Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

It’s March — and I’m Mad!

This sport of ‘basketball’ you speak of — is that right, ‘basket-ball’? Yeah. Never heard of it. Not interested.

(Yeah, yeah — I know what I wrote in my last post, about ‘March Madness’ and watching hoops all weekend and all that bullshit.

But that was before — before, I say, before — my very most favoritest team went in the goddamned tank in the first round. In an upset. An aptly-named, thoroughly infuriating ‘upset‘.

So, no basketball talk around here this weekend. The sport is dead to me. Dead. At least until next fall. March Madness can suck my ass.)

So, instead, I’ve begun my annual springtime sadly obsessive ritual — preparing for fantasy baseball drafts. Which basically involves buying a couple of magazines written by guys even more sad and obsessive than I am, and then spending several hours with other guys who are more or less exactly as sad and obsessive as I am, drafting our teams of professional athletes who don’t give a damn about why or whether we obsess about such nonsense. Oh, and they’re probably on steriods now, too, apparently.

(And you thought blogging was an exercise in pouring time down the toilet. Folks, this is tip-of-the-iceberg stuff around here. I waste more time before nine am than most people waste in an entire fricking week.)

Anyway, that’s about all I’ve got for now. I’m still mourning the loss last night, and — I mean, for crissakes, just dribble the damned ball! Pass to your own fricking team, get your heads out of your collective ass, and for the love of sweaty gym shorts, reeeee-fucking-boooooound!

Sorry. The wound is still a little raw, apparently. I think I’ll just head off to bed now — I’m sure I’ll manage to think of something else for tomorrow. Or Monday. Tuesday at the latest. It’s just… honestly — the first fricking round? Come on! This frigging blows. Whose idea was this ‘basket-ball’ bullshit, anyway?

    hello all.

    i just thought i would start a letter to all the people i have on my favorites list to stop by my blog and take a look. it seems for some reason i am not getting any replies lately at my site. i try to post each day . i know that a couple of weeks ago blogger had a lot of problems and it might have scared some people off. so i am extending this invitation in hopes that we can get back together again. i wish every one a good day and a better year. if you are not sure of my url then here it is, .

    Uh oh. I don’t suppose you’re a Syracuse fan, are ya, Charlie? ‘Cuz my Catamounts actually won a game in the dance for the first time ever and I hope you’re not gonna make me feel bad about it.

  3. Wildcat says:

    Sorry, Charlie. I know how I feel when my team doesn’t make it to the Super Bowl or is the losing team in the Super Bowl. Friggin’ sucks would be dead-on-balls accurate!

    I understand dude. Much as it may upset some here in Missouri, I am a big KU Basketball fan.

    Where the hell is Bucknell, anyway?
