New Vancouver goalie / Slugbutter's Evilness

Tonight's 5-4 game was kinda interesting, at least from a goalie standpoint. The first Edmonton Oiler goalie (Mark Morrison) let in two goals on four shots, so of course he was pulled in favor of Jussi Markkanen. Alex Auld wasn't playing for us: Maxime Ouellet played in his first NHL game this year. Ouellet made several key saves, but then let in at least one soft goal... he was a loser in his debut for us, letting in Horcoff's slapshot. Opening up a six-game homestand with a loss... aiya! We picked up a point, but Edmonton had two...

The Canucks never trailed in this game, but gave up three power-play goals and a shorthanded goal. Edmonton tied the game at 2-2, and then Todd Bertuzzi scored 26 seconds later... about 90 seconds after that, Anson Carter scored to give the Canucks a 4-2 lead. Unfortunately, two Oiler goals went through to make the score 4-4. These two teams had a shootout in the second game of the season: Raffi Torres scored twice and once in that shootout on his 24th birthday.

We had 4-on-4 overtime... we should have been able to win the game going into the third period since the score was 2-2 then. But the Canucks had a bunch of penalties in a row. Michael Peca scored 4:08 in overtime... the Canucks can't win in their own division (5-7-3), but they'd better start soon. Now they're 13-1-1 on home ice, with this second loss on home ice. This holiday homestand's going to be important for the team, too.

The three stars were Bertuzzi, Stoll, and Hemsky. Edmonton's back in town on Wednesday, so that will be interesting. The Canucks used Ouellet in this divisional game (instead of Monday's non-divisional game) because Marc Crawford's aware of the media pressure on young goalies, and had a plan. He thinks Maxim gave the team a chance to win, heh.

In other NHL news, Wayne Gretzky is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the Phoenix Coyotes bench because his mom has lung cancer. Owner-player Mario Lemieux has a recurrence of his heart problem (an irregular heartbeat), and the Panthers' road losing streak has now stretched to 13 games.

How evil are you?

Early breaks, bombing the army regiment, blog catch-up, quizzes

Yay for early breaks and excusing myself! I don't feel like going out today anyhow, and knew I'd get up late. Although I should have avoided last week's horror show, too... ah well, live and learn. :D

Oh yes, and my sister told me that she bombed (AKA "pooped at") an army regiment the other day. Haha, that's our family for you!

I've been catching up on blogs, as well: Jon's apparently been updating more than before, and his descriptions of a Pho party at the Pho Lady are hilarious! Viv's still missing home since she's in France, but she'll be back in May. Steph's been frustrated because of certain reasons (and doing a lot of Blogthings quizzes), but she'll be all right. Spoz is doing his normal weekender stuff... and Dave had his iPod stuck on a Black Eyed Peas song, but got it working again. (and will have his wisdom teeth out soon, too... aiya!)

You Are Basic Panties

You are a laid-back chick with a really natural beauty.
You can make unwashed hair and minimal make-up super sexy.
Men tend to notice that you show the "real you" - and they appreciate it.
And while basic makes boring for some, it looks classic on you.

You Are a Fruitcake!

You taste like nothing else in this world.
And get ready, you're about to get tossed!

Your Christmas Song Is

Santa Baby

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex
And cheques
Sign your 'x' on the line
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

You're a bit of a greedy kid this Christmas...
You'd like for Santa to be your personal sugar daddy!

Help for pink marshmallows! / Wallet contents / Questions 1901-1950 of 5000 / Quizzes

Eric picked me up in a car I'd almost never seen before: the family got it a few years ago, but it wasn't insured till recently. It was good to see him, since I hadn't seen him last week... turns out he was sick, but he's better now. On the way to church, we listened to a sports radio station discussing hockey teams possibly moving to other cities: Winnipeg, Regina, Houston, and a bunch of others are apparently interested. (we also discussed the world junior hockey championships: he described Steph's friend Melissa as "that girl who likes the Colorado Avalanche," haha) At church, I talked to Christon / Karen Lew / Karen Choo / Frances / Ivan / Steph / Randal / Phil / Margaret / Nathan... mostly just saying hi and commenting on my Santa hat. (it may be red, but I'm not wearing it on Valentines Day / Canada Day... or to concerts!) Randal advises me to give it till January, but I have this thing where Christmas is over the minute it hits 12:01 AM on Dec. 26! :P

For some reason, my parents were at church tonight as well: it turned out that my mom was giving a talk about flaxseed muffins (among other things) to one of the fellowship groups. Steph thought that I'd go home with them, but since I didn't KNOW that they'd be at the church (because they never tell me anything!), I opted to go home with Eric. He, Nate, and Phil weren't done Bible Study yet in any event since they spent too long chatting. Even if I *had* known that my parents were at church, I still probably would have gone home with Eric.. I'd be happier that way, heh. (besides, Eric and the guys would certainly have wondered where I was when they came out!) Nathan was holding a big bag full of cranberry and nuts cereal, and looked kinda sick: it was good that he went home afterwards to sleep! Eric and I went home as well, and he kept insisting he was Agent Spongebob Squarepants! (haha) He also sprinkled a lot of Strong Bad / Homestar Runner references into the conversation: I think we were both a little nuts, haha. ("You must help the pink marshmallows since you have the power of pink! Help them by eating them so that they can regroup in your stomach! I'm in a band called Limousine! Are you going to drink some suudsu?") Then there was something on the radio about the Minnesota Vikings and some stripper party for the rookies aboard a cruise ship... and the Seattle Sonics and Key Arena. o_O Ah well, the ride home was very enjoyable.. hee hee. :D

Corey just told me that he asked his family for chains, leather, rubber tubing, and metal for Christmas.... and now he tells me that it's exercise equipment AFTER he lets my imagination run wild! *bops him upside the head* Aiya... these boys that love teasing me.... :P

Shopping, memory, Eric coming on RIGHT when I think of him, and quizzes

Today, I let my hormones rule my shopping: why else would I get a bottle of Advil (on Erin and Eunice's advice for cramps), chocolate soy milk, and four litres of Dutch chocolate ice cream? :P

I also managed to piss off an old lady at the supermarket. She only had one bottle of cooler / wine, and had already asked to get ahead of someone behind me with a few items. I took a long time because I decided at the last minute (while in the checkout line) that I wanted a few microwaveable meals, so sent Roman off to get them. Normally, I'd be sorry about it... but with my mood today, I just didn't care. Apparently, today was "remembering things at the last moment" day for me... while I was at the post office picking up Candy's package, I was almost out the door when I realized that I had to mail Kyle's card. Good thing I was quick! I'd tell you what's in Candy's package, but she's given me strict instructions not to open it till Christmas Day. Fair enough! (I also meant to do bottle return today, but didn't... sometime in the next two weeks, heh)

Later, I was wondering just where Eric M. got to since he wasn't on MSN. Just a minute later, he popped up to say he'd be here at 7:10-ish. Then he wondered what was up with my grammar because I used the "where you be" construct on him, haha. (as in "I was wondering where you be just now!") I joked that it had been taken over by the weirdo police... who were like the karma police, only not really. Then he asked whether I'd had any suudsu since the weirdo police might also be the suudsu police. HAHA, no... but I probably should one of these days...

For those of you wondering what suudsu is, watch this... PURE GENIUS!

You Are a Chocolate Martini

You're an elegant drunk, who only likes the best bars and the most expensive drinks.
A bit of a cheapskate, you're likely to mooch ten-dollar drinks off both friends and strangers.

You should never: Drink and dash. You're gonna get caught leaving someone with the tab!

Your ideal party: A posh celebrity party you crash, with an open bar.

Your drinking soulmates: those with a Classic Martini personality.

Your drinking rivals: those with a Blueberry Martini personality.


You are 46% Extroverted and 47% Chaotic

- Water people exhibit benevolence. These type of people are charitable, have a kindly disposition, and promote goodwill. They are concerned with the welfare of others. Where other people are concerned... they are kind, generous, and philanthropic. They seldom harbor hostility. They derive pleasure from doing good deeds.

Core - They are cooperative, companionable, hospitable, and socialable. They are true humanitarians, and are concerned with the welfare of other people. They are called servants or servers because of their unselfishness and sincere devotion to the welfare of humanity. They unconditionally come to the aid of the sick and the unfortunate just as they would for one of their own family, and most often ask nothing in return.

Nature - They have strong feelings and sensibilities. They tend to make decisions based on their emotions rather than by reason. Although they are emotional in nature, they do not outwardly express it. Their feelings are hurt easily, but they tend to not let it show.

Drives - They are deeply concerned about the welfare of their friends and family. They also care about what other people think and say about them. An insensitive remark from someone can hurt their feelings deeply, although they may not show it. They give of themselves and their material possessions freely to help a less-advantaged person gain confidence and stature. They will go all-out where close friends or family are concerned. It is not easy to make friends with them because they are skeptical and naturally shy. They will be generous and kind to a certain point, but when you gain their confidence, you will have an all-weather friend who will stand by you through your struggles.

Vice - They will suppress the truth by words, writing, and conduct to do damage to another. This is not spite. This is their non-violent way of getting their revenge. Milder cases include stretching the truth a little, not exactly untrue but not the real truth. They are emotional people, and tend to get carried away in the heat of a situation. These people are not prone to physical violence normally, but being of an emotional nature and having the tendency to let things build up inside them, they can become extremely abusive.

Graphic Avatars / Tonight's WEIRD 5-4 hockey game! / Celeb match

Kickass modifications on the graphic avatar that Erik showed me some time ago. :D

This was the only time the Canucks and the Philadelphia Flyers would meet, and it would ultimately prove to be a weird game. The game at the Wachovia Center got delayed for half an hour because of the icy weather conditions outside (but the building was certainly packed!), which prevented the Flyers from getting to the building on time for practice / warm-up. We learned that Dan Cloutier would be out for the year, which of course presents opportunities for Alex Auld, who started his tenth straight game. The Flyers had seven rookies in their lineup, which they hadn't had since 1992-93. (Philadelphia Flyer-Phantoms, anyone?) But their coaching staff is good with them, since the team has a good record so far.

Sample of weirdness: Baumgartner scored his first goal in 22 games. Wade Brookbank and Mike Richards had a collision, which resulted in both of them being injured. Daniel Sedin apparently scored a goal right when the second period ended, but the horn sounded to end the frame 3/10ths of a second earlier. The teams traded harmless shots (55-footers) which resulted in goals. Jeff Carter also got injured when a puck hit his head. Vancouver scored two goals in 37 seconds early in the third, which resulted in the Flyers goalie (Robert Esche) wanting to soothe his bruised ego (4 goals on 20 shots), so a change in goal was made. Once the new goalie (Anteno Niitymaki, from Finland) was established, Anson Carter scored on the first shot he had to face. (heh, welcome to the game, dude!) Auld apparently sat on the puck to make a save, but they jammed the puck in for a goal. (pucks in close?) Naslund got two back-to-back penalties, but the Canucks survived a frantic late rally by the Flyers. (including two chances in the last minutes for Michael Knuble)

The shots on goal were 44-25 in favor of the Flyers, with 21 coming in the third. They won for the first time when trailing after two periods. Marc Crawford got his 389th career win tonight, and Alex Auld got his fourth win in five games... and the team swept the Eastern road trip! (fourth consecutive win) Speaking of Auld, he needs to work on pucks in his equipment. Three stars: Anson Carter, Ohlund, and Michal Handzus. ("zoooo" chant, heh) Daniel Sedin had two assists, and Henrik Sedin had three.

Your celebrity match is Adrian Brody. You like your men passionate and spontaneous.

200 Greatest Rock Guitarists / Celebrities' Real Names

Disclaimer: This list is NOT mine. I got it from Digital Dream Door. I also happen to wonder about some of the inclusions on this list...

Someone I know also has this to say about Zakk Wylde: "He's a one-trick pony, and a d*ckhead to boot. He came into Pop's (a local club for hard rock) one night after a show. Ozzy was with him, and they decided to get onstage for a bit. He also appeared to be pretty cranked up... coke, I suppose. So Wylde starts playing Brad's guitar, and he's yelling at Chris (drummer) to play faster. Chris wasn't real familiar with Paranoid, and didn't speed up. Wylde got pissed and just throws Brad's guitar on the floor. Ozzy, to his credit, simply gave them an apologetic look and walked offstage."

The asterisks next to a name denote that they died, and "Solo" means they're a solo guitarist. Heh.

Christmas card from someone who may have moved on... / Snipping URLs

This morning, I got a Christmas card from someone who may have moved on. I've been wondering whether to open it or not. The last time I was in this situation (2003), I eventually opened the card and glued it to construction paper... later on, I junked it since I didn't want any reminders of said person. But right now, I don't know if I want to open it or not... o_O


On another note, Carol just told me about Snip URL to make links smaller. Reminds me of Tiny URL, heh.

Vacuums / Questions 1751-1800 of 5000 / How I Taste

Dragon quotes, glue, cards, body wash, lip balm, noodles, Poppycock, lychee bubble tea, hockey, quiz

My sister emailed me a quote she found in someone's signature earlier while going through some office emails: "Do not trifle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup." She thought I'd like it, and she's right: it reminds me of Josh (Spocko) and how he greeted me with that on MSN once. (with "meddle" in place of "trifle")

I went to the mall earlier to buy glue and mail cards: of course, I returned home with more than just that. Note to self: check Shoppers Drug Mart / London Drugs FIRST for boxed cards before checking Carlton's / Hallmark Cards. That was more money I didn't need to spend. At least I got some more lip balm (Blistex with SPF 15... Triple Tropical, Strawberry Banana Limited Edition, Melon Medley, and Berry Explosion), Poppycock (original / cashews / chocolate), noodles, and body wash. (Life's chamomile / water lily / vitamin E, and Zest "morning garden") Of course, I also got a lychee bubble tea with milk... Death By Chocolate will be the death of my wallet, haha.

I got home to find out that the Canucks won against the New York Rangers 3-2. :D

Now, to finish gluing my received cards to paper and decorating the corners with stickers, putting my received postcards in a binder and decorating the corners with stickers, putting my received stickers on paper, decorating my bought Christmas cards with Christmas seals / stickers.....

Interview with an honest boss... hahahaha!

Christmas cards and attempted package deliveries

I got four Christmas cards today, along with an attempted package delivery notification... I suspect it's Candy's since she told me about it last week sometime. Since they hold these things for a few days (and since I can't get the location changed to Richmond Centre), I'll have to wait till Barry's well again. I seem to have bad luck that way, since Mike got sick too! Oh well... I'd ask my parents, but only if I'm really bothered by it, heh.

Soleta got me a card with penguins on it, plus various stickers and such: two sheets of Old Navy stickers, one "Stop It!" racism day March 21 red hand sticker, one Fredericton police force sticker, two temporary tattoos ("I love pets and animals" and a female symbol), a fleur-de-lis, a QSC sticker, a "PEI Pride" sticker ("Building for the future!"), a "take your bias and shove it!" sticker, a University of PEI decal, a Kingston Police junior constable sticker, and a "Positive Space for GLBT people and their friends" sticker from the elementary teachers' Federation of Ontario.

Next up was a card from Shannon (tearfulgoodbyes)... man, she has neat handwriting unlike me! Kim (kimmers_81) got me a card from Australia with a nice summer scene: mountains, forest, and water! (I looked on the back of the card: it's The Hazards at Freycinet National Park in Tasmania, Australia) Amber (randomlancila) also sent me a lovely Christmas card: darned right we'll keep bumping into each other at LJ! (we did in an LJ News post a few months ago!)

Since I glue all my received cards to construction paper (just like my mom did... I swear I have to find another method in case I want to junk certain cards), I need to go to the mall on the next bus and buy some more glue. While I'm there, I might as well mail Sarah and Cara's cards. (and eat something, haha)

Why would you disable comments on every post?! / Questions 1701-1750 of 5000 / My Best Excuse

I finished updating my BootyBase with various bits of information tonight. :D

Also, why would you keep a journal with comments disabled for EVERY SINGLE POST? There's this one dude on my friendsfriends page (courtesy of Erin M.) whose every entry (that I've seen) has comments disabled. I can understand vents that the writer doesn't want comments on, but his latest entry concerns a bunch of anti-depressants that he'd apparently like for Christmas. If you REALLY want a blog with comments disabled, you might as well make the thing private to start with! Blergh.

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

The only complete copy... you'll have to go around erasing answers.

1701. Will tomorrow be just like today? Probably... only I intend to spend it writing Christmas cards. We'll see if I get that done...

1702. How would you react if a stranger pinched your bottom? I'd smite them with my fireballs, haha. Seriously though, I'd be very confused and angry.

1703. When was the last time you went on a date? Me, date? Hahaha, yeah right!

1704. Have you ever ridden a horse? Yup, when I was a kid in Langley.

1706. What is almost over? This song that I'm listening to. (Dee Dee King's German Kid)

1707. What should you be doing that you are putting off? Writing Christmas cards.

1708. Can you taste the rainbow? No...

1709. What the hell IS The Rock cookin'? I have absolutely NO idea.

1710. Would you rather be famous or notorious? Notorious.

1711. Would you rather have a diamond necklace or a blueberry farm? A diamond necklace... I think that a blueberry farm would be pointless.

1712. Could you take first place in a beauty contest? Probably not.

1713. Who is the biggest hypocrite you know, and why? Shannon because she always goes back on her word, haha.

1714. Is there a difference between being opinionated and being bitchy? Yeah... being opinionated is just a subset of being bitchy.

Which are you? Neither, I'd hope!

Or are you neither? Neither, haha.

1715. Do you think it is possible to have a polygamous relationship, and truly love all partners equally? Like 3 or 4 involved? NEVER!!!!

1716. What sound is annoying you right now? Nothing.

1717. Imagine you're taking a vacation with 4 people. Who are they? I want to take people I'd get along with for the most part. So let's see... Sam, Eric M., Andrea, and Jen.

1718. The five of you travel by plane. Suddenly, your plane crashes down over snowy mountains. The pilot, the air crew, and all the other passengers die. The only way for you to survive is for one of you to get eaten by the others. Who will it be? Not Andrea, since Chuck would be devastated. I guess the remaining three of us would have to draw straws or something... not Sam, since he's musical. Not Eric M., since he'd be missed. Not Jen, since she's pretty cool and likes scruffy guys. So I guess it would be me... nobody would miss me, as I was trying to tell Randal some time ago.

1719. Why is it then when someone is an anorexic and someone else finds out, they are rushed to the hospital.. BUT when someone is obese (another life-threatening eating disorder), they are NOT rushed to the hospital? No idea... maybe because anorexia is more noticeable.

1720. What is Gargamel (of the Smurfs)'s religion? Does he even HAVE one?! o_O

1721. Why do people do things that they know are bad for them, such as smoking and not getting enough exercise? Because people have no self-control.

1722. How many times have you gotten an A in a class? Probably not very many.

1723. What food group do you eat the most of (bread and pasta, meats and eggs and fish, fruits and vegetables, milk and cheese, sugar and butter)? Probably bread and pasta.

1724. Who is so adorable that you'd like to keep them as a pet? Fidela!

1725. If you had to spend a half hour locked in a dark closet with someone from school that you don't hang out with after school, who would you want it to be? Based on past experience, Jamie Reynolds.

What if it was someone from your job that you don't see outside work? Again based on past experience, Chris Noble.

1726. Truth or dare? DARE.

truth: How often do you masturbate a week?

dare: I dare you to tell us who you think about when you're masturbating. I don't masturbate, therefore I cannot think about anyone as I do so.

for the less bold

truth: At what age did you or do you plan to lose your virginity?

dare: I dare you to answer the truth question. I don't have a certain age where I plan to lose it, because I will when I fall in love and the time is right.

1727. Do you know that in the USA, taxes are so hard that we work for a full third of the year for free (for the government)? Knew that.

1728. If taxes pay for buses, then why is there an additional bus fare? Because the bus driver needs money too, not just the bus.

1729. Should people be allowed to use cell phones in their car? Yeah, but hands-free models only.

1730. I have a tiny grey tiger-striped 8 week old kitten. Will you rescue him and love him? Rescue him? What are you DOING to him?! But sure, if I could...

1731. Have you ever seen a human baby born? Nope.

An animal baby? Nope.

1732. Did you see that miracle of life video? Probably.

How'd it make you feel about sex? There's a lot more to it than just the physical part.

How'd it make you feel about having a baby? Made me look on it as a messy procedure.

1735. What are you counting the days until? Saturday, when Jon gets home.

1736. What is the greatest temptation for you? Food.

How do you resist it? I wish I could...

1737. What are you waiting for? Someone to give me a zillion dollars, haha.

1738. Who is your knight (or lady) in shining armor? Nobody.

1739. If you were walking and someone behind you yelled, "HEY YOU" ... would you turn around? Not until they repeated themselves.

1740. Do loud noises make you tense? Sometimes.

1741. OMG!! Is that your epidermis showing??? Of course it's showing, you idiot. If it wasn't, I'd be very disturbed. :P

1742. Would you rather have people agree with you all the time, or tell you the honest truth about what they think? Honest truth.

1743. If, in a contest, you had to spend one million dollars in one day and you couldn't keep anything you bought to win a million of your own, could you do it? Sure.

1744. Are you all heart? Maybe a good majority of it, but not all...

1745. Are you mad? Not currently.

1746. Will you / have you gone to your high school reunion? Probably not.

1747. What do you think of your yearbook pic? Yuck.

Take this quiz at

It might help if you learned how to spell. :P

No more periods? / The power of the vent / David K. getting my Christmas card

No more periods?! Very interesting read... :D

After venting about something, I now feel better. That's what it was designed to do. :P

David K. (korczyk) got my Christmas card today... whee! He says it means a lot to him, especially since he's never gotten a Christmas card from someone he's never met. (and he might just send me one back, haha) That's good then! :D

The only complete copy... you'll have to go around erasing answers.
