went out on the town last night – john’s second “night on the town” since arriving in october. sure we go out for dinner and to the pub for games and stuff – but this was like… out for dinner… drinkin… dancing… getting home uber-late and not remembering a few details about the night except knowing that you had a kickass time.
my cousin’s wife heidi had her first night out since having baby Kaylee in january – it was much deserved. met up with my brother in law and some other friends. the music selection was well… somewhat “diverse” to put it mildly but with good spirits flowing it was a great time.

the others left around 11:30 and my husband and i stuck around. we shook our groove thangs, salsa’d, cha cha’d, boogied and made out on the dance floor. we’re pretty lucky to have found each other – and to be comfortable enough with each other to dance like complete fools and not even care – we just appreciate and love each other that much more for being able to just be who we are. mush mush mush sorry laura :p

fresh sunday

at work, trying not to be bored – trying not to jinx things so that 50 million jobs come in and i’ll be so incredibly busy. just browsing some blogs and i scooped up these pics of my wedding courtesy of anne.
going to gather some pics up from last night and post them as well. i really don’t want to be here right now but it ain’t so bad. i have popcorn, tunes and my shoes are off. yes, they’re off. due to celtfest this weekend all the buses have been outta whack. had to take the bus to burrard then hastings and walk up to work – it aint that inconvenient but today’s just been full of running around. i could really use a nap.

coincidence – could they have used that word more? we saw V for Vendetta last night with my brother. it was good – i think john enjoyed it a lil more than i did though. about 10 mins left to the movie, everything is climaxing, i’m totally getting into it, and ZOOOOOP! the power goes out. movie off. house lights on. umm…. yeah… so the 200+ people in the theatre are a lil dumbfounded at first… then you overhear the misc. comments “huh?” “what?” “whatta cliffhanger!” “aw man i was just getting into it” hehe… within a few mins the movie picked up again but it really soured things for me. we all got free passes to go back to the theatre but yeah… it was entertaining, humorous, the action or sexy bits weren’t gratuitous… yes, enjoyable – but not rave-tastic.

he gone

seriously, i hate baseball. it’s a bunch of lazy men standing around scratching themselves and occasionally hitting a ball with a bat…. BUT… i promised John that since we’re married and I make him watch all these top model shows and crap – that he can watch Cubs games this spring/summer :p
i mean i love PLAYING baseball, i love playing most sports but watching it is as bad as watching golf on TV (which i also enjoy actually playing – not watching). oh and i also love baseball movies: a league of their own, the sandlot, field of dreams (okay well they’re fluffy baseball movies but still).

So we started off the morning walking to the store, the market, then making a breakfast and watching Cubs vs Sox – which was a total snooze-fest UNTIL john turned on the World Baseball Classic. OH BOY! seriously, this is the one of the only times i’ve ever appreciated the skill, talent, sportsmanship, athletic ability and actual excitement that this game has. not to mention the extremly fun time the fans are having in the stands – music, dancing– i wanna salsa!

it took watching Dominican Republic vs Cuba (and we saw another game the other day too) combined with catching a Red Sox game at Fenway in 2003, to realize that just maybe… MAYBE… there could be more to baseball that i just haven’t discovered yet — it’s worth a shot. the final on monday (winner of Korea/Japan vs winner of Domincan Rep/Cuba) be sure to catch it on sportsnet at 6pm ๐Ÿ™‚

fah fah away

i’m going to be working this weekend – which kinda sucks but i get a day off in lieu so we’re going to plan our lil mini-island getaway around that time. you’d be surprised at how much news can come in and be distributed at 10pm on a sunday night.

they cut down trees outside my house the other day. poor john was planning on doing a podcast but i guess there was a lil background noise :p but… now when i sit at my puter i can see the street and the alley and yeah… so not much left for tree cover… who wants to see us walk around the apartment all day buck naked anyway eh? bah.

according to anne’s msn she’s going to st. martaan in 3 weeks – BUH?! everyone’s going away and not taking me ๐Ÿ™ boo. i’m so itchin to go away right now – the last sort-of trip we took was to victoria… we dont have many options right now given some limitations on travel destinations ie. the USA and we dont have that much cash to throw around …

so we’re going to have to make do with being in the city – not that it’s a bad city, actually it’s supposed to be a gorgeous weekend. lots and lots going on around town. events, st. patrick’s day things, celtic fest things, new movies out and YAY next week the kiddies are all back in school!
