Bad blogger! [17 May 2009|10:45pm]
An effort at redemption. My trip to Florida.

Multiple new posts, travelogue-ing the journey from Colorado to Georgia. Vast fields of nothingness! Shrieking hordes of kids! "Inland hurricanes"!

I started an England blog. It's over here: goinghomeforthefirsttime.blogspot.com.

I'll probably throw a post up here every time I update over there.

I'm not keeping track anymore [20 Dec 2008|11:37pm]
I just discovered the existence of something called the British Universities American Football League, which means there's college football in Britain.

What day is this? 5? 4? I dunno [17 Dec 2008|11:27pm]
I am not good at this, which I suppose is really rather sad.

But I did get Christmas presents arranged and shipped, even if I'll only actually see two people open any of theirs, and neither of them is related to me.

Ooh...and I found sinister happiness in dumping someone from my Facebook friends list for only the second time. Sinister? Maybe not. Maybe it's just actually taking a rare stand. Yeah, that sounds much better. :)

Happy No. 4, I think [15 Dec 2008|02:07am]
Man, this is hard when you have a bunch of days off all bunched together and you don't do any-damn-thing.

Let's see. I actually found myself intrigued by the BBC's live-text updates of the fifth day of the Test match in cricket between England and India. It made me feel all English and stuff. So that's kind of exciting, I guess.

I'm way too cynical for this. :)

On the third day of happies... [14 Dec 2008|02:02am]
Umm...it snowed? And snow is pretty? And I only slid out once while driving home? And I remembered to turn into the skid and everything was cool?

Yeah, because other than that, I got up and went to work. And that was about it. Oh, and I went to the bar.

Eight days of happiness, part the second [12 Dec 2008|10:41pm]
Well, it's a good thing this happened, because I haven't done a damn thing all day, and it's looking like that's not going to change.


My little sisters, my pride and joy, were both accepted to my alma mater, the University of Georgia, today. While not a shocking development -- they are, after all, the smartest and finest people, well, ever -- it's still a good thing.

Of course, if they decide to go somewhere else... :)

Because syrinx asked me to [12 Dec 2008|03:40am]
And because I found something truly bizarre and amusing. A minute and eight seconds of pure ... something. Just try to get the song out of your head.

The rules are that for 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day.
Tag 8 people to do the same.

I could live to be 115 years old, and this would bring me to tears every time. (It's from the Changing of the Guard on Sept. 12, 2001.)

Georgia 18, Georgia Tech 6 [02 Jun 2008|08:52pm]
No, it's not football season. It's baseball season. Specifically, the NCAA playoffs. Georgia and Georgia Tech were drawn into the same four-team regional, which works on a double-elimination basis. Basically, you have to lose twice to be eliminated.

Georgia, unfortunately, lost its first game on Friday to, of all teams, Lipscomb. That meant they had to win four games in three days, including two against the last remaining undefeated team in the bracket, which happened to be the Nerds. Georgia Tech actually beat Georgia two of three times the teams played in the regular season, including 11-1 at Georgia. (Georgia won the annual game at Turner Field, though.)

So beating them twice in two days might be hard, right?

Yeah, not so much.

Georgia whipped Tech 8-0 on Sunday, getting a four-hit shutout from Nick Montgomery. A shutout is difficult in college baseball, because the parks are pretty small and they play with metal bats. Shutouts are even more remarkable when pitched by a guy whose life was in danger last year because of a blood clot related to major elbow surgery.

But beating Tech once wasn't enough. They had to do it again to advance. And they did. And how. 18-6, yo. 18-6!

That's what I call a whupping. Put it this way: Georgia Tech hasn't scored 18 points against Georgia in FOOTBALL since 2000.

So what season is it that produces highs of 59 and thunderstorms? Because that's what we're having tomorrow.

What the hell happened to spring? Remember how it was snowing May 1? It was 90 today. I feel I have been conned out of an entire season.

Something that occurred to me tonight:

Frequently, we'll hear on the scanner that a particular person is "a probation client" and "restrained from alcohol and controlled substances," a common condition of probation.

But, um, isn't everyone restrained from controlled substances, at least the illegal ones?

By way of an update, yes, it did in fact snow today. 4/10ths of an inch, according to the weather service, though I didn't see any accumulating when I looked out the window. Still.

This is a weird, weird state.

Today in Lamar, Colorado, the low was 37 degrees. Not actually that unusual. The high, though, was 91. How do you decide what to wear when the temperature changes that radically?

Today in Grand Junction, by the way, it was 77. Tomorrow it's supposed to be 50, and it's entirely possible it might snow in the morning.

It's May 1, for cryin' out loud.
