I watched the game with Bill the bear and Ricardo up at a place called Brickhouse near Bill's house. It's a pretty awesome sports bar (and a national chain) and it was packed. Interestingly, Ricardo left at half-time like many of the patrons. Bill and I stayed until the end though and had a pretty good time cheering on the Bears and generally being obnoxious......well, it was mostly me being obnoxious.
Can't tell you how awesome our wedding gifts are to use everyday. The glasses, bowls, plates, pots and pans with which I cook are outstanding. The knives are great and sharp and the silverware is substantial. Every once in a while I just remember how awesome that stuff is.
LL is in the middle of a Sunday to Sunday training session which means she's got to be in the office at 8 a.m. and stays there until close to 7 or later which means she leaves by 7 a.m. and gets home closer to 8 p.m. That's a long day. So today I cook dinner for her and made one of her favorite desserts: sweet ripe plantains in a brown sugar sauce over ice cream. Just delicious. Just trying to make her day a little more pleasant.
And we have communication from Benny Baseball!! His email correspondence was limited, but did let us know that he'll be re-entering society sometime in the next month or so. Yay for those of us who count him as a friend.
