      Chopin

      I know there is already a hockey thread, but I don't really see this fitting in there. The death of a player is a tragedy in all sports, not just the sport he played in.

      Courtesy of the Associated Press:
      "Latvian hockey players, officials, and fans were saddened Thursday after national star Sergei Zholtok died while playing in Belarus.

      Zholtok left the game between Riga 2000, the club he was playing for during the NHL lockout, and Dinamo Minsk about five minutes before it ended on Wednesday night. He went back to the locker room where he collapsed and died, Riga 2000 president Viesturs Kozioles told The Associated Press in Riga.

      Paramedics at the arena tried to revive him but were unsuccessful. Zholtok, who was known to have an irregular heartbeat, was 31."

      I know Andrew Brunette's family (A player for the Wild if you don't know), who were close with Zholi. Here's the sad part that the article doesn't tell you:

      Darby Hendrickson was playing with Zholi and Riga 2000, and was one of his best friends. He was the first one to come down the tunnel and find Zholi. He was still alive at the time. Darby kneeled down to see if Zholi was okay. Zholi looked up at him and said "Darby, don't leave me." Then he shut his eyes and died. Darby called Brunette's family that night and told them to tell everybody, and that's how I heard. So remember Zholi. And if you're interested in learning about the Sergei Zholtok Memorial fund, you can write to:

      ...suck! My wrist is stupid and decided to quit working, so I now wear a brace 2/3 of the way up my arm that immobilizes my wrist and thumb. I have to wear it for a week, and if its not better go see another doctor. Have you ever tried to do something (hell, anything) without the use of your wrist and/or thumb. Its almost impossible. Thank God its not my writing hand or I'd really be screwed on the table.

      So that's the update, and why I'm not posting in the forum today. Here are my current opinions:

      1. If its cold, it should snow dammit.
      2. There should not be fat-free butter. What the hell do you think its made of???
      3. If we were truly practicing abstinence Mr. President, why should we have four more years of Dick and Bush working together? Fuck you, ya mooley. (The students for Kerry Edwards sign in my window will not be taken down before New Year's, I promise you.)

    • Birthdays

      Birthdays are weird. Its just another day -- just so happens that its the one you were born on. I always feel like that until my birthday. People say happy birthday and I feel special. Yay. This one was especially good because I got taken out to dinner and all that jazz by the man of my choosing. :) Woo. The old wine and dine thing really works. So yay. Happy birthday to me....yesterday.

    • Testing

      Two tests and a lab in one day. Ugh. At least its done. The first test was really a quiz -- 7/10 is good enough for me. The second one was the second O.Chem exam of the semester. ....it went alright. I think. I know there are 10 points for sure that I messed up on. I couldn't draw an intermediate and explain why it was like it was. Whatev. I'll hope for the B, but be happy with the C. Won't find out until next week anyways.

      So yay! This week is done! Tomorrow won't be bad for classes, its Friday. Then its homecoming on Saturday, and working through my birthday. Hopefully I'll catch up on sleep.

      Go Red Sox. I can't believe I got to watch the Yankees skulk their way off their own field because another team had just made MLB history by coming back from an 0-3 deficit. That happens to be the only that has gone right today, but its something.

      My body's doing that "You need to sleep or I'm going to shut your ass down" thing. I'm going to be really sick really soon if I don't get some sleep. But I have two tests and lab tomorrow; so it looks like it is going to be an all-nighter for me. I got home from work in time to shower, watch the 9th of the game, and now start my homework. Or at least what I didn't get done skipping two classes to work on today. Dammit; I'm sorry I whine so much. Somebody feel free to kick me.

      I have a birthday? Since when?

      So its Homecoming Week at good ole SCSU. Just so happens that my 20th birthday is this Sunday as well. Quite a nice coincidence. I'm too damn busy to update this horribly often. I apologize to everyone I hold conversations with for not replying promptly. (Especially Servo. You do rock my woman box, man.) Okay, now back to my Organic Chemistry studying. Ugh.

      Well I suppose I'll give a general update. Two weeks ago, guys are fucktards because I get dumped. Take two tests, and absolutely kick their asses! (An A and a B) The perfect man breaks up with his girlfriend and starts cooking me lunch and giving me back massages. Playin' it cool for now. Peace kids.
