I was bummed to learn, yesterday afternoon, from my roving reporters, that Bates lost to Middlebury after a valiant and mud-spattered game that was scoreless until @ 5-minutes from the end. At that point, Middlebury took a corner after which the ball bounced around in the box and was eventually hit into the net (after what some say looked like a Middlebury hand ball). It sounded like a heart-breaking loss for the Bobcats, who hung tough with the Panthers throughout the contest. Excellent effort, ladies!
The Bookeaters met at Brazos in Portsmouth last night and had a lively discussion of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle – an ambitious book in which we were all somewhat disappointed. (And I entirely missed the fact that the plot paralleled Hamlet. I’ll blame that on the cold meds.)
Next up? Persuasion. (And the big questions will be … what sort of restaurant goes with Jane Austin?! Suggestions are welcome!)
HollyCornblog has added to her beer-making repertoire, trying her hand at making a keg! She said it turned out well. Here’s the keg in its sleeve – a neoprene KEGlove with an ice jacket inside to keep it cold (up to 8 hours). She and CharlieHopbrew are off to the lake this morning to put the rugs back down and, maybe, repaint the woodstove (which gets re-installed this Wednesday). Aside from some tree work up there, I think that means the place is all set for the winter. (Phew!)
What else today? Nice to see the sun out after some torrential rain yesterday.
We’ve got FFootball … the 2 Blitzen’ Babes are up against Brigitte’s Boys (and the Babes fully expect to lose … how’s that for trash talk?).
Yankees-Angels were postponed to tonight – and Phillies Phans the world over are rooting for this match-up to be stretched to 7 games. Go Angels!!
Lots to do today … better get myself moving!
