v2, d320: Tidbits (waiting for a new modem) (edit: hey, they all start with 'S'!)

* Should have a new modem by the end of the week.  Possibly Monday, though, since this is Easter weekend.

* Sorry, not writing about Barbara Bush today.  Got called in to today's Big Hairy Important Meeting at the last minute, and that just sorta has a tendency to suck a lot of motivation/creativity out of you.  Though the free lunch was appreciated.

* Speaking of food, I have yet to figure out what I'm going to be eating while my family is in Oklahoma this weekend.

* So glad I stayed up to watch the entirety of last night's LA/San Jose game.  The Kings had a 4-0 lead just a minute and a half into the second period.  The Sharks pulled their Cup-winning (last year with Chicago) goalie and came all the way back to win 6-5 in overtime.  It was cra-zay.  Also the first time in 26 years a team has come back from down four or more to win in the playoffs and just the fourth time ever (I believe; may have been fifth).

* Still not quite as impressive as the Miracle on Manchester.

* SWEEP!  Aeros 2, Rivermen 1.  Mike Yeo's boys do a fantastic job of putting away a gritty, scrappy Peoria team quickly.  Now to sit back and rest while the rest of the league plays catch-up.

* Somebody please go to at least one Western Division Final game with me.  Please. Please?

* Spaghetti-O's.  That's what I'm eating while the family is gone.  Spaghetti-O's.

* See ya later, alligator.
