Wow, was my last update really April 2nd? I can't believe it's been that long. You know what that means?

I'm putting it under a cut. )

Today was a great day and it has nothing to do with the Super Bowl.

Went to Game 1 and Game 2 of the Caps-Rangers quarterfinals. Caps lost. Caps won Game 3 in MSG, lost Game 4. Caps were down 3 games to 1. Teams down by two have only an 8% chance of coming back and winning the series. Caps won Game 5 and Game 6. The series was tied and Game 7 was in DC. After watching Game 6, I checked the links friends had sent me to buy tickets online and finding a seat at Club level, I made the spontaneous decision to go. Holy crap it was the best seat and the best game ever! When Sergei Federov scored the winning goal, the Verizon Center erupted. And for the final five minutes of the game, no one sat down, no one quit yelling. No one could hear. It was so freakin' loud. It was unbelievable.

So today I went online and ordered another ticket for Game 1. I'm two rows from the ice, to the side of the net. I'd like to be up higher but it was the only seat available and I'll get to see guys get slammed into the boards. Awesome!

And now some CSI talk. Gone Dead Train )

Last night the Capitals played the Bruins. It was the second time the two teams have met this season. It was the second time the Caps beat the Bruins. This was a great game. The Bruins are #1 in the Eastern Conference, the Caps are #2 and now 9 points behind them. When the Caps play hard, like they did last night, I don't see any other team in the Eastern Conference that can beat them.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] la_dame_du_lac, I have discovered this [livejournal.com profile] ugly_crap. Honestly, it makes me nearly wet myself, I laugh so hard.

Pudgy, the neighborhood stray (it's a happy story) )

I'm working from home the next three days. Monday is usual and I'm trying to make Wednesday another usual work from home day but this week it's mostly due to the Inauguration festivities. I live out in the VA burbs, about 13 miles outside DC, and we're seeing increased traffic, mostly from people flying into Dulles and then not knowing where the hell they're going. We aren't nice drivers on a good day. Having a bunch of tourists on the roads doesn't help. It's best if we all just stay home and let the out-of-towners have at it.

I'd like to take the holiday tomorrow but as usual, there's too much going on at work so I don't think I can. Did I mention we are re-organizing AGAIN?! Yeah, they make that announcement while the other one isn't even done yet. But the much despised CFO of my sector has already been replaced by the liked CFO of the sector we're merging with so that's the upside. Anyway, I hate that people don't really recognize the MLK holiday so I like to make a point of taking it. Instead, I'll take it Tuesday. I think MLK would approve.

So I saw an article from some Philly paper where they asked a few celebrities about who they liked in the Super Bowl.

Paul Guilfoyle (Capt. Brass on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation): "The Philadelphia Eagles. I like them to go all the way. They're a little bit like our show. Kind of a wise guy in charge, Donovan McNabb, and a bunch of hard workers."

Personally, I'm hoping it's the Cardinals. I really don't like the Eagles and McNabb.

Christmas Eve and I think I might have found some Christmas joy.
