Dear OSU Women's Basketball Team:

Congratulations on making it to yet another NCAA tourney. A bit of advise though-if you want to be the belle ofthe dance, make sure you wear shoes that will last the entire evening. Getting bounced in the first round-AGAIN!-is not the way to go. I am wondering if we need to rename the mascot to The Ohio State Choke-Eyes. Please to be fixing in the offseason.

Will maybe see you again next year (but maybe not),

Way to go OSU women. You made it to the Sweet Sixteen. You had a record setting 30-5 season losing all 5 games by a total of 19 points. We'll get to the Final Four next Year.

Let's Go Mich. State! And Tennessee, you better kick Rutger's ass good.

So Mrs. CB and I, while waiting for our gals to play, were watching a game between Liberty and DePaul. Liberty, an underdog team, beat Teh Ev01 Penn State last week so we enjoyed watching them play.

Mrs. CB: Go Liberty! Eat that Rene Portland!(we're not hatahs,really) Go Liberty!

Me: Uh, babe, Liberty was founded by Jerry Falwell. Originated as Lynchburg Baptist College.

Mrs. CB: I hate those fuckers! Go DePaul!!

Our gals won and are headed to Philly for the Sweet Sixteen. We toyed with the idea of driving there to watch the game, but my back said no, so we will be staying home to watch it.

I stopped to grab some wine and steaks on my way home yesterday. I decided to get us a "treat" as well since I was starting a vaca, and Mrs. CB will be starting spring break in about 24 hours. I asked for 2 flourless chocolate cakes, then realized that Mrs. CB is notsofond of Teh Cake. They were already boxed up, and I didn't want to tell the bakery person to put one back after all her hard work, so I am eating them both. Yay for PMS justification. And the wife? I got her some cherry pie. And she was more than happy ;)

This is why I hate driving in Columbus. Four accidents like this in 3 months. Dumbasses!

First of all, thank you all for your kind thoughts (and drugs). I am up and around, still limping, but a lot more mobile than I was a few days ago. I had to take a thooper-duper muscle relaxer yesterday and I suffered the most horribly vivid nightmares. I hate that shit I love that shit. I couldn't remember enough of it to ask [livejournal.com profile] aqua_blurr for her analysis, so AB, just pretend, okay?

Mrs. CB went up to her family's again yesterday leaving me alone with the boys. Basketball, naps, chili, naps, watching Fallen (spooky fun!), and snippets of "Moses" were about all I accomplished in my 24 hours of blissful freedom. Bring Mrs. CB back into the picture, rinse and repeat for my activities for today. I hate that ibuprofen makes me so freaking sleepy...we're talking coma sleepy.

My OSU gals won today and we will play [livejournal.com profile] speshulduck's Terps on Tuesday. My March Madness brackets are pretty much screwed already...stoopid spoilers.

I got absolutely no writing done at all, but I at least have a vision of the next episode of "Harlots". Just gotta get a challenge that it will fit;)

The wife comes home, we get her shit organized and then we settle in to listen to the OSU
Big Ten tourney game. Just as I am about to click off the tube, a message scrolls across the screen directing us to a channels that is going to show the game (FSN had scheduled to televise the tape-delay at fucking midnight!) Thrilled with this last-second stroke of luck, we settle in and watch the game. They lose in OT by 3 points. Damn. But the NCAA March Madness starts soon.

The OSU men DID beat the #1 men's team, ruining Illinois' unbeaten season. I'd apologize to all my Illinois friends, but it was really a good game.

In other news, I spent an enjoyable Fri. night chatting with friends while downing a bottle of Shirz. Watching Mariska Hargitay on Leno is okay. Watching her on Leno, drunk, and with snarky friends, priceless. Of course I got no writing done yesterday because I was hung-over, but it was actually worth it.

Time to go find something for dinner. BLT yumminess...with no "L".

We went to get groceries today, one of those "Let's stock the cupboards" kind of trips. It's funny hoe Crunch-n-Munch Butter Toffee always seems to sneak into the cart when we aren't looking. And nothing makes shopping more fun than speculating on the conversations that go on between our 5 cats. Greyson has such a gay boy lisp...

I just finished a tasty lunch of frozen waffles. And I went to make some coffee and discovered that there isn't even enough left for half a pot. I never know how much coffee we have because, apparently, my coffee sucks ass, so Mrs. CB always makes it.

Anyway, the interview went well. It was with the human resources department and they will pass the info onto the managers blah blah blah. They did give me pre-employment health history papers to fill out and outlined their hiring sequence...which I did NOT get the last time I interviewed, so I shall adopt a wait and see attitude. I hope it works out because I don't know how long I can go without killing someone at my current job. Orange really isn't my color and I think I'd be too popular in prison.

I have finally cleaned the house with the exception of our room. It only took three days due to constant distractions (cats, books, TV, pr0n, bball.) Daddy #3 just called and said they would be here in about an hour...just enough time to squeeze in a nap.

OSU women won again last night. What a game! One of the players on the opposing team contested a foul call by saying "Fuck me" and we watched, in what seemed like slo-mo, as the ref gave her a technical. The house went wild and the gal sat for 6 minutes. We have a big away game with my coaching girlfriend's team this Sunday. I will be watching it from my recliner.

Heading out early tomorrow morning. Mrs. CB wants to come back here instead of staying over. She wants to relax with the boys.

Nap time...I hate being old.

ETA: They called back to schedule the second interview already :)

It's 64 degrees here today and I am wearing shorts. And nothing else ;) I heard we are supposed to have flurries tomorrow, but I hope not. I have the windows open and the boys are going nuts. They love sitting in the windows and watching the birds divebomb the feeders.

Hope everyone had a great V-Day. While I was slaving over a hot stove for my favorite gal, I noticed two broken carnations sitting on the counter. Mrs. CB is the Junior class adviser and they sold V-Day carnations as a fund raiser and she was in charge of purchasing the flowers (thus the cat litter container full of flowers pic.)

"Those are for you," she said. "They were broken so I brought them home for you."

Gee....thanks? Mrs. CB- IG tix, CB- broken flora

Then after dinner she told me she had to go get more carnations because they had run out. I casually mentioned that if a box of chocolate didn't come home with her that I would change the locks.

Ah, the power of chocolate. One box of truffles (and the promise of a great dinner out and a flick), CB is a happy gal again.

In other news, the boys' eye infections are clearing up and I am starting to feel a little better. These antibiotics are killing my stomach though, which is impeding my consumption of Teh Red. But I have officially lost 32 pounds, so I am happy.

And my Bucks are still #2/3 in the nation. Only 12 more days...and a date with Penn State, til we hit tourny time.


ETA: We just found out that Mrs. CB's grandmother passed away. Rest in peace, G-Ma Loyal.

Mrs. CB and I celebrated V-Day last night so we could drink as much as we wanted without having to worry about having a hangover for work. I made steak, asparagus, and sauteed mushrooms. We had chocolate mousse and chocolate/hazelnut torte as well as a couple of chocolate covered strawberries.

Mrs. CB was shocked off her ass when I gave her the tickets for the concert. She had no idea the Indigo Girls were going to be in town and spent a little too much time caressing the tickets. I almost left the room to give them some privacy. Almost.

We are enjoying a cold, rainy day of basketball. A lot of people have teased me about my interest in the OSU women's team. The main interest, for me anyway, is a gal (Caity Matter in my icon) from a small town near my hometown. We wound up with season tickets right in front of her family and friends and cheering for Caity Matter always made me feel like I was home. Last Valentine's Day, her 15-yr old brother was killed in a car accident. The entire OSU Women's BBall community was devastated, including Mrs. CB and myself. Ricky had sat right behind me during the previous game. Ous paper ran a story on Caity and her family today. A beautiful story about a loving sibling relationship )

On a happier note, I have a gift for all the members of Teh harem and my f-list:

A kiss, flowers and some pussy )

Well January is over and I didn't wind up in the hospital. I am going for some kinda record here. With one month down in 2005, I thought I would revisit my New Year's Resolutions and see how I was coming along. Not as good as I thought

Smokey and I are getting ready to make another run to the vet. He still has an eye infection, but luckily, none of the other cats have caught it. Poor little fat boy.

Oh and GO!BUCKS! #2 in the nation-the highest we have ever been ranked in Women's Basketball. Eat that Rene Portland! and I meant that in the nicest way

My girls won again last night. This makes us 20-2 overall and tied for the lead in the Big Ten. As long as they maintain their current level of play, the Buckeyes should see significant post-season play. How long till March?

But Penn State getting creamed by the worst team in the Big Ten just makes my week. Sorry about your luck there, Rene. My solution for you? More drinkers, druggies, and lesbians.

In other news, well I have none. It's fucking cold and I don't plan to leave the house all weekend unless I am tempted with whores and chocolate (not necessarily in that order.)

My pot roast (I am Teh Domesticated) is in the crock pot and my coffee is in hand.I just picked up some "Snickerdoodle" (cinnamon/hazelnut) flavored coffee at Stauf's. I really miss living so close to that place. I loved the smell of freshly roasting coffee as I walked through downtown Grandview.

I think I will write today.

Damn it is cold. It was -3(F) when I left for work with a -20(F) windchill. I have yet to get warm. Okay, I am ready for spring.

Rant Warning )

And Mrs. CB lost at poker while I won. That's the way it usually goes. The chili and cornbread were hits as was the yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting...which I am going to sample very soon.

Other news, my Buckeyes won again!! Still #3 in the AP poll.

Okay, time for cake.

Thank you LJ for losing power for almost 2 days...it gave me more time to sleep and get rid of this flu shit. Can I just say that feverdreams are like the most vivid hallucinations ever. I had one where Mrs. CB insisted that we depart Columbus and move back to my hometown...I woke up thinking I needed to find a new job and new excuses for not visiting my parents.

In other news... The #5 ranked OSU women beat the #4/7 ranked Rutgers basketball team today. These gals are heading for the top and I wish we could get time off for the Final Four. March Madness really does have two meanings for me...ah, Stephanie, my dear, I have not forgotten you. XXXOOO

When McCallie got pissed about a call, I was saying "Toss her out, toss her out! I'll take her home!" Yep...my ribs still hurt from where Mrs. CB elbowed me. Anyway, sorry about your luck #6 Spartans... the #9 Buckeyes hope that fall you make in the rankings next week doesn't hurt too much.

Oh, and basketball is soooo much better to watch after sharing a pitcher of margaritas ;)

I have to go back to work tomorrow after 11 days off. Due in part to the severe ice/snow storm right before Christmas, I accomplished very little. That's my excuse and I am sticking with it. I just went out to move my car-it hasn't even been started since Wed, Dec 22nd.

Today is the anniversary of my first day at Teh Hell Lab. 14 freaking years of my life. I can't really say that I hate my job, in fact, I love it. I love sitting at a microscope and looking for cytopathic effect. I love the puzzle of determining the virus/bacteria based on the clues the docs give us. I don't even mind the 4:00am wake up calls. What I don't like is how two members of our team are allowed to continue perpetuating a hostile work environment. I have been harassed on more thn one occasion because I am permanently on restricted duty. I would gladly give up being in pain every second of every day in order to be a full member of the department. But that isn't going to happen any time soon. Luckily, my boss (and her boss) have been very supportive. I hope things will change...but I have been there long enough to know better. So, the search for better employment begins anew.

My Buckeye gals won today. Sorry Purdue fans, but we were tired of your shit. Penn State- you had our C game...so just wait. I think OSU Women have a strong chance in the NCAA tourney. Mrs CB and I are already planning for March Madness.

I have been reading like a fiend this past week. DeMille, Crichton, DC comics ;). I am halfway through Michael Crichton's State of Fear. Eco-terrorism and other sciency stuff...reminds me a bit of Thor's Hammer by Ken Follett. And both were Christmas gifts.

I think I have my "Return of Alex" fic worked out in my head and I hope to start writing it tomorrow. For those that have been waiting for me to finish "Progression" and/or "Harlots", I will get to those after this. I was given a limited time frame when I got my early X-mas gift from DW and Co.

That's it...thanks for letting me ramble.

Went to a lovely holiday party last night. Wonderful food, beautiful home, friendly guests. Wound up talking horror flicks with a close friend. Anyone out there remember "Happy Birthday to Me" with Melissa Sue Anderson from "Little House on The Prairie" fame? I didn't think so. Memories...sweet and bloody. Good times.

OSU women's b-ball game this afternoon. During the media time-outs, the cheerleaders throw prizes into the crowd. While the coveted t-shirt still eludes me, I did manage to snag a swoosh ball from an elderly woman during one of the time-outs at yesterday's game. Just reached right over her back and grabbed it before she could wrap her shriveled little hands around it. Ah...height is good! Mrs. CB and I were bored during the first game (our gals played the second game in a tourney) so we decided to re-inact the hundreds of fouls called from our seats. Didn't last long. She ran into one of her students and we decided to behave. I'll not be consuming as much sugar today-the brownies and apple crisp are gone.

Gonna work on getting the Christmas decorations out tonight and tomorrow (I have tomorrow of as well!) Grabbed some stuff at Hobby Lobby to work on my Wizard of Oz display. Mrs. CB wants to get a small, real tree this year. I just want one large enough to put the train around..it scares the boys and keeps them out of the tree.Or so we try to tell ourselves.

Gonna work on getting the Christmas decorations out tonight and tomorrow (I have tomorrow of as well!) Grabbed some stuff at Hobby Lobby to work on my Wizard of Oz display. Mrs. CB wants to get a small, real tree this year. I just want one large enough to put the train around..it scares the boys and keeps them out of the tree.Or so we try to tell ourselves.

I cleaned off my desk in the office today by stuffing my research into the filing cabinet. The cats are thrilled that their "perch" is open again and there is room for them to play. I must say that I enjoy sitting here when one of them is sleeping on top of the hutch, dangling a little paw over the side. Then one of them will jump up on the keyboard right as I am posting something and fuck it all up.

OSU Women's b-ball started tonight. We have season tix and enjoy a sweet view of the young, firm hotties team. We are picked to finish first in the Big Ten and the girls showed definite promise tonight. I was also tackled by the big dude sitting next to us. They were tossing t-shirts to the crowd during a time out and one sailed my way. I reached up as high as I could and actually had my fingers on it when this guy (who was trying to do the same) fell into me. I then fell into Mrs CB who fell into the empty seat. We all stood up and laughed our asses off until I realized that the coveted t-shirt had eluded me again. I should have kicked the dude in his balls. Oh well, Sunday is another game and another chance.

Other news and stupid stuff. Gawd, I wish we had more public transportation. The ghetto Subaru was in the shop again only to find us making another appointment to have the heater/ac unit (that was replaced in August) checked. Mrs CB has nothing but hot air for three days, then no heat at all. A little hard to defrost those windows before she heads off to teach. Before anyone asks, no, she CANNOT drive my car. Not because I don't want her to, but because I have a stick shift and she doesn't know how to drive one. And she ain't learning on my car.

I got my camera and printer all set up and hope to take my meme pics tomorrow. I think The Burning Bush may be hibernating...haven't seen (or heard) her all week.
Not much else going on. Now that Teh Essay is done, I need to tackle that "do-it-or-else" list that has been growing every week. So if you don't hear from me, I'm in my basement cleaning my tool bench.

Today was an interesting day. Mrs. CB and I had been invited to a surprise 50th birthday party for one of the teachers at the school where Mrs. CB works. The surprise, however, was on us!

Holy Shit! )

Too bad the Buckeyes got their asses handed to them...again.
