UK Basketball

I have never been a University of Kentucky Fan, except when I was little and didn't know any better. I watch them and cheer for the opposing team. I know that I'm from Kentucky and I should cheer for them but for some reason I just can't. Don't get me wrong I cheer for a Kentucky team: Louisville. North Carolina and Duke are some teams I also like which are team that Kentucky people despise. I realize that Kentucky was a great team back in the day and have a lot of championships under their belt.
When I was in Middle school, Graves County went to the Sweet 16 in basketball at Lexington. That also happened to be the same week that Kentucky played North Carolina. We went shopping at the mall to kill time and everything North Carolina was on sale. I begged my dad to get me a North Carolina Starter Jacket. (You remember the big puffy jackets with the teams logo on the back) He debated it for a long time and finally broke down. He said "If I buy this for you, you have to walk ten steps ahead of me at all times while we are on this trip!"
Maybe this is why I despise Kentucky! Local Paper and News report trouncing of Tennessee State, torches Appalachian State, and Crushing of Lamar.I realize that teams schedule these teams for a better record and to get better during the season but the media using words like trouncing, torching, and crushing just make me mad. Here is an example: I have a word for all of you Kentucky fans that might make you mad: Laettner

My life has been crazy the past couple of weeks. I have work about 75 hours this week. First I have my day job (Architect) which is kind of on the drag right now because we don't have much to do. Last week I finished the only project we have in the office. It was more or less a small house so it only took me about a week or so to do. The whole office decorated the Christmas tree for 3 1/2 hours on Thursday. I have my desk clean as a whistle, changed the air fresheners, and cleaned out the drawing file cabinet. I come to work and search for things to do. Friday my boss said that we will take off from Christmas Eve til January 5th. I was surprised but he said that we would get paid for those days, so I was happy. Now I will have to find something to do at home.
My best friend, Terra, parents own the German Roasted Nuts in the mall. They are greatest people and work very hard. I help them out at Christmas time and sell nuts. You should hear some of the jokes as people walk by! I love doing this because it is one way to see people I haven't seen in a while and I get to munch on some nuts every once in a while.
I also worked at Enegy Fitness this weekend. Saturday and Sunday are pretty much laid back there but just getting ready for the next week is a struggle when you don't have a lazy Sunday afternoon to kick back and watch some football. I usually get off around 7:30, so by the time I get home and eat it is usually time to go to bed.
I know that I have been working a lot. I'm the type person that can run on 5 hours of sleep and be fine all day. But the older I get I think that I'm needing more sleep. I wake up tired in the morning but my 8 or so I'm kicking it into high gear. Lauren and I can always use the extra but I miss spending time with her and Cosmo. Also working all the time I don't get to eat much. I've been trying to loose weight and I've lost right around 15 lbs.
