Morning Free Association 4/27/16

Here we go again!

I’m going to take a page out of the book of my homeroom teacher through high school, Ms. Santucci, and greet you in her classic deadpan delivery,

Happy Wednesday, claaaaasssss.

After a lovely night off, we return to playoff action tonight. While I thought the NHL usually held off on beginning a round until the entire round before it has ended (did I imagine this?), here web are: round two (AKA the Eastern Conference semifinal) begins tonight.

John Tavares and the Islandsrs will open up the second round in Tampa Bay. The Predators will be in Anaheim to play game seven of their Western Conference Quarterfinal series against the Ducks.

Maybe we’ll get lucky and see a perfectly executed Flying V.

Or, maybe it’ll be a bunch of the same old back and forth ping pong hockey action.

Either way, it’ll be great, because there’s nothing better than playoff hockey. You know, except when your team is actually involved and actually wins.

Anyway, what’s on tap this morning?

Good Morning All! I’m in a good mood still! Much to do, but taking my time.

Ducks all the way.Fowler coming of age has really catapulted them. Yes, Perry is an asshole. I’d feel differently if he wore a spoked B on his chest. His dirtiness is like an extra skill. There aren’t any players on this team that I like that much, I just think it’s their time.

Another double header tonight! Show me the money! Jo is running the clock again and I’m working with my oldest. Good times.

My mower has an electrical problem and I’m not finding it. It’s not exactly a complicated system. That’s why it’s driving me crazy. Right now i’m thinking there is a wire broken somewhere as the machine is old and I’ve done the obvious. Oh well.

Where to paddle this weekend is weighing heavier on my mind than the mower.

I’m thinking a second cup is on tap.

I don’t think I would feel differently about Perry were he on the Bruins. I would still want to set him on fire. I should write an article abut all the ways I would “take care” of Perry.

Time to tear it up. I love projects that reach this point only because you have nothing to lose. Best case you find the problem and fix it. Worst case, it didn’t work to begin with.

So no hockey tonight either? Hm.

I thought things started tomorrow? Though yes it is odd Game 7 will happen after game 1 of the second round.

Way to fuck up and overlap the rounds, NHL schedulers.

NBA does this and I like it.

I think they did that because Tampa hasn’t played in 6 days?

So with Vladar signed, and Malcolm being waiver eligible in the fall, may we assume that Malcolm backs up Tuukka and Vladar backs up Cypress Hill?

Man, it was glorious to not have to watch hockey last night. We went out for dinner! A place that I’ve kept my eye on finally opened up last night. Lovely drinks and schnitzel! Also, had the owner and kitchen descend upon us when news of my shellfish allergy was blurted out (not by me). They constantly checked on us due to boredom (it was dead because no one knows they’re open) or may for reassurance, both theirs and ours.

Dead or not, I like when owners & chefs take the time to care. Honestly, I’ve started to like the non-chain places in Manchester and the NH area more than Boston because it’s not usually as much of a mad house and the atmosphere is often nicer for that.

Good Morning!

-Who ya got? Ducks or Preds? I think Ducks pull it off.
-Now I really want a fucking flying V. I know it’s probably a flawed tactic, but maybe it’ll razzle dazzle the shit out of the other team and work.
-I bought the Hamilton soundtrack for my wife and was listening to it yesterday. I guess I can understand the hype about the show.
-I need a new job (repeat ad infinitum until new job is procured)
-I patched a semi-large hole last night in about 10 minutes, tops. The previous owners were lazy bastards. Not that hard, people.
-Speaking of patching I’ve watched more “How To” videos in the last week than I think I have in the last 5 years. I feel like I can do anything now

Throw the Ducks into the La Brea Tar Pits.

I want them to, I just don’t think they will

I have no preference, honestly. I just think the Ducks will win. I have no basis for this thought.

Good morning, friends!

The semester is functionally over, so I get to chill for a stretch. T-minus 13 days until my defense.

Hopefully my defense goes more smoothly than the Bruins’. Too soon?

Such a short window. I had 10 weeks to kill between submission and defense. It wasn’t bad. I stayed home most days, slept in a lot, and only went to campus when I was teaching on Mondays and Wednesdays

It is a short window. And all of the committee will be giving/grading finals during most of that stretch. We give our final on Friday and have to submit final grades on Monday, so I’ll have a week of nothing.
