I can’t believe it…the ‘cuse went into the big east tournament playing quite frankly very poorly…and end up winning 4 games by a total of eight points…and in the process knocking off the top ranked team in the country…before the tournament I figured they had missed the NCAA’s

And where headed for the NIT’s, now no one can deny their slot in the big dance…they have the automatic conference bid…amazing…there have been stories floating around that G-mac is over rated…lets see what those stories say now…

I had a very bad day physically…just didn’t get done what I wanted, needed to get done…dang…

Work was work, move to the next subject

I have tomorrow off…yip, yip, yippee…

Had a special service at church where the worship team was involved…went well…

Got home and the ‘cuse was down 15 to G-town in the opening minutes of the second half…almost didn’t watch…but as Matt-G was getting some quality minutes (he’s a local kid) decided to watch…the ‘cuse never lead in the game until Eric-D got a lay up off a pretty feed from G-Mac with 13 seconds to go…they won by 1…they that is the ‘cuse have had an amazing run in the big east tournament…not only have the won 3 games by a total of 4 points...and knocked off the #1 ranked team in the country... but they were probably on the outside looking in for the big dance going into the tournament and now they should be a solid in…

I just had a horrid day, I got too little sleep last night, was awakened by the alarm clock (I hate it when that happens (I am a night person who by the requirements of what I am beat at is forced to work days)), and although felt physically decent this AM was in a very bad place emotionally…work was a total bitch…. but at 4:30 PM all changed (quitting time).

Pay day, cashed check and went to the grocery store, with intent. I knew what I wanted for supper, have been in a takeout mood of late…haven’t wanted to be bothered by cooking and planning meals…but tonight maybe I’ve turned the corner on that…

Among other purchases I acquired tonight some baby greens, an English cucumber, some nice roma tomatoes, a bottle of California French dressing, and some store made seafood salad…which were combined and highlighted with a very generous grinding of fresh sea salt on the veggies…a very nice dinner…

Have relaxed and just chilled the rest of the night…night all…

Dang what a day, the out bound to sunny California was already there when I got in, and the paper work was snafu’d, and the customer service rep who had control had a day off…dang…and the driver spoke limited English…I explained that the load was light, I explained to him that I understood the need to load so he could scale his weight in accordance with the California bridge law, and that I had loaded several 100 trailers to old California with no problems…first he was the maiden aunt type of driver who was all over me during the load…and then I was almost done he had a hissy fit and insisted that I re-arrange it…it as loaded righteous…with the light load and my load pattern he could have scaled easy…but he just won’t let it rest…plus he got in my face…I rarely lose my cool with a driver but I did this time…I told him to back off…get out of my face right now…which he did…I re-arranged as he wanted…after all he’s pulling the load but he should have told me from the beginning…and the absolute truth is that he has less chance of scaling the load the way he wanted it loaded then the way I wanted to load it…but screw him…if he gets a fine it’s his arse not mine…and I will have a conversation with the rep who arranged the load and telling her I don’t want to see that driver again…in 26 years I’ve only made that request…heck…demand once before…

Despite the fact that the rest of the day went…well not great but normal…which is to say messed up…I was in a very narrow…very ugly place tonight…and the chores I had intended…the practice I had intended to go to…well just not in the right frame of mind to attend to…

Work today went…well…at work I seem to be caught in a vortex of time and space that makes me constantly repeat the same problems…answer the same questions…and feel the same frustration…despite the fact that I felt like I had been drug through a knothole backwards I did go to worship team practice…and I was he best of days and the worst of days…although by enlarge I always enjoy practice…tonight was not my fav…we were working on a new song which was coming along pretty well but not to the leaders approval…now we have no intend of using this one anytime quick…but rather then leave it go …we beat the snot out of it…came to a righteous conclusion…but really over worked it…have a special service to attend to Friday as well as 2 on Sunday…and I think the time could have been better spent…honing what we need to do now rather then what we might do later… but had a good time none the less…watched big break V…a weird show…not one of my favs but a player went out more because of an injury rather then lack of skill…and my fav went out on king of Vegas…ah a long shot to be sure…but there you go…

Weird…cat Aggie Sue has never been much of a lap cat… which is a good thing she is part Maine Coon and is very large bodied and weighs about 20 LBS. But since the passing of her archrival the diminutive Lilly Bell (maybe 5 LBS> wringing wet) she has turned into a lap cat…she just wanders around with no purpose at all…and although she has tried to create a rivalry with cat Smoky…Smoky the lover cat isn’t interested…must consider going to the ASPCA and getting a cat that Aggie Sue can hate…(hehe)

I really had a bad weekend physically…and although I felt better today…and work went fairly smooth…I was in a very strange place tonight…just didn’t have the resolve to do what I should have…well tomorrow is another day…

Not a good day, went to bed last night before 9 and got a good night’s sleep but it didn’t seem to matter…awoke very shaky and commitments to church although went well were a real struggle…some noodles and polish sausage for lunch…and have just snacked for supper…just not hungry…but more just not interested…feel better of late but still way below par…

Nite all
