1:40 EDT.  And I worked all day, so, no nap for me.  But, there is a shower, an early supper, and a date with my pillow in the near future.

I actually never made it to a nap either, so I'm seeing bed in my future within about 90 minutes

Crazy. I was at a concert and my phone kept alerting me to score changes. I muttered "This game is still going?!" on several occasions between bands.  ;D

I guess we missed the "best game evah" here. When I went to bed it was 4-4 I think. A co-worker of mine got tickets to the game - apparently she went to school with Altuve's wife, and Altuve went to school with her brother, so she got tickets for a lot cheaper than normal. Said she didn't get home until 3am and then came to work Monday. That's dedication.

Me, I'm very amused at the number of bandwagon fans they suddenly have, and how many stores are joining them in selling Astros crap.

I know. Good on you. I just don't like Houston in general (the city, that is).

I mean, good for them, but I've gotten so much more cynical the older I've gotten, especially about sports. My life doesn't change if they win or lose. I get it's a point of civic pride, but I don't have much pride in Houston. I can't stand this place.

You do have a say in that, y'know....

All of them? No idea. Not sure there's a U-Haul that's affordable enough for that.  :buck2:
