The weather is getting weirder. Snow in March is rare as hens' teeth in Ohio. Usually it's a bit cold and windy and damp but a blizzard? Not very likely. We got six inches of snow yesterday and six more today so far and predictions are that by Sunday night we could have ten to eighteen inches more. Needless to say, the Kay is not amused. The concert I was eagerly anticipating was cancelled. A perfect end to a less than stellar week. I'm hibernating and it isn't by choice. Poor Miss Ruby is a mound of white and my drive way is impassable. Just about everything that can be cancelled is cancelled. Argh!!! I can't wait for Spring.
* The primary and overload in other areas interrupted the this week's installment of How I Got to Be Me and next week I will resume it. It's come down to that I'm going to have to do this part in two installments because it's pretty complex.
* I'm looking at this past week's Democratic primary as a truly unattractive event. Then again, the powermongers will always be with us but I'll never really come to terms with that. I don't understand them. I've got this Mary Poppins kind of ideal that we get along and work together for the common good. Yes I am, at times, naive.
* It's basketball season and I'm cheering on the Buckeyes and the Cleveland Cavaliers! I've had an interest in basketball since I was tiny. My 6'3" daddy played semi-pro when I was small and I remember watching him play. It explains why I'm 5'10" (and shrinking), too. The Buckeyes' big man is 7-foot-tall freshman Kostas Koufos who hails from our fair city and is an alumnus of my and my kids' suburban high school. It's been predicted that he'll be an NBA draft pick in June but word is he wants to get his education first. The Cavs are lead by two NE Ohioans: LeBron James from Akron, just north of us, and Eric Snow who is from here. Both are truly fine young men who are well-known as much for their good works in their communities, particularly children, as they are for their prowess on the court. It does my heart good to see this. The Michael Vicks of this world annoy me greatly.
* If y'all are interested, check out My Damn Channel -- a quirky site with all sorts of weirdness. I particularly like the stuff that Harry Shearer of The Simpsons and Spinal Tap fame does. My favorites are The Silent Debates -- they make about as much sense as the real ones.
Hope y'all are having a great weekend!!!
