Topics I've Started

One pathetic Wings fan

23 April 2006 - 09:05 PM

Hello LGWers!

It seems as if I pop my head up out of the water only every few months or so to re-emerge in the world of LGW.com.

I know... some moderator.

At the same time, I can't tell you when the last time was that I sat down and watched an entire hockey game. Before the lockout.

I know... some hockey fan.

During my LGW prime, the Steve Yzerman, Darren McCarty, and the rest of the Wings were the only things I focused on. Now-a-days, my life is filled with two things... French horn and Calculus. If I'm not desperately trying to raise my math grade before the end of the term, I've got my horn to my face, working on etudes for auditions, festivals, solos, whatever! I hope to one day, after getting a bachelor's in music education, go for my master's degree in horn performance.

Sadly, Stevie Y just doesn't fit into the scenario as I'd like. And the fast paced world this website has grown into is just amazing first of all, but also hard to keep up with (in fact, my dinosaur computer really does have trouble keeping up, site moves veeerrry slow).

So I guess this post is my apology to LGW, and especially Matt, for neglecting the site. Don't assume I'm gone, I'm not; I'm back! Wings fans are some of the best kinds of people in the world and I could never stay away from something like this! I love hockey and I love this site. Go Wings!

Take care and goodnight,

This is not for the faint of heart, but it serves as a sobering reminder as to what is important in life. Cherish your loved ones, people. Hug their necks.


Any music majors?

Anyone here have a degree in Music? Music ed, performance, anything?

At my high school/art school I'm an instrumental music major. If all goes as planned, at the University of Central Florida I'll be going after a degree in Music Education. Possibly double major or minor in trombone or euphonium performance.

Any other musicians?

She's back, everything will be okay.

Wow, I signed onto LGW and it said my last visit was May of 2004. Way to be, moderator. Hockey season disappears... so do I? But I'm back, so watch out. cool.gif

Anybody miss me? hehe.gif


Letters to the Animal

01 July 2005 - 08:55 AM

Found this on another site I belong to... thought it was amusing...

Dear Dog and/or Cat,

When I say to move, it means go someplace else, not switch
positions with each other so there are still two of you in
the way.

The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your
food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. (Please
note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate of food
does not stake a claim for it becoming your food dish, nor
do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.)

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a
racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object.
Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king size bed. I am very
sorry about this. Do not think I will continue to sleep on
the couch to ensure your comfort. Look at videos of dogs and
cats sleeping. They can actually curl up in a ball. It is
not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched
out to the fullest extent possible. (I also know that
sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out
the other end to maximize space used is nothing but

My compact discs are not miniature Frisbees.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the
bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to
get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine meow,
try to turn the knob, or get your paw under the edge and try
to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I
entered. (In addition, I have been using the bathroom for
years...canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.)

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dogs or
cats. I cannot stress this enough. It would be such a simple
change for you.

To pacify you I have posted the following message on our
front door.....

Rules for Non-pet owners who visit and like
to complain about our pets:

1. They live here; you don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the
3. I like my pet better than I like most people.
4. To you it's an animal. To me he and/or she is an adopted
son and/or daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours
and is speech challenged.

Dogs and cats are better than kids. They eat less, don't ask
for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come
when called, never drive your car, don't hang out with drug
using friends, don't drink or smoke, don't worry about
buying the latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, don't
need a gazillion dollars for college, and when they have
young, you can sell the results.

Then I felt like elaborating to my own dog... tongue.gif

Loki, I'm sorry that you choose to lay perpendicular to me or ON me. On warm summer nights, as much as I appreciate your consideration, I could really use without your large black fur coat all over my body... added to 105 pounds of your body lying on me. Also, I promise you there is NO SECRET TREASURE burried beneath the carpet. So everytime you venture into the living room or bedrooms, stop jumping and digging and trying to figure just how to get your body under there. I promise, there is nothing under there. And if you could, please stop digging up random objects in the yard. I understand that the previous owners of the house were oddballs and left artifacts in the land... but looking out the window to seeing you with a hatchet or oil can in your mouth is not what I like to deal with in the morning. And lastly, you're a rottweiler. So please, when the weiner dog comes over... don't cower in the corner. Be a man.

And then I realized that he's just a 105 rottweiler pup that doesn't understand anything that I just spent 5 minutes typing.
