Now, I’ve heard there was a secret chord/That David played and it pleased the Lord/But you don’t really care for music do you?

Ah, Those Girls (well, one of them) is currently in Flo-rida to celebrate the kick-off of the Minnesota Twins 2009 Baseball season. I am anxiously following her Twitter to keep updated on all the happenings (and gossip.) No pressure girl!

Ticket Info
Well, single game tickets go on sale at noon on Saturday, March 7. Alas, I will not be able to man the phone and computer to score tickets for my usual Home Opener Posse. I will be heading to Duluth, MN in my Jeep with a 12-year old going to see David freaking Archuleta (runner-up to last year’s American Idol.) Yeah…go ahead, bring on the mocking!

Bad News Bears…er, Twins
Bonsor needs surgery

Don’t forget, I Twitter!

If I find that I do a lot of baseball Twittering at games I will create a new baseball-centric one. We’ll see how the first few weeks go. I am sure my “normal” Twitter people won’t want to read:

Dome Dog!
Beer me, Wally the Beer Man!
Where’s Marnie?
TWINGO was his name-o
Everyone loves Joe Mauer, he’s the hometown hero

Non-baseball but no less important

Randomly Random
*I saw a handful of people walking around with ash crosses on their foreheads. My natural instinct is to tap their arms and tell them they have a little schmutz on their face. My other instinct is to hiss and cover my eyes. I am trying to avoid both of those reactions.

*Zeppelin The Dog is going to puppy training classes at this frou-frou pet store in a bourgeois neighborhood. I need to make sure Zeppelin The Dog gets his AC/DC collar before the first class so we can rock it hardcore style! No fancy frills for us! We are representin’ SOUTHSIIIIIIDE. (Throws up my gang sign.)

*Spring Training (baseball for those who don’t know) starts tonight for the Minnesota Twins. First pitch at 6:05 p.m. against Boston. Baseball fever is HERE!

*I booked the hotel room in Duluth, MN (for when I take Olivia to see David Archuleta) and it is right next to the tattoo place that K-spra got hers at (during our drunken revelry.) Hmm…I wonder if it would be too “After School Special” if I brought Olivia there to learn about the perils of tattoos whilst I get one.

Music of the Day – Leonard Cohen Edition
I know that everyone loves Jeff Buckley’s rendition of “Hallelujah” but my favorite is the original by Leonard Cohen. His raspy (whiskey and cigarette) voice really strikes a chord on the song. Damien Rice also does a good version.


Thanks to Hassertime I have a working link if you want to check out Leonard Cohen. I mean, you obviously do.

Yeah, the worst is when you see a hot girl on Ash Wednesday, and she has a big black mark on her forehead, and your signals get crossed.

Firstly, I love that Leonard Cohen song. Secondly, I love "lord love a duck." Thirdly, 30 aint so bad.
