I've been a little too busy to post much lately... busy, and totally lacking in material without regurgitating the same old game recap that's already been reworded 50 times on the RSS feed we all read. I was entrusted with the steering wheel at Go Jays Go on the weekend, and let's just say that the weak material made it easy for me. I was there at the Rogers Centre on Saturday and Sunday, spiffy new camera in hand, and there wasn't even anything worth photographing and posting. I'm getting disappointed in you, RC Jays fans. You're boring.

Tonight's Alcoholic Beverage Of The Game is the Killer Koolaid.

* 1 1/2 oz Vodka
* 1/2 oz Peach schnapps
* 1/2 oz Amaretto
* 3 oz Cranberry juice cocktail

This was my favorite drink when I was a broke university student. Maximum buzz, minimum cash.

(And now for something totally off topic...)

I've missed half of the game because of this little bugger, who I've been keeping an eye on for the last day and a half:

No shit, I found a baby blue jay next to my deck yesterday afternoon. He doesn't have his tail feathers yet and is too little to fly. I'm trying to keep him in my yard, because he hopped over to the neighbor's yard last evening, and proceeded to have a near-death experience with their cat, who, mercifully, is a pitiful hunter.

I've had to snag the baby jay up about five times now, after he's wandered over too far into feline territory. I think he's getting fed up of that; he squawks at me now. At least the parents leave me alone. I've fed them peanuts all winter, so they seem cool with me.

Might be time to try something a little different....

I know you're referring to Richmond-mania, but you know, I did LCBO sampling recently, and you should get your ISLAND ON!

Malibu Rum...Island Melon, 4 parts 7 UP and 1 parts malibu rum.

and you've got a tasty drink.

You're like Cito, managing the little Blue Jay.

Dan: good call. I went to Jamaica a few years ago, and I think I had every combination possible of rum, coconut rum, coconut milk, pineapple juice, banana, and... I don't even know what else. Sugary islandy goodness.

Eyebleaf: more like whoever manages the GCL Jays. :D

LJ, by nursing this Blue Jay back to health you should officially earn your ticket into the Pearly Gates. Well done!
