Haley's Comet

Just as we get to witness the majesty of the celestial event known as Haley's Comet very very rarely, only slightly more frequently does one view a Virginia basketball win over Duke.

Which happened last night.

And what a pleasure to behold.  Me?  I started watching; Virginia took a commanding lead; Duke came roaring back at the half; I realized that it was going to make me nauseous if Duke wins; I turned the television to another station while taping the game; I watched the last several minutes live, nausea be damned; Virginia won; and as noted above, what a pleasure to behold.

Fast forward to about an hour ago:  I've returned home from a meeting with my physician to discuss the blood work related to my latest physical, with a report that was vastly more positive than I had any right to expect.  On the way home, to celebrate, I stopped at the PriceChopper and bought a bag of chips and some onion dip.  I just finished watching the first half on tape and have only come downstairs to transfer some money to Daughter #2.

I leave now to go watch the second half.

The astronaut looks like this ...

A contrarian might argue that it's finished.
