So far, the Friday Night Blogging (sponsored by Tintara 2003 Shiraz) has been off to a rocky star.
The delicious Tintara fruit of the vine usually lasts until 10 p.m. CST or so. Thanks to the rocky start for the Boston Red Sox and Jon Lester, the vino is cashed at the end of the 2nd inning (8 p.m. or so).
So onto the Guinness.
When the score was 5-1 in that faithful 2nd inning, I conceded the AL East to a friend earlier this evening.
But, forgetting that Sidney Ponson is still a pitcher for the Yankees, it may have been a wee bit tad kinda sorta premature.
The boys rallied, and now it's 5-4 going into the 3rd. But Jon Lester ought to throw about 62 pitches this inning and be done with it.
Meanwhile, I've switched with high-end shiraz to Guinness. Which is sorta like putting diesel into an electric car.
The plan for the evening is still heading to the grocery store for more carrots (I cashed a two pound bag today. Today. Two pounds. Carrots. I fear I'm going to wake up orange. And with really, really good eyesight. And a cotton tail.).
Of course, I still need to hit the Metro Market for "singles night." How many "metrosexuals" will there be at the "Metro Market." And will it be compulsory for me to use quotes - or those annoying finger quotes when denoting quotation marks - when I refer to either "metrosexuals" or the "Metro Market."
I can't technically leave until I get some work done, which is neither here nor there, but regardless...I'm going to be on the internet tonight.
Did I mention the Guinness. It's glorious.
Gaelic for "genius."
And you can use that one with your friends. So long as you also use the finger quotation marks for "genius."
Your humble and obedient servant,
