Wow. I stayed up until almost midnight last night, watching a scoreless tie between the Red Sox and the Desperate Housewives, that had gone into the top of the 13th inning. When the Sox didn’t score in the top of the 13th, I gave up and went to bed. It’s a good thing, because, when I got up this morning, I found that they finally did win it, but not until the 16th inning. Dustin Pedroia finally drove in the winning run with a single. Then Jonathan Papelbon come in and got the save in the bottom of the 16th. Total game time, 5 hours and 44 minutes. Wow. Earlier in the day, the Rangers eked out their eleventh straight victory, beating the Mariners 3-1. The Halos got served a 9-1 spanking from the A’s, which puts the Rangers in a 4 game lead over LA, as they travel to that city today, to face their ALE nemeses. Papi most certainly did not hit a home run in last night/this morning’s game, so that streak remains at zero. One of the Housewives almost hit one, but Josh Reddick made an amazing catch in left-center field. Still staying with Ortiz for tonight. Pedroia was my pick for the hit, so I got a new streak going in Beat the Streak. Pedey got three hits last night. Today, the Sox have to play the Crybabies. One thing for sure…they’re going to be tired. Wait…I don’t think I can pick Ortiz…I think he’s having to serve his suspension for these games. Guess I’ll switch it to Gonzo. The Rangers are off tonight. They’ll face off with the Halos tomorrow.
Yesterday afternoon, we watched “Toy Story 3” with Rachel and Justin. We had been warned that this movie was a tear-jerker. And boy, was it. Right from the beginning! Anyone who’s ever had a child grow up and go off to college should AVOID THIS MOVIE!!!! Seriously! It had typical Toy Story humor in it, but was also a bit darker than the other two, as Andy’s toys had to face of against some pretty evil toys in a day care center. But there were some very, very adorable moments in it, too, especially the part when they accidentally set Buzz Lightyear to “Spanish” mode. He didn’t just speak Spanish. He became a stereotypical romantic Spanish male. It was truly hilarious and adorable all at the same time. Jessie, the cowgirl kind of liked it, too. Heh. But then there was the horrifying part that I call “Toys go to Hell.” In fact, that should have been the subtitle of the movie. At that point, I was thinking, “Hey! This is a HORROR movie! Wow!” Finally, perhaps the most adorable character in the movie is this little girl named Molly. She resembled “Boo” from Monster, Inc. She had her own set of toys, and played with them in a very similar way to Andy. I think everyone in the room was crying when it was over. It was a great movie. Except for all those crying parts.
After I went to the grocery store, Christi, Stephanie, and I went back to The Exchange for a “Night of Worship,” which I will talk a little more about in my OTHER BLOG. Then, we watched last week’s episode of “Leverage,” one episode of “Storage Wars,” and Christi went to bed. I foolishly stayed up, thinking surely the Red Sox would win that game in a few minutes. Hah.
