Oh, the frustration…

…of fog.

iss.pngSee, I woke up super-early this morning (5:45 AM) to see the International Space Station make its way across my morning sky.  However, when I got to the roof I realized that I couldn’t even see across my own street, much less 2.20 miles up.  It was a huge bummer.  But at least it’ll be making another pass tomorrow morning.

If you’re a space dork like me, go to this site and find out when you can see the ISS.  It’s really neat.

The fog was so thick that I couldn’t even see Minute Maid Park en route to school this morning.  Talk about sadness.

I am so tired of the crazy weather we’ve been having.  Historically, Houston winters after major hurricanes have been extremely cold.  I thought we were seeing some of that when it snowed last week (LAST WEEK!  I still can’t believe it) but I guess I was wrong.  It’s 76 now, and will range from high 30s to high 70s over the next few days.  Seriously?  I’m done with this.  When I walked outside this afternoon I couldn’t even breathe it was so humid.

Pointless Ramblings (as if the above weren’t pointless enough):
– So I finished reading The Mediator series by Meg Cabot.  I swore to myself that I would never buy any more of her books after reading Ready or Not, which may be the most disappointing and trashy book I’ve ever read (disregard the Stephanie Plum novels, please, because at least those are entertaining).  But I was screwed as soon as I opened the first book.  They’re addictive.  I read the other five over a span of three days–not kidding.
– Which brings me to my next point.  I need new suggestions for books to read until my copy of Jane’s new book shows up in February.  A girl can only read The Boyfriend League or The Rookie so many times in one week.  There just aren’t enough good baseball books for female fans out there–I’m trying to write one, but it’s hard to go to school, have a job, and write a book at the same time.  Progress is happening, just very slowly.
– I need a nap.  Exams are over and I just need a gosh dang nap.
– MLB NETWORK.  Need I say more?

They say it’s inevitable…

…but I hate change.

For example, this morning I found out that Robert B. Macentire and TJ Callahan, two morning DJs on KILT that I grew up listening to, were laid off.

It extends to baseball too.

ManRam not playing for the Red Sox.  Ken Griffey Jr. not playing for the Reds.  Matt Holliday not playing for the Rockies (*sniff*).

How was Thanksgiving?

I ate a ton of stuffing and laid about in an Emmitt Smith jersey as I watched the Cowboys trample the Seahawks.  I almost cried as I watched the Aggies get trampled by those damn Longhorns.  GOD I hate t.u.  I’m gonna miss Ol’ Army next year.

It was freaking 80 degrees out on Thursday and Friday.  It’s November!  But now it’s severely cloudy and 68, so that’s nice.

I’m all over the place this morning.

The city opened an outdoor ice rink at Discovery Green downtown.  I can’t imagine how much that will cost to keep frozen.  They’re limiting skate time to 1-1/2 hours on weekends, which I don’t quite understand and it makes me wish I’d gone yesterday.  I suppose there’s always the mall.
