Hey, Universe, you're a funny...um, entity

You know what the Universe threw at me yesterday? Free winnings! I donated to our local Public Radio station like I do...most every year. Usually. And THIS YEAR, I WON A GIVEAWAY!!! Prizes included: NEW BIKES! FLAT PANEL TV's! IPOD! TRIP TO EUROPE! MAC AIR!!! TRIP TO EUROPE!!!! (I know - twice, but it's what I so wanted) We won...free basketball tickets in a suite. You know what we don't really get into? Basketball. Like...never in the 7+ years of our relationship and never in the almost-39-years-of-my-life. HOWEVER...this year, Jamie is slated to have his surgery sometime soon (dates still unknown) after this game. So he's going to have himself a PARTAY with his Dude friends! Catered suite! VIP parking! BASKETBALL! It's funny. There are a lot of things I'd like to do for Jamie, and this isn't what would have EVER occurred to me, but...it's sort-of a cool thing I never would have imagined. So, thanks, Universe, for being WAY smarter than me I Rebekah.

WOW! That is awesome. Brian and I got to go to a suite event once. It was a blast. Very fun. Way funner than the game. Partay! Way to go Universe!

that is so cool!!!! and somewhat serendipitous that it happened to be something that was definitely a jamie-prize. 'cause you know you would have fought like dogs over the macbook air:-)

i just hope they make good on their promise this time--OPB do you hear me??

Boo-yaahh!

I got a little keychain in the shape of a guitar, so basketball and a suite, that's cool. :)

I'm so glad It gave you a little token of charity, after all the poo It's flung lately.
