Someone stole my Obama yard sign. I was so excited to get my sign because I live at a relatively busy intersection and I wanted everyone to see it as they drove by. I even took a picture of it and put it on my blog. But some jerk came along in the dark of night and snatched it up. I’ve seen McCain/Palin signs and you don’t see me absconding with them. (Even though I want to run them over with my car) It really aggravates me that it’s gone and not because I paid for it but because it was on my lawn. I owned that sign and it was my property. It’s theft.
On a lighter note, Canadian and American researchers have discovered that Flatulence’s stink may be linked to lower blood pressure. I discovered this when Kim from Trapped in a Comma was telling some of our co-workers about the story and, of course, my name came up. After all, I do have high blood pressure and I have been known to let out a toot every now and then. I was so excited that I made a vow to start lowering my blood pressure as soon as possible. And since I had bean soup for lunch, I figured it would be very soon. Erin from Laughs and Rants from My Inner Child immediately put in a request for a desk change or a gas mask, whichever was easier. As a matter of fact, I’ve lowered my blood pressure at least two points while I was typing this post. As a side note, I feel confident that my dogs will NEVER have high blood pressure.
I saved the best for last and I figured that if there were any SITS out there who were sick of sports, they could stop reading here. THE PHILLIES ARE THE 2008 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!!! After what was a very aggravating rain delay, the Phils pulled it out last night and won the game. I was over at Scott and Sean’s house with a bunch of our friends and we all went nuts. We could hear people in the streets honking their horns and since Philly is only 10 minutes away, we could hear the fireworks. We had friends who were actually in Philadelphia for the crazy mayhem party that occurred as soon as the Phils won. The parade starts tomorrow and my boss and some coworkers are going to it. I don’t have any time left so I won’t be going, but I’ll be there in spirit. It’s going to be a party 28 years in the making. As a side note, I actually have a program book from the 1980 Phil’s World Series games. It’s sealed and wrapped up safely in my closet.
