I'd somehow forgotten how deeply satisfying it is to peer into the pantry and spontaneously throw together tasty food and then devour it. Even if it's just something as simple as tuna salad made with TONS of dill and tarragon and black pepper (along with more normal amounts of smoked paprika, garlic power, onion powder, onion salt, cayenne pepper, a dollop of whole-grain dijon mustard, and a dash of grated parmesan cheese), piled onto roasted garlic Triscuits.

Hockey season went out with a bang last night. I enjoyed these Cup Finals a lot; there's something to be said for watching two teams that I have mildly positive feelings about play some really good, hard-fought hockey. One of the things I really like about the playoffs is getting to know teams and players I didn't start out that familiar with, and this year has been quite rewarding on that level. Now I'm looking forward to the Draft! :D And the summer trade season and free agent frenzy, of course. Should be a very interesting off-season.

Also yesterday, we finally moved my stuff from the storage unit into the garage here. So for the first time in over fifteen years, all of my stuff is actually in one place. I have been living half out of suitcases and without access to most of my books and such for going on four years. Unpacking and organizing it all is going to be a huge, protracted task, but still. It's all here. This almost makes up for the multiple months of 100+ degree weather and having to drive everywhere, which are perhaps my two least favorite things about Texas. Well, besides the prevailing conservative mindset in most of the state, but hey, at least I live in Austin. It could be so much worse!

Tonight we're planning to watch the last episode of Game of Thrones, season 2. Tomorrow there's another So You Think You Can Dance. I have acquired a copy of Goon to watch sometime later this week when the hockey withdrawal symptoms start to set in.

Life is not always good, and it's definitely not always functional, but right now, this moment? I'll take it.
