Winnah, Winnah, Winnah!

I had a pretty good Friday this past week. A work colleague (I've never described a single person I work with as a 'work colleague' until now--sounds official doesn't it?) invited me up to Angel Stadium for a networking luncheon and tour of the stadium.

The tour was fun (or rather, funny), and can be wrapped up in just one the fascinating stories the tour guide told.

"So I have a bucket of balls that I need to get signed by Mr. Famous Baseball Player, and I set my balls up on the table. Now Mr. Famous Baseball Player whacks my balls onto the floor. I'm like, 'Why did you hit my balls off the table?' And he just glared at me. I mean, I just wanted to get my balls signed. So, he leans down and starts picking my balls up off the floor." Insert childish giggling whenever the words "my balls" are mentioned.

The luncheon, well, it started with a story about newborn giraffes and how their mothers kick them across the ground to make them stand, and ended with someone giving their reasons why George W. Bush and Wal-Mart should be admired for being a visionary person and a visionary company, respectively. Or some other such bullshit. Our table countered by choosing Ralph Nader, which I don't really agree with, but it was funny just to see the other table get irritated.

More importantly--I won a gift basket! Apparently it's an "Angles baseball survival kit" full of chair cushions, sun block, a hat, a visor and DVDs(?). Frinklin was far more excited than I was. I'm a Padres fan, myself. Plus there was that "Angels In the Outfield" movie. Need I say more?

And, in a completely different event--I won second place in Practical Penumbra's stupid customer story contest! And I'd like to thank the stupid customers that I deal with on a daily basis...

"my balls" hehe.
