- Sleep. Ever since I went out of town early on Friday morning (I was up at 4 am), my inner clock was messed up. I went to bed on Friday and Saturday nights before 10pm. Man I'm getting old.
- Trying to get Comcast to figure out how to get me the Center Ice package. I finally grew weak and resolved to follow my blue and white for the rest of the season. Problem was, Comcast couldn't figure out how to bill me for the package. Really. It took them 3 days to figure out how to do it. Oh, and by the way, when a Comcast phone representative tells you they are going to phone you back, don't believe them. They are full of shit.
It's funny how one sentence can change things.
I've never thought of myself as one who inspires. In the card collecting blogosphere, I consider myself just one of the cogs. Nobody special, just a guy who likes to write and bullshit a little bit about the hobby we all love.
I decided to get off of my ass today and write a thank you email to Trevor over at the Supporting the Minnow blog for the cards he sent me last week. Here was his one sentence response.
No problem. It was your blog and white whale that inspired me.
I've actually inspired someone. It may be sad to you, but that made me feel pretty damn good. Good enough to get me off of my ass and start writing this post. Now, I just have one question for Trevor. Which white whale?? (I figure I have enough white whales I need right now that they could be called a school)
Well, enough of the schmaltzy stuff, here's a few cards for you. I decided to chase down the 2008 Upper Deck X die cuts set, largely because I like how the cards look, and at just 100 cards, it should be relatively easy to put together.
I won a lot of 15 of them on eBay last week for a whopping 99 cents plus shipping, so what the hell, I'll show them off to you...
I already have one fifth of the set. Can't beat that with a stick.
I'm toying with the idea of making some cosmetic changes to the blog, because just like everything else in my life, every year or two I crave a change. At least with the blog, it doesn't cost me anything.
After 5 days, I'm back. I'm sure that nobody noticed I was gone anyhow...
Thanks for reading, Robert
