How Tall IS He?

Last night was a fun night for me and Lindi. Lindi had VIP tickets to the Jazz game against the Houston Rockets, 6th row from the floor. We sat right behind the Hornet's team bench and I was able to see Yao Ming in person. He looked remarkably like 2 people standing on top of each other and it was rather odd.

We arrived at the Delta center at about 5, then went downstairs to the VIP room for complimentary dinner of salads, mini quiche, turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy, vegetables and carrot cake and tarts for dessert. We took our drinks up to our seats and watched the game until halftime, then went back down to the VIP room for complimentary nachos, popcorn and soda. We were treated like royalty, being able to walk around behind the scenes, be with the press, and see all it takes to televise an NBA game. There's a lot more to it than I ever would have thought.

It was a low scoring game (99-85), and with the loss of Kiralinko to a broken wrist, the Jazz really didn't have a chance, and Snyder's loud mouth taunting of the Rocket's didn't help much. He will learn sooner or later that there is a right way and a wrong way to get at the opposing team, taunting isn't one of them. They simply came back fired up, Snyder was removed, and the Rockets smashed the Jazz.

All in all, it was a great night out for the both of us. We enjoyed the game, and left early, walking in the rain, splashing in puddles, and going to bed early. It's the first time in a long time we have really enjoyed each other's company, like when we first started dating. We talked over dinner, held hands in the car, and were the romantic couple I knew us to be. Romance doesn't die when you are married, it just takes a brief hiatus!

In other news, it's time for our 15 year class reunion, and I've been asked to sit on the committee, with a bunch of people who were too good to talk to me in school. It will be odd to see them again, but I am determined to make it a positive experience. They have asked for help with a memorial table to those classmates we have lost, and I take this assignment seriously, since one of them was a friend of mine. I consider it an honor to recognize him and his accomplishments in his brief life. I am hoping to put out a book of remembrance for his classmates to write a brief message to his wife and his two children.

At work and doing well. Love out to Shane, thank you for your help! Thinking of you. And RIP to Lorene's and Dylan's furnace. May it rest in peace. (laugh)
