Just Like Old Times
i swear when i was in high school it snowed at least 3 times a winter with at least one good 7-8" snowfall that would get us out of school for a week. not any more; we're lucky to get freezing drizzle these days but finally woke up to the white stuff today with a milder version of what the rest of the east coast got...nice. of course school is cancelled though the roads are completely clear.
over at MBV Music Ryan of the Catbird Seat is running a nice series on Merge and our 20 years, starting with our dormroom combo Bricks...
and over the weekend the Carolina Hurricanes, after a scintillating shootout win over the Sabres on Thursday night, put together one of the worst 3 periods i've ever seen, blowing a 3-1 lead to lose 5-3 to Atlanta. one of those games where you tune in and your team is up by a goal or two and you think "ah finally, a relaxing game i can have on in the background and just enjoy a win" and then it all goes wrong.
at least the next morning we got to see Katrina vanden Heuvel eat Karl Rove's lunch on ABC's This Week with George...regardless of the fact that he's evil, Mr. "Call me Karl" Rove has a TERRIBLE teevee presence: sputtering, takes everything personally and comes off basically who doesn't realize that the election is over and he and his peeps LOST. Vanden Heuvel was so ready for this opportunity (normally the round table is kind of nicey-nice) and crushed him (George Will was crushed already).
