I'm waiting for the dishwasher repairman to come (they always show up in the last half-hour of that four-hour window, don't they?) so I don't want to get into a project or long post or good book or anything. So I turned on the béisbol game and saw the Gnats win with a homer simpson in the bottom of the ninth to tie the series with some faceless midwestern team. I didn't care who won since I don't have a cur in that fracas, but I thought it was nice that now maybe arrete can stop complaining so much.

Anyone else want to see a cross-Bay series, SF vs. Oakland? I've got a baseball cap I bought in NYC in 2000 that commemorates the subway series of that year. I'd have to get me one for the Bay series to close the loop.

Earlier today we finished the online application to change all our insurance policies from Farmers to Amica, for a savings of over $1,100 per year. I don't know how Farmers can stay in business with the prices of their policies. Oh, wait -- I remember now. It's because of idiots who don't shop around. Amica costs a few bucks more than AAA but the deciding factor was the earthquake deductible -- 10% for Amica and 15% for AAA. Since the most likely event to cause damage to our dwelling is the Big One, that 5% difference could translate into some real bucks, not to mention some real doe.

YES!!! ME, ME, ME, ME.

Grew up in California for 10 years, fondly remember the swinging A's of Catfish Hunter, Vida Blue, Joe Rudy, and Reggie Jackson. Then moved to NW La where the Giants had their AA team. Fun to watch players here move up to the bigs.

And yes, I have a cap from '89 World Series, 1/2 A's and 1/2 Giants.

Nice to hear you getting some beisbol time (imagine the accent). Unfortunately my team underwent a meltdown in the last 2 weeks of epic proportions. So I can't really share in the joy of the playoffs. I'll watch some soccer to make up for it.
