“Breaking the silence” or “Potpourri”

I guess it’s time to break the silence.

I’ve neglected to post the past few days simply because I wanted to keep my intro message up top for a day or two to catch late respondents to my invitation. But enough is enough. The blog must move on.

I haven’t done much true “blogging” but have been quite reflective in my first few weeks. I could again be reflective because I of course of stuff on my mind to journal about, but I’ll save that for another time.

So here are a bunch of random thoughts:

STILLAFAN: How in the world did the Lions manage to win their final preseason game vs. Buffalo? Have you checked the stats? A true miracle indeed…

BACKTOBACK?: Fantasy football season is just around the corner…along with the regular NFL season. I’m pumped… I’m the defending FF champ in two of my three leagues… I bought four tickets for the Lions / Arizona game. Not sure who’s on the invite list yet, but feel free to plead your case…

BLESSYOUBOYS: SAU Day at Comerica Park is this weekend. All you Arbor alums are welcome to call for free tickets…

NOCTURNALNOISEMAKERS: Killed basement-dwelling crickets Nos. 2 and 3 tonight. Can’t figure out how they’re getting in… Also can’t figure out how they can make SUCH A RACKET!!! Noisy little things; also tough to track down. Squished them with my sandal this time rather than the 2-foot square.

HECKOFADEAL: I’ve been in the market for some good speakers to put in my bedroom so I can crank my laptop. Looks like the Logitech Z-2200’s with a $50 mail-in-rebate is about as good as it gets. THX-certified…200 watts… Mmmmm… I can hear it now… Surprisingly, Dell’s the best place to order them from since they have free shipping…

The interest in your crickets probably stems from being the step-daughter of an entomologist. Hope the crickets go away. Happy reading. http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/2000/2066.html
