Lindsy sent out an email the other day that reminded me of the Seinfeld where George constantly acts ticked off at work. Eventually, Mister Wilhelm tells him to take some time off because he must be working too hard. This actually works.
Tennis with the Cap'n
Cap'n Carl (new nickname) and I went and hit some tennis mid-afternoon yesterday. We decided to play over in my borough for a change. I had not visited the tennis courts here in several years. Well, it appears that I may very well have been the last person to actually play on these courts. The nets were sagging like an old woman who hasn't exercised in thirty years. There were cracks so big you could lose a small kid in them. (Hmm, I'm thinking apartment-wide field trip to the tennis courts!) And on one side the fence was leaning outward at about a fifteen degree angle. It was like some sort of tennis museum. Tennis in the Mesozoic era. I kept looking to see "Rod Laver wuz here" written somewhere on the concrete. Nevertheless, we got some sun, which was the main point of the outing.
I hate to see someone settle for something or do something because they think they have no other choice, or that this is the best they can do. Why do people stay with or go back to someone who has basically treated them like dog vomit? This goes for life, too, not just relationships. Have a little confidence. Expect the most from yourself. Take me, for instance. I mean, when I started this blog, I didn't know the first thing about a subject as fundamental as... risk management. And now. Well, hmmm. I guess I still don't. Eh, I forgot my point.
I hope you all have a super-terrific weekend! Last Friday, I heard "Word Up" by Cameo on the radio, and that really set the weekend off to a good start. This morning, I heard another classic, from Dexy's Midnight Runners. Come on, Eileen!
EDIT: Actually, I probably won't be going anywhere this weekend. Gas is now $2.49 a gallon for low grade, so I can't afford to go anywhere. It has gone up 23 cents since last Thursday. How much is it where you live?
