The paper I thought I understood came back today. Ack. Here goes my overall GPA. I can only imagine what kind of grade I'll get back on the other paper - the one I was clueless on.
I know how to solve the woes of my afternoon, I'll just go celebrate Christine's birthday with her. Look out Morris' here we come.

So Richard Paul made 14th round, overall 148th pick in the QSMHL for Sherbrooke. Jeff Zehr's name was also on there, coming in on round 3, overall 30th pick for Sorei-Tracy. There are a few other names I recognize from the ECHL on that list as well, such as T.J. Reynolds (God I love hearing people heckle him), and Missy's favorite - Jason Spence comes in at #75.

First and foremost, Happy Birthday Paulie! I hope you are enjoying a drunken stupor in celebration. At least for the next month I can feel a little better about drooling over a youngin'. Let's do some high-level math here folks, I'm only 5 years older at the present! *laugh*
This morning it took me 20 minutes to get to work. They've closed Luther Road where it joins up with Elton. No big whoop, I figure I'll go up Cherry, hit the Sheetz and grab a cappuchino. Bzzt, wrong. They've also got Cherry closed for blacktopping. So I backtracked and went up Eisenhower. Of course there are orange signs everywhere up there too. At least I got here by 8. I just hope it's a viable reason to call off down the road "I can't find an open road between here, and there."

I also found a great book in Barnes and Noble, but opted to come back and order it online so I could save some bucks on it. It's called "The Physics of Hockey", by Alain Hache, and it appears to perfectly meld my adoration for hockey with the geek math loving nature I have within. Mmm, thermodynamics, molecular physics, trajectories, drag, friction, fluid dynamics and more... I can't wait to dig into this one.
I guess I always looked at playing pool to be so physics oriented, but didn't really think about anything beyond that and how the understanding of physics could help your game. Maybe I'll get some tips I can share with the guys this year *wink wink*
Softball again today, cross your fingers for us, we REALLY could use a win or two that doesn't come from a forfit.
Less than a week til the next vacation trip!

Get the details here.
The article also mentions Bates becoming a free agent in July. Yet another detail I'm waiting to see some news on. Again, no ill-wishes towards your career deary, but Johnstown would welcome you *grin*
It's true it's true! There is finally a sign for Bed, Bath, & Beyond at the old Richland Mall plaza. Heaven! Naturally, the average Johnstown shopper will not appreciate this store, so I intend to get my fill quickly - before it's closed.
On another note: Bertuzzi was charged w/ assault on Moore. It's not exactly the type of hockey news I was hoping for, but at least it's hockey news.
And just something that makes me smile... Cheney said the F word! Go Cheney! :)
Maybe I should hit happy hour or something tonight - is there a chance of one of the work hotties being there?

Yes, Type O is on my constant rotation, we all know what that means.

So, I propose to the people of my building here at work: stop being so damn happy and lovey and whatnot.
I will now step back off of my soapbox and work on my Web Guidelines again. *blah*
"Not long ago, but far away. A rainy witch's day. -Type O Negative"
Well today when both dogs went running to the same corner of the yard I figured it was time to take the shovel and go look. Seems something killed off a possum in the backyard. I was rather impressed that neither dog had gutted it, like they do with rabbits, but was still disturbed enough that I needed to scoop the thing up in the shovel and toss it over the fence.
This possum looked like a HUGE NYC sewer rat. I like rats, hell, I've had them as pets, but the look of this thing actually made me cringe.
I guess I should count my blessings. I have seen raccoons walking outside of the fence. I fear what a mess there would be if my dogs encountered a raccoon inside the fence. *now where's that emergency vet number?*
At least the week is half over.

Mid-discussion I realized how disgustingly well I was matching. *shiver*

I did consume a good number of the Twisted and Mike's Hard beverages, but hey - they were free. And, I think I've finally confirmed the headache I developed later that night is most definitely not a hang-over, as I still have it. Stupid sinuses. I guess that's the one curse of the weather changing for the better, no?
Also this weekend: Got mom hooked up with an alarm system which is to be installed this week. We'll see how stupid the punks are.
Finally, caught "Day After Tomorrow". Quite the disappointment with way too many contrived things going on. Blah. The wolves were a step back in the world of CG. Try harder next time.

Now to my next tirade. Mom's house was broken into for the third time in just under two years. Not that I think for a second the punks that are doing this would be reading my blog - but I'd love to take that crowbar you used to destroy her downstairs windows and pound you upside the head with it.
How these little morons keep pulling this off (night before last breaking into both my mother's and her neighbors house) is amazing to me. Maybe if your parents didn't leave your punk asses sitting on the front porch til all hours of the night while they're at work and spent some time raising you things would be different. Idiots. I'd love to get my hands on them.

You know you have good friends when you have to point out to them that their fantasies should NOT be based upon good things happening for you. When you point this out to them, if they then alter their stated fantasy to be something to benefit them with the added perk that will somehow work you into good stuff as well: Yes, you have good friends. Crazy mayhaps, but good.
Although, who can argue with someone who has DECIDED that you're going to meet Bates and fall for one another. *shrug* When you instead meet that guy that is good friends with him and hook yourself up... yes dear, by all means - CALL ME! :)
"Everywhere I look I see your face. -Stabbing Westward"
Looks like I need to be the writing fool this week. Both classes have writing assignments for this week *ack* Hopefully I can get something started early. If I can start the paper I can crank it out, it's those first couple sentances that kill me. Ok, back to my super-strong chocolate-raspberry coffee.

Spent yesterday afternoon/evening at Jerry's for the poker run to benefit JoAnne. It was an okay day - pretty busy around me. Somedays it's nice to people watch. I do at least feel like I accomplished something this weekend in finishing up the flower beds out front. Of course, I highly doubt that the things I planted will grow (how telltale of life itself, no?) - we'll see.
Nothing too exciting this weekend. Just a lot of nothing I guess. It's funny how fast the weekend goes despite the individual minutes seeming to drag on.

It's been a rather pissy couple of days, not sure why I'm so moody. Mayhaps the b.c. patch and I aren't getting along, mayhaps it's just a random slew of irritants.
Another few points of interest (for those so inclined to become more knowledgable to my little world):
The big D should be final sometime soon. I think we're to the final stretch now, odd being that the proceedings have taken longer start to finish than it took for the M to become a joke.
My copy of Miracle finally arrived, suitable to help tie me over. (Psst... 134 days.)
Still trying to find top soil to finalize my garden areas. Maybe I'll get _A_ tomato out of this.

Sadly, Calgary lost last evening, but I hear that Tampa Bay winning may lead the cup to visit us at some point. We'll see I guess.
Regardless, missed the fan club meeting to be here, bummed me out to do so - so I guess I'll go sooth myself in the 80+ degree weather by one of the 5 pools here at this hotel. *smile*

Disappointing thing is sitting with the gals, gawking at the guys on the other team, and then walking up to catch and realizing they're all 5'6" or less *eww*. But, they were nice guys... to the point that one brought me a beer. If you're given a beer from a stranger and they didn't bring any for anyone else, you feel obligated. Too bad it was coors light *blech*.

That's okay Lightning... we've been bouncing back and forth, who's turn is it to hand out an ass-whipping?
Had a good evening last night, visiting with old friends and sipping home-made margarita. (mmmm) I'm sorry, but this excerpt of one of our conversations has to be shared, I think it will suffice as a replacement for song lyrics, since I'm not listening to music at the moment.

And, for one of my favorite (not so) little blog visitors... it's not your place to make calls to look into things for other people. Matter of fact we have nothing in common, except the sloppy seconds of mine which you can have. Mind your own business. And if you don't have anything to keep you busy, get a job.
Lawyer called today, papers are waiting for me to sign. Don't know how long it takes after the final signature to say it's finished finished. Regardless of my overall feelings on the situation it still remains a stressful thing.
Finally, my review is today! Just keep in mind any percentage of zero is still zero :) Just kidding.

Hopefully the list of things that need attention will drop off soon. Must start saving some more cash.
