My buddy Gandalf is coming up on his 16th birthday and has been very ill this weekend.  Wobbly on his feet and not eating much.  Kidney disease has been ruled out.  We will be headed back to the vet on Tuesday to pursue further options….hoping for something treatable like an ear infection.

We interrupt this interruption

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Just a quick briefing to say that I’m alive.  The first few phases of Hell Weeks are winding down.  Next week will be gearing up for this year’s Meeting From Hell. Other than that, I’ve been trying out a few new LUSH products, rediscovering old hotties (both of which I hope to blog about next […]

See you in hell, my friends

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

No, not another post about Shaun White-Sid Crosby-etc-themed perverted thoughts.  I wish. Nope, it’s to let you know that this blog may be dead for a week or two because my traditional May Hell Month at work, which should be winding down right now, is in fact only just gearing up! There were…delays.  And all […]

Friends say it’s nice, friends say it’s good, Ev’rybody says it’s just like Robin Hood

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

No reason for the header pic, other than that I love Charlie Crowe. I just love him. That is all. So, Robin Hood. It was 2/3 of one helluva movie.  Going in, I was so worried that I would not be able to view it without the bias I’d bring from my knowledge/resentment of the […]

Drive-By Smiting

Friday, May 14th, 2010

Yo, peace out, R! Oooohhh gaaawd.  Robin Hood this weekend.  Such mixed feelings.  I think I said this before, but 3 or 4 years ago when this movie was still in production, and this movie was still called Nottingham, and this movie was meant to star Rusty portraying the Sheriff as good guy, I was […]

C’mon Get Happy

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Ok, so we lost.  But you know what?  We won last year, and we deserved it more last year. Besides, I just can’t be down.  As of today, BW is done with studying for his Master’s Qualifier!!  I get my friend and husband back!  *boogies* And I’m gonna celebrate with some JGL! *boogies* And for […]

Seriously, y’all?

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Really?  You Pens are making me have to bust out Coach Taylor on your asses THIS early in the playoffs?  Against Montreal?!  That is just wrong.  You can do better than that.  The unbridled power of Coach Taylor should be held in reserve for the most dire of situations…maybe the finals…maybe against somebody like Washington…. […]

Forgive me father, for I have ‘shopped

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Some of you may know that my husband Boy Wonder has his Masters Qualifying Exam coming up this week.  He has been prepping very hard.  Very, very hard. As such, I find myself with a lot of free time on my hands.  A lot. Some people who have suffered through the burden of student spouses […]

Toast of the Town

Monday, May 10th, 2010

Is it a rule or cosmic destiny that black-haired boys named Sid must be awesome?  Dunno. Happy birthday to the original.  The Sid Prime.  We will always love you, and miss you.  Wish you’d been around to toss rocks at Malcom’s funeral cortege. Stay angry out there.

Quicker than a battle-axe to the back of the head

Holy Odin almighty, Jordan Staal is back on the ice tonight!!! The Secret of Steel…JStaal knows it! AARRRRR!

I am Iro…ahh, screw it.

I wish I wanted to see Iron Man 2, but I don’t.  Can’t really put my finger on why, but I don’t. Mainly I guess it’s because I no longer like the 1st Iron Man.  Has this ever happened to any of you?  You see a movie, walk out of the movie theater really liking […]

I have been and ever shall be your fangirl.

Remember Staal Wars?  Rev up Photoshop because here’s what I propose for the 2010 playoffs:

Ubi Sunt

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

As the Pens must face another game without our fallen warrior JStaal, I thought this would be a very apt time to continue the program we began last playoffs, Learn Old English Poetry with Jordan Staal. Today’s very topical lesson will be the Ubi Sunt theme as it occurs in Anglo-Saxon verse. “Ubi Sunt”  (literally […]

Breaking News: Some PGH sports fans aren’t retards!

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

This is the single best article ever written about Pittsburgh sports in the history of Pittsburgh and sports. Pittsburgh fans turn to Crosby Yes, this will always be Steelers country, first and foremost. But recent events – both good and bad – have run together like the three rivers themselves, and suddenly hockey is gaining […]

The mighty have fallen

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

OH NO. So the Pens thrash Montreal last night, but who cares?  The victory is pyrrhic, because Baby JStaal was wounded in the battle. I cannot believe it!  Who would dare to lift a finger to JStaal?! This cannot go unavenged!  In other words Please everyone reading this light a candle for mah BabyJ.  I’d […]
