today is groundhog day – i heard some interesting background info about this on the Daily Breakfast Podcast w/ Father Roderick courtesy of John. Ya know I never thought I would sit around in the morning eating porridge, sipping coffee and listening to a catholic priest.
Dunno how much time i’ll have to blog in the next few days (i always say that then find the time). We’re going to be out and about a lot. hopefully the sun will be shining as it was today over this great city.
Okay so we had the wettest January on record. I remember last summer we were on track for the most sunny days, until there was like one day to go and the lil instrument at Environment Canada that measures such things was stolen – so everyone just ‘figured’ we broke that record. Yay Vancouver! I really hope that February is a lil dryer, for many reasons. Historically it’s actually a very sunny month.
Now, how about them Canucks eh? Jovo is out, Naslund was back and seven different players scored to defeat the Coyotes 7-4. Sedin with 4 points, Auld was great (as per usual) with 42 saves – they ended up pulling Cujo after 5 goals on 19 shots. People are saying it’s because Nagy is out that their team is outta whack – we could say the same about not have Jovo but …really I don’t think we’ll miss him that much (sorry :p).
I put on an all 80s iTunes mix this morning at work for Laura and Chris. I’m in a much better mood than yesterday – John made me eggs and toast before I left then we went downstairs to pay rent – I’m so glad my building lets you pay with Interac, since I dont have checks it’s the easiest and most convenient way to go. When the lease is up in October we’re hoping to move to a 2 bedroom place in the building – those suites are all on the west side of the building, right now we’re north-east. But, not to get ahead of myself, we still have a full summer ahead of us in this place right above the building’s heated pool mmm. Okay now I don’t want to be at work anymore…
I think we’re also going to sign up for the Sun Run this year. I used to do it in high school with my running club. We’d show up to school at 6am and take off on a 10km run. We’d do the Sun Run, Run for Light and various others around vancouver. Although one year for the Run for Light the weatherman from UTV (now Global) told us to leave our backpacks under the warmup stage area. We did, and when we got back my bag was gone. I had my school books, wallet, clothes and michelle’s Forrest Gump piano book in there. That guy is still doing weather on Global and man… I still don’t trust him…
I need to go for a nice long walk with John. we still walk but it’s more for transportational purposes ie. getting to food or voting or work etc. we used to talk long walks in parks and around vancouver – for the fun of it. i think we’ve just been too busy lately. i wish i could run with him in the mornings around stanley park – especailly those mornings when you wake up and the mountains are covered in snow, the north shore is decorated an orange glow from the sunrise and the water is clear and emerald coloured. i like the rain, it keeps things green, lush, fresh and growing. but there’s nothing like a clear vancouver morning when someone who’s lived here their entire life — or someone whose only been here for a few months — can realize that this really is the best city in the world.
it looks as though i could just sit here and blog about something after all….
