It’s messy out here

Today is Friday 03/25/V3.1, the last Friday of March MMXI.

Woke up to Winter Weather Alert this morning, I’m okay with listing it as that. Spring arrived on Sunday 03/20/MMXI, so its fair to say that now.

I did a workout this morning on my Wii & it really urges me to do better with that leaderboard that they include on Wii Fit Plus.

My alma mata is playing hockey in St. Louis today, & I’ll be watching at Aksarben Cinema starting around 4:15 or so.  GO MAVS!!!! Will you be there? I’m excited!!!

The word of the day is bumptious which means Crudely, presumptuously, or loudly self-assertive.  This is a bad thing.

Enjoy your FNP & have a wonderful one!!!
