As for me, I’m back at work this morning. I opted to help out on the stat holiday (January 2nd) so in lieu of that day off I have my entire birthday off (the following monday). It shouldn’t be too bad considering I’m just doing a 5 hour shift on the 2nd.
everyone is talking about Bertuzzi being on the olympic team and how outraged they are – how that’s not what canadian hockey is about and he’s a criminal and YADA YADA…. but um…I’ve barely heard ONE person (in all the articles I’ve read or all the podcasts I’ve listened to) mention Dany Heatley.
Does no one remember Dan Snyder – the TEAMMATE he KILLED?
This morning we went over to mediaco for brunch. they’re such a great company and it allowed me to catch up with my old boss/coworkers and john was able to get some more face time in with the potential employer – keeping in touch and networking is always good.
Tomorrow night, after Lolo heads to her parents’ in North Van and Jen & family head back to Surrey – we’re going to take a walk and come home for a nice dinner.
Anne is in town this weekend (from Toronto) but we probably won’t see her and Gerry until New Years. Remind me to get her a bday/xmas present. She’s a Christmas baby and I have to make sure to get her two gifts, once for each occassion, it’s only fair.
It’s a shame we can’t see John’s family but there we’ll be sure to make up for it in the year ahead – and everyone’s always welcome over to our place, anytime (just give us a bit of notice first 😉 hehe)
I don’t work again until Wednesday so I probably won’t have much time to blog so…
Best wishes to all, however you celebrate the Holiday season.
Merry Christmas!! (I’ll throw that in there for my mom)
“See the poster that won the Hockey Day in Canada contest. The winning team will spend Hockey Day in Canada with your Vancouver Canucks and CBC Television!”
There are some upcoming events in the city, including MANY places to go on New Year’s Eve (if you’re not on our invite list for the ‘bash’ at our house :p) I found out yesterday that Reel Big Fish and Goldfinger are going to be at the CCC. The last show I saw there was probably Less Than Jake in 1999…. my friend Michelle interviewed them for the Ubyssey right after. I’ve seen them the most of ANY performer(s) besides Matthew Good. Runner up would be David Usher (Moist) and then rounding out the top 5 (err 6), Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Gob. I can’t wait to get out and see more shows. The focus has been on hockey lately but there’s also a LOT more going on in this city. I’ll have to keep my ear to the ground and hopefully find some tix to a good show John’s looking forward to – I still have to make it up to him for bailing on the International Noise Conspiracy show… sorry – but my sis only turns “24” once 😉
Hockey Day in Canada is January 7th, 2006. Check out the link for all the resources you would need to properly celebrate a Hockey Day (including a Canucks game vs Calgary) and a link to the Hockey Night in Canada theme song for you to play over and over and over again.
