I just wanted to post some eye-candy for the day.

Now, how many months until hockey season starts back up?
We aren't quite sure how it got in but we are hoping he didn't get a chance to tell his other scorpion buddies about our house.
As of Thursday, the Might Ducks of Anaheim are no longer mighty - the owners decided to give the Ducks a new image and (slightly) different name.
Besides, I think Corey Perry (my favorite rookie!) looks good in it, so it can't be that bad!

Dan is my hero! Now his next project will be extending the bed the other way - along the back of the fence. And no, I'm not evil for mentioning that. Dan was the one who brought it up first! I was just being a good wife and agreeing with my husband.

Game 7 of the Stanley Cup was last night - Edmonton Oilers vs Carolina Hurricanes - and the Hurricanes pulled it out and won! YAY!
I'm especially happy since I was pulling for the Hurricanes. The Oilers beat out the Ducks in the last round, so I wanted to make sure the Oilers didn't win the Cup. Is that evil? I did feel a little sad when I saw some of the Oilers players after they lost. They looked crushed. But the Hurricanes where ecstatic, so that made me feel a bit better. After all, the 'Canes weren't supposed to do anything this season, much less win it all.
So congrats to the Hurricanes - and to rookie goalie Cam Ward, the first rookie goalie win the Conn Smythe Trophy (for the playoffs most valuable player).
It's not as sweet as a Duck win would have been, but I'll take it.
I know when I got my eyes zapped, I was seeing about 20/30 the next day, 20/25 the Monday after and 20/15 one week after. After abusing my eyes through a couple hundred books and many hours of computer time, I'm 20/20 a year and a half later. Pretty cool, huh?
Lasers are cool!
Dan's print is of koi (Japanese carp) in blue, red, and yellow. It's really quite attractive. We put it over the entertainment center in the living room.
