It was a glorious San Francisco summer morning today on the way in to work. This means it was 57 degrees and foggy. :P I really do like it, though, it makes me feel alive.
I finally watched the Home Run Derby yesterday and was mesmerized by Josh Hamilton. Now I understand what all the fuss was about. It was pretty awesome to hear all the fans chanting his name. :) Also, Grady Sizemore has totally replaced Alex Rios as the pretty now that Rios has that fuzzy thing on his face. Eww.
My roommate was the one all gung ho to get the electric piano and I was meh about it, but now I'm the one who's been playing an hour or so every night when I get home from work and she's barely touched it. She likes ragtime and bought a couple of songbooks, but they're a bit too advanced for her right now. I started playing Maple Leaf Rag and was like, oh I know this! It kinda' kicked my ass at first but I got the first part down somewhat decently. Also played more stuff from the Twin Peaks soundtrack, various Enya songs and really simple arrangements of The Rainbow Connection and Climb Ev'ry Mountain and other stuff. My neighbours probably hate me. :P
Now that the schedule is out, much planning can be done! Specifically when tamiflu visits. If she comes in October, it should still be warm in the city!
Didn't know that The Middleman was based on graphic novels. I'll have to check them out, although I don't know that the things that appeal to me about the TV show would be there in the comics. The soundtrack adds a lot to that groovy '60s feel. There's a copy at the library. Unfortunately, I still have $28.95 in library fines for never returning The Ballad of the Whiskey Robber. Oops!
