Morning Free Association, August 23

A conversation in the Hammer-Widenberg home:

GH: Do you have anything for the MFA?

IW: No. Do you?

GH: Not really.

(Some minutes pass.)

GH: Oooh, I got it.

(Many more minutes pass.)

GH: You know how the Vegas team is still coming up with a name?

IW: Uh-huh.

GH: And you know how there’s one that they want as a backup but they really don’t want it as a primary name?

IW: I know where you’re going with this…and I know what picture you’re using!

(GH turns laptop around to reveal what she’s been working on.)

Nighthawks Jersey

IW: I thought about putting that in an MFA last week but you did that one that day, so I didn’t bother. But, I wasn’t going to put it on a t-shirt.

GH: We win the being-married-for-a-long-time prize. (High fives!)

Yes, there are times when we know exactly what the other person is doing, even communicating it without using any real words to give it away. Yet, we’re still bad at Taboo and Charades. What gives?

Anyway, the new Vegas team hasn’t made up their collective mind yet about a name. All sorts of people are working at it. They probably won’t pick that name and definitely not that jersey. Sigh.

A girl can dream, can’t she?

Breakfast this morning – Half a honeydew melon filled with blueberries from the backyard!

Good morning, friends!

First day of class went swimmingly. Seems like I’ve got a good group. Time will tell, but they laughed at my jokes, so we’re off to a good start.

They find my fascination with hockey odd. But they WILL KNOW the divine nature of Saint Patrice.

Remind them that there are more pro hockey teams in Texas than any other state!

I love the sound of pedal steel and lap steel guitars

I’m coming around to that sound. It’s been growing on me.

Let me help you.

This one mentions NC!

Excellent. I think my problem was that the first few times I heard that sound it was in the context of early-90s mainstream country music. That’s all my father listened to at the time. It was brutal.

Here’s hoping the cubs on D will mature very quickly this year.

Morning all. The mission today is to get through work so I can go home and take a nap. I need time off from my time off.

Good Morning All! I love the name and shirt for Lost Wages!

Disc golf for the first time in two weeks last night… i sucked. Still good times with my kid.

Can you guess where i’d like to be?

Single game tonight.

Hey Tallest, you weren’t trying to impress a lady in Pensburg, were you?

Coffee, no bourbon…. seltzer on tap.

Morning.

  • Happy Jonathan Sigalet days until hockey season. Who’s Sigalet? Drafted in the 4th round of the 2005 draft, he played one game as a Bruin, no points -2 and 4 PIM. Riveting
  • You two are so cute, and the NHL would be insane not to use that jersey for Vegas.
  • I started writing this comment at 7:30, but then had a white ink explosion and now here I am an hour later. Shit
  • Water doesn’t suck. It really doesn’t suck. Gatorade is not better.

    Morning B2B.

    Hockey season is underway here in Europe! I’m wearing my Slovan Bratislava t-shirt to celebrate, though they have a tough game in the KHL: this afternoon. Briefly-a-Bruin Andrej Meszaros is captain.

    I’ve been trying to find out whether the World Cup will be shown on TV in the UK with no success. Ideally it would be on NHL.tv but not much chance of that.
