Fun!! Snowperson builder
and bye bye north pole.
San Jose Sharks are 4-0 after the big Thornton trade…Hockey rumours floating around re: what the Canucks have to offer and is that Bertuzzi?…although the source on that one is the Toronto Sports Network hmm.. but still, I would have to agree with many when I say Clouts has gotta be the next to go… (matt good even references ‘the center ice shot heard round the world‘ in that post). that was painful…
we went for a walk last night after dinner. i was cold so instead of a long walk down to denman – over to davie and looping around, i suggested we head toward the water. yeah…s-m-r-t move. it was actually quite lovely (although brief) walking around coal harbour.
people around here really do love their dogs. anything from ginormous marmeduke type beasts to lil things that you can fit in your purse and snack on. this is a great walking-city. i’ve had to get used to that since i sold my car. but also, i wouldn’t want to really go for a drive after dinner…unless it was up one of the local mountains to check out the view on a clear night…
we got home and watched Hotel Rwanda. it was on movie central. i recently had to call shaw and complain because i signed up for the movie channels and they cut me off after the free-trial period even though i should have still been getting them…. anyway… it was a remarkable movie. disturbing, eye-opening, thought provoking… my sister read the book Shake Hands with the Devil and recommends it for anyone wanting to know more about the events the movie depicts.
This is something i’ve been wondering about for the LONGEST time! I was like – are these things for real? it would be cool if they were like the size of Frisbees! Records! CDs at least mmmm giant chocolate in a candy shell… but no… not at all, here’s a review.
I made it through another work day. Tonight I think we’ll get a christmas tree. As previously mentioned, it cannot be a real one so we’re gonna have to stake out a nice piece o’ plastic. I feel like going for a walk although it’ll be mighty cold. I really have grown to love the West End. As soon as you enter from Robson, hit Haro and keep going…(or coming from the other side) all the noise of the city fades away. you can hear a dog bark, a bird whistle, wind rustling through the trees, squirrels laughing…Singing…PLAYING… *sigh* but I digress.
It’s home to some pretty great food
as well. I think we were going to try and cook tonight (again ee!) but with places like Banana Leaf and Poncho’s and fish and chips and the ‘meat on the stick’ joint (near laura’s) and the vietnamese place near us and the gyoza place and the Guu (with garlic) place…and that indian food place and and…yeah…it’ll be tough to go home with an empty belly.
top model last night? meh…. tomorrow is hockey
. can’t wait for hockey. heard that Havlat
won’t be there for Ottawa since he’s got a shoulder injury and he’s getting surgery – making him a no-go for the rest of regular season. mario was admitted to hospital
in PA and i just want to go for a beer
and watch the canucks kick some Senator butt. although…. out of any canadian team, if anyone were to kick our butts, i’d mind them the least…
in other news, PM PM is taking aim at handguns
in his latest election promise. i also think that
having armed skytrain cops
is a moronic idea. i know we aren’t as much of a gun-crazed society as our neighbours to the south. i couldn’t actually name one person i know (family, friend, co-worker, aquaintance) that owns one. with gun-related crimes
on the rise (across the country), i think it’s about time there was some sort of action taken by the higher-ups.
now on a lighter note… i had to do a PIL yesterday. PIL = Process Improvement Log. Meaning, if you make a mistake that has repercussions for us and/or the client we have to put it in a log …I have about 10 since I started here over a year ago… some people have none, some have 5 in a week…it’s about the equivalent to writing something out on the chalkboard 1000 times or spending an hour in the bad-dog box. That’ll learn me. I think I’ll giggle at these one more time before I get back to work… Cute hockey cartoons: Elvis Fish Kitties
finale is on tonight… I admit it, I’m hooked… We went shopping at Safeway last night (the one on Davie, not Robson cause the one on Davie has jiffy pop), walked home with groceries, made yummy stir-fry and watched last week’s episode since we missed it. I just really don’t want Nicole to win 🙁
we’ve been looking forward to this show
for like EVER…they’re playing this Saturday at the Red Room in Vancouver
. BUT this Saturday my sister is celebrating her bday and we’re all going out for super-fun-girl times. I guess I could send my bf there by himself, but I also really like live music and would really like to see this as well. Oh what’s a girl to do…
Never before seen trailers for the Shining
I just found out that my morning coffee from Starbucks is actually Christmas Blend. I requested dark roast but apparently they’ve got Christmas Blend pumpin out all day today. It tastes like pine trees ground into crap with hints of reindeer….don’t… mess… with… my ….coffee…..
we went to Denman theatres
the other night to finally go see Wallace & Gromitt with Laura. It’s a cute lil place not too far from home and it smells like popcorn. Not googaplex-mass-produced generic-butter-slathered popcorn-like-goop. Just popcorn. I like popcorn.
