Wednesday afternoon confessional

1. This time of year kills me. Hockey playoffs are here and, being a humble resident of Hockeytown, I am required to watch any and every Red Wings playoff game.

The bitch of this all is that the Red Wings play in the NHL’s Western Conference. Translation: their games are really, really late. Last night was a 10:00 pm start. Add that to the double overtime and my 6:30 am wakeup call? Please. A girl can only be so stupid. I went to bed after the first period, woke up at 1 am, flipped on the TV to watch the first overtime, after which I went to bed for good. I got the bad news this morning.

2. At work, there’s a mini soccer ball in the break room that I absolutely adore to screw around with while I’m waiting for my lunch to heat up. My juggling is practically back to what it was in high school! It is seriously way fun. I am giddy for approximately 17 minutes after I go into the break room to “heat up my lunch.”

3. Speaking of soccer: my outdoor team has its first scrimmage on Sunday. Wheee! Am so excited. I love, love, love playing outdoor. And it is so fun to be on a team with a bunch of really intelligent, successful girls who kick serious ass on the soccer field. Meg has agreed to be our goalkeeper again this year, with only one stipulation: that I drop $140 on a new pair of goalie gloves for her.

You totally know I did it.

4. It looks like Colin and I are kicking back into gear. All of a sudden, I’m seeing him all of the time and talking to him all of the time and – woah! – have we grown up here? It does seem different. He does seem to be trying harder. I have learned; I am maintaining skepticism and distance.

Haters, you’ll be happy to know that, because I cursed myself by writing this, things will fall apart tomorrow.

5. I really like pomegranate juice.
