It always happens this way. It’s becoming a tradition of sorts.

One day, I find myself in a semi-bad mood. The next day I am tired, which only enhances the bad mood from the day before, and then after retiring early for the evening, it hits me. BAM! I get no sleep all night. I’m cold. My chest hurts, my whole body aches. My head is filled with clouds.

Getting sick is a mystery to me. I can’t seem to recognize the warning signs when they occur. Once I’m actually sick, I can never decide exactly how sick I am either. There’s been days when I’ve called off of work to get sleep for the rest of the day & felt worlds better an hour after I thought I had the plague. The rest of the time, I decide to push through my discomfort, drive to work, and find that I actually do have the plague. I never win.

I’m at work now. We’ll see how long this lasts.

Apparently, a lot of people think Barack Obama is the Anti-Christ. I don’t. I don’t particularly care for his views on just about everything, I think he’s unqualified (for the record, so is Sarah Palin), and I do think he’s a Socialist…but I don’t think he’s the Anti-Christ.

I’ve never been to Reds Opening Day before. For those of you outside Cincinnati, it’s nearly a holiday here. A celebration of the baseball history in this city (1st professional baseball team!) complete with a parade and a bunch of people who only go to one baseball game all year. I’m going this year for the first time, and I’m excited, but the real tradition for me is going down to the ballpark for the second game of the year. It’s Opening Day for the real fans. People who just go to Opening Day are probably the same people who only go to mass on Christmas & Easter.

I stopped by Kroger yesterday to grab some food on my lunch break. I was stopped at the entrance by a gentleman asking if I would like to register to win a $100 gift certificate. Naturally, I signed up to win. Then he asked me if I would like to sign up for a newspaper subscription. Ummm…no. He wouldn’t stop trying to convince me, so I had to walk away while he was talking. I’m pretty sure that I just did my part for the demise of the newspaper industry. Sad…

I could see DanB getting a kick out of this. If only I still had video of the one man techno jam session SteveD & I had the pleasure of witnessing a year ago. You would understand what I’m talking about, but for now this vague description will have to suffice. And fail at doing any justice.

 Alright. I’m leaving work. This is brutal. I look, feel & sound like hell.

    Baseball, Kroger, and Catholicism. Spoken like a ture southwestern Ohioan.
