Sleepless Week on Horizon

The week of September 14 is looking like one in which I won't get a lot of sleep or be terribly productive. For September 13, I have a jury duty notice -- I won't know until the night before whether I actually have to show up or not. September 15 is the group outing to Spamalot in San Jose. September 16 I have a ticket to the Giants-Rockies game (likely to have significant playoff implications) purchased with a gift card received from Holiday Inn as a premium for enough stays -- essentially I earned a game ticket by staying at the Holiday Inn Select for Anticipation. But that's two late nights in a row that week, which is likely to have me a little zombie-like that week. In retrospect, I probably should have used the gift card on a different game, but the number of significant home games left this season isn't large, and the prices of games against the Dodgers (previous weekend) are significantly higher than the midweek game I booked. Thanks to the gift card, I have a seat in lower box section 107 -- quite a premium seat roughly looking down on first base. I've never been in such a high-rent district before.
