Breathing space

Fortunately neither of the classes I'm taking at St. Mary's start until the 26th, which is a really good thing since the month is chock-full of conventions and AD meetings and Diversicon/Arcana meetings, and somewhere in the middle of all that I need to get caught up on my sleep, get some stuff up on eBay like my old Jin-Roh DVD which is now surplus, and do laundry.

My fantasy baseball team finished third, mostly on the strength of pitching and stolen bases. This is really ironic since that's 180 degrees removed from the kind of team I actually like and would actually build if I was Carl Pohlad, but I'll take a third-place finish any way I can get it. I'll probably post the stats on my homepage when I get around to mangling the numbers into an Excel spreadsheet and making them look purty. I must be getting better at this; this is, IIRC, the second, maybe third year in a row that I've finished in the money. Makes me wonder how I'd do in a real pay-for-play league.

No, I'm not listening to the VP debate. I'm listening to the Twins, but not for much longer: they're ahead 2-0, I'm tired, and I have faith in the fielders, if not the bullpen. Hopefully Santana can get through eight innings and hand off that two-run lead to Joe Nathan...better yet, maybe the Twinks will rack up a few more runs.
