Morning Free Association: The New Season is Here!

Embed from Getty Images

I hope you all had a restful night’s sleep, with visions of Pastatricks dancing through your head.

The new hockey season is here for the Boston Bruins.

Yesterday, David Krejci joined the group for practice in a regular sweater and joined rushes as the number two center that he is.

Bruce Cassidy wants to see how Krejci feels during morning skate today before deciding if he’ll be in the lineup tonight. If Krejci is in, Par Lindholm will likely play over Brett Ritchie since Lindholm is more of a penalty killer. If Krejci is out, look for both Lindholm and Ritchie to be in.

John Moore was placed on Long-Term Injured Reserve (LTIR) allowing the Bruins to recall Karson Kuhlman and Connor Clifton. Kuhlman, Clifton, and Urho Vaakanainen, who had been previously brought back to Boston, were all on the ice in the morning as their assignments to Providence were all paper transactions.

Since the team is starting on the road for the first four games, carrying 7D is important; injuries don’t care if it’s the start of the season and can happen at any time.

Count Sean Kuraly in for having a good mindset to start the season. He’s only focused on Dallas.

The game is on NESN tonight at 8:30pm. We’ll have a game thread in time for game start. See you then!

Totally off topic, but work is thinking about getting me a laptop. I don’t know whether to enjoy some free gear or be afraid that I can take work home with me.

Never take your company laptop home!!!!! Never!!!!! Unless the hours spent online are billable…..then, by all means, take that sucker home!!!!!!

Talked to my boss about it today. If I open that laptop at home, I am paid for it, and the expectation would be I would bring it home one night a week, or if bad weather is expected. She mainly wants me to have one because she feels like I deserve it and it would make working throughout the building easier.

Sounds like I am getting a laptop.

I take mine home. Sometimes if I’m bored in the evening I can make a start on tomorrow’s work and give myself an easier day!

Good morning, friends! It’s been a long, long while.

A student was supposed to come to my office hours this morning, but is either very late or won’t be showing up, so I thought I’d poke my head in.

Hooray for new beginnings!

And how many fans could Agincourt hold for hockey vs basketball?

We have a semi-pro team called the Rhinos. Apparently they’re pretty good! I need to go check them out during their season.

Sippi is her adorable self. She decided that she wanted to be a teddy bear last night, and she let me hold her throughout the night. And when I woke up, she had her head on top of mine. She’s the sweetest.

See, Agincourt is one thing, but Hastings is the real interesting question. That’s some real original six stuff right there.

When i go up north to work, i get lunch at the deli in Readsboro, VT (2 1/2 miles). Monday they had a boiled dinner with legit corned beef. I bought one to use for breakfast this week….. just heat and add eggs! So yummy!!! Eating second breakkie now!!!!

That sounds good.

I had a corned beef sandwich in NY and it was nothing like what we call corned beef over here. Ours comes in a tin and is a mashed up lump you cut slices off. Tastes better than it sounds but it’s not as good as your version!

I’m experimenting with eating very small lunches in my latest attempt to shrink the belly. Today I’ve got two carrots. It seems to be working and isn’t too hard to cope with, although I’ve been allowing myself bigger breakfasts to help cope!

Last time I tried to slim down, I think the biggest helper was spending a few minutes on my nordic-trac (x-country ski simulator machine) every evening. I found another one by the side of the road a few months ago and I’m trying it again.
I could probably fit a treadmill in that spot of the basement, but what I’ve got worked for me last time.
Plus: free exercise machine.

Ooo, that sounds good! I made some pretty damn good scrambled eggs on Sunday with spinach and blue cheese.

Eggs are something I usually don’t think about or buy. Was given a carton of fresh local eggs so I decided to make a breakfast.

And it’s the only carton I will ever get from these people because the next day a weasel killed their chickens.

Vegetarians? So that’s what food eats!comment image

I’ve been leaning toward more vegetarian options in my diet for heath reasons, but eggs aren’t going away anytime soon. They’re supposed to be good for HDL cholesterol and fairly neutral for LDL, & good for proteins.
