wombat

and before I forget...

Weighed in at 403.5 when I was at the clinic yesterday. I'd really rather not have to go to the hospital to drop weight, but it appears to work better than some other things I've been doing. Still, there's more veggies and fruit around here than usual, so there's a pretty good chance that by the time November 15 rolls around that I'll be under 400 for the first time in...I don't know. Before I started LJ, maybe.

Reading a lot of Bill James Baseball Abstracts and such like books this past week, getting re-immersed in baseball and its technical side. It's been suggested that I do a baseball blog, but I am several years out of the loop and don't recognize half these players. I did volunteer my services as a reporter to STATS, Inc., and may well be covering a bunch of games for them next year. Hopefully that won't involve getting cable or satellite. I am also half-seriously considering making an offer to the Nationals. Their farm system is kind of bare at the moment and it occurs to me that they could use a hired gun who is somewhat familiar with the independent leagues. Even if they pay me in tickets or gift cards, it's better than nothing and may get me access to information I wouldn't have otherwise.

Finally, I got my lease renewal for Foxchase; they're going to want $980/month next year. :(
