HOCKEYHOCKEYHOCKEYHOCKEY!!!

Detroit took Nashville in 6 games... not so bad. The last game was a bit of a joke... oh well.

Monday night Montreal won 5-0 in game 7. It was a glorious game and they deserved to win. The mtl goalie (Carey Price) is merely 21 YEARS OLD!!! and a dreamboat.... call me ;)

Last night I turned the TV off when it was 5-2.... oh Calgary... You started so very strong... and then crapped the bed.... let's all hope the cup does NOT end up in California yet again. It was a great series to watch I must ad.

Onto Round 2 Predictions!!

Montreal vs. Philly... this is a tough one to call and also a historic battle. I am going to hope for Montreal in 6 but it could really go both ways. Briere does have highest points AND goals so far.... who knows!!

Detroit vs. Colorado... yet another tough match up! Detroit played supremely in their last game with Nashville, if they can keep that up then they will take it in 6 also. If they lose right off the bat I have an awful feeling Colorado could take it in 5-6.

Pittsburgh vs. New York... this is a tough call, Fleury (yet another young goalie at only 23) played really well against the Sens... I think I will stick with the Pens on this one.... in 5

SJ vs. Dallas.... no contest, SJ is going all the way. The are favourites and proved that in the series w/ Calgary

Ok whatever, no more hockey chat. I'm planning my trip to the East Coast and I'm pretty excited, I hope the weather holds up!!

No... I can't forget hockey... I have watched hockey everyday for the past 13 days... I'm sorry if you don't hear anything but HOCKEY for the next little bit...

Do you know that I am happier than I have ever been?
I feel great 99% of every single day.
I love being me, finally.


Have a fabulous weekend y'all! I hope you have as much warm sun as we do!

twitter

Found this cool addition to feed my blogging addiction. It's called twitter and it's to the left of this post. They are mini updates and they are fun and easy. If you go to twitter and sign up, adding it to your blog is SO EASY. Even I can do it.... and I (clearly) suck at html.

Anyway, just anther fun thing to waste time with!

Monday Monday

This week I will finally be back to work normally. I even took the bus to work today like I should be... only to forget my power-cord and have to walk all the way home. What a piss-off.

As I hoped, my weekend was full of hockey, shopping, and friends.

Hockey:
Detroit is making me proud, way to go boys!
Montreal lost last night but I think it's for the better, I don't think they would perform well in the next round if they got through round 1 in only 4 games.
Calgary is back on track, I hope that one goes to 7 games, those are great games.

That's all I care about right now.

Shopping:
Yesterday I drove into Toronto avec L & H, what a great day we had! We left early and the sun was shining!! We made it to the Eaton Centre by 12:30 and had great success at H&M, met R for lunch and E & J met up with us later on. It was just perfect, great weather, great buys, and GREAT friends. I can't wait for the summer when we are all back together.

Friends:
Friday night I went out with my *new* friend from EngPlay and we danced our faces off!! Then proceeded to do cartwheels on my neighbours lawn... where I broke my boot and we met a cat! It was pretty sweet. My body is sore though... the price I pay for being crazy.

This weekend I really felt that summer was legitimately on it's way. The sun makes such a differences. I can't wait to wear the dresses I bought and to pack up my big sweaters.

OH YES, I also spent some time planning my trip!! April 26th I depart for the EAST COAST!! I can't wait for some vacay!!!

Currently trying to update my template.... not going so well!!!!!

UPDATE: So I sort of achieved what I wanted... mostly a large picture of Stevey Y holding the cup. It should really be bigger though...

NHL playoffs start today and everyone I know is studying for exams, I'm going to watch the opener ALONE.... I will be cheering for Pittsburgh, FYI

No patricular theme...

My days of busy/crazy work are over today, I should be able to sit at my desk for more than 20 minutes at a time now. This means more posting! (HIP HIP HURRAY!! - I know you all said it too)

This morning I had an internal argument that I have had way too many times: cost vs. health. I of course mean eating out. I don't have a lunch today because I haven't been home long enough to make anything and I HATE sandwiches. Thus I must pick something up for lunch. I of course want to eat something good but it's going to cost me!! Yesterday I had a few errands to run and some necessary things to pick up (underwear, soap, etc - NECESSITIES!!!) well... $100 later... I have everything. How did I blow that on pretty much NOTHING!! That underwear better be the greatest stuff I've ever had... Now today I just renewed my passport, another $100 out the window. Everything I bought yesterday and today was completely necessary but come on now, that is just unreasonable. I suppose I am put slightly at ease by the fact that I am working a few extra hours and my tax return will be here soon.

So that's the first half of the cost vs. health battle. The health part is pretty obvious. I have been busting my butt at the gym but I'm only putting in a little effort on the health side. I feel like if I really kicked up my healthy food intake I would be having much greater success. Oh crap....I just had a thought that I have had way too many times in the past month.

I have to give up french fries.

If I had to eat one food for the rest of my life, there is no question AT ALL that it would be french fries.

Let's try 1 week. Seriously, I'm at everyday right now. Next Tuesday I will try to post and hopefully I will be able to say I haven't had one of those devil sticks all week.

This is the hardest thing I've ever done.... Engineering is easy compared to what I'm about to embark on. Here goes nothing....

Great weekend!!!

What a difference great weather makes!!!

This weekend I had the EngPlay. This is a play put on entirely by engineering students. This year it was 9 small skits, I starred in 3 of them. IT WAS AWESOME!!! My brother managed to make it to the Friday show and loved it, my aunts and cousins came to the Saturday show and thought it was wonderful also!!! My mom got some very sweet phone calls afterwards, too bad she couldn't make it. It is a bit of a drive.

Friday night was also the End Of Term (EOT) party. So after the play I headed over to the engineering lounge, had some drinks and then headed TO THE SPUR!!!

Side note: The Silver Spur is a karaoke bar in Waterloo, it is also 4 blocks from my house. I love going, it is almost always full of my friends and if it's not I ALWAYS make new friends. Oh, it is slightly sketchy but... I really don't notice it anymore. Thank goodness!

I sang Meatloaf, John Michael Montgomery AND Bon Jovi. What a great lineup!

Saturday was pretty relaxed. I got a much needed sleep in and then went for a run through the park. It was so sunny and tons of people were out walking. It felt really good to be outside.

DAVELA also came back to town to see my show. DAVELA is my roommate/BFF. He is my most favorite person ever. He is also moving to Saskatoon in 2 weeks. I am mildly upset. He's moving with his girlfriend, whom I love, so I really should just be happy for him. It's hard though considering we have only been a couple of hours apart for the past 4 years, if not just down the hall from each other. This past term has been awesome, it's been Dave, Me and Pete (lived w/ Pete since rez). We all got along so well and I will be sad to give that up.

ANYWAY, Dave and I went for lunch of PIZZA and BEER. What a combo. After which I came home and got ready for the last show!!

The show went really well, there were some extra lines thrown in that were... slightly raunchy. I don't think my family minded though. Afterwards I got 2 gorgeous bouquets of flowers and big hugs from everyone. What a great feeling! I love my family so much!!!

Saturday night was YET AGAIN The Spur... for a friends birthday. Dave and I went out with intentions of having tons of fun as it was most likely our last party night together. Well, we had fun. We sang, we danced, we laughed, we (I) almost cried. It was perfect. AND I didn't even have to wear a jacket it was so warm!!!

Sunday was more sleep in and then I decided it would be a great idea to do a work-out with my roommate... who is a work-out fiend. The first part SUCKED!! Sprinting and running is not my think it seems. Once we got to the park and started doing other things though it felt really good. He knows what he's doing and I kept up for the most part.

I was super exhausted when I got home but I felt awesome. Then it was COOKING TIME!! The agreement that Dave made with me was that if he drove up to see my show, I would have to make him dinner. I made chocolate cupcakes (per request), bacon wrapped tenderloin, roasted veggies, salad, and cheese/bread platter. Everything turned out great and Dave enjoyed it all also.

I know weekend updates are sort of boring but I had the BEST weekend so I had to write it down somewhere so I wouldn't forget it.

I hope it is sunny where you are!!!

as if

David Beckham is super hot.

He was on Leno tonight and he does not have a hot voice. It's dorky and high pitched. What the eff dude?

I guess I'll have to do the talking ;)
