The game they've assigned us is two weeks from today: Saturday, May 21, at 3:05 p.m. vs. the Astros. I'm not sure if the Anthem gets played on the radio or TV broadcasts of the games (since I tend to still be teaching when the game actually starts), but, if you can't make it to the game, get by a TV or radio just in case. We're a chorus of sixteen, but the deep bass voice you'll hear is likely to be me.
A meeting of the
House arrest "lite": I was confined to the computer room for a couple of hours this morning while my living room ceiling was being painted. They had the entrance to the hallway covered in plastic, so I was literally stuck here. It was nice to catch up on blog-reading and the like, and now I just hope to not get high off the paint fumes before I go about my business. I was thankful to be able to grab some food and drink before I was blocked off, and even more thankful that Tasha slept peacefully while closed off in another room while not needing her litterbox for the duration.
