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.

Hey, an update

No lame excuses for not having my blog updated in, like, forEVER! Okay, scratch that, here are my excuses: I installed Linux on my system and was playing around with that, learning C++ on my own, and redesigning my website. There.

I can’t believe it. I’ve found a site on the web that’s cool, owned by a girl, and she likes hockey! I thought I was the only geek-hockey girl. Hahaha! Well, I don’t know if she actually plays hockey and I doubt she’s a goalie so I’ll still consider myself truely unique for the time being. 🙂

Um. People need to learn how to drive in snow.

It has been snowing all day! Normally I love the snow, but I absolutely hate driving in it. Unless there’s no one else on the road and you know how often that happens…

When I got up this morning and drove to the gym, the roads sucked. Bad. And then, later on, I had to drive to the other side of town. I thought they would have salted the roads by then but nooooooo. On the way back there was this stupid ASSHOLE so far up my ass I couldn’t see his headlights. I came up to a red light and when it turned green I had to drive up a hill, but I couldn’t get traction no matter how gently I gassed it, and the stupid fucker was STILL up my ass. God, I wanted to get out and strangle him. (Uh, oh, road rage!)

What the hell is wrong with people? Okay, there is snow on the road and it’s slippery. Is it safe to drive like Mario Andretti in a 4×4 and tailgate? Think, people!!!

And to lift my spirits, here is auite possibly one of the funniest sites I’ve ever seen: CHICKENHEAD – now fortified with corn!

The Price is Right

Can you believe that The Price is Right is still on TV? I remember watching TPIR when I was as young as 4 years old!

It’s got to have the record for the longest running game show. How do they do that? I certainly don’t see “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” running for less than half that long.

I looked it up and TPIR premiered on CBS on Sept. 4, 1972. Wow! that’s 3 years and 1 day before I was even born!

Randomness.

Okay so I’m a slacker and I’ve been slacking. It’s my job, what do you expect? I’ll touch on a few subjects just so nothing gets left out.

I spent a few hours today reloading my system. Wheeee, what fun. Now I have WinME installed and it’s working just fine. I had to wait for my ISP to come out with an Access Manager that would work with WinME. They did, and here I am.

Holy crap, have you seen what’s going on in Buffalo? They got like two feet of snow the night before and they were supposed to get another 12 to 15 inches last night. K-razy. We got snow here in Waterloo, but they got really dumped on.

Ugh, this presidential thing has just about made me hate politics even more — as if that was possible. I don’t even want to talk about it. Just tell me if they fuck it up, okay? No wait, don’t even do that.

I took my dog out for a walk in the field near my apartment today. He loves going to the field so he can sniff around for all the little creatures that live in it. Today there it was snow covered and he was bouncing around in the snow. You woulda thought he was an oversized rabbit if you could’ve seen him. Hahaha! He’s funny. He was burying his head in the snow so far that I couldn’t see it anymore!

He speaks!

I finally taught my dog how to speak. It really didn’t take very long to teach him but I didn’t think he would learn it very easily. Boy was I wrong!

Porter doesn’t bark a lot. In fact, he only barks when he gets really excited or when there’s other dogs around. And even then, he’s not constantly barking. So I wasn’t sure if teaching him to “speak” would go over well.

But now he does it…but only if I have a treat in my hand.
