made some wicked peanut butter and oatmeal cookies last night. praises to allrecipes.com – just tell them what you have in the cupboards and it spits out a recipe, calculates things, and everything tastes great – of course with a few embellishments on my end…mmm vanilla…

anson carter is back in the line up for today’s game and there’s talk of Cooke being ready for action – although – why come back 1 game before the olympic break? i think he’ll stay off until the nhl reconvenes after Turin.

we listened to an episode of Choogle On with Uncle Weed last night – in which john and i are mentioned. He makes note of the fact i am somewhat of a hockey fan and i have a decent knowledge base. although… recently on john’s podcast (much to his chagrin) i dissed Jovo – who is usually a reliable player – lots of minutes etc… just not my fave and i personally dont ‘get’ what all the ‘jovo is so great’ hype is about. but i’m sure in the future we’ll all have a chance to sit down and discuss, preferably while watching a game and with a beer in hand.

We also listened to the CBC Radio3 podcast while making dinner – it’s mostly music, featuring canadian artists – i dug it.

Check out DarrenBarefoot’s Oscar Contest. My mom usually has an Oscar party every year…including cheesy/tacky themed snacks and ballots to mark up with your wild guesses and hopeful winners’ names – gotta love her.

Tonight I go try on my dress and have it altered. I’m wearing my shoes around the office to break them in (and they’re just so fantastic and match my outfit, i couldnt resist) for 19 bucks you can’t go wrong.

Laura just propositioned me with a cinnamon bun the size of my head – so i’ll cut this off here and update throughout the day, as i am known to do.

…is what john said to me a couple times last night during the grammy’s. we didn’t get out to watch the PPV game or order it at home – we geeked out, made some dinner and watched tv instead, checking the score periodically. My boy Richard Park was back in the line up but John’s fave, Anson Carter, was out.

My sister asked me yesterday if the Canucks would win, I said they’re not so great vs the sucky blues lately but they do have that impressive home record. She asked if they would win by two, they ended up losing 4-2.

It’s such a fantastic morning, i think john’s out doing a video podcast right now – or something equally fun out in the sunshine while i’m stuck here at work, bringing home the bacon. speaking of which, im so incredibly hungry it aint funny. i’m craving egg.

something geeky something cute

(Photo Missing) This picture was taken when I was about a year old. Being born and raised in Vancouver I know quite a few things… It’s possible to get walk-rage at 8:15 in the morning, there are several degrees/classifications of rain (ie. showers, drizzle, pour, sprinkling etc.) and only certain variations require umbrellas… Surrey will always have a bad rep, even though some of the stories I hear about Maple Ridge make me cringe in Jerry-Springer-esque fashion. Expo 86 was fun and in high school free Grizzlies tickets from our basketball coach were entertaining at least. I also know that the Canucks will eventually win the cup – and someone will be in the stands with a sign that says “Believe”.

I have lived and travelled elsewhere, including 1 year in Boston working for a dotcom that got gobbled up about 4 times and I didn’t survive the last gobble… We were talking last night about living elsewhere in the future, particularly in John’s home state – now I won’t get too much into our personal conversation… but it’s obviously an option down the road. Walking home from work last night and looking at the mountains in the twilight… I would sincerely miss living in Vancouver but I value the fact that I can adapt, adjust and experience life elsewhere – pretty much like what John has been able to do here. And yes, as you can see, I am a natural blonde.

EDIT: I found two more old school pics – Jen with her ghetto-blaster and us sisters at Christmas – gosh aren’t we adorable? YAY 80s! except… what the heck does my mom have on her feet??

no hockey, just beaver

okay for a non-hockey post… Bell‘s aired its latest commericals featuring Frank & Gordon. Two animated beavers, one with the voice of Norm McDonald – they’re really cute and funny although i’m sure within the next few weeks of seeing them often during commerical breaks the novelty will wear off but still πŸ™‚ EDIT: I just kicked total a$$ at beaver air hockey.
Does anyone know if the Bay sells sporting goods? I know there used to be a section in the one in Surrey Place… and Guildford but I’m not sure about downtown… I just know there’s about 3 floors of womens’ wear and you still wouldn’t be able to find something you would actually want to buy and wear :p

Back to Canadian animals… Our Premier unveils an agreement for the rainforest on the BC coast with hopes to make everyone happy, loggers, first nations, and the endangered Spirit Bear.

Edit: Chris just sent over the Geek test (yes, what a busy day at work eh?) and of course I have to share my results: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Also… I know this may sound totally weird… but whenever I have something on my clipboard, ie. I just copied something and i’m waiting to unload/paste it somewhere on my puter… it feels as though my mouse is like Mario when he’s got a turtle shell he’s carrying around waiting to drop/release it using my right mouse button…. like i can physically feel it all loaded and ready to fire :p no more coffee for me *runs and hides now*

EDIT: One more plug Tod Maffin’s – how to do stuff
The T-shirt thing is cool and the rest is great πŸ™‚
