FIGURE SKATING

+ One of my favorite skaters, Mirai Nagasu, is not going to Sochi despite placing third at Nationals and I am quite bitter about it. This is why I'm so disillusioned with this sport. My heart breaks for her because she was the only one that did not fall on her long program and yet she was passed over for a fetus that has never been to an international competition. I'm not saying the fetus did not work hard. I'm saying if TBTB made exceptions for Ashley Wagner to go, even thought SHE fell in her long program and came in FOURTH, what was the difference with Mirai?? Arrggh this sport. It makes me so crazy.

+ OTOH I discovered Jason Brown who IS going and is SUCH A DELIGHT I can't even. Here is his long program set to an Irish reel which he skates whilst wearing a sparkly green shirt. Seriously A DELIGHT. I haven't seen an audience this invested since Johnny Weir in his cherub curls, White Swan days.



+ Hockey has, however, ruined me to a point. I was sitting there through ANOTHER weighty, TERRIBLY DEEP AND PROFOUND long men's program (not Jason's) and I was all 'FACEPLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANT SO SLOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW' AAAARRGGGGH I'M MEEELLLLTTTTIIINNGGGGGG Oh! College hockey! Who are these people? Where are they from? Is that program over? *flip channel flip channel* lol

HOCKEY

+ I will take this opportunity to say, to whomever is still reading this, that this is is not going away soon, this hockey thing. I don't think it is. I am SMITTEN with players, and the league, and every day I find something hilarious or awesome and beautiful about them both, so. If you find yourself scrolling scrolling scrolling past the men in bulky uniforms, beards, and missing teeth, and really want to de-friend, I understand. I realize I've been kind of one-note like only someone who has found a new fandom can be.

Even tho I don't de-friend people for finding new shiny. Go on with your new shiny! Find happiness with your new shiny! My whole FL has fucked off to SG1? Vaya con dios! I'm going to squee about Generation Kill/Supernatural/American Idol? Yay for you! But that is just ME. I understand! :-)

Eh, I'm just kidding. I'm mostly don't de-friend people because I can't be arsed to click more than once LOLLLLL.

+ Both my teams are struggling right now. Poor bbs. I can't BELIEVE how long a hockey season is. I mean 82 games, holy shit. Makes me side-eye football players, let me tell you. I keep sending them virtual, good luck vibes.The Hawks did win their last game, though. Even if Kaner scored on his own goal BWHAHA oh babe. He is never living that down. I Googled him yesterday (as one does) and the first twelve links were PATRICK KANE SCORES ON OWN GOAL. At least he can laugh about it. That's one of the things I truly love about him: he's just HAPPY. He's a happy PERSON. How far I've come from my fascination with broken, angsty boys and their dysfunction. I mean, I still love me an angsty man (see: Mathers, Marshall) but I did not realize how utterly wonderful the sight of Kaner's smile could be. Oh, really, ahestele, you say? HIS SMILE LET ME SHOW YOU IT:

AKA gratuitous Kaner pix appreciation post BECAUSE REASONS I CAN! :-D

That look is known as 'the fond eyes' and they REALLY ARE. It's a THING he does he looks at Kaner.

JAMIE BENN

That is actual steam coming off Jamie Benn in practice

I'm just gonna leave that right there.

I really adore that he can look like an apple-cheeked, wide-eyed kid and he is pretty soft-spoken in interviews and then he ups and does this:



Did you all see the look on his face right before the punches started flying??? That ain't no Bambi. And that is Joe Thornton, captain of the San Jose Sharks, he of the now infamous 'dick out, stroking it' quote, and generally one scary mother. And there Jamie is, shucking off gloves, pushing back his hair all, 'Okay, beauty. Let's DANCE.'

Jamie has FACETS AND LAYERS OKAY.

+ Still kind of adore Phil Kessel and Tyler Bozak. Because reasons. :-)

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

+ I went through a long WNBA phase when the Houston Comets were one of the city's teams. We won a couple of titles and I loved watching women's basketball. Since the asshat owner sold the team (like he sold our hockey team to Wisconsin, asshat) I've kind of fallen off because I'm not intrinsically a basketball fan.

However, I found this on tumblr and it is

I'M 'SHIPPING YOU LADIES SO HARD!!! My favorite is the guy wearing glasses in the background of the first gif who is all, '...wait. What?' :-DDDD

TV WHAT I AM WATCHING NOW

+ Sleepy Hollow- Hello kickass sisters of color! Actual sisters, even, though the other kind, too. Hi Orlando Jones, you crazy, fourth-wall-breaking-National treasure, you. Hello, pretty Ichabod. Really, this show is made for me.

+ Elementary- Joan and Sherlock just keep getting better. I could watch them all day.

+ Big Bang Theory- Always

+ Lots and lots of hockey. The Dallas Stars on TV and the Hawks online.

LIFE

+ I'm kind of stressed $ wise so I think I am escaping into hockey and fic. There are worst things.

+ I am reading a graphic novel called CARDBOARD and it is really amazing. I don't know how it ended up in the KIDS side since it's kind of heavy, but still, exemplary writing and artwork.

+ D joined the YMCA for free because she belongs to AARP. She wheedled until I joined (ya'll can stop laughing I CAN HEAR YOU *points to YOU) but I dunno. It is kind of a lot per month and I know I NEED to but logistically speaking, with an hour on the park and ride, and me still doing most of the cooking (because I like to cook and I'm big on working with your strengths and D's cooking is not really one of hers), I don't know when I will go. I guess my days off?

+ I cannot get coverage for the Saturday of Memorial day this year so I will only be going to Friday and Sunday of Comicpalooza. *sad face* Probably no chairing any panels for me if I only have two days to go.

I know I had more but I must away!

In closing, winter weather has gone and it is muggy and barely cold NOOOOOOOO. *clutches winter* I was born in the wrong damn part of the country.

Talk at ya'll later!
