My Organization Philosophy

Posted by slkrabbit

I love organization. I want things to be organized, and I love to actually organize them. I want my stuff to look neat and tidy. I need my calendar to contain everything that's going on in my life. I live for getting the appropriate containers - be they baskets, boxes, tins or folders - to put everything in. The Container Store is my happy place. Seriously. I walk in, and I feel like I'm home.

The Thing About...Ralph Strangis

Posted by slkrabbit

Ralph Strangis was, until 4/23/15, the play-by-play announcer for the Dallas Stars. He announced on Thursday that he would be leaving the team to start "Act 2."

Ralph Strangis is basically synonymous with Dallas Stars hockey. Before I started watching the Stars on TV, I think I had been to one Tulsa Oilers game. I knew nothing about the sport, but I had Ralph to tell me about the game. I don't think I could have asked for a better teacher.

The Thing About...Hockey

Posted by slkrabbit

Anyone who has known me longer than, oh, 5 minutes expresses shock and surprise to find out that I love hockey. Even after a couple of years as a fan of the sport, my own parents still sometimes ask, "Who are you, and what have you done with our daughter?" (To be fair, that's largely payback for asking them the same in reverse when they became football fans.) Truly, it is rather inconsistent with everything else about me. At least...on the surface.
