I am ca-RAZY busy over the next week, so things might get a little tumbleweedy around here. I’ll do my best to post a little something every day, but I can make no promises.
I have two tidbits for you this afternoon:
1. Ryan Miller and the Sabres Gang had the cuddliest press conference in NHL history this morning. It was all, “I love you, Ryan Miller,” “No, I love you Darcy Regier” “We just want to be the best professional hockey team we can be.” I know that as soon as the Sabres take the ice I will stop being this sentimental old Crunchy-lovin’ fool, but dang it, it practically brings a tear to my eye to listen to him speak right now. I am so excited about next season that I’m having a difficult time reconciling that it is mid-July. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE mid-July, but I am so psyched about hockey that if it snowed this evening it would fit my mindset perfectly.
2. I still feel kind of scared of tomatoes even though I know they have been declared cootie-free. Remember a few years ago when spinach had e coli cooties? Well, that happened during a particularly oblivious time in my life when I wasn’t watching much tv or paying much attention to things occurring beyond the ten feet surrounding me. As a result, I ate a lot of the EXACT spinach that had e coli. So, while the rest of the country was burning their spinach at the stake and freaking out in general, I was happily munching on a daily e coli salad. When I finally clued in, I did a little research and learned that whatever happens to you when you eat e coli has a seven day incubation period. So, I had to sit around for a week, waiting to find out if I was about to experience a terribly gruesome fate. I didn’t. I must have lucked out and eaten only cootie-free spinach, but that week I spent fretting was no fun. Food cooties are lame. Shop locally, people!
