The Canucks won 4-3 in OT against Calgary!

The Canucks played the Flames tonight: it's always a rivalry between Vancouver and Calgary! This was a weird game: both teams had goals disallowed because of players in the crease (Vancouver), or hooking the opponent (Calgary). The funny thing is that 20 seconds after Vancouver had their goal disallowed because Todd Bertuzzi was in the net on Sami Salo's goal, the exact same play was repeated with Todd a few inches higher. Speaking of Todd Bertuzzi, he was injured in the third, but came back to test it. Anson Carter scored in the third to come within a goal, and he could finish the play nicely. The Canucks have this bad habit of taking BAD penalties late in the third period, as has happened in the last dozen or so games!

Then a Flame tripped up Bertuzzi late in the third, and they had a two-man advantage with 1:18 left in the game. They called a time-out to deal with this situation. Then Auld headed for the bench for the sixth attacker, so that would be a 6-on-3... might as well maximize the potential, eh? Salo scored his second of the game with this three-man advantage, too! They started overtime with a little bit of a power play, too. Shortly after that expired, Jordan Leopold got a penalty for tripping, so Vancouver went right back on the power play. Then after Kiprusoff robbed Salo a couple of times, Morrison scored from behind the net! :D

I'd bug Darren about this, but he went offline right afterwards... maybe later. But our first win against Calgary this season is definitely GREAT! Alex Auld will certainly celebrate his 25th birthday in style tonight! The three stars were Sami Salo (two goals and three points with a chance for the hat trick), Jarome Iginla (had the 3-1 goal which looked to ice it for the Canucks), and Anson Carter. Brendan Morrison didn't factor into the selection, but that goal was his eighth regular-season OT goal... the last time Vancouver and Calgary were in overtime, I remember the LONG TIME it took to decide the game! Man, that Stanley Cup run was memorable... and Morrison was the deciding factor in that game, too!

My sleep schedule is screwed up... I've got to get it back to normal, somehow. o_O

I still love this away message: I'm currently building a time machine (or a thermonuclear device, you decide) out of nothing but matchheads, plywood, and rubber bands.. leave a message, and I might get back to you when I'm done! (and then there's also the "I am not here... I am elsewhere..." construct!)

Ah, old discussions and memories... :D

Your Inner Blood Type is Type O

You are outgoing, gregarious, and well loved.
And it's a good thing you're super charming...
Because you also tend to be a bit flaky!
Your confidence gets you far, and you always speak your mind.

Finished busywork! / Questions 2951-3000 of 5000 / Sexy stuff

I finally finished my project at 12:10 AM... I love my journal upkeep. Corey would ask what the point was if nobody ever saw it but me (if he's not point-blank IGNORING me like he's mostly been the last couple of days =/ ), but at least I know I've done something to make my journal the best it can be. :D

Polls, busywork, and Eric M.

I'm busy doing poll work elsewhere on the computer, but I did take a reading break earlier. When I got back, I found that Eric M. had MSN'ed me about Fellowship. Aiya... I'll explain to him later, and hopefully I won't sound too weird. Projects and busywork, begone! :P

I'm also listening to Mark Knofler. This Mark Knofler is NOT the Dire Straits lead singer. For one thing, the Dire Straits lead singer's last name is spelled differently. (his is Knopfler) Secondly, this is a prank call artist. Here's the Phone Losers website if you don't believe me.

the president / leader of your country: No.

2923. What message does ___ send when given as a birthday present?

gift certificate: "Uh... here's something that I thought you could use, even if you don't like it."

2937. How can a girl get a guy-she-is-dating's mom to like her better? Agree with her, be yourself (unless your true self pisses her off), do things with her that she likes...

Gold medals, NHL wins, dinner, Jen, Nathan, Seattle, quizzes

Just went out for dinner with some family friends... it was nice, and I got to bug my brother about a lot of inside-jokey stuff. We had ginger with egg (88¢ dessert?!), beef, lamb, broccoli, carrots, tea, crab, Funny Taste Chicken (that was how it was named on the menu!), soup, spareribs, fish, and other stuff. He called Jen and Nathan to see what they were doing: maybe a movie at Nathan's later, who knows? Jon's supposed to contact me over MSN... he had lunch with Nathan and Danielle... and spent the afternoon with Nathan already, heh) Apparently, my parents are going to Seattle tomorrow with Jon: I'm not going because I could use the downtime. Besides, there's the Yaletown Brewery thing on Sunday: it's looking like it'll be in the afternoon instead of at night. Just so long as nobody's car breaks down on the way there like last year, it'll be all good. The Canucks actually won another hockey game, this time by a 3-2 score against the Chicago Blackhawks. Canada also has a gold medal in the world juniors, since that team won 5-0 against Russia earlier! :D

Your Love Element Is Earth

In love, you have consistency and integrity.
For you, love is all about staying grounded and centered.

You attract others with your zest for life and experiences.
Your flirting style is defined by setting the scene, creating a unique moment in time.

Steady progress and stability are the cornerstones of your love life.
You may take things too slowly, but you never put your heart at risk.

You connect best with: Fire

Avoid: Wood

You and another Earth element: need each other too much to build a good foundation

Willy Wonka
You scored 48% villainy, 61% crazy, and 19% love or lust!

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Well, you are a nutter who is less moral. It is not that you and Willy are evil... you just think that things are acceptable that are usually not. (try showing a little concern if someone is turning into a giant blueberry and may die). You are not that concerned with love, and why would you be if you have your Oompa Loompas to keep you company? You do look out for their welfare after all (even though it is for your own gain, and you pay them in cocoa beans). Either way, I am sure that people find you fun... in moderation. (not terribly interesting side note: Depp was allergic to chocolate when he was young).
Don't forget to rate my test, please.

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
free online datingfree online dating
You scored higher than 79% on villainy

You scored higher than 75% on crazy

Radiohead, JUST, Questions 2851-2900 of 5000

New icon... Radiohead's Just is a GREAT song! Loved this icon since I saw it originally, and had to steal it when I saw it just now.. heh heh. ;)

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.

2851. What celebrity has the sexiest voice of:

females? Someone Australian or English.

males? Someone Australian or English.

2852. You are having a party and can invite three celebrities of your choice. They WILL come. Who do you invite? Pavel Bure, Bono, and Brad Pitt. (hey, it's a total coincidence that U2 is playing on the radio right now!)

2853. Where did you come from? I split my time between the Hydro Flame Planet and Planet Hamster.

Where are you now? Richmond... yay!

Where are you going? On the crazy train.

2854. What would you imagine the Playboy mansion is like? Orgies everywhere.

2855. Do you blow your nose loudly in public? I try not to!

2856. Do you help others every day? I try to!

2857. Bono or Chris Tucker? Original answer: "Who?" *headdesk* Bono.

2858. Is it lonely being alone in your head? Not completely.

2859. What is the worst poverty you have ever seen? Chicago is pretty bad.

2860. Has anyone ever told you that more than 2 billion people live on less than two dollars a day? Yeah.

What do you think of that? That's terrible!

2861. Add a sentence to the story:

Once upon a time there was a man named Arthur and he was brushing his teeth. He suddenly saw a bright rainbow outside. So he went out the back door to take a look, and he found an elf who said:

"All this drinking has gone to me head... is it really noon?!"

2862. Be honest.. do you generally listen or wait for your turn to talk? Wait, usually.

2863. How many fingers do you type with? 8.

2864. What does "you think you know, but you have no idea" mean? Where did it come from as a common phrase? It means you wouldn't understand what the speaker's going through because you haven't been through their exact experiences. I think it's a call for pity. :P

2865. Do you think it's important to give up liberties in order to protect freedom? Depends.

2866. Do you think George Bush was elected in a legal way? Who knows.

2867. Imagine you were dying of a disease... you only had a certain amount of time left with your mate, parents or children. What would you leave behind for them to remember you by? Pictures, journals, notes, things like that...

How would you feel if there were drugs to help you live, only you couldn't afford them? I would be so annoyed and angry!

How would you feel if people were trying to sell you the drugs at a lower cost, but the drug companies made sure they couldn't because that would cut their profits? Same.

This scenario is going on Right Now. The country is Africa. The disease is AIDS. The drug is AZP (and others). The people are Africans who are very poor and have AIDS. The large drug corporations won't sell the drugs at a price they can afford, or allow smaller companies to either. Is this acceptable? No.

What are you going to do about it? No clue. This sounds more like a cause my brother should take up, haha.

2868. Would you ever BUY a new ring for your cell phone that plays a couple of notes of your favorite song? No, that's stupid.

2869. What has completely moved you? ... nothing recently...

2870. If, for your next birthday you had a novelty kids birthday party, what games would you play at it? I have no idea what the kiddy games are nowadays, so I wouldn't know.

Hockey, Ester-C as estrogen, and books

The Canucks lost 3-1 tonight to Dallas: Morrison scored a power play goal in the second period against his former college teammate Marty Turco, even though the team was outshot. Alex Auld had several good saves, but then Dallas had two unassisted goals because of the poor defensive coverage... cross-ice passes to the wrong person?! Eeeep. Now they have one win in their last nine games, and four wins out of their last 15 road games... and they're 0-4 in the second game of back-to-back games, which they will be playing in Chicago tomorrow afternoon!

Half the seats in the American Airlines Center were empty because there was some football game (the Rose Bowl?) going on, and the people who WERE there were probably focused on the score there. Tomorrow's scheduling is bizarre: there's THE Canada-Russia juniors gold medal game at 4, and the Canucks-Blackhawks game at 5:30. Ah well...

HAHAHA, I just heard a commercial for Ester-C on the radio. That reminds me of the time last week or so when Nathan (or Eric?) thought they'd said "Estrogen." HAHAHA.

Fewer books = less stuff to move. I've decimated my collection by 20 just tonight. :P (and now Corey's telling me that I should replace that stuff with bad romance novels... yeah right! :P)

Power outages, WATER

Thank goodness I'm not affected by the power outage currently going on... and I wish I could see Water with the guys, but I guess that's not going to happen! Ah well, I love my downtime... and tortilla con queso soup. :D

Finally seeing Dennis again after two years / Questions 2801-2850 of 5000 / Social Dysfunction

Once again, I've been away for longer than I anticipated.. Jon and his "social butterfly" tendencies strike again, heh. He buzzed me at about 2:30 this afternoon to tell me that the lards (parents) were seeing The Chronicles of Narnia at 4... I decided to go, and caught some flack for showing up later than expected at the townhouse. Hey, I was at the intersection at 3:30... and then spent too long deciding what to buy at the 7-11, but that's not the point. I was THERE. :P

The movie was all right.. it was a bit slow in the first bit, but it picked up speed later on. All the battle sequences reminded me of LOTR, heh. Afterwards, my parents said I could go home with them and have dinner before they dropped me off at my place... or I could go with Jon to Memphis Blues BBQ House and meet Phil and Dennis, if he let me. Memphis Blues was an overwhelming factor, as was seeing Dennis: he went off to Fredericton a couple years ago to do his Masters Degree, and I haven't seen him in at least a couple of years. After spending some time at a coffee shop and the liquor store (chocolate stout for Jeremy?!), we met the guys for eats at the Commercial Drive location instead of the Granville / Broadway one.

Dinner was cool: we had the Memphis Feast (half the size of the Elvis Platter) and talked about various topics. Somalia, Kenya, guns, AK-47s, technicals, protection, government, UK, Prague, Vienna (Dennis was there and found it boring-ish), poverty / patronage of musicians, musicology, Mozart, Hadyn, Toronto, books, record labels, iPods, church, Grace, Megan, parents, liquor, beer, etc. It was pretty cool, heh. After dinner, Jon said that he wanted to hang out with his Toronto friends, but that we'd have to wait an hour or so... fine with me, as if I had a choice. Dennis, Jon, and I went to Turks coffee shop: Den paid for our caffeine! (the combination of caffeine and alcohol wasn't good for my brother, heh) We discussed books, philosophy, how Nathan was doing six months after the death of his mom (crisis / anger period in September and October), having friends in the places you travel so you can stay at their houses for free (helps with the cost), Den's sister Jasmine's wedding, all-out banquets, Italy, staying single, plans, seeing / dating people, Africa, etc.

A while later, Jon and I went to someone's apartment after dropping Dennis off at the Skytrain station. We were GOING to go out somewhere, but they were all tired after a Whistler ski trip.. so we all just watched Sportsnet and hung out for two hours more. (Amy fixed my caught jacket zipper!) One of the reporters was actually a guy I knew back in junior high.. there can't be THAT many guys in Vancouver running around with the name Ian Mendes, right? ;) That took me right back to the days in Palmer with him, Troy Sorel, and Dave Powell... good times. They were all into hockey then, too.. Dave used to tease me about not liking the Calgary Flames like he did, haha. :D

Matt Mark, Amy, Jonathan, and Hang Kit all want to go for a Daimasu sushi lunch tomorrow before their flight to Toronto at 3:45... of course Jon's up for it, even if he's seeing Water at the Fifth Avenue cinema at 9 with Jeremy and Nathan. I might be up for it as well, but probably not. We'll see what happens, haha. I know that Jon's going on an overnight trip with the parents on Friday-Saturday, and that he has Yaletown Brewery plans on Sunday... we'll see if I go to the brewery, heh. Now Corey's teasing me about beer, and also about drinking water in shots... aiya. :P

Hey, Andrea sent me an email about her new email / cell phone number. I'll get right on that... as well as Helen, Lesley, Lily, Sophia, and Winnie's Evite to Stella's baby shower at Helen's on Jan. 22 from 3-5. (I'll RSVP now so I don't forget) At least it's on a Sunday, so Awana doesn't need to conflict with that... phew!

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.

2801. The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind. But what was the question? "What happens when the wind blows?"

2802. Who is the newest person you've met? Amy, Matt Mark, Jonathan C., and Hang Kit tie for that honor.

2803. Buttons or Knobs? Buttons.

2806. If you were going to write a short note to yourself and then put it away and read it in ten years, what would it say? "I hope you've found somebody by now!"

2807. When someone does something that is wrong, do you believe that they know in their hearts that they are wrong... but they push it down into their subconscious, and rationalize away their guilt? Yeah, since I do that ALL the time.

When have you done this (if you say "never," then you are doing it right now)? Many times in the past.

2808. How can a person have sex with someone they don't love? They're immoral, or have sexual desires that can't be fulfilled in other ways.

Have YOU ever? No!

yellow lectures: Lectures which are fearful.

2813. A girl and her boyfriend are hanging out. It is obvious they are together. Another guy schmoozes between them and starts hitting on the girl. The boyfriend tells this guy to back off. The guy just keeps bothering the girl. Do you think the boyfriend would be justified in hitting this intrusive guy? Yes, since he's already tried resolving it by non-violent means.

A girl and her boyfriend are hanging out. It is obvious they are together. Another GIRL (lesbian) schmoozes between them and starts hitting on the first girl. The boyfriend tells this girl to back off. The girl just keeps bothering the first girl. Do you think the boyfriend would be justified in hitting this intrusive girl? Maybe.

If you answered yes to one situation and no to the other one, why the double standard?

2830. To be or not to be. That is the question. What is the answer? To be.

2831. Does beauty exist as a definable standard, or is beauty in the eyes of the beholder? Original answer: "I'm cold." What does THAT have to do with anything?! (this Katie girl is an IDIOT!) My answer: It's in the eyes of the beholder.

Note to self: LJ friends stranded on an island / LJ friends getting totally wasted / LJ friends RAWR! / LJ friends' obsessions / LJ Dream / what my LJ friends think of me / LJ friends in 10 years / LJ Mythological Creature blogquizzes. (by Uriah, Leila, Sammy, Cerl, Kasi)

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

2763. What attracts you about the opposite sex (or same sex, or both sexes)? Not sure... society dictates that I'm straight, haha.

2788. The people in power step all over the average citizen, trying to secure all the power and money for themselves and leave us with no rights and under their control.

2789. The Free State Project is a plan in which 20,000 or more liberty-oriented people will move to a single state of the U.S. to secure a free society there. They will accomplish this by first reforming state law, opting out of federal mandates, and finally negotiating directly with the federal government for appropriate political autonomy. They want to be a community of freedom-loving individuals and families, and want to create a shining example of liberty for the rest of the nation and the world. What's your opinion? Could this work? Why or why not? I don't know... seems too idealistic for me, but maybe...

paintball? No.

lazer tag? Yeah.

Which is better? Not sure.

2799. In what ways are you lucky? I have friends and family, a social life sometimes, control over my life, etc.

2800. If Jesse Jackson wants reparations to be given to black people because he thinks that black people don't have equal opportunities in this country, then why does he drive a Jaguar? To be flashy and show off his bling / extra money.

What musical instrument do you play?

Playing the last-place St. Louis Blues, Lost Words, Snopes New Years Superstitions, and Quizzes

602602 = repeating numbers = coolness. ;)

Summary of game: Ed Jovanovski didn't dress since he's injured, and the team lost Sami Salo after only two shifts to a facial injury (cut to the face). Nolan Baumgartner scored an apparent goal in the first period, but it was disallowed because our rookie Alex Burrows (playing his very first NHL game, and was the best player with 7 minutes of ice time) was in the goalie crease on top of Curtis Sanford. Then we took a penalty for cross-checking, and Doug Weight scored eight seconds later on their power play. Anson Carter answered, but then Scott Young and Mike Sillinger scored to make it 3-1 for the Blues. (three goals on 10 shots!) Then Mike Sillinger scored into an empty net with 1:39 left in the game for the Blues' fifth win on home ice this season... final score was 4-1. The second Sillinger goal was the first empty-net goal scored against the Canucks since some 1990s playoff run against Calgary.

I wonder when this losing / bleeding will stop.. the Canucks have lost seven of our last eight, and they're 7-10-2 on the road. o_O They next play the Dallas Stars and Chicago back-to-back on Wednesday and Thursday. It's certainly problematic if you lose to the worst team in the league... never mind losing to a divisional rival / opponent like they did on New Year's Eve in Minnesota! (puck-watching, indeed...) The Canucks didn't even outshoot the Blues in this game! Three stars were Sanford, Weight, Jackman (in building) / Weight, Sillinger, and Baumgartner (according to the telecast). I guess any time you're -20 for the year and get a +3 rating on the night like Sillinger, you deserve a star.

Caught up on blogs too: Dave's misadventures at the sushi place, Spoz's 2005 lists, Dawn's ranting over parents, and Vivian's France reflections... we've got to go eat somewhere when she gets back, haha!

A site full of lost words... very cool!

Snopes New Years Superstitions... who can keep track of all that?!

The People's Front
You scored 95 Stubborn, 65 Crazy, 36 Aggressive, and 41 Evil!

Apperance: Life of Brian

The People's Front of Judea.

High Light:

Inalienable Rights.

(A huge Roman amphitheatre, sparsely attended. REG, FRANCIS, STAN, and JUDITH are seated in the stands. They speak conspiratorially.)

Judith: Any Anti-Imperialist group like ours must *reflect* such a divergence of interests within its power-base.

Reg: Agreed. (General nodding.) Francis?

Francis: I think Judith's point of view is valid here, Reg, provided the Movement never forgets that it is the inalienable right of every man --

Stan: Or woman.

Francis: Or woman... to rid himself --

Stan: Or herself.

Reg: Or herself. Agreed. Thank you, brother.

Stan: Or sister.

Francis: Thank you, brother. Or sister. Where was I?

Reg: I thought you'd finished.

Francis: Oh, did I? Right.

Reg: Furthermore, it is the birthright of every man...

Stan: Or woman.

Reg: Why don't you shut up about women, Stan. You're putting us off.

Stan: Women have a perfect right to play a part in our movement, Reg.

Francis: Why are you always on about women, Stan?

Stan: (pause) I want to be one.

(pregnant pause)

Reg: What?

Stan: I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me Loretta.

Reg: What!?

Stan: It's my right as a man.

Judith: Why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?

Stan: I want to have babies.

Reg: You want to have babies?!?!?!

Stan: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.

Reg: But you can't have babies.

Stan: Don't you oppress me.

Reg: I'm not oppressing you, Stan -- you haven't got a womb. Where's the fetus going to gestate? You going to keep it in a box?
(Stan starts crying.)

Judith: Here! I've got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can't actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody's fault, not even the Romans', but that he can have the *right* to have babies.
Francis: Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother. Sister, sorry.

Reg: (pissed) What's the *point*?

Francis: What?

Reg: What's the point of fighting for his right to have babies, when he can't have babies?

Francis: It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression.

Reg: It's symbolic of his struggle against reality.

Rowhouse 'Hood
You scored 24 out of 40 on urban-rural, and 24 out of 40 land intensity.
People know you as: The Bohemian Gentrifier

Quote: "That crack house just needed a little paint."

Your score indicates that you are a city-dweller of the old-school. You like a dense, finely grained neighborhood with restaurants, churches, and brothels all on the same block. Although you've never spoken to him personally, you know that guy Eddie down the street is a pimp... and you're sure to tell your lame suburban friends about him at every opportunity, just to freak them out.

The bad news is that as more and more people like you move into your neighborhood, it gradually becomes less cool and more expensive. Enjoy things while you can... because in 5 years, you're going to have to move to the next 'hood uptown.

Examples of places you should live: Baltimore, Philadelphia

Smart Paladin
51% Combativeness, 26% Sneakiness, 52% Intellect, 58% Spirituality
Valorous! Noble! Or possibly just a self-righteous jerk (but with the brains to keep you alive!) ... You are a Smart Paladin!

Paladins are holy warriors. They are valorous defenders of the light. Unfortunately, most of them are so ardent in their defense, they tend to meet sticky ends faster than you can say "rampaging red dragon." Many people look up to Paladins, while others just consider them stuck up, overbearing, or self-righteous.

Fortunately for you, unlike most Paladins, you're pretty smart. Which means that you're more likely to fall into the "admired" category, rather than the "obnoxious" or "dead" categories.

Much like the crusades, you manage to combine violence and religion... though unlike the crusades, you add a healthy dose of intelligence. You may be a staunch defender of the faith, a valorous champion of the weak, or the stuff that jihads are made of. Whichever one you are, just be happy that you've got the smarts to back it up and make it work.

An Erudite Wordsmith
You scored 97% novice, 84% intermediate, and 76% advanced!
Wow, it appears that we have come across a master in the art of language. You must be an English major - or at the very least an avid reader. Good for you! For, as James Joyce once wrote, literature is "the highest and most spiritual art." Thus, you are very fortunate and blessed to have been given such great talent for the ins and outs of linguistics. I am sure that we can expect some great things from you in the future. Congratulations :)
