A Reprieve from Fantasy Madness

My Fantasy Football playoffs began today. It’s high stress around here, people. I wish you all could see the set-up in our living room…Direct TV NFL Ticket displaying a trillion games simultaneously on the television, 2 Mac laptops on both arms of the couch (which we refresh every 2.5 seconds to check our players’ points) and a shitload of yelling and cursing.

I love fantasy football, except for when I am losing. And today, I’m losing. So D and I decided after 6 hours of screaming at the television, we needed a little fresh air and decided to take a quick walk around the block.

Just as we started walking, the sun was setting behind Catalina Island. Isn’t it beautiful? Sometimes I can’t believe I’m lucky enough to live in this amazing place.

I take back everything I said about California during the holiday season.

    My FF playoffs started today also and I feel like I’m crack. There is lots of shaking, random yelling, and sometimes I felt like I wanted to throw the computer and the TV against the wall. I love this time of year.

    I couldn’t have said it better myself. Good luck!

    No weekly money for high points during FF playoffs, so who has high points -me. I turned football off for a while yesterday to watch old christmas movies-probably why I had high points, I wasn’t screaming at the tv.

    The beau lost his first FF game in ages yesterday. You’d think he’d bet the car on that game. Oh shit . . .

    I’m in a dead heat w/ Horton, down 2 points at 93-95 going into next week. The pressure!

    You will persevere…you must, you’re the bestest.

    Thank GADO for Samkon last night! No thanks to Palmer and the Chicago defense.

    I am up by 10 points, but the Mudd Sharks have Warrick Dunn tonight. I am praying for a slow night. I am hoping to be down by 10 or less when it is all over.

    I totally hear you on the going outside deal. I think some people would lynch me if they knew how much I sit around on my computer when its PERFECT outside!

    Wow! How did I miss that view? Makes me think that sometimes I should go outside. I’m just too in love with my fireplace, Christmas decorations, and catching up on TiVo. A girl’s gotta have priorities.
