That’s a great song to have in your head, especially when it’s true! My favorite part of the game was when those two Rangers ran into each other behind the Stars net. I’m replaying that in my mind all night now. :D
Can he hit snooze for one more game then stay up for the rest of the season?
Good morning, everyone! It’s another beautiful day here (in Dallas). How’s everyone else this fine morning? (I can say this because tomorrow around noon I’m going to go into “Stupid Dallas! Yay Devils!”) (Just kidding!)
I’m catching a little of the Sabres game before I head off to Bunco. And while I have never had the pleasure of watching a Buffalo game before, for some reason, I seem to know most of the players’ names. Hmmm.
Sorry I didn’t see your question sooner, Amy! Life (in Dallas) is AWESOME! We’re having a BLAST! (Until tomorrow when we’re fighting like cats and dogs.) How’s life now that you’re recuperating? You doing okay now?
Did you bring them back from the Adirondacks? I’m SO sorry!
Oh, no they way predate the Adirondacks (and you wouldn’t really get them there anyway since they like to live where they can suck human blood). I thought I had hives and was having an allergic reaction to my bed. So I stripped off the mattress cover and ew! bugs.
And I thought, “but my house isn’t dirty,” but it turns out that dirtiness is irrelevant when it comes to bedbugs. The exterminator is coming tomorrow.
alix, what’s the score? And did I see that Wellwood got called back up?
It was 3-1 going into the 3rd. They came out like they were on speed in the 3rd and made it 3-2, but just couldn’t beat Leclaire right at the end. He robbed a Sedin and a Bernier. They Rick Nash got an empty netter to make it 4-2.
And yes, Wellwood did get called up because Demitra is made of cotton candy and gumdrops and duct tape. He had 2 points, and finally got our disgusting power play rolling. Heh. And this was after not skating for 5 days. He’s the weirdest player ever, I swear!
Meg, that is so gross! I am SO, SO, SO, SO SORRY! You’re having such a tough year with bugs in your apartment
Heh. Well I guess that at least I know these are real. Unlike the ringworm which turned out to not be ringworm after all. I’m not sure that real bugs are actually preferable to fantasy fungi though. I think Pyramus is like, “I swear, it’s not me this time. I’m perfect and fabulous.” Of course, he’s also going on a little vacation to my roommate’s parents’ house on Long Island while they bomb my apartment, but he doesn’t know that yet.
and keep him away from their cat-loving Huskies who would de-smug him rather rapidly
:^:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Yeah, that would knock him down a notch or two. :P
Frisby, we also just turned on the game. I didn’t even realize they were on a giant power play. I’m not doing a very good job of paying attention to the games tonight. I didn’t register a single minute of the Sabres game, even though Patty’s got this enormous TV that I could see perfectly from the kitchen. Someday in March I’m going to look back on this night and be angry that I wasted a night of October hockey by not paying attention.
Well, it is quite a large TV… But no, months and months ago we thought, “We want to visit Patty in Dallas and the Stars play the Devils! Perfect!” Now that the game is less than 24 hours away I’m convinced we’re going to be driving to the airport in stony silence two minutes after the final buzzer! :D (Just kidding. I’m sure we can be reasonable adults regardless of the final score.)
Pookie, you make such a great point about gingerbread houses!
And I don’t think the original plan was to be here specifically for the Devils/Stars game. The Stars very helpfully had almost no home games this month, and we really wanted to be here in October; then we looked at the schedule and realized our options were Stars/Avs or Stars/Caps — while it’s definitely a choice between two evils, it’s also a no-brainer. Then we saw that the Stars would be in Jersey a few days after the Avs game, and we figured it would be a marvelous idea to fly out here to watch the Stars playing in Newark. :P
Frisby, looks like Rene Bourque got an instigator, fighting, unsportsmanlike conduct, and a game misconduct, all at the same time. 19 PIM all in one shot. Nearly a whole period of penalty minutes – I wonder what the record is?
Meg, I had bed bugs at a former apartment, so I know what you’re going through. Mrs. Redank and I got rid of them, so there is hope.

And then they called me and told me their flight info. :P
I’m sorry about the bedbugs too, Meg! That’s so disgusting, my skin is crawling just thinking about it. Bah.
I so want to watch the game tonight, but I’d have to go to sleep right now, and then wake up again otherwise I won’t be awake for my mock exam tomorrow morning! Boo! (a mock that will still mean points on the actual exam if I do well, so yeah, I wanna do well)
Egads, I’m really not looking forward to this game.
Dude, have you seen our team lately? If you were Stars fans, I’d be passing the NyQuil.
Thanks, redank. Man, I’m whiny when I’m on IPB huh? I have the beginnings of a cold, which is making me feel awful, but hey. If it’s the worst thing that ever happens to me, I’ll have lived a good life. :D
WOOOOOOOOOOO! Stars vs. Devils! WOOOOOOO!!! Sigh. I think this is going to get ugly. It had better not go to a shootout is all I’ll say. Or rather, it had better not go to a shootout loss to the Devils is all I’ll say.
That’s the kind of story, Greg, where you think, “It’s not going to get better than that, I should quit now.” But that would suck for the rest of us, so just keep dreaming of a story even better! What that story could possibly be, I don’t know. But I’m sure someone, somewhere, will think of something!
