- I've been doing pretty good so far on the diet. I'm down 25 lbs., 4 belt loops (well, I'm down to about a 36 on my pants) and am curious about how long I want to keep going. I figure that another month isn't a bad thing and that way... I can really enjoy the food at the reception.
- The day after the Super Bowl, I wound up meeting Patriots wide receiver Dante Stallworth. Poor guy. A few of the co-workers were shouting 19-0 which had to hurt. I talked with him for a bit and told him two things. I told him that he's helped me win several match-ups over the last few years in fantasy football. I also mentioned to him that with the coach he has, they'll be going back to the big game shortly. I feel even worse knowing that he's expected to be released from the team on Monday (he's due $8 million in bonuses if he stays.)
- A boss of mine is in the hospital's ICU. Been stopping in and checking on him. Nice guy but his health isn't that great (even before this stint in the hospital.) I told him that this was a lousy way of trying to get out of going to the wedding. He grinned and weakly said, "I'll be there."
I've gotta get to work, running late. Hope you had a great President's Day.
