Almost dying on trips, and a hockey loss

Tonight, I talked to Corey for a brief time since he was in a Dumas, TX hotel room: he messaged me with some balloons, and said his trip was okay.. BBQ food, pizza, Thanksgiving, the HP movie, video games, etc. (his dad likes to say "Dumbass" instead of "Dumas," which reminds me that Eric likes saying "Dumb Fries" instead of "Dumfries" whenever we pass / go on that street!) I even yelled at him once... good times, indeed. I'll talk to him when he's home tomorrow if he doesn't almost die again: they were stuck for an hour behind a wreck in which someone DID die (and someone else lost an arm) since someone else spun out suddenly in the torrential Houston rain. This is why road trips suck, and you shouldn't ever go on a car ride. :P I seriously doubt I'll be online tomorrow at 5-6 AM, so tomorrow should be fine for the craziness. :D

The Canucks deserved to have some more goals than they did, but Curtis Joseph was brilliant in his 407th career win, which ties him with "Mr. Goalie" (Glenn Hall) for seventh place overall... the Phoenix Coyotes made two first-period goals stand up in their 2-1 win. They play the Colorado Avalanche tomorrow in their second game in 24 hours: today's game started at 7, and tomorrow's game starts at 6. Shane Doan missed a penalty shot, which Alex Auld was excellent at saving for us. Too bad we didn't win, but then we took a lot of penalties that erased our power plays... taking yourselves off three straight power plays late in the game is NOT good! The three stars were Keith Ballard, Curtis Joseph (second star on a night when you tie a legend's record and play really well?!), and Sean O'Donnell (who ended a 62-game goal drought).

In other news, former Canuck Marek Malik FINALLY had a goal in the longest shootout in NHL history: it took 15 rounds before the New York Rangers won against the Washington Capitals! If you can't play hockey anymore and you still love the game, you may as well coach as Wayne Gretzky chose to with Phoenix. I don't know what the weather will be like in Denver, either: apparently, they're expecting snow flurries. But that's part of travel, and the pilot of the plane the team's about to catch will figure things out!

"I only heard 3/4 of a G-string!"

This afternoon at Awana seemed to flow much better for me than it has in about a month, which is a good thing. Maybe I'm not quite so worried about certain things as I was before, or maybe Anita W.'s friendly "hi" did it for me, heh. Little Irene's so cute, coming up to me and saying hi! I told Mike that I still had his book (he said it was fine), and asked how he managed to get a paperback copy of the Da Vinci Code anyhow: the airport bookstore had it when he went to Hong Kong last winter! Melia tried on a pig costume that one of the aunties lent to us for the Dec. 10 concert (Mike's mom, ironically enough)... she looked so cute! Jason asked me if it was going to fit: I told him that it was for the kids.. hopefully, anyhow. I asked Sabrina (Chris L.'s girlfriend, not Anita W.'s sister) what her last name was: it turns out that she's Edmond's sister... wow, I didn't know that! Joey teased Emily C. about getting old soon right before I gave her a birthday card... as I told him: "I'm older than she is, so shush!" Haha. (I was writing a few more birthday cards today, and little Eric asked me about them: my personal birthday cards for my friends, whom you don't know!)

Afterwards, we were all standing around and talking. Julie, Tina, Emily, and Sarah were talking about guitars: Sam heard "I have a 3/4 one, and I need to get a G-string!" and instantly turned around and asked what they were talking about! HAHAHAHAHAHA! Although it's like what he learned in Psychology (which he sleeps through at the back since it's his first class of the day): it's not selective hearing like the girls were teasing him about. You can be half-listening to something, and you only pay attention if you hear your name or if something like that comes up! Tina wondered how he ever learned anything there, since she thought it was pretty boring! Emily asked if Sam was going to the Coquitlam worship tonight: he wasn't since he isn't in Timothy anymore, and couldn't get a ride all the way out there besides. (good for me and his mom, haha) As I told Emily half-jokingly: "We old people need to go home and REST!"

Too funny! Good times, indeed. :D

Gratitude and Bookworm Cracks

Palmer finally decided to buzz me... what a screen name: "It's Your Squishy".... o_O

He said that he had a crack that allowed you to register Bookworm for free... Copy (hold Ctrl while dragging and dropping) this file to the folder that Bookworm is installed in (normally C:\Program Files\PopCap Games\Bookworm Deluxe\ ) and then run the file. It lets you put in your own name, and gives you a valid serial number to punch into the program. (use the Quick Copy button for that)

At any rate, that made me teary-eyed (*sniff* I got something in me eye *sniff*)... but I'll never let him know that, haha. Must build up tough image for myself, heh. :P

Definitely reminds me of Corey's cracks, heh. No pervy remarks, please... I remember the time he tired to send me some crack for something or other (wow, I'm SO specific! :P), and it apparently had a lot of viruses. Ah well... only a couple days / nights until the craziness is BACK, baby! :D

Darn, I *knew* I forgot to buy something this morning! I needed gummi bears for suudsu (since I have milk now), and Nyquil for sleeping. Maybe next time, haha.

Trial expiring, finally shopping, Mimmu from Finland getting my Travis CD

I finally went food shopping today. Now I'm all sorts of satisfied. :D

Poo on people who say that things are in the mail when they really aren't. :(

My trial version of Bookworm Deluxe has already expired. Oh, poo. :(

(yes, "poo" is the word of the day around here... :P)

At least I have mint chocolate chip ice cream, black grapes, sunflower flax bread, bok choy, and a host of other goodies. I was good and avoided the Christmas stuff. (but I *did* have to hear the music, and it's only gonna get worse from here on in....) Now I'm actually getting tired... yay! I should go sleep.

Oh, and I just got a comment from Mimmu (ujiek)... my Travis CD, card, postcard, and magnet made it all the way to Finland. Whee! :D

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Smashing my old record by a country mile....

Oh, the things you do when you simply can't sleep... I downloaded / played Bookworm Deluxe, which definitely increases your vocabulary! This (trial) version has an action mode, where you have to constantly keep on top of red burning tiles: if those sink to the bottom and you don't use them in time, you die! I played that for an hour before I hit my stride... I just finished a 59:40 game (they time it for you) with this as my new high score: 671,880 / Level 25 / Lexographer on Friday, 11.25.05! :D

You can get the free trial version of Bookworm Deluxe by playing Bookworm to Level 2 and exiting out of the game: it'll give you an option to download the offline CRACK! (no, not literally :P)

I now have a crack that allows you to register Bookworm for free... Copy (hold Ctrl while dragging and dropping) this file to the folder that Bookworm is installed in (normally C:\Program Files\PopCap Games\Bookworm Deluxe\ ) and then run the file. It lets you put in your own name, and gives you a valid serial number to punch into the program. (use the Quick Copy button for that)

In case anybody related to me (literally or figuratively) is reading this, I really could not sleep. It's not my choice to stay up all night, even if I am a night person sometimes. I'd rather have had the sleep, especially with the busy weekend coming up. Guess I'll make arrangements with Eric M. later over MSN for the Fellowship AGM if he's not too tired or whatever: good thing he's now in my group instead of Steph's, since Daniel is having small-group outings. Phew!

Yup, I'll hopefully call the people I need to get in touch with before trying to go back to sleep. That means I get to play more of that game, since they come into work at 8:30-ish or so.

Alex Auld is a great penalty-killer!

The Canucks played the Sharks at home tonight and won 3-2, on US Thanksgiving. San Jose had the first goal, but then Wade Brookbank got his first of the season and third career goal. (it was a pretty one.. he has no career assists, but he was the last Canuck regular to get a goal!) There was a bunch of goal drama, with two goals being submitted for video review. First, it was Carter's since the net was knocked off its moorings by the defending Sharks player which WAS a goal... then it was a San Jose goal to see if the puck was clearly over the goal line, which was not a goal. Ruutu's parents were in attendance at this game too. :D

Alex Auld made a lot of good key saves, including three (one on a one-timer) during some frantic action around the Vancouver zone when the game was on the line. Man, we had some great PK on the Bertuzzi phantom call for goalie interference... and two goals in 55 seconds. Now we're 10-1 at home, and the Sharks had their 8th consecutive loss. Not much happened in the first two periods since the shot total was 22, but then when Vancouver scored those two goals in the third, it wasn't a snore-fest anymore! Evgeni Nabokov was a surprise starter, but he asked his coach Ron Wilson to put him in to avenge his shaky game against Calgary yesterday night. (and rookie Grant Stevenson's grandfather Glenn Hall "Mr. Goalie" was in attendance at that game!) The three stars were Ohlund, Bertuzzi, and Patrick Marleau.

Alyssa buzzed me, but I was busy playing Bookworm / listening to the hockey game / editing stuff. She said that since I liked reading, I should read some book called A Million Little Pieces by James Frey about a recovering addict. Maybe I'll check that out later, when I figure out what's going to happen with money and such. (I have to get Barry on the phone tomorrow, since he's replaced Mike... shopping, taxes, and other things... eep!)

I called my sister earlier, and apparently she might have lunch with my parents downtown next week. Sounds interesting, if I can get up... my sleep schedule is shot all to hell now. My parents say they'll take the family to Anton's around Christmastime when my brother's home.. that should be fairly interesting!

Got these questions from this QuestionClub LJ post by Arthurbulla. I'm going to post the survey in 50-question batches, like the original. No worries there! Five thousand questions and answers wouldn't fit as an entry, anyhow. :P

Another hockey win! / IP Address Locator

We won 3-1 against the Chicago Blackhawks: two goals in 68 seconds from Naslund and Kesler certainly helped in the second period, as did the insurance goal from Henrik Sedin in the third. The play was much better than Sunday's game against the Ducks, and the game was better officiated: cheers for Kerry Fraser, haha! Now the Canucks have won seven straight against the Hawks at GM Place. Nathan Smith got called up from the minors in Manitoba, and put in a good show for himself. Nikolai Khabibulin (with only 22 shots) and Alex Auld (the busier goaltender with 32 saves on 33 shots) were both sharp in goal, and it was like the complete opposite of Sunday's game: Tom and John said it was fun to call, heh. The three stars were Kesler, Mark Bell (who scored at 19:04 of the first), and Auld.

IP Address Locator... sweet! :D (thanks, Korcyzk!)

Church and hockey

Vancouver has a new mayor: Sam Sullivan. Oh, and the MLAs gave themselves a big fat pay raise a few days ago too.... lovely, not. :P

This morning, my parents were late picking me up: apparently, they told my sister that she was being rude when she suggested that they drive themselves and pick Michael's mom up if they were running late. Guess who was ready and waiting in the car first? Not my parents... my sister! (I swear, it's like they want to keep us waiting... probably the same rationale behind the "if you need a ride, you better be waiting for us no matter how late we are" thing, grr!) During the car ride, I told my sister about what Mom had said about the kid carrying a human body in what was obviously an instrument case: um, a kid can't possibly carry a heavy DEAD body around! DUH.

At church, Danielle wondered where I'd been: I gave her the low-down on the baby banquet, not feeling well, and Eric feeling tired the other night. Unlike what SOMEONE thinks, I wasn't skipping Fellowship... I didn't really want to go through the hassle of getting a last-minute ride / taking the bus last minute in the dark anyhow, so it was good that I had another night to myself to work. People just don't understand that, and at least Eric told me right when I was about to call him.

Eunice and Steph were discussing SIU LONG BAO... it's been about two months since we had an SLB night, so we definitely have to get one going! I was thinking about having one of those just the other night, haha. Justin also told me that his sister Fidela was getting back for a few days this week because of the US Thanksgiving.. yay! (I don't know about the Grey Cup game [where my sister and dad are going] next week since there's a HOCKEY GAME at night... I have no idea whether I'll even get a ride from Eric!) Later, I talked to Sheena about the hockey game at 1... usually, they're at night or late afternoon. Good thing I had a ride home early, though not as early as I wanted since we had to have lunch first. Vivian's sister Karen gave me a postcard from her... thanks, Vivian! I also asked Karen Chan whether Helen K. had had her baby yet: it's a boy named Nicholas, on the 16th. (three days after his mom's birthday!) Maybe I'll email her later on this week: if I call them, I might wake up the baby... not a good thing, heh.

My mom drove me home after lunch, but she HAD to stop at some textiles place. After that, she asked me: "So tell me, are you going with us?" Naturally, I asked her what the heck she was talking about... and then she accused me of being cranky. Um, I think I need some INFORMATION such as the destination / time / who else is going! Never mind what she said later about how she and my sister think Joe is the best prospect for me, or her singing Christmas carols... she drives me INSANE! (I was glad to get home, oh yes!)

Turns out she was talking about some mini-vacation she wants to take with the family after Kate, Melissa, and Jon's Toronto friends all go home in very early January.. and she wants me to decide by NEXT WEEK since they "have to plan everything." I guess I'll see about it later... not if it's on the weekend since I have stuff going on. Oh, and I learned that she told me the wrong thing: Jon actually gets back on Dec. 14 and stays till Jan. 10; it's still a month's break, almost! We'll have good times while he's here... he'll love Steph's "farting is an art, Rembrandt" birthday card, hahaha.

I did get to listen to some of the hockey game this afternoon: it was 1-0 when I first started listening, then it was 1-1. At the very end of the second period, Trevor Linden scored his second of the season on a penalty shot. Then the Ducks scored 47 seconds into the third: Rob Niedermayer from his brother, even.. afterwards, the Canucks scored at 12:12... faceoffs were important! The Ducks goalie played very well, and Brian Burke (the ex-Canucks GM and now-Ducks GM) said the same.. his wife Jennifer Mather (who used to be a news anchor here) is expecting a baby in early December. There were lots of hot tempers at the end of the game as well, mainly from Teemu Selanne who totally lost it by cross-checking Bryan Allen in the back of the head. (but our player didn't react to that... what poise!)

The two best Ducks players (Selanne and Scott Niedermayer) were gone at the end: 33 minor penalties in the game, with 10 power plays for each team! Lots of confusion as to how many people were on the ice because of coincidental minor penalties, but the Canucks evened their road record to .500 with a 3-2 win while handing the Ducks their 8th consecutive defeat (they're 7-10-4)! (Dan Cloutier had 31 saves, and Sami Salo had two goals) The three stars of the game were Scott Niedermayer, Sami Salo, and Samuel Pahlsson.

Just found out that Charlotte (charshark) got my Christmas card yesterday... sweet!
