Up The Water Spout

My Mind in Megabites

Love that dirty water…

…oh, Boston you’re my home!!!

The Red Sox clinched the ALCS against the Cleveland Indians!!!!

I love Jacoby Ellsbury, or as I like to call him, Kid Fresh. He’s my new favorite…more to follow on that tomorrow.

If somehow you haven’t seen this yet, here’s the oh-so-entertaining Jonathan Papelbon dance from the division win a few games ago:

Goodnight and Good Luck Red Sox!


Game 7, I don’t want to jinx it, but…

Red Sox Nation Baby!

I don’t want to jinx anything by writing about the Sox before the game tonight, but I can hardly believe it. We’ve made it to Game 7 in the series against the Cleveland Indians. It’s not that the Sox are under qualified or couldn’t have pulled it off. It’s that we weren’t scoring enough runs when the series was in Cleveland, nor was our pitching up to par. Daisuke Matsuzaka let us down big time in Game 3. We paid roughly $51 million just to negotiate with him in Japan. We paid another $50 million to sign him to the Sox. Long story short – he hasn’t lived up the hype or his price tag and HE IS PITCHING TONIGHT! Yowzas!

Game 6 Recap:
I can’t believe how phenomenal J.D. Drew was last night!! His numbers this season have been straight up awful. Last night all of Fenway and Red Sox Nation held their breath as Drew stepped to the plate with 3 men on base and 2 outs. We were all thinking the same thing based on his record this season, he was going to strike out, or hit a grounder to first base for an easy out. As the balls on his pitching count contnued to rise we all thought he might actually walk. If he can just not be stupid for two tenths of a second, he might just walk and we’ll still score a run. I kept thinking, “C’mon J.D., a walk’s as good as a run.” Beside me, Michael was already punching the air with frustration awaiting Drew’s next folly. Before I could absorb that, I heard the crack of the bat. I looked at the screen and OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! HE HIT A HOMERUN! OMG! WAIT, HE HIT A GRANDSLAM!!!!!! OMG!

Drew sure picked the best time moment in his career to pull a homerun out of his ass. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you J.D. Drew.

Drew plays as an outfielder on the Red Sox and wears number 7. Maybe that lucky number will hold us through tonight’s Game 7! One can only hope. Although, we’re the Red Sox, we don’t need luck (but it doesn’t hurt either.)

Anyway, it’s just about game time, so off I go. And if you’re a New Englander or Red Sox fan of random descent, you better be off now too.

P.S. Happy 55th Birthday Mom! 🙂

Spooky Time Blues are OVER!

It’s October 20th. That means just 11 more days until Halloween!!

I am really excited about celebrating all the ghosts, ghouls, and goblins this year. Michael’s colleague is hostessing a party on Saturday the 27th. Since no other offers are on the table, we’ll probably head there. I do wish there was something more fun going on though.

We’ve been hemming and hawing for the past few weeks about what our costumes should be. We really wanted to do the whole matching couple costume thing this Halloween.

Some options included:
– a pregnant nun and a rabbi (Michael’s Jewish)
– Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and either the tin man, scarecrow, cowardly lion, a munchkin or the great and powerful oz himself.
– a female matador and a bull
– Shaggy and Velma from Scooby Doo
– Hansel and Gretel

So as the days passed us by, more and more costumes were being sold out. When we finally decided on our costumes, they were unavailable in every size but XS, which doesn’t fit either of us! So we were left with the option of picking a different costume all together or Google our asses off until we found what we were looking for…

45 minutes and 8,000 Google searches later, we found the costumes we were looking for!!!!!!! Finally, our spooky time blues of being unable to pick or find a freakin’ costume were over! 🙂

So without further ado, I will fulfill your curiosity and show you the costumes we decided upon:

Oh yea, you can click on the image to get a closer look.
So there ya have it. It’s probably, well no, it’s without a doubt the sexiest Halloween costume I’ve ever chosen to wear. I think it’s a cute couple’s costume idea for us. I can’t wait to rock the crazy German beer girl costume! Check back for post-Halloween party pictures.

Again, For The First Time

So here I am again, writing my first blog post.

I am writing in the blogosphere for the first time since roughly 2003. My first blog was on LiveJournal. Admittedly, I didn’t use it all that often. I would probably be stoned like a leper by today’s big bloggers for the staggering time lapses between posts back then.

This time around, I want to make the most of this whole blogging phenomenon. Though I realize it’s not a fresh-out-the-gate idea, it has become HUGE in the past couple of years. I mean it’s crazy. Blogs are even used in the world of PR (that’s public relations for you lay folk). What I mean is, PR pros rely on them daily as sources of valuable, credible, current information just as they would CNN or the New York Times. That speaks volumes about how far-reaching and well-respected bloggers and their ideas have come.

So now it’s my turn. I’m going to attempt to post on a daily basis. I want to share my little “isms”, thoughts, photos, videos, highs, lows, experiences, and discoveries from life on and offline with whoever is willing to read it.

So here goes…

P.S. Happy 27th Birthday Michael!! xoxo
