I actually think it tastes remarkably like beer. The problem is, it doesn't feel like beer as it's going down, so there's a mental disconnect that happens.

Today I learned that there is such a thing as The Royal School of Needlework. I did not know that before.

The other day I learned that NASA found a HUGE frozen lake of CO2 buried deep at the south pole on Mars. And while this is fascinating enough, in and of itself, what kind of freaked me out a little, was learning that a couple of billion years ago, Mars was pretty much like earth! I do not want to imagine that earth will ever become as uninhabitable as Mars, even if the possibility of that isn't for billions of years. Yikes!

I learned that Future Pro Goalie School is awesome. They gave a free clinic at our rink and it was most excellent. Shame it's $650 for the weeklong summer camp (non residential)

Newly sharpened skates are sharp.

Hector didn't put his skates away properly on Saturday and they were rusty. He came out to tell me 20 minutes before ice time (we get there 45 minute before because goalies need that amount of time to pad up....) So I got them sharpened and then helped him pad up in 5 minutes flat... and got two bleeding cuts and a scratch into the bargain. little shit. And the one on my finger really fucking hurts when i use the finger and has a huge chunk of skin hanging out. It was gushing at one point. Worrying other parents. but time was too short for me to stop to mop...

"Give Blood, Play Hockey" is not supposed to refer to the moms

sorry about your finger!

i learned today that 150 torque pounds on a panel mounting plate nut is a little tooooo excessive. twisted that fkr right off! now that panel was taken back to the shop by disgruntled workers (at me of course) to be fixed. not an easy fix. all mounting plates (the plates you mount the equipment to like i did here a month or so ago. anyway, i fucked up. made a mistake. funny thing is the super wasn't even mad at me. said, eh, it happens. then later i learned that with my new klein wire cutter/stripper/pliers tool that when you pinch your palm while trimming back a wire to re-teminate? it hurts. what's more is it locks when squeezed. what's worse is you have to squeeze the grip tighter to unlatch the lock. then i learned what way NOT to go home! what a day.
