I tried it. Didn't like it.

I have given the new Jay Leno Show a half hour and you know what? It's not that funny. Sorry, Jay.

Sounds good, but I'm not sure I agree

The 09 Season Is Over, & I Never Got to See Him Play

"He" of course is my beloved future Hall of Famer, #31, Greg Maddux. I saw his number retired twice, first at Wrigley Field (where it flies beneath the number of my Grandma's all-time favorite Cub) and then at Turner Field in Atlanta. (He's one of only 8 players in history to have his number retired by 2 teams.) But on this bright autumn afternoon, I feel it keenly that I never got to see him "paint the corners" this season.

Wherever you are, Professor, this Gal misses you.

"I Want" Wednesday

What do you want to do dress up as and do for Halloween?

I'm not dressing up for Halloween, though I suppose I could just get into costume and wander around the house. I'm feeling very sitcom-y so ...

I want to dress up as Lucy Riccardo.

As someone once said, "I love Lucy."

That was one long day

Up at 4:30. On an Amtrak train by 7:00. Client meetings at 10:00 and 1:00. Back home at 6:30. Asleep on the sofa by 8:00. Awake again at 12:30. My living room looks like an episode of A&E's Hoarders.

The highlight of the day was the train ride. It's cheaper for my client than driving would be (we're reimbursed for gas by the mile). Even if I was still comfortable enough behind the wheel to take a company car, there's no reason for 4 of us to go down, each in our own car. Besides, I like my alone time.
