to take a valerian tablet before Ohio State plays in the national championship game. Doooode.

Trail running is A Good Thing.

Except, watch out for loose stones on the path. Also, it's best to clean abrasions with peroxide right away.

That is all.

Um kay, haven't been commenting much on World Cup because SO.MUCH.SPORTS.OMG. Doesn't mean I haven't been following. (Actually, my whole company is in the throes of World Cup fever right now. The sports page is a hot commodity, trading for at least 3 packs of smokes on the blackmarket. Seriously.)

So. Here's the thing.


What the hell, people? You give up an early lead and let the Swedes tie the game in the last minute. Oh for shame! Your boys had better shape up; at this rate, I'll be putting money on the Germans to take the whole thing.

I haven't seen the Argentina-Netherlands match yet, so comments there. As for Mexico, they advanced and I'm happy. I'll be curious to see the Argentina-Mexico and Portugal-Netherlands matches, though.

Don't get me started about US-Ghana. Oy!

On that note...

I'm a sports fan. I truly am. [profile] virginmartyr1 and I follow the Padres; I was glued to ESPN.com the week before the NFL draft (AJ Hawk at #5 baby!); and I like running at the Y because I get to watch European Premiere league soccer -- er, football -- on tv. I like sports, period.

But I could care less about Barry Bonds passing up Babe Ruth's homerun record. All this hoopla for the man to be #2 in the record books? No thanks. Not interested. Now, if he stays in the game long enough to make a run at Hank Aaron's -- well I'll clap politely.

On the other hand, I fear I'm becoming a dyed-in-the-wool Lebron James fan. The Cleveland Cavaliers have never been a terribly impressive team; [profile] virginmartyr1's comment was "There's basketball in Cleveland?" But the Cavs are in the second round of the playoffs, playing hard enough to have tied the series against arguably the best team in the Eastern division. What's impressed me is how Lebron has encouraged, inspired, passed, found the open man, and in general did everything a team leader should do to help his squad win the game. I watched the last 8 minutes of game 4 last night (8 minutes that lasted 41) and was impressed. When it comes to sheer physical ability and heart-stopping athleticism there are several NBA athletes that come to mind. Dwayne Wade is a phenomenal talent; watching him is a delight. But when it comes to leadership and being a team player, Lebron's in a class by himself.

a good day

Last night I started learning how to use one of these:


I am a little stiff today but I don't care. I got to hit people with a sword yesterday, and it was good.

  1. I started catching up with last season's BSG. Oh so good. I really like the understated tension, particularly in scenes with the Old Man. It has its flaws, true, but it's enjoyable genre television.

  2. I need to take a hiatus from news. I feel like a total pussy for doing so, but reading all this bs day after day is taking a toll on me. Fortunately there are batting cages in which I can vent my supreme frustration with the universe.

  3. My Buckeyes lost a tough game to Texas this weekend. It's taken me a while to come to grips, but the fact is their offense just stalled out. I think the offensive line needs some tweaking, they just couldn't protect either Smith or Zwick in the pocket and were shut down. Oh well, it's early in the season. Let's hope adjustments can be made.

  4. Every trip I take back to Ohio illuminates for me how my parents are slowly becoming less able to take care of their home. My sisters do what they can to take care of Mom and Dad; my brother works in the yard every trip he makes to Cleveland. I spent most of my time in Ohio weeding Dad's rose garden. There were thistles nearly 4.5 feet tall and morning glories choking out all the rose bushes. It was pretty sad. I'm coming to the realization that I only have my parents for a finite time, and that I want to spend more of that time with them. In the short term that means more trips to Ohio. In the mid-term (ie next couple years) that will mean a move back to the east coast. I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around it but I feel in my gut it's the right thing to do.

everyone was so quiet around here today, how odd. today at work i was bored out of my mind -- not that i wasn't busy, simply that i was bored -- and was hoping for some distraction on lj. no luck for me. le sigh. more resumes have been sent around, so here's hoping i get a nibble or two in the next week or so. i need work that is intellectually stimulating, please.

[livejournal.com profile] virginmartyr1 and i went to a padres game tonight FOR FREE which is always the best. it was a great pitching matchup, jake peavy versus roger clemens. both teams played excellent defense but ultimately the padres' roberts and giles came up with 2 runs and we won. excellent game.

tonight after the game i got out the power drill and put together some little storage thingy from ikea. oooooh grrrrr, power tools!

sleepy now.

I watched boxing last night. I'd never done so before but as I'd loads of pent-up aggression and no where to put it (see [livejournal.com profile] wafflelips for details) it seemed like a good compromise. It was neat. Roy Jones Jr, a light-heavyweight, versus John Ruiz, a heavyweight. Ruiz didn't have a chance; Jones' hands and feet were too fast for him. He controlled the entire bout and won a unanimous decision. He deserved it; he's an excellent fighter.

Another weird dream last night, this time about capturing an alligator that was loose in someone's house. Don't ask me.

I read that the WUSA has suspended operations due to a lack of funding. If you're interested, here's an article that goes into more detail. I can't decide whether I'm more angry or sad at this turn of events. The games have been consistently popular in San Diego, and they attract a lot of families with children. Maybe that's the problem; they aren't marketing to a bunch of 20-30 year old men who are going to guzzle beer at the games, so they have a hard time finding sponsors.

The missus just emailed; she got two free tickets to the Founder's Cup! This Sunday, she and I will be in Torero stadium watching Mia Hamm's and Brianna Scurry's teams play for the WUSA championship. Dude!

Women's World Cup 2003 opens in a month; the USA plays its first match on September 21. And now I shall perform a happy dance of the most elated, spastic variety. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Some matches (including the FINALS) will be played in LA; I have considered selling an organ or two so that I may purchase tickets to one of these games. At this point, I'm leaning toward not selling the organs and watching on tv; but the jury's still out. Heh.
