Morning Free Association, May 20

Hey, everyone! Canada dropped quota on Sverige yesterday, 6-0 in the World Hockey Championship quarterfinals. Our own Nose Face Killah, Rad Brad Marchand got a goal and a roughing penalty. Oh, you!

Frank Vatrano and Team USA edged out Pasta and Česko 2-1 in a shootout. Auston Matthews scored the lone regulation goal for Team USA (Frankie with an assist) and scored the lone goal in the shootout. Cam Talbot stopped all three Czech chances in the shoot out to earn the win. It’ll be Frankie vs. Rad Brad in the semifinals on Saturday at 1:15PM ET.

In other WHC action, Suomi smoked Danmark 5-1 and Rossija overcame a slow start to beat Sturmface’s Deutschland team 4-1. Suomi and Rossija face each other at 9:15AM ET on Saturday.

Oh and the Sharks beat the Blues 3-0 last night. We’ll have a recap of that coming up later today.

What’s on tap?

Must have been the phase of the moon, but all kinds of douchebaggery in last night’s game. I love that shit. Had plenty of fun fucking with people. This conversation happened:
Me “7 blue, minor slash”
7 blue “Aw, come on!”
Me “No, I don’t want to go anywhere with you.”

Blah I was up captioning till 3. Great movie but holy shit my alarm is scheduled to go off at 530 and I have no fucking clue how I managed to make it to work on time today.

ALL THE COFFEE is on tap today.

Good morning everyone.

5 hours until my vacation starts. I’ve just gotta keep on reminding that it’ll be over for a week at 3:30. That being said I’m very rage-y today thanks to some absolute bull shit regarding the printer I’m on and some unnecessary sarcasm from my old supervisor. I responded to his jack-ass filled sarcasm e-mail with an image of the letter “K” that was 1000×1000 pixels in size. He hasn’t talked to me yet this morning. On the plus side of life though, Em & I are going hiking in the Franconia Notch on Wednesday which should be a ton of fun. On tap today is coffee, water and the mental fortitude to not snap and punch people in the face.

Good Morning

Sitting on the production floor today monitoring some test builds. How exciting.

Lots of work to do this weekend. I’m going to be so happy once the dust finally settles and I can just relax.

Heh. I mean. It’s a nice change of scenery, it’s just a lot harder to work out here.

That’s such a contrast from here. To do anything in the engineering sections is just about impossible because of how little the engineering techs care about their work environment.

Wait a minute… Sturmface is coach of the German team? The same one that beat the US for the first time in forever?

Try some livestock. I heard it’s therapeutic.

It’s Tim Approved! Can’t wait till I have to the office to myself this afternoon. Plan on doing fuck-all.

I’m taking a personal day, I mean I’m sick. I have lots of PTO and lots of things on my mind. This is the recipe for a sudden day off.

This was an eventful week for me. I decided to go back to school starting in August to get a degree in broadcasting and production technology. Going back has been on my mind for a year, but my love for podcasting and recent personal developments gave me the push to finally do it. Knowing I won’t be in the benefits or HR fields forever is so freeing.

But on a much more tragic note, my dog (well, my dog until I left home because no one will let a 20 something year old AND a 125 pound German Shepherd rent their downtown apartments) was put down. Over the course of several months, he became more and more violent. It had to be done, but we had him sense he was a 7 weeks old.

This weekend I’m medicating and rewarding myself with hockey, bass, live music and Thai food. I decided I wanted to start the weekend a day early.

Sorry you lost an old friend. Sounds like you have excellent therapy lined up. Peace.

I’m really sorry to hear that. That’s never easy. I still miss my dog and it’s been 2.5 years.

(I also now want Thai food)

I love Thai food.

Congrats on going back to school!
Sorry to hear about your little guy. I think your weekend plans all great ideas.

I really thought about taking a sick day today to make a 3-day weekend so I could get a lot done. Good on you.

Good morning peeps, what’s happening?

BULLET POINTS:

  • Coffee on tap.
  • Somerville rink added a public skate to today, so I didn’t take the day off like I planned, because I can go at lunch. This si good because I can accomplish things here AND get some skating in.
  • Hopefully these dumb skating skills come back because I am goddamn pathetic right now. 14 public skates before hockey starts, I think.
  • I can potentially get eight hours of skating in next weekend. Hopefully I can make it work. If I can stop without getting killed, then I’ll consider that a huge victory. I miss being a skilled skater. What the fuck happened?
  • I got to talk to my work crush yesterday. Hopefully more today. Hopefully I can muster up the courage to make something happen. Before anyone gives me unsolicited advice (which I always loathe), our paths don’t cross enough work-wise for it to hurt anything.

  • On tap tonight: Nothing! On tap tomorrow: Nothing (except the gym)! On tap Sunday: skating! Yaaaaay!
  • My granola bar was underwhelming.
  • But my coffee was so good that it’s gone already! Oops!
  • I think I’m still hung over from the Braai.

    Just keep skating. That muscle memory is there somewhere. Can muscles get senile?

    Now that I know you loathe it I’m going to have to make sure to give unsolicited advice every chance I get!

    I should go skating soon. I’m not that great but it is very fun just to zip around on the ice
