Welcome back. This is the part of the locker room where you can sit and chat and chill for a while without offending or being shushed. Maybe you wanna watch a dvd or listen to your mp3. Yes, I rhymed. Something on your mind, post it! Random question, ask it? Hijacking is allowed and encouraged. Join the party, troll around, have a beer. It's cool. All are welcome, but please leave all BS in the hall. 

Good Morning. I'm achy and kinda blue still, but...whateva. Today I do believe is my sista gurl's Birthday! Happy Birthday, you know I luff you so much! Be awesome...and write. 

Fall officially starts in TWO days! YAY. I can barely walk but I'll be going to a liquor store after work to celebrate it all properly.

Be easy.

Robert Hughes got cut by the Colts on the last day of cuts.  frown   I certainly hope he finds some work soon.  He's such a nice guy and it sucks to see him not doing what he loves to do.

Blackhawks signed Goalie Corey Crawford to a 6 yr - $36 million extension. yes


His contract extension and cap hit makes me wonder what Hotty Pants Lundqvist is going to get. It also makes me really love Quick's contract that starts this season.

I must admit that this morning I am on the verge of giving up watching the NFL for good. From making this league basically 2 hand touch to giving the same group of 10-15 backup quarterbacks and kickers the opportunity to get cut and resigned by every team in the league all in the same offseason is making Goodell's once wonderful league look like a poor man's USFL at best.  Also even though I am not by any means a Tim Tebow fan, I must admit I feel bad for him.  According to most fans and insiders, our streets and communities are now safer because Tebow has been cut by the Patriots and now looks like his career might be over.  Really?  This is all we have to talk about?  I believe it's safe to say that if you polled every starting quarterback in the league and most if not all of the backups as well, most would do the "right thing" and say they would switch positions to stay in the league, however I doubt any actually would switch.  Tim if your listening,(yeah right) please retire so the NFL will finally admit that their are much worse guys on/off the field than you and yet they still have jobs in the league.  Are you listening (Matt Leinart/Brady Quinn?)

According to the schedule the first pre-season game is the 15th against the Coyotes. So yeah, Phoenix will complain about it in exactly twelve days. Unless of course a Kings player miss plays a puck at center ice and Sutter has an epic meltdown then has whoever's idea that was in the front office tarred and feather on their way out the door. Either way I'm looking forward the the impending overreaction. Well done Kings!

Took today and tomorrow off to give myself a little mini-vacation. It ended up being good timing, since last week I managed to piss off my boss twice even though she was away on travel. It's a bit of an oil and water situation.

Cynical thought of the day: Most football fans do not give one damn about players' health and safety. Not one damn.

I NEED to go to the post office today.

Kiddo starts school tomorrow. I'm thinking I'm not that great a parent...not only am I excited for her to go back to school, but then I'm yanking her OUT of school on 9/13 and 9/16 so we can all go to a concert and a primetime Seahawks game. Ahhh priorities and responsibilities. I've never been all that great at either one and now I'm providing a wonderful example for my child. At least that's her birthday weekend, so I can use that angle...right?

My husband's going hunting this week. I never thought I'd be a hunter's wife :/ I'm not thrilled. I don't like elk meat. He does, though, and he's been wanting to go bow hunting since we got into archery, so I'll be supportive.

There's a lot of other stuff going on, but I don't really wanna get into it. Hope everyone has a great day!
Happy Birthday Leigh...

Rogs,
Hey you can tell the world
That you're leaving
And you can pack your bags
And spread your wings
And you can tell them all
That it's over
But while you wave goodbye
I'll be getting closer

Stand there and look into my eyes
And tell me that all we had were lies
Show me that to you it don't count
And I'll stand here if you prefer
Yes I'll leave you without a word
Without a word

And you can tell the world
That you're tired
But your excuses, they won't work
'Cause I'll know that you're lying
Every time that I see your face
I notice all the suffering
Just turn to my embrace
I won't let you come to nothing

Stand there and look into my eyes
And tell me that all we had were lies
Show me that to you it don't count
And I'll stand here if you prefer
Yes I'll leave you without a word
Without a word

text me

xoxo

Good Afternoon.

Had a great weekend.   Summer Pops had their last performances of the season, with the 1812 overture.   This year, we added a few extras to the fireworks.     We added a flame cannon, which we fired off at the end of the performance the first couple days, as the barge "blows up".   

Sunday's performance we switched it up.  During the performance there are 5 cannon shots from shore.   We fired the cannon after the 5th show, then blew a chain of aqua shells hanging off the side of the barge.    A burst of flame followed by a wall of stars flying.  Awesome.      I believe this video is from Friday's performance. (sorry, no wall of sparks.)

I kinda give a damn. I, like birthday boy Malcolm Gladwell, believe that HGH, Aderall, blood doping, testosterone, etc. (but not the weird 70's & 80's horse steroids) should be okay in sports and prescribed by doctors - when needed to recover from an injury - just like the rest of us. These witch hunts are stoooooopid. We can get a prescription for any of those things in a hour, but if an athlete uses it... "OMG! BAN HIM!" Ridiculous. Just add an asterix to the precious, precious records (rolls eyes) or whatever, the same way they do 'wind aided' times at track meets.

The catch being, for athletes when they are prescribed a drug, is that we all get to know about it each week like an injury report.

Also whatever is going on at that "clinic" Germany should be available here. I should make the trip with Kobe or 'All Day' next time they go for my back.

I forgot to put on sunscreen before the game Sunday afternoon, and now my face is peeling off.  It hurts AND it's highly attractive (sarcasm, just in case you couldn't tell).

I was talking about the concussion issue.
#15 | 325 days ago

I just made one of the best dinners ever, with leftover bell peppers from the other night. My husband grills up the peppers with steak when he makes it usually, and we had a lot of those left because instead of doing three (like usual), he grilled up six. I cut chicken breasts into strips and sauted them just a little withs some garlic, onion, salt and pepper. Then I put them in baking dish and covered them with the peppers and then with shredded Parm and Romano cheeses and baked them. It kinda turned out perfect. Served with asparagus and couscous. mmmmmm It seems like the only time my dinners turn out great is when I just throw stuff together like a mad scientist.

I read a post on FB today that said something to the effect:

"How many people are alive today because you don't know a hitman?"

Perhaps it's something in my subconscious, but initially I read:

"How many people have saved your life because they don't know a hitman?"
