Morning Free Association: November 16

With the Bruins on an extended trip through the midwest, one has to wonder what things the boys are up to. We know they were in Colorado on Sunday and presumably stayed there for a bit so that Brando Carlrissian could hang out with his best friend and their mutual mentor.

But what else are they doing?

Do you think they’re having one of those team retreats in the Rockies? Is it too early for skiing?

Maybe the team is on the ice for other fun activities like curling in its various forms.

I’d like to think they took a bus trip up through the Black Hills to marvel at Mt. Rushmore.

They could have stopped in Nebraska, if there were something to do there.

By now they’re surely in Minnesota, resting and practicing for a rematch with the Mild Wild. David Backes is telling them about all the fascinating things to do there. Nah, he’s probably just talking about tractors.

So exciting this roadtrip.

Obviously, we have one more day until Bruins hockey and not much is happening.

Just won a bet with my supervisor on whether or not engineering would finish upgrading a printer by 10:00 am. Hello 4 pack of delicious $14 beer! (comes in 500ml bottles though, hello 2 beers per bottle!)

In England a 500ml bottle is greeted with the response: “Oi, this isn’t even a pint!” grin

Good morning, friends.

I’m reading NOS4A2 by Joe Hill right now, and it might be the most terrifying book that I’ve ever read. And if not terrifying, it’s disturbing. But it’s so good. Just so good. I’m hoping to finish it today.

And since there’s no hockey game until tomorrow, I guess that’s what I’ll be doing after I get done teaching today.

OH! And sweet Sippi, our dog that we found on the side of the highway in Mississippi, is finally done with her heartworm treatment. I’ve been able to take her for walks in the morning, and her personality is finally starting to reemerge. It’s great. grin

Was there a big temperature change or just feeling homesick?

It actually wasn’t that cold. Though I was gone for four days, it felt much longer. Never in my life have I felt more culturally out of place. I also didn’t have much coffee.

Good morning friends!

  • Went to bed at 7:50 last night, slept like absolute crap. Much tired, Many sleeps. Wow.
  • I’ve had two head crashes at work today already. This is not good, I cannot trust my printer anymore or a particular coworker who left an entire assembly loose. Jerk
  • I’m starting to miss hockey again. Soon
  • I thought I had more. Guess not.

    Morning all. Had a dream last night I was in some sort of old timey James Stewart type movie. We were on a cruise ship. Pedro Martinez was there at one point.

    morning all, no hockey makes me sad….i hope they come out with the same effort they were playing with while winning.

    Saw Dr. Strange last night, good movie…it didn’t seem as focused as some of the others but it was still very enjoyable.

    In other news…getting tired of looking for a house…bleh.

    Morning, pals!

  • VA, I commend your excellent morning skate.
  • Traffic is terrible. Dentist this morning.
  • I think I’m gonna hit yoga tonight, first time for everything. Turkey chili for lunch though, and yoga makes you fart, not good. Heh heh.
  • It’ll be super great when we can watch a hockey game again.
  • No coffee yet. Post-dentist.

    Traffic = Dentist

    I really need to try yoga. That flexibility thing – I need more of it!

    Watch hockey – I vaguely remember that.

    All bourbon should be post dentist, as well – unless you know the drugs the dentist will administer mix well with booze.

    I haven’t tried yoga yet, I figure it’s worth a shot. I need peace and bending in my life.

    Unless it’s something like this:
    Someone else: “You wanna go to yoga with me?”
    You: “Namaste here & watch some hockey!”

    Good Morning All!

    Does anybody understand the scoring in fantasy hockey? It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.

    Double header tonight.

    Coffee and you know!

    There are a bunch of categories, like goals, assists, PIMs, etc. If you get more than your opponent in that category (or have a lower SV%), then you get 2 points. If you tie in that category, you get 1 point. The player with the most points wins that matchup, but then I guess we throw out wins and losses and the standings are based purely on points.

    Yeah, I get all that. Sometimes I look at the score and look at the stats, then say WTF? Not just when losing, mind you. Sometimes I win and say “WTF?” Oh well, I don’t want to spend the energy to know this stuff intimately. I’ll just use the Force!

    YOURE IN BIG TROUBLE MUSE!!! My team had a great bond-building-chemistry-something-grit-filled trip to disneyland. My captain gave a great speech this morning to the team and you can see the ice in their veins and fire in their bellies. Its only November but its B2B cup or bust!

    anyway you want to trade a goalie? We uave horrible chemistry and a shitty captain. I think I need to shake things up….
