Underdog Done

I had a pretty quiet weekend esp. since I still don't have a computer/internet at home right now.

Watched some of the basketball games this weekend both alone and with my roommate. Really hoped Davidson would pull out the upset win. I mean when has rooting for an underdog been more fun?

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Went to Central Park on Sunday to cheer on my friend who was running the 10k Scotland run. Yep she's badass. I stood with my hoodie on, coffee in hand, and ra ra's ready to be launched.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

My Tuesday night is pretty packed but I'm hoping to ease of out work a little early to check out this reading before heading into Brooklyn so see my friend's friends' performance art gig.

So I have my eyes rolled to the high heavens (or void thereof) filling out a spread sheet for work that I lapsed on last week. Since we have two flight attendant training classes + a pilot training class I've got quite a few names to plug in. Insert y-a-w-n here.

So to keep myself from going crazy I play a little game like looking for the best name. Here's the winner: Sztawyo. That's pretty good last name, don't you think? He has a generic first name so no dbl bonus for him!

Another good name: Jagwendolyn (1st name) but she goes by Naresse so not sure if I should count it. What do you think? She's southern and knows I don't understand half of what she's saying (intentionally slurring) & neither one of us even bother to fake it. We nod. We smile. We give up. We go our own ways.
