It's been an exciting week here in Geekville. Our very own Texas Rangers are finally going to the World Series. For those of you that are professional sports challenged, I'm talking about BASEBALL, the game where guys try to whack a round thing with a stick, run around in circles when they do, and when they stop running, they make adjustments to their protective undergarments.
Seriously, it can be loads of fun, and even more fun when your local team WINS!
I credit part of this success to me, Hubby, and our friends NOT attending the playoff games as they lost every playoff game we attended. Some credit also goes to none other than Bicentennial Mouse:
Yes, Ms. Mouse has been around since
1776 1976 and is still going strong. She wears her cap well, don't you think?
She has been hogging her seat in front of the tele for about a week using rally towels (hand towels with the team colors handed out at the playoff games) as bibs and eating us out of house and mouse. She is enjoying our cat-free environment although Evil Twin has been slinking around hissing at her.
Ms. Mouse will stay in place through the World Series, silently cheering for another first for the Texas Rangers.
I'm not so sure Ms. Mouse is as innocent as she seems. I've noticed a few beers missing form the garage fridge....and there are some mouse turds near the door. Hum.... is that candy corn in those turds?
In other news, we are having new water pipes installed in our neighborhood. Basically, this is because our city wants to "improve our infrastructure" and have the opportunity to accept our hard-earned money each month instead of us paying a neighboring city for water service.
Yeah, thanks, City. We won't be excited about the price increase, either.
It's a mess and yesterday the excitement was a blue pipe went walk-about and crashed into a brick wall, a bulldozer nearly ran my friend off the road twice, and an extremely accident-prone neighbor fell into one of the pits.
Oops. He wasn't injured and fortunately, neither was the pit or the concrete.
I think the neon-vested worker bees were hitting the beer thermos during their lunch break.
Tune in next time for more exciting and/or treacherous events here in Geekville.
