Opening day of the tournament, good luck with your brackets (unless you are in the pool and tehn I hope your crash and burn in the opening round).

Have a great time in Hawaii. You'd better leave it in good shape for me, though.

Just catching up and saw your story. I'm really glad you're ok. Vehicles are more replaceable than people.

Having not watched a single minute of college basketball all year, I don't think you have anything to fear from me. I chose Indiana to win it all. My justification is that they had a "1" next to their name.

I haven't watched much either but I did spend about 30 minutes filling out my bracket. I figure that should balance it out.

Have you bought a lottery ticket yet? Maybe you have a little bit of that luck leftover.

Now no school tomorrow for her b\c she has to be fever free for 24 hours. At least DW is off tomorrow so I can escape this black plague that is in my house!
Yuck. Prayers for a quick recovery for everyone.

Yes, the whole state is still in mourning.

They did very well on top of that.
First time in months that my afternoon did not $&(%...


but then the alarm went off this morning and it all went back to the way it was.

Don’t have to worry about me on that account. I tried to join in yesterday but Yahoo first wanted me to “reactivate” an account that I’m pretty sure I never had and then came back and said I had to wait 24 hours before I could login… It’s about there that I gave it up. I’m in a couple of local pools, though, so there’s still a reason to follow along (other then the excitement of the games that is )

I've never been much of a basketball fan, but I do enjoy watching the tournament. It is a great sports event.

We are not planning any sit down meals for most of our park days but since it's gonna be my birthday meal and we will get into the park before rope drop DW said ok.
DW wants to do the Luau at the Poly, is it worth the cost? They do have bottomless beer so we will need a cab too if we do it. lol.

The Dino section of it is one of the few “original” bits of Epcot left. If you want to get off your feet and into the air-conditioning for about twenty minutes, it’s a decent place to take a break; wouldn’t go out of my way for it for any reason though.

I get an extra week starting next year to bring me up to 4 total so it may be doable soon. Between all the brackets I've filled out I surely picked the winner in one of them.

Is it wrong that I always secretly wish I'd get sick this week? You know, just so I could do that and not feel like I'm just totally wasting a day.

I've got a 46" LCD hanging on a wall across the office. I have to turn my chair around to see it, but it does the trick.

Now if I could just unplug my phone and turn the computer off so I wouldn't have to turn my back to the TV and return my attention to my desk for any work related interferences.
