today

Watched the second half of the World Cup final (Italy-France). The French captain got red-carded early in the second overtime (and he deserved it), but Italy couldn't capitalize. Went to penalty kicks, which Italy won 5-3. I felt bad for the French player who hit the crossbar and essentially lost the World Cup for his team and the entire country of France. I didn't see the first half, but I can say that during the second half France was the team pressing more, working harder, passing better, wanting it more. They didn't put the ball in the net, tho, which is mostly what they count when determining the score...

Bought a used dishwasher for $30 at an estate sale and installed it (ours was on its last legs). It's white, and the fridge & stove are black, but then nothing else matches in the house, and the dw we had was seriously crappy. Of course, the wiring was slightly different, as was the water hookup, but a little thought solved #1, and a trip to the hardware store solved #2.

Went to the lake with David and I think perforated my eardrum dropping off a rope swing into the water. Hurts like the devil even after 7 hrs. Tomorrow I'll go to the doc-in-the-box to see what up.

Bought David a bed (futon, $40, yard sale) because his is broken. The couple who sold it to me are Messianic Jews from Catalonia, which led to some interesting conversation.

Took the neighbor a 12-pak of beer to say thanks for watching David's dog last week. Pretty confident that was the right thank you gift -- he's not a difficult guy to buy for...

Came home and wrote the world's most boring and pointless blog post.

'Night...

was going to make no comment on this, "the most boring, pointless, useless, etc post", but then i saw this quote from the french player that head-butted the italian player: "i tell myself that if things happened this way, it's because somewhere up there it was decided that way."* apparently apologizing but not regretting his actions (says he was provoked by the italian player, who allegedly insulted his mom and sis). it must be nice that he has no responsibility for what he does. i think i'll adopt this philosophy also. (actually maybe i already do with some of my comments to you -- it's not *my* fault that you cause me to be a smarta**. :))

* i do acknowledge that something may have been lost in the translation...
