I picked the Saints to win in my office pool, and I think they were the only ones to to win out of 12 selections. So I'm not sure how many more times I'm going to donate my $2 to this futile cause. I'd feel much better if I put it in an envelope and sent it to NO.

And! Was I on a sugar high or was there a post about candy that disappeared?!?

Amen, Judy B!

Richard, I'm not a betting girl, though I've been known to occasionally jump naked into a nice, shallow football pool. And I think that if I were to bet on anything these days, I'd put my money on this city (as all of us who are living here, now, have done) and its team without a speck of hesitation. We are infused with a profound spirit of determination right now and anyone (or team) who might be thinking of messing with us had better think twice. You can take that to the bank.

Oh, and you were not on a sugar-high. I loaded the unfinished post from Flickr, which means no saving as a draft. So I had to jump back and pull it off. Apparently not fast enough. At least that's how I remember it. But There have been some evenings where I AM BIEN, (if you know what I mean), and have tried to post before it kicks in, and sometimes I wake up the next morning and am not quite sure what I did. (Kinda like this post, but not the comment.)

So, maybe there's more to it than what I remember and it was up longer. I dunno.

I have such a hard time getting to sleep these days. I don't do it every night, but still I am thankful for Ambien and the real, quality sleep it gives me. And whoever says not to get out of bed once you've taken it is missing out on all kinds of weird fun. Trying to stay awake while on it produces an array of interesting peripheral visual sensations. (Hallucinations?) But I don't suggest trying to play Scrabble after taking it.

I am also of the sleep little crowd, though I probably do get 4ish hours a night, which as we know is NEVER enough. Between stress and a five year old and a wife that also sleeps little, I'm lucky I sleep at all. I take ambien fairly frequently, "Better Living Through Chemistry" is my motto.

So the candy post might have only been up for only a little bit and I was lucky enough to catch it. I was going to comment at some point that I grew up the junk food KING. But I'll wait till the post finally arrives in all it's glory.

World Class recovery is the feeling that we all have this week.

A colleague of mine commented on how he didn't actually win anything Monday. How ridiculous we are that we should celebrate a victory!

We are celebrating the victory that we all have in common.

In this day of media pressure to be white, black, Hispanic, gay, straight, young, old et alia, NO MATTER the walk of life

We all have the Saints.

On the inside we have a smirk. People are not honking at delayed starts at traffic lights the way they normally would.

Productivity at work is up because of the spark that was struck Monday.

Believe the hype.

Our Community does.

Well put, Dillyberto. Having the team back at home, especially with another win, has been a enormous tonic for the morale of this city.

And indeed, the Saints are something we all have in common -- that, and the disaster that changed all our lives. No matter what came before or how we've chosen to define ourselves, there's no question that we're all part of the same tribe now. It brings me to recall Mark of Wet Bank Guide's post and quote from Henry V, a portion of which I excerpt here:

...From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother...

I've never felt as strong a sense of connection to my home and my people as I do now.

Lisa and Richard: maybe I ought to get on that Ambien too, I can't get a full night of sleep. When I freelance too much I don't have enough time, and to top it off I can't stay asleep for whatever time I do have - I wake up every 20-30 minutes... ugh!

I'm curious about your candy post, I'm currently reading "Candy Freak" and thinking about all the lost candy of my youth (oh, yeah, and I bought about a pound of various bulk candies last weekend too to stay awake and freelance! lol)
