Just Some Random Ponderings...

by - Sunday, January 06, 2008

Hmmm... this weekend has been an interesting one. For the first time since moving to Calgary I felt a little lonely. I guess spending a whole week with family and then coming back to your own apartment will do that to you... I am hoping I don't have this feeling very often!!

The IIHF 2008 Women's Under-18 World Championship is happening this week in Cowtown. I went last night to an exhibition game between Canada and Switzerland... and as much as I am one of the proudest Canadians you will ever meet (with only a few moments of denouncing my citizenship during international hockey losses)... I was kinda hoping that the Swiss would score a goal... they got their butts kicked... but they didn't give up and the Canadian girls didn't rub it in their faces - which to me is very much a Canadian thing to do... so every night this week I will probably be at the arena freezing my butt off cheering on Team Canada... I was surprised at the speed of the game and can only hope that some of the other teams put up a little bit better fight. If you are in Calgary I really suggest going out to support women's hockey - these girls may only be 17 and 18 - but they are the future of our Women's National team.

My patterned paper pile has exploded... so I am going to spend the better part of the afternoon organizing it... god knows I like to hoard the stuff and not use it... so I am going to take this opportunity (notice my word of the year??) to sort and purge... maybe see if a friend wants my leftovers.

My first hockey game of the year is tonight... one of the opportunities that I am going to take advantage of is not skipping games... if it means that I have to nap before the game (they are usually 10:15 on a weeknight!!)... I will go (unless I have plans... plans trump me sitting on the couch wasting away into nothing). My whole body will probably hurt tomorrow... but it will be a good hurt and well worth it!

What else??? I had a 'date' on Friday... what is it? He is a nice guy... but I have absolutely no attraction to him... not past friends anyways... why can't I just find a guy who likes me as much as I like them and we can end this hunting and gathering phenomenon also known as dating...

That's it for now folks... off to the craft room for some sorting fun!!

    And as for the dating, don't give up! You never know who you might find - even at a hockey game?!

    Hope the paper sorting went well!
