Mere puffery, not materially misleading.

Tennis, baseball, hockey, genre fiction: a few of my favorite things.

“You’re born with a ton of fucks to give, so you spend them like a kid with a credit card. You give fucks about your friends, about your grades, about your fashion sense, about strangers’ opinions. You give way too many fucks about way too many things. You have so many. Then, as you get older, you have maybe 10 fucks per month, so you learn to budget them. You allocate fucks to family and career, but there aren’t enough fucks to give to the newest fads. Oh, someone at work has something they need my help with that’s outside my job title? I’ll do my best to allocate some fucks, but this month is pretty tight. Then, as you get even older, you’re down to 1-2 fucks per month, and those fucks are pretty damn precious. You give them to your family and your hobbies and your job, and that’s kinda it. It’s not your fault – fucks expire too quickly. I would’ve liked to save my fucks from when I was younger but I can’t. Then, you hit fuck insolvency. You’re getting like 1 fuck a year, and you have to make it last. So you go without, and even previously fuck-worthy things, you just can’t give a fuck. Some people run out really quickly, Some people have a fuck trust fund that pays out a decent amount even into old age. But at some point, the fuck faucet runs completely dry and you’re out of fucks to give. It’s just basic Fuckonomics.” Unknown English Teacher (via swarthyvillain)

A pair of big personalities.

I have the broadcasting schedule open in one tab with GCL and my cable provider in two others. So I can decide how many games will be on NBCsn or NHLN, backing into which service is the better “bargain”. (Hint: neither is a bargain.)

How did this happen? I feel like my life has taken an unanticipated turn toward the strange.

Apparently this equation is extremely arcane. People AT THE BALLPARK asked me what it meant. Extended family members - people who love sports and play sports and with whom I’ve gone to baseball games - asked me what it meant.I was all :(

Miss Congeniality AU (one ll two) — Sidney Crosby and Geno Malkin are FBI agents, and they are investigating a bombing that’ll occur at the Mr. America pageant. Geno half jokingly proposes Sidney be the agent who goes undercover, which is an outrageous idea because though Sidney is one of the best agents in the field, he’s completely unpolished: he has long greasy hair, wears crocs to the office, owns nothing but stained and unfitted clothes, is missing teeth from an assignment gone awry last year, and refuses to shave his unprofessional facial hair.

The Bureau calls in the legendary Mario Lemieux to help polish Sidney up for the pageant. Sidney’s transformation shocks everyone, especially Evgeni, who may or may not be developing feelings for his long-time partner. Can Sidney save the day, win a crown, and score a boyfriend after this assignment?

The "Miss Congeniality" AU: that I desperately want someone to write.

Isn’t that from 2011? I thought they moved to skirts recently (http://penguins.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=64281) - or am I wrong? GO BACK to 2011 IF SO

The Pens’ ice crew ladies were definitely wearing skirts - cheerleader short skirts - at the two home games I went to last season.
