Friday Madness

Guess who's tired of March Madness? That's right - me. I don't watch sports and I certainly do my best not to participate in them so why are some dumb-ass (yes, I'm probably going to hell for thinking NCAA basketball is dumb) basketball games preempting my favorite TV shows? Huh? WHY?!?!

Oh well, it's given me a chance to catch up on some stuff in my DVR that was in danger of being erased. Also, I was one of the fortunate ones who were able to get Twilight via Netflix this week so I've been jumping up and down and yelling "In Your FACE!" enjoying that as well. (insert dreamy sigh)

In a surprisingly mature move, Muffin's Dad answered his cell phone Wednesday night and confirmed that we are still on for a Muffin Visit. Frankly, I was surprised but happy to know that Muffin's little heart was going to stay intact this weekend. She's super excited and that's what is important. (insert big fat sigh)

In other news, a good friend may come and visit me this weekend. It's been a while since I have been able to hang out with any of my old friends and I really hope she can make it. Somehow, it's not the same to hang out with work acquaintances - they just don't "get" me as well as my school buddies. Perhaps because we haven't shared as many illegal fun activities together. Who knows...

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Big fat sigh. I'm so happy for Muffin! Hope she has a great time. And hope you do as well. I think we all have friends that "get" us better than others.

And, ahem, I suffer from March Madness. I've got it bad. Big game tonight. Got my team colors on. Sorry. At least it doesn't last long. Like football season.

I will admit, that for most of my life, I was a sports addict. I played a lot of sports and even without a man around, I watched Sports Center religiously...then my kids got a bit older, and I started noticing all the loser/asshole parents at all the ball parks who just LIVED for sports...and all the people in town who LIVED for our professional sports teams- as though they were actually a part of it...as though it really mattered. And something clicked, and I simply do not watch sports anymore.
Maybe its because for years I was actually part of a team and I don't have a void to fill? I don't know the reason, but I'm with you...
and so happy for Muffin. Hope he comes thru!

oh- I do watch my own kids' sports teams :) I just don't identify with it anymore.

Of all the sports to watch Basketball is my favorite...not that we do a lot of watching. A couple of years back we were way big into it. But I can't watch sports with my husband...all his yelling, screaming, cheering and disappointment was just about enough to give me a heart attack...so I had to give it up.

How very exciting for Muffin!!!! I hope they have a great time together...she deserves it.
