Ah, this was cute and fun to do.
My Inner Hero - Wizard!
There are many types of magic, but all require a sharp mind and a cool head. There is no puzzle I can't solve, no problem I can't think my way out of. When you feel confused or uncertain, you can always rely on me to untangle the knots and put everything back in order for you.

It's been about seventeen years since I was into baseball; lately, I've really been looking forward to watching the Phillies games. It's all my brother's fault, naturally. :^) While we can be nostalgic about the days of Mike Schmidt and John Kruk (and I can dig out my 1987 Topps cards... which still faintly smell of gum), I have to admit that it's been fun catching up with today's players. Bell and Thome... Michaels and Abreu... etc., etc., ... it's been great.
My brother bought a new, unknown species of cichlid for his 55 gallon tank. I've taken to calling it Little Thome, given that it's most likely going to be huge when it grows up - much like the Red Devil cichlid that's in the tank already. Another thing I can blame my brother for - getting me into fish. I was quite happy with my betta fish, Dodger. Now I'd like to set up a little community tank...and I mean little. Knock his tank down by a factor of ten, and you've got the size fish tank that I own. Unfortunately, it's currently got a green severum cichlid quarantined in it (Severum was just too hostile to Little Thome, apparently, so he's in time-out until Little Thome grows a bit bigger). All I'd like are a few tetras and a snail. I've wanted a snail for a long time - no idea why, really. They're just kind of cute. :^D
In other sports-related news... the DC United vs Metrostars game was great fun to watch, despite the Metrostars being thoroughly trounced as they were. Whoa, hello, defense? Are you out there? Being that I didn't really have a team to cheer on, it was fun just to watch without being tied up in knots hoping for a particular side to win.
The best thing about today? Having 13 members of my extended family here to celebrate various birthdays and graduations, talk, eat, and watch the games. Nothing much beats throwing water balloons, running around the yard in the evening with jars to catch lightning bugs, and playing with sparklers.
Life is good. :^)
