  1. Things that make ya go "hmmmmmm...."

    I go to the bank almost every morning, before the office opens, because with the drive thru I can make the deposit and still get to work on time.

    This bank is right on the main street, one block from the police station. There are two LARGE signs, one each side of the exit drive, that state "Right turn only."

    And every time I am there, someone turns left. What is that about? Illiteracy? Supremacy? Drives me bug dump! At least once a week someone will hold ...

    So I was there last night (Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008) at the East West Bank Classic here in LA. Kudryavtseva vs. Cibulkova was the last match on stadium court. Why this match was chosen for the stadium court over some of the more intriguing match-ups on the outer courts earlier in the day is beyond me. One thing is for certain, whoever is running the L.A. event doesn’t know what they’re doing – AT ALL! Last night the crowd was very sparse, there were only a few vendor booths unlike years past, ...

    In April, I went to the doctor.

    The doctor looked at my chart and said I needed to update my data. So he made an appointment for me, with a medical lab, and the following week I was off to the lab. Cost: $79.00 office visit.

    No one mentioned fasting - not the doctor, not the lab. So had to reschedule my appointment since I had coffee that mornig.

    Two days later, back to the lab, get the tests. Cost: $100.00

  5. Tournament 4 - Summer Training

    I had another good tournament last weekend. I played another 3.5 in Vancouver, WA. My arm felt a lot better this time. I think I will be able to serve normally very soon. It's SO exciting.

    My first match was really low quality. I was exhausted after last weekend, and hadn't hit a ball in five days. I used the first match as a warm up, basically, and was owned 2 and 1. My serve was all over the place. The guy I played said after the match that my groundstrokes were really impressive, ...
