I decided to forgo watching the season-opener for the Sabres tonight and, instead, went to Labyrinth Press Company to hear some live music. Turns out I made the right decision based on what I just read on the BfloBlog open thread. At least I have no delusions going into this season and will be happy if we make the play-offs.

It's good to see that the younger hipsters have adopted the coffee house as a hang out. Even if Tara hadn't been there, I wouldn't have needed my journal to keep me occupied. The self-conscious, yet devil-may-care conversations and antics around me would have provided plenty of entertainment. Entertainment is a word I use loosely. I've always felt more like an observer, even when I was that age. Just taking in the world around me with an element of mirth and awe.
