Finally got 90% of the hurricane shutters down. Was justifying leaving them up because it looked like we might get more there for a bit, but then I just procrastinated. Just have one window left that I'll need a ladder to get. Think the job qualified as a decent workout.

The math tutoring center was decently involved this week. I got in a bit of trouble for not getting my availability in again in a timely manner. The issue is that that the owner used to have us get them in by Saturday. The new center director wants them in by Tuesday in order to put out the next week's schedule on Thursday (which then has to be intialed by Friday). Anyway, the first time around I got mine updated on a Thursday...did two weeks...then forgot about it until another Thursday. The director said she'd told me multiple times in e-mail. The problem is that 95% of e-mails that I get are garbage, and I generally only check it once per week or when I'm specifically expecting something. That's been the case for years...so I guess I have to break that habit.

Looking forward to some pokering the next few days.

Who are you tailgating and attending the chiefs game with? Inquiring minds, and all


Isn't Nebraska playing someone this weekend? Is saw it advertised during the Yanks game the other night

I have zero plans this weekend. Only drank once in the last three weeks or so. We'll see about this weekend.

i have one friend left, and he wants me to meet his new girlfriend. i think they want to set me up with a friend of hers but the new girlfriend wants to meet me first. i would assume that plan will be off after she meets me.

nebraska plays saturday night against ohio state. we will be bent over for three hours and shown the 50 states. it will get ugly.

sunday will be tailgating and complaining about doing things and people.

Thatís why people have separate work emails that they only give out for work things and they check it every day. 9 2 5 what a way to make a living.

Had the live auction tonight. Got antsy and confused Nurkic and Jokic, and spent $42 on the ~$10 Nurkic. Still managed to kill the rest of the draft, but wasting $30 for no reason was a bite in the dick.

Rest of the team in a 12 team league:
Chris Paul, Jimmy Butler, Kemba, Millsap, Nurkic
Gallinari, Lou Williams, Dirk, Oladipo, Hernangomez, Teodosic as my rookie, Tony Parker as my injury pick.
I can't hate it, but there was so much value later on that I really could have really added a few other guys.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.

Oh the Queens show Friday was great. VIP definitely worth it, just wish I could have gotten as drunk as their lead singer.

I know my team if nothing else. We canít handle that kind of attack, and we suck. Easy recipe for a boat racing.

Didn't watch a minute of it. I was happy with the result, though. We're a step closer to Frost.

I mean, you're preaching to the choir about how terrible Lincoln, and I know you're taking a shot at the state, but the biggest reason is Nebraska's in a power conference and CF is in the AAC. Beyond getting paid 5-10 times more at Nebraska, he'd get a chance to play for national titles, if he succeeds here. The reason I want Frost so badly is he's from Nebraska ( as in, was born and grew up here) and won a national title here in 97, so he both knows the heights Nebraska can get to, and might just appreciate being the man here. I would be afraid of other coaches using Nebraska as a stepping stone to the SEC or the NFL, but I think there's a real chance that being a coaching legend at Nebraska would appeal to Frost in particular. They have to hire him, and they have to do it now.

I'm not sure I've ever felt a bigger juxtaposition in sports feelings than hoping for a possible title run for the last two months, and Hayward almost severing his foot 5 minutes into the season.

You didnít actually think the Celtics could win a title, did you? At best, and itís a stretch, they got out of the east

I was totally trolling the state. Of course he would rather coach at Nebraska and a big 5 conference for 3-4 times the money. Iím sure heís making over a million at UCF and no chance Nebraska gives him $5 million to start.

Now, the problem with places like Nebraska, Michigan, Penn Stare, etc, they are gonna forever live in the past and never get back what they had. Problem is, their fans will never lower the expectations.

If Isiaahahiaih comes back healthy, maybe the Cavs are clearly better. If Gordon/Kyrie/Horford mesh well, Jaylen plays as good as he looked tonight, and Tatum isn't a stiff, then those teams could be pretty close. And sure, Golden State is the best. But all it takes is one unexpected ankle disappearance from KD or Steph or Dray, and then they aren't unstoppable. But I guess those kinds of injuries don't happen?
