Coach Taylor Lives!

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

I don’t know if BW would have asked for this as a bday gift, but I’ll happily take it on his behalf Friday Night Lights renewed for TWO SEASONS! OMG!   Gawd be praised!  I think that what they’re doing with the British-style shorter seasons is smart.  With FNL it’s always been about quality, not […]

Slap me silly, Sidney!

Monday, March 30th, 2009

Cripes. Work and stuff are driving me insane today.  But better late than never, I guess. I’d been trying to get tickets the 3/28 Pens game by hook or by crook for what seems like forever.  Finally on Thursday night BW and I found some on Craigslist.  Not the best seats, but a decent price.  […]

Spring. It has a flavor.

Would the seasons even change if it were not for the power of this Holy Trinity?  I think not. Blessed be the Mini Eggs, the Peeps, and the Thin Mints, forever and ever.  E-men.

I deserve 40 lashes with a wire hanger!

I forgot that yesterday was Ms. Crawford’s birthday!  Then I turned on TCM and they were having a Crawford-a-thon.  I finally got to see Autumn Leaves, a movie I’d read a lot about but is not available on DVD. Anyway, I will scrub some floors for penance.  And I’ll offer this for your viewing pleasure. […]

Go with God, my friend.

It dawned on me that I never told y’all the story of what went down last weekend when we parted with Woodrow, the PT Cruiser.  Get yer hankies ready. We had an appointment at the notary’s office at 4:30 on 3/13 to meet with the buyer and conclude the sale.  We spent the hour or […]

Happy Friday…

Drive-by Icing

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

Today’s Drive-By Hotting (Hockey Edition) is a tribute to a boy who just does NOT get enough love from the legit sports media, so we’re gonna give him some ourselves:  Mr. #11, Jordan Staal! Jordan is, in this mostly ignorant hockey semi-fan’s opinion: Hawt!  In that delicious SS Trooper way that I dig so much. […]

Our feature presentation, starring….

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

The new car is here.  And now the exciting (?) moment that everybody (?) has been waiting for, the unveiling and revealing of the name! To recap, our new car is Veddy British Classy Handsome as all get-out Designed to be a companion to Vivien, that hot motorcycle minx So really, could there have been […]

Oy gevalt!

Monday, March 16th, 2009

Obviously, we are home. Got in late Thursday, and what a whirlwind since then.  Collecting checks, buying cars, selling cars, trying to unpack.  Chaos.  We didn’t get to sit until Sunday when Tim the Enchanter, Donna the Nicknameless, and BabyGeek hosted a lovely brunch.  Thank you, guys. So the vacation was great.  We accomplished exactly […]

And now a Tropical Update

Just a little further clarification from our man in the field. 

This just in

Checking in from vacation for one second after the Pens/Capitals game with a brief message to all of the Crosby hatas out there in the world (Don Cherry, y’all listening?): SUCK ON IT, BEEEEYOTCHES!!!!!!!!!!! Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa! 

Quelle the fuck?!

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

A little something else to amuse you while I’m on vacay. You know, when I was scouring teh interwebs for pictures of Crosby to use in the Groin Watch posts I noticed that there are an awful lot of rather ‘slashy’ pics of Sid and Marc-Andre together.  Quite, quite a few.   Hence, my recent […]

Groin Watch 2009: Goal!

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Our efforts have paid off, Crosby back in the game tonight!

Lovely parting gifts

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Have a few fangirly fun things to pass along today before I leave y’all for a week. The first is just a good ol’ Drive-By Hotting of RIGGINS!! TIMMY RIGGINSSSSSSSSSS!! FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS 4EVA!!!

Beach Reading

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

Why is it that you’re only supposed to read stupid/trashy books on the beach?  Why doesn’t anybody go to the beach to read Sartre?  But on the other hand, why argue with long-established tradition?  So for the past few months I’ve been checking through Half Priced Books and such and gathering up “light”/cheesy reading material […]

Groin Watch 2009: Fail!

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Still no Crosby tonight. I think you people out there aren’t pulling your weight in thinking happy thoughts about Sidney’s groinal area.  Me and Marc-Andre can’t do it all by ourselves, c’mon! Need inspiration?  Here, take this quote from El Sid himself and place it entirely out of context:  “It’s the same story — you […]

Countdown to vacation

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

I feel like I have been looking forward to this trip for ever, but finally as of this Friday afternoon, BW and I will be here! Yes, yes.  I can hear the Greek Chorus now, “But! But! You like cold, damp places! You have a pathological aversion to sunlight! You can’t even swim, ye daft […]
