Life is pretty good. Even I (born to complain) have to admit that. But it gets better on days when I donít skip lunch, and better yet on days when I can sleep in. So today wasnít all that good a day. But life, still, is pretty good.

The sleeping part, thatís my fault. I try to do too many things in one day, and I start too many of them too late in the day to get them done. I can never talk myself into going to bed while thereís still something left to do. Back when I worked in retail, I had the same problem at work. I didnít sleep there, but I couldnít bring myself to leave the store until all the money was counted and all the shelves were stocked. Maybe thatís where it started, the sleep phobia, but I think Iíve always been that way.

The eating part I have down, most of the time. Todayís exception happened because just as I was about to fix a nice salad for lunch, the phone rang. And then it rang again and again, and by the time I could fix lunch it was too close to dinnertime. So I grabbed a few snack veggies and planned an early dinner, but my routine was disrupted and I felt out of sorts the rest of the day. If I could get the eating and sleeping to happen the way theyíre supposed to, and both on the same day, I think life would be even better. Itís already pretty good.

Welcome. C'mon in (if you dare).

Idolizing entertainers is a sore spot for some people, and thereís no doubt it can go too far. However cynical you are, though, you cannot doubt the sincerity and depth of feelings of those who were at the Michael Jackson memorial today (and most of those who watched). It was a beautiful and moving ceremony, worthy of his legacy of more than four decades of music, plus the other things he gave to the world and ways he changed the culture. It would be wrong to underestimate his impact.

Giants 3, Marlins 0. As good as the Giantsí pitching has been this season, itís gone to another level so far this month. Barry Zito very nearly completed the teamís third shutout in their last five games but needed a little help from Sergio Romo (who has closer stuff but doesnít usually fill that role) to slam the door. Thereís nothing that seems more like pure baseball than a well-pitched game played with tight defense. You have to score runs to win, and the Giants arenít very good at that a lot of the time, but a lot of the time they score just enough to win. Theyíre getting better, in fact, at taking advantage of scoring opportunities, which will be the key as they head to the second half of the season.
