This shape was pure
I saw three angles, of that I am sure”

Who knew? What a star.  My new favorite thing.

Quiet House….

13 Oct

Going on vacation tomorrow for the first time since we got Tubbs. He went to the kennel this morning… the house feels super weird without him about. First time we’ve been away from him for more than 12 hours or so… feels eerily quiet.

I skipped out of work early to check up on him, against the advice of some colleagues who felt that it would only upset him. In the end I’m glad we went (met up with Cat up there), ‘cos he was super pleased to see us, and at the end of the visit he went trotting back to his little kennel without a second thought. This morning he almost had to be dragged in there, so I feel like our visit allowed him to associate us with the kennel, which was clearly a good thing.

Off to Cozumel tomorrow, exciting, although it’s supposed to be pissing it down. Luckily I like storms.

NFL: Week Five

8 Oct

Chargers back in business baby.  Win out and you make the playoffs, woot.  Poor old Saints lost again and an under strength Pittsburgh hit the snot out of Seattle.

Cowboys just won one of the most improbable games ever. 20 seconds to go they fluff the 2pnt conversion that would have tied the game…    successful onside kick, and they end up kicking the field goal from 53 yards out (twice actually as the bills got a time out off right before the first kick) that wins the game.  Crazy stuff.

Could The Indians Win The World Series?

If they get past the yankees,  it’s a definite possibility.  CC is money, this Carmona kid pitching tomorrow is lights out lately, the bats are hot as hell, and there’s a filthy swagger about them that just tells me they believe.   Tomorrow’s game is key:  if the Yanks go two down that’s a real tough hole to dig out of.   If the indians get past them, who’s going to stop ’em…  they’ll wipe the floor with the redsox relief, and I can’t see any of the national league clubs troubling them at this point.

And could somebody tell me what they did the 40 year old Kenny Lofton please?  TBS replaced him with a 25 year old body double today.  Amazing.
