OK, Just a Little Weird

Today the remnants of the tropical storm (almost hurricane) named Alberto made its way through Raleigh where tonight the Carolina Hurricanes play what may be the clincher to win the Stanley Cup versus the Edmonton Oilers who, by the way, are from Alberta… So, maybe I’m just easily intrigued.

Redneck Hockey

Tonight the fun continues. The race for the Stanley Cup enters the final round. A best out of seven series between the Edmonton Oilers and the Carolina Hurricanes.

Redneck Hockey points to the fact that this part of the country is hardly known for ice let alone ice hockey. While Carolina made it to the final round in 2002, it was widely assumed they would fall to the Detroit Redwings and they did just that and quickly. This time around though, they are looking like a team that means business. As far as this yankee is concerned it sure beats NASCAR.

Buglady Just Squirted

I finished my lunch and was poking around the web enjoying the quiet. My office door opens ever so gently and a uniformed lady steps in and politely asks how I am doing. She makes three squirts from her industrial looking garden sprayer, tells me to have a good day and leaves closing my door behind her. Should I be holding my breath?

Your Chocolate Age

Silly things intrigue me. I stumbled on this over at Amidst a tangled Web.

  1. Pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)
  2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
  3. Add 5
  4. Multiply it by 50
  5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1756 .. If you have not, add 1755.
  6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should now have a three digit number. The first digit of this was your original number (i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week). The next two numbers are your age! I’m not sure I want to understand the math behind this because, as Dan mentions:

…like magic tricks, they’re usually not nearly as impressive after you know how they work.
