Super Bowl?

Y'know, I've never been much of a sports fan. I used to enjoy watching beach volleyball, and I enjoy hockey, but I don't keep up with specific teams and whatnot. However, I've always cheered for the Saints, partly because I love the city of New Orleans and partly because they have always been the underdogs of the NFL.

Today, all those years of pulling for them, even when it was silly, paid off. Seeing them win their first ever Super Bowl (and them doing it with style) was a lot of fun. I've been to many Super Bowl parties, but we rarely paid attention to the game; we usually gamed or just goofed off and watched the commercials and the halftime show. Somehow, though, sitting around at Don's tonight, we all got into the game form the very beginning. To hear us all cheering them on, you'd think we were life-long fans. 'Twas quite a game, exciting and fun.

A rousing game of Robo-Rally afterward just completed the evening. Sorry to see moonchylde and worshipthesnake leave so soon, but it was a bit of a drive back to their place. Meanwhile, krazyfelioness, Margaret, and bloodred37 watched as matrixleap, herince_emyn, bellybalt, skeets, and myself did the Robot Thang, laughing the whole way in our various frustrations (those of you who know the game can sympathize, I'm sure). A good end to the night.

State Of The Brain

Man, this has been another packed weekend. I dunno what it is, but I hope this calms down soon. Not that I mind the interaction; it's been great getting out to see people more, lately. I miss that, a lot. Just been draining, but I'm not complaining, it's better than the alternative.

There's a couple people I'm a bit worried about. In some cases, I'm worried about what they are doing. In others, I'm curious about what's being done to them. Of course, in neither case do I have much influence, but that doesn't stop my curiosity. Nice side effect to this is that dealing with THAT means I can avoid dealing with my OWN issues. No, not healthy, I fully admit this, but I know where I stand on THOSE, and it's not something I'm in a position to handle any further than I am. Oh, and there's a couple people I'm seriously annoyed with, but until I decide what I'm doing about it, it doesn't bear speaking about.

Things happening at the moment aren't all bad, of course. I'm reconnecting with older friends, getting closer with friends I know but don't know well, and making some new friends. I'm enjoying getting some things back underway, and getting others started. I'm looking forward to the 'stage reading' of Two Gentlemen of Lebowski that we're going to put on, that should be a lot of fun. Just gotta get a couple other things to either step up and get with the program, or get out of my way.
