We’re in Gary, IN for the RailCats game. It was Peter’s idea and we just decided to take action and make it happen. Which is also why I have the Prius Always a good excuse to drive. It was a great game: RailCats 6 — Fargo-Moorehead 4.

Cars: Toyota Prius

Finally I get a car from Avis I actually requested. It’s part of their Cool Car Collection, though I think this Toyota Prius should be the only fleet car. The previous driver averaged 47mpg, which is pretty good. Last time I was in one I was very distracted by the center console. And it took me 5 minutes to figure out how to work the car.

A couple weeks ago Gary approved getting a Wii and it’s finally here and set up. We were trying to get it connected to a projector butt wouldn’t work. In our excitement it ended up on the big screen. it’s fun looking at least

Kids in the Hall is E’s final birthday surprise. They are a little late but I am still excited to see them. It’s been ages since i’ve even seen them on TV. Might have to find them on YouTube.


A seat on the Blue Line

I had all intentions of riding in today. The weather is a bit dodgy but I could ride and beat out the sprinkles. But that wasn’t an option because I had a flat. And because I doddled, I didn’t have time to fix it. Oh well. There’s always tomorrow.

It’s been only a few days since I’ve seen Mr P so it should be a smooth night. I’m starving though and decided to indulge on a McD’s doubled cheeseburger and a small fry. i’m hiding out in the bus shelter so as not to attract the ire of the locals.

On our way to the old place there’s a slew of new characters. Specifically one with more hate Bush stuff. Seems to me that, in six months, it won’t make much of a matter.

The long way in

On the 56 despite the gorgeous weather. The upstairs neighbors assumed no one else lives on the planet and proceeded to have a get together at 330a, likely when they were done with bar. So I got NO sleep last night and wonder is this is the foible of the week. Good Fridays.

Waiting for Mahler 1

Intermission is nearly over and it’s time for Mahler’s first. Nearly every instrument is represented and there’s an even larger number of percussion instruments. This is going to be a blast… I can just feel it. Paul sitting next to me agrees.
