Back to my blogging roots

The origins of this blog were humble, but worth revisiting. My very first blog post was prompted when I needed a way to show a few people a video I took at a minor league baseball game in California. My cousin Brianne and I had so much fun at the game, we've been talking about going again for the past year.

Last weekend, Brianne and I talked Jeff into going with us to our second Lake Elsinore Storm game. While the game was less than stellar (the Storm did everything they could to make sure their unworthy opponents won), the people watching and entertainment were first rate. Unfortunately, it was about 48 degrees and humid. Hot chocolate sounded a lot better than cotton candy. There was no Asian unicycle-riding-rice-bowl tosser. But, there was a man in a giant bunny suit who made an appearance in right field. Not to mention the concessions guy with a Wonka hat and a goatee Colnel Sanders would have been proud of. And, the best part of all -- the completely indescribably mascot. I'm still not sure what that thing is.

Can't wait for the next time!

Is she hiding under a rock or something?

This is the question I've been asked by more than a few people who were addicted to (ok, just mildly amused by) my blog over the past few months. I haven't been hiding under a rock. Just taking a looong break.

If you want to know the truth ... I have no computer at home. Gasp! Yes, it's true. For the past several years my employers have provided laptops, so when my last personal one gave up the ghost, I didn't replace it. Unfortunately, the current employer is ignoring my pleas for a laptop (but I do have a shiney, happy Mac on my desk). I've been avoiding buying my own in hopes that one day soon, said employer will have a change of heart.

I know. Some will say this is no excuse at all. But that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I'm not even going to attempt to fill in the past few months. I'm just going to jump back in -- posting my random thoughts on the universe.
