Okay, general stuff and a Public Service Announcement on the blog… we are renting out our farmhouse in Columbia County again this summer, so if you know anyone in the New York City, Boston or New England area that would be interested in a summer getaway, by all means leave a comment on the blog, or respond to my email address. 4-5 bedrooms, a huge barn replete with fun stuff, 360-degree views of the mountains, and lots more. We’d like to have one renter for the whole summer – June 1 to Labor Day – but willing to do singular months if need be. I implicitly trust 90% of my readership, so if you guys have good leads, we’d rather do it through you friends than any other way.
As for this weekend, I have no idea who to pull for in the Final Four, as I don’t like any of the teams that much. We’ve suffered at the hands of all of them: UCLA throughout the ’60s, Florida (and Ed Cota’s complete ghost 5th foul) in 2000, Ohio State in 1992 (bleh), and Georgetown not just last weekend, but that utterly demoralizing loss in what would be Doherty’s last game as coach. Even so, I’ll probably pull for G-town, because I basically like their team, their coach, and they’re the underdog. A world where Billy Frickin’ Donovan has more championship rings than Roy Williams is a world that has lost its way.
I have submitted names to the other folks in the band, and we’re voting over the weekend. We each get to submit two, and then all four of us will vote for two (but not our own). I will report back as to the winner.
I am wearing a fleur-de-lis T-shirt and jeans from Lucky, and my least favorite color – and food – is olive. I am a Gemini and I hate hiking. That is all for this week.
