Take me out to the ball game…

Thought I should root for the home team since we live here and all….

By the way, isn’t it SO awesome that they now have pink sports wear for the ladies. I look SO much better in pink than those stupid team colors they come up with. Seriously. I’m not kidding about that.

Anyway, if you want to hear my logic (yes, you do!) about who is going to win the game, or series, or whatever, then I’ll tell you the Ray’s are going to win. And, I’m not just saying it because I live in Tampa. It’s a scientific calculation I’ve used it in the past- and it works!! Seriously! Ok, so here we go…The Ray’s are going to win because…

The Phillies mascot is the “Phanatic.” He’s a a “fat furry green creature with a cylindrical beak containing a tongue that sticks out”. The Phillies themselves describe him as “overweight with clumsy feet and an extra-long beak that has curled up tongue. He has a gawking neck and a slight case of body odor.” He also rides along in an ATV, which as you all know is against baseball regulation.

On the other hand, there is Tampa’s mascot “Raymond.” He’s a 6’6″ furry blue creature, called a seadog, wearing a large pair of sneakers and a backwards baseball cap. There you have it. He has sneakers on AND a baseball cap. People, those shoe’s are made for running. If anyone knows shoes, I do. He’s ready to play ball!! Did I mention Raymond was awarded an honorable mention in the GameOps.com Best Mascot contest for 2006?

Isn’t he adorable??

Yeah, yeah. I know I’ve been slacking on my blog since August, but seriously I’m not that interesting. I’ll prove it!

1) This summer all I did was sleep in, find new curtains and blinds for the living room, put some cute pics and valances in the kitchen/dining room, made two flower arrangements that I added to the dining room table and guest bedroom, reorganized some closets, and re-arranged furniture. Yawn!

2) Oh, yeah! We did take a mini vacation to Normal, IL for Jenny’s shower- that was fun!

3) Since school started I have began waking up around 5 am again, which means that right now it’s past my bedtime. Yawn and yawn….

4) Um, there are those pesky little fertility drugs that I’m on that make me a *real joy* to be around. Sorry, honeybunches! Remember that earlier post about our goals for the year? Well, apparently #5 isn’t as easy as we thought it would be.

5) Did I mention that in my spare time I’m either studying for the two classes that I’m in or grading papers for the school I teach at?? ok, ok….I admit, my job is not that bad. Tomorrow we are making breakfast wraps and kool-aid play dough.

I’m Booooorrrriiiinnnggg!! Or am I?

It suddenly hass occurred to me that if I’m getting messages from various people to update my blog I must have a bigger audience than I realized. I feel like Britney Spears! Thanks, Marisa! You made my day! 😉

If you really want to stroke my ego, you can click the link to follow my ( I mean “ours”- whatever!) blog over on the right side of this page. That would make me feel really good about myself!

Anyone else feeling a lot of pressure to vote in this “historical election?” I am! I want to do my civic duty and cast my vote, but honestly I don’t have the attention span to watch the debates or keep up with the financial war and the Iraq crises or whatever. So, I found this site and now I’m feeling a little more confident about my vote! If anything it helped me determine which candidate I am more in agreement with in regards to my values, etc. This site is a savior for me. I mean otherwise, I’d be saying things like this.

Pros and Cons of living in Florida…

Pros and Cons of living in Florida…



This is our 60+ year old neighbor who’s been parading like this in his front yard for the past 2 hours.

Ok, can you believe I snuck a picture of him? Can I get arrested for that? Is that like invasion of privacy or something? I mean, seems like he should be arrested for indecent exposure! Don’t you think??
