Miscwhy we love hockey.

One of the more awesome things ever.

I can’t really describe it, but it’s like…the word “class” comes to mind.

Okay, so I’m reading about the Johnson and Johnson heiress passing away – this in and of itself is a sad, somber moment. So how does the world find out about this?

A Twitter post from Tila Tequila. “Pray 4 my Wifey”? Really? This is how you tell people about a tragedy in your life. I know there’s a twitter character limit, but you can break this up into two posts. I suppose I should be thankful there wasn’t a LOL in there. While I can’t exactly blame Twitter for the fall of Western Civilization ™, shit like this doesn’t exactly fill me with hope. I mean, I spent a lot of time with my education. Maybe I’m aging, or maybe I just feel like some things should be treated with a little more gravitas than a twit on what you had for lunch.

Fine, I’m old.

MiscHockey time!

So yes, we’re looking at a few things in Hockey World this week. Sweden
and Slovakia announced their olympic hockey teams, and I have to say
I’m a little surprised – Sweden went with Forsberg on the squad, which
may be a bit of an emotional choice. Admittedly, he’s one of the best
ever when he’s healthy, but the rub is he hasn’t been fully healthy for
years. I think the powers that be are banking on Foppa at 75% and
playing for pride. Admittedly, he’s going to be playing with a metric
ton of talent, which may be enough to get him another medal. Maybe.
They still have to go through Canada and Team USA. I can see Sweden
taking silver.
Meanwhile, Slovakia’s a little odder. I’m not sure what they did, but
the skipped over Marek Svatos for some “I never even heard of these
guys” players from the KHL, no current pro team, and just…what the
hell. Admittedly, Svatty’s not having the best year, but I’m thinking
Team Slovakia made an oops here.

And now I gaze into the crystal ball…
Gold: Canada. Home ice in the worlds’ biggest ice rink is not an easy thing to overcome.
Silver: USA / Sweden – Tough to choose here.
Bronze: Sweden / USA – Still tough.
4th: Russia
5th: Slovakia.

MiscHolidays, survived.

So it’s a bit of a slow day. Linus Torvalds’ birthday, and I’m working on a few other things today. Still, running through a bit of holiday madness. Christmas haul…good. Apparently I have a bit of “Must open NOW” when it comes to the awesome presents.  Awesome Presents were Awesome.

And, to make life even better, I’m going to the football game next Sunday.

MiscLong time, no blog

Wow. It’s officially been a while since I hit this board up with
anything meaningful. A quick check of the sports shows that Denver’s
getting no respect in some places. (Yes, I’m looking at you Muir.)

Meanwhile, Slashdot went over the 100,000 story mark. Not sure how many
of those are dupes, but we’ll let them enjoy the moment.

And…yeah. Shopping. Gods help me, I’m getting ready to shop for the
Unshoppable Wonder Wife. I seriously wonder how I’ve managed it in the

Okay, so…school keeps taking time away. Massively annoying, yes.

Football – pleasant surprise.
Hockey – pleasant surprise.
Work – Possible pleasant surprise.
School – slow start, but getting better.
Meanwhile, the rest of the universe could easily be described as cheerful.

So now, intensely late at night and early in the morning, and I’m still up and about, looking at the world and going “Why am I not in bed?”

Blame school. It’s annoying, but I get myself all worked up about things, and then when I get my scores back, it’s an A or a B. I really hate that I panic, but then I’m not sure if the panicking is a bad thing. Maybe it’s just late enough that I’m spinning this to a positive thing that I know it’s not.

MiscHow I spent my summer vacation

There was an insane amount of driving for one.

And there was camping. Camped out at the base of Devils’ Tower, and again at West Yellowstone. We decided on a hotel when we were in Montana. However, it was a decent enough time, and I may want to do it again someday. Except without the freezing cold at night.

School progresses, and I have new classes to panic about. I know I shouldn’t, because my last classes both ended with A’s. But I do because I’m odd like that.

MiscGood heavens.

I start going to school and then I completely forget how to blog.

MiscSo yes.

First day of school. Might not be too bad, and I think I’m going to have to add a new category.  But yes, things are starting to come together.
