I have more people coming by telling me how amped up they are for this.

I have been busier than a swarm of mosquitoes at a nudist colony.

My fiancee, God bless her, decided to bail me out of a two month commitment to see Wicked with her parents.

I am so nervous. I know they can beat the Twins, just waiting to get the job done. I can't wait.

So far, zero productivity. Luckily, most in my group are Sox fans and we are all basically useless.

I work two part time jobs currently, one hasn't given me hours in over a week, and i have to work ****ing 6-1030 pm tonight :angry:. 4.5 measly hours at the worst time possible. Needless to say I won't be confirming anymore bull**** shifts for them in the next 2 weeks.

that's the good news. the bad news is, you guys are in charge of drafting the new bailout plan. guess it has to wait until after the sox game! :D:

I just KNOW we're winning this thing tonight and I CAN'T WAIT!!

I don't think I've ever cared less about my Italian midterm on Friday. I should have skipped my first class for all the listening I did. Which is to say none. Is it 6:37 yet?

I'm a lot less nervous than I was in 2005. Lets face it: we've been here before, and gone much farther. If we lose, it sucks- but its not like we're on the verge of doing something we havent done in 88 years.

Back before 2005, I hated close games/series. I was happer if we swept or won a division by 20 games.

Now, its kinda fun. I remember in some perverse way last week actually wanting it to come down to this game. Over 3 straight games, we can single-handedly choke MIN outta the playoffs. At home.

Truth be told, I haven't taken my studies as seriously my first few weeks at school because of the Sox. I've got a three-page paper due on Friday and three exams on that day. I don't care though. When will I need to know about American Environment History in real life anyways? The Sox will be around forever!

I've gotten good at the 'act' though.

Funny you say that.

I was looking at a sales produciton report for the last year for me, September '07 to April '08 I was the top producer for my region. April '08 to now I have dropped to the middle of the list. My boss asked me if things were OK, I blamed it on WallStreet. :cool:

Ditto for me. Do not want to get caught in traffic - remember first pitch for tonight's game is at 6:30 pm central time - in the midst of nasty Chicago traffic!

I'm ready to leave now!

I skipped class yesterday for the game. I really wanted to skip classes today as well to go to tonight's game but I have a test, of course which I should be studying for right now but can't.

I haven't been this excited for a game since game four of the '05 WS.

Trying to decide when I should leave... gotta grab ticket from B.O. then would like to get in line for gate opening to have a shot at Bullpen Bar seating. Probably leave at 4:15.

Eh, is anyone else wondering how early is too early to leave for the park? Is it too early to leave now? (Did I do the teal right? Newbie).

Today is end of the quarter, which is always a busy day for me. I have to work late tonight, but I will be listening to the game over the Internet and cheering on the Sox. I will be here alone after about 6 pm, so no one will hear me if I yell or see me if I cry.

If I really was in charge of that, we'd be in more trouble than you think. Plus, it would have to wait until the Sox are eliminated from the playoffs or win the whole thing. And then you would have to wait for me to recover. :D:

Me neither - I was off sick yesterday so trying to play catchup but can't wait to get home, throw on a black World Series champs t shirt, a black Sox hat and watch.

I got a couple loads of laundry done this morning. Does that count? I'll be clearing out of here at about 5:30. I'd like to get to the ballpark no later than 5:45ish.

Vienna
09-30-2008, 01:47 PM
I'm not. I just told somebody I'm happy that my work is billed as a project, rather than by the hour, so I don't have an ethical issue about productivity today. C'mon, I'm in the middle of Twins Territory. I can't wait. I'm getting stopped by most folks in the office to get my take on the game.

Also, I'm starting a new job on Monday, so the motivation is low.

I'm planning out the game atmosphere menu for watching at home -- dogs, beer, nachos. You know, important stuff.

Go Sox!

Vienna
09-30-2008, 01:50 PM
Oh, and I have to be on a two hour conference call starting at 4:00 AM tomorrow morning. Again, not a lot of motivation today.

And that is probably one of the many reasons why you are marrying her!

Tivo rocks for us west coasters, but luckily I have a slow day and think I can bail early. I'm going to be useless by about 2:00 anyway.

I've actually had a productive day. I came in an hour early so I can leave early and get a head start. I've been lucky since a typical Tuesday isn't a huge workload, and it's even slower because of the Jewish Holiday. I'm much looser right now than I was in 2005. I'll be leaving Northbrook in less than hour. I'm ready.

I have spent more time on WSI today than I have in the past month.

I had a couple things going on this morning but this afternoon is pretty dead. Gonna hop the red line down about 4:45 or 5.

Between tonight and my stressing over my kid's first birthday party later this week, I'm not expecting much sleep.

I'm really trying hard to not let that happen to me on Monday. Awful time for an exam with a playoff game tonight, homecoming MSU football game tomorrow vs. Iowa, taking a friend to the airport in Detroit Sunday morning and then Sox playoff game Sunday afternoon . . . and then Linear Systems and Control exam at 9:00 am monday. yuck.
