the live action simpsons opening that i blogged about earlier this month will be used in tonight’s episode. we just got back from fort langley with my parents and have OD’ed on coffee and peanut butter bars. time to veg out, maybe watch the count of monte cristo (an all-time fave) and be bums for the rest of the weekend. oh yeah, did i mention we got up at 7am today to go running? good stuff.

i used to hate the wedge segment on much music – it was so “kooky” now im coming to find that it contains all my current favourite artists, songs, and great things i have not yet discovered.

what’s on right now? sixteen military wives – the decemberists. john’s having a riot. just thought i would direct you toward the cutest lil video short that we just saw. it’s for Wintersleep – Fog. check it out – it’s good and canadian and less evil than mostly all other much music programming.

& our dirty laundry

i’m hoping to get john’s sister’s permission to post a pic of one of her paintings on my site. i really like her work. for now, check out her site at www.elizabethbollwitt.com.
hopefully we’ll be able to catch john’s family on ichat and have a video conference this weekend as we did the other week – we were able to join in the March Birthdays celeberation at his parents’ house via the laptop.

so much to do this weekend so little time. heading to surrey for lexi’s 6th bday tomorrow. running a million n one errands tonight – including picking up a gift from the registry at the bay that we’ve been putting off… and we’ll have to get to some much needed grocery shopping. also, our building is REALLY great but you have to pay to do laundry – so we need to get some loonies n quarters so we can clean up a lil bit this weekend … we have got a lot of clothing…

and for some reason this afternoon i ranted for a couple mins about people with funny names. somehow i got to Paul Bellini. whenever i mention bellinis to john he thinks of Paul – not the drink. i have never been formally introduced to the on screen work or contest known as “touch paul bellini” – although i did just google it and there’s a wiki site all about him. time for home – happy weekend everyone.

just for peanuts

so john‘s got this fascination with squirrels – not just any though, stanley park big-as-cat-squirrels. you always see people feeding them and they’re so used to people they basically stalk you/hunt you down til you empty your pockets. while watching (i forget which show) on WGN there was a commercial for money mart where a dude tells a story of being mugged by squirrels. of course this made john giggle extensively and it made me wonder hmm dont tell the stanley park squirrels – they may get ideas… so i’m browsing fark.com this morning and come across this article reporting a dog mugging a boy for his cell phone. animals are fun :p

laura might beat us there

going to watch the game now – we could get the PPV at home but come on, it’s more exciting watching it with dozens of strangers and someone pouring your beer for you. 2nd of 3 games in a row vs the oilers… do or die – gotta make something happen – go canucks! (this will be edited drunkenly later, and depending on if they win or lose…and how much i either celebrate or drown my sorrows, it could be rather amusing)

UPDATE: 3/24/2006 08:43:00 AM what a game! although on the walk home all john could say over and over was “i HATE shootouts!” the crowd gathered below us outside on Robson street looking in restaurant windows to catch a glimpse of teh action may have thought otherwise about the excitement of the event.

i thought that smyth’s shot was indecisive and in that case they dont award a goal… but if you gotta look up the rule book and blah blah blah it was in… i guess… doesnt matter though because jarrko and bert put their shots home and we came up victorious. we’re now tied for 6th with anaheim in the west. it sucks it went to OT so edmonton got a point as well but it’s a start… our heads might finally be out of our butts.
