Aw c'mon Jess. How many other states won't allow people to pump their own gas? ;-)

I get a bit defensive about this state. It is so diverse. South Jersey is full of farms and sections of NJ are the most expensive places in the country to live. The shore (not what you see on Jersey Shore) was a great place to bring your family and will be again. I love that everyplace is so accessible. I can take my kids camping, to the beach or to the city in under 90 minutes.

Mimi- this sounds like a great opportunity. They don't accept poeple they don't think will cut it.

How much of your trepidation is based on the fact that your family is currently on the west coast? You have been the stalwart to a lot of people lately and that will be harder from 3000 miles away. Chris' friends will be in Seattle but they will still be there when you come back.

If you do it, will you drive cross country and will you stop in Chicago on the way, please?

How is your kitty doing? Is she home or at the vet?

She's at the vet getting IV fluids, to get her in the best position possible for exploratory surgery tomorrow. vet won't say anything about expectations, just figures he has to open her up and see what's there to deal with.

even if it's inoperable, i want her sewn back up and sent home, even if it's just for a few a few days. And if she has weeks/months, even better.

Angela: So sorry to hear about Mia. I'm keeping her (and you) in my thoughts.

Everyone else: Thanks for the encouragement. Still waiting to hear from Harvard (no, for real) but yeah, I know I have to do it. You just don't say "no" to a full ride ivy league doctorate. You just don't.

Jess: I knew I could count on you to be a cheerleader for NJ. I've driven through a few times, plus the airport, but only on my way to elsewhere, so I can't say anything about it overall good or bad.

Pelly: Doubt I will drive. Done that a few times (cross country) and I don't think I'm up for it. If time/circumstances allow, I will do the train. It stops in Chitown to change trains.

If I do that I would likely schedule an overnight in Chicago and just catch the other train the next day. If I do that I want to see all my Windy City friends.

It stops in St. Paul also.::looking at Angela::

Again, it's a year away.

ok,college basketball fans. CBS has the title game tonight. Why are Charles Barkley & Kenny Smith the analysts? Nothing against them, I think they're great, but doesn't CBS have COLLEGE BBall analysts that they use all season long? Seems like a slap in the face to not use the college bball A-team to do the title game. Would be like Jimmy Johnson, Howie Long, & Terry Bradshaw working the BCS Title game. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

You know, I'd be pretty pissed if I were the college analyst/color announcer and this happened.

...Turned out a very watchable game, tho my team lost...lol...Congrats to Louisville and Patino....I agree about the analysts....ESPN's Colin Cowherd also spoke to the greed of the NCAA, by starting the game at 9:30, on a school night....
