Fantasy Bazeball

Well, I didn’t end up in last place. My team, the Bench Warmers, who spent the first few weeks of the season in 1st place, finished up in 8th. Just when I finally got my team straightened out, the season ended. I swear, next year I’m going to do better. Hell, I did better this year because of things I learned last year. But one of my biggest flaws is that I leave people in too long. If one of my players has a great May, his June AND July can stink before I pull him out. Next year, I’m going to be better, I swear.

My Fantasy Football team, by the way, is in 5th place. I may drop to 6th after the Monday Night game, but hey, it’s not last place. Oh, but uh, it’s not if you win or lose, right? As long as my QB doesn’t throw 4 interceptions again next week, I’ll be happy.

There is just no way I’m going to finish this script by Wednesday. Or it would be finished (barely) but not edited, and that certainly isn’t going to impress anyone. I guess maybe I’ll keep working but I’ve got SO many more pages to write…it needs to be a minimum of 80, and well, I’m not there yet. Not even close (Okay, I’ve only got 8 completed pages). I thought I had until Thursday, but I only have until Wednesday. PLUS you have to fill out an application, pay $30, and also register your script with two different organizations (to protect your copyright) which I’m sure costs money as well.

I’m kind of sad that I didn’t get it finished, I certainly had enough time to do it, I just didn’t have it at the top of my To Do list.

Well, I’m not wasting the beautiful weather of the next three days only to find out I don’t have the money to do this OR a completed script that I think stands a chance. So I’m going to go pumpkin picking today. It won’t be as exciting as yesterday, but that’s okay too.

Oooh, a Sever Weather Alert!

I have to admit, my heart beats a little faster when I see a red asterisk next to my city’s name on my Yahoo page. It means something’s happening…something…just a little out of the ordinary. Xtreme Weather! Okay, so the link will maybe show you nothing, if you aren’t reading this today. So I’ll cut and paste for you slackers.

" The remnants of Isidore...Over Ohio late this morning...Will move
across southern Vermont and southern New Hampshire tonight.

A Wind Advisory is issued when sustained winds are forecast to be 31
to 39 mph...Or gusts will Range between 46 and 57 mph. Winds of
these magnitudes May cause Minor property damage without extra
precautions. Motorists in high profile vehicles should use caution
until the winds subside.

I don’t know if I have a high profile vehicle or not. I think maybe I do, because I used my inkjet printer to create a bumper sticker (removable) and I’m kind of pleased with how it raises the profile of my 10-year-old car. I am noticable, baby.

On the other hand, I’m glad I saw this because I shouldn’t leave the umbrella in the stand. And I should give a Flintstone’s Chewable to my lawn pinwheel, cause he’s gonna be busy tonight.
