Less than a month till baseball season opens. Yea! The guys are already busy at spring training although I am not sure how ‘spring-like’ it feels. You know, if Direct TV wanted to make extra money from me they would put together a package with one or possibly two Cards games a week and a short recap of the week’s highlights. This, I would buy,
I wanted to mention it is READ AN EBOOK WEEK before it isn’t anymore . I picked up some short stories from the Suvudu free library but looking around there are so many more ebooks available this year than last. A quick search on Google turns up thousands of free ebooks, just waiting to be read.
Found this in my email:
“Your friends at Suburban Home Records want to help you design your next album, website, shirt, ad, or whatever you need help with”.
They offer services such as Album Design, Web Design, Building Vinyl art from CD art elements, T-shirt/merch design, Bio writing, Distribution/marketing advice and/or getting your album registered with Soundscan.
(parts of the Suburban Home Records rec were paraphrased because the original announcement was so massively big)
Things to do to keep yourself awake (and sane) when everyone but Baby is hang-dog sick and Baby refuses to go to sleep:
Pop over to Fender and watch the video on the New American Standard line. Guitarists from Pete Wentz to Merle Haggard all muse on why they love their Fender guitars. Also has a nice preview of the guitars themselves.
Over on Blind Pig check out the free mp3′s.
Then you can head over to Joe Bonamassa’s website and watch Bonamassa TV.
And don’t forget the Cardinal website to check out the ‘Countdown to Spring Training’ clock. Or you could pick up ringtones, wallpapers or register for a chance to purchase opening day tickets.
Manage to get Baby to sleep at 2:15 am and go collapse in bed.
Yesterday was the 4th of July and we did 4th of July-ish stuff. We swam in the pool, we cooked out.
Cooked out, not barbecued. Every time I turned on the tv yesterday I got the ‘all across America people will be barbecueing’ speel and then the film showed some guy throwing a burger on the grill. This is -NOT- barbecue. Barbecue involves sauces and rubs and slow cooking/basting. Tossing a piece of meat on the grill is -grilling-, not barbecue.
Having said that, we did not barbecue. (grin) We had burgers, smoked sausage and cold watermelon. Later we had ice cream. (essential for the 4th) Once it got dark, we hosed the front lawn down and Kahuna shot fireworks (we had some really cool ones this year) while the ‘Bit and I ran around with our sparklers.
I have a Cards game saved on Tivo I wanted to watch but Kahuna thought grilling and fireworks were enough ‘guy’ things for one day. (how can he not like baseball??)
I cut him some slack because he has been pretty guyish lately. His brother and sister-in-law are having a baby this fall and she told me they are naming her (the baby) Shelby. I tell Kahuna this and he gets this odd look on his face, then smiles and says “Oh cool, like the Mustang”.
*pounds head on desk*
Gotta go, I have sparkler bits to clean up from the porch.
