Super Bowl, what?

So instead of coming home and going straight to bed like a sensible person, I stayed up until about 0300 playing Civicrack and listening to the Root of All Evil (with 100% natural Earl tonight instead of stand-ins, for a change) after ripping the last two James McMurtry CDs onto Cowzilla's hard drive.

That meant that I slept in until 1 PM today and I am only now getting around to doing anything more constructive than eating lunch...and I really need to get constructive, since the sink is full of dirty dishes, there are a couple of bags of garbage that need to be chucked into the dumpster, and I need to do laundry. After that I'll be pretty well set for the rest of the week, which is a good thing since I have a whole $10 cash left to me until Friday, which should be when the student loan leftovers arrive along with the paycheck. Good thing, too, because I got BILLS.

I don't really have a dog in the Super Bowl fight, but out of solidarity with onsenmark I think I'll plug in the TV, see if I can get the game, and pull for the Steelers. (Seahawks? Please.) Gonna leave the sound off, though. Especially for the halftime show. The Rolling Stones? WTF? I mean...this is Motown, fools. If you were going to rock, you could at least have gotten the Nuge and Kid Rock, right?

EDIT So much for that - TV can't pull in any kind of a signal, so I'm going to listen to it on the AM Radio. Oh well.

    No weight today, obviously, but my BG readings at breakfast and lunch were both under 140, so I have that going for me. Got up very early (0630) and…
