With the start of the World Series tonight, thought we needed a mid-week fluff.

1. Will you be watching the World Series?

2. Do you watch the Superbowl?

3. Do you have or get invited to parties for either?

No, no and no, but thanks to spending too much time on the interwebz I now know that "world series" is about baseball and "superbowl" is about "boom ball" as dd used to call it (because the players fell down on top of each other all the time).

We do have a TV with a satellite dish set up in our office to receive all this, btw, a legacy of some American friends.

When my daughter was a toddler, she called football "Men fall down".

LOL, the funniest was that dh never watches the stuff and I obviously don't either. But dd would click around looking for it and would squeal when she found some "boom ball".

Now see, here's the value of facebook. Your goal here is to impress people with all your new stuff, but the old-fashioned way, you have to go to all the trouble of having them in your home, messing up your furniture, plus all the expense of feeding them, just to have them oooo and aaah over your new acquisitions. But take pictures, put them up on facebook, and the entire world can admire your things, and say wonderful things about what a tasteful person you obviously are, and all of that, and it doesn't cost you a dime! You don't even have to pretend to be interested in baseball!

1. Will you be watching the World Series? No. Not even if they paid me.

2. Do you watch the Superbowl? Sometimes.

3. Do you have or get invited to parties for either? Superbowl, sometimes. World Series, never. Most of my friends are adults and employed and don't have the kind of time to waste on parties over a series of 4 to 7 games. Also baseball is more boring to watch on TV than golf *and* bowling. Combined.
