Morning Free Association, August 24

Sigh.

After feeling so creative and victorious with the previous MFA, I’m phoning this one in.

The Bruins are super boring right now. Nothing to see there. Unless you want to see Joe Morrow’s tractor or something.

What I will say is this: I hate watching the Minnesota Wild with every fiber of my being after hate-watching that miserable series between them and the Stars. However, the Wild did the totally right thing by choosing a Prince song for their goal song:

I think it was the perfect choice.

Very earnest with the camping offer. We’ll be on the river most of the day, around the campfire at night. Do your own thing or we can even get you on the river, if you like. The site holds 25 peeps and so far it’s just Jo and I. We only booked it because there weren’t many campsites available in the area and I waited too long to book. We could have camped with a friend, but it’s a little crowded there.
There is a great disc golf course nearby, Tallest….. if you’ve recovered from that fall between the buildings!

„Da haben wir in der Nationalmannschaft eine Qualität wie noch nie“, meint Christian Ehrhoff.

Nationalmannscaft? I think Medievalist could have fun with that word

Our receptionist must do a way better job screening phone calls. I received three calls from salesmen which have nothing to do with my area. I’m very grouchy today.

Good morning, friends!

Had a nice Pokewalk with the girls this morning. Didn’t catch anything new, but I did hatch a 5k egg. And guess what came out? A damn Mankey. Ugh.

Talking Christopher Columbus and the Spanish colonization of the Americas today. Whee!

And the best: The wife and I are going to see Explosions in the Sky tonight. I’m so excited!

I’m so accustomed to seeing Spanish Inquisition thanks to Imgur and got really confused

And certainly nobody expects that the Spanish Inquisition came to the Americas and did their nasty business here, too! wink

Morning all. Came home yesterday to a tree that fell on my stairs. Luckily there was no damage but getting up the stairs was a bit tricky.

Was the tree drunk? Did it fall up the stairs or down the stairs?

Tree has one hell of a hangover.

Good Morning All!

My single game turned into a double for the second week in a row as one of the guys with the double doesn’t like to stay late. He has a real job. Whoopee!

Double tonight, as scheduled.

I was able to use one of my favorite lines last night. Penalty called on white. “I don’t know about that one, Ref” from the white bench. Me: “That’s why I’m here, I DO know.”

I’d really like to be back on the river right now.

Jo-Ann and I have the group site at DAR State Forest all to ourselves for Labor Day weekend. B2Bers are welcome if they are interested in Labor Day in the Berkshires. The group site accommodates up to 25 people!

We really need some hockey to talk about.

Labor Day already?!? I’ve barely settled into summer!

Buongiorno!

  • Agree on all accounts with the Wild & their goal song. They are boring to watch
  • I am liking the “bear tracks” thing the Bruins are doing. Fun way to break up the summer monotony, plus the little insight into the players
  • Seven players have worn the number 49 in Bruins history, the most recent being Stanley Cup Champion Raptor Jesus. So have a heavenly Raptor Jesus day
  • Golden View Softball’s season came to a conclusion last night with a very close 17-13 playoff loss. The game however is surrounded in controversy, as league rules require that in order to play in a playoff game you must have played 10 regular season games. The opponent only had 6 people on the roster yesterday that fit that requirement. We shouldn’t have lost, it should have been an automatic win. Oh well, at least we won’t be slaughtered by Misfits tomorrow now.
  • I’m taking a page out of Stripes book today by being long winded, but doin’ it bullet point style
  • There is a very odd & slightly sexual photo of Woody riding Nemo cowboy style sitting in the trash can next to me. I have many questions as to why the shit was that ever even created.
  • My second cup of coffee and water on tap today.

    Why indeed? grin

    I ran out of cola, so it was bourbon with Mighty Malt for me, which was … different

    Skip the Mighty Malt and you have a great drink there.

    You’re not wrong but hey, you’ve got to try these things.

    It was a really humid evening – even the spiders were sweating

    If I can find Mighty Malt, I’ll give it a try. Did you drink it car bomb style?

    Car bomb style? I’m intrigued! Had it with loads of ice, but cola definitely preferably to MM smile
