Good Mail Day

I frequently differentiate the days of the week as being either Good Mail Days [Netflix, free stuff, magazines] or Bad Mail Days [bills, non-entertaining junk mail]. Depending on the type of Mail Day it is, it really sets the tone for the rest of the day. For instance, Tuesday was a Bad Mail Day, and things got progressively worse: I went to work and something with the boiler broke which left us all freezing cold and made me contemplate setting random things on fire.

But Wednesday was a Good Mail Day, because I got my Twins spring training tickets in the mail. So things just got progressively better: I didn't get charged the $.30 for the extra cheese on my veggie sub at Subway AND I heard Belinda Carlisle on the radio.

You can't beat that.

I feel a little guilty that as a Twins fan, I'm only going to 2 Twins games when I'm in Florida: the Twins vs. the Netherlands WBC team and the Twins vs. the Pirates. But I'm visiting family, which makes my base of operations Sarasota. So, while I love the Twins, I also love not getting creamed in Florida traffic. I figure, the less I drive back and forth to Ft Myers, the less likely I am to die a painful fiery death on the freeway. Plus, I do really just love baseball in general. So I'm rounding things out with a Pirates/Rays game and a Reds/Jays game. Should be satisfactory.

Beats going to work in the cold.

Of course, given my luck, I have a feeling that while I'm in Florida it will be unseasonably warm here, and shockingly cold and rainy there. It would not surprise me.

To add to your day (hopefully a good mail day): Kevin Slowey's brother's's pretty out there funny.

Don't you dare bring that weather with you, or there will be no Barty shirt for you missy.

Hearing Belinda Carlisle on the radio should make anyone's day a little brighter.

I also do not love getting creamed in Florida traffic...and my base of operations while I'm in Florida is Sarasota as well. I'm staying with my parents, so I think the really tough part of getting to spring training will be convincing my mom that it's a fun idea.
