The title of this post is not exactly what I am going to be writing about but I just have to say that I was watching the ALDS Yankees v. Twins baseball game on Friday night and I think MLB needs to develop some sort of rule about fair v. foul balls in the outfield. Towards the end of the game the Twins had a hit to left field that landed SO incredibly fair and was called foul. It cost the Twins the game and it made me depressed because who in the world wants the Yankees to win (I’m a Mets fan but am contemplating adopting a new team because they stink). And of course to top it off Mark Texiera the baseball robot hit a walk off home run to win the game for the Yankees.
Enough about baseball. Other comments/observations from the weekend…
-I spent the majority of today and yesterday reading and catching up on work. I read about half of my reading for my Fundamentals of HR book (this is the second book I’m reading for the class and it is slightly more interesting than the first thank goodness) and I caught up on stats and became a master of excel and StatTools this awful (but helpful) stats program for Excel that came with our book.
-I went out to dinner on Friday night for a late birthday celebration (my birthday was 9/30). It was at a restaurant in Delaware, OH where Ohio Wesleyan is and where I went to undergrad. I know I know why would I leave Columbus when there are so many good places to eat but the reason is because the restaurant is called Nova and they have the most amazing grilled chicken salad I have ever had. It has a sweet onion balsamic vinaigrette that they home make in the kitchen, the chicken is delicious, it has blue cheese, spinach, strawberries and blueberries in it. Hi amazing. So it was worth the trip to Delaware (which is actually a really cute town to walk around if you want to see someplace outside of Columbus).
-I had Rita’s again. I went in sweatpants with my friend Rachel. It was delicious. I have two more stamps to get until I get a free ice.
-I discovered Antrim Park, up on Olentangy River Rd. It’s a pretty park with a little lake and a 1.2 mile path around the lake. There were a lot of people there with their dogs and people just walking and running. I’m not a runner, I’m a brisk walker so I walked around the lake twice. It was a beautiful day outside, I’m glad I found the park. Sometimes I just need to get fresh air it helps me think.
-The same friend I went to Rita’s with, Rachel, said that I needed to do some more decorating in my apartment so I was inspired and got some nice pillows for my couch/loveseat and a pretty candle centerpiece for my dinged up coffee table. Now I just need some things for my walls…it’s fun decorating an apartment except sometimes I’m completely uninspired and I get confused about what would look good so I never get anything.
So fun weekend for me (minus the homework) I’m off to read more and watch game three of Yankees Twins series. If the Yankees win I’ll cry.
