Four days to go!

Lots of laundry and packing tonight, because I'm heading home (to my real home) after work tomorrow for Spring Carnival (I really hope I get to hear pipers-- like virtually all CMU alumni I have a weakness and it's been a really long time)... and the game.  Right now, Angels in the Outfield (the original, not the corny remake) is on TCM.  You know, the comedy about heavenly intervention helping the Pirates.

I don't expect any heavenly intervention will cause the Pirates' 19 year old losing streak to end this season, like in the movie.  I actually don't really believe in angels (at least, not in the sense of the movie and popular culture in general).  But it does warm the cockles of my heart to see Hamerschlag Hallthe Cathedral, and the Carnegie museum/ library complex (all sooty and dark!) lurking in the background in the scenes filmed at Forbes Field,  It's like a little slice of comfort pie for this child of the Mon Valley that considers Oakland & Squirrel Hill her real home.

I'd better go put my wash in the dryer.  Four days to go!
