Of Note — March 22
Happy spring, people! We didn’t have a single snowfall in North Carolina after that big dumping in the beginning of December. A little disappointing, but that’s okay! I’m happy that the flowers are starting to peep out, and it’s March Madness!! One of my brackets was perfect until tonight, and I’m pretty proud of that. Fingers crossed that they continue to do well, and even more fingers crossed that the Tar Heels do well.
I’m now officially of the opinion that audio books count as reading. So, with that in mind, I’m reading Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. I think it’s better than reading it, because then you’ve got Trevor’s delightful voice and his charming South African accent reading to you for seven CD discs worth of time.
I’m going through Game of Thrones at an alarmingly fast pace — I’m on season 4, episode 3. I’ll definitely be done before the next season starts (maybe even a week before), and then I’ll just be flailing about waiting for some of my favorite characters to be back on my screen.
At about 3:30 on Sunday afternoon, my mom texted me and asked me if I wanted to go to the Mumford & Sons concert at 7:30 — a woman in the neighborhood was sick and selling her tickets. They’re on my bucket list of concerts, so I obviously said we should go for it. The concert was incredible (Mumford absolutely rocks live), and I can’t stop thinking about the song “Forever.” They sang it in the encore with just a guitar, the four guys standing around one microphone, and it was utterly enchanting. Here’s a video of them doing it on the Nashville stop of their tour (from tonight. How lucky!).
I guess it’s technically drinking, but I had my very first bubble tea this week! There are a couple of places on Franklin Street where you can get it, and finally this week two of my coworkers and I went to try it out. I got a matcha with bubbles and BOY was it tasty. It’s too expensive for me to get too addicted (5 bucks a pop), but it’s a good treat from time to time.
Sunsets, the week of the ACC tournament in the office, Rock Roulette at Motorco, Marcus Mumford and his college basketball jokes, Rick Steves in the New York Times Magazine, testing out a coworker’s lipsticks at lunch, celebrating Erin’s birthday, being mad at Barack Obama’s bracket, Robb Stark.
