That’s how I spent the majority of the weekend. The drink was my friend and enemy this weekend, and I think the pollen finally hit me as well.
If I Seem Quiet
My day is completely scheduled today. I am involved with college recruit interviews so I will be away from my keyboard.
ITP Flickr Pic
I took a lot of good pictures of my friend Betsy on Saturday, but she has yet to give me the permission to post any. Other than that there is nothing new to display. I have been extremely lazy and need to snap out of it.
Because I Didn’t Remind You, And No One Reminded Me
Funny how some things happen. Normally around Daylight Savings’ beginning and/or end I make a mention for people to check the batteries in their smoke detectors. I didn’t do that last week when the time sprung forward. Yesterday morning I heard the faint chirp of a battery on its last leg. After a few moments of waiting I pinpointed the chirp and replaced the battery. In all honesty I actually forgot that there was a smoke detector in the room where I found the dying battery, so the chirping was a real useful notification.
A Tale Of Two Brackets
I filled out two NCAA brackets this year. The two brackets were filled out about twelve hours apart. To prove the somewhat random nature of my selections the brackets are not identical (not intentionally).
I one contest I am in first place.
In the other contest I am tied for twenty-sixth place.
How about them apples? Sadly, I am in first for the contest that has not prize money. Not that it matters much, I seriously don’t think that I will be on top come the end of next week.
Both brackets do have the Florida Gators winning it all, so at least if that happens I’ll be pleased.
The Amazingly Late, The Amazingly Annoying Race
Was it basketball? Was it golf? I don’t know. All I know was that Amazing Race started about forty-five minutes late.
And so began the post Rob and Amber era of this Amazing Race.
How was it possible for a team to be so far behind mid-show, and then finish first?
How was it possible for a team to not read their clue, go right past the thing they needed to complete a task, and then finish second?
I was so ready to see Mirna and Chmirna get bounced from the race, but nooooo they finished first. I really, really don’t like them.
And then to top things off this was not an elimination leg.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – crummy because I feel like ass
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Neutral Milk Hotel — “In The Aeroplane Over The Sea”
