You know, some of you mock my fixation with curling, but the Curling News linked to me and my traffic goes up by 50 per cent from last Monday. Maybe I should turn this into a curling blog or something.

As for the big news, I still can't announce it. It's frustrating and driving me nuts, but that's the way these things work sometimes. It could still fall apart, although that would make me very sad. But to answer the Curling News, no, my being on a winning curling team wasn't the big news. I have a healthy ego, but I'm not quite that large an egomaniac. This is legitimately a big deal....if I can ever get to talk about it.

Not much else to report today. I had a discretionary day to burn before the end of March so I decided to take it today. So it was pretty much a nice, lazy day around the house. I took it in case I needed to recover from the Furspiel. Lord knows I needed it last year. It took me days to recover. I skipped my next league curling game because I was in so much pain. This time, I'm fine. I'll even curl again tomorrow. Of course, the fact I have to collect my money for winning the Furspiel from the team's Skip has nothing to do with that.

Also, no suggestions on what to do with the cargo I won. Cathy can't think of anything. Maybe some we could get some food shipped up, but probably not. And we thought about the bed, but that would be complicated bit of business. Also, she wants to get it relatively soon. That means we likely wouldn't be able to at least lie on it first before buying it.

So I'll probably just sell it. Besides, the couple of hundred dollars I would get for it would come in handy for the New York Trip Fund.

Anyway, tomorrow there will be nothing about curling on the blog. I promise.

Congratulations on the big win! And I can't wait to hear what news you have.

Have you tried asking the GN housing people if they have a queen sized bed you can trade for your double?
