Thoughts as The Ford does some late night refining of a baseball preview section...

1.) How much does switching to Daylight Savings Time suck for us night folk? Sure, we get the hour back in the spring, but do bars stay open later then? Nooooo... Instead, hardworking folks like The Ford go into the office at 1 a.m. and end up leaving at 6 a.m., despite only doing 4 hours of work. It's tough to say, but sunlight is overrated. Screw the farmers. The Ford wants his sleep.

2.) Following the suggestion of a loyal TSTF reader (you know who you are, and if you don't there's nothing The Ford can do for you...), The Ford went grocery shopping Saturday. Got everything he needed, save his beloved turkey/cheddar Lunchables. While the store had them, they were selling for $2. Meanwhile, The Official Vending Machine Item of The Official Blog of The Ford sells for $1.75 in the Freep/DetNews machines. So, someone's trying to gouge The Ford; either it's the supermarket in Hazel Park, or the vending machine folks here. It's tough to say, but at least The Ford might benefit from his frequent lack of planning when it comes to dinner between deadlines.

3.) The Ford accepted his first friend invitation on myspace from someone he doesn't know. Is The Ford open to meeting new people, or simply caving in under the peer pressure of having the fewest "friends" among his peers? It's tough to say, but if you're an unknown woman with a myspace photo showing little-to-no clothing, The Ford already likes you. (Not so much, random band glomming onto The Ford's Michigan location...)

I recommend you take the quarter saved per Lunchable and throw it into a high-yield mutual fund, much akin to the one that kid from Pete & Pete sinks his extra penny from the Wendy's value menu into on the commercial.

Do you have any idea how bad for you those lunchables are???? Processed meat, Ryan, processed meat.
