2. I finally got my hands on the new Loose Fur album, and HOLY SHIT it's fantastic. My fondness for the first album is really just limited to "Chinese Apple" and "Elegant Translation"; this new album is consistently brilliant from start to finish. And the opener, "Hey Chicken", is just fucking FUN.
3. jongre tomorrow night; DVR installation Saturday followed by either a Good Evening rehearsal OR a birthday dinner for Mike; Sunday is either the GE rehearsal we didn't have Saturday or a horizontal day of loungeness. Or possibly a long-ish puppy walk.
4. It's wayyyy too early to make a judgment call on the Yankees - the offense will obviously be murder on mediocre pitching, but our pitching isn't totally together yet either and I've got no idea how we'll be doing against good teams. One thing's become pretty obvious, though - if you walk them, they will score.
4a. This being my first time in a rotisserie-style fantasy baseball league, I'm still not totally sure how the scoring works - but it's cool to see how it fluctuates on a day-by-day basis. My team's got a lot of holes, though, and I'm doubtful I'll be able to patch it up correctly.
5. Starting to re-read "The Blind Assassin", which I had put down a few months ago for an unknown reason; I'm enjoying the hell out of it now.
