Friday Night Potpourri

End of the non-work week odds and ends:

  • Last night I went to the Giants game against Arizona, and it was shorts weather. After 25 years of holding Giants season tickets, I have only been able to wear the t-shirt/shorts combo maybe a dozen times for a night game. It is usually extremely cold on a San Francisco summer evening.
  • A new neighbor in the apartment across the street installed a new lawn in their back yard. He came over and asked if I had a lawn mower he could borrow to mow it. I said yes. As payment, he offered to mow my lawn. Perfect.
  • Still unemployed. I have a number of friends in the architecture profession who have been out of work as long or longer than I have. No new jobs for them either. One friend found a new job, only to be laid off again a few months later.
  • Autumn is coming. I love the weather and the air and the sun. Just a few months until colored leaves.
  • Pennant races are shaping up in baseball. Mostly wild-card battles.
  • This song came out while I was in college. It was played quite a bit on MTV (back when MTV played music). Not my favorite genre of music, but the overall feel made it one of those songs I remember from a specific time period. My friend and I both had a crush on the girl in the video.

  1. I remember that song. I is great that I'm able to play video now without it stopping every few seconds. We just got DSL in our area. The real fun thing about having DSL is being able to play Madden 2010 online with the Xbox 360.
