Ol’ Yellow Eyes Tuesday, Aug 14 2007 

13 August 2007

Monday the 13th. The day started with a bang when my boss decided it was time for me to host the daily conference call. I’ve been listening to the calls for years now, but had never really needed to participate overmuch. Now, I was hosting the thing. I’m sure my nervousness squeaked out in my voice, but I muddled through and managed to get through my day successfully. Outside, the temperature ranged from hot to bloody damn hot. I did not play in my team’s final game of the season. The Strikers did win, though, meaning we may or may not be relegated. I think that will boil down to penalty points (that is: points deducted from our total because we didn’t do certain things). The day also happens to be Brett’s birthday (Happy Birthday, mate!). To celebrate we went to Taco Cabana. Then, Brett, Jill & I wound our way down to No Frills Grill for the final set of natal libations. Through all of this, I didn’t take a single photo. Nope. Not one. Luckily my friend, Cormac, stood still long enough in the midnight hour for me to snap this shot: Ol' Yellow Eyes
I tried to Photoshop the yellow out of his eyes, but after a few attempts, I gave up and left it there. They lend a certain mystique.

2003 Arsenal Away Strip Tuesday, Aug 14 2007 

12 August 2007

Sunday. What’re Sunday’s for? Football, that’s what! Sadly, I didn’t get to play in the second to last game of our football season. And, I think I’m glad. The pitch-side temperature according to reports was 104 degrees Farenheit. I’d have likely keeled over from that kind of heat. I did get to watch my Gunners play against Fulham though. A lovely 2-1 win at the Emirates to start the season. And that in spite of Lehmann’s howler at the 57 second mark. Had Arsenal lost, likely this would be a different photo. But, since they won, I figured a photo of the shirt I was wearing, a 2003 Arsenal away strip, might be appropriate. Of course, I wasn’t wearing it during the photo, but none-the-less, we’re calling it my lucky strip. At least for now. 2003 Arsenal Away Strip
