march madness and movie night

march madness starts thursday. well it kinda started tonight with a play-in game. thats when the winner gets into the ncaa basketball tournament. oakland beat alabama a&m 79-69. the real fun begins thursday. needless to say i'll be parked in front of the t.v. i wonder if katie follow the tournament.

i went to a movie with a couple of friends from work last night. the movie we saw was "the pacifier" with vin diesel. for a guy who does lots of action movies, he did pretty good in this comedy.well worth it. (good thing yesterday was payday). two of us were off at 3 and 4 while the third was off. we went to dinner then the theatre to watch the movie then went home. it was fun. i need to do that more often.
