All Quiet On The Northern Front
On Thursday, I heard some rustling upstairs from the McGee. The unmistakeable clomping and chair moving. No music or woos though, it stopped after about a 1/2 hour, and I haven't heard a peep since. So with the exception of that 30 minutes of reasonable noise, it's been total radio silence for close to 13 days now. deeeelightful.
The liquor store put their sign back up this weekend. Mojo's officially closed now. The Plough and Stars is fully reopened and having live music again. All sorts of changes on the block.
Day 3 of unemployment. Not too shabby. There is a little void in my left pocket where the blackberry used to be. That'll take some getting used to. My old co-worker Carol gave me a paring knife as a goodbye gift. I don't know if she planned it or not, but it made for a few good stick-it-to-the-Man-on-the-way-out jokes.
It's also worth mentioning that today is Opening Day for baseball (technically, the season started last night when the World Champion Chicago White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians but today is OD for the rest of the league). Seems like just yesterday that I launched Von Trapper Keeper with a post about the White Sox winning the World Series. I was all prepared to end this post with a photo montage poking fun at Curt Schilling, culled from the hilarious photoshop prankster Yankee fans at nomass.org, but why start out on a note of negativity. There will be plenty of that this season as Sox fans watch their team wallow in 4th place and try to take it out on me. GO YANKS!!
