the weather threatened to rain at a moment's notice, so it kept me indoors most of the day. i did however visit the cafe during lunch to get some food before coming back home, where i called the unemployment office to reactivate my benefits. there's not much money left, i'll only be receiving a single check next week, but any little bit helps. i've just been trying to think of ways to save some money. yesterday i was on the phone will the cable company, trying to see if i could downgrade my account. i could, but they'd send somebody over to put a trap on my line, so even if i wanted to secretly receive more channels than i'd be paying, it wouldn't work.
julie came by in the evening to catch the red sox game. i made some spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, we ate in the air conditioned comfort of the living room. the cleveland indians were in the lead but the red sox found their offense and came back to tie and eventually take the lead. that's before our relief pitching took over and ruined everything, allowing the indians to come back and tie as well, and to finally win the game by a grand slam homerun even when we had our "closer" keith foulke pitching.
