Cincinnati Reads

 It's taken a whole week to be able to talk about it, but I think it's finally time to mention that the playoffs don't matter any more. Who cares whether which big market team wins the world series?? San Fransisco knocked off the Reds, so I can't root for them, the Cardinals I can never root for, the Yankees no one cares to root for, and that leaves the Tigers (whom I love dearly, but don't follow very closely...like a second cousin or something).

We took Isaiah to clinch game #2 (a.k.a. Wednesday night's loss) and then my dad and I received tickets to go to Thursday's clinch game #3 (a.k.a. The End of the Season). We had great seats for game #3--so close that I could yell at the guys in SF's bullpen and I knew they could hear me. I got into their heads, saying things like, "Hey! Which of you is going to be the first to cry when a Redleg hits a game winning homerun off of you?" (those are biting words). Then I decided to shout at SF's right fielder, Hunter Pence, saying things like, "Hey Pence! Your sleeves are uneven!" (I'm positive he looked).

It really is interesting how the dynamics of being at the Reds game changes when you are sitting close enough that you feel you could actually make a difference towards home field advantage. I become much more invested in the game when I know (or at least think) that I am a crucial part to the Reds success. (Might I also add here that a sellout crowd does not help one's cause when one is trying to get in the head of an individual player. One might even lose one's voice trying to shout over the top of other unruly fans. Don't they realize that I am trying to do something here??)

But alas, another year has come to a close with no pennant to show for it. The Cincinnati Reads will just have to come out swinging next year...

Threatened By a Baby

My sister always dreamed of having a pet tiger. She is a cat person and so the thought of having a tiger as a pet was always intriguing for her. I figured that was a pretty cool idea but didn't think it was very feasible. Come to find out, there are a bunch of stories out there of people who adopted a tiger as a baby, nursed it, trained it, and now have a house pet that is capable of ripping their head off without much effort.

If you came across a full grown tiger on the Savana you would likely find that to be worrisome. After all, the Savana is the Tiger's natural habitat; you are on his turf and you look a lot like lunch. You know it, and he knows it. And your chances of survival are somewhere between slim and none.

But if you came across a tiger cub you would likely not feel threatened at all. At worst this little tiger cub is going to gnaw on your leg or claw your shin but it would just be irritating and wouldn't even draw blood.

This leads me to conclude that the reaso…

Xmas parties

When you throw two Christmas parties over the course of 2 days to two different music groups at church, and you only get a .231 appearance rate....is it really worth it?

Rent to Own Garages of Greatness

I've recently come into a great partnership. I have often wanted a place to store my tools and keep my car dry on rainy days. But I haven't figured out a good way to pay for such an expensive proposition. Of course I could build one, but I recently found that there is a company here in Ohio who builds these garages for a small mark-up and will deliver it ready to use.

Cincy Sheds offers these garages for sale or in a rent-to-own option. You pay 36 payments on a monthly basis of somewhere around $500 and you own the garage at the end of everything.

Why pay to have storage space at some location at a big storage facility when you can have a storage unit brought to your house? And these look classy too!
