Watching the game, drinking a pepsi

Blogging has been an spotty part of my life for the last year. I think about writing, but I have a boring life. I'm not quite sure who wants to read about work tilt, and the amount of poker I play is negligible most weeks. I'm not the whiny type, and I don't want to come off as being that here.

I figured that tonight is a great night to blog. Just got home from errands after work. I'd stopped home, grabbed the dogs, and headed out along with Brian to do a little shopping. Picked up dog food, the makings of pastrami specials for tomorrow's lunch, and a few white rodents for the wayward snake that's still living in my house. The dogs had a great time people-watching (a favorite of mine too), and their great night continued with a couple of bully sticks to munch on while I made dinner. I love those dinners where you pop a steamer bag into the microwave and park your butt on the couch to wait 10 minutes. It's good for quick nights when the hassle of cleaning up far outweighs the need for finer dining.

I made the mistake of turning on the Phillies game. The first two quick outs were nice to watch. The home run that came next sucked. I love watching the Phillies, but I hate feeling like a jinx. I'll check back in a little bit.

Now it's Beetlejuice. I realized how old I was getting because of this movie. I'd mentioned it to Brian's 17 year old cousin. She'd never seen it or even heard of it before. It was older than she was! Of course, they cut out all the good parts on TV, and nobody likes commercials. Still a good movie though.

The peace will only last for another 10 minutes. Dinner has been eaten. The dogs are still quietly gnawing. While I still can, I need to get some water treated for the fishtank and get their habitat properly cleaned. The laundry needs to go into the dryer and the dry clothes need to get put away. The dogs will need to go out and get fed in about an hour. The kitty will be begging for attention if I sit too long.

Time goes by way too quickly. If I don't jump up and get moving now, time will pass me by. Not just tonight, but every night, every week, every month. I don't want to let too much pass. It's too precious to lose.
