Blogger Blues and Other Things

I'm tired.

snagged this from cornerofmadness

1. Anyone who looks at this entry please post this meme and your current wallpaper at your journal.
2. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper.
3. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on.





Why: Dale is one of my top three favorite singers in the history of music, he's a good and dear friend, and he's mighty easy on the eyes, too.



I was going to blog something useful on my MySpace blog, but my brain is currently somewhat dead. I haven't been to the gym in almost THREE WEEKS -- between overtime, being sick, and this morning's "time of the month" fatigue, ARGH. I will go tomorrow, damn it. I did, however, manage to maintain the weight loss I've already gotten over the overeating weekend, especially considering all-you-can-eat Asian buffet and blueberry cobbler (I tried to make it somewhat lower in sugar than the recipe called for, largely because these are REALLY good blueberries).

Yesterday I checked out Craig's List for curio cabinets and found what looked like a very nice one for under a hundred bucks; I called on it and she was willing to come down to $80, so I said I'd take it. We drove out to forever-and-away West Phoenix (80th Avenue) and got it -- turned out to be somewhat cheaper made than presented, but now it's installed and filled with our stemware, and it LOOKS lovely! All the liquor is now in the bar instead of on the floor. Woot! (I tuned in the Diamondbacks game around 3 or so. It was the bottom of the 6th. The score was 6-0. At the bottom of the 9th, the score was 6-1. Then suddenly.... Extra innings. A LOT of them. We finally won, 9-6, in the 18th Inning.)

New curio:









I have had a low-grade sinus headache all day long even with Allegra-D both in the morning and in the afternoon, and Advil isn't doing very much to combat it.

I will go to bed early tonight. I will work out tomorrow. These things must happen.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

I'd have to take a screen shot to do this meme, since I didn't keep the original photo I use for my background.

I have to wonder what the record number of innings is for a baseball game, because that has to be getting up there.

I was going to post the original picture, but then realized it doesn't have the icons, so did a screen shot and saved it properly.

I'll have to Google it and find out...

According to Wiki, it was 33 innings in a Triple-A game between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings. It was actually called for a break and they came back a few days later to finish... (It was very popular because that was when the major leagues were on strike.)

This site has records for all the Major League games, including the longest by TIME and the longest by INNINGS (25 for the American League and 23 for the National League). So we didn't break a record for any leagues. But it WAS very long! *g*

Thirty-three innings?! I wonder how many they ran in the first part of the game and how many the next. Jeebus!
