OK NOW I'M STARTING TO GET A LITTLE WORRIED

by Anne

Ok, so I've been trying to be all "la la la they'll sign Pommer and Teppo soon, la la la, all is well, la la la doot doot doo" since Miller's extension was announced. HOWEVER. It's been like 3 weeks or maybe its been 10 years, (it feels like the latter) since then, and I'm starting to get a little worried about MY "top priority this off season" signing one Mr. Jason John Pominville.

O Captain, My Captain will be signed, I'm sure of it, it'd just be nice if it was sooner rather than later, the same is probably true for Teppo. I just don't have the energy today to get really worked up about it. However, if by the time classes start (August 25, FYI) we still haven't heard anything, I will begin to grow nervous.

The last hockey thing to give me true hockeyjoy was Miller's extension. My efforts to love the Bills are slow going, my manicure is chipping like crazy, much to my dismay, my student loan is taking FOREVER to be approved, I didn't get much sleep last night and its kind of gloomy out this morning. Oh, and I'm hungry and this new Crystal Light flavor I just bought is basically tasteless. Unlike its brethren which are still to sweet when diluted in twice the recommended amount of water, the Iced Tea really should be drank in 16 ounces, instead of my usual 32. Alack and fie.

I kinda feel like doing this 100 things thing but I don't know how interesting I am, so lets give it a shot-er-oo:

100. I hate 90% of female comedians with a few exceptions (Ellen Degeneres being one)

99. I'm left eye dominant but right hand dominant

98. My first real date was when I was 16 with a guy named Matt, I broke up with him because he was kind of lame. The bad news: He's going to be some sort of doctor. The good news: It appears he's still lame

97. I failed my road test twice before I passed it yet the only violation I've ever committed (or at least been caught doing) is parking tickets

96. Ever since I can remember, when something upsets me, I want to be alone. I've never been the type to want someone to comfort me or take care of me. Unless I'm sick and my mommy is there, then there is much whining and carrying on until she makes me soup or reads me a story or something mommy-like, but for the most part, I like to handle those things on my own

95. I'm allergic to skim milk, just skim milk, I can eat all other dairy products

94. I can't stand almost all holiday related foods, including: Peeps, candy corn, peppermint candy canes, egg nog, pumpkin pie, Jingles, etc. The notable exceptions being Cadbury Eggs and all Halloween candy

93. My left foot is slightly smaller than my right foot and my left boob is slightly smaller than my right. I'm a FREAK

92. As it says in my profile, I once saw Derek Roy at a bar and for some reason completely unbeknownst to me I squealed like a little girl. I don't even really like Derek Roy, it might've been the gin squealing

91. Speaking of gin, my drink of choice is a gin and tonic and the other night, as happens frequently, guys give me looks like I'm crazy because I drink that. BACK OFF BUDDY BOY, THE SUGAR IN COSMOS AND FRUIT JUICES MIXED WITH ALCOHOL MAKES MY TUMMY HURT

90. My sister is 2 years older than I am but for YEARS people have thought I was older probably because I'm taller and heavier

89. I have a tattoo of 4 paw prints on my right foot. On August 11th I'm going to get another added for my cat, Oscar. August 11th is the 1 year anniversary of the day I adopted him

88. There are some songs and bands I can listen to forever, but I have a habit of listening to current pop songs a million times in a row and then discarding them forever

87. Every time I see the number 87 I think of Sidney Crosby, isn't that totally lame?

86. I hate Keira Knightley as much as you can hate someone you've never met or interacted with in anyway

85. My handwriting is awful and I hate writing notes of any kind by hand, like I can't even read them, they're so bad. Typing is much faster and neater, and then I can goof off and go on Facebook

84. As of July 18th I don't eat meat, cheese or drink regular soda. I don't think I've lost much weight yet, but I feel better

83. We've had 4 dogs in my lifetime: Liberty (my parents named her, something about Pennsylvania, I don't get it), Lady, Lucky and Nicholas. Lucky got her name because we used to call our first dog Beah, so they were "Beah and Lady" pronounced like the song "Luck Be a Lady". Therefore we named our 3rd dog Lucky, to fill in the song title. THAT WAS ALL MY IDEA WHEN I WAS 10. Lucky and Nicholas are the only 2 still kickin'

82. When I was a freshman in college I HATED EVERYTHING ABOUT MY LIFE. So I changed everything: majors, friends, schools, and things turned out much better

81. Ironically, I'm going back to school to basically complete the degree I started at Fredonia before I transferred

80. The first hockey game I ever went to was in like 2000 and it ended in a scoreless tie, I don't even remember who we played, but it was cool

79. If Jarome Iginla showed up at my door right now and proposed to me, I'd say yes without hesitation. His wife might object, but that's her problem, not mine

78. I feel the need to re design this blog frequently, but I've decided to hold off for now. However, I may revamp before the season starts. Re-organizing things like this is something I do when I need to clear my head

77. When I was about 5 I poured water in one of my ears just to see if it would come out the other... it didn't

76. I get sick (like to the doctor sick) so infrequently that when I do its like a swift kick in the face, it takes me forever to recover and I'm a huge baby about it. My definition of infrequent: the last time I was sick was November 2007, I had sinusitis and tonsillitis, before that, the last time I was sick was December 2003.

75. My mother frequently needs me to help her copy and paste things, yet she texts me all the time and just joined Facebook, Oh Mama Peg. Dad Jim is now on Facebook too.

That was 1 too many but I don't think I'll be able to come up with any more, we may need to leave it at that, lol.

Woo, that took a while. Is Pommer signed yet?!?!!!!! NO?! WHAT THE HECK?! BRETT FAVRE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? MATS SUNDIN, MAKE UP YOUR MIND! JOE SAKIC, YOU TOO! COME ON PEOPLE THIS IS GETTING RI-GOD-DAMN-DICULOUS! I DON'T CARE ABOUT MANNY RAMIREZ PLAYING FOR THE ANGELS! Wait, lots of people do? Ok: WHAT'S WITH MANNY RAMIREZ GOING TO THE ANGELS?!

THAT'S IT! LET'S PROTEST! MARCH ON HSBC ARENA! BRING THE TORCHES AND PITCHFORKS! YAAAAAAAAAA!!!

  2. 87. No, I think Crosby too!

    89. That is a genius idea! I want to be a genius like you. Gah.

    I've heard everyone's boobs are not the exact same size. I'd have to say mine are pretty much even. My boobs are pretty average, yours are probably bigger so you win. haha!!

    Good - I thought I was the only person who did this!

    90. My sister is 2 years older than I am but for YEARS people have thought I was older probably because I'm taller and heavier

    In my life, this works the opposite way. My sister is 5 years younger than me, but too many people think she's the older one because she's so much taller than me.

    I have like 2 good ideas a day and they usually get used up in class while directing something. My brand of genius is fleeting and temporary, haha.

    My sister and I have similar faces and hair but my body is like the built for making babies variety and hers is the runner's body. So we really look totally different. Both have their advantages I suppose, lol.

    ME TOO!

    my left boob is slightly smaller than my right. I'm a FREAK

    mine's the opposite, right is a little bigger but they are both pretty stinkin small!

    76- I get sick very infrequently as well. I was on a 5 year plan for a while. But when I'm sick I just hide from the world. I don't make a big deal out of it.

    87 IS CROSBY. And tomorrow is Sidney Crosby DAY! (8/7)

    83- I love it- Luck Be A Lady is one of the best musical songs ever! :) We did Guys and Dolls when I was in high school so it will always have a special place for me.

    84- I don't think I could ever give up cheese!

    Cool list. You need 75 more.. ;)

  8. We are passionate about hockey and organize a few pick up games a week. Because there are few tools for players like us to find a place to play, we decided to create our own pick-up hockey finder website. Within a few days our system will be functioning and not only make it way easier for people to organize a pickup game but it will also make it easier for them to find a pickup game...all over North America.

    Watch www.pickuphockeyfinder.com , it will be ready this week.

    We would appreciate any write ups on your blog, or be listed in your blogroll. We would also create a custom post about pickup hockey if you were interested.

    Thanks for your help!
