11. August, 2004 - that wasn’t what I expected

Yesterday wasn’t at all what I expected. Well, I guess part of it was. I woke up and scrambled through the morning to get a bug or two fixed. That went pretty well, but there was some time pressure. I guess that’s why they pay me the big bucks, right? After that, things started to deviate from the plans.

After lunching and heading home, I was just wiped out. I’m not sure why I was so tired, but I was, and took a nap for a couple hours. When I woke up, I wasn’t feeling at all like going to a baseball game, so I called the guy I was going with and told him I was bailing on the tailgating and game plans. At that point, I was planning on a quiet evening at home, including maybe some TV and a bunch of sleep.

Once I had decided not to go to the game, I got strangely productive. I caught up on email again (mostly) and knocked off a bunch of little work things that have been waiting in the wings for a while. Then I called up Bill, who was busy talking to MPP. It was decided that we should go out and buy Mike some beers, since he’s been unemployed for a while.

That’s how I find myself writing this at three am, rather than being asleep like a sane person would be. What I had planned to be a quiet evening turned into a (rather expensive) evening out with the boys, but it was a whole lot of fun, and I don’t feel at all bad about not going out to the ballgame for the first time of the season. The weather was sucky, and I’m glad I spent the evening in a nice warm bar, rather than shivering outdoors watching the game, even if the Saints did win in what sounds like a decent game.
