My Friday

Today is my Friday, since I'm taking tomorrow off to go to opening day at the ballpark formerly known as Comiskey Park, currently known as U.S. Cellular Field, and still known as White Sox Park. I'm hoping that the Good Guys don't come in 3 games in the whole, but this early on, I really don't care: I'm so happy that baseball has begun that even two frustrating losses can't take the shine off it. Tailgating, keeping score, watching the whole beautiful thing unfold: baseball is one of those very few things I love unreservedly.

I had a dream last night that my pal James had a big bone on for one of my LiveJournal friends and kept trying to get me to hook him up with her. This struck me as odd, even when I was asleep (it's my curse that even when I'm unconscious, I'm picking apart the implausible aspects of plots), because:

1. James doesn't read my LiveJournal, as far as I know
2. James just got engaged and isn't likely to be scouting around
3. I have never actually met this person.

But, it was an entertaining dream in a sort of barbaric-sitcom way, and it almost ended in a fistfight, so you know that ain't bad.

I finally finished a chapter in my stupid novel last night that has been kicking my ass for weeks. I'm still not sure it doesn't suck, but I hate it less now than I did when I was stuck in the middle of it. I was dreading the next (now current) chapter as well, but as it turns out, just when I started writing it, I thought up a new angle for the action that's going to pay off almost immediately, at least in terms of my enthuiasm for writing it. Sometimes my brain does me a favor.
