spock woot
And the Predators win!!!

It was an AWESOME game. They had just come off a two-game losing streak (allowed eleven goals total - ouch!) but the Preds really pulled it off. I screamed myself hoarse! And Ree and her friends are putting together a documentary about hockey fans, and were collecting videos, and I was tapped to do some of the interviews. Fun stuff! You guys know me; I can pull up a stump and talk to a hole in the ground, so engaging them in conversation was simple. And let's face it, it doesn't take much to get a hockey fan talking pucks - especially Canadian ones.

And we handed Winnipeg their butts on a platter, too. Wow. LOVED it. I need to do this more often.

Ree took me down Broadway in Nashville after the game, and it was PACKED with hockey fans, soccer fans, tourists, musicians, wannabees, locals, and trolls. And, at one rather bizarre point of the evening, a full-size Tyrannosaurus skeleton with a red cowboy hat, being "walked" down by the symphony hall by a group of people. (Talk about trippy.) Then we went to the Sunset Grill for late-night tapas and dessert - Ree had pot de creme au chocolat and I had an absolutely inspired creme brulee. Then we talked hockey and Renn Faires and history and ghosts and family and Art Deco until about one ...

All in all, a truly fabulous evening. And this morning, we're hooking up with witchcat07 and arymetore! Woot! I wanna live in Nashville!

Nashville wants you to live here, too. :)

Hate that I missed you! I've been kind of in my own little world lately and not paying attention to what's going on with everyone else. Need to come up for air more often.
