I'm not getting much sleep nowadays. I'm staying up way too late and getting up a little too late. It's not healthy, and I'm getting awfully cranky about pretty much everything. You know, cause I'm not normally cranky. Anyway, I feel really exhausted, so I'm going to bed in a few minutes (11:30 EDT? WTF???!?!?1!?)

Before then, some ultimate talk. I had my first Pro League game last night... we did OK but lost in the end. I caught a score by effectively pulling my poacher's pants down (he poached, so I busted deep to score uncontested). Instead of handling, I was primarily playing middle and deep, which I enjoyed. I'm liking the team depth thing. I'd like to spend the rest of the summer being a cutter, and dropping my lazy-handler habits. And working on defense, of course. Luckily our team is deep enough with handling talent that I can do all of that. I hope. I don't expect to see much of the disc, but the point is to get a rhythm back.

Top 10 Things I've Been Doing Since My Old Lady Took The Car And Drove Out West

Don't mistake this for glee in any way. I am simply reporting the facts I have observed lately.
  1. NHL 2004. Technically there was nothing stopping me from doing this before, but I'm just reporting my own observations here. I'm finally back to action! The 2010 playoffs have begun in earnest, and I need to be there for my team. Not so surprisingly, Joey Bananas is still leading the Bruins on the ice; surprisingly, he isn't choking in the playoffs! Another reason why video games are preferable to reality. Let's stop this conversation before it becomes more appropriate for that other blog.
  2. Staying out late. What time is it? Four-thir-tay... yeesh. This wasn't unheard of before, but it's a lot easier.
  3. Staying up late. I've gone to bed before 1:00 maybe twice since she left a week ago. This isn't as good as it sounds. Actually, this reminds me of something else...
  4. I'm not goddamn waking up on time. I'm getting to work at 9:15 on a regular basis. Kate's no morning person, but the fact that she needed to be up made me want to be up.
  5. Watching the Nationals. Even more than before. But I like watching them, and I like the baseball-only approach their TV announcers take. They're sympathetic towards the Nats without leaving the realm of reality. They're not great announcers, but I'll take them over some suck-up sycophantic Company Man.
  6. More meat. After Kate moved in, my freezer remained stocked and static. Now it's in a state of perpetual motion.
  7. Less DC time. The District is only 50 feet away right now, and yet it seems so far away. It was nice to have a reason to go into the city twice a week.
  8. Yelling at the Red Sox through the TV. Ehh, I guess I did this before. But now I do it louder.
  9. Calling up cheap L Street whores. Uh, I mean Meditating alone in a Zen-like fashion. It's been quite, uh, relaxing.
  10. Driving my newwwww caaaaaar!!!!! Come on down! You're the next contestant on Spend $20,000 All Told On A Pile Of Japanese Scrap Metal!!!
So, that's what I've been doing. And nothing else.

Blog, Part Deux

So I recently had my .Text blog hacked for the second time this year. So I decided to start over at a hosted location, since I'm clearly incapable of securing my web server and database server for whatever reason. Luckily I don't really need everything that the old blog handled, though it will be inconvenient to go without categories and articles. What's nice about Blogger is that I'll be able to email posts to the blog, instead of dealing with its merely-okay WYSIWYG tool.

As for the sports blog, it's moved here. All three of you who read the old blogs should update your bookmarks.

Anyway, haven't got a whole lot to say yet, so have a lovely day.
