Hey, a great Big Bang Theory Halloween episode followed by a World Series pitchers duel. Of course I'm probably missing out on some brilliant Joe Buck and Tim McCarver insight by having the TV on mute and listening to 2008 Fire open mics instead.

*waits for the inevitable Jayson Stark article about how Justin Verlander has nightmares about the Giants*

I would rather watch Joe Carter's World Series walkoff on loop for three hours than any more comical Cardinals comebacks. You're sure these games aren't simulated by a couple 9 year olds playing Xbox? This is almost making me want to root for the Yankees now. And that's just wrong.

Now that I'm also thinking of Carlos Beltran's called third strike as a Met in 2006 and Cardinals players mocking the new Marlins stadium after Opening Day, I'm pretty sure the entire NL East fanbase wants this team to just get run over by a bus already. If it really does take the Yankees winning to get them out, I'm all for it.

Listening back to conversations on my recorder causes me to be a massive dork sometimes. Some crazy drummer at Connie's Ric Rac open mic a couple weeks ago claimed to me that he joined Hall and Oates when he was 16, which was odd since he also announced his birth date as May 20, 1953 and H&O didn't release their debut until 1972. Oh yeah, it's also amazing he was supposedly the drummer on Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me" considering that guy's been dead since 2004.

Uh oh, I'm attempting to get back on OKStupid again. Sense of humor and honesty are supposedly the big important qualities, right? You're probably asking for trouble on those fronts when dealing with me, heh. *crosses fingers*

I'm probably asking for trouble. I've avoided relationships because I'm a solitary person and terrified of my weirdness being put too much under a microscope. But my sentimental side is going to waste, and I need some good way to push myself out of the house and live life more. Being either *way* more obsessive or apathetic than the average person in just about every area of life sucks. Surely there's some train wreck out there like me. Everyone seems too normal.

Oh, and it's definitely very within me to overinflate the awesomeness of girls I like in any way. "Honesty" kind of goes out the window there. It would be nice if my fear of not wanting to come off as a stalker or something did, too.
I really need to actually stick with my original plan of not watching these baseball playoffs. Stupid Cardinals. Stupid Stephen Strasburg shutdown. Stupid Raul Ibanez being a traitor and hitting homers for the Yankees.

My alter ego Psycho(logist) Paul says I really need to kick my addiction to Hearts. The Queen of Spades is so evil.

Gary Demon: "No! Don't quit! You need to try and beat your 7 game winning streak!"

Derek: "I should search for the three player variant online that gets rid of the two of diamonds so each player can get 17 cards."

Amy: "Eric always tries to shoot the moon, so be sure to piss him off by passing low hearts."

Sensible Alan: "Forget Hearts - the real question is why the queen in chess is more powerful than the king. I mean, come on now."

It would be amusing to eventually do a three album song cycle about all the U.S. Presidents. The thought of one album ending with the bachelor (and possibly gay) James Buchanan and another ending with "Silent" Calvin Coolidge saying, "You lose" over a near instrumental amuses me.
