Morning Free Association: May 3

Hey guys, I stayed up late to watch the Toothy Cats beat the Sad Notes again and I was too tired to really think of or write anything. So, I will post this article about the press conference yesterday in which Jeremy Jacobs admitted they hung on to Claude for too long and how Bruce Cassidy earned it. Also, Cam said something about getting defense and wingers for the left side.

Have at it.

I’d grudgingly agree they held on to Clode too long.

It’s hard not to be loyal after he delivered a Cup, a SCF and a President’s Trophy in four years, but he probably should have gone at the end of last season.

I’m pretty sure it made the news on your side of the water the story of the massive underdogs who won the English Premier League soccer title last year – Leicester City. It probably didn’t make your news that they fired their manager (equivalent of a hockey head coach) halfway through this season!

Oof. Just woke up. Had a dream that I missed my flight home from South Korea.

I should tell you – another computer bit the dust yesterday. Really,it wasn’t more than a two minute roughing penalty, but the damn thing did a Ribiero and acted hurt, so I had to kill it.

Hi friends, it’s been a while.

I’ve been fighting off the cold of DOOM – seriously, I’m just now feeling better and I got sick two weeks ago. Thankfully, we’re in the last week of the semester. And next week, I’m headed out to the beautiful confines of Chapel Hill, NC to go get hooded (that’s a PhD hood, not a certain other kind of hood that you might associate with southerners).

I don’t know who to cheer for in these playoffs. I’ll admit that I’m partial to the Nashville PKs. I suppose.

I had to kneel for my hooding ceremony. Not because thats how its done but because I am very tall and the University Chancellor was very short

I am fortunate that I will not have that problem. I’m not short short, but 5′ 8″ isn’t exactly tall. My adviser’s a bit shorter than I am, so I might have to bend a little though.

My advisor wasn’t in attendance. The Univesity President, Chancellor, and Registrar did the hooding. Laurentian is still new at this University and PhD thing.

Also, I was the last person to walk in my ceremony (alphabetical by program) and got a huge cheer because I was graduating in the same ceremony as a bunch of students I’d taught as many as 3 times.

That’s super cool. UNC is so large that they have to have a separate hooding ceremony from the regular MA/MS/Etc graduation and the undergrad ceremony.

Good morning everyone

  • My company right now:
    comment image
  • I spilled my coffee this morning, and some of it got on my laptop & the keyboard is fried. So, usb keyboards are now my life… #ThanksTrump… that doesn’t have the same ring to it sad
  • about time the Rangers won a game against the now hated Senators. The pass Ryan (shit bag) to Pageau’s goal was something else though
  • Everything about the getty image for this article makes me laugh. Chara looks like he’s just about to drop an obscure Slavic mixtape on Soundcloud. Jacobs looks like he should be searching for the one ring to rule them all, and Neely looks like he just got done playing around of golf with his work buds from Rosenberg & Sacchs accounting. Where really, it wasn’t about golf, but drinking whisky on the rocks before noon.

    Ah, good morning.

    I was beginning to wonder whether Drumpf had had a word with Bill Gates about getting the internet switched off over there wink.

    I won’t have a word said against USB keyboards! I can’t get along with laptop keyboards and touchpad mice at all.

    There were some very pretty goals in that game. I was very pleased to see the Rags win that one. Hate is a strong word but I have a very strong dislike of the Ottawa Senators. I didn’t like them before that series…

    There was some incredible goaltending in the other game. Nashville are starting to look like the real deal (at least as far as I can tell from watching highlights!)

    I don’t mind the keyboard, it’s just not what I’m used to. Plus my laptop space is small, as I need to be mobile. I could go get it fixed by IS&T, but then I’d have to clear a bunch of stuff that’s not work related

    Nashville does look legit, and I’m loving it.
