Hockey and Fruit

It's been a while since i have posted but, in my defense, things have been crazy.

******Hockey's Up First******

As excited as I was for the second round of the playoffs, I am equally un-excited for the conference finals.

Penguins beat the Capitals in seven games.
Carolina beat the Bruins in seven games.
Detroit beat Anaheim in seven games, and
Chicago beat Vancouver in six.

That means that this next round will be super boring! The Wings will stop Chicago's magical run. They are the defending champions and will be back in the finals again.

And, the Penguins will stop Carolina's magical run. They played the Red Wings last year in the finals and will be back there again.

So....no surprises and the same match up as last year. Hmm, kinda boring.

That being said, I think the Pens are better than last year and will really challenge Detroit. As for me, I am rooting for a Penguin Stanley Cup.

Cubie, now ex-cubie as she has moved to a quiet part of the office, had to listen to me blab endlessly about the two things I wanted to see in Hawaii: lava and a pineapple plant. As you may remember, i saw neither (did i tell you about the damn rainbows though? yes, yes i did) and was a little bummed about it.

Today she brought me one...wanna guess which?

My very own Pineapple Plant! I promptly named him Don Quixote because pineapples were introduced to Hawaii by Spainish sailors.

Thanks Cubie! Double thanks for not bringing me hot lava!

Happy Friday to you all!

Please don't anyone believe her: she does not blab endlessly. Instead she tells the most engaging stories and she makes the work day delightful. - x-Cubie
