Other Life Stuff

Basketball season began, signifying the beginning of winter for me. Fall league ended, signifying…uh, a week devoted to setting up winter league and New Year Fest. This is the busy time of year in Phoenix for disc. My team went 0-3 after winning the play-in game, but it was a fun team and my favorite part of finals is catching up with people I don’t see too often. You can’t do that when you’re actually playing in finals.

I have sort of a consternated grimace going on there. Also, I’ve seen several pics of me gripping the disc with both hands after catching. It’s not an action that I’m not conscious of. I find that interesting.

Also, there was Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary, which I seem to be celebrating until the end of the year.
