To all RedSox fans... I'm sorry, but only a teensy weensy little bit

When I lived on the east coast and my baseball team played in California, the telecast would begin at 10 pm. It was a bitch.

I really did think about that last night. The Mariners played the Boston Red Sox last night starting at 10 pm Boston time. The score was 4-4 in the 9th inning. I was really sleepy. I set the TV to play for another hour, figuring by that time Boston will have hit another home run.

I woke up having to pee at midnight and I checked the score. They were still playing! 4-4 in the 12th. So I turned the TV back on and watched Boston take the lead and then I fell back asleep.

This morning, I learned that at 3 am Boston time, the Red Sox lost. 5 hours and 13 innings since the start of the game and less than 8 hours before the first pitch this afternoon.

WHACKO baseball. But, at least we're on the right side of the whack. Sorry, Boston, but actually, really, not a whole bunch. I'm sure you will win today.

The pool was packed this morning. Packed. People waiting. At 5:30 am. Most of the time I am the only one there but today, apparently, there was some kind of cattle call and everyone answered. It was the weirdest thing ever. I did see one woman I used to swim with all the time. She's been coming at 8 but this morning had to take someone to the airport. It was fun to see her again.

The home owners board is spending $3K for a security consultant and he's coming next Wednesday. The board president asked me to be in a small group of people who meet with him. For a lot of reasons (mostly the other people in the group) I'd rather not BUT on the other hand, what better way to hear condo gossip. And I can't really say no to Sandy. And maybe the one woman in the group who drives me nuts won't be able to attend.

The countertop guys forgot to test all the drawers. I went to open one yesterday and it was being held hostage by the countertop over hang. I finally got it open and I think I can sand down the obstruction enough so that it will clear easily but I need sand paper and/or a chisel. I think I'm going to see if there's any in the condo 'shop'. If I have to, I'll call the company and have them send the guys back to fix but I hope not.

My plan is to leave here about 10:30 to go to the ballpark. I'm looking forward to the fried avocado salad and the lobster mac and cheese and everything else. I'm skipping breakfast and plan to be starving when I get there.
