This and that

I have returned!

Well, I returned 2 days ago, but this is how long it's taken to muster up the energy to post. I'm sleeping at Pacific time and waking up at Eastern time. :( Stuff about the trip is forthcoming (in a post that shall be titled The Saga of Tom Holy) but the summary for now is that it was fun, Germans are scary and Alexei Semenov wears Jimmy Choos.

tersa and I spent most of the trade deadline tizzy on an airplane so we got almost all the big news at once. I laughed hysterically upon hearing that Hal Gill went to Pittsburgh. Then I laughed even more hysterically about Marian going to Pittsburgh (for fake!world reasons). While on a plane full of people. :P

Trade deadline day is always exciting and bittersweet. My refrain this year is that Doug Wilson made good hockey deals and that really makes me feel a lot better. I love Davey, but he wasn't getting regular playing time here so now he gets the opportunity to. And Bernie. He looked so amazing his rookie season with us. And he did again at various points later on, but he never put together the same stretch of great games that he did back then. Marleau/Michalek/Bernier is the last line that I truly loved (kind of hard to develop feelings when lines get switched up as much as they do on our team :P) and Torrey Mitchell's line is growing on me steadily, but sometimes that line would make me cry.

Speaking of crying, I was watching NHL on the Fly and they were showing highlights of Bernie's goals. Usually Jeanerette drives me nuts, but I found his excitement at least somewhat appropriate for those calls. :P It makes me so happy that he had a great first game, and he seemed really excited before and after the game. I always thought of the Sabres as a French Canadian kind of place (for no particular reason) so I hope he will fit in there.

Performer of the Night! *sniffle*

For everyone else saddened by trades, I hope they end up being good for your team (unless your team is Nashville), because that does make it a little bit better. (For me, anyway).

Still have not caught up on LJ yet. Some of you have done very naughty things while I was away. I approve!

And I just realized watching those highlights again that he's playing with another #9. *weeps more*

I wanted to tell you, there are fairly recent KNBR interviews with Randy, Drew and Doug Wilson (the last 2 are post-trade deadline).

Alexei Semenov wears Jimmy Choos.


He was walking around with a Jimmy Choo shopping bag! I almost died of laughter.

BTW I liked the Wachovia Center! The hat trick wall is neat. It was the coldest building we were in on the trip! Or possibly that's because we were so close to the ice.

I laughed hysterically upon hearing that Hal Gill went to Pittsburgh.


and ... those germans are FIERCE!

*giggle* Mostly I couldn't believe it had actually happened!

*hugs* I did want to tell you I'm sorry about Colby, though.

*smish* you make me smile

that is all

Oh god, has Marian injured himself??? Was the prospect of playing with Petr that terrifying? Also, is he going off to "rehab" with Marty?

Yay your back! Now the real trouble starts=) Just kidding=)

Germans are scary and Alexei Semenov wears Jimmy Choos.
- Haha, wonder if their is a size big enough=)

Can't wait for your recap!!

Sad to see Marian go=( Although some tell me Colby and Erik have some good skills to bring so hopefully they will work out well.

It looked like he was going to go at the end of the season anyway, so at least the Thrashers got some return for him. He helped the team reach the playoffs for the first time and got to be an All-Star with the game in Atlanta, so there were some good times. :)

I just realized that I distantly liked Bernier, and now I have to distantly hate him a little. Awww. Although if he befriends Jason Pominville, maybe he will get to know Vermette! And then they can turf Pominville out of the picture. Yes, I have it all figured out.

Welcome back, is my point. :P

He is already friends with Pominville!!! All vaguely French people know each other.

Thanks! :D

I am! Whee!!! Also, I love your icon.

Welcome back! :D

I caught the last few minutes of the Sabres' game along with the post-game interviews and highlights and all that. I may or may not have gotten weepy. :P But it's for the best, right?

Thanks! He hasn't gone on a tear since that first game, but it was so nice to see him do well. :)

THE SAGA OF TOM HOLY, I cannot wait.

We traded Ruutie, which means I never got to write finnish sausage fic about him. :/ But otherwise, our deadline was pretty quiet.

Poor Tuomo, never quite lived up to his potential, I think (too busy being hurt). Hey, are you coming back to San Francisco for the summer?
