(Middle of the) All-Nighter

It’s 3:21 AM here in Riverdale, Maryland, and not a creature is stirring, except for me. But I’m making good progress, and while I’m feeling a little tired, I am more convinced that this will help me when I get into work tomorrow and allow me to focus on the new project.

Can I just say that the Yankees are kicking butt!? That was some game on ESPN tonight. Had me on the edge of my seat in the top of the ninth, with bases loaded and 1 out and the Red Sox poised to win. Mariano Rivera got out of it and then the Yanks scored 3 runs in the top of the 10th and went on to win the game, their fourth win against the Red Sox in three days. They are now 5-1/2 games up on Boston with more more game in the series to play tomorrow afternoon (the only one of the games which I won’t get to see).

And now, back to work. I have about an hour and a half to finish up what I’m doing before I get into the shower, and have myself some breakfast.
