Patrick Roy is a clown.

OMG. I just about fell off the couch from laughing so hard when Patty Wah-boy floofed on that goal last night. And “floofed” is being extremely nice.

I’m very glad the Wings won. I paid particular attention to Hasek last night — I’m totally bewildered. I just don’t understand his style! He practically takes a catnap after making the initial save on a shot, and still manages to get a shutout. Wow. I just hope he can do it again in Game 7. 🙂

Why is it that sometime between 2:30 and 4 I get extremely drained…ugh. Maybe it’s because it’s cold in here and my body is tired of pumping blood to my mousing hand. My hand is like ice right now.

Go Leafs!

I haven’t posted in days! Is that some indication that I may have a real life going on, away from the computer? Sadly, no. I’ve spent nearly the last 4 days solid working on that new thingy I was talking about. Ok, not really “solid” but damn close. The good news is that I finally have it working. It should be up within the next few days, depending on how much time I get to work out the details.

Damn those Avs. Rat-bastard Forsberg. Grrr. The Wings will have to win in 7 games now.

And tonight is another big game for the Leafs. They must win tonight, or they’re out. All of the Carolina/TO games have been very close, so I expect tonight’s game will be the same, but please no overtime, my heart can’t take it!! If the Leafs win tonight, they’ll win the next one too and take the series, I’m sure of it.


Spam rant

There are two types of e-mail I can’t stand (other than spam).

The first is the one you get that tells you all about a horrible virus that will completely destroy your system if you open the attachment — and most of the time, the so-called “virus” isn’t even a virus. Some unsuspecting dimwit (see gullibility virus gets an e-mail in their inbox and decides he (or she!) should warn every single person in the address book. Now, let me tell you…this is the wrong thing to do. First, go to a reputable site like Symantec and do a search for the “virus”. Chances are, it’s just a hoax and the only harm it does is get your panties in a bunch…and everyone else the hoax gets sent to. Don’t forward it. Ever. Even if it isn’t a hoax. Instead, reply with this to the person that sent it to you in the first place.

Second, there is no way forwarding a single e-mail to X number of people will get you free stuff or free money. It just doesn’t happen! You would think after someone does it once and doesn’t get whatever-it-is, they’d figure it out. But, noooooo. If someone sends you one of these kinds of e-mails, reply with this. But then again, the sender is probably an idiot, and won’t get it.

Oh, there are three kinds.

I forgot about the kind that warns you about The Dangerous Situation that you should watch out for, and make sure you send it on to everyone you know! Not everyone realizes they should park in well-lit areas and not trust strange men. Right? (Sorry, no sarcastic response for this one, you’ll have to come up with your own.)

[Update: Send them to Glurge.]

Don’t send me stupid shit. I’ll have to kick your ass.

My first game of the year

My first game…well, wasn’t great. I let in three goals in the first 5 minutes, but at least only one of them was a soft goal. :\ We lost 4-1. It was our first game of the year, I’m sure things will get better.

To make me feel better, I found this cute little wallpaper for my desktop. I got it from Little Miss Springfield – it’s Lisa Simpson in goalie gear. 🙂 Hack the bone! Hack the bone! Hahaha. There are some other interesting ones too, check it out.

I’ve got to go help out at the co-op halloween party, go to a friend’s hockey game, and then go play again at Albert McCormick. I hope I can find some time to rest!

Taking up space.

Um, I’m not putting much into this thing am I? Hehehe, oh well. I’m a pretty busy girl. It’s amazing how I can be so busy and only work 25 hours a week. 🙂

I’m heading out to pick-up down the street in about 15 minutes. I’m so excited about this weekend. I don’t know if I’m nervous or not… And today was such a nice day, I was happy! I bought a skirt at Bi-Way for $4. That’s my accomplishment that I’m proud of today, hahaha. And I got some shelves for my closet for $15. What a bargain. I’ve already put them together and sorted out my stuff onto it. I guess I’ve been trying to keep busy.

Uh oh, I’m hungry.

After I come back from hockey I’m going to take a quick bath and then I’m out the door to Toronto for the weekend. I finally get to meet Tam AND I get to watch her play. Plus I’ve got some info for a really cool hockey school in August that I want to show her to see if she wants to go. That’d be cool. If not, we can still do the Rick Heinz one. The RH one would probably be better for drills and stuff…but then it’s all guys/boys and it wouldn’t be as fun as staying in a cabin on a lake for the week with a group of girls and going to an all-female hockey school. I dunno, it’s a toss-up for me.

K, I’m gonna go eat a banana before I go.

Content is good.

Aaaah, I’m actually very content with my life right now. Funny how things go in cycles. I could be worrying but right now I’ve decided the things I could worry about just aren’t worth it. I’ve got a refridgerator full of groceries, money in my pocket, gas in my car, and I’m playing in a hockey game in about an hour and a half. What could be better? Okay, there’s a lot better, but I’m content!

I’m missing my chest pads. Thankfully Nancy will be there tonight and she’ll have her stuff. She’s the same size as me too. Whew! I think we left my chest pads at the Mullet Cup last weekend. *eek* The guy that was having the party is gone for the week so I have to wait until he comes back before I can find out if he has them. If they’re not at his house then I think I’m SOL. I needed new pads, and of course I’d love to get new ones, but I know that I don’t need to get them right now. But if I have to, then I’m certainly not going to complain!

I’ve been really busy this week for some reason. I think with babysitting during the morning it really helps me. It’s enough work to give me some cash and keep me from going insane with boredom, but it also not too much so that I have time to do things around the house and run errands. It’s helping us out in the money department a lot. I’m going to be using it to pay for hockey, go to Brampton next weekend for 2 days, and to go to Michigan the weekend after.

Welp, I had better get ready for hockey.

Surreal writing

I was talking to W last night about writing. I’m glad he likes writing, I think it’s really cool and he’s very good at it. Well, that inspired me a little. I have very, um…weird, dreams. I know, who doesn’t? But I tend to remember them very vividly. Usually anyway. Sometimes it’s very disturbing to know what I dreamed about. Anyway, I had one the other night that wasn’t disturbing, just strange. I asked W if he knew of anything such as “surreal writing” or something similar to it. Kind of like Salvadore Dali in written format. He said that he has heard of such a thing, so I told myself to remember to look it up in the morning. I’m surprised I remembered because I was drifting off to sleep at the time.

I looked it up and this is what I found: Surreal Writing

It seems to exist mainly in poetry format. I can do that, but I want to try a story-like format first. I’m going to put up a section on my writings. I have a little bit I can put up right now and maybe I can expand that a little.
