One of the coolest things....

...that will happen around here is set for January 1st. The Sabres will be playing the Penquins in the second outdoor hockey game,(first one in the US...Edmonton being the home city in 2003) put on by the NHL. 74,000 people in The Ralph for an outdoor hockey game. Way cool!

Tickets went on sale this morning at 10:00. The event was sold out at 10:11. I guess they put out 34,000 tix for general sale. We got ours! Being season holders, Justin bypassed the line at the ticket office and went right over to Guest Services. The woman in the window said "how many you want?"...he says "40" hands over the cash, and voila!!..we're in. There's gonna be one hell of a tailgate party before this game. I'm giddy.

What the??????

I had to run into the mall this afternoon. Parked the car outside Penney's cuz I'm gonna dash thru their store to get where I'm going....and what are they doing in the center of the store???? Putting up friggin' Christmas trees and decorations!!! It's September eight-frigging-teenth!!! Halloween is, what, 6 or 8 weeks away??? Thanksgiving is 10 or 11???

Does it seem like every year the holiday prep starts earlier and earlier or what?

So..the monitor on the old 'puter got fried for some reason. Turned off my trusty friend the other night...Sunday I think it was, cuz of the nasty little thunder storm we were having. Next morning I go to power up..and NUTHIN out of the LCD. I hate when that happens.

On the bright side, it could have been a fried motherboard.

Brraawkkk Brawwkk brawk Braaaaaawwk

Offspring #3 and I went to the National Chicken Wing Festival yesterday afternoon. For the most part....YUM!! Neither one of us were big fans of the teriyaki or the 'jerk' sauces....and she had one of the 'hots' that was so hot we had to mosey over to the Chiavatta's stand to get a corn on the cob to put the fire lips out. There was a stand from NYC, if I remember correctly, that had a wing with asiago sprinkled on it...very tasty.

I do have to say however...of all the wings we ate, Anchor Bar's were the best...and rightfully so, I would think.!
