Random Thoughts of the Day

There was a forecast for a big snow storm in NYC today so Lee and I left the house a little this early so that he could play basketball in Cunningham Park before the snow began. He doesn't mind the cold weather and we even took our usually two laps around the park.

About 12 noon we took a walk to the local multiplex to see Did You Hear About the Morgans. The story was silly, but the acting of Sara Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant saved the movie. When we left the theater at about 2 PM it was snowing.

The NJIT basketball team played Rutgers as the game was broadcast on WOR. I listened to part of the game as the NJIT Highlanders lost to the Scarlet Knights 71-62. At least they were competitive.

I had a stack of magazines on my table, so I thought I should try to catch up on some reading. I picked up the recent issue of Discover which discussed the top 100 science stories of the year.

At about 5 PM I turned on WFUV and listened to Pete Fornatale who interviewed the group Aztec Two-Step. After the interview he played my favorite holiday oldie, Santa Claus is coming to town by the Four Seasons. I had always enjoyed that version since it was released in the early 1960s.

It is shortly 8 PM now and am listening to Cousin Brucie. So far there is only 2 inches or so of snow on the ground the the weather forecast is for 10-15 inches in NYC. We are hoping to see the St. Johns-Hofstra game at Madison Square Garden tomorrow,
