I thought it would scare him, at least with my scary fake accent, but it didn't. Seems to have prepared him a little instead. He said he'll be packing lamb in his pockets, Elaine-style (great Seinfeld episode). Of course, the crew was delighted to hear such treats are in store.
The invitation to my cousin's wedding in October arrived. I knew I would be going, but I didn't know it would be held in the lavish Aqua Turf. That photo doesn't do it justice. It is a night wedding, so not much of the scenery will be appreciated. However, the venue means two things to me: 1. Awesome food, therefore I must look the best that I possibly can, and 2. It would be nice if I had a date. I'm the oldest unmarried (divorced) cousin who'll be there I think, and damnnit all, if I have to be there, I want to have fun and dance and not face all the "So how come you don't have a boyfriend" questions from relatives. I might just go with the shocker "I've converted to a lesbian" answer if I can't get a date.
Someone emailed me and asked "So, with all the working out and food planning, are you losing pounds?"
Fair question, although I'm trying not to focus on the numbers hang up.
Amazingly, the answer is no. Maybe there's something wrong with me.
I'm still in the 60s, the low 60s. But nothing to report. When I am safely ensconced in the 50s, I'll be sure to let you know. Safely no longer means 59 or even 58. Safely would have to be crooked numbers like 57.
4-game series against the Yankers starts tonight.
Let's Go Red Sox!!!
