Habs vs. Sens! Now that should be a good drinking match. Do I go with Beau's (Ottawa) or Fin du Monde (Montréal)?
 
2013-05-02 09:44:12 AM  
Habs & Sens huh?  It's good to see that a Canadian team will make it to the second round this year...

/judging by the other Canadian teams' performance last night the winner of that series may be the only one
//Ducks jersey arrived yesterday - now I'm officially ready for the game tonight

I could take or leave either team  (although points to the Sens for hanging in this season...but I digress) but no losers in the beer choice!  Think I might go get me some Beau's for later...

/go Leafs!

Torts cracks me up and the Caps knocked out the Bruins last year, so go NY Tortarellas.


Blues looked good in Game 1, I hope they can pick up where they left off.

Not so much rooting for the Sens to win as I'm rooting for the Habs to lose.

Don't particularly care about the Ducks/Wings... Duck wings.... Mmmmmmmm.

Don't so much care about the Rangers/Caps game, other than hoping the Rangers lose. And, well....go Wings I suppose.

Good... Finishing up with my photo classes for the semester. Hoping I get a few classes over the Summer so I'm not completely broke. The ad agency I worked at for 7 years finally went under, so I'm planning my next moves... Probably grad school and then a professorship at the local community college I'm an adjunct at now. But we'll see. Kind of sick of the freelance thing... Steady job, union dues, set schedule all sound really nice right about now.

Well that sucks. I know of a company in Vancouver that's hiring a few web designers but somehow I doubt that'll be much help.

Heh... Thanks. I'm really leaning against anymore agency work, actually. It's soul sucking and I find it's a good way to stagnate as an artist and designer. If you're not a cubicle drone doing exactly what the art director and the design brief tell you to do, then you're essentially a salesman trying to woo new clients. In short, it's a racket.

Kind of liking the idea of academia... Been teaching digital photography part time for the last year and I love it. The students really challenge you and it forces me to keep learning and developing to keep up with them. I love being in the studio without having to worry about all the corporate bullshiat. Less money, but it's far more rewarding, especially when I can have a direct impact on a student and see that proverbial light bulb go off above their head.

You've got to do what you love man, I quit my web development job and took a job making around 1/3 the money but everyday is so much better now.

Except for today, when the damned fuel pump fails. At least I get to watch all the hockey!

Oh! I'll have to go check that email. :) And I haven't seen Holtby play in ages soooo...I'm sure the Holtby love will return with the playoffs.

I bought a friend NHL13 because he's getting into hockey, and forgot that he'd be going into it without knowing a single rule of hockey. I think it took him a few games to figure out the puck has to cross the blue line first. :D He's finally getting it tho. Now he's only losing games 8-1 instead of 17-2.

For Bertuzzi to come back in. Think he is sitting Tootoo to give a rest and see who he should replace in the coming games since these will be so physical.

I assume we will come back tonight over the Ducks, and this won't be a bad decision.
