It’s the centennial random thoughts! Take a wild ride on the twisted paths that make up my stray thoughts.
- Peppa Pig is weird, but it’s got nothing on Bubble Guppies.
- There is nothing like the first sip of coffee in the morning.
- Going to bed at night with a dozen creative ideas is fun. Waking up in the morning and forgetting what you were thinking is not 1.
- I love the Lost In Space reboot on Netflix.
- I’ll be running a short role playing for folks who are struggling with cancer this coming February and March.
- Being a Philadelphia sports fan is a lesson in enduring pain.
- Coffee with friends is a joy.
- It’s December 8 and the holiday stress is already rough.
- I was offered another review copy of a role-playing game yesterday. I have to admit, it’s pretty cool when folks trust you with their hard work.
- Freaking out when we encounter someone who likes something we don’t like says a lot more about us than “them 2.”
- Moorestown Singers concert tonight at 7:30. Masks are required.
I don’t know bubble guppies, but Peppa pig is VERY British. My friend in Staffordshire introduced me to Peppa probably 10 years ago. Kids are obsessed with puddles there because it is always raining, and they are just so matter of fact. It’s definitely a different culture, despite the similar language.
And coffee, well, it is a joy whenever I drink it (as long as it is GOOD coffee!).
Oh yes, weird is not bad. The show has so many laugh out loud moments if you are an adult or know ANYTHING about British culture.
Dude… you have no idea what sports team disappointment is. Here in Minnesota we’ve perfected disappointment in our pro teams. Do you remember the famous missed field goal by Gary Anderson? We all sure do.
But we’re all passive aggressive about all of it anyway so it just comes out as “Ope! I guess we lost again.”
I mean, not going to argue over whose got it worse-you have it BAD. But telling a fan whose city boasts the professional sports team which has the most losses of any sport IN HISTORY that they don’t know what sports team disappointment is is a bit over the top.
But see that’s the thing. If you have a record of just always losing it’s not disappointment, it’s just the status quo (but man does it suck). Minnesota has this long storied history of building people’s hopes and dreams and then crushing them at the last second. Over, and over, and over, and over again. It’s like the “always a bridesmaid, never a bride” syndrome on massive steroids.
That’s how I’m differentiating the idea of disappointment. But I get what you’re saying and did not mean any disrespect.
The phrasing I used was “a lesson in enduring pain.”
But, as for disappointment, in my lifetime:
3 NFC championship losses in a row, the worst being to Tampa Bay who’d never won a playoff game in cold weather.
Ryan Howard collapsing on the final out of the playoff series.
5 for 1
The Fog Bowl
Blown off sides call cost the Flyers the Cup
Eric Lindros saga
Markelle Fultz a bust as first over all pick
The Fog Bowl (yes, twice, it haunts people)
Philadelphia Union have 11 players go on covid list prior to the Eastern Conference Championship
Reggie White not being offered a contract extension
Pellie Lindberg dies in a car crash
And that’s just off the top of my head. Again, cannot argue who has it worse. Just don’t say “you don’t know.”
