7 unrelated things

1. I went to the FSU/Wake Forrest basketball game last night. During the time outs, they always have little games and activities and whatnot to entertain the fans...like no one can just fend for themselves for the 30 seconds or 3 minutes or whatever. A feature of one of the time outs is the “kiss cam” where they point a camera at random couples in the stands and they appear on the big jumbotron scoreboard screen. When you see yourselves up there, you are then supposed to kiss. I hate the kiss cam. Aside from it just being lame and weird, it’s also creepy. They just point it at people they think are couples, but they don’t really know. I mean, what if the 2 people they select are siblings? Or father and daughter? Or 2 people having an affair? Or some person who just happened to be sitting next to you at a basketball game? Kiss cam sucks. (Although, this is kind of entertaining...)

What is up with the weather today? When I got up it was in the 30’s, yet the high is supposed to be 75 today. North Florida weather is so screwy. As usual, layers are the answer.

3. Where is a cop when you need one? Several cars blew past me this morning going at least 50 MPH in a 30 MPH zone. Of course, 2 seconds later we were all stopped at the same traffic light, so it’s not like their reckless speeding (in a residential area, by the way) got them where they were going any faster.

4. When did they stop making sweaters with full length sleeves? I need a plain black v-neck sweater, which seems like it should be an easy enough item to find. But, every single sweater I find…3/4 length sleeves. Is this just a Florida thing or what? I stand by my philosophy “cold enough for a sweater, cold enough for sleeves”.

5. Did you hear what Jane Fonda said on the Today show? Whatever...it’s the name of the monologue people. It’s just a word…(also, check this out. In FL, of course...)

6. This whole superdelegate thing seems a bit shady…very “smoke filled room”.

7. Hey, it’s a leap year! Extra February for everyone!

Re: point 4... Have you tried Gap, Eddie Bauer or Lands End online? I know the pain of not finding the wardrobe essential and although you won't get instant gratification, you should have the item within a day or so. I'm all about online shopping; it's so civilised.
