Cal football fandom

I was kinda stunned after last week's loss to #1 USC, but we didn't slip much in the polls and we came out strong against UCLA, so it's all good. Now I'm in the odd position of debating if I want USC to win out or not, because I want Cal in the Rose Bowl. I want to play Wisconsin or Purdue or Michigan or whoever the Big 10's best is. I just want to finally put the "longest time since attending the Rose Bowl" behind us, I want people to stop saying that the last time Cal went to a Rose Bowl was in 1959.

Five games down, six to go. Off to the desert to play Arizona, a hapless team which looks like they're going to bite somebody. Hopefully it's not us.

notes from the atrocities.

So...I'm sitting out on the patio of my house. The sky is clouded over, the wind is poking around, there's a distinct chill in the air -- all of which points to actual real First Rain, the beginning of the rainy season. It is becoming more and more evident that it is Autumn, the first one spent without the kitty named for the season, but Autumn nonetheless.

I'm sitting out on the porch, wondering if the cool air and the change of scenery will help with posting. I've got a window up entitiled "katster digs her fingers in the plot looking for soft spots" and so that's what I'm going to do for the next hour or so. Hopefully I can come to some conclusions in my junk.

I need to get my mix CDs out, but the one I did for rosefox's Frankenstein groups is out. So far out of that group, I've only got buttler's, but hopefully that'll change soon. The planning for the #spork one is still ongoing as I juggle a half dozen other things too. Out of the spork gang, I've got Mal's, Will's, and Cal's in the mail, and keeb, aio, and Aris have all posted theirs on the web for our enjoyment. That leaves Sev and me for mailing them, and Zibb and Shad for putting them on the web. And while I'm working on the document tonight, I'm listening to Mal's other CD he stuck in for me. Well, being my usual obsessive self and playing one song over and over and over and over... ;) (Okay, I'm switching back and forth between three and four of them, but...)

Letting things muse, that's probably the thing for the night. Figuring out how I want to write certain messy scenes. I'll figure it out. One of these days. :)

And someday, I'm going to get that friends list meme done too. I need to check it, though. Some of it is going to be hard. We'll figure it out later.

But for one brief shining moment, it's all going mostly well. That's a good thing.

Fall is here.

First Rain fell this afternoon, and stepping out on the back porch with the dog, I'm greeted by the nip in the air, the sight of my breath, and the smell of fireplace logs burning. It's a nice feeling.

I need to sleep, though, so I can get up in the morning.
