    Oh, and the question was raised about when we need to hit 7500. I believe when I first proposed 7500 as a goal, I said by midnight on the 21st. So, we've got 26 1/2 hours, and only 248 to go, not even 10 an hour. Wow, we might make it.

    Oops, make that 237.

    Now I'm going to go watch the Celtics.

    Hey bb, if you don't head out tomorrow, you can still come to my party tomorrow night. It's on no matter the weather. I'm planning on baking a lemon chess pie, among other things.

    BB has been sighted?

Once they declared a snow emergency, I backed out. If we still lived in Cambridge and I could have walked to the T, I was there, but the 2 miles to the outdoor T stop where I now live? No way. Sorry KG. I considered calling a cab and I called the Newton police to find out if it was even possible to park anywhere near the T tonight (it's not). I punted. We ate $180 worth of Celtics tickets. Man.
    I haven't been to a Celtics game since moving to the area. I was always a Showtime fan so don't feel any great connection to them. Red Sox a different story. Pats too I guess.

    so, I checked in with the parents about an hour ago and they were on the outskirts of Philly and had just passed by the place where the Eagles play. (I can't keep up with all those corporate names)

    Let's go Duke!!!

    Yeah, the corporate sponsorship deals are kind of humorous. Someone buys the rights for ten years and gets taken over 6 months later. Or goes bankrupt.

    Hi Ez! I like her!

    Just got back from the Wizzard's game. Not nearly as much fun as watching Duke play, but an interesting diversion. 76'ers won by 4, even without Elton.

    On the road at 7 tomorrow morning for lunch near the Meadowlands at noon.

    Ezzie(not to be confused with Ozzie ), I'll tell your parents hey for you when I see them in the afternoon!
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    Go To Hell carolina, Go To Hell!

    I'm sitting here reading my mom's basket of Christmas cards. You know what I really hate? Those stupid brag-n-gag newsletters that all the pretty people send.

    I really despise reading about violin-playing-travel-soccer-science-fair-winning-tropical-island-vacationing-second graders. Enough already! Just send me a cute picture of your kid. I don't care how he or she did in the spelling bee last April. Nor do I care how many tomato plants you put in your garden this spring.

    Better wake up beverages are: bloody mary, screwdriver, mimosa, beer on cereal. Just don't do them all at once.
    And what time is it? It's time now (for wine, right?).

    Looked at the Weather Channel tonight. Hope you made it safely. The weather looks dreadful. NY area airports have 2.5-3.5 hour delays, or more.

    I'm also hoping the travel gods shine on Mr. DA -- he's braved 7" of snow+ice in Seattle this morning (which is 3x more than i've ever seen in my 5 years out there), to travel through Denver to Omaha today, where he's being greeted with a 60 mile drive through freezing rain/sleet (he's on the road right now,) to find me and spend the long weekend with my family.

    He must love me, to go through all of that crud just to sit around and drink coffee with his in-laws.
    Great effort on his part.

    Send some of that warm air a couple hours north, please! You can keep the arctic cold, tho....
    You could drink Fat Tire instead of worry...
