt promotion. ( Collapse )
In other news, and with apologies to greeneyedkzin
, and any other Red Sox fans reading this, the Rays are beating the BoSox 3-1 after eight innings. In the top of the eighth,
J.D. Drew struck out looking with the bases loaded to short-circuit a potential rally. BTW, David "Big Fatty" Ortiz, the Bestest Clutch Hitter EVAR!!!!!!111111!!!!!!!1111eleventy-one1
111, has been up twice in potential run-scoring situations with one out. The first time, he struck out, with Dustin Pedroia thrown out stealing (on, I might add, the world's most perfect throw to second by Dioner Navarro). The second time, with runners at first and second, he grounded into a forceout.
Three outs to the possibility of the Tampa Bay Rays going to the World Series for the first time in their ten-year history, and good for them, say I. They were the league's punching bag for a decade, but they've spent the last several years using their basement-level status to make some excellent draft choices, and those picks are the backbone of the 2008 AL East champions.
