Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Surprising Interest
I've found myself interested in the NBA regular season this year as never before. Something about the number of fine teams in the West, all bunched together, along with the huge trades has me captivated. I'm so intrigued by Shaq's arrival in Phoenix that I went out of my way on Saturday to watch their game against the Celtics at a Louisville sports bar. I love Baron Davis, Stephen Jackson, and Monta Ellis of Golden State. I'm finding that my affection for the tragically underloved Spurs has been rekindled as well. And today's news of Yao Ming's season-ending injury has the gears in my head turning double time.

I'm strangely into the NBA this year too. Maybe it's Shaq and the Cavs' crazy trade....
Is it your birthday?

No, no. My birthday is May 6th. Right when the semester ends. What a way to celebrate!

Are you feeling any better? It sounded like you were really under the weather when I was in Louisville.

Laura G and Laura D both came to my talk, even though I wasn't able to attend theirs. That was nice. And we had a great chat over drinks, too.

Oh right, right. I remember that. That thing about the song celebrating your birthday threw me off.

I was really really sick, and now I'm almost better, though not quite. And I've got my parents here this weekend and Vegas next weekend.... super busy.

Lauras D and G are both great. Particularly Laura G, who has become a very close friend of mine. I hope you had a great time in Louisville. We should get together again soon. Perhaps some Pac 10 tourney....
