Today -- and Beaker!

It's been a strange day...gloomy out, and cold. (I'm not complaining! I'm not complaining! It's wonderful to be chilly, for a change!)

I spent a lot of it cleaning. (Not that the house needed it...:)  Supper was tacos, thanks to the Rockies' amazing 9th inning last night. They're two outs down, behind 9-3. Nearly everyone has gone home, and it's started to rain. Then out of NOWHERE, they start hitting...and hitting...and hitting...including a 3-run homer by Seth Smith. The endscore? 12-9...game is Rocks! I still don't know how they did it.

They did it again tonight -- but took a few innings to accomplish it this time. WOW.

One of the best places to hang out when you're in a peckish mood is Youtube...I bumbled onto this wonderful Beaker (from the Muppets) version of Beethoven's Ode to Joy. (It won a Webby award for best musical.) Husband does a great Beaker imitation when he's in the right mood. He also does a terrific chicken impersonation! If you're a Beaker fan too, try this one, wherein he copies himself... has too much coffee...and ends up being everybody at show's end! (You'll have to watch it to understand.) I love the Poor Boy guys, as well. I'd ask Husband to serenade me tonight, Beaker-style, but he is not feeling well -- and losing his voice. Guess I'll have to "meep" myself to sleep, instead.
