I’ve cleared my calendar for no other reason than I think it will do me some good to pack this weekend full of Paulie Time. My head has been completely out of whack this week and I need to figure out what the hell I am doing with my life.
Things I Won’t Be Doing This Weekend
– seeing “Elliott, A Soldier’s Fugue” on the Hertz Stage of the Alliance Theater
– making any commitments to be anywhere with anyone
– trying to figure out why women continually find me “unsuitable”
– answering my phone (most likely)
Things I Will Be Doing This Weekend
– drinking beer (just like every other weekend)
– watching Season 1 of The Office on DVD
– working on this blog
– grilling out on my bbq
No Ticky, No Ballgame
It didn’t rain as expected, but it didn’t matter because my plans to see the Mets / Braves game fell through last night. Fearing either driving rain or a chilly evening I decided not to go down to the stadium alone. But that’s not to say that I didn’t have a plan “B”…
(Now that I read that Mets’ pitcher Pedro Martinez is done for the remainder of the year due to a torn calf muscle it appears that they might uphold the Braves fine tradition of having an incredible season only to be knocked out in the first round of the playoffs.)
It was a lot like the old days of trivia — Meet The Hashers was playing, Jim (the old Taco Mac host) has apparently returned from a 2+ year stint in Charlotte, we were drinking beer (although I had none), and at the end of the first half we were not in first place.
I had a good laugh early on when the first sports question was “In which sport does a player have to either bounce or touch the ball to the ground every eleven yards?” Having just signed up for Australian Rules Football and scanning its rules I knew the answer immediately. Unfortunately, the question wound up being a multiple-choice question so most other teams answered it correctly as well.
Oh, Meet The Hashers went on to win first place. Just like the old days indeed…

This is where I was, I am no longer there. I already miss the four-minute “commute” that I had from the hotel room to the hotel lobby.
However, I am very disappointed that CBS abandoned its Great Social Experiment so soon into the season. Sure it was a load of crap, but at least it was different.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – looking forward to some “down” time
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing The New Pornographers — “Use It”
Website Of The Day – I’m considering a road trip, to where I am uncertain. Regardless of where I go I’ll be sure to check out American Byways: National Scenic Byways to see what I shouldn’t miss.
Exercise (b)Log – hah, this is really sucking
