TU hired a new basketball coach today. It's Doug Wojcik, an assistant from Michigan State. It seems like a good hire to me but only time will tell. I'm mainly just glad that all the coach drama is finally over. I'm ready to move on.
Randy and I went to the lake over the weekend. We have friends who have a place at Lake Eufaula. They are nice enough to let us crash there every now and then. Our main goal for the visit was to help out with some of the chores. That means I spent a large part of the weekend staring fires. See, there are lots of trees on our friends' property which means there are lots of leaves on the ground. It's easier to burn them than rake 'em up. So, I was able to use my fascination with fire for good.
I'm running the NCAA bracket pool (Oops, I mean I'm doing the "annual report") at the office this year. The guys who have done it for years are sick of messing with it so I stepped up. It's a pretty big pool. There were about 75 people in it last year. It's a lot of work because for some reason this pool has been set up where people get to make new picks for each weekend of the tourney. I think it's a dumb system and it makes managing the pool a nightmare but that's how it's always been done. I'll go along for now but I'm thinking of doing a traditional pool next year so I can manage it on the internet. If people don't like it, tough. I'm sure plenty of people will still play.
The sweater I am wearing today is full of static cling. My sweater is clinging to my body and it's driving me crazy. I've been irritable all day because of it. Stupid clingy sweater. This sweater has never given me problems before. I think it's because the last time it was washed it was mistakenly put in the dryer. I usually just hang it to dry.
Wow, that was an exciting story (sarcasm alert.) I suck.
So, I'm done with "The Apprentice". I've missed the last 2 weeks because I just didn't feel like watching. I Tivoed them but I realized I didn't care so I deleted them without watching. I think I'm going to cancel my season pass. That was an interesting show during to first season, but now it's just non-stop product placement and the contestants are terrible. These people all seem so incompetent. It's a wonder any of them have survived this long without accidentally killing themselves.
You know, when I started writing this, I could have sworn I had a good story to tell. Clearly I was wrong or I forgot what I was going to say. This one just feels like it really sucks. Well, they can't all be winners.
