has become increasingly amusing lately. Chris Parnell and Andy Samburg did a “Digita
l Short” this week… Last time
I caught one, Andy and Will Forte sat on a doorstep munching on lettuce and having a deep, heartfelt conversation for several mins. This week Andy and Chris successfully told a story about calling up your friend and arranging to see The Chronicles of Narnia – the whole thing was done in Beastie Boy-esque fashion. They were ‘rapping’ like Beastie Boys and the film was shot in their music video style. It was amusing. The Chronic – WHAT cles of Narnia!
The Canucks weren’t their hottest on Saturday night vs the Oilers
. Ouellet was in net but there was a bit of a breakdown in other areas (ie penalty kill) that didn’t help him much. Getting his first NHL start with the Canucks, must have been a tense game for him. They play LA tonight
. A good thing to mention would be the upcoming World Junior Hockey
Championship in Vancouver. Check out Don Cherry’s opinion of Crosby
and why Gretzky has taken leave
as Coach of the Coyotes.
We had a pretty great weekend, went to the movies, did some shopping, watched lots of Holmes on Homes.
I have yet to finish my Christmas shopping. Santa has to get a stocking
ready for a certain someone and my sister and I are heading to wonderful America-land to shop on Wednesday night. I will treat her to my company, chicken fingers, and Victoria’s Secret garments. John and I made a trek to Ikea
(which he ended up podcasting) on Saturday night, which wasn’t all that bad. I have yet to truly reach a breaking point amidst all the holiday shoppers and completely give in to walk/shop rage.
‘there’s only 5 shopping days left until Holiday’
Last night we caught a couple of shows about Tsunamis. It’s coming up to the 1 year anniversary of the earthquake/tsunami in asia. It was just over a year ago that close to 300,000 people lost their lives. Allowing us to reflect on the events that took place last Boxing Day, the CBC program featured the more personal stories. We also watched one on Discovery Channel. It was a more scientific look at the damage the earthquake did to the ocean floor. Using technology and information they gathered from that, they were able to formulate a really scary estimation of what would happen to the west coast of North America.
Man… the last 12 months have really been filled with devastating natural disasters. Although sometimes the most devastating disasters aren’t caused by mother nature…on that note – Chris just brought this to my attention on Amnesty’s site.
