Good Morning, Meredith And A Few Other Things

I woke up this morning with a new woman in my bedroom. She introduced herself to me, her name is Meredith Viera. Of course, she's one of these women that won't get you coffee in the morning - I had to fetch my own. She's married and has three kids. She's pretty cool. She only stuck around for a couple of hours. I think I'm going to be hanging around her for awhile.

Meanwhile, my ex, Katie, continues to rack up the ratings over at the eye. I've been keeping an eye, errr, no pun intended, on her. She's doing a real good job. I like the segments where guests come on and give a take on a subject or issue.

I went to one of those local Dem Party brown bag lunches yesterday to listen to One Of My Best Friends talk about the Latino vote, Dems and immigration. The local Dem Chair mentioned that the Latino vote was the key to future local Dem victories. I kind of wish the National and State Dem Parties had this figured out. They won't listen to Commentary - maybe they'll listen to the local Dem Chair and start to put in some resources. I like the concept of alllatinosvote.com, but it is going to take a lot more than this. So what else is new?

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that My Best Friend's daughter Lisette, who is also My God Daughter, is getting married next year. Well, a date has been set - July 7, 2007 - that's 7/7/07. In Vegas, 777 is the jackpot. That's pretty cool.

I was absolutely stunned last night - again. I told you I sometimes have bad dreams when we lose like this. I actually had a mini nightmare, like some sort of gargoyle was trying to snatch me - he wore #5. I woke up in a cold sweat. Preston Wilson, who we released last month comes back to bite us in the a__ last night with a two run dinger. Andy Pettitte comes out early with a wing problem. Albert Pujols, errr, #5, continues to make a head case out of Brad Lidge. Craig Biggio is riding the pine for a few games. Adam Everett has a groin issue. We're still at 4 and a half out with 18 to go. The clock is ticking.
