the only earth?

progress

minor achievement of the night: bought plane tickets to go to michigan at the end of june / beginning of july for family fun. while i'm there, i'll probably do some krieger 2002 campaigning. i'll be there for about a week and a half, but that was the best fare and it's not really worth the extra money to get back to seattle right away.

okay. i think i'll sleep for a few hours.

wow. i think the intense 90 degree heat is breaking. i think that was a cool breeze i just felt coming through the window.

the only earth?

awake

woke up early this morning to watch the world cup. it was really strange, three goals in the first five minutes, but only two (poland) were valid. the US went on to lose 3-1, but still advances to play Mexico because Portugal lost to South Korea.

I think I like to watch tournaments because it only requires a short-term commitment. Regular seasons are infinitely longer than my attention span for sports. Soccer is a really nice game to watch and it's so convenient - 2 hours and it's over. I assume that it's not as popular for television because of its limited advertising potential.
