I was stuck in bad traffic tonight and I was listening to the radio when Don McLean's song, Vincent started playing. What a beautiful song! Anyway, here are the lyrics. Just think of that episode of Doctor Who and try not to cry.

Happy Independence Day! (US people!) Try this if you drink. It's a bit sweet, but good:
Stars and Stripes Martini Recipe (1 serving)

Muddled blueberries
1.5 oz. SKYY Citrus Vodka
¼ oz. Blue Curacao
¼ oz. Chambord raspberry liqueur
½ oz. simple syrup
1 oz. lemonade
Splash lemon-lime soda
2 juiced lemons

Muddle blueberries with the Blue Curacao in a martini glass. Place a lemon wheel slice over mixture. Pour vodka, simple syrup, a splash of lemon-lime soda, and lemon juice in a martini shaker. Shake and strain over the lemon in a martini glass. The mixture will layer. Drizzle Chambord down the side of the glass. It will layer in between the vodka and blueberry mixture creating a striped appearance; garnish will float to top.

Why is everything such an almighty pain in the ass?

I love Crowded House. I love the lyrics, the harmonies, the videos.

How sad for Scottie Reynolds that he didn't make it back to the final four this year. Wahh!

We're at LaGuardia waiting to board our flight. New York was fun. It's always good to see old friends. I hope the
snow is still on the ground in Dallas! More later!

and I mean from another planet, why would you come to earth?

I can't help it. I like Peyton Manning a lot, but I really like Mark Sanchez and underdogs in general. Let it be a Saints/Jets Super Bowl. (again, it's tough, but I'm supporting the Saints!)

If you ever get a chance to watch this movie, it's worth the time. Olivia de Haviland is fantastic--just wonderful.

Ouch, what a game. The old man just killed us.

PBS had a show on last night about Louisa May Alcott. It's totally worth watching and will no doubt be re-run this week.

I'm not happy. Something cold and white has come between me and my child. I'm very unhappy. Our flight was cancelled, even though it's not that bad in Philadelphia. Grrr! The poor kid is stuck right now in the dorm. Grrr! I was dreaming of a white CHRISTMAS, not white December 19!!

So now instead of watching the bloodbath that will occur tonight in New Orleans from a hotel in Maryland, we'll be here watching the game at home. (stupid Cowboys--thanks for another December collapse. Surprise me, will you?)

On the plus side, Villanova beat the Montana Grizzlies last night to win the NCAA div I championship!! The Wildcats took over in the second half and almost never looked back. I'm so happy and I love the fact that one of their big stars is going to be a bone marrow donor in early January to hopefully save the life of a one-and-a-half-year-old girl. There are a lot of college players around the country who have signed up to be donors thanks to the Villanova football coach, Andy Talley.

I hope all of you are safe and warm and that you haven't lost power.

ETA: The kid just measured seven inches of snow near his dorm.

It's done. He looked so peaceful and now he's with Gizmo. They can run and play and eat whatever they want and Rocky can see again.

Those who know and love Rocky, get ready to say good-bye. His diabetes is not well-regulated with insulin. He's becoming increasingly immobile. I just have a feeling that his time is coming to an end. I'm sad, but resolved.
