Music Monday: (London and Maddie Sign Up for Mendham Patriots) Basketball with Lil Bow Wow

September 28th, 2009 · No Comments

It’s a school holiday here in the Roxiticus Valley, and London, Maddie and I are enjoying a lazy Monday morning.  I’m wearing my leopard jammies, and Rex is in the kitchen making chocolate chip pancakes.  We just signed up for Mendham Patriots Basketball (just recreational clinics on Saturday this year, but London will probably try out […]

March Madness and a Visit from the Tooth Fairy

March 21st, 2009 · No Comments

March Madness continues here in the Roxiticus Valley. We started the day with a little madness of our own, the last Mendham Patriots girls’ basketball clinic for London and Maddie. Now Rex’s son PostBoy’s alma mater, the Villanova Wildcats, are giving UCLA a whupping.
At the half, it was time to pull London’s ninth tooth, a […]

March Madness Continues with No Million Bucks for Roxy

March 20th, 2009 · No Comments

You know what they say, don’t quit your day job. I’m up working late on a sale assignment, with some great March Madness basketball to keep me company. I had a perfect bracket (15 for 15) going into the last game of the night, Illinois (#5 seed) vs. Western Kentucky (#12 seed). At one point […]

March Madness Is Coming!

February 28th, 2009 · No Comments

When I first started blogging in earnest back in February 2008, one of the first things I shared with my loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers was my love of March Madness college basketball. It occasionally divides our household, when London and I root for my alma mater, the Syracuse Orangemen, and Maddie and Rex root […]

Ooh, Growin’ Up

April 5th, 2008 · No Comments

Rex always says that the best age for kids is from 5 to 12, when they’re old enough to let you relax with some grown-up time on your own, but not yet teenagers who think they know it all and that you know nothing.
Tonight proved that to me. Rex’s mom (Grammy) and Rex’s old high […]

March Madness: Davidson Almost Makes It to the Final Four

March 30th, 2008 · No Comments

We left the Roxiticus Valley today for a visit to Westchester to see Brent and Fitz’s new house. The weather was nice for a drive, and on the way up we took the scenic route over Bear Mountain. For lunch, Brent cooked several southern specialties, including shrimp & sausage over grits. If I can get […]

First Video Post: Roxiticus Desperate Housewives Love a Little Honesty!

March 28th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I saw this YouTube video on someone else’s blog and had to have it for my own.
If you came here looking for March Madness Second Chance bracket contests, the Sweet Sixteen started last night, so you’re too late to get in on the action. Unfortunately for me, I picked West Virginia to beat Xavier in […]

March Madness: Bracket Busted? Second Chance Contests

March 25th, 2008 · No Comments

Friday’s four big upsets in Tampa made NCAA history and busted everyone’s perfect brackets. It was a great day of basketball, but not such a great day if you had hoped to make an easy $$ million. So the Roxiticus Desperate Housewives are going to get back to work and find the best March Madness […]

Let the Beatings Begin!

March 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

I could mean many different things with that headline…could it be a veiled reference to my current BlogExplosion Battle of the Blogs record of 3 wins and 10 losses? Does it have something to do with the fact that not one of my 22 March Madness brackets was perfect?
Well, maybe its just that I’ve chosen […]

March Madness: Big East Update

March 12th, 2008 · No Comments

By now you know that Villanova crushed Syracuse by 19 points, 82-63, in one of the most awful games I’ve seen in some time, neither team playing particularly well. I could have had more fun watching the re-cap of Eliot Spitzer’s resignation….over and over. Or not. Villanova moves on to face Georgetown in the Big […]

March Madness: Foot in Mouth After the Half

March 12th, 2008 · No Comments

I taunted my favorite NYC sports blogger with a comment on his site saying Syracuse would stomp Villanova in the game today. With 8 minutes to go, Syracuse is down by 10 and it is not looking good.
The only good news that would come from a loss today is that I wouldn’t have to taint […]

Go Tar Heels!

This one’s for Brent…..

Due to a bizarre trip home from The Little Mermaid on Saturday night, the bizarre being caused by power outages that shut down train service, I ended up watching the UNC-Duke game on Saturday night at the bar at the Hyatt Headquarters Plaza in Morristown. We headed home when the score was […]
