@adorable-eggplant Yes! Duke (3 seed) was beaten by Mercer (14 seed).

Rookie--well, as soon as one team in the bracket loses you won't have a perfect Warren Buffed billion dollar bracket, but all is definitely not lost! Nobody ever has a perfect bracket so if you get a few wrong early on and your later picks are right, that's an excellent bracket.

I'm totally obsessed with the NCAA and my bracket right now (for basically no reason, I know nothing/care nothing about basketball). I WILL CRUSH YOU ALL IN THE HAIRPIN LEAGUE.

On Here's the First Trailer for The Giver

@meetapossum Totally! Or at least kinda crappy/low fi colors that get really vibrant later if they didn't want to go full Wizard of Oz on it.

On Finally, Some Endives for a Diva Like Me

I can't tell what I'm most confused about in the dog one--that there is such a thing as dog cologne? That people even care about gender-appropriate scents for their pets, who a)would probably prefer their own scents and b) often have no balls so who even cares?

@katiemcgillicuddy Oh man, the fact that I only barely care about basketball was the only thing keeping me from tearing my hair out. Maryland whyyyyyyy

On What My Mom Wishes I Was Blogging About

@Julie the T Oh my god my mom is also a longtime alto, but she usually says when the next social gathering is (this is about 90% brunches unless it's something with the whole choir), whose house it is at, and what neighborhood that is in (you know that one across the street from the lake?).

On Reasons Why Everyone is Engaged But Me: A Sampling

@splendorofmorgan I love that kind of thing!! I had a conversation once that went like this:

Table orders a pitcher of beer; waiter comes back and says "hey guys, it's going just a minute, we're switching the keg"
After he leaves, a friend says "why doesn't he just get it out of the tap?"
"Well the keg is gone"
"Yeah but he can just get it from the tap though"
"................................where do you think the beer in the tap comes from?"

Turned out she had no idea that there were kegs under taps and had never thought about where the beer came from. Pipes like water or enormous tanks like a gas station??
