it begins – the FIFA world Cup
in Germany kicks off today. for the best places in vancouver to watch the action and be surrounded by people just as excited as you, but probably 100x more passionate about football (than me at least), check out BC Soccer Web
â€œThe special twist making SOCCERIO possible is the RIO on BROADWAY, which will feature 25 FIFA World Cup matinee games at its 458-seat theatre location on Commercial Drive and East Broadway,â€ said Lenzi. â€œWeâ€™re convinced the one-two punch of the RIO as a flagship venue and the formal promotion of a festival will bring people together along the Drive.â€
For more information about Soccerio, try any of the following links: media release, specific venue info, the cause.
For up to the minute action check out the official site, or be lazy…err i mean resourceful and click on the google banner today – which will take you to all world cup related sites AND supply an up-to-the-minute update on the current game (googleness).
why are tv commercials for radio stations so annoying? there’s one on the american channel (komo) right now with a bunch of butts dancing… that’s all, just butts. dancing to 90s music – like they just threw on Much Dance ’94 and tacky pants and thought – wow this would make a GREAT commerical.
remember those commercials for that other seattle radio station – it was some oldies station and all i can remember is someone dancing in duck slippers… anyone? err…
i’m in a silly mood. we watched episode 2, season 3 of Rescue Me which got me all emotional and teary. then john put on Kids in the Hall – Brain Candy. that made the pendulum swing and i got all emotional in a silly happy sense. i’m pretty drained at this point so bed is my best option.
one more scan of the weebernet before i go to bed reveals my everlong-female-artist-crush Holly McNarland has news. I’m a long time member of the HollyMcNarland.org forum but now there’s her myspace page to check out as well. Also, two tracks from the new album can be heard at curve music’s myspace page.
um, why is Alana there? i mean, i’m sure she’s a lovely girl but she looks like she should be working at safeway – not starring in a nation-wide top model search reality series. (not that there’s anything wrong with working at safeway:p) (top model profiles
) Ylena is beautiful but looks like a soccer mom (not that soccer moms can’t be beautiful but it looks like she’s got 10 years on these other girls). Sisi gets a bad rap – she took a GREAT photo last night (and i know wyn
is pullin’ for her too :p). kimmy
(andrea) would have looked great with hair extensions but at least the makeover they gave her added about 5 years, which made her look more womanly and rather nice. And I’m sorry, but if she’s complaining about the “stupid competition” she shouldn’t still be there. Dawn, yeah a lil too innocent/naive and lacks confidence but i’d rather see others go first. The makeovers in this episode were good for everyone – but the bathing suits they put them in for the shoot, were not so much…
Gotta love CityTV
for not editing out “Sisi, this tastes like sh*t”. It caught me off guard at first but then i realized what station i was on. I think if you go back to season 1 of ANTM
it’ll be pretty comparable, it took them several seasons to get the ‘polished’ look the show now has.
For my mother’s 50th birthday we decided to go away – just the girls. my aunt, sister, niece, mother and i were all thinking some place far n’exotic. Around the time we actually started our planing we realized we wouldn’t be able to fly where we wanted since my sister was pregnant with Ethan. Somewhere close, somewhere far enough away to feel like you’re away, somewhere to relax… Victoria
. It’s the perfect long weekend getaway. Museums, history, shops, night life, and of course… the Hotel and Spa
we got hooked up with. We started doing the trips in 2002 and I even flew back for the “girls weekend” when i was living in Boston. We missed it this year – the timing wasn’t right and I was all ‘getting married’ n’ stuff :p
We’re looking at just postponing this year’s trip to the fall (to cancel it entirely would be a crime, really). I’m not sure I still have my ‘contact’ at the wicked Hotel in Victoria so we’re looking for another city. Another city that can handle 5 women from my family – from my Mom & Aunt to my niece who’s 6 years old – and of course my sister an I. Any suggestions anyone?
