Summer In the City

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?
