World Cup

Our delivery man this morning was grinning from ear to ear.  No I didn't wear my shirt on backwards.

He: So Jesusa, who are you rooting for (with a thick Spanish accent)?
Me: What do you mean?
He: You know, soccer.  World Cup is starting and Mexico is playing on Friday!
Me: "Oh," with a shamed look on my face.  Well, I don't have a team.
He: Just choose Mexico and wake up early on Friday to watch the game.
Me: Ok

When he left my lab I felt so disturbed, I immediately run to my computer and googled "World Cup."  I was thinking to myself, "Gee, I was just warming up for the Lakers!"  Not that I don't like soccer, I guess I just wasn't expose to it much with basketball, baseball, tennis and football as the main sports in my little world of sports.  I know,  being "sports challenged" is not a valid excuse.

Ooops, wrong address:(

It will be Father's Day soon and I was quite delighted when I found this 2007 Malbec from a Paso Robles winery where I usually order from for gifts.  My dad likes wine, therefore, wine it is!  As I was finishing  with checkout I kept on thinking how easy it is to shop for gifts with a click of a finger.  Then I started an email to my siblings telling them this and like an executive order told them how much it was and for them to give me check or credit card for their share.  I guess that's one perk of being the oldest!  As I was clicking the "send button," out of the corner of my eye I saw that I accidentally clicked a friend's address instead of my sister's address.  As fast as the speed of sound the email was sent and there wasn't a way for me to stop it.  I wonder what my friend will think of me now asking her for a share for someone that's not her dad, hahahaha.
