Merry Christmas from NoMad Blog!

The Eve of the Eve is over. Nana’s first birthday in heaven has passed. I just sat down and watched Love Actually start to finish. The Pogues are playing throughout the house, cookies are being baked in the oven, my Ugly Christmas Sweater (with matching turtleneck) is laid out for tomorrow’s festivities. It’s officially Christmas.

Quote of the Day

I get this feeling that the Sportscenter Rundown guy might actually be Tyler Neville:

When The Rundown was (technically) on the high school basketball team, messing around at the (very) end of the bench, waiting to get into the (well, any) game, Coach told us three things:
1. Stop messing around at the end of the bench. (In fact, what he actually told us was, “Stop making babies down there,” which didn’t really help his cause too much, honestly.)
2. Make your free throws.
3. Don’t save the ball from going out of bounds underneath your own basket.
But because Missouri is coached by Mike Anderson and not Bob Barker (not that one), maybe they weren’t told these things, because they erased an 18-point halftime lead by Georgetown only to miss three of four free throws in the last 19 seconds, then save the ball underneath their own basket, then watch Chris Wright to drain a three-pointer at the death that sent the game into overtime. Then, in overtime, Jason Clark hit three three-pointers to personally outscore the No. 8 Tigers, and the No. 14 Hoyas left Kansas City with the 111-102 upset win.

He’s so informative.

“I’m not Superman all day long.  I’m Clark Kent most of the time. I’m not going to go down the street with my tighty whiteys on and a light saber. Tracy Morgan don’t do that stuff. Tracy Morgan is subdued. I’m cool. I’m chilled out. I just get to fly over the cuckoo’s nest at 8:30 on Thursdays.” – Tracy Morgan via NYMag

Don’t tell me I can’t do something. I will devote my entire life to it, until I prove you wrong. Yeah, I’m looking at you Shutterfly. And I WILL find that missing photobook.

Audrey: I love your tenacity
me: it’s really just spite

Seriously. I’ve called all the post offices in Western Mass. UPS has their Mail Innovations “investigating” the situation. I don’t know what Mail Innovations is (presumably they’re something like Vocal Adrenaline), but you will not win Shutterfly. You won’t.
