that's not what this post is really s'posed to be about, but that's still yay-able, this being my 300th post :)
baseball yesterday (red sox had the day off):
the royals played the mariners, couple of interesting things there: erik bedard was scratched from starting because of a "sore butt" (no joke, that's what ESPN said. really.), his replacement pitcher is another person who i need a phonetic spelling of their last name (it was jakubauskas or something like that), they were getting no-hitted while i was watching but they ended up winning 9-2, alex went 1 for 3 with a run scored on maier's inside-the-park home run.
as for the giants, they lost to japan 6-4, lincecum had 2 1/3 scoreless innings but gave up a hit (come on, that was only his 2nd of the preseason) and he was having some control issues towards the end with walking i think 3 or 4 in the outing. still very impressive, though.
awkward conversation department: the whole "all blue-eyed people are related" thing still strikes me as an interesting topic, but i made the mistake of putting my facebook status as i am "related to alex! :)". it conjured up an interesting and slightly awkward conversation between me and my aunt, mostly because i had to explain the whole article to her and after that she wondered why i'd want to be related to him because she figured i only liked him 'cause i wanted to pinch his butt (who does that?!?!) so i gotta be more careful about how i word things...
birthday post time! except not really 'cause it's the EGE's (aka david, of the amateur geek), and the only pictures i have of him for a picture post are kinda embarrassing from a pool party last summer, so i'll be a good friend and not risk getting punched for posting those pictures. however, i will commemorate the birthday with some pictures of the mandachan, since i haven't gotten around to it until now. take it easy today, birthday boy.
and for parting thoughts, i am a horrible marzipan maker. you know how it's s'posed to be all nice and white and formable? mine looks like oatmeal. tastes good, but it looks like oatmeal. i call it mazapán feo (because it really is "ugly marzipan")
