And It's Only Tuesday

CitiField - Home of the New York Mets 2

There won't be a whole lot of blogging from me for the next day or so. It's a sort of busy week. We had EastOver dinner here on Sunday followed by company on Monday. Some of our best friends came down from Massachusetts to see the Mets lose their home opener on our TV instead of the one that they’ve got at home. Normally they go to the actual ballpark to see the opener, but what with it being the first home game at the brand new Citi Field (otherwise known as Bailout Field) they couldn’t get hold of affordable tickets. One thing about your team losing is it can make you feel a lot better about not blowing the grocery money on tickets to the game. At least at our house they were on the same land mass as the stadium.

So we had our three friends and they brought along two of their dogs, making it the first time Lola has played hostess since she’s been living with us. Turns out she loves having her own company and all the dogs had a wonderful time romping around the backyard and then milling around the house. She definitely had a thing for the border collie mix and I think it was mutual. Don’t let anyone tell you there isn’t love after spaying and neutering. There’s also humping. But you probably knew that.

Today was my day in the other office which is located an hour away instead of a few minutes and I don’t get much chance to keep up with events outside the office on those days. I missed the live coverage of the First Dog. I hope to catch up with that in the days ahead.

Tomorrow night Stevie the cat goes to the vet to get his stitches out, but I hope to be able to get up to speed on Tea Bagging day somehow. I don’t want to completely miss this. So that’s it. Not exactly a real post. More like just checking in.

  1. You will be missed.. just be careful and try to enjoy your day. Glad Lola had fun with her company and passed that hurdle.

  2. Take it easy, Zen. Go light on the teabagging.

  3. I had to chuckle a little at the "love after spaying and neutering". I remember the humping, from spayed/neutered dogs very well.
