Well hello interwebz. Long time, no see.
How's everyone doing? LOVE the new hair. Have you lost weight?
Things with me are good. There has been a lot of change in the last few months, but change is good. I have found out that I am the type of person who needs radical change in their life on a semi-regular basis to keep sane. Is anyone else like this?
I'm flying solo these days and my hosta garden, actually a portion of it, is now in residence at CrabbyC's place. She's graciously made room in her already overflowing garden beds for some of my favorites. They'll lounge around her digs until I've got an appropriate location for them.
Do not fret, though, as I do have several specimen (is that already plural? like deer or fish?) potted up on the balcony of my 'much-less-maintenance-and-I'm-kind-of-digging-it' new(ish) apartment. Couldn't imagine not having hostas in my eyeline, no matter where I'm at.
The weather is changing though, and leaves are going to have to start being trimmed off as they yellow and droop. I can say, that though I miss the trees, I do NOT miss cleaning up 10 million leaves once they've fallen.
But, the change in weather also ushers in football season. Woot! I've got my FF team in place and I even won my first matchup, despite the freaking Bengals shitty defense garnering me a -1. A MINUS 1. I didn't even know that FF points went into the negative. I've switched it up this week, as I've also got the defense for Philly in my back pocket. They are playing Detroit this coming Sunday and apparently Detroit is none too good, so there is hope for me to get out of owing points this go-round. Keep your fingers crossed for me. kthx.
In addition to the NFL, it seems that rugby season has also kicked off. The Rocket Scientist plays for a local club and yours truly found out a couple of months ago that one CrabbyC actually digs rugby. (Who knew?) So, she and I will be taking in a match tomorrow afternoon. I have to say that I am quite looking forward to big, strong guys in tiny little shorts bashing up against each other and not stopping the action every 60 seconds for a commercial break. I haven't been to a match since high school (and even then it was more for the guy watching), so I am not entirely sure how the game works.
However, I do know that there is beer for everyone afterward. If my reward is beer, I'll learn the rules.
So, there you have it. I have made my triumphant return. (cue the trumpeters)
It's good to be back.
