4. August, 2004 - calm

Today’s something of an anomaly in my life. I find myself with a clean plate this morning. The work I’ve been plugging away at for the past few months has let up temporarily, and it’s probably a good day to just take a day off from that. There’s plenty to do on the home-front, but I haven’t even started to put together a to-do list for the day, and I might not until tomorrow. I don’t know yet. It’s quite possible I’m just going to be a lazy bum all day. Maybe I’ll get a chance to go out for a long walk. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done that, and I miss it.

There’s some catching up to do in the writing, though. Monday’s Saints game was the bobblection. I didn’t get a bobblehead, but that’s okay. The “voting” process was complicated enough that it caused a fair number of headaches at the game, and I just concentrated on watching the Saints win. I had more fun in the parking lot pre-game as various Bush and Kerry supporters wandered the lot, asking if I wanted a sticker or a free hot-dog. I usually responded politely, but informed them that Bush was far too left-leaning for me (he signed the Medicare prescription drug plan, one of the bigger social programs ever enacted, for one) and that I probably should have a “Lunatics for Badnarik” sticker or something such. It actually made for some fun political discussion among those who actually got my meaning.

I also heard back from my blind date. She’s been busy lately, and will be for at least the rest of this week, but we might find some time next week. I’m looking forward to making some plans for socializing that don’t include a Saints game. I’m going to have to make the transition to off-season mode one of these days if I don’t want to spend all winter missing baseball.
