Not exactly waxing poetic


I apologize for the lack of substance on this blog this week.  I promise to resume some substantial, witty, entertaining posting someday soon.  But until then, this is all I have for you:

– I’ve filled out 3 March Madness brackets.  In one of them, in honor of Andy Bernard, I chose Cornell to win it all.
– This year, I remembered that a 16-seed team does not mean that “16 out of 16 times, THEY WIN!”
– I made mango chicken curry in Duane’s crockpot for “Lost” last night – but I added couscous to the mix, making it all an oatmealy-consistency.  Failure.  But at least it was curry-flavored oatmeal?
– Speaking of “Lost” – oh my word.
– I love interviewing the East Nasty of the Week each Wednesday night.  I’m practically Barbara Walters.
– If I were a man, I’m pretty sure I would grow a beard.
– I’m really sad for Natasha Richardson’s family.
– Last week, I found a watercolor of an owl that I made when I was 6.  It is RAD.  I framed it and hung it over my bed.  Not to toot my own horn, but I was like a young Picasso.  Toot, toot.
– For some reason, no one reads my blog on Thursdays.  It is very strange.  Readership plummets on Thursday every single week.
– A kick in the ass is a step forward.
– It is noon, and time to get dressed.

    I love Parent Trap – both versions.

    Have a great day, Annie!

    It’s Thursday and I’m reading. Which means I’m procrastinating working. grrr…

    And oatmeal-ish or not – it was yummy. A chef friend of mine once said, “Never apologize for the way your food turns out… most people will think it’s supposed to be that way”.

    I don’t really have anything to say, I just want you to know that I read your blog on Thursdays.

    And as a huge Liam Neeson fan, I too feels sad for Natasha Richardson’s family.

    You mean, “hoot hoot,” right?

    I totally love owls. And curry. And getting dressed at noon.

    Despite remembering the 16th seed rule, you still picked Chattanooga over UConn in our bracket…you are awesome! Hopefully you still read comments from last week’s posts…

    “I went to Cornell . . . ever heard of it?”
