probably from about lamppost to lamppost. good thing nobody could see me being an idiot. i don't think anybody uses those stairs. but it's worth it cause you get this view:



of course it never looks like that. you know the fog and all that. and if i could fall with the slow-burning intensity of a Samuel L. Jackson, then i'd do it all the time.

Beer flavoured cookies would be cool. Speaking of cookie flavoured beer though, is there such a thing that exists nowadays? Given the fact that there are so many kinds and flavours of beer available nowadays, you would think so....yes?

But yes I will fill you guys in about my freezer mystery. For what it's worth, I just had a glass of vodka an hour ago and everything was fine when I took my bottle out of the freezer.

More to come at 11 stayed tuned.....

Jack Gilbert the great poet, passed away on monday. he grew up in East Liberty and went to Pitt. he published very rarely (something like four collections in 40 years) but he won or was nominated for all the major poetry prizes and was hugely influential. here's a sample of his work:

Quote:
A city of brick and tired wood. Ox and sovereign spirit.
Primitive Pittsburgh. Winter month after month telling
of death. The beauty forcing us as much as harshness.
Our spirits forged in that wilderness, our minds forged
by the heart. Making together a consequence of America.
The fox watched me build my Pittsburgh again and again.
In Paris afternoons on Buttes-Chaumont. On Greek islands
with their fields of stone. In beds with women, sometimes,
amid their gentleness. Now the fox will live in our ruined
house. My tomatoes grow ripe among weeds and the sound
of water. In this happy place my serious heart has made.
from The Great Fires: Poems 1982-1992.

The fact that that offside Briere goal in Game 1 ended up counting and sparking the Criers comeback and eventual series win, will never stop getting me furiously angry.

I still say that had that goal not been allowed (and we all know it shouldn't have), we would have won that series.

Meh. I don't know about that, so many parts of the system were atrocious. It's really quite obvious, looking back, that Michalek wanted out before the po's started.
So many things to pick on, but nevermind that. It's in the past.

That was the worst ref'd series I have ever seen in my life. There were several other highly questionable calls that went against the Pens as well that all seemed to have disastrous effects. Refs waited until the Pens were down 3-0 to start evening things up. I'm sure that comes across as whining, but I don't really care. The Pens were DOMINATING the Flyers early in the series and the Comcast Flyers were clutching & grabbing just to keep from gettting blown out. The blown calls just put an exclamation point on the refs' incompetence.

Michalek was our best D-man by far in that series. Not sure what to make of your criticism there?

Yeah I agree (well him and Nisky). Maybe Michalek wasn't a great fit and wanted out, but he was solid in that series.

The movie?

I watched it last night. I've been sitting on the BluRay for a month and finally got around to it. I forgot how much I love Wes Anderson.

Those Guinness Draught cans are beyond delicious. I'm addicted to drinking them now.

I might meander down to one of the Irish pubs here this weekend and check out their draft beer selection/try a pint of Guinness on tap.

I haven't seen Moonrise Kingdom or Darjeeling Limited yet. I absolutely love his other movies, so I don't know why I haven't gotten to them. Probably because my wife isn't a huge fan.

I am not a huge Wes Anderson fan, but I think Moonrise Kingdom was my favorite new movie this year.

Darjeeling is okay, but didn't really do anything for me. The Fantastic Mr. Fox was much better, but easily forgotten (which kinda shocked me considering I loved Dahl as a kid and I'm still a total geek for stop-motion animation).

Moonrise...it's his best since The Royal Tenenbaums and definitely a return to form. I'd say it's my favorite movie this year, but that phrase is meaningless since I think it's the only movie I've seen actually released this year.

I will have to see it. Tenenbaums is towards the top of my all time favorites, so that is a very welcome comparison.

I guess I am the only person on the planet who doesn't much care for The Royal Tenenbaums? I know one of my ex's was devastated to learn that I wasn't a fan (it was the only film she owned). I was just left with one of those 'why does anyone do anything in this film' reactions.
