"I want, I want, I want ... but that's crazy"

Unnecessarily early morning....

I woke up at 5 a.m. to watch Italy play S. Korea in soccer, and apparently my schedule was wrong. The game was not on. I managed to fall back to sleep and got up at 8 to start working and find out when the game was on - it had started 15 minutes earlier. I got to watch all the good stuff though. They're worth losing a little sleep over. :)

I was saddened to read the news of Isaac Hayes' death today. He is most significant to me for his role as Tolok on Stargate SG-1. I'm still a huge fan of the show despite recent events (but I still can't bring myself to watch Continuum). It's harder still for Gate fans so soon after the loss of Don S. Davis. We seem to be losing a lot of celebrities unexpectedly this year. Bernie Mac was lost this week as well.

I've been kind of caught up in the coverage of the Olympics, which is a little unusual for me, to tell the truth. It's probably because I was so eager to watch international soccer again. It seems I picked a good year to watch though. Records are falling all over the place already. It's really been pretty exciting. I've decided to do my column tonight on the Olympics and the NBC Olympic Web site. (((Hey, you know, if any of you are interested in reading my weekly newspaper column, leave me a comment, and I'll reprint them here. Or a few of them anyway.)))

Such an eventful summer (in an even more eventful year) - starting with the very first day, which I would consider to be my son's graduation from high school. Pooh graduated, and that same day, my nearly three-year relationship ended. I reconnected (just as friends) with the oldest friend of my life - and twice former fiance - from whom I'd had a five-year estrangement. My stepgrandmother died. (My stepgrandfather had died earlier this year.) My boss was fired. I started working from home full-time and retreated completely from the world. We spent a day at Cedar Point. I made a connection with a special new person. Pooh and his girlfriend broke up after more than a year. Pooh got his first job. I was sent back in to work at the office. *Sigh* There's stuff missing there, I'm sure, but those are more or less the high (low) points, in more or less the correct order....

My ex-husband has been on house arrest for the past couple of months, but he says he's moving in a couple of weeks to another city. I'll have to watch my stats again to see which new IP address to block. I'm hoping it cuts down significantly on his time with the girls. I have little choice now, but he's a lousy influence, and they're better off the less time they spend with him. He's contributed absolutely nothing financially to their care in the six years that we've been divorced. He's so completely useless.

School starts in a week and a half. I wonder if life will get back to "normal"...
