24When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.So slow today. I still didn't do LJ stuff that required thought, though, 'cause I suck at doing that while at work.
I was in a Good Omens [fanfic] mood today. Also winter recs from lunabee34 (Kovksy's Weary World Rejoicing is this week's club_joss).
Today's rec like whoa: Sparks by afrai. Pepper and War and, yeah.
I was helpful three times today. Dean Fanikos in External Relations is a lovely lovely man. It's his job to very nice and friendly and everything, but it actually feels genuine (as opposed to, oh, Jessica).
I left work a bit early to drop off a FedEx package and as I walked by the bus stop the bus was almost there, so since I really wanted to make my train (gotta be home for Thursday evening Emmanuel Lutheran -- which, oops, they're not having this week ...last week's pinch-hitter forgot to mention that, but he was there tonight for something else so we weren't totally lost) I actually took the bus. It got me to Eliot Street in only 5 minutes, but I hate the waiting in traffic feeling like I can't control how quickly [or not] I'm moving, even though duh I have to wait for traffic as a pedestrian as well.
Amusing commercial moments during tonight's second Without a Trace:
Jenna Elfman in skimpy silver garb... "And who picked this outfit? I play a lawyer." (Courting Alex)
"smart, funny, sexually adept...branch" (Love Monkey)
Yankees Outhustled Red Sox to Get Damon
By TYLER KEPNER
With the Yankees, it is all business, all the time. There may be no better example than the four-year, $52 million contract Johnny Damon agreed to late Tuesday.
At Fenway Park, Lucchino told reporters that the Red Sox had made a "very strong and concerted effort" to re-sign Damon, explaining that the team wanted an answer by Christmas Eve.
Instead, it came a few days early. Boras said he called Henry and Hoyer to tell them that Damon was a Yankee. It was not what they wanted to hear, and they must have also cringed that night when they heard Damon's comments to WBZ, a Boston television station.
"We know George Steinbrenner's reputation," Damon said. "He always wants to have the best players, and I think he showed that tonight. He and Brian Cashman came after me hard, and now I'm part of the Yankees and that great lineup, and we're going to be tough to beat."
Hi, you're a jackass, Johnny Damon.
