Morning Free Association: February 24

Good morning B2Bers. I struggled all day with a food pairing & honestly, I came up dry.

I did however stumble on a long ago youtube video that I’ve seen now 10 times because it makes me laugh.

So yeah. I’m writing this an hour before the Bruins and Kings face off for their second and last meeting of the season. Boston worked their way to a 1-0 win last time. So I’ve prepared two statements about the game:

WOOO!!! 5-1 in the Cassidy era! Huge goals by [RETRACTED] and a big win by [RETRACTED]

or

UGH!!! There’s no way that the Bruins are going to make the playoffs now with such poor play from [RETRACTED] and the constant turnovers from [DEFENSE]

The Bruins are back in action on Sunday in Dallas for their third match-up of the season. Current record is 1-1.

“The more we talk about it, the more fragile I think we’ll be,” said Pacioretty.

I bet they’re feeling miserable and under a lot of pressure and like failures for thinking that by firing their coach, they’d turn things around, but I guess if the same results are happening, it’s all on the team and Price is looking pretty standard these days.

Miss Muse

In other words, I’m totally happy to talk about it.

I just had my 1st root canal appt. They found the canal. It was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be, actually kind of enjoyable all things considered, probably because of the zen master, Dr. Choi. My lips look like they’ve been injected with collagen, kinda like when Jordan got injections in that one episode of Scrubs.

I LOVE THAT EPISODE! NOW KICK YOUR HUSBAND IN THE CROTCH!

Honey, I’ll be home late tonight.

The London Bear

Ha! I had my second one yesterday (filling it in)! I almost fell asleep in the chair. Root canals bad reputations aren’t deserved!

Indeed.

The used a device to find the nerve and I thought it was similar to a voltmeter or a stud finder. Also, I thought he was making a song with it.

Bad thing, I cannot drink this weekend because I have to take ibuprofen all weekend. Boo.

The London Bear

Yes, I had the musical beeper, although he told me it was to see how deep the root went.

Drink/Ibuprofen – isn’t it an either/or? Both are effective painkillers…

the german hammer

Ah, that’s what it was.

Alcohol doesn’t prevent swelling, so, I have to do the other thing.

Yesterday I received new filing cabinets for my office. This provided a good time to tidy my space. While tiding, I found a Christmas gift from 2015. Inside I found a Starbucks gift card for $20

I found $200 one time when I cleaned my bedroom.

I once found an unexpired, uncashed paycheck while cleaning my room.

If you use direct deposit, the paychecks find you (or your bank account, anyways).

You guys are really making me want to go and clean my room…

Morning all!

I had a blind date the other night, all in all we had some interesting discussions and dinner went about as least awkward as possible so that was nice. That said, she is a veagan and that may put a damper on possibilities of a relationship of any kind other than friends. Not sure i can live day to day sans animal product, I do after all have a bacon poetry magnet set on my fridge.

In other news, nice to see Bruins “rebound” from the loss. I use “Rebound” in such a manner due to bruins not losing because of good post. Still a little annoyed that the Bruins lost to the Philadelphia Ducks of Anaheim due to an unseen offsides…but such is life in the NHL.

Anyone have any lovely weekend plans?

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin

Date the vegan.

Satan81
Admin

Yeah, if the vegan is ok with you being not-vegan, maybe you can make it work.

Good morning people!

So, the dreaded West Coast trip yielded two wins and one loss (in which we was robbed). Though the pain of that is offset a bit by the fact that we may not have deserved the LA win (in that we were outplayed for much of it).

That CZ/SK line seems to have rejuvenated Krejci. Love watching Pasta and Celery’s interplay, too.

Thought Nash had a great game in Anaheim – the first time I’ve really noticed him. Shame he then got benched, hope it doesn’t damage his confidence.

A shame our division rivals keep winning, but there’s nothing we can do about that. Que sera, sera.

I listened to The Hate Read. Enjoyed it. Found it easy to follow despite not having read the book in question, which is presumably what you were going for.

Despite GH’s warning of profanity, I thought it was rather more relaxed and civil than the average BoT episode wink

For years I thought the word ‘minutiae’ was pronounced ‘min-oo-tee-ay’. Only found out I was wrong a few months ago.

Wishing everyone a great weekend!

They really do seem to be working well together. Now we just need a new food-based nickname for Krejci that will allow us to call them “the Pasta Salad” line.

A shame our division rivals keep winning, but there’s nothing we can do about that.

Things are so tight right now for the 3rd Flortheast & 2nd WC spots that whoever can go the longest without stumbling will probably walk away with them.

Seguin used to call Krejci ‘french fries’ because of his poor pronunciation of the word ‘franchise’

Not the healthiest salad ever, I’d say.

Re: Hate Read, it’s because Geoff (Dr. Handgrenaid) isn’t there to make me yell. Also, it’s the Hate Read but we don’t hate each other, rather we like each other.

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin

True. I pretty much can’t stand my cohorts. Screw you.

Oh yeah, I better not mess with your precious ears and eyes to tell you what you can do to yourself, buddy. I magine what I would normally say and double it!

Happy Friday Everyone

-Oh God. I forgot that video existed.
-I ain’t working tomorrow. Nope.
-It’ll be nice to have a real weekend again.
-Maybe skiing tomorrow? Maybe skiing alone? Is that sad?
-Nice to see we got a win. Sadly, I saw none of it.
-I got a momentary check engine light today and a brief diagnostic message indicating “Multiple issues detected” when I was driving to work (my car, not the new one). I now cannot find any evidence there was a problem. So much for technology making things easier.
-I need to stop writing this and go to a meeting.

Woo-hoo! 2 points!

Damnit! Toronto & Isles also got points and each has the game-in-hand tiebreaker. Now we have to worry about the $%$^^ Islanders, too.

Yeah, where the hell did the Islanders come from?

Possibly elsewhere in the future.
