Relatively early Saturday

It is really nice outside. The mercury has dropped, the sun is shining, and there is zero chance of any more rain. It poured over the eastern half of Kansas yesterday, so much so that it forced the suspension of numerous high school football games in western Missouri, and the Royals-Twins game at Kauffman Stadium had a rain delay of 3 hours, 35 minutes. It ended at 2:15 this morning on Eric Hosmer’s game-winning single as Kansas City won in 11 innings 5-4.

I want to make a drive east today. In the past, I would have stayed up all night and left before sunrise. Today, I slept until 5:55 (I went to bed at 9:30 last night), watched some more of The O.C., and finally got in the shower at 8:55. I’m almost ready to go, but I wanted to update the blog and download some new music to the iPod for the drive. I have to get gas before I leave Russell.

Most Saturdays, I used to sleep until a ridiculously late hour. Last Saturday, I was groggy the whole day because I took a Seroquel tablet the night before. I’ve learned now I sleep well enough only with the machine, and taking Seroquel will only aggravate me for the next day.

No Buffalo Wild Wings today. There’s a major UFC card tonight, and I do not like being there when fights are going on. It gets nuts. I thought about going over Tuesday, but the weather looks iffy. Next Friday looks like a much better day, as does Saturday. And if I’ve got work that needs to get done this week, better I’m here.

God my wall clock is 6-7 minutes fast. Maybe that’s too much. Then again, it gives me a sense of urgency to get things done.
