bright college days

When I was at university, I occasionally played floor hockey. One day I was "practicing" in our apartment (ie, I was shooting the plastic puck randomly around the living room). After I had hit my brother and our roommate a couple of times, my brother indicated his preference for me doing that somewhere else. Roommate didn't say anything at all, until I hit him again. Then he picked up the puck, walked out the patio door, and threw the puck as far as he could (over several fences and into some trees). Then he sat down. I felt his position was eloquently stated.

like your roommate's style. (must be a big hockey fan like me...)

btw, changing my blogger status to beta did the trick (problems were happening at work too) -- we're now in sync. yay! (i'd say you owe me for banning non-bloggers. this has been a big pain in the a** :)). actually, thx should go to alan for figuring this out.

Thanks for the tip si !!

I was having the same problem the last couple of days. I had some really brilliant comments that would have changed the world as we know it but was not able to get through. Now I can’t think of what it was that I wanted to say. Oh well. I am now a beta person too.

Jenika, if you really want to cheer yourself up, read Bryan's archives. You will be rolling on the floor in laughter

Being the hero of this blog post (aka Hockey puck tossing roommate) i thought I would add my 2 cents. I remember the obnoxiousness of Byran flinging pucks around the apartment aiming for important boy parts and thinking if I ever wanted children in my future the puck needed to go. Now if I would have known a thing about Hockey at the time and if I would have gotten Byran's brothers help I think we should have pulled his hockey jersey over his head and punched him a couple times in true hockey fashion. Ahh the good old days....

ah, extrem4, the truth comes out. and the mental picture of you guys pulling bryan's jersey over his head and pummeling him is one to savor. :)
