well it’s Black Friday, markets are closed early in the US so that means work is slow. This also means that when Outlook and some of our proprietary software crash for all western regions, the rest of the country has to pick up the slack. it also means that laura and i can play Solitaire Showdown and blog. I saw a shirt on Tony Pierce‘s blog “No, I don’t want to read your blog” hehe or on the geek site (where I had those panties listed way back in the spring) “I’m blogging this”.
Sports Night – I really like this show, it was introduced to me recently. Unfortunately after it already was cancelled/went off the air. So I get to enjoy it in DVD form….It goes great with peanuts 🙂
when i was living in boston my mom was telling me about the play the kids were doing back home. my niece alexis was in it. i was like ‘is she an angel? a shepherd? mary? a wise man? none of the above. she was ‘the mexican’. :-\ interesting… i’ll never forget the time she was mary though, there was a lil boy about her age (4 at the time) who was joseph. and the whole time on stage they couldnt stop fidgeting. she would try to sit still and he’d be tugging at her shirt or bugging her, she finally just let him have it. it wasn’t so much a of ‘silent night’ but it had great entertainment value :p
This week/weekend is the Party on the Pacific – I was never much into football at all. Although I find most sporting events are pretty darn exciting when you’re there in person. The crowd, the atmosphere, the stinky-sweaty smell of competition. Good times. The BC Lions aren’t even in the Grey Cup this year but I’m sure the energy around town will be pretty electric will all the festivities going on. We’ll see how it goes, especially with good ol’ Pam being the Grand Marshall of the Parade. Good luck girls.
I’m a rugby girl. 5 years as scrum half for Whalley and QE – we went to provincials twice and kicked butt. No pads, no helmets, just a bunch of girls tackling each other in the mud. Oh my 😉 Except if the “mud” is like the stuff on the field at Langley Secondary – I think their septic system is under the field because OOOH boy that stuff was nasty.
i can’t get my flickr badge to stay put where i want it so it’s gonna just hang out where it is for a while.
When I was 15 I fell in love with Forrest Gump. I could recite the movie in my sleep, standing on my head chewing bubble gum. I just loved the character, Tom Hanks, his relationships with his Momma, Jenny, his son… I’m thinking about the lil speach he says to Jenny’s gravestone right now and I’m about to tear up. hehe. I worked at camp that summer. Everyday in the staff lounge I’d put up a new “Gumpism” on the chalkboard. You could say I was slightly obsessed. Movies have comesuch a long way even since Forrest – wow I guess that’s 10 years ago…gosh…
We never did see Harry Potter on Friday night – it was (of course) sold right out. I could have bought tickets online at work during the day, but there would have been mega-fees and stuff. I can wait and see it in a little bit. I think after Harry Potter the next one will be John Cusack’s new movie, the Ice Harvest. I believe his next one is currently being filmed in Vancouver – but then again, what ISNT these days.
using song lyrics for a post title, not original – but this song is stuck in my head so it’s all i could come up with.
Speaking of which, I’d like to thank Vancouver for treating this lil Surrey-girl so well (ya ya ya hold off on the jokes!) but Surrey will always be my home. Home of Surrey Minor Hockey, the Little League World Series-worthy Whalley team, previously Canada’s largest vacant office space, car theft capital of North America, QE Royals, West Whalley Trojans – now the Kwantlen Park Coyotes, The Rodeo Drive-In, The Round-Up Cafe, Tynehead Park (and hundreds of others), Strawberry Hill Cinemas (still the best around), and my family. Good luck to Surrey with their new Mayor, Diane Watts. My sister said she’s decent so that’s all I have to base my opinion on. I think if McCallum got in again they’d be putting in an 80-storey tower on King George in the near future. Hm …yeah…. Vancouver also has a new mayor, Sam Sullivan. It’ll be tough to fill Larry Campbell’s shoes (aka DaVinci hehe) but let’s see what he can do, eh?
