Oh my

I just want to post more Bull Durham dialogue...

Joe Reardon: He walked 18.

Larry: New league record!

Joe Reardon: Struck out 18.

Larry: Another new league record! In addition he hit the sportswriter, the public address announcer, the bull mascot twice...

[Joe laughs]

Larry: Also new league records! But, Joe, this guy's got some serious shit.

(One more BD quote at twitter.com/bobmungovan)


Since it's too long for twitter...

"Your shower shoes have fungus on them. You'll never make it to the bigs with fungus on your shower shoes. Think classy, you'll be classy. If you win 20 in the show, you can let the fungus grow back and the press'll think you're colorful. Until you win 20 in the show, however, it means you are a slob."


-Crash Davis, Bull Durham

(I'm a little slobby today.)

Drifting...(aka a lame-ass "I don't post very much lately" post.)

Not keeping up as much with the ol' LJ these days. I have been reassigned at work, and my new duties don't leave me with as much "networking/professional reading" time.

High(low)lights of recent days: my ATM card was duped, my Grandma fell and broke her hip*, (as above) my job duties were changed.

I even started a facebook acct to catch up with HS peeps (to start, I had a real nostalgia kick a few weeks back) and referred them here to learn more. Go figure.

*Previous post referred to this. She's in physical rehab now. So, it's going well on one level, but OTOH, she had remained almost completely independent until now (into her 80s), and it may never be that way again.

Work all night, sleep all day...

I spent yesterday off the grid because I had my worst migraine ever on Monday night. Migraines are either a) mostly new to my “repertoire” or b) some percentage of headaches I considered to be sinus headaches were really migraines in the past.


At any rate, I slept the evening away Monday night and then slept restlessly the rest of the night. So, I skipped work and spent most of yesterday morning asleep. After a bit of video gaming I helped clean house for our 16th parenthood anniversary. Er, my son’s 16th birthday. Had the in-laws and our close friends over for a pretty low-key deal. My son scored enough cash to squeeze out a bare bones Dell PC. It beats WoW’s recommended requirements, which was his primary concern.


Nonetheless, I’m back in the saddle, and more rested than I’ve felt in awhile.
