Patrick Kane

Patrick Kane knows how to read

Before I get to my awesome day, here's what robi0688 shared with me last night:

The color drained from Patrick Kane's face when he was confronted with the knowledge of how he has spent part of his offseason after helping the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup.

It was his mother, Donna, who caught the 21-year-old in the act — of reading a book.

While the fourth installment of the "Twilight" series isn't exactly Tolstoy, the image of Kane in the bedroom of his Buffalo childhood home, curled up with a book instead of carousing on the streets of his hometown, is fairly startling.

"Ohhhh," Kane said with a laugh after regaining his composure. "She would throw me under the bus like that. I watched the first three movies and was really interested … so I decided to read the fourth book. I kind of snuck it in there, and she walked in a couple of times with me reading the book. I tried to hide it, but it wasn't happening.

I like how whoever wrote this just kind of states matter-of-factly that Kane is a sleazemeister. And stupid. ♥ Light of my life, man.

It was really sunny and warm yesterday morning so I went to the beach and plotted fic, which got me thinking about Michigan in the summer, which made me re-read Maybe in Michigan Too, which made me CRY AT THE BEACH (but only a little), but feel pretty good overall. I went and watched the waves and let them wash over my feet, which was nice but remember this is a Northern California beach and the water is always cold. ;)

And then I forced myself to go over to a friend's place to watch the Superbowl even though I was feeling lazy and antisocial. This is part of my recent campaign to force myself to do things that I kind of dread but enjoy while I'm doing them. Like exercise. I'll be sleepy/tired/nauseous but I make myself do it and it always feels good during and after. Trying to apply that to other parts of my life.

Spotted: A Bernie reading my LJ. I only know this from using the LJ stalking tools, she didn't respond to any of my messages or anything. I take this as a sign that nothing untoward has happened to her?

Phil Kessel is a dirtbag and so is his mom!

So Kessel's been in the news lately and Joolzie told me this morning that JMFJ had called Kessel a dirtbag, and I was like... wha?

Anyway, here's the dirtbag thing:

So then I became really curious because... what could he have done to make JMFJ call him a dirtbag? I mean, one of his friends is Patrick Kane. :P And then I did more digging, and uhh, it's possible that it's Crosby-related.

Basically, Kessel's MOM used to heckle Crosby really badly when he played at Shattuck-St. Mary's.

Okay, so ignoring the JMFJ/Crosby (which I somehow did on my first read-through), basically Kessel's mom is psycho. Seriously, how could you do that to a FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD KID??? Also, Crosby was much cooler when he was a person. :P
