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!

teehee!

Still in love with David Nail's "Red Light". And am so proud that it's going up the charts right now. I can't wait until the album ("I'm About To Come Alive") comes out next month!

Work is--really good. We've been dealing with some news the past couple of weeks that has got us all a bit unnerved, and yet so hopeful. So far, the news is very, very good and we are remaining positive about it all. Plus, we had an amazing month of June business wise. Heh. We worked our butts off for it, that's for sure. But I seriously love all my co-workers and never fail to laugh and enjoy my job. It's nice. In fact, today, co-worker Tom and I were talking baseball. We like to give each other a hard time because I am a Giants fan and he is a Dodger (EVIL!) fan. And just--all of them--they're so fantastic. But we're all hoping for the final word to come down as to what is going on in the next few weeks.

And on another old work front, karma still continues to work in fantastic ways. And I may or may not have gloated just a bit when I got the news. Heh. I cannot confirm nor deny it. Really.

Then! Speaking of the Giants above, they are great this season. Dad and I have been to two games so far this season, and are going to the game in SF tomorrow night vs. the Padres. Timmy is pitching and I am so excited to see him again. Plus Aaron and Franny and Randy Winn, and the Panda! Ahh, my Pablo. We're so voting the boy in to the ASG this year dang it. We SF fans are voting for Sandoval, and Ian Kinsler of the Rangers for the AL. Heh. But yay for games. This will be another good time in San Francisco! Dad and I are leaving around noon and driving up to my beloved ballpark. I get to squee at the Timmy again. Meep.

Watched bits and pieces of the MJ memorial yesterday. John Mayer was brilliant as always, and Michael's gorgeous little daughter just broke my heart. Such a brave girl. I so wanted to just hug her! But overall, just kind of a sad event. I hope he's finally at peace.

Keith Urban concert in just over a week! So psyched to see him and Sugarland. I can't wait to hear "'Til Summer Comes Around" live. Gah! Excited for my fourth KU show.

Writing is fantastic. I'm up about 6,000 words for the year so far and it's kind of nice to feel accomplished. I have, however, slacked off on the novel. Sigh. It's so frustrating to be so easily distracted by the shiny, pretty things. (read: Chris Pine and Zach Quinto and various other shiny things!). But I seriously am vowing to get back into my story. I've revamped my cast list just a tad (damn you, Pine! Haha) and perhaps have a fresh mindset on a few things. Perhaps I did need the time away to revamp again. But I ahve to work more on it, or I'll never feel like I've accomplished what I was hoping to with this year-long writing challenge.

Randomly--I need a new moodtheme. I need to hunt down a Star Trek one, seriously.

Off to be relatively productive--and pack my bag to take to the house tomorrow. Must find all my orange and black gear. My jersey, my Timmy shirt (which I now want an Aaron Rowand one too!), my SF sweatshirt, and my self-knit scarf. Also need to paint my nails orange like I do for every game we go to.

Good night!

My Giants completed a three-game sweep of the Braves last night--something that pleased me immensely. Timmy was fantastic on Tuesday night, with 8 more K's. He's sitting at 499 for his career--which is only two years old. Bwah. Beat that. I'm such a Timmy fangirl, it's not even funny. PLUS, Randy Johnson got win #299 last night. He's so going to get #300 next week vs. the Nationals. But the boys are playing decently right now, and I lovelovelove that Aaron Rowand is kicking butt in the leadoff spot. He's hitting great, and he freakin' stole home last night! So proud. And my Franny, and Nate. Love them. Hee. We're sitting at .500 again, thank goodness.

I've been hooked on the Star Trek audiobook the last few days. Zachary Quinto does an amazing job and I love his different voices and inflections. But yeah, awesome audiobook. Also hooked on the Kris Allen/Keith Urban duet of "Kiss A Girl" from the AI finale. Heck, I'm also hooked on Kris' version of "Heartless" and Adam's "Mad World". They both (as people) amuse me highly.

Also addicted to David Nail and his new song "Red Light". I've been a fan of it for months anyway, but now it's really starting to hit radio airwaves and it rocks. His album comes out in July and I'm so excited. Anyone who calls Pat Monahan from Train one of the best male voices in music gets my support. No doubt.

The George Strait Artist of the Decade show was fantabulous last night. Keith singing the Marty Robbins medley was awesome. Plus, he actually knows how to freakin' dress for a tribute show. Suit AND tie. Sigh. Happy. Dierks Bentley was so cute and funny, and gah. I loved the entire thing and made the parents tape it for me at home. Hee.

The writing is really going well this month (as I keep saying, I'm sure...oy). I've kind of focused my attention on fun little pieces that are pretty mindless and that I don't keep anyway. But they're fun to putter with. Next month I vow to go back to working on the novel. Seriously diving back into it now that I've kind of reshuffled the characters. Which I still can't believe I did. I hope I don't end up regretting it.

Work is good. Am tired, but things are just so--good. It makes me happy to work again. Business is good and--yeah, can't complain.

Off to attempt being productive today. No, really.

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!

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. =)

Hee! GIP!

Because I could not resist the adorable that is this photo of my Timmy and Zito. Oy with the cute here, people.

The Timmeh getting his Cy Young Award in front of the Giants fans and his teammates. The YouTube video is even more adorable. The way his voice cracks and shakes a little when he thanks his dad just kills me. And the guy hugs from his team makes me smile and squeal. I don't think I've mentioned the Aaron Rowand and Randy Winn love lately either. LOVE, I say.

Baseball fangirl right here. And I sure as heck plan to be squealing at the Timmy on Saturday when the Dad and I go up to SF for the 1:05 game vs. the D-Backs. Lincecum is the starting pitcher. Excellent Game Timing: We're doing it right! Woohoo! I was secretly hoping to see Randy Johnson pitch, but alas, not this time. Maybe next time. But! Timmy!

I should NOT be awake right now. I should be in bed. However, floorset is in full gear and I've been at work 2:30-11 the last two nights and am all amped up. Meep. We're really a couple days behind, as people have called in sick left and right. We will catch up eventually. But I am looking forward to my three day weekend starting on Friday. Must reklax and knit. And write, Write, write, write! Despite missing a couple of days this month, I am still up on my word count. Yay! I may or may not have been writing silly baseball fic for my amusement,. But I need to get back to the novel. Must. Not. Give. Up.

I'm going to bed now. Really. And this so ended up NOT to be a GIP. Fail=Me.

Good night/morning!?

Hee! GIP!
