hockey is a subject you all care about deeply

I went to the game tonight! My dad's birthday is on the 13th which means playoff tickets are a great gift... if we make the playoffs.

We were down 2-0 after about seven minutes and I was ready to come home and make a sulky post about how them playing "I Am The Doctor" in the arena during warm-up was the most exciting part. (Somewhere, the BBC is super pressed!)

BUT THEN WE WOKE UP CAME BACK IN THE SECOND AND TIED IT. AND THEN I BASICALLY DID NOT BREATHE AGAIN UNTIL WE WON IN OVERTIME.



It's been a LONG time since I went to a hockey game and even longer since I went to a playoff game that we won, and in overtime !!!!!! so I am now psyched and a bit hoarse. It's possible I literally hopped up and down on the spot screaming when we won.

lol the funniest part though was having sweetcherrytree text me that the Pens were up 9-3. WHAT? LOLLLLLL. I'm super pressed that the 3 series I'm following all played on the same night. But LOL PENGUINS, WTF?

In conclusion, go Sens go.

ETA: I FEEL LIKE MANY OF YOU MAY NEED TO REFERENCE THIS POST ABOUT CANADIANS AND HOCKEY.

I. So it is The Great One's birthday today. If you do not know what I mean by that you are probably not Canadian. If you know what I mean by that and aren't Canadian, high-five.



goldy_dollar is probably saying, "you just wrote that so you could post the gif!" And she would be correct. But I mean, it's a great gif.

II. So I've been reading through more of this RadioTimes thing, and a lot of the quotes about the old companions are really interesting and sort of sad; a significant number of the quotes from the actresses are about how they left the show because the role was limited, had no development, was objectifying, etc. None of this is really news, to be honest, but fandom often bangs on about how the old companions were Proper Companions, and "omg why was Zoe not higher on the Radio Times poll she was the smartest ever!!!" etc. Uh, yeah.

III. Today after my transcription test (that is, the prof says words in some random language and you write down the IPA/International Phonetic Alphabet transcription of those words) I heard some girl complaining about the test to her friend, saying, "What was he speaking? Parseltongue?" lol lol, four for you, random girl.

30 female characters meme: girlcrush edition

I. Went to a hockey game last night with my dad and goldy_dollar. It was shameful. But I am posting this anyway because when I got home and talked to bazcat89 and said ‘after the hockey game we went out for dessert’ her reply was ‘OMG YOU ACTUALLY WENT TO A HOCKEY GAME LIRL LIRL LIRL OMG’ so I guess I don’t document my hockey love enough or something? SO HERE IT IS.

It is not getting much love from me at the moment though. Omg Sens, only you would give Price a shutout.

III. So, I’m pretty bored, but I don’t really have anything to post about. So I think I am going to continue that 30 Women Meme.
