Play ball!

Thanks to the VP of the company I work for, I got to see the Cubs home opener at urine-soaked beautiful Wrigley Field -- the only time I've gone to that park when the White Sox weren't playing there, despite my proximity to the joint -- and was pleased to see the Baby Bears get absolutely humiliated. Yay!

This afternoon, with scoresheet in hand, I will be in the bleachers at White Sox park to see my beloved Good Guys play the KC Royals, and I'm hoping they can deliver a win and make it a double (Sox win, Cubs lose). That would be the best Opening Day(s) ever!

God, I've missed baseball.

Fun with interests

So yesterday and today, for no reason in particular, I added a bunch of retarded stuff to my boring LJ "interests" lists. I was, as I often am, surprised at which ones were shared with other users, and which ones weren't. To wit:

INTERESTS I WAS MILDLY SURPRISED TO FIND OTHER PEOPLE SHARE

"armpits", "crazy eyebrows", "laffs", "kidding on the square", "nobrow", "Prez"

INTERESTS I WAS EXTREMELY SURPRISED TO FIND OTHER PEOPLE SHARE

"hillbilly culture", "no gods no masters", "road trips to nowhere", "shaking the crime stick", "that guy!", "Tom Atkins"

INTERESTS I WAS MILDLY SURPRISED TO FIND NO ONE ELSE SHARES

"Gotham City Neighborhoodies", "metalface", "sad little clowns"

INTERESTS I WAS EXTREMELY SURPRISED TO FIND NO ONE ELSE SHARES

"dating Uma Thurman", "naked lay-teez", "overusing the word 'retarded'", "telepathic apes"

INTERESTS I WAS IN NO WAY SURPRISED TO FIND NO ONE ELSE SHARES

"doll ideology", "emulating Henry Darger", "masturpation", "songs about mules", "the Feast of Shame"
