Can anyone do work right now?

I've got a couple deadlines looming over my head but I am incapable of concentrating right now. Between SAMgO getting me irrationally hungry for a DiBella's sub that is 2,300 miles away and Brian's preview laying out all of the (totally doable) things we need to pull off the victory tonight, I can't think of anything other than tip-off.

Made that decision several days ago a day before the deadline for such a decision. My bracket, although so blown up in so many places, has Michigan playing (and beating) Villanova tonight, so I figured if I was going to show faith in my own picks I better back it up by not only taking today off but also scheduling NOTHING until 11am Tuesday.

I can, easily! First thing this morning, I checked my Michigan account. Then I sent a few Wagner's to clients. After drinking a couple cups of MAAR, I Duncaned a few documents, then had a teleSimpson call. Right now, I am Beileining in my Matthews with another cup of Teske. All good!

Haha!!!  Been sitting at my desk all day, and don't think I've done one single thing that could be considered 'work productive'...  But thanks for asking!

Yes n a conference call right now, no idea what this is about, but people are talking. Just thinking about the growler I have waiting at home, the game winning three that Duncan will hit. Go Blue!

No. It's worse now. I'd anticipated opening day for the Yankees at the Stadium to provide the distraction I needed to get grading done and keep my mind off the game. But the Yankee game is snowed out. What the fuck? I'm in Vermont and it's sunny and in the 40s here. Now...nothing to do but stare at student essays. Or try.

I am having the best day at work.  I am surrounded by MSU alums.  Between us being in the NC game and the latest garbage spewing from EL, there is a beautiful, calming, triumphant SILENCE that is enveloping me.

And, since I don't have any court hearings today, I can dress casual.  So, of course, I am wearing a tasteful Blue sweater with a gorgeous maize block M on the chest, over a maize polo and Harbaugh khakis.  I don't need to say a word.  I know I am aggravating the shit out of all these Spartans just sitting here!

Ah, life is wonderful.  GO BLUE!!

I'm just screwing around and trying to make it through the day.  It wouldn't be fair to bill clients as I go from one blog to another.

No work today! I read half a book, listened to a couple of podcasts, exercised, and meditated.

Going to watch Black Panther in 30 minutes with 4/5 of the fam.

Then prep a little bit for work tomorrow, eat dinner, drink bourbon and celebrate an amazing Michigan basketball season.

I've got two more meetings today that I should really be focusing on, but it's a lost cause at this point.

I'm stuck between just giving up for the day and being productive enough to pass the time.

I'm doing fine. I'm pleasantly surprised that the guys got past the round of 16. They're widely expected to lose tonight and that's my expectation. No pressure at all ... I hope they pull the upset.
