Football and baseball and fetucide

Last night was the fantasy football draft.  There are only eight teams this year (last year there were twelve, and the year before that fourteen) so it went very quickly.  Also there weren't dudes there who I HATE like last year so that was nice too.  I drank during the draft and then I drank afterwards and had McDonald's at like 12:30am. 

It's neat to still have starters (or, rather, "dudes whom I've heard of") left on the waiver wire at the end of the draft!  With twelve and fourteen teams, man, you are digging DEEP in the last few rounds.

Yesterday morning there were two people at the exit driveway of my apartment complex, handing out paper bags with breakfast in it (a breakfast bar and a Hi-C juice box).  According to both the man who handed me my breakfast, and the sticker on the bag, it's courtesy my apartment complex.  Isn't that weird?  They did something like that about a month ago but I didn't accept because I thought they were religious freaks.  What is my apartment complex doing giving out breakfast?  I don't get it.  Oh that reminds me I have to call maintenance, I have a HORNET'S NEST above my balcony!  It totally freaks me out.

On Monday night I went to the new Phillies ballpark for the first time with Culann, Neil and Mitch for dollar dog day.  The Phillies lost, which was incredibly disappointing.  It was a pretty boring game.  But I did eat three hot dogs.  Also it was Gay Community Night and the section next to us was filled with cute, drunk lesbians.  When I'm hanging out with my guy friends I look at cute girls all the time, but this time *I* had the advantange!  Ha-HA!

I finished Shogun last week.  It was good, and I miss it, because I had only recently figured out that if I read it before bed, I'd dream that I was living in feudal Japan and drinking sake and cha and wearing kimonos and whatnot.  Man, and the book had a super surprise ending!  *I* was surprised, anyway!  I have the miniseries in my Netflix queue.  It is twelve hours long!  That's hot. 

Speaking of miniseries from Netflix, I watched episode 9 of I, Claudius the other day, which is the one where -- **SPOILER ALERT!!** -- Caligula ties up his sister and cuts open her belly and tries to eat his unborn son.  I hadn't technically seen this scene before, because the first time I watched I, Claudius was in Latin class in 11th and 12th grade, and Dr. Rose stood in front of the TV for that part.  So I was a little nervous about it, to be honest -- it turns out I had nothing to worry about, they don't show anything.  It's just that -- um, I forget the chick's name, but Caligula thinks she's Hera, so we'll call her Hera (it might be Livillia or something, I think that Livilla was her mother) Drusilla, it's Drusilla -- Caligula rips off Drusilla's toga, so she's standing/hanging there naked.  Dr. Rose just didn't want us to see butt.  But there's no gore or anything, Caligula just has a bloody mouth when he answers Claudius at the door.  I was more relieved than disappointed, I think.  Dead fetuses make me feel icky.

Man, just today to do laundry and pack and then Thursday to pack and then Friday I go to Ireland!  Also I get to see mein Bruder whom I haven't seen since I visited him in Germany!  Man, I'm going to miss the first week and a half of the Olympics, which is a shame, but still, man, Ireland.  I'm hype.

Oh also I think I'm going to get rid of all of my icons.

I like your icons!

Unless you have newer, better icons in the wings.

Well, they'll be new, at any rate!

I'm trying to place the lady icon. She looks like she's got moxy though.

I love that story of you flying the zipline in a cape. Score!

I vote kill 'em, too. I mean, even though I like 'em, just because starting with all new icons makes livejournal more fun.

Man...Ireland...seriously. I've always wanted to go there. Well, have fun and bring me back something GREEN!
