saturday musings...

1. if i can fully support NJ in playing their backup goalie on the final game of the season last year, much to the dismay of leafs fans (who's team would only earn a playoff spot with a devils win), then i can't get mad at the stars for benching turco today v. the canucks.... even though it totally blows.

2. in the same vein, i guess i can't get mad at detroit for deciding not to show up to the joe today to play nashville.

3. if/when the flames win, i can watch highlights for days and read every article on the entire internet on the subject. if/when the flames lose, i can't bring myself to watch OR read. absolutely nothing. complete blackout. ipso facto: i kinda miss the flames....

4. i really like the term "ipso facto." i don't even care if i'm using it correctly....

5. thank you to NJ, phoenix & LA for beating their NW division opponents recently. it's been a big help to the current standings while the flames have been busy shitting the proverbial bed....

6. after two dismal outings that i refuse to discuss (see point #3), i have 'reset' my superstitions. both jerseys: washed. i will wear one tomorrow for the chicago game, and let you know how that turns out.

7. i am attending a tupperware party tomorrow afternoon (yeah, they still do this, apparently). for those of you who have met me, you'll surely understand that this activity, instead of watching the game, is the cause of excrutiating emotional pain. unless the flames play like a bunch of monkeys again, then i'll be glad for it (again, see #3). and if the flames DO win, then i'll be frantically searching for tupperware parties to attend (see #6).

that's about it, i guess.

A tupperware party?

You wild child, you.

They really shouldn't call them parties, should they? Tupperware gatherings, perhaps. Tupperware group discussions. Horrible, mind-numbing torture, etc...

So when is your next tupperware party?

leanne said...

Yes, that's exactly right. I think you need to continue your tupperware party attendance habit.
