I swear, sometimes the stupidest things can make you completely lose track of time.
For me, today, it was one of those old handheld Tetris games (literally Tetris, the actual game, you sickos). Katie and I found a bunch of them recently and discovered the batteries, after years of non-use, still work.
This morning, I woke up and got out of bed and started playing it instead of taking my shower and getting ready for work. I figured I could get in a couple dozen rows of a game and then pause it to continue later. That's kinda how Katie and I take to this Tetris game, one person starts, another continues, and so on and so forth to see how far we can get (our record is 985 rows and it took a couple weeks of on-again/off-again play).
Well, I sat there this morning and started playing a new game and got sucked in.
A little while later, Katie comes in and informs me that nearly a half hour had elapsed. I was more than 160 rows deep in the game and seriously needed to start getting ready for work.
I need to watch out for that damn game. I feel I could easily lose a whole day to it.
Two years ago, I took part in an NCAA March Madness bracket pool with some people I know. I did pretty decently.
Last year, I did horrifically.
I think I discovered the reason why... two years ago, Katie helped me with my brackets. Last year, she didn't because I was in a rush to get them done in time and she wasn't around to help.
Damn right she helped out again this year. She pretty much took it over. She has a strange insight when it comes to this sort of thing.
And all I can say is... GO UK!
