More Annoyed than Amused

Boston News and random stuff

Posted by parsingtime on January 17, 2007

One the 10 O’Clock news tonight one of the breaking stories was regarding a hockey game between two rival high schools. The crowd got rowdy and started throwing gold balls, other various debris and a squid on to the rink. That’s right A SQUID.

Who thinks, “hey we are playing our arch enemy rivals in hockey today, I’m going to pick up some seafood and chuck it at the opposing team?”  It is just bizarre.

In other news it is now officially freaking cold here. The temperature is in the teens and actually feels like -9 or something ridiculous like that. I’m not a fan.

We are (obviously) back in Boston. I’ve been gone for six weeks, which is just way too long to be away from home. Three weeks of work and then three weeks of Christmas vacation caused the long absence. We had a really nice time visiting our families and spending some sun soaked days in the Bahamas, so I can’t complain too much.

And so another semester starts for Husband….and work for me. I’ve decided I need to put more effort into my business and seek out more work. Hank Reardan has inspired me to be successful. Of course, I probably won’t create indestructible metal but perhaps I can make my work more interesting and satisfying for me.

I’ve also applied for a general job on a campaign that I’m not sure I believe in. I’m sure nothing will come of the application, but I really would like presidential campaign experience and therefore, I will swallow my democratic leaning ways and swing republican for the experience. We shall see. Of course, this paragraph and the last paragraph seem at odds with each other, but I figured it doesn’t hurt to apply.

In other news Random Banker got me a Real Simple Cookbook and I love it. It is fast becoming my most used source for recipes. Husband even said last night that he should take a picture of dinner because it looked so good. So yay for Real Simple. And speaking of cooking, I’m taking some cooking classes starting at the end of January. I’m quite excited. I’m taking a Thai class, where they will hopefully teach me how to make Thai iced tea (my lastest drinking obsession, which come to think of it, I should ask C re thai food) and a “learn the basics” class as well (where you learn what spices/herbs go with various meats and veggies).

Alright kids that’s all for now. Stay warm.
