Ripped From the Headlines

Or from Oblivion:

"You know its always a good idea to donate your time to a good cause. Or at least it seemed like a good idea six months ago. But when the actual time comes ... you think ... why did I agree in the first place? Oh yea ... the whole good cause part. So you suck it up and do it."

So, I'm supposed to be helping out with setting up this yard sale that will end up benefiting a local scholarship fund. But, the group that's sponsoring the sale? I don't belong to it, haven't for years and now I only know one person that does belong to it. I told that one person I'd be there and I will be. But not for too long...it's not like they need me there, I'm only going to see what they have for books and such. That whole 'why did I agree in the first place'? Has nothing to do with the good cause, more like hanging out with a friend and chatting and I don't want some lady from some group I don't belong to casting out well deserved evil glances behind my back because I'm doing literally nothing to help and am sort of just in the way. So, in short - I'm not sucking it up and SP is clearly a more responsible adult than I am.

Hey, the Sox pulled another one out of their collective asses last night, eh? Well, eh? to Amy and whomever else might have watched. Probably just Amy. But that is oh-kay. But just so y'know...there will be no room on the bandwagon come October. Not sure about the whole Hit and Watch thing that Manny has been doing more and more of. Dude - just start jogging, it won't kill you.

The Sox are playing here sometime in September... You know I had so much fun the last time we went to a sox game here, listening to all the funny accents coming from the crowd. Hey I just realized while talking with you on the phone you don't have that "funny" accent. hahaha.

Hope you're having a great day!

Unfortunately, I didn't watch, but not because I didn't want to, just because it wasn't broadcast here. Go figure. Dumb market that I'm in. As if anyone wants to watch the Phillies (and suffice it to say, we could see nearly every Yankees game. Yuck. Was sad to see them cream the Mariners again. Even though my cuz isn't on the M's anymore, it still hurts.)

But I can't really yell at bandwagoneers, as I jumped the minute they won the series against the yankees in '04. Oh what joy that series was. Loved it. Every single minute. But I've been a fan since.

Oh and Manny, dear lord. I'm going to have a laughing fit the day it doesn't go over the fence and he's still standing there gawking at the ball.
