That time again

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

I’m off for a few days to State College, PA for my semi-annual Meeting of The Library Bitches.  Let the whingeing begin!!    This one promises to be an special “IN THIS ECONOMY!” edition what with endless crying, hang-wringing, and rending of garments all accompanied by extra-loud pissing and moaning about “ouuuuuuur budgeetttttttttttt wass cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuttttt!” […]

One more thing

Friday, June 26th, 2009

that hit me today… No matter if you were a pretentious snob, a metal-head, a punk, or whatever other stupid reason you may claim for not being an MJ fan in the 80′s…or if you are a kid who is too young to have known the glory years of Michael and only knew him as […]

The 80′s are dead

Friday, June 26th, 2009

I am stunned.  I don’t know why I’m stunned, because we all knew that MJ was going to come to a bad end sooner rather than later, btu I am stunned anyway. Maybe because Michael was so much larger than life, he didn’t really seem mortal. I know that most people would be ashamed to […]

Through a Scanner Darkly

I feel very badly for not posting about this until now, but between the life-eating hockey and how busy things have been at work, I just couldn’t get around to it. Way back on May 30, I escorted Cousin R to get her first tattoo!  Things turned out well in the end, but we had […]

OMG, SeanBaby in medieval garb! Wouldn’t it be nice if Rusty and SeanBaby could appear in the same medieval movie together?  Alas, it is not to be.

I think I’m going to take a bit of a blogging vacation, to rest, and so that we can all just bask in the beauty of this image for days to come.  See you in a few. We love you Sid.  We love you Coach Taylor.  We love you Dillon Panthers.  We love you Pens.  […]

It ain’t over till it’s over

It’s hard to get cohesive thoughts together today.  I feel like I have been on a long (and often grueling) journey with this team.  And that’s why, really, I will be pretty satisfied no matter what the outcome of tonight is.  Because the journey was rewarding. Let me back up.   This is going to […]

Lesson Learnt

OMG, JStaal really took the Battle of Maldon to heart, didn’t he?  Atta boy! On towards Friday!  Huzzah!

Do it for Professor Tolkien!

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Alright, let’s try this again.  Maybe last time we chose the wrong set of verse to study.  This time we’ll pick something that not only is fitting for the circumstances, but it was also one of Professor J.R.R. Tolkien’s very favorite lines of Old English poetry. Learn Old English Poetry With Jordan Staal, Part 2 […]

Damn. Well, you know the proverb: “Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill.” But there’s really only one man who could make sense out of a turnaround like that.  Only one man who is a solid rock of trust and nobility in the stormy seas of sports uncertainty. And that man is Coach […]

Your village. I saxs it.
