Tonight, at the same time as I was watching the Caps and Bruins play yet another tightly-contested playoff game (a win or go home game seven, no less), this was also happening:
That’s the Empire State Building decked out in blue and white lights for Partners in Preservation, which gets underway tomorrow in New York City. Expertly photographed by my colleague Jason, I spent the first intermission and most of the second period getting this shared far and wide online.
I then went back to watching the game, curled up in a tiny ball of stress in the corner of my couch.
AND THE CAPS WON!IN OVERTIME!
I yelled a lot, texted my (also very excited) siblings, sent some excited tweets and wrote some happy messages on Facebook, and watched some player interviews on tv.
The most famous building in America got lit up special for the place where I work, and my beloved Caps won a playoff series against the defending Stanley Cup champions on the same night.
And now that the stress has subsided, I am drinking a beer and eating a bowl of oatmeal at ten minutes to midnight. While writing the most disorganized blog post ever, I might add. Cool stuff + tired girl = nonsense.
