Last year, I spearheaded a group of guys at the office bidding on a charity auction to have a few higher-ups take us out to a sarcastically titled "sales-style lunch" to drink beer and watch BBall on the first Friday of the tourney.

Forgot about it until a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't have worked out better.

I'll be arriving at the bar just in time for our game to eat and drink on the execs' tab (and feel good about it because my contribution went to charity - and is long forgotten by my bank account!).

Can't wait... GO BLUE!

Then I get the kids out of school, stop by the FEDEX center to get the tickets waiting for me on the way to Bobcats arena to watch the Wolverines at 12:40.  My kids and I will be screaming our lungs out for them!  Win or lose, I love this team.  Go Blue!!!

I work with the campus police for a school that's on break. I will be getting paid to watch 8 hours of college basketball, Michigan included.

the only downside is that I can't drink on the job, but I can make up for that after work.

Normal crypto or advanced crypto? Normal crypto would be cool, but I'm taking advanced crypto. I'd love to be learning the ins and outs of how crypto works... instead I'm stuck learning how to prove that it works as long as some stuff that can't be proven true is true. The only reason I go is because I'll fail if I don't...

Yes, Duffy's. Was going to do Rockit b/c downtown (so friends who didn't take off could take long lunch) and is "official" per email from UM Alumni Club of Chicago, but they are only opening downstairs, which has two tv's. (Called them today).
