AGAIN! My beloved Pens are back to back Stanley Cup Champions!

It's hard to do, hasn't been done for almost 20 years. \o/

The Stanley Cup finals start tonight. My beloved Pens have home ice for the finals and game time is 8 pm.

LET'S GO PENS!!!

Win or lose, doesn't matter, because 6 months ago I didn't even think they'd make the playoffs. Now look at them go! Sullivan is the coach of the year, no matter who wins the actual award.

In other news, I loved Civil War and disagree with most of the criticisms of it. Tony was not too much of a dick, imo, and there was just the right amount of Spiderman (altho I still don't get why he had to be in the movie, but...) and the humor was much more natural than Avengers Ultron (or whatever it was called).

I also really enjoyed X Men Apocalypse. In fact, I think it's the best X Men movie yet. It didn't bore me at all, which is more than I can say for the other ones, lol. And Sophie Turner was terrific.

ETA: I didn't even realize Oscar Isaac was playing the villain until I saw the end credits. Wow, he was great, and so different from Poe!

I've spent the weekend Dad sitting, so I'm not really celebrating Memorial Day.

But this coming weekend is Philly Wizard World, where I'll be meeting Tom Hiddleston, Stanley Tucci, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan (I am NOT a Chris Evans fan, sorry) as well as William B. Davis and hopefully Dominic Cooper (first ep of Preacher was awful, but I'll give it a few more goes).

And it's also Awesome Con! Going Sunday with my Peter Capaldi VIP Pass! I'll try to fit in other guests if I have time :)

I guess that's pretty good compensation for not having a US Sherlock Con, lol, or going to London.

Hope you're all having a great Monday!

THE PENS HAVE ELIMINATED THE DETESTED WASHINGTON CAPITOLS IN SIX GAMES!

ONTO THE EASTERN CONFERENCE FINALS V. TAMPA BAY!

LET'S GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


\o/
ailurophile6: (yay)
on my day off, on which I cleaned house and shoveled snow :)

First, got a second interview at the job I interviewed for on Friday.

It's not ideal, BUT, I would only work every other weekend (one shift) and it has much better benefits than my current job.

It pays a little less, but instead of 10 paid days (no sick days, no holidays), this new job has FOUR WEEKS paid vacation (I've never had that much paid vacation!) and SIX sick days. The health insurance is less expensive as well.

I chose the midnight to 8 am shift so I would have evenings and weekends free, since in general the midnight shift has less pressure and that's one of the things I'm looking for at this point in my life, lol. There is also the possibility of an 8 am to 4 pm shift, which would be fine as well.

Best thing about it is I would not be chained to a desk/phone and have every minute of my day micromanaged!

Second, I filed my federal tax return and I'm getting over $1100 back \o/ That's more than I've gotten for a long time! I'm going to use it to pay my real estate/school taxes and my flight to Chicago :)

After the second interview I'll know if this job is something I can be comfortable doing and if I take it I'll post more about it.


Oh, and did anyone watch the Pro Bowl last night and think it was completely ridiculous?! I couldn't even choose a team to cheer for and seven or more turnovers?! (I stopped counting at 7!). SO STUPID. NEVER DO THAT AGAIN, NFL.

I get to watch the Pens game tonight! YAY!

Sports!

One of my favorite things :)

Yesterday Peyton defeated Satan to get to the Superbowl \o/ and Seattle defeated the hated 49ers to get there!

Go Broncos! I do love Peyton :D

And I just found out that I'm going to the Pens game tonight, with my brother in law \o/ Last year for Father's Day, my nephew Sean bought his dad a partial season ticket package, which I paid for (at the time because he didn't have a credit card). So, as a return favor, I get to go to a game :)

I get to see my beloved Pens in person. It's been a few years since I've gone to a game, so I'm excited!

My job continues to be ok, but the micro managing is killing me. I'm still looking for something else, because sometimes I just can't wait to get out of there. There's just so much information to learn and so much pressure to have expert stats even though we've only been on the phones a month. However, they keep telling me I'm doing well, even though I don't feel like I am.....ugh

It pays the bills, and as long as they don't fire me (lol, they're trying to figure out why people keep quitting, they can't fire anyone at this point) I'll have to stick it out until I find something else...

Happy MLK Day everyone! Hope you're all doing well :)

Eyecandy!

While I impatiently wait for the Eastern Conference Final to start!!

The guys filming season three :D

(talk about waiting impatiently, LOL!)

Three weeks ago in NJ I purchased this autographed picture, which arrived today:

001

I don't know if I will ever meet either of these two wonderful men, but if I do, I won't worry about autographs, just photos with them ;)

I'm very happy to have this!

And if the Pens win tonight, they advance to round three, the Eastern Conference Finals, one step away from the Stanley Cup Finals.

LET'S GO PENS!!
ailurophile6: (boldly going nowhere)
So much going on right now, I'm just constantly hyped up LOL

Tomorrow I'm going to New Jersey for the Supernatural convention. Hurray for 4 day weekends \o/

Monday I'm going to see Iron Man 3

Star Trek Into Darkness comes out in a couple weeks, and I absolutely cannot wait!!

And the Pens are the top seed in the East. HOCKEY PLAYOFFS!! Best time of the year!

I need to go to bed early tonight, but I know I will not sleep, lol

I won't even talk about Sherlock filming right now, my head cannot handle it :)
ailurophile6: (sherlock and john phones)
Not sure if this is real, but it's awesome :)

Also, the playoffs started, and the Pens won game 1 handily :D

My Pittsburgh Penguins wrapped up the number one seed in the Eastern Conference today by beating Boston 3-2 \o/


This means home ice throughout the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

BEST TEAM IN THE EAST :D

LET'S GO PENS!!!!!!!

Hockey playoffs are my favorite time of year!

Third shift and 90 seconds into his comeback, Sidney Crosby scores his first goal of the season and first in over 10 months, since his concussions.

LET'S GO PENS!

GO SIDNEY GO!

:D

ETA: Five minutes into the third period, Sid has 2 goals and 2 assists for 4 points and a 5-0 Pens lead.

SCREW ALL THE HATERS. HE IS STILL THE BEST FUCKING HOCKEY PLAYER ON THE PLANET.

I'm so sick of people who complain about how much attention he gets. THIS IS WHY, morons. NO OTHER PLAYER in the NHL does what he does.

GO SID!

The Steelers took down the Bungles, and the Ravens laid an egg in Seattle.

Which puts the Steelers at the top of the AFC pile again :D

\o/

I timed my LA trip perfectly. The Steelers and Pitt have byes this weekend! I'm hoping to catch the Pens game on Saturday on my I <3 Radio app.

I love this time of year!

This is my favorite time of year :)

Football season is under way; hockey season starts this week (the Pens are undefeated in the preseason and look great!).

Today I'm going to consecutive hockey games for nephews E and S \o/ and nephew Z is home from college for the weekend! :)

So far, Supernatural has been excellent. Really enjoyed the first 2 episodes, although it makes me sad that Castiel is gone for now :(

Fringe continues to be excellent and creepy!

Watched the whole episode of Person of Interest this week. That's a pretty good show! I really like it.

I also enjoyed Terra Nova. I'll be watching that again.

I'm kind of disappointed with Unforgettable (standing around with your mouth hanging open is not a good look, Poppy) and Prime Suspect (please, please, please get rid of the stepkid storyline!!!).

Already stopped watching Secret Circle. May stop watching Ringer. Glee's second episode was not very good either :(

Most importantly, though. WTF HAVEN? That was the stupidest ending. No cop would be taken in by obviously planted evidence like that. Jeesh. But otherwise, an excellent episode. The show keeps getting better :)

And they're having a Christmas episode?! LOL Can't wait to see that, omg.

Best news of all: my younger sister is going to be transferred back to the local hospital LTSR unit and if she makes enough progress, she will be discharged back to supportive housing. She's been in treatment for months since her schizophrenia meds stopped working properly \o/

Hope you all have a good weekend!

Watched the season premiere of Glee last night. Was not impressed. Definitely not up to par with previous seasons, but I'll keep watching for Sue :)

I am watching Ringer, mostly because there's nothing else on at 9 on Tuesday that I want to see; I'm not sure that I even like it. It seems badly edited, for one thing. I guess I'll keep watching until I completely lose interest.

LOVED the homage to Desperate Housewives on Body of Proof!! Dana Delany rocks :D

I recorded Unforgettable but probably won't be able to watch it until this weekend.

Tonight, I am watching the Pens pre season game v. Detroit \o/ HOCKEY!!

Then, the season premiere of L&O SVU.

Tomorrow, more preseason hockey, then the premiere of Prime Suspect.

I'll probably record that teenage witch show? Secret Circle? ONLY because of Gale Harold, though.

Not too many new shows that interest me, but that's ok. Hockey and football keep me occupied, lol.

WOO HOO

The Steelers are on their way to 11-4, handily beating Carolina \o/

And the Pens gritted out a win in the SO v the Caps




DAMN, he's good! Sid's scoring streak is at 23 games. Best player in the world.

:D

I'm off tomorrow, going to a Christmas open house, and maybe to my brother's to sing happy birthday to my sister-in-law.
