I can feel the excitement in the air. The terrorist gophers have already tried to steal our tv so they can watch the tournament in their underground lair, but Rambo foiled their wily plot (it's a long story, won't get into it here). But rest assured, Rambo and I have kept up the anti-gopher terrorist training.
Anyways, I've never watched the NCAA tournament before, never really had the time. But this year will be different, I'll at least follow the tournament, and if I'm feeling particularly tired and unable to do much of anything, I'll probably watch lots of games. There isn't a specific team I'm cheering for, the team I would cheer for isn't in the tournament, but I guess I'll cheer for Big Ten teams. Wait a sec, someone just reminded me... I'm cheering for Georgetown!
On another note, I just finished "Alice in Wonderland." I really loved it, so creative and interesting. I've been rereading the poem 'Jabberwocky,' which is at the beginning of "Through the Looking Glass." I think it's unbelievably cool and really fun to read out loud. I particularly love this verse...
'Beware the Jabberwock, my son!I'm looking forward to reading more of Carroll's works, Taarzaan recommended "Sylvie and Bruno," and I'd also like to check out the "Hunting of the Snark."
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!'
I'm also reading another book of short stories by HP Lovecraft. He's wildly imaginative, although quite dark, but, to my initial surprise, the darkness of his work really entranced me. Before Lovecraft, I never really read dark frightening stuff.
His writing style is interesting, although it's overdone at times... and I think there are different sorts of flaws in the writing, pace, or plots of certain stories. It's too bad, because instead of 1 in 8 stories being unbelievably great, if certain things had been changed, it'd be closer to 1 in 2 or something like that. Exactly the same thing with painting, not every work by an artist is a masterpiece, each artist has different rates of success. At least that's what I think... But even Lovecraft's lesser stories are awesome, so it's not a big deal. And his best stuff is truly mesmerizing and powerful.
