Goooooooooooood morning, B2B!
Well, the Conference Finals have begun, and the Blues have a 1-0 lead over the Sharks.
There’s not much more to say other than “sorry this is late”.
What’s on tap?
Good Afternoon All! Great weekend! Cabin on the lake was extremely rustic. I’ve seen third world housing that compared favorably. Still, beautiful lake, no cell service and Jo. Also, bourbon!!! and a growler of Red Lantern (irish red) from our local.
Lot’s of local rain meant an extra wild ride on the river. I could hear Jo yelling “Fuck, fuck, fuck” through some of the rougher sections. No carnage, though. Which is great. Also, there was a pair of eagles that flew over us several times and allowed us to paddle pretty close while they were sitting in trees. Very cool!
We stayed late at the cabin, coffee at the water, then disc on the way home.
Been planting and weeding this morning. A nice way to start the week.
Especially the weeding!
Move went well. There are now boxes everywhere AND our furniture. I also am finally done with a vendor here at work. Meaning for the first time in two work days I get to sit down. That’s nice.
Yay moved in. Boo stuff still in boxes.
Phwew! I thought it was my computer and was sharpening up the axe!!!!
Summer C2 hockey starts Sunday! I receive my team issued socks and jersey Thursday.
No tye-die socks for this league?
The team actually bought socks so I wouldn’t wear the tie die socks
My tie died socks became washed out after one wash. The “cotton” hockey socks are actually polyester and tie-dye kits just don’t work on polyester very well. They now looks like cotton candy.
That is unfun of them
It is, but the green socks are REALLY nice!
They look sharp!
Oh boo on that!
I mean, it’s a great uniform.
Small Batch – I approve of this team name!
Local bar sponsors the team! The owner always brings Miller Lite after the game.
A few quick bullet points:
Ten years, we’ve been rusting, needing so much more than dusting, needing exercise, a chance to use our skills…
-Getting things done, on a monday? what?
-Tell her to look at you. and then say…”I’m the captain now”.
-I miss board game night with friends…one of the few routine gathering events i miss dreadfully.
-YOU WONT WIN WITH THAT THINKING! YOU ARE GREAT! YOU WILL WIN! YOU CAN DO IT!…honestly all you need to win a guy over just carry yourself with confidence, show interest, and be yourself. If he ends up not into you then he isn’t worth the time or emotions.
-YOU CAN DO IT!!
Uhh, my bullet points all broke. Weird.
Welcome to my life.
Unless you edited they look good to me
Morning all! Red Sox hit their run quota again yesterday. Ortiz is still a god among men.
Is it time to go back to bed?
Oh and it’s snowing. I am not amused.
When we got home last night I was still outside unloading and I saw Jo closing windows (not the computer kind). Is it cold? I asked. Yes, start the woodstove! she said and I did and it’s still going and it’s the middle of May and WTF???
It was 40-F out when I got up this morning — who knows how cold it got last night.
I bought a whole bunch of veggie plants from the local greenhouse/nursery on Saturday. None of them got in the ground, so when I went out this morning, the basil was kind of wilted – I presume from the cold (but perhaps it didn’t get watered properly yesterday?). I watered everything, and ran to work hoping for the best.
I was also being stubborn about turning on the heat this morning because IT’S FUCKING MAY AND I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO TURN THE FUCKING HEAT ON!. Finally broke down and turned the fucking heat on because I was shivering uncontrollably. Hard to drink coffee when you’re doing that.
It was only spitting snow here but fuck was it awful.
IT’S MAY! I JUST WANT TO PUT MY WINTER COAT AWAY FOR THE SEASON!
Timmy was grousing about snow on twitter this morning as well.
Ugh fuck snow so hard.
Also mucho thanks on watching the Spanish GP with me Sunday. Monaco in two weeks is going to be a blast to watch.
You’re welcome! Thanks for putting up with my complete lack of knowledge. Mimosas again for Monaco?
Yes! Nothing like that good 8am drinking before softball starts
I’ll be sure to join you!
It just wont be the huge bottles of booze like the winners get
That’s really what sold me.
Ortiz’s Jagr-esque old man superpowers make him retiring after this season rather difficult to believe.
Is it bad that I assume the entire team is on steroids?
I assume that about most sports.
Got a bunch done this weekend. Put up some more drywall and starting mudding on Saturday, followed up by my first preseason softball game of the year. Holy shit are my legs sore, this fat guy was not made to run. Have to leave at 10 today for a Dr’s appointment, and I couldn’t be happier about that. It’s official, this place has gone 100% bezerk, and when they decide (if they decide) to move to Manchester, I’m not going.

Happy to see the right teams are leading their series 1-0 coming in to Monday. Memorial Cup starts on Wednesday so be on the look out for updates on Jake DeBrusk and maybe Jeremy Lauzon.
What’s on tap today
Happy to see the right teams are leading their series
This is inaccurate. The Sharks do not currently lead their series
Except not snark, because I genuinely feel that way. Fuck you David Backes, I do not care for you nor have I ever.
I honestly have no idea where I got my fandom of the Blues. I like Shattenkirk mostly for the name, the jerseys are pretty nice. This year it had a lot to do with them beating the Hawks so I’m sticking with it all the way, but even with that not being the case, I just enjoy watching the Blues (minus Ott) play. I won’t be upset if the Sharks win though.
This year it had a lot to do with them beating the Hawks
This is why I’m rooting for the Blues.
Useful idiots. #TeamJumbo
I really don’t care about the Blues, I don’t want them to win, but I respect their utility in eliminating the Hawks, ergo, useful idiots.
I read that as calling us idiots at first & thought “well okay then” but duh. Your reasoning is way more logical & obvious than my dumb brain lol
Morning folks, howzitgoin?
Went to a craft beer festival on Saturday, which was pretty good. Most of the breweries in the province were there (although oddly, not the two more or less run by the guy Nash who is more or less the Nova Scotia Beer Baron).
Good times. Had a couple really excellent beers from a brewery called Meander River, which I had heard of, but never seen in the city, and was superb. Gold Stars all around.
It was great stuff. $40 for admission, a glass (an actual, nice, Belgian-style beer glass, and 16(!!) 4 oz taster tickets)
So not all that far off from the cost of 4 pints of decent beer at most brew pubs anyway. Win.
The glass plus the beer was surely worth $40. Good buy!
Would ave been $30 if we’d made up our mind earlier than last Tuesday. Oh well.
