    congratulations, kansas 

    zulieka giving kansas her love, look out boston here she comes on your ncaa college basketball championship. therefore congratulations william s burroughs who shot his wife in the head and killed her and was still allowed to do drugs and write and live free, unlike oj whose gloves didnt fit. etc.

    but most of all congratulations to zulieka one of my favorite bloggers of all time because she has a grace about her writing and a sensuality and an intelligence that is completely overlooked when the lost try to explain the varied nuances of blogging.

    the problem with journalists and authors and even other bloggers when they write about bloggers is they completely ignore the breadth and variety of the 100+ million blogs. they pretend that everyone is either matt drudge or dooce or some lonewacko banging away in his mothers basement. truth of the matter is there are as many different types of blogs as there are snowflakes. and zulieka’s is one of the snowiest.

    for years i have had the pleasure of watching her fascinating life unfold and yesterday i read that she is moving from kansas to massachusetts(!) apparently her mother bought her a house. so look out mass, z, lil baby z, and freddy are headed your way.

    but first, heres what zulieka noticed about the game, something that i didnt see since i was working.

    Then after screaming I felt bad for the Memphis underdogs, who came out of nowhere and really did deserve the win, even though the cameras shied away from their cheerleaders the whole time making us wonder about the implications of that absent footage until finally an accidental shot of a female trombone player from their side cleared it up. Wow, Kansas girls aren’t exactly hot but at least there’s been some circulation in the gene pool.

    This is typical of me, and it’s happened before at an auction and at casino. I love to win at any cost. What a fantastic game, what lovely tattooed boys. Yes, goddamn it, I was watching it too, at the same time you were.

    for some reason i felt sad that she was moving away from kansas. i have no idea why. its more likely that i will find myself near boston than kansas, but i guess i always thought that kansas was better with zulieka than without her.

    and maybe i think that boston doesnt deserver.

    did i say that outloud?
