Ah, the night is callin’/And it whispers to me softly “come and play”/But I, I am fallin’

Grasping at straws here...


Twins offer Guerrier, Kubel contracts

Non-Baseball but no less important

Scenes from Monday Night Happy Hour


Even though I was properly warned…
So, I live in the ghetto and I am always aware of my surroundings when I walk from my car to the backdoor. Sometimes I run, just because I psych myself out. Last night I creaked open the back gate and WHAM! There was a creepy shadowy figure looming in the backyard. My heart literally stopped. I froze. (This is the part where I have neither the “Fight” nor the “Flight” defense mechanism. So…I freeze. After I took a couple deep calming breaths I said out loud “It is only a snowman, it is only a snowman.” And you know what, I really was a snowman.

Lesson: When you live in the ghetto seeing a snowman scares the shit out you

Score: Lucy – 4, Bailey’s - 1
The love/hate relationship between Lucy (age 3) and Bailey’s (thank god she’s cute) has taken a new turn. Last night I snapped a couple pictures in succession of Lu and Bailey’s. You decide the winner!

Thank you for blogging in the off season. It's fun to read about your bar hopping, bus adventures and co-workers. I am already bored with winter & the off season!
