Due to my current geographical quandry I was unable to see Gagne give up back-to-back homers and a single to blow the sweep of the Reds, though I did get to hear all about it when I had the ESPN Phillies/Mets game on in the hotel room. Say lah vee. There, my blood pressure has returned to its semi-normal levels.
My flights kinda/sorta/really sucked. From Madison to Kansas City I had the delight of sitting next to a larger lady with horrible BO. Seriously, she was like the Stink Monster from Lost or whatever. On the second, longer leg of my journey I sat across the aisle from an older couple. For more than half the flight they alternated standing in the aisle facing their seats doing knee bends and exercises while their asses came perilously close to my face. I stoically read my book. I did get in early to SFO yet all I did with my extra time was pay $5.68 for a Miller Lite and watch the dumb NBA Playoffs. I would have gone down to do some gardening but I was scheduled to have dinner with a co-worker and his family. That was good too, though, as I got some good ol’ Mexican food from Los Charros in Mountain View.
Starting on Wednesday I’ll be reporting LIVE from San Francisco at the Intuit Tech Forum. Co-starring, The Madddddddddd Scientist or as we call him these days Worky McNoGamble.
