Can I just take a moment to start off by saying: "What the Hell Walking Dead? What the Hell!?". Seriously, that's some crazy shit... and now I have to wait until the fall?!  In this day and age of instant gratification these long breaks between seasons suck.  Should they have evolved with everything else in our life?

Speaking of instant gratification: my #firstworldproblem lately has been the fact that I have to watch TV show intros on Netflix.  The first one is fine, especially when it is the first one of a season, but after watching four episodes in a row it is a bit tedious to keep watching the same intro. Perhaps I should take this as a "You're watching to much freaking Netflix" sign, but I've been sick... so what else can I do?!

The Colorado Avalanche beat the St Louis Blues yesterday...  Backes hit MacKinnon, MacKinnon went down and Backes kept hitting him once he was down. Now, Backes hitting MacKinnon I am fine with. But a player that keeps hitting another player when he is down is one of my pet peeves. For those who know me, I loved Daniel Winnik on the Avs, we are talking one of my faves here... but even when he got in a fight and kept hitting his opponent when he was down I was beyond annoyed. This isn't me wanting to shit on a player, this is me shitting on an act.

There are many unwritten rules in hockey especially in the fighting code. One of those is that you stop hitting player when they are down. Ian Laperriere actually attempted to brace his fighting partner head/neck when they went down. At the end of the day these guys have families and loved ones at home. Sure, you want to win, and you want to beat that player to get the momentum for your team, but you don't want to hurt their daily life.

That being said, the Avs held their own and beat the Blues becoming the only team in the NHL thus far to have beat all 29 other teams.  The Avs have proved that they truly can beat anybody. What a turn around from the last few years. I don't believe for a second that it's all on Roy... but one can't deny the massive change that has occurred since he has taken the helm.

Sunday Faves

What I am loving right now:

Tales of Symphonia (for the PS3): Seriously, I have loved this game since it came out on the GameCube ten years ago. Last month is was released on the PS3 and you just know that I got it on the first day that I could. It is easily my favorite game.

Cough drops: because I'm sick. Ugh.

The Colorado Avalanche: It is so nice to be cheering on a team that rocks! After a few years of watching a team build potential, but not live up to it, it's fun to have something to cheer about.

My Avs day manicure: Yes, I did a manicure using the Avs burgundy, blue, white and silver. What? Like you are surprised?

My guitar: I have decided that I need to play my guitar at least a half hour four times a week. I am aiming to learn Finger Eleven's Paralizer. I don't know that it's the easiest song to learn, but I was told that the best way to truly learn the guitar is to pick a song you like and start there... so that's what I'll be doing. If you have any hints or tricks for me, please feel free to share!

Saturday wrap up!

As a hockey fan you take the awesome with the not so awesome. Awesome #1: John Mitchell played for the Colorado Avalanche today. After being turned into a human lawn chair a few games ago it was nice to see him be in the lineup again. Awesome #2: Mitchell scored! Wee-heee. Awesome #3 The Avs clinched a playoff spot. I cannot tell you how ridiculously happy this made me. The not awesome? Matt Duchene left within the first two minutes of the game after colliding with Jamie McGinn accidentally. Knee on knee hits scare the crap out of me, so I hope that it was as bad as it could be since he was out for the rest of the game this has potential to be terrible news for the Avs and their fans.

I'm fighting some sort of sickness, not getting much sleep because I keep coughing. And it sucks. I'm good sitting but when I try to lie down it sucks. Not a happy camper.

Someone posted on their Facebook about their expectations of being an adult and the reality of it. It reminded me that I never wanted to be a teenager because of a) boys and b) acne. Turns out I didn't get acne - please don't hate me but I probably got 5 pimples my entire high school career (and I'm probably over-estimating) and the boys weren't so bad after all. I did want to be an adult though. Because, you see, as a kid I hated naps. I even got in trouble in pre-kindergarden because instead of sleeping during nap time like all the other kids I would poke the kids sitting next to me until they talked, I'd close my eyes real quick and pretend I was asleep.  I got away with this for a few days before they caught on. I was determined that as an adult I wouldn't ever have to take naps, so that'd be awesome! HA! I love naps. Glorious, amazing naps!!  Ooops.

One of my friends is going through a pretty scary time health-wise and I'm definately keeping her in my thoughts. I have had some pretty scary things happen to me health-wise and I know little things can make a big difference. She doesn't know it yet (umm, hi if you are reading this please stop), but I have a little care package on it's way to her. It's nothing massive but just a little something of things I think she might like... I keep hearing that our candy is different than what is the USA so I thought I'd send some of those. My faves are Crunchie bars! I hope I remembered to put a few in for her. :o I also have an indie polish in there by favorite polish maker. Eat Sleep Polish is where it is at.
