I’m in a good mood. People say money can’t buy happiness, but it’s buying mine today. For the past two years I’ve owed the government taxes and I’m happy to report that this year they owe me!!! North Carolina owes me $8 and the federal government owes me a whole lot more. Bye bye, credit card! It’s weird. I kinda feel like I hit the lottery.
Last night in addition to getting a shockingly large tax return, the Mountaineers won the NIT. I know, I know. It’s not the NCAA tourney. But seriously, how many teams can say their last game of the season was a win? Ok, listen up all of you other schools out there: leave my coaches alone! First it was Alabama trying to take RichRod, and now Michigan State wants to steal Beilein! (NC State wanted him last year) WTF? WVU is a solid contender in each of the big sports, which is a pretty big deal, and now that other schools see how well we’re doing, they want to run away with our coaches. Not cool. Not cool at all.
You wanna hear my weird Goonies thing? Ok, I’ll tell you! So, a few weeks ago – maybe two – I was with my ‘break buddy’ at the RBC Center and we were talking about the movie because it was being shown on a big screen in Raleigh. I didn’t get around to seeing it. Then last week, another friend from the RBC Center reminded me that I think he laughs like Sloth, the ogre, from the movie. I was like, “Oh yeah!” cause he totally does. It’s funny. And then yesterday a coworker – just out of the blue – asked if I had ever seen the movie. He was listening to his iPod and apparently a song from the Goonies was playing. And then! Then I was reading the news and stumbled across an article saying that Steven Spielberg was thinking of turning The Goonies into a musical. So I took all of these weird little coincidences as a sign that the God of Movie Rentals wanted me to watch The Goonies. It’s rented and I’ll probably watch it at some point this weekend.
It’s another fun-filled RBC Center weekend. It’s almost the last one, though, which is a little sad.
