I've had an epiphany

I've finally figured out what bugs me so much about JBug(how appropriate) from the boards. It's not that she's a conservative parrot (ie, she is conservative, but doesn't seem to have opinions of her own, she just says "me too" a lot)'s that she doesn't stand up for her opinions.
Argh...that's what it is.
I'm fine with you not agreeing with me but if you need be able to stick to your opinions when people disagree with you. She hems and haws and backs down and it really pisses me off!
I really hate pushovers.

Whew, I feel better now. Oh, and Shmee, since you have no idea when I was talking about, send me an email at debcapsfan at gmail dotcom. I have something to ask you. Your hockey couples post was hilarious. :)

I need to practice my shhhhhh

I got accepted into the University of South Carolina's Library Sciences program. I'm tremendously excited.
It's an online program, and I'll still be working full time, so I'll probably start with one class at a time.

The Montreal Canadiens are the greatest hockey team on the planet right now. Forget the Cup champs, they have nothing on the Canadiens. Their farm team is fantastic, and it was obvious from the beginning they were going to beat the Caps farm team, the Hershey Bears. The Canadiens aren't going to loose Carey Price despite the fact they already have four goalies in their system already and have waste of space Aebischer to a boatload of money. They are going to find a place for him...somewhere. They recognize how terrific he is.
And Ovechkin wears pink panties to home games. And yellow crocs on the ice when shooting pucks around before games.

(We will return with our regularly scheduled blog soon.)

For Jason

A year ago today you and I went on our first date. As I watched you sit at the table, looking out in the rain, I knew my life would be forever changed. Thank you for being such a good friend to me. You are someone I can always count on, always in my corner, always cheering me on in everything I do. You are an amazing man. People are touched by you in little ways that you probably don't realize. I have always had a good life, but it is much richer with you in it. I love you now and always.

Yes, I was Invited

Despite all the other times I was not invited, I was invited to Jason's parents for Memorial Day. It was fine. Their family is just very different than mine. They are not particularly affectionate outwardly towards each other. Jason's sister is very loud and brash. I suppose it will be fine if they are nice to my face but continue to badmouth me behind my back. I can only hope that will change over time and I can win them over. I just have to hope they give me a chance to do so.
Friday I took the day off and went to the Caps' minor league team playoff hockey game with Abbi. As soon as we arrived at the stadium it rained like mad. Thunder and lightning and buckets of rain. The power was even out for a bit before they could get things started. The best thing about minor league hockey is that everything is so cheap. The tickets were cheap, and my goodness, beer was $4.50. For a BIG one. The Bear's lost the game, but I had a good time anyway. I also take it as a good omen since we went last year to a game and they lost but went on to win the championship. We decided we need a larger sample of games before we declare ourselves bad luck.
Saturday morning we had to drive back because I was playing TMNT again. It was a lot of fun. Jason came by Dan's and we went back to my place. We saw most of the end of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Once I decided the game was pretty well decided I jumped Jason. If it had gone into overtime I probably would have made him wait....
Sunday I puttered around and did laundry and watched Ari nap. He's very adept at napping all over the apartment.
Tonight we are going to a talk at the Spy Museum on codebreaking from WWII. It should be cool.
