Wednesday Afternoon Ramblings

• Just a reminder for those of you who thought I knew what I was talking about when it came to the NBA -- I predicted both the Mavericks and Suns to win their 1st round series. On the other hand, I did place my trust in my Cavs, and so far, so good.

• “Gossip Girl” returned to the air this week with yet another fantastic episode. Is it wrong that I just LOVE Blair? I know she’s evil, and a bitch, and her manipulations are designed to make you not like her, but that’s why I love her. I’m sorry, I just do.

• Mario Kart Wii comes out this weekend, and I’ve already got my game completely pre-paid. I’m going to pick it up and play it pretty much non-stop for a day, at least. I don’t have many Wii games -- honestly, the system has kind of lost its novelty for me -- but I’m a huge fan of the Mario Kart series, and I can’t imagine it’ll be any less fun on the Wii.
