Leaving it behind

In a few minutes, I’m going to do something I’ve hardly done the last month and a half.

I’m going to leave my computer in the basement in Russell. The iPhone will be enough for my trip to Phillipsburg. I’ll have it fully charged and the car charger can get me out of a pinch.

I’ve been taking the computer into Buffalo Wild Wings because it helps me keep up with things if I’m bored playing trivia or staying for a long time. The only problem with my Alienware laptop is the battery life stinks, so I ‘m tethered to a table with a power outlet near it. I need a laptop with more battery life, or an iPad.

I’m going to miss the first half of the Auburn-Kansas State football game tonight, but I’m not that concerned. There are nights where I really don’t care to watch much sports. It gets repetitive after awhile, although I’m sure I’ll listen to the radio broadcast on the drive back, simply because there isn’t much else on. The Buccaneers and Falcons play the NFL’s Thursday game. No thanks. If Atlanta doesn’t win easily, shame on it.

I don’t believe this weather. It’s 80 degrees outside. And the meteorologists are predicting close to 90 tomorrow. Sheesh. I wore long sleeves for each of the first two games, and now I’m going to be in shorts tomorrow night? I thought it was supposed to go the other way, but Mother Nature has her own schedule.

This will be the first time I’ll see Phillipsburg play this year. I was supposed to watch them at Smith Center two weeks ago, but my camera malfunctioned and I went home before their first match started. The Panthers’ varsity hasn’t played in nine days, and now they have a five-set match against a team from Nebraska which is usually a solid unit, but had a tough 2013 campaign.

I’m still on the fence about going to Buffalo Wild Wings this weekend. Part of me really wants to, but another part says no, hold off. I’m confused. And conflicted.

About David

Louisiana native living in Kansas. New Orleans born, LSU graduate. I have Asperger’s Syndrome, one toe less than most humans, addictions to The Brady Bunch, Lifetime movies, Bluey, most sports, food and trivia. Big fan of Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, New Orleans Saints, Montreal Canadiens. Was a big fan of Quebec Nordiques until they moved to Denver. My only celebrity crush is NFL official Sarah Thomas. I strongly dislike LSU fans who think Alabama is its biggest rival, warm weather, steaks cooked more than rare, hot dogs with ketchup, restaurants without online ordering, ranch dressing, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Alex Ovechkin, Barry Bonds, Putin, his lover in Belarus, North Korean dictators, Venezuelan dictators, all NHL teams in the south (especially the Lightning and Panthers), Brooklyn Nets and Major League Soccer.
