i used to hate the wedge segment on much music – it was so “kooky” now im coming to find that it contains all my current favourite artists, songs, and great things i have not yet discovered.

what’s on right now? sixteen military wives – the decemberists. john’s having a riot. just thought i would direct you toward the cutest lil video short that we just saw. it’s for Wintersleep – Fog. check it out – it’s good and canadian and less evil than mostly all other much music programming.

& our dirty laundry

i’m hoping to get john’s sister’s permission to post a pic of one of her paintings on my site. i really like her work. for now, check out her site at www.elizabethbollwitt.com.
hopefully we’ll be able to catch john’s family on ichat and have a video conference this weekend as we did the other week – we were able to join in the March Birthdays celeberation at his parents’ house via the laptop.

so much to do this weekend so little time. heading to surrey for lexi’s 6th bday tomorrow. running a million n one errands tonight – including picking up a gift from the registry at the bay that we’ve been putting off… and we’ll have to get to some much needed grocery shopping. also, our building is REALLY great but you have to pay to do laundry – so we need to get some loonies n quarters so we can clean up a lil bit this weekend … we have got a lot of clothing…

and for some reason this afternoon i ranted for a couple mins about people with funny names. somehow i got to Paul Bellini. whenever i mention bellinis to john he thinks of Paul – not the drink. i have never been formally introduced to the on screen work or contest known as “touch paul bellini” – although i did just google it and there’s a wiki site all about him. time for home – happy weekend everyone.

just for peanuts

so john‘s got this fascination with squirrels – not just any though, stanley park big-as-cat-squirrels. you always see people feeding them and they’re so used to people they basically stalk you/hunt you down til you empty your pockets. while watching (i forget which show) on WGN there was a commercial for money mart where a dude tells a story of being mugged by squirrels. of course this made john giggle extensively and it made me wonder hmm dont tell the stanley park squirrels – they may get ideas… so i’m browsing fark.com this morning and come across this article reporting a dog mugging a boy for his cell phone. animals are fun :p

laura might beat us there

going to watch the game now – we could get the PPV at home but come on, it’s more exciting watching it with dozens of strangers and someone pouring your beer for you. 2nd of 3 games in a row vs the oilers… do or die – gotta make something happen – go canucks! (this will be edited drunkenly later, and depending on if they win or lose…and how much i either celebrate or drown my sorrows, it could be rather amusing)

UPDATE: 3/24/2006 08:43:00 AM what a game! although on the walk home all john could say over and over was “i HATE shootouts!” the crowd gathered below us outside on Robson street looking in restaurant windows to catch a glimpse of teh action may have thought otherwise about the excitement of the event.

i thought that smyth’s shot was indecisive and in that case they dont award a goal… but if you gotta look up the rule book and blah blah blah it was in… i guess… doesnt matter though because jarrko and bert put their shots home and we came up victorious. we’re now tied for 6th with anaheim in the west. it sucks it went to OT so edmonton got a point as well but it’s a start… our heads might finally be out of our butts.

Yesterday I was cruising the Okanangan Spring Brewery website, I ended up at their parent company’s site – for Sleeman. On Sleeman’s site there’s a lil blurb about their breweries and a section on OK Spring. From the Sleeman site I click on the OK Spring link – check out our website here – kinda thing. It takes me to www.okanaganspring.com which is NOT the OK Spring Brewery site — which is actually www.okspring.com. I wrote up a lil note in the “contact us” section and I just heard back..

It appears you are right! Not sure how this happened! We are currently following up to make a correction. We appreciate your kind note! Cheers!

Now if only some free product would be involved – although I just heard back from Sue and they’re sending me something – it just can’t be beer :p … ahh well. just helping out the little guy… well actually the big guy with all the beer.

Chris just sent me this from the Onion hehe!!

“We ask fans to cooperate with Interpol to find the assailant, and call upon British Sea Power, Snow Patrol, and The Postal Service for help…”

We’re really enjoying the Onion Radio News podcasts. Everyone is going podcast crazy. it’s the new buzz word, some people don’t know what it is, how to use it, what it does but they want it. Check out my podcast links on the side for some goodies and jump on that bandwagon.
