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.
...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....

Are you in the Midwest?
Not exactly, I'm in the middle of Texas, near Dallas/Fort Worth.

Chicagoland might see some snow on Friday. I'm gonna start doing doughnuts in the parking lot while spraying an aerosol can out the window and using an incandescent light bulb. This global warming needs a boost.

I can take my kids camping, to the beach or to the city in under 90 minutes.
Eh, you can do that here if you have a very loose definition of the word "beach" or "city" or "camping".

Beach = rock quarry?
City = Walmart?
Camping = Pop up camper at Walmart?

Do you really trust a man who tells you you are going to get 12 inches tonight?

NO, but I have heard tales. The daughter of a friend lives there. Apparently squirrels are legitimate dinner food.

I don't think this woman has a leg to stand on. Part of Hooters is having hot waitresses ... not ones with buzz cuts and huge scars on their head. If you work at such a place you understand this. It's almost like a stripper complaining who lost her arms and legs that she was fired because all she could do was go up on stage and be rolled out in a wheel chair.

Vet just called. MIa is open on the operating table right now (he was on speaker phone). Tumor isn't on her kidney, it's in/on her intestines and maybe her spleen. He said it'll be dicey as to whether he'll be able to remove the tumor, save her spleen, and reconnect the portions of the intestine that he has to cut in order to get the tumor. He added that it could be a long, difficult recovery.

I gave him permission to go for it.(What else am I supposed to do?)

This isn't looking good.

I hate to say this, but... I do NOT want to be served by a waitress with a big fresh incision on her head.
