Procrastination Brackets

Hey Gang,


Many people follow March Madness, for me it's more like March I'm Not Mad, Just Disappointed.  I don't dislike basketball, I just don't understand the game, know the rules, am familiar with any teams, players or coaches.  I do, however, like everything else about the sport.

I know that March Madness has brackets, that people will talk about, argue over and bet with one another on.  The brackets are organized and the winners and losers are clearly defined.  It's a chart that is easy to understand.  I have started using these brackets to help me with every day decisions.

If I need to blog, but I also have the desire to do nothing I will put both those decisions in competing brackets.  It turns out that nothing gets to go on to the next level.  Now doing nothing will be competing with showering, as it turns out doing nothing won that round too.  Finally doing nothing has came to the final bracket and is now competing with doing something, once again, doing nothing wins.

It's a fun way to spend the day, every day.  It's fun and it's like almost like playing sports.

Go Team!

Who News???

Hey Gang,

I had taken a hiatus from writing my blog.  Turns out, the library has strict rules on using their internet when they are closed.  I am back and "plugged in" thanks to McDonald's free wifi and a smart phone that was abandoned in exchange for healthcare.

From what I can tell, there are two types of "news" going on these days.  One is real and one is fake. No one is really sure which is which, though.  People with the big-wheeled trucks that eat glutton don't listen to the same news that people who drive small cars and have lots of dietary restrictions listen to.

Spying and espionage is the latest topic that everyone is discussing.  One group thinks the other group has been meeting with Russia diplomats and the other group thinks they are being monitored through household appliances.  I am not sure who to believe, but I did get a weird vibe from a drinking fountain last week.

This Friday, March 17th, there are rumors that little green men will be using weather patterns as a guide to hide pots of gold around the globe.  It is said to scare some people so much that they will choose to spend the entire day intoxicated and stereotyping an ethnic group.  I will be watching it all in the comfort of home, my 1968 Gremlin in the Walmart parking lot.

Stay safe and remember to be green (the color, not the movement- that has been de-funded.)
