go west, young man.

going to texas tomorrow to hang out with the brownbear for a few days. gonna check out his place of employment outside houston, then head to austin to crash with a friend of his. made plans to do so even before we realized it was the weekend of sxsw. not gonna buy the "badge", which'll cost you an absurd $600 (nor the lesser wristband, which runs $115). but we should be able to slide into a few free shows, including this one, where my biggest dilemna will be which of the pipettes to pathetically try to hit on (just kidding, SM).

actually my time and attention will probably be more occupied this week by the arrival of march madness. awesome. the bowman and jturner hosted their yearly calcutta last night. MB was in the house as a first-time attendee. i nabbed a couple 15-16 seeds angling for the "biggest blowout" payout; then picked a couple mid-level seeds with a shot at a sweet 16 payout (gonzaga, stanford... and the hated dukies). didn't have the cojones to pick up any of the high-end squads. or perhaps it's just that i'm not a gambling degenerate like the bowman. anyhow, really looking forward to it; the first weekend of the tournament is always one of the best times of year. good luck in your pools, kiddos.

it would be a pleasure and an honor, bref...but my loyalties are here.

if any of you actually took note of my meager calcutta teams, you may have noticed that i took an absolute bath. just threw like $190 down a well. but ce la vie, i made money the last couple years.
