Oh, man...this may have been a big mistake, but for now I'm enjoying the hell out of it. Since I was out of milk for coffee, I decided to go out for breakfast and replenish dairy products on the way home. Original plan was to get a McMuffin at McDonald's and some McCoffee to wash it down with, since McCoffee no longer tastes like it's been filtered through burned socks, but since the neighborhood McD's credit/debit machines were fux0r3d I took my GI tract in my hands (not literally, euwww) and went to the IHOP on the other side of 395.

Much better than the IHOP by the Sprawl, it was. *burp* I drank 3-4 cups of coffee to wash down my biscuits & gravy, read USA TODAY in a leisurely fashion, and then motored on down to Harris Teeter for a gallon of whole milk, a buttload of store brand yogurt (there was a BOGO deal), and a couple heads of broccoli that were also on sale.

Now here I am at home, feeling righteously energized, and considering a road trip to Hagerstown (home of the Class A Suns) for Friday night fireworks, since Woodbridge (home of the Class A Nationals*) is more expensive, and, well, it's Woodbridge. Okay, it's down 95, and I have a horror of being stuck on that wretched piece of road in the middle of holiday traffic. Besides, Hagerstown Municipal looks like a nice old park, as opposed to the Nationals' Pfitzner Stadium. I'd stay at home and watch the college kids play with wooden bats, but apparently that league shuts down for the 4th.

And speaking of the Dukes, my fantasy team remains mired in seventh place, bogged down by a pitching staff that can't win, can't strike anyone out, and can't keep runners off base or away from home plate. Fox Mike Lima, as the cool kids say these days.

Ah, well...at least I can laugh at Iowahawk, who brings back memories of Disco Demolition Night with Recession Demolition Night.
