I care almost nothing about sports, but I do listen to a weekly sports podcast (I'm a podcast whore) and had heard about Dallas Braden of the Oakland A's getting upset at A-Rod of the Yankees over some supposed breach of etiquette by crossing the pitcher's mound last week. This week the same podcast pointed out a hilarious graphic with the pitcher's mound called "Bradenia" as an "autonomous region of Oakland Athletica," "Monarch: King Dallas I," "Population: 1," "Visa Requirements: Not Being A-Rod." XDXD;;
I also liked the tidbit that the guy who makes the graphics is a British dude who'd gotten addicted to baseball watching it on MBL online while avoiding his ex-girlfriend with whom he still lived with in Germany.
I tend not to take care of my car. As long as it runs I'm good, so I don't get it washed very often. This past Sunday I noticed lots of bird poop on the hood when I filled the gas tank, so I got it washed at a fundraising car wash. I took my mom out to a very mediocre dinner with an awesome view* for Mother's Day, but it resulted in a HUGE bird poop right on my hood again. I only got to appreciate a clean car for, like, a couple of hours! And since bird poop isn't good for the finish I suppose I'll have to get it washed again. GAR
* I knew that it wasn't a great restaurant but I'd read online that if you asked for the lanai it had a great view of the sunset, so I decided to go with that instead of going for a really tasty place. The food (Japanese) was worse than I'd expected. I...could've done better, especially considering the price. But the view! The view! It was on the far end of Waikiki, right on the beach. So you could see the curve of Waikiki beach and the rest of the south coast of Oahu from the lanai. The sound of the ocean was soothing, the sunset was lovely, the twinkling of the lights on the airplanes taking off and landing in the twilight was delightful, and the lights of the hotels and the rest of the island as it got darker was A++. Too bad the night ended in discovering the bird poop. :P
