It is officially Saturday.
Game 1 of the World Series is TONIGHT.
I just spent the past four or five hours watching ESPN, doodling crappy uniform designs for the new Washington team (formerly the Expos), and cruising around SoSH.
Tomorrow I need to do homework during the day (drawing finals, arrrgh! I need to load Maya somehow, arrgh!), watch the Michigan game at 3:30, and maybe do laundry. And vacuum. Definitely, definitely vacuum.
I have to remember to sleep. I have to remember to eat. I have to remember that fingernails do not count as meals.
I have to do all of this knowing full well that Tim Wakefield is pitching tonight, and Mirabelli will be catching, which is good, because lord knows Varitek was having trouble catching Wake's knuckleballs and we can't afford that tonight, but it's bad, because Mirabelli can catch but he's not nearly as sure a bat or as fast a runner as Varitek is, nor is he a team leader like Tek, and the Cardinals hitters are scary, and they can field the ball like woah, and and and. Man. I really need to vacuum.
I suppose I should go clear the stuff off my bed and sleep, or at least make a vague pretense of sleeping. I'm reasonably certain that I took an unintentional nap sometime around 4 or 5 pm today, which would partially explain why I am so twitchingly awake right now. Of course, the whole 'World Series' thing isn't helping matters. At all.
Oh, and in case anyone in the vast reaches of the Internet cares, here are the designs I worked up for the Washington team. Let me explain. As I see it, the team ought to be named the Senators. That's what they were back when DC originally had a baseball team, and I see no reason why the name shouldn't be reinstated. They've got to have classic jerseys, none of this bizarre 'tank top style' thing. They can't have garish colors or weird, stylized critter logos. Those things work OK in Florida or California, but not for a team playing out of Washington.
At least, that's how I see it.
Washington Senators home uniform.
Senators away uniform.
Where in the world did that logo handwriting come from? That is so unlike my handwriting that it's scary. I have no idea how that came out of a pen attached to my hand.
