Four Wins Away

Me - Smiling
San Francisco Giants: 6
St. Louis Cardinals: 3

Giants win the NLCS 4 -1, and move on to face the Kansas City Royals in the World Series.

This does not get old.

The Giants won on a three-run, walk-off home run (sound familiar?) after Cardinal's skipper Mike Matheny decided to put a right-handed pitcher who hadn't thrown in a game for month in to face a switch-hitter and two lefties. He then left that pitcher in after a single and a four pitch walk put the World Series in scoring position. Up comes Travis Ishikawa, a man who thought his baseball career was over back in April, gets a fastball on a 2-0 count. Over the plated and belt-high. Gone.

The Giants win the pennant. The Giants own the National League Pennant.

I celebrated, MadBum style

Bring on KC!
GO GIANTS!
FOUR MORE WINS!!!

This is why I'm not allowed to own guns.

Penguin - Exploding
We are much older than both our neighbors. The young lady in apartment 3 is a 20-something that we rarely see. The people in #1 are even younger, and, frankly, not qualified to live on their own. I'll start with the garbage situation. For a long time, I'd take out all the bins on Monday night for the early Tuesday collection. However, between the stroke recovery and the pain and numbness caused by the PN, I can barely handle taking our can out.

Rather than taking responsibility, they just dumped their trash in my bin, and into the recycling bins. Call to the landlord, because suddenly we have flies everywhere.

But then the girlfriend (who isn't on the lease) shows up with an adorable 6 week old husky puppy. Her birthday present, she tells us.

They leave it alone, in a crate, for ten hours a day. I have to listen to it cry for ten hours a day. And the last few days have been ones where I didn't feel safe to drive. By the time [personal profile] kshandra got home yesterday, I was a wreck. Seriously, if I had a sledge hammer I would have broken down the door. That puppy was terrified! Animal Control was called, as were the police for the noise complaint. Several calls to the landlord, who didn't know that they had a dog. Dogs aren't allowed.

I really don't need this stress.

But in happier news, the Giants are one win from the World Series.

Money for Nothing, Groceries for Free

Me - Smiling
Ever look at the receipts you get from stores and fast food places? Notice those "take our survey and be entered to win" links? I do them every time. Never mind that I like making sure that corporate knows when good service is happening, I have all the free time in the world. So I fill out questionnaire after questionnaire; submitting my opinions on cleanliness and friendliness of staff into the maw of the data-cruncher.

Then, about a week ago, I got a call. Smart&Final had selected my survey for a $500 shopping card. It showed up Thursday. Today, [personal profile] kshandra and I went shopping. We had to keep telling ourselves that this was all free. We loaded up with what, for us, is a month's worth of groceries. We didn't go crazy, didn't buy things because they looked good (OK, we did buy brownies, but I had been craving them), and still looked for deals.

At the end, with the cart loaded to the brim and having traversed every aisle, we went to check out. After seeing that impressive load come across the scanner, the total was... $193.94. We didn't pay a dime of it. We could do this again and still have about $100 left on the card.

So the lesson here is fill out those surveys! You can't win if you don't enter!

Attention Gamers!

Gaming - Roman d20
Anyone, and I mean anyone, interested in gaming with me go here: http://www.faterpg.com/ and download Fate. Feel free to throw some money at them.

I'm posting this bloody everywhere, so I hope to have some sort of gaming group in the near future.

Let me know in the comments what genres and styles interest you.

Need I say that this is so I can set up a face-to-face regular session so I can have some semblance of a social life? I spend all day in front of the computer already. I am not interested in on-line gaming at this point.
