I am baked. Completely.
Went to the Brett Favre Celebrity Softball Game yesterday at Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton. It was a good time. Joey K, April, BryGuy? and I were in attendance. We sat on the grass along the left field sidelines, where the sun had a great shot at us from 11:50 to 2:30 Sunday afternoon. My legs are burnt the worst, but my arms and face aren’t far behind. Actually, I take that back. My face is not as bad as the arms. Still, legs much worse. I am "medicating" all burnt regions with Noxema, and it seems to be helping a little. What’s really creepy about sunburn in my book is how the skin keeps right on burning after you get out the sun. I was sitting at my desk today, and my face got redder as the day went on.
Enough about the burn, though — the game was entertaining if nothing else, and Bryan and I had a good time doing our commercial-top-40 radio voices, mocking the announcers that called the game. They were a little annoying, but we made our own fun. Afterwards, we *were* going to go to the hibachi joint in Appleton, but it turned out they weren’t open until 4 pm. We were there at around 3:30. I think the consensus was that we were a little tired at that point anyway. When I got home, I took a nap and let the skin continue to sear.
Later on Sunday evening, I finally hooked up with Jim Droste for the post-semester smoke, which we enjoyed on the steps of Breese Hall, in stark violation of university policy. That’s sort of the best part. We took a walk to Oblio’s for a couple beers and then had burger’s at Brooklyn’s for dinner. It was a nice little Sunday, and Jim and I commented that there’s really no reason to ever leave college if you don’t have to.
Right now, I’m working on cutting the commercials out of the ‘Alias’es that I taped this year. I figure I’ll put the whole season on disc, and who knows, maybe Mom and Dad will have time to catch up before next year gets rolling. *Sigh* I really couldn’t believe the finale, as usual, but I guess that’s why we watch the show.
Busy week ahead — Modest Mouse tomorrow night in Madison, Brewers on Wednesday in MKE, then out with Bruiser on Thursday night here in Vegas. I was hoping to maybe get up north for the weekend, but it doesn’t look like it’ll happen. Unless Joe feels like going up, I dunno… he’s probably gotta work.
Lemme know if something interesting happens, eh?
