|1031 - Sometimes I scare myself.|
I've almost got all the pieces in place to do something that's so evil, so wrong, that it scares even me just a little. Nevertheless, it's something that Must Be Done, if for no other reason than I need to get a picture.
I also need to find an excuse to spring it on the world before the middle of August. It's too evil to hold in...
current mood: evil
You're going to dress up in a Houston Astros uniform, and perfect your scuffball in time to take the team to the World Series?
(Says the mink, being equal to all the evil going around.)
Remember, as a baseball player, you get to scratch your crotch, and no one cares if you don't wear a dancebelt.
I read the first part of michaelmink
's post to Eric, and he said "No, that's not evil, just very unlikely."
Seriously, though; will you at least tell a trembling world whether the evil is computer-related or costume-related?
Computer related...and fairly obscure.
(I don't know what I could do that the world would find more evil than I already have in the costuming arena...)
Eric told me that he called you and wormed the secret out of you.
If you do spring it on the world before August, I'll tell you what I said when he told me.
The first part of that post is a reference to Mike Scott, an Astros pitcher that was truly dominating during the 1986 season (he won the game that clinched the NL West championship with a no-hitter). Some allege that he illegally scuffed the balls he pitched in order to make them move more sharply as they were thrown; he was never caught at it, despite being checked many times. This is relevant because michaelmink
is a New York Mets fan, the team that beat the Astros to go to the World Series in 1986.
Since Eric and I know nothing about baseball, we would never have figured this one out.... Thanks.
