Enterprise Bridge

(no subject)

Again, I dreamt of the un-vacated Urbana apartment. This time, it had an attached garage, which some plumbers opened to do some unspecified maintenance without advanced notice, which upset me greatly. Though I was more concerned about the (unspecified) life-altering decisions that both Jason and Kumar were making. Dunno WTF that's supposed to mean.

This was after I went back to sleep when my alarm went off at 6am. I very nearly got dressed and drove out to Grossmont HS for the kids' baseball tournament. Which starts tomorrow. There's this weird element to the way I think, in that holidays are automatically deleted from the planning calendar in my head. From a planning perspective on Wednesday, Friday is "tomorrow", and this is not the first time I've gotten hung up on that. The only thing that stopped me was the thought, as I was coming out of the bathroom and preparing to shave and brush my teeth, was that DSC was an automated best-of show voice-tracked by their producer, obviously for Thanksgiving. Oh, yeah. Thanksgiving. I guess I can go back to bed now.

Last night's basketball not-really-a-game went well. We smoked Scripps Ranch something like 65-37. It was a different mental workout for me... I haven't scored a basketball game in a while, so it's "muscles" I haven't used for that while. Between that and the late start of the game (9pm,) I was pretty beat by the time I got home, when I had to double-check I had all the birth certificates for the baseball team. I didn't even think about last night's West Wing waiting on the MythTV box...

I'll be doing Thanksgiving dinner with Karen and Marty at Karen's sister's place. Eric's with his dad for this holiday, so he'll probably poke his head in around dessert or something. I'm supposed to dress nicely... a shirt with a collar and buttons, and "shoes that go with slacks". I know I'm going to get a look when I show up in the tan suede Nikes I have for just such occasions. Or maybe not, maybe the sociopathic switchblade-wielding lop-eared bunny rabbit on my shirt will be too distracting?
