Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the grand finale of my 18 for 18 Challenge. I'm only including 17 outfits because as we all know, I cheated one day to go meet Dr. Brian May, but I'm glad I did!
And here is my outfit that I wore to the Red Sox game yesterday. All week as I had been wearing clothes, I'd been putting them in either the laundry or dry cleaning pile. By the end of the week, these were the only two pieces left. I looked at them, shrugged, thought to myself, "Well that could match," and figured that no one attending a Red Sox game would know any differently (or care for that matter) so I went for it! (And incidentally, it's this mixing and matching that inspired today's post title.

Holy moly - did anyone see the game? First, the Sox were down 4-0. Then they scored 2 runs so it was 4-2. Then in the bottom of the 9th inning, David Ortiz was at bat with 1 out and the bases loaded. He got this amazing line drive hit and all three of the base runners scored! Husband and I were jumping up and down and screaming! It was so much fun! We had pretty amazing seats too. Someone my father-in-law knows pulled some strings to get my sister-in-law some tickets for her birthday (she and one of her friends joined us). I took this picture from our seats with my iPhone (without zoom). Pretty nice!
Um, but I did have one complaint about yesterday. As we were walking through the Prudential Center (where we parked), we passed Barnes & Noble and I saw this poster.
Dave Mustaine, it seems, has written a book and on August 14 will be doing a book signing at this particular Barnes & Noble in Boston. For those of you (all of you) who don't know who Dave Mustaine is: he's the lead singer for the band Megadeth though he's perhaps best known for being kicked out of Metallica. Now, no offense to Dave Mustaine or anyone who happens to be a fan of his, but really? Really? Does the world really need a Dave Mustaine autobiography? Does anybody actually believe this guy wrote a word of this book? And now he's doing a book signing.
RT, seriously. You have a college degree. You use big words in interviews (that I have to look up occasionally!) and write songs about politics. At least you'd be able to write your own memoirs. Oh and it's not like the band you were in is anything to sneeze at either: certainly more impressive than Megadeth (who can't even properly spell their own band name!). Will you please just write a book and get yourself over to the U.S. to promote it? Just do it, Roger!
I'm shopping with a fellow princess today. Selecting an outfit is going to be rather odd - suddenly I have my whole closet to choose from! Crazy!
