I really enjoy baseball

America's pasttime! Hot dogs, beer, sunshine, the crack of the bat... and sulking.

And boob grabbing in front of God and everybody... and Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy. I sure do miss those two!

Thanks to Buzzfeed for the first video, and Pete, of course, for the latter. PLAY BALL!!!

It's seriously so hot!

If I am outside this week, and not in a pool, this is a pretty good summation of what I feel like:

I had to shut my office door and mop myself with paper towels when I got in this morning. My dear friend Dave said he had to go stand for 10 minutes in his lab's walk in fridge. Dave is a scientist who works with monkey rectums... but that's a story for another post.

Just got sent this, sans commentary Sydney, who sends me all the best things.

That is all.

For Sydney

Syd and I had a great summer weekend together. Wine on her porch, popcorn and a movie (note: Horrible Bosses sucks, don't bother seeing it), and two trips to our new favorite place - the community pool! It's hard to beat swimming and sunshine with your bestie... even if it does result in a sunburn. As a thank you to her, I present THIS:

Have you seen Harry Potter yet?

I have not, but I am a very big Harry Potter fan and while I can't wait to see the final film, I am also dreading the end of the franchise. Luckily some intrepid souls on Twitter have been playing a little game called #GrownUpHarryPotterBooks. Buzzfeed collected their faves:

HA! The comments had more gems:

Harry Potter Realizes he has Become Uncle Vernon

Harry Potter Gets Excited About his New Septic System

Harry Potter Refinances

Crabbe and Goyle Make More Money than Harry Potter

Harry Potter Needs a Gastroenterologist

Harry Potter Wonders if This is All There Is

Yes, Harry. With the end of your books and movies, this is pretty much all there is.

This was a long week!

Summer is supposed to be an easygoing season, but that is not the case in the steno pool. I've been very busy! Too busy to blog! That's just not okay, so I'm taking a break to share with you this very special clip of someone falling down - it's so special because it involves a trampoline!

OUCH! Maybe one less beer before you attempt that next time, pal!

More Sleepy Sam Speak

This morning I went to make sure Sam was getting up, as he has a double at Cashion's and needed to be out the door by about 8:45. I put my hand on his shoulder to wake him up and was about to say something, but before I opened my mouth he said:

"I'm not dressed like a clown!"

I let him keep sleeping for a bit longer, since he was apparently having a really entertaining dream.

Zardoz Update! We have Pete to thank.

I was leaving the gym yesterday and got this text from Pete:

"I was the one that told you about Zardoz!!!!!!!!!!!"

He was not pleased that I had forgotten! He forwarded me a Gchat from March 2010 as proof:

A movie I love - Zardoz

I've never actually seen Zardoz, but it is one of my favorite movies. I can't remember how I found out about it, but I know I saw the trailer for this 1974 insta-classic on some blog, at some time, and fell immediately in love:

I had forgotten all about Zardoz, though, until I saw this post on Best Week Ever that puts it right back in the spotlight where it belongs.
