Where I Hang My Hat…
Figured I’d show you guys pictures of my condo. I think I’ve done this once before in my blog, but maybe not. Keep in mind I have nearly finished a two-year-long remodel of the place, so it’s not yet perfect. The bathroom is still a mess, so you don’t get to see that yet, at least on this page.
One more for Apple…
CJM has entered the fold of Apple Computer. It was a very exciting day for that segment of the population that are both Loafe readers and Mac users. Which is probably two people, including me. Maybe someday three, if The Squire ever caves. But he won’t. For the precise reason that him and I for some reason have to be on the opposite sides of practically everything. The funny thing is, most of the time it’s legitimate. But I’m willing to bet that 30% of the time one of us takes the opposite side of a debate just to keep the gig going.
Speaking of Apple, DellRumors.com traffic has substantially decreased after the initial popularity. Admittedly I don’t really update it all that much. But it’s hard to come up with realistic parodies so fast! Either way, if this trend continues, BrastenSager.com will pass DellRumors.com in web traffic sometime next month. THAT is actually fascinating to me.
Major League Baseball is Almost Here!
Anyone have any opinions on baseball? The Mariners first spring training game starts in 8 days, 17 hours… and I
- for one - can not wait. I’ve missed baseball! Something about having a Mariners game to listen to at work or go home to on TV just makes my life complete. :) As far as the Mariners chances? Well, there are people out there who probably know all the stats better than I do, but I don’t think anyone doubts they’ve made MASSIVE improvements from last season. Perhaps last season was a blessing in disguise, since it made management spend a lot of money this off season. I think it really comes down to the question marks in the rotation. If our pitchers are at the top of their game, I think we’ll be playoff contenders. If our pitching struggles, the Angels take the West, and with the Red Sox and Yankees slaughtering each other, whoever doesn’t win the AL East will capture the wild card, leaving no wild card for the Mariners. Either way I don’t expect a losing record, now that we have some decent thump in our lineup. If our pitching doesn’t hold together, look for an 81-81 record. Great pitching with our lineup should yield another 95-win season, but I’m expecting a 90-win season, with playoffs depending entirely on the Angels performance down the stretch.
Well, I didn’t hear anything from the company in Portland today. I realize it’s ridiculous to judge anything based on the first day after submitting a resume, but I’m still anxious. It would be so fun pick up a position in Portland, and this company seems great. And the location is perfect. Right in the middle of the Pearl District, which is where I would hopefully live. The Pearl District is very fun. Art galleries, little shops, restaurants, all intermingled with condo buildings. Check out this photo tour from ShopThePearl.com.
For what it’s worth, Portland is a great example of where ultra-Liberalism seems to have worked beautifully. I’m sure you all know that I’m not a liberal, BUT, every concept no matter how bad has it’s occasional successes, and Portland is liberalism’s success story. And I love it.
Well, I intentionally talked about pretty much everything on my mind. Now I can mark this post as belonging to every category on my blog! And it will likely be the only post ever to achieve that. (I don’t consider “Mobile” to be an official category since it’s more to designate an origination than it is a topic.) With all that said, I want to go home. So I’m going to. Catch you all later!
