Dinner for Four?

I'm hot 'cause I'm fly
You ain't cause you not
This is why,
This is why,
This is why I'm hot!

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Okay, riddle me this...what infamous law girl had such a stellar bracket that she picked a perfect final four?

I'll give you a hint....

Her name is Reese the Law Girl.


Hehehehehe, I have to brag. This is the best I've ever done in the tourney, so I'm quite proud of myself. And, after the week I had, I deserve it.

You see, a little three-year old decided to pass along a wonderful stomach virus to me last Sunday called "gastrointinitis." It's a wonderful disease that renders you completely helpless.

Reese: "Ohhh, yeah! Can't wait for this week's episode of Battlestar Galac..."




[Reese falls to the ground shaking violently with the fever shivers]

As I lay on my beautiful hardwood floors, I actually began to visualize my funeral. Everyone was there. My mom, my dad, CC, "Lisa," Boy with Flowers, Leslye, Eliza, Juicy, Alex the Law Boy, Dez, Caro, Karla, J, Kom, Derek, and you. You were there!

And just so you know, you all were very torn up about my passing. Really, I don't know how you would go on without me.

By Wednesday I thought I had recuperated. But, later I found out the virus I had actually came in two parts. The first part was the fever, headaches, and muscle aches. The second part was all of the lovely things that deal with your stomach.

Needless to say, I was very disappointed with my relapse. Mainly because two months prior I had purchased tickets to see Wicked. And, of course, my time to see Wicked was Thursday, the day after my relapse. Anyways, even though I was in a horrible state health wise, I was forced to skip Wicked and stay at home eating Jello and drinking Gatorade.




You all know that I wouldn't skip seeing a musical I paid $84.00 for! Of course I went to see Wicked! And I spread gastrointitis to the entire third tier. I guess everyone will just have to deal with it!

Anyways, here are the current standings for the SD Bracket Challenge. Note how I'm still in first place. Note that.

I'm in first place in the SD Bracket Challenge!!!

YATTAA!!!!!!! (This is a Heroes reference; you'll get it if you watch the show).

I'm celebrating my first place finish after the first day of the tournament because I know I will never, ever, ever be in first place again!


Here are the standings after day 1...


1. This is Why I'm Hot(This is me- and now you know why I'm hot) 17pts.

2. The Legendary Sannin(This is my sister- she has zero basketball knowledge) 15pts.

3. TEAM BIG BOY(This is "Lisa's" co-worker- he picked all the #1's for the final four...I know, he's crazy) 14pts.

4. AkronGotScrewed(This is Derek. He's a mid-major head. He refuses to bow down to the ACC (not Duke) like I told him too) 14pts.

5. AntiPimp w/o a Golf(This is fellow law-boy Alex. He's a Duke fan. Yes, you may celebrate his misery) 14pts.

6. Team McC (This is another co-worker of "Lisa's." And another tragedy of believing in Duke) 13pts.

7. The Jones Factor(This is another friend of "Lisa's." She has a lot of basketball knowledge- which means she's going to lose the bracket challenge) 13pts.

8. Haven'tWatchedAGameYet (This is my friend ToyaDe. She hasn't watched any basketball this season. And it shows- booo-yah!) 13pts.

9. Team Playboy (This is the boy who sent me flowers. He thinks he's hot. He doesn't know he's only a little hot ;)) 12pts.

10. The Winner (This is "Lisa." And this is what happens to you when you declare yourself the winner) 12pts.

11. Team Lewis (I believe this is "Lisa's" cousin. I'm not sure, but if it is then don't let the bad first showing fool you. He'll probably end up in the top 3) 11pts.

12. Team Desiree (Awww, poor Dez! But, she's gonna beat all of us in the end when her son becomes the #1 pick in the NBA draft 20 years from now) 8pts.

13. The Flossy Flossy (This is "Lisa's" sister. She forgot to go back and make her picks, therefore guaranteeing that the rest of us won't be in last place. Thanx! ;)) 0pts.

I'll post new standings after Round 2. Root for me!! ;)

SD Bracket Challenge- Join NOW!!!!

SD Bracket Challenge, SD Bracket Challenge, SD Bracket Challenge, SD Bracket Challenge!!!


For those who don’t know- like you live outside of the U.S. or you live in the U.S., but you have never watched TV or talked to an American in your life, March Madness is the annual, month long event where we all find out which college basketball team is the best college basketball team in the land. It’s a huge! Wait…HUGE, event.

65 teams compete against each other in 33 games. If a team loses just once, they are tossed out of the tournament (one and done, as it’s called).

So, we start with 65 teams. After the first round, we have 32 teams. After the second round, we have 16 teams (called the Sweet 16). Then, we have 8 teams (called the Elite 8). Next we have 4 teams (called the Final Four). And, finally, we have the last 2 teams (which have been referred to as the Dynamic Duo (even if it does infringe on Batman’s ™)).

The teams are all organized in a bracket. Thus, with the Bracket Challenge, you try to guess which teams will win their respective games.

So, Something Different is sponsoring a Bracket Challenge again this year. If you’d like to play, follow the directions below (please play!! It’s so much more fun the more people you have). :)


1) Go here and register your team.

2) After you've registered, click on "Find League" under the League Info tab at the top of the page.

3) The league name for this blog is SD Bracket Challenge. To join, you have to have SD Bracket Challenge’s password. The password is lawgirl.

Now, I know some of you are probably saying, “I can’t play. I don’t know anything about basketball. I don’t even know what basketball is.” But, that’s okay. And, I’ll tell you why…

Tomorrow (if you read my blog, then you know what the next post is).

For now, go register. And, later this week, read How to Fill Out Your Bracket and then pick your teams!


March Madness is here!!

P.S.: If you’d like to pass this on to other people, you may. The more the merrier.

P.P.S.: If you win, you'll get my undying respect.

Good Luck!!!
