The drug called sports

I’m sitting here on a BEYOOOTIFUL Sunday afternoon listening to the Warriors/Timberwolves game on the radio – how pathetic is that? I feel a bit lame, but it is what it is.

The Warriors are in the “playoff chase”. As a die hard Giants fan, I ain’t experiencing such an occasion anytime in the near future…

So what does the addictive personality do? Find the next best thing — basketball in the Bay Area. It’s pretty exciting I have to admit. I found myself tempted to purchase tickets to Baron Davis’ bday party, to occur tonight at Mezzanine in the city. Of course as a person who listens to the radio at 3pm on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, I have no idea what Mezzanine is but I’m assuming it’s a hot night spot in the city. If I weren’t so old and didn’t have to wake up for work at oh 4 AM, I’d go. Seriously. I am tempted.

Instead, I will be good. I have plans to walk with a friend in a local suburban area, maybe enjoy a glass of wine on a patio somewhere then prepare for yet another OH SO FUN work week (the caps are an attempt to demonstrate the sarcasm in my voice!) – but how much fun would it be to dance and get down with Baron Davis and his teammates… grrrrr!

Ok the Warriors just won the game, but icing on the cake will be the moment when the Kings beat the Clippers, with whom the Warriors are neck and neck with in the chase for a Playoff berth.

Thanks to Ayelet who re-introduced me to the world of blogging. It is quite therapeutic indeed! Time to refill the wine glass.

Okay, here I am 2 years later. Can you tell I can be a bit absent minded when it comes to this blog?!

So, let’s see. What has been occupying my time? Well, I switched jobs in June 2005 (I now sell IT Monitoring software to companies on the East Coast) and I’ve been pretty happy with the change, except recently I’ve started to feel restless…. there are some pretty major flaws in how my company is set up and I question the capabilities of Management. Of course every company has it’s issues, but they are stacked pretty high at this company.

Also, how BORING can you get? Really.. monitoring software? I sell to the geekiest of the geeks — Sys Admins, IT Directors, and C-Level technical management.

Pete and I got ourselves a little bundle of joy. Yes we GOT a bundle of joy, we did not CREATE one. Although, I’ve been dragging my feet for likely a bit too long… the boy is getting restless for one of those bundles of joy that like to scream, cry, suck boobies, and interfere with all the fun and independence I’ve gottten quite used to. Then there is the whole 9 month dealio. WHY can’t they figure out a way so men can have babies?

Where was I?? Oh yes. The bundle of joy is our precious, adorable and absolutely hilarious Boston Terrier who we named Lucy. She was born October 19, 2005 and we picked her up in December, 2005. She’s pretty much the love of our lives. Like all bundles of joy, our lives revolve around her. No more Happy Hours in the city after work as I gotta go home to let Lucy out and go for a walk. Weekends away? We couldn’t POSSIBLY leave Lucy with a dog sitter. She rules our world and we’re pretty happy to let her.

I’ll write more in my next posting (hopefully it won’t be in 2009!) Perhaps I’ll figure out how to post pictures on this thing…
