Lea in Louisville!

My niece came to visit! She and her parents decided to make the 5.5-hour drive to spend a weekend in the Ville for some NCAA tourney-watching and Lost-board-game-playing. We had boatloads of fun, though the cats were flummoxed.

The results of the tournament were dreadful. All the teams we cared about -- Louisville, Maryland (Paige's and my alma mater) and Virginia (Brian's alma mater) -- had a chance to win or force overtime in the final seconds and didn't.

It was unbelievable. Louisville trailed by one with seven seconds left and missed a three-pointer. Maryland missed a half-court heave that would have tied Butler at the buzzer. Virginia missed a clean look at a three-pointer to tie, also at the buzzer, and Brian had about two minutes to mourn before the family had to hit the road.

But like I said, still a great, relaxing weekend. And Holly gets back from spring break tonight, with stories of her friend's bachelorette extravaganza.

I think there should be some kind of caption-writing contest for what Lea would say, if she could.

"What the heck happened to Ringo and Rita?"

"You know, I'm really not that crazy about this hat, as cool as my mom thinks it is."

"When are they going to take me to the wine bar?"

Or... "I can't believe my stupid Dad gave away his 'One character may ignore the monster' cards! And I really can't believe my crazy uncle shot Hurley. Hurley!"
