Chocolate: there are few things less annoying than a box of delicious purdy’s chocolates
with NO map. people get lost, confused, frazzled and puzzled. do they take a random chocolate and have a bite? then eat the rest? put it back? what to do if it’s not the kind they like? heaven forbid i chose a random chocolate and immediately gag on the first bite upon discovering it’s *gulp* cherry.
Hockey: Tonight we’re going to kick back and watch the game. Hopefully the Canucks can get out of this powerplay/penalty kill funk they’ve been in lately. Also – I hope Auld was able to shake off the last game and those 7 goals against.
This morning we went over to mediaco for brunch. they’re such a great company and it allowed me to catch up with my old boss/coworkers and john was able to get some more face time in with the potential employer – keeping in touch and networking is always good.
People: Tomorrow my sister’s family is coming over for a gift exchange with Laura – Lolo’s so sweet, all the kiddies get a present from her (that she actually bought weeks ago), she’s so thoughtful.
Tomorrow night, after Lolo heads to her parents’ in North Van and Jen & family head back to Surrey – we’re going to take a walk and come home for a nice dinner.
Anne is in town this weekend (from Toronto) but we probably won’t see her and Gerry until New Years. Remind me to get her a bday/xmas present. She’s a Christmas baby and I have to make sure to get her two gifts, once for each occassion, it’s only fair.
My mom’s family is Catholic so they’ve been trying to get John and I to come out to midnight mass with them tomorrow night. It wouldn’t be too bad except going from Surrey to downtown at 1am Christmas Eve isn’t the best idea. I think we’ll stay home and head out there Sunday morning.
It’s a shame we can’t see John’s family but there we’ll be sure to make up for it in the year ahead – and everyone’s always welcome over to our place, anytime (just give us a bit of notice first 😉 hehe)
I don’t work again until Wednesday so I probably won’t have much time to blog so…
Best wishes to all, however you celebrate the Holiday season.
Merry Christmas!! (I’ll throw that in there for my mom)
