A very late night post just to gush about baseball a bit. As most people know, I was born and raised a San Francisco Giants fan. I will always be a Giants fan, no matter what they do in a season. HOWEVER, this season has been absolutely incredible. Not only did we win the National League West, but the NL Division Series, then the NL Championship Series (beat THAT, Philly!), and we're now in the World Series, up 2 games to 1 vs. the Texas Rangers. Gah! We kicked their butts in SF, and now we're gonna bring it all home. Seriously.

I don't even think I could gush enough about my boys. From Timmy to Matt Cain, to Buster Posey(see icon), to Aubrey Huff, to Cody Ross (the Boss!!). And then my Aaron...oh, my beloved Aaron. He may have struggled this season, but when it matters, the man comes to freakin' play. Which leads me into the next thing...

The Dad and I actually went to Game 2 of the World Series in San Francisco last Thursday night. And I swear, it was the most amazing experience of my life! We had awesome, upper lever seats, surrounded by awesome other fans. We got to see Lady Antebellum perform the National Anthem, a home run by Edgar Renteria, and the Giants take the Rangers bullpen for a freakin' ride in the 8th inning. We scored 7 runs that inning, leading us to an eventual 9-0 win. We sang along with Steve Perry (who was there in the crowd, leading everyone in song), and generally had THE most amazing time. Plus, my Aaron hit a huge two out, two run stand-up triple. I may have lost my voice screaming for him in that moment. Seriously. Matt Cain is a freakin' workhorse (and I adore him), and the boys were just terrific.

I really can't get over that we got to go to a WS game. I will never, ever forget it, and I get a little teary just thinking about the whole experience, especially that I got to go with my dad, who raised me to be this Giants fanatic. Heh.

So here's to my favorite boys...regardless of what happens the rest of the Series, I am so proud to be a fan of these guys, the best group of misfits ever. Lovelovelove!

I'm so looking forward to tonight's MLB All-Star Game. My Timmeh is the NL starting pitcher (rightfully so!) and will probably pitch two innings. I'm so proud of that boy! And proud of Matt Cain too, even though he won't be able to pitch tonight after being hit by a line drive last week. But Timmy will do a great job tonight and I can't wait to see his introduction! Eeee!

And baseball---oh, my beloved baseball. Last Thursday, the Dad and I went to SF for the Giants/Padres game. Watched TImmy take a no-hitter to the 7th inning, saw Molina, Ishikawa, and Uribe hit home runs, and had an amazing time. THEN! The next night, Friday--Jonathan Sanchez pitched the first no-hitter in the Major Leagues all season. God, I was so beyond proud. (even though Dad and I missed seeing it in person by one day!) After the terrible season he's had so far, he gets tossed back into the rotation after being demoted to the bullpen and after Randy Johnson gets hurt--and he throws a no-hitter. It's beyond awesome, and he deserves the credit so very much. And my beloved Aaron Rowand freakin' saved the game with his AMAZING catch in the 9th inning. I have unholy love for that man, let me tell you. And all the hugs and the tears from Jonathan's father, who was watching his son for the first time as a starter in the majors. What a story. Sob. I've cried a lot watching the footage and looking at the photos from Friday night. Meep.

And the week has just gotten better! I got an email yesterday form the head fan club guy (Luke), with the Keith Urban fan club, and I was picked to work the fan club booth at the concert on Friday night. Yay! I'm one of the Customs Agents, and get to stamp my fellow Monkeys' passports/scrapbook pages before the show starts. Color me psyched. I never thought I'd get picked, so I was really surprised to get the email yesterday afternoon. I'm so looking forward to seeing Keith again and seeing Sugarland. Plus, I'm taking my dad, the best date ever. Heh.

Am out at the parents' house dog sitting while the mom and dad are on a two day vacation. I'll be doing the same next week when they go to who knows where. Haha. Speaking of said dogs, Dawson is at my feet attempting to get me to play. He just might sucker me in.

Writing still good. May have agreed to co-write and edit a book with a friend. We'll see what comes of that! I couldn't believe I was even asked, but I agreed readily. Looking forward to it, if it comes to fruition!

Off to attempt being productive before the game starts at 5. Yippee!

Well, bullet point post, if you will. With expanded notes. Ha.

*Loving Twitter. Totally made a reply to Barry Zito tonight. Um. Love. Am over there as heartisopen if anyone wants to add me! But the Twitter thing is kind of amusing!

*Loving baseball this season. My boys came from behind in the 9th to win tonight. Little Panda hit a 3-run homer to win it. I do heart the Pablo. We're only 3 games back now. Bite me, Dodgers! (and on that same note, bite me, Casey Blake. Jerk. Don't even mess with my B. Wilson.) And my Timmeh! Wearing pink accented spikes on Mother's Day. Undying devotion. No, really. Loooooove.

*Movies! The parents and I went to see Star Trek on Sunday. Absolutely LOVED it. I never watched the show(s) as a kid, but dear lord, this movie rocked. Plus, Chris Pine is way hot--guh. And the adorable-ness that is Chris and Zachary Quinto in every freakin' interview they do together makes me grin like crazy. In addition: two words--Karl Urban. I love him to little tiny pieces. He is still awesome. Makes me miss the LotR days, though!

*TV! My red-haired boyfriend made me a bit teary on Monday. DC still rocks. CSI: NY will likely make me cry this week if what I think happens happens! NCIS is love, and Tony owns me. Really.

*Music: Completely in love with Luke Bryan's new single "Do I". Co-written by Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, and backup vocal by Hillary Scott (all of Lady Antebellum). Also adoring the new duet from Josh Kelley and Ryan Cabrera: "Tell It Like It Is". And on the Keith Urban front, rumor has it that the possible next single is "'Til Summer Comes Around". I will squeal for DAYS if this ends up being true. Best song on the album, I tell you! So much good music lately--I love new music to add to Timmy the Pod.

*Work. Work is good. I'm really tired, but things are good. DD visit next week and we're brushing up on visuals. I am struggling a bit on the visual standard front, but I think it'll be resolved soon. Otherwise, business is good and I am simply enjoying where I am. I'm so much more at ease--something I probably haven't felt in a year or so.

*Writing. Writing is decent. I've kind of gotten away from the novel in the last few weeks or so, but I am gradually getting back into the groove on that. I am puttering on little baseball snippets still, and trying to write the beginning of the Tony/Hannah relationship. Also the beginning of the DiNozzo family and how Horatio Caine comes into play there. Heh. He is godfather to their son and daughter, after all. *ponders* Am also going through celeb photos, rearranging my cast list for the novel and adding a few photos to go with names. I think I'm actually considering recasting my lead male character (currently cast as Dave Annable from Brothers and Sisters). I probably won't actually go through with it, but I like to have the options!

*Misc. Things: Am looking to switch phone plans. I am most likely going to switch to Sprint in the next couple of weeks. I can get on my dad's plan from his work and save some money on the bill. I just have to pick a new phone and that is a major challenge. I may go for the Blackberry, but we shall see. I get so indecisive. Heh. May pick the Palm Treo or the Instinct. It'll be weird not using AT&T for my cell, that's for sure.

Going to bed soon. Really I am. I might actually sleep in tomorrow morning, since I have the day off. Or I'll be up early, because my brain starts waking up at like, 7 am. Not cool.

Good night.

First off, karma is a real you-know-what, and I am still laughing. And going to a very hot, fire-y place, but still. I'm laughing.

Second, the company I work for is a sponsor of, and supplier of gear/clothing for a current summit of Mount Everest. We are all following the First Ascent Blog daily, watching our teams make their way up the mountain. It's so cool and exciting.

It's been a busy couple of weeks. Our store manager has been on vacation in Singapore, and our asst. manager and myself have been running the place. Things went very, very well, and we got some praise from our DD. Color us pleased. But business has been really good, and things are plugging along. We're in the middle of floorset right now, and after work last night, a couple of us went out for pancakes. Haha. It was nice being with some friends and just kind of hanging out.

Work tonight, and then have the next two days off, plus this weekend off. Yay! I'm going to refocus on my knitting. My looms have been badly neglected this past week. I'm working on a blue blanket for my mom and the spare bedroom at the house. It's turning out well so far, and I've also made three scarves (blue, turquoise, and hot pink). I plan on starting a long yellow one this week. I've got yarn galore now, and it's so much fun. I love it.

My baseball season is rocking right along. My Timmy is amazing again this season, and Zito has been fantastic the last two starts. Randy got his 297th win the other night, and the people went crazy! It's awesome to see the orange and black support for Johnson, now that's he's one of us. I am addicted to reading his Twitter every day. Hee. I miss Brian Wilson's, though--stupid reporters trying to cause crap. B's Twitter was funny. Bastards. Hmph. My Giants are not completely sucking, and I am excited. It WILL be a good season. Timmy just makes me so darn proud to be a fan, let me tell you. So adorable. My complete and utter baseball crush. There's also Jack, but he's now in Philly, and that makes me sad. But I still love him to pieces, and I miss him in our clubhouse. =(

Hit my word count for the fourth month in a row. I'm so happy writing this year. I wrote a little bit of Tony/Hannah yesterday--something I hadn't done in awhile. It was nice to go back to an old favorite. The novel is still going well, but I admit to slacking off on it the last couple of weeks. To be honest, I've been puttering on baseball fic, much to my chagrin.

I'm afraid I may be leaning toward starting up a Twitter account. If only to follow Zito and John Mayer. Heh. We shall see. It'll also depend on whether I decide to swap my phone out for a Blackberry with AT&T, or switch to Sprint and get an awesome other phone through my dad's school. I'm not sure yet. I'd get an iPhone, but I already have my iPod Touch, and what's the point in basically having two of the same device?!

Finished the new Nora Roberts book the other day. It's going to be a fantastic set of four stories. Vision in White was wonderful, and I can't wait for the next three books. I love new stories.

Things are--good right now. Am happy. And now, off to take a shower. The boss (heh) called and asking if I could come in early and be on a conference call with her. We're in the middle of transitioning to a new computer system and everyone but me is confused by it. I've kind of been put in charge of the teaching of said system, and this conference call should give me some more info to pass on. Woohoo.

Hope you all have a good Monday!

Awesome.

I'd get an iPhone, but I already have my iPod Touch, and what's the point in basically having two of the same device?!

Finished the new Nora Roberts book the other day. It's going to be a fantastic set of four stories. Vision in White was wonderful, and I can't wait for the next three books. I love new stories.

Things are--good right now. Am happy. And now, off to take a shower. The boss (heh) called and asking if I could come in early and be on a conference call with her. We're in the middle of transitioning to a new computer system and everyone but me is confused by it. I've kind of been put in charge of the teaching of said system, and this conference call should give me some more info to pass on. Woohoo.

Hope you all have a good Monday!

Awesome.

First off, karma is a real you-know-what, and I am still laughing. And going to a very hot, fire-y place, but still. I'm laughing.

Second, the company I work for is a sponsor of, and supplier of gear/clothing for a current summit of Mount Everest. We are all following the First Ascent Blog daily, watching our teams make their way up the mountain. It's so cool and exciting.

It's been a busy couple of weeks. Our store manager has been on vacation in Singapore, and our asst. manager and myself have been running the place. Things went very, very well, and we got some praise from our DD. Color us pleased. But business has been really good, and things are plugging along. We're in the middle of floorset right now, and after work last night, a couple of us went out for pancakes. Haha. It was nice being with some friends and just kind of hanging out.

Work tonight, and then have the next two days off, plus this weekend off. Yay! I'm going to refocus on my knitting. My looms have been badly neglected this past week. I'm working on a blue blanket for my mom and the spare bedroom at the house. It's turning out well so far, and I've also made three scarves (blue, turquoise, and hot pink). I plan on starting a long yellow one this week. I've got yarn galore now, and it's so much fun. I love it.

My baseball season is rocking right along. My Timmy is amazing again this season, and Zito has been fantastic the last two starts. Randy got his 297th win the other night, and the people went crazy! It's awesome to see the orange and black support for Johnson, now that's he's one of us. I am addicted to reading his Twitter every day. Hee. I miss Brian Wilson's, though--stupid reporters trying to cause crap. B's Twitter was funny. Bastards. Hmph. My Giants are not completely sucking, and I am excited. It WILL be a good season. Timmy just makes me so darn proud to be a fan, let me tell you. So adorable. My complete and utter baseball crush. There's also Jack, but he's now in Philly, and that makes me sad. But I still love him to pieces, and I miss him in our clubhouse. =(

Hit my word count for the fourth month in a row. I'm so happy writing this year. I wrote a little bit of Tony/Hannah yesterday--something I hadn't done in awhile. It was nice to go back to an old favorite. The novel is still going well, but I admit to slacking off on it the last couple of weeks. To be honest, I've been puttering on baseball fic, much to my chagrin.

Had an awesome Saturday afternoon in San Francisco with Dad. We had perfect seats at AT&T Park in the Arcade section, just over in right center field. Had a perfect view of my #33, Aaron Rowand, who made a terrific throw from center to keep the baserunner at first. Bwahaha. He's lucky he hadn't run, or he'd have been out by miles.

Timmy was amazing--just amazing. 8 innings, 13 strikeouts, no walks. He was absolutely on fire all day, and I was so proud of him. What an incredible pitching job on his part. It's unfortunate that his bullpen couldn't keep it together (I'm looking at YOU, Affeldt and Wilson) and the offense couldn't win it for him.

Granted, I have to give credit to the DBacks' starting pitcher (Davis, I think it was?). He was excellent as well, and impressed me immensely. A great pitcher for Arizona, that's for sure. I hope he does well the rest of the season too.

But yeah, it was so great to see Timmy pitch again and really get his groove back. He makes me so proud, seriously. Now, if only he'd cut the hair! sob.

Got a bit sunburned, even wearing SPF 50. Gah. Side of my face is a bit pink, and on my arms. You can tell where my watch goes, and where my yellow LiveStrong wristband goes. lol. BUT! I did not burn my ears this time, so there is some success. Speaking of sun, we're in the middle of a heat wave type thing here in California, and it sucks. Summer is going to suck this year. I weep, man.

Oh! Randy Johnson freakin' rocked today. Took a no-hitter to the 7th inning, man. What a terrific performance! I'm so pleased he's in orange and black and that he'll get win #300 with us. Hee. And on another game note from today--Barry Zito needs to stand in the dugout ALL the dang time on his off days wearing sexy shades and with no hat on. Um. Meep? Guh. Model hot.

I love spending time with the Dad. We had a good day yesterday, and Sam the Saturn drove beautifully as always. Spent all day today at home with the Mom. She got me more yarn for my knitting projects. I am working on a blanket for her right now in two different shades of blue. I finished my hot pink scarf last week. I love this knitting thing!

On the writing front, I am surprisingly still on track for my word count goal for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. Have admittingly not been working on the novel or Reasons Why in the last week or so, but puttering on baseball fanfic. Good lord, that is so sad. They're just little snippets that no one will ever see but me, but it's been kind of fun.

Had a three day weekend from work, and go back tomorrow morning. The boss is leaving on Tuesday for two weeks in Singapore to meet up with her military husband, so I'm in charge. Whee! May end up slacking off on the writing, but I am so going to try not to.

Oy. I am vowing to go to bed right after Brothers and Sisters ends at 11, but I am not holding out much hope. =)

Heh!

Huh. I should go to bed, and yet, I am not overly tired.

Still nothing on the job front. Sigh. I'm getting frustrated and more worried, but I will eventually prevail! I know this.

On the up side, my muse is coming back slowly, and I've written close to 1000 words in the last two days on a novel plot. I wrote two full scenes and puttered on a third, and what's funny is that it seems to really be coming together. I even have photos chosen for a few characters, and on the hunt for a few more. Woohoo.

Utterly addicted to Jon McLaughlin's new album "OK Now". It's phenomenal and I adore him! The mom and I both bought copies on Tuesday and I can't stop listening to it. I love new music!

The dad and I are going to Reedley on Saturday morning to watch his 7th and 8th graders play football. Should be a good time. Heh. Am going to spend the weekend with the parents and wash towels and sheets and things (as my washing machine is very small at my place).

Made a baseball themed wallpaper for my computer today. 'Tis my beloved Timmy, of course. Heh. He just makes me smile. Speaking of baseball, I LOVE Philadelphia, man. I really do. Cole Hamels is my temporary boyfriend. Hahahah. I kid, but he's adorable and once he settled in, he rocked. Go Philly. *g*

Also? CSI made me sob. It's the first time I've watched it in a long time, and man. It was awesome. That's really all I can say, and I plan to watch the ep again while at the parents house this weekend. Meep.

Yeah. The bed calls now. As does my big fuzzy blanket, because it's getting freakin' cold at night! The oversized stuffed monkey sitting on my bed also calls to me. Hee.

Good night.
