So we started off the morning walking to the store, the market, then making a breakfast and watching Cubs vs Sox – which was a total snooze-fest UNTIL john turned on the World Baseball Classic. OH BOY! seriously, this is the one of the only times i’ve ever appreciated the skill, talent, sportsmanship, athletic ability and actual excitement that this game has. not to mention the extremly fun time the fans are having in the stands – music, dancing– i wanna salsa!
it took watching Dominican Republic vs Cuba (and we saw another game the other day too) combined with catching a Red Sox game at Fenway in 2003, to realize that just maybe… MAYBE… there could be more to baseball that i just haven’t discovered yet — it’s worth a shot. the final on monday (winner of Korea/Japan vs winner of Domincan Rep/Cuba) be sure to catch it on sportsnet at 6pm 🙂
they cut down trees outside my house the other day. poor john was planning on doing a podcast but i guess there was a lil background noise :p but… now when i sit at my puter i can see the street and the alley and yeah… so not much left for tree cover… who wants to see us walk around the apartment all day buck naked anyway eh? bah.
so we’re going to have to make do with being in the city – not that it’s a bad city, actually it’s supposed to be a gorgeous weekend. lots and lots going on around town. events, st. patrick’s day things, celtic fest things, new movies out and YAY next week the kiddies are all back in school!
this day also reminds me of being in high school, livia did that irish dancing (before the whole riverdance craze) and often competed and often won medals. she would bring them in on st. patrick’s day and we’d wear her medals as necklaces and pins. i think i still have some, somewhere, kicking around my parents’ house.
(and yeah, i dont own any green shirts, i had to improvise…. :p)
the trip last night was somewhat successful. i tried on a pair of jeans, they were wicked, i just wanted a different size. i go to the rack, grab the size i want and take off. i get them home and they’re “SKINNY” cut not boot – wtf?! Skinny is the new tapered? EW! So dissapointing. And, I won’t listen to John anymore – he said to get him “small” t-shirts. So i bought small even though they looked TOO small and yeah… too small… When my sister gets back from Wales we’ll have to head down again so I can return those items. other than that – it was REALLY fun. I came home with a Cinnabon hangover though.
While in the toy department of Target getting Ethan his bday present (although Lexi’s bday comes first, we couldn’t pass up this thing we saw that was just TOO perfect)… anyhoo Laura comes across a lil hand-held 20 Questions game. So she starts playing… the lil device is asking her questions … “is it a household object”, “is it an animate object”… after about 25 questions it says ” I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE!…. ARE YOU A BRASIERE?” …um wrong… after 3 more questions “ARE YOU A SANDWICH?” … no… we were a kitty. stupid game.
Isaac Hayes has quit South Park because it satired scientology. Hmm okay so mocking judaism, christianity, islam, etc etc is okay but that’s where he draws the line? interesting. to each his own… but don’t you think there’s something wrong if you’re going to say if you insult what i believe i quit, but i was okay with you mocking others for years prior to this?
i found this anti-scientology website while “researching” for this post. i’m sure you could make fun of anyone’s religion if you tried (unfortunately), but be wary of the consequences. it’s all about tolerance and respect people. EDIT: I’ll toss in the official site as well for anyone wanting more info (just to be fair, i won’t just post the link to the anti-site :p)
on a completely different note… i’m heading down to america with Lolo and my mumma tonight. gotta do the usual ‘paying of the VS bill’ and seeking out of shoe-deals at mervyns and famous footwear. i only have my paper license since i’m getting my name changed and all… so i have to cart around my passport – with my pic from 2001 (where i have bright blond hair that’s above shoulder-length and i look like a 16 year old crack-whore…nice). hopefully all goes well, the trip will be successful and i’ll come back with lots of goodies. remind me to look for a paper towel holder at target.
