Wakefield Of Dreams

leave a comment »

Holy cow, that’s right. Tim Wakefield has never been an All-Star before. I didn’t know he was one this year until now. Good for him.

The moment Tim Wakefield realized what it meant to be at the All-Star game came well before he dressed alongside Derek Jeter or warmed up next to Roy Halladay.

It happened in a hotel elevator, actually.

That’s where Wakefield happened to run into Trevor Hoffman. The pair of fortysomething baseball lifers exchanged a fast, firm handshake, then ran off to another round of festivities.

One Gay Penguin Gets Happy Feet

leave a comment »

I’m not going to comment on where this zoo is located. No siree. Not at all.

Linda the penguin has split up two male penguins who lived as a nesting couple for six years at the San Francisco Zoo, caretakers said.

Male penguins Harry and Pepper had been so content together they were allowed to incubate and hatch an egg laid by another Magellanic penguin last year, zookeeper Anthony Brown said.

“Of all of the parents that year, they were the best. They took very good care of their chick,” Brown told the San Francisco Examiner in a story published Saturday.

Enter the widow Linda, who began courting Harry in her partner’s old burrow shortly after his death this past winter, Brown said.

“To be completely anthropomorphizing, Linda seems conniving,” Brown said. “She’s got her plan. I don’t think she was wanting to be a single girl for too long.”

Though Harry and Linda have been nesting in recent months, molting season in late summer tends to reshuffle couples, KTVU-TV reported Sunday.

“It’ll be interesting to see if Harry spends any of that time with Pepper,” Brown said. “We’ll have to wait and see.”

See, those penguins CAN be converted back.

Shades Of Gray, Now In More Places Than One

leave a comment »

So today I decided to go without my morning shave before work. No I didn’t get a notice in my HR file for poor hygiene. I was just too lazy to shave this morning. Plus I was running a bit late and wanted to get out of the office by 4 p.m. When it comes to dress codes, it’s no big deal at my place of employment. Hell, I wear shorts and a plain t-shirt to work 99 days out of 100 during the summer and jeans and a plain t-shirt to work 101 days out of 100 during the winter. Here’s kick in the ass that snuck up on me today.

I was using the restroom facilities and for some reason I looked into the mirror, but not directly at myself (another story for another day). However, I was able to notice a beacon where my chin is located. What what this beacon?

A silver hair.

You got to be kidding me.

I then saw several more of these little whiskers laughing at me. For God’s sake. It’s bad enough my hair has been graying since I was 23. Now my face is following suit. W00t~!

Actually, truth be told, I really don’t care. The better half has had a field day since 1999 pointing out the selected hair strands that get grayer and grayer with each passing year. I’m not quite a silver fox yet, but it is noticeable enough. Of course, last month at my idiot mother’s wedding she pointed out my gray stuff for THE FIRST TIME. Uhhhhh, I’ve had gray hair since 1999. Thanks for noticing. Then again, with all the infrequent visits I make to her, I’m surprised she knows what I look like at all.
