Brodie: Breakfast, shmreakfast. Look at the score, for Christ's sake. It's only the second period and I'm up 12 to 2. Breakfasts come and go, Rene, but Hartford, "the Whale," they only beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime.

Peacocks are weird

I feel it’s my duty to inform people about the happenings of peacocks. Why?

Because not everyone can come into their workplace and see a whole flock of peacocks outside their office. Can you?

Didn’t think so, but I can. And let me tell you they’re not the brightest of animals. They seem to love walking up the out-ramp of a 2nd story parking garage instead of going towards a lake for a drink. I feel sort of sorry for the one peacock who was smart enough to not go up the ramp. I bet he wondered where his buddies ran way to.

Peacocks also make some of the weirdest sounding calls you can imagine. Try to picture a child’s cry slightly distorted and it’s a bit closer to how they sound.

That all aside they are fucking pretty.

And I’m going to miss them when I stop working here at Sapient. Yeah I did just sneak that into this post about me getting a new job. I put in my two weeks yesterday and in 2 weeks I’ll be starting for a small start-up based out of Vancouver. No that doesn’t mean I’m going to be staying down here forever. It simply means if all goes well then in a few months Jamie and I will head up there and see if what everyone says about Vancouver is true.
