A look into the future?

Normally my baseball fix is provided by Major League Players, taking things seriously, usually only on TV, though I do occasionally get to live games, as I did in May, when I managed to see the Dodgers win, which was nice. Mind, seemingly they’ve done plenty of that this season, almost got boring lol! No, seriously, its nice, but yes, if it doesnt happen in the playoffs now, it is going to be a letdown to some degree, for sure. Not that I’m competitive, and normally prefer to support the underdog, but never mind…

But at this time of year, I tend to get my baseball fix from a much younger age group, from people from all over the world, not just the US, though to be fair, half the teams are from the US, but anyway… Yes, its Little League World Series time again. I know, everyone is so competitive, its just me that is so laid back about such matters, or so it seems? Fine, it might help if I had affiliation to one of these teams, but without that, nope.

Today though, for the youngsters (most are between 10, and 13) brought a different type of fun, meeting up with the ‘big boys’ from the MLB. Yes, tonight, St Louis, and Pittsburgh will play a game, not in the normal stadium in Pittsburgh, but in a stadium close to where the youngsters are playing, and it seems they’ve got a mass invite. What was fun today, was seeing the two groups interacting with each other. Some of the big names have played in the LLWS in the past, and some of this years teams will play in the MLB in the future, for sure.

I know, I know, a lot of it for the MLB players is probably just PR stuff, but its fair to say that everyone seemed to be enjoying it. I just find it all rather delightful, as I cant imagine many of our star soccer/football (depending on where you read this) players doing the same thing, with young 12 year old footballers. Maybe I’m doing them down, who knows, but I suspect not?

Right, video time. Maybe I shouldnt go with this, because time doesnt seem to have been kind to this group, but given I’ve never heard of a music festival at Ullapool, in the north of Scotland before, lets roll with it.

Oh fine, for those of a nervous disposition, an extended version of the original record

Young at heart?

Well, regardless of whether I am, or not, I’m not young in body. I’m 57, for heavens sake, more than twice the age poor Jean Harlow ever reached in this life. But thats not the point of this brief blog, its the amusing job interview I had today.

If I heard the line ‘Its a young office’ at my interview today, I heard it a dozen times, or more. Maybe it was, and judging by the glance I cast round the office post interview, seemingly it is, as I couldnt see anyone much the other side of 30, but as far as I know, strictly, age cant be used as an issue when applying for jobs. In fact, I know it cant, but beside the point, no, I dont expect to get any positive news back from my application somehow.

So, at this point, given it relates to this, I might as well slip the video in, here and now!

Well, looks like the last trip out as Ms Nicholls will now be happening tomorrow, for the medical screening, as I’ve heard nothing more about the job assessment on Wednesday, so… Yes, the next time I apply for any roles, or need to show ID, it will at long last be as Miss Carpenter! Can’t wait! And at some point next year, the first flight as Harlean is going to be something special. Mind, I probably need to get a job, and some money together for that!

Talking of money, if anyone has £75 ($113.52 at time of posting) to spare, I love this corset.

Yes, I know, its a thoroughly submissive look, but I love it all the same. And hey, I switch, and could probably quite happily full time sub if I got to wear that. Oh fine, technicality, I also need someone to tie me (tightly) into it, but thats beside the point!

I know, I love gorgeous corsets, what can I say? 😉
