I'm pretty certain that you will not see anything cuter than this today.

While gushing about my trip to Chicago and Jason's hospitality, I had this exchange with a certain sexy physicist...
me: sometimes i worry that i'm too lucky
DocFish: Actually... I think you're not.
me: i suppose not
DocFish: at least you're not lucky about what you think you're lucky about.
DocFish: what you are lucky about
DocFish: and a lot of people aren't lucky in this way
DocFish: is that you recognize all the marvelous people in your life
DocFish: and don't take them for granted.
Have I ever mentioned how fucking lucky I am?

New, New, New
I haven't even been back from Chicago 12 hours and I already want to plan a return trip. This time without 14 hour workdays.

Not Sweet, Not Sixteen
So my Terps didn't do too well the other day. Against Butler. There were almost more kids in my high school than at Butler. How does such a thing happen? Oh wait, it was Maryland basketball. We can lose to the local CYO if the game counts. So sad.
Here's to UNC and bruised and battered Tyler Hansbrough representing for the ACC.
Perhaps I can do better in MARCH GAYNESS. Likely not.
Speaking of sports, I really have to say I despise the use of the modifier "Lady" when talking about women's teams. I was watching the local sports round-up of the Women's NCAA tourney and cringed each time I heard "Lady Colonials" or "Lady Terps." Something about it seems so diminutive and suggestive that these athletes aren't "real" whateveryourteamnameis but "Lady" whateveryourteamnameis. Those "Ladies" should get together and kick sportscaster ass.

Icing on the Cake
Last night I celebrated the new job with a few drinks with a slew of good friends at Science Club where The Vodka Manx played some great tunes (Brazilian Girls live, mmm). I had a great time. I'm really excited about the future and am glad some friends could share in my happiness.
Afterwards a group of us went to get a bite. As we enter Dakota Fanning Mary's Brokeback Titanburger, what should be on all the screens but the final moment of the VCU-Duke game. Poor Duke. But Dumbek said he'd never seen me so giggly.
I'm suddenly reminded of one of my favorite screencaps of all time...

I got the call. I got the job. I got a spring in my step.
Now I have to go study. Aparently I have to take a drug test. They might have made new ones since I was in college. I hope I pass!

Here's to Good Friends, Tonight Is Kinda Special
"Now I notice the street lamp's humAlthough I was otherwise occupied (*cough* job interview *cough*) when tickets sold out faster than Of Montreal at an Outback Steakhouse, I was fortunate to have a good friend at the ready when The Dismemberment Plan reunion show tickets went on sale for all of five minutes.
Have I ever mentioned that I'm a lucky guy?
