(Photo Missing) This picture was taken when I was about a year old. Being born and raised in Vancouver I know quite a few things… It’s possible to get walk-rage at 8:15 in the morning, there are several degrees/classifications of rain (ie. showers, drizzle, pour, sprinkling etc.) and only certain variations require umbrellas… Surrey will always have a bad rep, even though some of the stories I hear about Maple Ridge make me cringe in Jerry-Springer-esque fashion. Expo 86 was fun and in high school free Grizzlies tickets from our basketball coach were entertaining at least. I also know that the Canucks will eventually win the cup – and someone will be in the stands with a sign that says “Believe”.
Back to Canadian animals… Our Premier unveils an agreement for the rainforest on the BC coast with hopes to make everyone happy, loggers, first nations, and the endangered Spirit Bear.
Edit: Chris just sent over the Geek test (yes, what a busy day at work eh?) and of course I have to share my results: Modern, Cool Nerd.
Also… I know this may sound totally weird… but whenever I have something on my clipboard, ie. I just copied something and i’m waiting to unload/paste it somewhere on my puter… it feels as though my mouse is like Mario when he’s got a turtle shell he’s carrying around waiting to drop/release it using my right mouse button…. like i can physically feel it all loaded and ready to fire :p no more coffee for me *runs and hides now*
Now about the “big” line (consisting of Naslun, Morisson, Bertuzzi)… it showed up last night, Naslund being solid (nothing too fancy or spectacular) but Bertuzzi worked his butt off as did Mo. We’re starting to see real depth with this team – even from players such as Josh Green, Alex Burrows and now Mojzis who are battling every game for a chance to stay up in the NHL. Bieksa making his impression after being with the Moose last year as well. Ryan Kesler has got some heart – going up against the likes of Iginla and Foote. John asked me if he was a rookie and I believe he was a call up last year and has been a pretty darn impressive addition to the roster ever since – he’s got wheels, fists and a lot of determination.
It seems like in Edmonton we crumbled when it came to offense and Auld was left to carry the team. With shots on goal being so lop-sided it really was no fault of his. He’s been solid and from the begining I have supported the Canucks’ decision to have him as our #1 (and I’m also openly anti Cloutier and Jovo so that may not be a surprise) :p
That’s my hockey talk for this morning, I wish we could get out and attend more games – we had so much fun at the one we caught earlier this season, it would be a blast to experience that again. Although sitting on the couch holiding hands and talkin’ hockey with my husband-to-be ain’t too shabby at all :p

rogers wireless on the other hand… is another story, a very long story, needless to say i’ll be getting two bills in the mail again this month and there’s one i’m supposed to ignore but i’m not sure which. so i’ll have to call their customer service line again and tell that person the big long story.
we didn’t get much done this weekend in terms of wedding. i think we’re just down to the licenses (liquor and wedding) and our attire. everything else is booked and i think we’re going to have a solid attendee number by our RSVP deadline. Again, really wicked that john’s friends can make it up. His parents have had a trying time recently with health problems and there have been many stresses on my family as well but hopefully when our day comes, everyone will be able to relax and enjoy. it shouldnt be an extremely stressful event at all, but with all of life’s curveballs, things just pile up.
January was our rainiest on record here in Vancouver and February started off with winds, storms, floods. This week is supposed to be sunny… and the Canucks have a home game tonight – hopefully they can recover from their loss in edmonton since their home record is impressive. right now, for this week… things are looking up…
