The last few days have been a bit hectic here at SerandEz... Purim was our calm day! I was helping a friend draft his arguments for law school for a while this week (see, you finally got mentioned), along with helping another guy write the last paper he needs to graduate. This morning, I drove my friend to the airport at 5am - he's flying out to LA a day early to surprise and propose to the girl he's been dating!! :) Woohoo!! He's one of two good friends getting engaged today, and it works out quite well. He left me his car for the next 5-1/2 days, which means I can drive to the other one's engagement party - otherwise I'd have missed it. His own engagement party will be in LA, which means I couldn't go anyway; but at least Serach's sister will be dropping off something on our behalf since we're not there.
Then, of course, there's the (other) real madness: March Madness!! As of last count, there were 50 sheets in the pool I run, and anywhere from 20-50 more sheets coming in from Chofetz Chaim and Lander right before the games begin. 1st place could be getting $300 or more, the way things are looking... very nice. It would be especially nice if I would win, considering I don't pay for my first sheet. This is the first time I'm doing multiple brackets (3 each in my pool and my brother-in-law's), and it's primarily because Ohio State has a #2 seed. I have to pick them to win a bracket in each pool, because... well, because that's who I'm rooting for, and since they're a #2 seed, they actually have a decent shot. But... I have to do my regular bracket, too. So now I have 6 brackets, with 4 different winners (UConn twice, Ohio St. twice, Villanova, and Texas, unless I change one to Duke just to cover myself - but I hate Duke).
Will I win? Who cares! (Okay, I do, and Serach would be pretty happy.) It's entertaining to watch and follow every year - last year, I watched the first 3 rounds on my computer; this year, I have to see what I'll do.
Let the Madness begin!!
