I think this article demonstrates what a poor job analytics does in describing or placing a value on anything involving creativity…. including hockey. Everyone can put that in their fancy stat pipe and smoke it!

Guys, really. NEVER EVER EVER buy from Sportssquatch. They lied to Discover saying that I didn’t want to return my hoodie, and that I was “just another person trying to perpetuate a fraud to get something for free.”

This guy, Jack Moore, is a fucking piece of work.

Do you have the return shipping tracking?

I’ve always found Discover’s service pretty helpful. Hopefully they can resolve this for you.

Miss Muse

Oh yes I sure do! I even have the emails where I was helpfully asking if they could fix the hoodie for me or give me a refund, and where they said NO.

Lunch time for me is 12:30

Miss Muse

Mine too. I decided upon that just recently and while I love that more than half the day is over when I get back from it, I always end up questioning myself around 11:30 when I’m hungry all over again.

Thanks to Satan81, I have that “Hearts On Fire” song stuck in my head.

Random observation from my current task: When you type “Does” enough times, especially in all caps, it turns into one of those funny words that doesn’t ever seem to be spelled right.

Good (late) morning, peeps!

BULLET POINTS:

  • For a day that isn’t busy, I’ve been pretty busy. Zero fucking around. Well, until I came here (I bet a lot of people say that).
  • Got a huge thing that’s been a pain in my ass out of the way last night (thanks, CIO!).
  • Coffee is doing the trick, but I could use a little more of the trick.
  • Trivia tonight with my BFF – it’s her birthday.
  • The Stanley Cup Playoffs begin tonight. Remember the playoffs?
  • Remember the Alamo?
  • There’s no basement at the Alamo.
  • I’m a loner, Dottie. A rebel.
  • Welcome to my stream of consciousness. Scary, right?
  • I had two choices for dinner last night: a frozen waffle, or cheese. I was mulling them over when my roommates offered me some ribeye with corn and carrots. Needless to say, I took them up on their yummy offer.
  • Jesus, I have TWO roommates now. Weird.

    P.S.- by “corn and carrots” I definitely meant “corn and fancy yummy potatoes”. Oops.

    Yeah, I can see how fancy yummy potatoes could be mistaken for plain old boring carrots. razz

    Good morning All, another double tonight. Remolded skates were better. I’ll wear them again tonight.I should buy another pair before the end of summer (I’m down to my last four pairs!).

    It’s 10:30 and I haven’t put pants on yet….typical.

    Coffee, bourbon and chainsaw on tap…the possibilities are endless!

    Yes. Do you want to know why I have four pairs of skates? Because I gave two pairs away!

    Do you just wear a pair depending on your outfit or something?

    I found out there are old versions of Logic and Protools (recording software) for my 13 year old Mac G5. Looks like this thing ain’t a paper weight after all!
