Morning Free Association, May 17

Good Morning, everyone!

Last night saw the second game of the Eastern Conference Final. And it went into Overtime, which is exactly what everyone wanted!

Apparently, Jeremy Roenick gave some on-air advice to Sidney Crosby:

And Crosby proved that he’s a sniper!

sniper

Yes he is, Sarah Manning!

Anyway, the one thing I have discovered in only peripherally catching this series is that Andrew WK’s “Party Hard” actually sucks so hard as a goal song. I thought it would be better. Maybe it’s because it’s the Penguins that use it that makes it suck.

Helena

Yes, Helena, I agree; the Penguins are poor copies!

Anyway, cross that song off the list.

the list

Oh yeah, I guess I should mention the Sharks and Blues play again tonight.

Oh dear

Anyway, how’s you? What’s yous plan for day?

Lunch today:
Roasted squash and pepper sandwich with avocado AND ramp pesto!! Holy Smokes! Great sandwich! Plus, a glass of “Dire Chinchilla” Firefly Hollow’s Imperial Pale Ale.

“Ramp pesto”? Sounds like something scraped off the pavement of a highway exit.

Also, i feel like attention hasnt been brought to the fact that Orphan Black is simply a fantastic show.

I’ll have to look for it and give it a try. We are heading into the 10th and final season of “New Tricks” (also BBC America and my library).

I still need to catch the third season because my cable company decided to drop BBC America because of course they would drop one of the channels I watched most.

The show is fantastic. Tatiana Maslany is fucking phenomenal.

A couple of afternoon bullet points for ya!

  • A co-worker has been playing “Appalachian Mountain music” for the last 45 minutes. It’s driving people crazy and I’m proud of him. Also, it sounds like the bathroom is an upscale restaurant with the way it echos
  • The cat we were cat-sitting for went back home this afternoon. Pippi is now moping around the house according to Em. Quite sad

    Just picked up “The Best of Doc Watson” at the library – inspired by your post!

    So our receptionist is the hub of all human relations here – not like HR, more like, who gets along with who, yadda yadda.

    Anyway, she is convinced that my work crush is the right man for me, and she wants us to be married.

    In February someone bought a subscription to the Rolling Stone on my behalf. I don’t know who it was was or why they did it, but I appreciate the gift. The Rolling Stone actually covers a broad range of music and politics. There’s always enough material that I disagree and agree with to keep me reading.

    Matt Taibbi is one of the better long-form political writers working right now. So long since I read the print edition, I don’t know if hes only online now or not though

    I feel mildly offended by this despot-ing of Canada’s gift to the world.

    …says the guy who conceived the idea of the Poutini while driving one day. 15 parts gin, 1 part gravy, garnished with a cheese curd lanced on a fry.

    I thought you were gonna say 15 parts gin, 1 part Putin.

    This being why its more disturbing that the one with gravy in it

    DrHandgrenaid

    That would be the Putini rather than the Poutini.

    Also, more disturbing.

    Good Morning All! I’m still on a high from the weekend… it’s all natural, really!

    Double header tonight! Yay!

    I don’t mind the Guins tying the series, because we all want 7 games plus OT, right?

    Not much to add except the bourbon to my coffee!

    No I want the season to be over because there has already been too much hockey with no Bruins playing and I’m growing bitter. It’s time for everyone else to stop having fun and get off my lawn lol

    BULLET POINTS:

  • Say “yes!” to coffee.
  • Screw the pollen count.
  • But not The Count, he’s a nice guy, and he’s taught me a lot over the years.
  • http://i.makeagif.com/media/9-09-2015/btIsUk.gif

  • Left the USB adapter to my keyboard at home because I was doing worky (and bloggy) things there last night. Now I’m using a keyboard with like a six inch layer of dust on it, and that’s after the Lysol wipe. Oops!
  • Skated during lunch yesterday. Felt a lot better than it did Saturday, and my skates fit fucking PERFECTLY. Apparently there is something I can do right. Anyway, I only got a couple laps in, but they were good. I have to get back on board with stopping, crossovers, etc. Skating was my bread and butter, I just have to get the feel back. Doing it again today.
  • Speaking of skating… so much more glide on new skates than the old, huh? I feel like I don’t even have to move my legs and I’m flying out there. Weird.
  • I should be running intervals or something as well, so I can be ready for hockey…
  • comment image

  • …but tonight I’m going to my coworker’s restaurant to drink instead. Can’t win ’em all, guys!
  • I really dislike these long offseasons.
  • I better go get some things done.

    Yes, the new skates are amazing! Glad yesterday was better. Seriously, if you skate well, you don’t need to be fast. Being in control is a better skill. I see lots of fast players that can’t maneuver well. Older, slower players just deke the shit out of them with stops, turns and circles. You don’t even have to be a great stickhandler. As long as you can protect the puck with your body, you’re golden. We need to play some hockey together. We need to get Bagel Bruin in the mix, as well!

    This jersey smelled bad all the time. No matter what I did it always had an odor, so I donated it to goodwill. The sleeves were short as well, so I didn’t wear it often.

    Hey, I can Jagrbutt all damn day!

    I used to be sneaky-fast. Now, I’m not even sneaky, hahaha. I’ll keep working at it, I think there are 14 public skates between now and the start of the skills clinic. After I finish that (ten weeks), I’m gonna join a league.

    Good morning, have some bullet points for your reading pleasure this morning

  • Fucking Roenick, Fucking Crosby, Fucking Penguins. Damnit don’t win any more games Pittsburgh
  • My sides hurt from laughing so much last night. One of Em’s co-workers joined us for a Cards Against Humanity night and got absolutely hammered. By the end of the night he was providing color commentary on everyone’s hand saying none of them were funny then laughing like a mad man, then when his got read he’d burst out in exclamation that there’s your winner. My god we were all in tears laughing.
  • Met one of GH’s clones last night too. Em doesn’t see it, but I can see past the disguise. I won’t be fooled.
  • Only 4 more days (including today) until I’m on vacation!!!
  • Coffee and water on tap today. My desire to not have coffee has passed thank god

    mediocre coffee in a plastic mug

    Barf! You need a french press at work. They make them in stainless steel so you could get one that can withstand a work environment. The coffee is fresh. You need a decent mug, as well. Plastic coffee mugs would make me stop drinking coffee. I’d rather have it poured hot right into my hands. Get some unbreakable nonplastic mug. You will then be free to fall in love with coffee again.
    PS A little bourbon wouldn’t hurt.

    When it comes to coffee (and bourbon) I can rise to the occasion.

    carvinbass18
    Editor

    I love coffee and I used to have a metal mug that would keep my coffee hot all morning long here but it got knocked off my kiosk one day and bent so it wouldn’t stand up straight. A french press would be great, but the coffee machine here at work is in the break room in the middle of the building and production is all the way down at the far end of it. We’re not allowed to have food or drink on the floor with coffee mugs and water bottles being the exception.

    Funny thing with that is they say it’s for the “oh chemical fumes from acetone and isopropyl could land on your food / drink and be unsafe but everyone’s coffee mugs don’t have close-able lids and they’re okay. Styrofoam cups that have lids & soda bottles that have caps that seal the bottles aren’t okay. Way to think that one through guys

    Long-Winded Striped Mofo

    Maybe just a new metal mug then. I can’t drink coffee out of plastic – bourbon or no bourbon.
