Really random thoughts, and when I say RANDOM...

*You'd think that people at a high level of study, like DOCTORAL students, would be spot on when it comes to, oh, I don't know, actually READING things like, you know, instructions and stuff. Not really the case, evidently. I'm developing a tic.

*The days are getting longer, which is a good thing for people with Seasonal Affective Disorder. Soon, the sun will rise before 7AM, and set later, and I will become a morning person again. Yippee-fucking-hooray.

*Say what you will about Princess Diana, I know she was a mess. But I'm still sad she died and I miss her.

*No, I am not a huge fan of inbred English royalty and don't really give a shit about useless, outmoded figureheads. But I still miss Di.

*Last night, I had a dream that I went to New Orleans and made an ass of myself, jumping around, drinking hurricanes, and shouting things like "Paaaar-taaaayyyy!" which is so out of character it kind of makes me think I've channeled some dead frat boy. Eugh.

*I am reasonably sure the Red Sox are doing stuff behind the scenes about getting us a shortstop, center fielder, some hope for 2006, but it worries me that I haven't heard anything. It's quiet. Too quiet.

*The Bruins still suck.

The days ARE getting longer...I noticed the other day. Do you realize that you never mention the Celtics?

Oh Dear, the Celtics. I used to be an absolute fanatic.

Now, here's my thoughts on the C's.

I LOVE Paul Pierce. And they're a fun, young team. The only reason I don't watch as much these days, or watch enough to comment anyway, is that I cannot STAND listening to Tommy Heinsohn anymore. The man has driven me away. What. An. Idiot.

Having said all that, I do love basketball. I do root for the C's, but I don't really follow it anymore.

The NBA is basically a bunch of thugs these days, too, have you noticed?

Now, NCAA hoops...that is MUCH more fun. Plus: it ENDS. NBA goes on forever, seems like all summer long, and it is BORING.

The NCAA has a big tournament in March, it's a BLAST, and then it's over.

Plus, it's good hoops.

Sorry you asked?

Ah the night Princess Diana died. Good times. Ah waking up the day after: not good times.

RE: New Orleans you weren't dreaming. There's video.

I was depressed for weeks after Di died. But I think that was because of the endless fucking airplay of Elton's updated 'Candle In The Wind'. Made me want to drive at high speeds through a french tunnel just to get away from it......

The Bruins have, in fact, invented a whole new way to suck. And they are excelling at it.
