Friday Rambles…24 September 2010

UPDATE:
I’ve had a few (okay…MANY) Sierra Nevada’s…the boys won one in Denver…I got to see ANDRES TORRES and BRIAN WILSON! Neighbors having a nice bbq…the week is ending nicely. Yes, indeed! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! Andres IS BACK!!!!! I missed you SO MUCH!

It’s Friday…usually I’d say YAY! at this moment…but I’m still in a funk, I have a headache, it’s going to be 94F this weekend, there are loud and annoying motorcycles in town…the list goes on.

I’d normally say…let’s go down to Genoa and walk around the 90th Annual Candy Dance Craft Fair…but like I said above, it’s going to be HOT! Even up against the Sierra…it’s HOT!

~~~~~~~

Can’t walk downtown because of loud, annoying HD motorcycles…and people roaming around in clothes that, quite frankly, they have no business wearing! Makes me queasy. Some people really shouldn’t wear leather.

~~~~~~~

Can’t go up to Virginia City…well…because Harley’s go up there too, where the noise echos very loudly.

~~~~~~~

If it’s hot down here…it will definitely be hotter over in Placerville, so Apple Hill is out of the question.

~~~~~~~

The Giants are in Denver, so can’t go to a baseball game.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Speaking of the Giants…COME ON GUYS! 13-0?! A few of us would like you to distribute the runs a bit more evenly over all your games. Feast or Famine! OY! The heartburn! And when you have blowout games like that I don’t get to see Brian close a game! The humanity of it all! I really need a Wilson fix once in a while!

ps: hurry up and heal, Andres! Miss you out in center field!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Maybe Pyramid Lake! San Francisco is a little too far away (especially with no ball game to go to)…and I do need a body of water that’s bigger than the Truckee River and the bath tub.

~~~~~

I do need to finish a few quilts…but have been uninspired.

~~~~~~

I have cat “mentoring’ at the Nevada Humane Society next Tuesday…learn the ins and outs of what to do and not to do while volunteering with the cats. Maybe I’ll go volunteer this weekend and walk some dogs…I need the exercise and I’m sure they’d like to stretch their legs too.

~~~~~~

I finished reading The Colorado Kid earlier this week…not that great of a book. I think I expected more. I have absolutely no clue how they got SyFy’s Haven tied into Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid. Stephen King even wrote that you’ll either love or hate the book…well, I fall into the dislike range. Glad I read it, but won’t stay on my shelf.

~~~~~~

This is Jack…he likes Jose, Bushmills Black, Jameson, and Tullamore Dew. 🙂 He’s from California…made by Justin Moeller of JM Ceramics. He makes me smile…even without the Bushmills.

Here’s to me snapping out of my funk! Talk to you next week.

Purely Fluff Post…Poll for my new SF Giants Jersey

11 Sept 2010 Update Note: After talking with a MLB mom (co-worker is mom to a pitcher on the Brewers) she suggested buying a team shirt not one with a name. Too many trades. 🙂 So last night I bought a black & orange hooded pullover sweathirt. But…me thinks I’ll still get a Buster & Wilson t-shirt for next summer’s games at Pac Bell (errr…AT&T) Park. Will have to get an orange one for Friday games too!

Geez…already has cat fur all over it!

As I said above…this is a purely fluff post.

Am taking a poll on which jersey I should get! I’ve a $100 AT&T card that is burning a hole in my wallet (I bundled my wireless and internet together not too long ago)…and I’ve decided to get myself a San Francisco Giants home jersey.

San Francisco Giants Home Jersey

I’ve narrowed it down to three players…which one do you think I should get?

#1 Brian Wilson, Closer.

Brian Wilson

I love this guy! Brian has taken the place in my heart that Robb Nen held for many years. The thrill of the ninth inning and holding a lead. Hell, sometimes I would turn the game on in the last inning (or the Nenth Inning) just to see if Robb was closing! 🙂 Brian is exciting to watch…and terrifying…strike out, walk, strike out, PLEASE LORD STRIKE OUT!

#2 Buster Posey , Catcher.

Buster, Buster, Buster! What can I say? I…ummm…have a thing about catchers. Catcher thighs…they do me in every time. Started when I was a kid…Steve Yeager, Johnny Bench, Mike Piazza, Thurman Munson, Damon Berryhill.

And can we say ROOKIE OF THE YEAR???!!!! AMEN! Excellent catcher, great arm, great leader! And he’s only 23 years old. May you have a long and wonderful career kiddo!

#3 Pat Burrell, Outfielder.

I told my friend, April, that this one is just pure unadultarated lust. I can not lie. Luckily, Pat is a great outfielder…can’t run fast around the bases, but if he hits home runs and doubles it really doesn’t matter. 🙂

Honorable mentions are Freddy Sanchez (infielder) and Andres Torres (outfielder). Both are equally great fielders and hitters, am very glad we have them! I may have to move them up to #4 & #5!!!
