Typical Saturday for a single 20-something +hockey

by Anne

Friday was a nice reprise from hockey that meant anything. As much as I'd like to pretend I get work done during hockey games, it's not really true. I like to have my work open and occasionally will get a little bit of work done while I watch, but for the most part, I just watch the game.

Tonight the Sabres take on the Panthers and the Kings host the Islanders. However, tonight is the first night in a few weeks that I've been able to go out so I'm taking full advantage and subsequently will not be seeing much or any of the Kings' game tonight. Oh well.

Today was a friend's bridal shower and it was lots o' fun as far as bridal showers go. Not enough booze and a lot of gift-wrapped plates and mugs but all in all a good time.

Baby showers make me want to have a baby. However, bridal showers just make me want a KitchenAid stand mixer (does it come in green? If it does then that's the one I want). I've always been ambivalent about marriage but never about children and NEVER about KitchenAid stand mixers. There are just somethings that are essential for a complete life, am I right?

For the record, it does come in green but in an ugly shade of green. I'll settle for "boysenberry."

Oh yeah, hockey. Umm, the Sabres are currently winning 2-0. Woo! Pat Kaleta is a beast. I love him so.


  1. I have a cobalt blue KitchenAid. It's purty. I keep meaning to add these flame decals a la Alton Brown, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.


    Candy apple green! We had a green one when I was working at Sears. I would ogle it everyday.

  3. Heather- those flame decals are hilarious and awesome.

    Angellee- I didn't even see the Candy Apple! I think the little square swatch looked more yellow than it really is. That's the one I want! haha

  4. Anne, you totally need a Kitchenaid stand mixer. I have a refurbished one that was about $100 on Amazon. It looks like they're more now, but I think the deals always come around Christmas. Mine is white, but when I have some money to spare (or another boyfriend who likes to buy me culinary toys... if I ever decide to have a boyfriend again) and go for an upgrade I must have the cherry red. SO pretty. Or the chrome, so I can pretend I'm a professional.

    Heather - DO IT.
