My poor brackets. Here is your March Madness/road to Sweet 16 update. Perhaps we should call it, March sadness?
Updated Brackets, March Madness (CBS Sports) – Happy, happy that Michigan and Syracuse are still in it. I had no ties to Gonzaga except for my awesome bracket name, but I can’t help mourning their loss. I love underdogs.
This week has fun potential. Many people are celebrating Passover, pre-Easter festivities, and if you’re in Buffalo, pre-Dyngus Day preparations. I’ve never been a part of that whole business since I’m one of the 10 people from Buffalo who aren’t Polish, but I’m happy to be making a triumphant return home that very day. It’s old news now, but let’s take a moment to reflect on what could have been this year, had the Silver Fox made his full apology to the region a priority. I still love you, Anderson.
Dyngus Day Organizers Wanted to name Anderson Cooper PWP (Business First) – He would have made a great Pussy Willow Prince. Maybe that was the title that scared him away. Way to go.
Yeah. This is why he’s not coming.
The Communal Table: Rules, Tips, Etiquette (Bon Appetit) – The communal table at restaurants is a thing now. You need to beware of it. After my brush with a communal table, I felt the need to get educated about the do’s and don’ts of being forced to sit with a bunch of strangers, eavesdropping on your personal conversation. Read up, here.
7 Beers for Spring (Snooth) – Are we not ready for some new, refreshing alcohol in our lives? I’ve recently been gifting white wines to everyone, pretending that will force the weather to change, but so far, no luck. Let us all hold hands, and read this article about the brews we’ll be (shortly?) grasping on a patio somewhere. Of course, we’ll have a light jacket on, but who cares. Just get here, Spring!
Less Sleep Means Gaining More Weight (The Daily Meal) – By now, we all know that sleep connects to many other parts of our lives, but I just needed to post this as a reminder to myself, and any sleep haters out there (freaks!) that sleeping/napping/dozing IS an important part of life, and totally acceptable in society. Those aforementioned non-believers clearly never skipped a college lecture for the best nap of their lives. Now, in the words of Samuel L. Jackson, “GO the F*** to SLEEP!”
Sweet dreams, kids!
