My bracket is surprisingly intact through the first two rounds of the tournament. 23-9 in the first round, 11-5 in the second, only one Elite Eight team out (Pittsburgh), and all my Final Four picks (UNC, UCLA, Texas, Wisconsin) still alive.
About the only tfo-worthy thing to happen to me in the last four days was getting pulled over for speeding in Durham on Saturday night. I've now been pulled over three times since I joined the Navy. I have received zero tickets since joining the Navy. I know not whether this is simply coincidence; suffice to say I'll drive a bit more carefully after next May 19. Oh, and I had Taco Bell last night, for the first time in six and a half months. I had abstained since last September, when I found sour cream in my soft tacos one day. I stopped off there for a snack last night; I figured if there was still sour cream, I'd only be out two bucks. There wasn't, I devoured the tacos, and there was much rejoicing.
I've got an interesting story about one of my co-workers. On the one hand, it makes all of us at work laugh; on the other, it does shake my faith in the human race a little bit. If I had been in the same situation, I certainly would not have even conceived of doing what this guy did. I'll post it here tomorrow.
