1-2-3 Hockey: 9 of 39

August 31 2009

It was perfect weather today — dry and little bit cool (leading into bona fide chilly in the evening), and when I left work the sky was just incredible. I stopped for corn at the farm stand and snapped a couple of pictures. –Schn.

Matsui’s a total camera hog, and can’t resist posing on the ironing board in the downstairs snuggery.

1-2-3 Hockey: 6 of 39

We got a harebrained scheme to make s’more cakelets earlier this week, and finally saw the plan through to its delicious conclusion today. The base was graham sponge cake, the middle homemade marshmallow, and the top was a schmear of melted bittersweet chocolate. We also had the harebrained plan to cut the cakelets into seasonal shapes, specifically using the back-to-school cookie cutters in our collection. We cut one apple shape, and then a witch, a ghost, a tombstone and two coffins. So… not so much with the back-to-school. Heh.

Schnookie and I headed over the farm bright and early this morning so that Schnookie could slave over picking blackberries, green beans and hot peppers, and I could wander around taking pictures. — Pookie

It’s high tomato season, proof that good can triumph over evil (or at least over late blight).

Opening night is 36 days away but already we’re eyeing the Devils suspiciously. Why? Because of this report. The Devils are going to wear their original Christmas tree sweaters for a St. Patrick’s Day game. Fuck. That. Shit. One of the best things about being a Devils fan is being able to say “my team takes the high road on stupid alternate sweater gimmicks”. Well, no more, Gentle Reader. Now when you see a Christmas tree sweater in the crowd, it won’t be because the fan wearing it is an original Devils fan who remembers the Mickey Mouse days. It’ll be because someone decided it was high time the marketing department caught up to the rest of the moneygrubbing NHL teams. Lou’s given some excuse about the sweater being “part of the team’s history”. Frankly, all the history we need is hanging from the rafters. This had better not be the first step towards a third jersey! Because if the Devils get a third jersey… we’ll be forced to blog crankily about it. We’re fairly certain Lou doesn’t want that.
