First Sign of Spring  
Baseball tickets on sale! However, I am in a circling pattern as there seems to be heavy traffic online. The brilliant minds that scheduled spring training at Tradition Field neglected to take those who work during the day into consideration as there are no night games! Because of this, we'll only be taking in 2 games instead of the regular 3.

To get my Tennant fix, I've begun to listen to some of his audiobooks that I've had sitting in iTunes for months. Right now it's The Merlin Conspiracy by Diana Wynne Jones. It takes place in an alternate world (well, a number of them) where magic exists. It's told by two different point of view and David narrates one. I just love his voice and the favorites for me so far are Hyde (when drunk) and Minnie the Elephant.

Oh for the Firefly fans, I was watching The Mentalist Thursday and our own Sean Maher was on! "It's Simon!" I cried.

{I've so far been waiting 20 minutes for tickets. OK, now it's "technical difficulties" and of course the phone lines are busy}

Baseball! Yay!! Our pitchers and catchers report Feb. 14. I'm so excited for baseball to start, especially after our pathetic football season. My mom and I have never been to Spring Training, but we are ordering our season tickets for the Reading Phillies. I miss baseball so much.

Hey!
We're gonna miss spring training, I think. Bummer about the lack of night games, what's up with that? And I was just thinking about Sean Maher and wondering what had become of him.

The book quote from Brave New World, yes?

1. I always thought it was "I don't want to go out, I want to stay in". Shows what I know. "Modern Love" by Bowie.
2. "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted? "
3. "Original Sin" INXS
4. "MLK" U2

Did you get tickets??

Very good on the quote. I am impressed. Yes for the songs you got too. #5 was some 80s pop I put on in the hopes that someone else could get something too. :)

Yes, I got tickets for 2 games v.marlins and cardinals and both are right behind 1st base, row b for one game and row c for the other.
