In Hot Water


Back of the train in Brooklyn

The hot water in the apartment came back on today after being off for the last two days. It was pretty bad in this nippy weather. It was back to the concrete slab bathroom and two pots of boiled water method of bathing. I can deal with a lot of rough living and inconvenience, but not having a hot shower really bites.

In other news, the semi-final results of the recall:

Proposition 54 preventing collection of racial demographic data was soundly defeated, as well as Proposition 53 allocating up to 3% of the state budget to infrastructure.

The Boston Red Sox won the first game against the Yankees 5-2 for the pennant. I’m torn between supporting New York and supporting the underdogs.

Baseball continued

And, now we know – Chicago Cubs vs. Florida Marlins, Boston Red Sox v. NY Yankees. Plus, the Mets’ pitcher Al Leiter on Fox doing the color analysis of the Cubs/Marlins game – the Marlins, Leiter’s ex-team? Baseball in October never ceases to surprise me.

Wonder if the news in CA is up yet? Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger? We do live in interesting times, after all…

Baseball

It’s 10:35pm; do you know where your children are? Just when you think it’s time to give up with baseball, they suck you back in… This Boston v. Oakland, Game 5, is turning out to be quite a watch. The A’s are trying to tie it up – again – and poor Johnny Damon had to be ambulanced out. The Yankee fans must be biting their nails, worrying who will be the team their team shall play in the league champion round. Makes me almost glad that I usually put up with the Mets.
