2 hour delay here. I thought they might have cancelled, but they only have a 3 day week.

We’ve got about 4 wet inches with a couple more expected today. Yuck. Discomfiting.

I am discomfited by a lot of the news I read here today: Florida student suspended and charges brought against him for his refusal to “stomp on Jesus”, Assad reported to be dead — assassinated by his Iranian bodyguard, Rove predicts GOP likely to approve same sex marriage, etc.

Though a Kenyan, Barack bellows,”I’m fit”
But for four years, does naught but discomfit
Patriots on the right
No Constitution in sight
As Obama decides to “Mein Kampf” it

In the 70's, the ballroom dance instructor was discomfited by the disco fit many seemed to exhibit on the dance floor.

2 hour delay here as well, but although Fairfax and Arlington had decided by 5am, xsbaby’s school didn’t call well after 6 when i had already gotten her up and she had showered. SOOO annoying. she specifically didn’t set her alarm and asked me to get her up, in the off chance there was cancellation/delay, but it did no good since they call it so late. Her spring break isn’t until the 8th of April. This will be the first time since she’s gone to a non-Catholic school that they have not been off on Good Friday. i will let her take Friday off this week, just on principle.

A++++ OMG you can imagine xshub! but seriously, even better, ever more orgasmic for him, was the loss on Friday of the hoyas to Florida Gulf Coast!! he was peeing himself over that! SU will be playing here at the Verizon Center on Thurs PM. Holy Thursday Mass is at 7 pm and it’s in memory of his dad whose Bday it is that day. AND, he’s to be one of the 12 Apostles for the feetwashing.

In some countries they make a business of it -- weaving elaborate patterns and selling them to worshipers.

I've also seen elaborate displays around icons in homes -- just waiting until next year when the dried fronds are burned for Ash Wednesday. My church does not collect them. Father just says to burn them in the fire place. He says that they should not be thrown away.

Pathetic; that when the Democrats whine; rather than flex their collective muscle; our weak-willed Republicans suffer major discomfit - and do nothing.

The GOP should resist any attempt to tinker with this law. The best thing that can happen for them and for the nation is to let it come into full bloom.

yes that is SU’s location for both the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 games and then Atlanta thereafter for final 4. He’s not capable of behaving in a public place when SU plays, so it’s just as well. And they have the late game, so we will be home in time for him to see it.

The Penguins traded a guy named Morrow for another guy named Morrow.

So they won’t even have to change the name above the locker.
