Oy. I am dead tired, and am so behind on my to do list that it's not even funny. But first things first:

Syracuse 81, Kansas 78

National champions, baby!

Not long after the game I got a call from one very happy friend in Boston -- and then about two minutes later another called my cell phone. Boston in stereo! They had both just gotten home from watching the game with 200 SU partisans at a local bar. When it started snowing, they figured that it was a good omen for good ol' snowy SU!

Aaron, who is already in Monaco, sent a distressed e-mailed this morning begging me to bring a tape of the game, since he couldn't find it on TV over there! I don't think this will work since I think a VHS NTSC tape may not play back in Europe, but I went ahead and recorded most of the game on my DV camcorder with the idea that I could then suck it into my laptop. So far this hasn't really worked, but maybe I'll take another stab. Or just stick the tape in my bag in hopes of running into someone else with a camcorder!

Back to my to-do list: still have to xerox my textbooks, finish the pro bono website, talk to the 12-year-old next door about feeding the cat, call my credit card company, get my hair cut, haggle with my dentist about insurance, go to several meetings at work, finish up packing, pick up hemmed pants, leave instructions for the temporary folks we hired to work on a project I'm running, etc, etc. Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. Then Wednesday morning it's off to the airport for two days of travel hell. Despite all this, I'm still totally jazzed about the whole trip!
