Nov. 19th, 2005 10:30 pm Ireland is cursed!

Saw this on lost_tv. The winning numbers for the Irish lottery are: 4 8 15 16 23 24 and a bonus number of 19. It's at this website. Truly scary indeed!

Checklist:

Aug. 15th, 2005 10:43 pm Pens sign LeClair

Wow...The Pens just signed John LeClair. Who cares about playing defense. The Pens could just be a pure offensive team now with all the players they've signed. How's this for a power play unit: LeClair, Crosby, Palffy, Lemieux (at the point), Gonchar. Yikes.

Aug. 15th, 2005 10:41 pm New Phone

My old phone has died. After 7 useful years, the dialer stopped working. Actually I think some of the numbers stopped working because I could call certain phone numbers but others, like my parents' number, just wouldn't work. I finally got around to buying a new phone -- a Vtech 5850 which seems to be working quite nicely. My only complaint about it is that the base of the phone where it charges is quite warm all the time. Hopefully it won't spontaneously combust.

Aug. 4th, 2005 04:37 pm Almost settled

Alright so this writing everyday for the first week in Corvallis thing isn't quite working. I've finally got an apartment and my stuff has finally arrived from Pennsylvania (after being more than a week late). I've changed most of the addresses that I've needed to change. My car license plates are now from Oregon plus I have a brand new Oregon driver's license. I've even got an internet connection at my apartment, so I'm almost completely settled.

Jul. 27th, 2005 02:16 pm Day 2 in Oregon

Got a call from my moving company telling me that my stuff will not arrive for another couple of days. As a result, they'll pay for a rental car so that I can wander around town. Went to see my department and got a mini-orientation. Then went apartment hunting. Saw lots of badly constructed, lousy apartments with likely mold problems. Realized that the NW corner of town is the expensive area. Drove to Eugene to do some exploring.

Jul. 27th, 2005 02:11 pm So it begins...Day 1

So much for writing a diary entry every day during my move. This is three days late but oh well. Left Seattle around 9:00 on Monday and drove down to Corvallis. Thought Albany, OR was Corvallis and got lost there but figured it out eventually. Found the motel I was staying at after some effort navigating the one-way streets in downtown Corvallis. Decided to check if the Hilton had any last minute cancellations but nope, all rooms were taken. I had to pick the worst possible week to come down to OSU. Drove to Salem to do some shopping and bought a Logitech MX1000 laser mouse.

Jul. 25th, 2005 01:21 am Chapter 4

Looks like I'll be starting a new chapter in my life tomorrow. I've decided to split up my life so far based on where I've lived. Let's see...that puts me on Chapter 4. I feel like I'm watching the end of a multi-part movie like Lord of the Rings and the screen is fading to black for the end of The Two Towers. Well I certainly have a lot of fond memories of Chapter 3. It was an eventful 7 years.

Jul. 24th, 2005 12:17 am Thoughts on the NHL Lockout

The NHL lockout is finally over and it was worth the wasted year. I never sided with the players during the dispute and I'm glad they got what they deserved (although some owners and GMs get the blame too like the morons that run the NY Rangers). Salaries, especially the higher end ones, were way out of control. I'm glad there is finally a salary cap (plus revenue sharing) so that small market teams like the Pens can survive in the league. It's going to be fun during the buyout period watching all the free spending teams buyout their expensive mistakes.

Speaking of the Pens, I can't wait to see Sidney Crosby in action this fall. Argh I had to leave Pittsburgh right when the team was starting to get back on track. Assuming Kovalev signs with the Pens, the Pens sign a top notch defenseman, Crosby debuts this year and Evgeny Malkin joins the team, Pittsburgh might have a decent team this year. Add in the the fact that the Pens have been stockpiling young talent the last few years, the Cup might be on its way back to Pitt. Now if they can just build a new arena in the city...
