The MLB All-Star game is upon us!!!! Cue the excitement! Cue the music! Break out the beer and snacks!
I’m sorry. The team with the best record should get home field advantage, AL or NL. That’s how they do NBA, NHL…and the NFL playoffs do the same thing (NFL has only one game at a neutral site for the championship, thus it is hard to compare it to baseball).
Will I watch? Probably. It’s hard not to when you are a sports fan and there is LITERALLY nothing else on. And I don’t watch a whole lot of TV anymore (gee, thanks grad school!) so many times, especially in the summer, sports are the only reason to turn on the tube.
The interwebs on the other hand…
So I tried, really tried, to hold off on watching Emma Approved. I mean, the Lizzie Bennet Diaries were like my biggest form of procrastination the whole time I was getting my Master’s degree. I was actually glad it was over before student teaching. And I refused to start Emma Approved until I graduated and got a job. Well, still no job but I did start (and catch up on) Emma Approved the other day and can I just say: It is FANTASTIC!
Not only because of these two:

But because they are adorable. See exhibits A, and B:
Also, starting something new: book of the week. I’m reading Zorro by Isabel Allende.
I’ve read the original (Curse of Capistrano by Johnston McCulley) and loved the Disney series (the one that came out in 1957. I loved watching the reruns of that as a kid) and the movies. So far the book is a bit…off beat. Not bad, but the narrator definitely has an agenda, which I don’t mind but I haven’t really gotten to any action yet. I’ll keep you posted.
