Random thoughts for Monday....

So as of last night, Massachusetts has received an average of something like 22.25 inches of rain between the months of May and June. You know what the average is? 6.75 inches. Clearly, we've shattered that record! And guess what the weather report is for the next 6 days.....rain. Well, at least it's warm.

I'm so very dissapointed with Major League Baseball and it's stance on domestic abuse. Clearly, after this weekend's escapade in Boston with Phillies' pitcher Brett Myers there is a tolerance level that I wouldn't have expected. Just another circumstance where it shows that "celebrities" and such types are treated differently than the "average joe". I tend to think that if any man, beat his wife in public and was a high profile representative of his company - his company would have him take some "time off" until things cooled down. Maybe not terminate him, but definitely some "time off". Not the MLB my friends. Wonder how guys like Gabe Kapler and Curt Shilling for example, feel about this one....?

While I've been really disgusted with the Dixie Chicks for a variety of reasons, and thought their last album was lousy - their latest one is excellent. Well worth picking up if you haven't already. Which reminds me that I can't believe I haven't picked up Christina's new one. Her new single "Aint no other man" has really grown on me. (WAIT.....there's a glimmer of sun breaking through the clouds!!!! Someone, take a picture!!! Ohhh. It's gone... )

I've not been very good about working out. Partly because I've been so busy...and partly because I've been so lazy! But I think....tonight I'm going to show up at class. Sensai will probably yell at me, or have a heart attack in shock and surprise, hahaha. But while I'm still feeling good about how I appear - I don't feel as good as I do when I work out. And for me, I'm all about feeling good. I've been too bored to run on the treadmill at home. So, back to class I'm hoping to go. I guess it will all depend on how I feel come 7:00 this evening!

I've noticed that alot of blogging regulars (myself included) have slowed down a little on posting, more than likely due to the summer. Not such a bad thing I think! We spend so much time (at least here in the North East) being cold and dark, it's fun to be out in the fresh air and doing things - rather than sitting in front of the computer.

Speaking of which - someone I work with just asked if I knew anyone who could use two tickets for todays Red Sox game...it was rained out yesterday. Normally I'd jump at the chance, but unfortunately I have too much to do today.

Damn that work - it always gets in the way!

Rebecca, I do love you. But, your taste in music sucks. And, the BoSox are the bane of our existence down here this year.

I wish I could have taken you up on the offer. Same thing w/ work here. Sigh..

And the game was another good one. Papi does it again.

I was surprised they let Meyers pitch as well.

I'd bet the wet weather has something to do with the dampness of your spirit as well. I know out here in CA, we're very solar-dependent.

Yes, I've definitely slowed way down on blogging. I'm too busy at work and it's just not the priority when I'm at home.

Doesn't Christina have the most fabulous voice?!

We've had--for here--quite hot weather into the 90's INSTEAD of our usual rain. Even though June is not our rainiest month, it's not usually rainfree--and I am surprised to find I miss it!
