Wow – Another Wainy Wednesday!

Who’d a thunk?  I woke up at about 4:30 this morning to the sound of teeming rain – and wondered how our young plants are keeping themselves from sliding down the hill.  Really.  As the light returns, I see that everything looks pretty much intact out there – albeit waterlogged.

Not so intact are the egos of the Red Sox this morning, I’m thinking, as they blew a 10-1 lead and lost to the Orioles.  A nightmarish ending appropriate for Poe’s old stomping grounds.  The Phillies also lost – in a see-saw battle with the Braves that went to 10 innings.  This is worrisome – as these are the sorts of games that they were winning last year.  Lots of time left, though.

Saw a great movie last night at Red River – “Away We Go.”  Review to follow this evening … but Alice … it’s Alexi Murdoch … remember?

On the political front, Al Franken can finally be seated … and the Dems are out of excuses.  Ready to Cowboy up, folks?

Oh, and Mark Sanford?  Turns out there were other “lines crossed.”  Interesting, how daintily he talks about his “indiscretions” and such – how different the landscape of adultery and sin and all seems to look to him now.

“If you’re a married guy at the end of the day you shouldn’t be dancing with somebody else. So anyway, without wandering into that field we’ll just say that I let my guard down in all senses of the word without ever crossing the line that I crossed with this situation.”

He let his guard down? Oh right … because evil (as in women?) is out there stalking the righteous (as in people like the guv) at every turn.  Let your guard down and they’ll get ya.  Poor guy.  He let his guard down a lot, I’m thinking.  And now he doesn’t think he should resign or anything … nah … he should have a chance to repent, rectify things … you know … all the stuff he’d never allow a Democrat to do.  That would be wrong – immoral.  What a self-righteous prick.  Perhaps if he changes parties, I will actually believe that he has repented.  Anything less is just self-serving hypocrisy IMHO.  ;>)

Chris Kelly has a nice take on the whole Sanford mess … what it really means when God is in the driver’s seat in your life.

On to soccer – a far more uplifting subject this morning.  The Red Stars host the Freedom tonight … and try to stop their tailspin.  The match will be available via webcast.

Meanwhile the Sol have clinched the first playoff berth in this inaugural WPS season.  Looks pretty likely it’ll be the top spot, at that.

And here’s a nice video from the Breakers … no commentary needed …


Oh … and congrats, Maren (belated) – we love you here in NH, too!

    Re: Gov. Sanford, I really hope his wife tells him to take a hike!! I am absolutely astounded as to the amount of tell all crap he is telling the press. How could he say that he is “trying to reconcile with his wife” AND say he has met his soul mate…and play it out in a very public way? What about his children? My thoughts go out to his “wife” Jennifer. I am sending her my energy to have the courage to tell him she is done reconciling….
    On another note, I can’t seem to get your videos to actually play, they just kinda spin and never play…?
    have a good evening

    Remember? Hey–I already have my order in for Alexi’s CD, ironically titled “Toward the Sun.” We can only hope.


So, what do you think?
