I confess. Some of the time I used to spend writing this blog has gone into reading hockey blogs instead. With American mainstream media coverage of the world’s greatest game the worst it’s been in my lifetime, a hockey fan has to do whatever it takes.

Enter, among others, blueshirtbulletin.com, hockeyrodent.com, and a newly discovered favorite of mine, hockeybuzz.com.

However, reading about hockey is not all I’ve been doing. Things with Hot D***a have been pretty darn busy, and that’s a good thing. In fact, my partner and I are in the midst of a nineteen day stretch where there’s food-serving-work-to-do each and every day.

Today a man wanted to buy a soda with his Access (food stamp) card. I hate those things. Perhaps I have a lack of compassion, but I don’t think that’s it. Simply put, there is no reason anyone should ever have Access to something as superfluous as a soft drink with welfare money.

The name Access says it all. I mean why doesn’t the government grant me Access to a high definition television? It’s just about as necessary as a soda and I sure would like one. I just don’t want to spend the asking price to get one.

Anyway, I digress. Come pay us a visit. We’re open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm. That aforementioned 19 day stretch will be all the more pleasant if you make yourself a part of it!
