Pro basketball has never held my interest. The NBA playoffs are in full swing, and my only question is…
“Any former UK players still in the mix?”
When pro ball and UK intersect, I’m in…if only briefly. That’s why I’m stoked about tonight’s NBA draft lottery, which takes place at 8pm right here in New York City.
With seven UK Wildcats in the lottery–and freshman forward Karl-Anthony Towns the projected #1 overall pick–I can’t wait to watch the action on ESPN.
As soon as my Wildcats find a home, I will wish them well, and then probably not think about pro ball again (until they start making headway and headlines for their respective teams).
That shouldn’t take long.

I don’t eat much fast food, and it’s not because I’m a health nut.
Far from it.
It’s just my favorite fast food restaurant, Taco Bell, isn’t in my neighborhood…thank goodness.
Why is the Bell my fav?
Well, I’ve never liked hamburgers, so that eliminates most other chains. Mexican food I love.
And after seeing this sign, I appreciate the Bell even more. Chalupas and a sense of humor?
Where do I sign up?

I love you both.
How many matinees have I enjoyed with popcorn in one hand, Sweetarts in the other, and a large diet soda in the seat’s cup holder?
But, alas, that’s only memory now.
For some reason, you two have parted ways, and my favorite movie candy is no longer available at the AMC concession counter.
I have expressed my disappointment at the theatre. I have requested Sweetarts’ return in online surveys. But today —
I’m takin’ it to the tweets.
Resolve your differences. Bring sweet and salty together again. The weekend is here…
And the Egg wants to see a movie.

Trash day is tomorrow here in NYC — heck , we have it three days a week — so the garbage bags were lining the streets during my evening walk with Rory.
In my neighborhood most of the bags are Mint-X brand, advertised to be rodent-repellent…which got me thinking —
What do mice have against mint?
Is it poisonous to them? Does it make them sick? Will it irritate their creepy rodent skin?
Nope. They simply don’t like the smell.
Well, la te da. Sorry to offend the disease-carrying little critters.

I depend on my cellphone.
Most people do these days.
It’s never more apparent than when you misplace it or break it for even a single day.
It’s like losing a limb.
And I am ever so grateful to have my cellphone in hand when I’m walking down the sidewalk and see a couple of petition people lying in wait.
I’m sure the two young ladies had something important to discuss with me — they always do, right? — but I just wanted to be on my way. And my cellphone allowed me to do just that.
As soon as the petition people were in view, I put the cellphone to my ear and begin having a fascinating conversation.
With no one.
The petition people don’t bother folks on the phone.
Give it a try yourself sometime.
