Having already lost No. 1 goalie Dan Cloutier for the season with a knee injury, the Canucks are also without defenceman Ed Jovanovski (groin) and winger Richard Park (knee). Manitoba call-up Rick Rypien is also out for several weeks with a broken ankle.
Being a new resident in this riding I really have to pay attention to the candidates – I know enough about Svend Robinson from his history as an MP and public figure – I know little about Hedy Fry except for the fact that she’s had a total dynasty downtown for quite a while. If she’s hoping to get re-elected I’m not really sure she’s doing enough – from what I see. As for Svend and the NDP… I’ll have to read up a little more – I also don’t even know the name of the Conservative MP in my riding. For someone that likes to make informed decisions, that ain’t good. And if you’re not Canadian and have no idea how this all works, it never hurts to Wiki it.
24 Hours has a story about burnt out supermoms. I don’t have any first hand experience although i know my sister is a super mom. both she and her husband work and manage 3 kids that are 5 and under. we have a great support system within my family but it still amazes me – and the children are so great.
i haven’t had much time to spend with john’s family and the kids on that side – he has 4 nephews and 2 nieces that are all under 12. it will be nice when we can travel again and spend time with his family which he’s been away from for months now. over the holidays all the kids broke into a charming rendition of Oh Canada! via iChat. well, it was to the tune of Oh Canada but it was more like ‘Oh Canada, you stole our Uncle John…’ very sweet and amusing *ahem* hehe. i know it wasn’t easy when i was living in boston – at the time my niece was 3 and my sister had just had her second child. i missed birthdays, family get togethers, holidays etc. one thing is for sure, they’re always going to be your family – and they can always come visit (just give us time to get a guest room setup… and to get a guest room) :p
In a move to cut down on scams and frivolous listings, Craigslist, a popular online classifieds site, is considering charging a per-post fee for its real estate listings in San Francisco and New York City.
Last night the Canucks defeated the Penguins 4-2. Morisson had a great game and it seemed like Sid was pickin fights with everyone. They take on Buffalo on Thursday. John’s friend Don is from that part of the world, although more into football right now than anything he said – it’s nice to have a team like the penguins, anyone who comes to play in that arena goes home happy. Poor Pens. I say move em up to Winterpeg, sorry Mario.
I got suckered into buying coffee cake from ‘sbucks this morning, it sure it tasty. got to work at 6:55…things to do this afternoon so i took over the morning and will be off at 3pm for sushi with John and those things to do. Listening to Neverending White Lights right now and i think it’s making me sleepy…
