Tammy thinks I'm just putting on sympathy weight because of her pregnancy, which started around the same time that my I started packing on the pounds. Maybe, but I'm not conscious of it. I have three theories of my own:
- My competitive nature. Maybe instead of the "sympathy" weight, I'm just trying to remain the alpha weight gainer in the house. Okay, if this is the case, I'm not conscious of it either. Sooooo, could it be...
- Hibernation weight. You know, my primitive instincts are telling me to eat-eat-eat and sleep-sleep-sleep. Only two problems with this theory. First, I haven't been sleep-sleep-sleeping. Second, winters in the Atlanta-area feel like springs and autumns in Ohio (where I spent the first 30 years of my life). With a double-wide shadow cast on my first two theories, the real reason is probably...
- My utter lack of self control. I don't have to eat, but I do. I could put that fourth hot dog down, but I don't. Do I need to drink calories every day? I do not. It's my fault.

Speaking of staying tuned, tomorrow I should be able to make a big announcement related to my upcoming poetry chapbook.
And yes, my NCAA bracket is busting. Pitt was one of my Final Four teams, and Butler knocked 'em off earlier tonight. I picked St. John's to make the Elite 8, and they didn't even win their first round game. Oh well. Theres' always next year for the perfect bracket.
