I got the Cardinals and the Red Sox and then two teams with no chance to win. (3 Good Things From 10/7/09)
1. Mr Bunches sleeping on my shoulder while The Boy and I picked our baseball teams for the playoffs. Mr Bunches was trying to watch TV after dinner but dozed off, leaving me to try to wake him up so he didn't ruin his sleep. I picked him up and carried him back downstairs, where he snoozed while The Boy and I selected our teams for our annual World Series bet.
2. The return of new episodes of South Park. It seems like forever since they showed a new South Park, and while I wasn't crazy about the semi-Sixth Sense parody, a mediocre South Park is still better than 90% of television. But I've said it before and I'll say it again: Why are cartoon shows limited to just parodying other movies and shows?
3. Our mail started coming on time again. For about a week there, we were getting mail late, and our Netflix movies were coming late and having already been opened, making us think the mail carrier was up to something. Which can happen, you know. And, while I'm on the subject, check out a McSweeney's short story about a mail carrier realizing that a customer (?) has not returned their Netflix. It's pretty good.
