Take me away, a secret place/A sweet escape, take me away/Take me away to better days

Even with being as busy as I was (and boy, I was busy) I still watched the sweep of the Tigers.
Friday - at home multitasking, watching the game whilst creating Lucy’s video.
Twins 11, Tigers 1
Well, what a fun game to watch! Everyone had a shot at smacking the ball around The Dome. I spent the whole game talking to myself or Amy (via the phone.) It was almost like I was there.
Note: After Gomez was taken out by Pudge’s throw and he sat up I said to Amy (via phone) “If he throws up right now I am going to throw-up.”

Saturday
– on the bar crawl
Twins 4, Tigers 1
I watched most of the game whilst “crawling” through Nordeast Minneapolis (see below for details.) Each bar had a TV and each TV had the game on.

Sunday – at The Dome
Twins 7, Tigers 6
What a lovely day for baseball. The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing and the covered Metrodome stadium was a perfect 70 degrees. Amy and I sat in our usual seats with The Regulars (we need to start making up nicknames for them.) Unfortunally our “usual seats” happen to be in the “Anit-Boof” section of The Dome. The last three games we sat in these seats Boof was the pitcher and each game was a little shaky so the crowd would go “Boooo and we aren’t saying Boof!” You can only imagine how tense the first few innings were for us. I won’t go in to details about The World’s Longest First Half of the First Inning but the Tigers made it look like they were hitting of a tee. However, the rest of the game (minus a snooze-worthy 7th/8th) was well worth the drama.

In conclusion…
Twins had five game sweep at home.

Don’t forget…


non-baseball but no less important
WARNING: There appears to be more swearing than necessary but Mondays do that to me.

The Ann B. Davis Birthday Bar Crawl
What the hell am I talking about? Hang with me for a moment…
Saturday night I attended the Monday Night Happy Hour Crew Semi-Annual Bar Crawl (my second time on their bar crawl.) The whole “Ann B. Davis Birthday” came in effect when we decided we needed a theme. You see, there were two other groups on almost the same bar crawl schedule. One wore red t-shirts and sombreros (for Cinco de Mayo) and the other one were hipster bicyclists. We decided to celebrate Ann B. Davis’ birthday. She turned 82 years old this weekend. Some of you may be asking who the fuck Ann B. Davis is…well, she played Alice on the Brady Bunch. After a few beers we decided we needed a theme song too. Henceforth we walked around NordEast Minneapolis singing “Who the fuck is Alice” by the Eagles (or at least their version.)
I don’t know why she’s leaving, or where she’s gonna go/ I guess she’s got her reasons but I just don’t wanna know/’Cause for twenty four years I’ve been living next door to Alice/Alice, who the fuck is Alice/

Bullet Points (Bar Crawl Edition):
* We started out in NordEast Minneapolis at Elsie’s and my first beer was a Sam Adam’s Cherry Wheat (interesting but too “cherry” tasting for me.) Approximately 9 hours and 45 minutes later we stepped out of Mayslack’s.
* Sunday morning I spent a half hour looking through the photos I took, alternating between laughing and groaning (in embarrassment.)
* Somehow we ended up celebrating the local band Stingray’s reunion gig.
* 25 games of Photo Hunt – Penthouse Edition were played throughout the bars. Let’s just say “Sofonda Tots” is on a lot of High Scores lists.

This guy's name is Joel and we didn't know him but he was in love with Tiff by the end of the night.

Someone in a Nordeast bar bathroom really loved Nikki Sixx (and it wasn't me.)

Music of the Day
I don’t think I have ever posted something so bubblegum or popish before but I can’t get this damn song out of my head! It is so catchy and is the perfect summer song!

Natasha Bedingfield – Pocketful of Sunshine















Swear count: Whoa, it is unusually high today at 7
