  1. I don't know, but if someone figures it out, maybe Andre Braugher could do it, too. So disappointing.

    Theatre Talk: In Our Own Little Corner

    We have tickets for August 6th (I think). We also have tickets to Hadestown on the 8th. We may see Tootsie on the 5th. We'll see how it goes.

    They'd been using the shift all day. Don't blame that. I sat through a no-hitter in my ballpark against my team back in 1991 (Wilson Alvarez for the White Sox) and I cheered. So in a totally selfish move today, I talked about it because I wasn't in the mood. So there! I will say that when we got the first 2 guys on, I mentioned that a triple play would be fun. That would have made me laugh. The guy next to us was really pissed off. Too bad...

    Sorry, I had to say it out loud because I'm here and I didn't want that to happen. So. .yay.

    I named my first car (a 1970 brown Dodge Dart) Velma (as in Velma Kelly from Chicago) and my second car (a 1985 Civic hatchback) Zach (from A Chorus Line) and all my friends called both cars by name. My next 2 cars (both Accords) had names (Big Jule and Roxie) but I never called them by name. This car (2013 Accord) is Miss Adelaide. I sometimes refer to her by name, sometimes not. No one else does. I hope this is my last car. She's a great car.

    Mazel tov @GHScorpiosRule!!! It's a beautiful car. Are you someone who names her cars (or is that just something weird I do...)? As my Bubbie used to say "use it in good health!!"

    I donated a car to Goodwill about 30 years ago. If you could drive it in, they would take it and allegedly use it to teach people to be mechanics. I think if I were to do it now, I'd probably go with the local NPR station. They'll come and pick it up. Or, there's a charity around here called Vehicles for Change. They supposedly fix up the car and give it to a family that needs transportation. I haven't looked deeply into them, but if I had a car to donate, I'd research.

    That's why my seats are always in the shade. And why I appreciate the fact that all (or most anyway) ballparks face the same directions - I always know what seats are in the shade even if I haven't been there yet.

    Or sometimes, like today, I was yelling "I have dinner reservations in an hour and a half, so take your time!!!" Fortunately, the restaurant opened at 4:30, so I could change my 5:15 res and have a lovely dinner. At least something was lovely today. (although at least it wasn't 26-0)

    My rule is that I start yelling "I have dinner reservations" when it seems like the game will run into said dinner reservation. Usually that works 😉 If it doesn't, depending on where we're going, we either leave, or call and push the reservation back...

    Told you it would be 10 hours. Well, it felt like 10 hours...

    Ah, Yankees-Saux and their always fabulous 10 hour/9 inning games. I missed the pre-game - did they say why both teams are wearing the home whites? For some reason, this is annoying me. Almost more than the 10 hour game.
