Who won the NHL All-Star SuperSkills Elimination Shootout? I WILL TELL YOU WHO.


That's right. The one people ignore, the one who isn't Ryan Getzlaf or Bobby Ryan. The one from the Ducks who, even after winning a Cup, are considered more thugs than an actual hockey team. He's the one who outlasted 37 other players including ooooohOvechkin and Marty St. Louis and both Sedins and Eric Staal and Rick Nash. He's the only one who scored three goals. My little weasel mobster is all growed up and pwning the All Stars.

(He also TOTALLY should've won the Breakway Challenge, even the announcers thought so.)

Look at me, I'm procrastinatoring!

Someone posted a thread in the fantasy section of the BPAL forums about Hockey Scents. I, being obsessive, decided I needed to come up with scents for all 30 NHL teams. (I didn't quite, someone else came up with Red Wing. Better that way, mine would've been mean.)

What does your team smell like? )

Who finished marking 72 midterms in 50 hours total (including sleep and hockey game and errands)?!


I am so proud of me, you guys. I buckled down and did it and now I have way more time than anticipated to... write my own papers. This term kinda sucks. BUT, I am way proud of me. So proud that I now will proceed to knock out a four page paper this evening, watch the Ducks/Sharks game (we're totally gonna win this one. I have faith in my TEAM), and possibly even get some playtime in. Oh yes. I am on a roll.

Tomorrow, I will write at least one 4 page paper (maybe two) and hopefully also take out the trash and watch this week's Hellcats and Katee Sackhoff on CSI from Thursday and Tricia Helfer on Lie to Me from Monday.

I am gonna kick this term's ass. I am absolutely convinced of it.

(P.S. My students are WAY better this term. There were some pratfalls and idiotic statements, but 45.5% of them got some variety of A. A further 33.5% got Bs of some sort. 13.5% got Cs. 1% got Ds. And only 5.5% failed. SO MUCH BETTER.)

Dear Ryan Miller,

You are a goalie, booboo. You are not supposed to go all the way to the blue line in order to join a scrum pile. You have teammates for that. Especially since the fight had nothing to do with you personally. What?


P.S. I am done marking. Now it is writing time. Go go gadget Scarlet Pimpernel

I have a new hockey girlfriend. It happened last night during the Opening Ceremony.

This is Hayley Wickenheiser:

She's the Captain of the Team Canada women's hockey squad. If you watched the OC last night, she was the one who read the athlete's oath. She's pretty and she has a great voice, which are what made me notice her last night. Today, I investigated further and it turns out, she's TOTALLY AWESOME.

2010 is Hayley's 5th Olympic appearance. She also played with the Canadian women's softball squad in Sydney. She won gold in Salt Lake City and Torino and silver in Nagano. She's the first woman to make her living playing pro-hockey, not as a goalie. She did two years on Finnish teams and a year Division 1 with a Swedish team. Those are men's hockey squads, She can take a check and throw one, because she's just that badass. She has an honorary doctorate from Nipissing University. She traveled to Rwanda with Right to Play. If she hadn't been a hockey player, she'd want to be working against the AIDS crisis in Africa. She has a children's book written about her called Born to Play. She's been IIHF Best Women's Forward of the tournament twice, 2007 & 2009, and she was MVP in 2007. She was Olympic MVP in both gold medal runs. On April 1, 2010, the first Hayley Wickenheiser International Women's Hockey Tournament will open in Burnaby, BC. (I wanna go)

This is Hayley Wickenheiser and she is AWESOME.

(If anyone can find a pic of her taking the oath in the Opening Ceremonies, I would be extremely appreciative)

I have had my hairs cut! *crossed fingers for no more stupid frizzies*

Also, my Corey Perry jersey arrived, so I can go to the Ducks/Wild game in style.

Okay, I admit it. GIP.

Was I unclear about my plans for tonight? I said, to anyone who asked me, that I was going to stay in, watch the hockey game, and hand out candy to trick-or-treaters.

Well, my upstairs neighbors are making enough noise to scare off small children and the darker it gets, the less visible the sign in my window with the arrow pointing people around the corner is.

And Centre Ice has decided that the Ducks game can be on GameCenter online, but not on Centre Ice on TV, so I can't have it, since there's no way to buy a la carte games online and I refuse to pay $200 to have games on my computer when I'm already paying $200 to have them on TV. Centre Ice and GameCenter are both run by the NHL, if it's available online, I should be able to have it on TV. But I can't.

So... Now I'm not in a good frame of mind to do my Samhain ritual. In fact, I may just sit here and cry because damnit, I'm just that hormonal right now.
bardic_lady: (hockey - perry)
Okay, y'all. One of the Pens announcers called Sergei Samsonov of the 'Canes a "crafty little waterbug of a player". Will someone PLEASE tell me WTF that means?

(P.S. GO DUCKS GO!!!!!)

Seven new white hairs today. I blame Tuesday, which was an absolute disaster of a day.

Woke up, couldn't find my student ID anywhere. Ripped my apartment apart looking for it, nothing. Without my ID, I can't ride the bus, nor can I check out library books, which was a problem since my plan for the day was dominated by researching in the library and picking up the 5 books I needed for my Wednesday class. Went to put on my new steampunk bat/angel necklace and the chain snapped. :( I paid for bus fare to campus because it was coming down cats and dogs and bought a new ID. Slogged to the library and picked up a pile of books and then went to class. Got an email telling me that somehow I left my ID at Subway on Monday. *facepalm*

Got home and got kind of excited about doing a fresh layout for the Big Damn Web Project (aka Joss Whedon Annotated Web Guide for Web Design class) but apparently also shut off my brain at the same time, because I proceeded to take my new blank template pages and write them over the content filled pages that I spent all of last weekend creating. The internet was kind and I hadn't uploaded the new pages yet, so I was eventually able to pick my content back up again, but that was a deeply panicking and self-loathing moment. I gave up and went to bed.

That was my Tuesday. I'd rather not repeat it.

The good news is, it's NHL Opening Day, so hockey returns to the universe, and the Toy Story 3-D double feature and Whip It are both on the docket for this weekend.

(Prof has convinced entire class I TA that Clytemnestra is a slut and that's how the Athenians would have seen her. And is calling Cassandra when she's brought onstage by Agamemnon in Aeschylus's Agamemnon a "minx on a leash" *FACEPALM* *gets out Big Book of Feminism for THWAPPAGE*)

Motherpucker. So frakkin' close. Okay, regroup troop, we'll get it on Sunday.

4.4 quake. The entire STATE disapproves of this loss.

Look out, Red Wings, we're comin' at you...

Hey, I fail at update!

Um... Ducks shut out the Sharks last night. Boo. Yah. Take that, Nabby. The announcers persist in talking about Getz and Perrs as 'twin brothers', when it's very clear that they are boyfriends.
*In other news around the NHL, Scott Hartnell is a big 'ole butt, I apparently dislike the Sedins more than I realized, little Chris Kunitz is a daddy now and playing nicely for the Pens on the wing of the Bits, and I had higher hopes for the Blue Jackets than Game 1 showed. With the exception of the Hawks, I favour the underdog teams in the West, without exception, I prefer the overdog(?) teams in the East. So, I'm for the Chicago Blackhawks, the St. Louis Blues, the Columbus Blue Jackets, and the Anaheim Ducks, in the West, and the Boston Bruins, the Washington Capitals, and the Pittsburgh Penguins. (I just don't care about the Devils-Hurricanes series. If pressed, I'd call it for the Devils, but I really don't care.)

I'm in the dead waiting time on an internship in DC and grad school. *twiddles thumbs and frets*

Looking forward to the BSG Prop Auction Redux coming up in a few weeks, as well as the Ron Moore WGA event I bought my ticket for today.

Am considering picking up a new TV show. You be the judge: NCIS or the BBC's Robin Hood?

I Cannot Hide What I Am

I must be sad when I have cause and smile
at no man's jests, eat when I have stomach and wait
for no man's leisure, sleep when I am drowsy and
tend on no man's business, laugh when I am merry and
claw no man in his humour...
I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in
his grace, and it better fits my blood to be
disdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob
love from any: in this, though I cannot be said to
be a flattering honest man, it must not be denied
but I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with
a muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I
have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my
mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do
my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and
seek not to alter me.
