1. I’m taking baby steps to adulthood, you guys. Last night, after the bf’s crappy laptop burned me (yes – BURNED ME. And left a big red mark on my left leg.), I got fed up and finally broke down and purchased the Chromebook I wanted. (Before you judge my Chromebook purchase, let me make a couple of points – I only use a computer for checking Twitter, blogging, streaming TV shows, and Google docs. Oh, and iTunes. I will have a big enough hard drive to update my iPod, and it’ll be fast enough for me to play slot machine games on Facebook. So there ya go.) I also got a deal that includes 12 free gogo internet passes for when I fly. Since I still have a lot of trips left for the rest of the year, this will come in very handy.
As I’m sitting here at work thinking about it, I realize that I have NEVER bought a computer for myself. Like, ever. So here it is, I’m less than 2 months shy of 31, and I finally bought a computer. Next step? Replacing my car. UGH.
2. You should see what I did to my toe. I have a blood blister on my 2nd toe, on the side next to my big toe. It’s gross. It doesn’t help that the toenail on the 2nd toe is threatening to come off, and throbs me to sleep every single night. Ahhh, the life of a runner.
(I tried to take a picture of it, but it didn’t really do it justice. I also learned that it’s really, really hard to take pictures of the insides of your toes.)
3. Something unrelated to everything – Dale Sveum. (He’s the Cubs manager, in case you were unaware.) I don’t like the way that Cubs management is not standing up for him. My gut tells me that he will be let go at the end of the season, and that is absolutely the wrong decision. It’s not his fault that you, Cubs management, have been picking players off the dung heap and sending them out in a Cubs uniform the entire time that he has been here. 88 players have cycled through the system in 2 years – that is completely unacceptable. As for Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo not hitting? If I were them, I wouldn’t give a shit either. Just saying.
Stand by your man. Don’t fire Dale. Spend money on players (NOT THE STADIUM) instead.
