Change of Plans

I had been planning to go down to the White Sox vs. Red Sox game down at Comiskey today, but it's over 100 degrees, humid, and there's no shade where I'd be sitting. So I called Bob, my baseball buddy and audio pusher, who had provided the tickets this morning to tell him that I wasn't going to make it. "Thank God!" he replied. He hadn't wanted to disappoint me by not showing up, but he didn't want to go to the game in this heat either.

So daisy_knotwise and I had a nice breakfast at Chammps. I stopped at CompUSA on the way home and spent 20 bucks on an internal USB flash media reader, because it took me longer than I wanted to find the external one that plugs in (which can now go in the laptop case permanently). It's installed, Gretchen is sewing, and Sam and Bonnie will be here at the top of the hour to join us on an expedition to an air-conditioned theater that's showing Fantastic Four.

This should be much more pleasant.
