What a weekend. All sorts of interesting and entertaining things, and I need to post fast then go to bed. So bear with me if it reads like it was written in a hurry…
Let’s see. Oh yes, I went to Alabama last week. It was a bit like stepping back into the middle of the civil war. At least the food is good.
The trip was a success…. I think. I was never exactly sure what the point was, but I pretended and no one seemed to notice. I discovered that NyQuil is the best air sickness medicine I’ve ever used.
Saturday was Abby’s graduation from Puppy School. Next week, she and Amber start their advanced training class together, which should be quite fun. Abby, of course, was the valedictorian of the class… the only pup that was able to resist the temptation of hot dog chunks on the floor. She also did proper loose-leash walking for the first time ever, and just happened to do it during her final examination.
Saturday night was the Norah Jones concert. The crowd was about 10,000 people, and my seat was on the eight row, perfectly positioned so I could look her right in the face while she played the piano. Couldn’t have been better. And yes, I am going to be marrying her ASAP. She’s my age, and extremely beautiful and talented, so I think she’ll do nicely. One of the members of my group got Norah’s ACTUAL water bottle from next to the piano. It was be-a-utiful. He is going to be taking the water and using her saliva to create a clone.
He and I had flowers that we were waving at Norah. The backup singer saw me and thought I was waving it at her. It’s hard to tell, but I think she was giving me the skank eye, inviting me back to the bus. But I decided to opt out, since she was… not Norah. I’m saving myself for Ms. NJ.
And of course, the Red Sox won, so the evening was rounded out very well. Today was the Chiefs-Falcons game. I don’t want to gloat too much, but we did set an all time NFL record for the most rushing touchdowns in a game…8. And in case you didn’t see the score, we spanked them like naughty little girls. Final score: 58-10. And 7 of their 10 points were scored by their punt returner, not by the ever boastful, loud-mouthed, arrogant, jackass, Michael Vick. I’m just saying.
That’s the offense I remember from last season. The defense is much better than last year, but the offense up until today has been off kilter.
Anyway, at the moment, the Sox are winning 6-1, so it looks like we might have a clean sweep for the weekend. Too bad I have to go to work tomorrow.
That’s all for today. Sorry it’s one of those “today I did” entries… I try to avoid them whenever possible.
