Things to think about when the cricket is rained out..

  1. I have new Pink Shoes.
  2. There are only two of us at work - the other guy blows his nose on his t-shirt. Charming.
  3. It took me 45 minutes to figure out how to post a new blog. I'm that smart.
  4. I'm wearing my new Pink Shoes.
  5. I need more shoes.
  6. You can never have enough handbags.
  7. I'm really, really not paid enough to support my lifestyle.
  8. Neither is my boyfriend.
  9. I have new black shoes - yet to be worn. Much anticipation.
  10. This is going to be a long Sunday.
The height of boredom

This day in history: random picks from my extensive (and very bored) research time

  • September 17, 642 Arabs conquer Alexandria, library destroyed
  • September 17, 1598 Netherland sailors discover Mauritius [that explains why they all speak French]
  • September 17, 1835 Charles Darwin lands on Chatham Galapagos-archipelago
  • September 17, 1872 Phillip W Pratt patents his sprinkler system for extinguishing fires
  • September 17, 1899 1st British troops leave Bombay for South Africa [to fight off those cheeky boere, I guess]
  • September 17, 1911 25th U.S. Womens Tennis: Hazel H Wightman beats F Sutton (8-10 61 97) and September 17, 1928 48th U.S. Mens Tennis: Henri Cochet beats F T Hunter (46 64 36 75 63) [although the tennis scores are meant to read 4-6, 7-5 etc, they sound awesome... "Cochet leads 75 games to 63. Quiet please..."]
  • September 17, 1953 1st successful separation of Siamese twins
  • September 17, 1968 Gaylord Perry (Giants) no-hits St. Louis Cardinals, 1-0 [included for no reason other than his first name]
  • September 17, 1994 Princess Christina separates [that's all there is to it. Princess Christina separates... eggs, her chromosone, the atom?]
