Ok, I had to share this because it came out sooooooo cute.

One of the girls I work with had a baby back in April, so since she's now back to work, I had to do something for her, so this is the outcome.

I hate IKEA!!!
Current mood:cranky
Ok, as we all know my parents house was flooded last April, here's a little reminder if you don't remember.
But now the house is finally finished, but now comes the task of decorating and painting and all of the that kind of stuff.
But now my weekend was spent at my favorite store IKEA, which now is something that I'm begining to hate.
Since Saturday, I've been in that damn store a total of 9 hours, but after planning and picking and carring in 400 lbs of furniture, its all done.
Now the only thing I have to do is get the fun job of putting it all together...YAY.
Sorry all just needed to vent a little bit.

Ok, so Monday night was the Soundtigers annual "fun cruise" aka the Port Jeff Ferry this year was a little differnt from past years because we had a little live entertainment provided by the team, well one of the members of the team that is.
This year Jamie Fraser deceided that he wanted to pick up a guitar of one of the band members and jam a little, so he did.
Words can’t really describe it, but thankfully I was there with my trusty camera and captured it all on video. So check it out and let me know what you think,

Untill it's gone.
That would be the computer. I spent the day at work with out my computer, we had a central site outage and the computers were dead from 1pm untill 430pm.
It really actually sucked, I had a ton of work to do and couldn't do any of it. But one good thing, the internet still worked, so that was a plus.
Now the downfall is gonna be tomorrow, when all hell breaks out because nobody could do anything today.
So wish me luck tomorrow...UGGGHHH!!!

Cheaters never win!!!!
Current mood:bouncy
Ok, so it's true what does the perfect season mean if you can' win the big game.
I guess they just wanted everyone to think that the Pat's could do it. I know I've been saying all along cheaters never win, but this time it actually meant something.
I know I'm not Giants fan, and No I didn't jump on a bad wagon I was just rooting against the team that cheated their way into the superbowl.
Now I know it's gonna be a long off season and with hope the Miami Dolphins will do next year what the New York Giant's were able to do tonight!!

Fried Ice Cream
Current mood:satisfied
Ok, so just had to share this one, tonight for dinner, I went out with Lisa to this new little Mexican restaurant that just opened in Seymour. It's called Hot Tamale's.
We had Nachos....which BTW they were yummy, and I had a combo of Taco's and Enchilada's again yummy.....but the real treat....DESSERT
We were all set with dinner full and ready to go home.
We then saw across the restaurant Flames...and typically one shouldn't see flames when you're eating....behind the person sitting next to you.
So after a few questions we found out it was Fried Ice Cream....which I have't had in forever, so we had to try and it was yummy.
The guy came over and set up infront of us and we poured in the Bacardi to the ice cream and the flames started, then he put a little honey on top and then a little cinnamon on top, and wow it smelled soooooo goood, and it sparkled a little bit so that was kinda fun, and finally to put out the flames, he covered it with whipped cream.
All in all it was yummy and fun, and can't wait to do it again.

Bulletin/Blog...Whatever..I liked and had to post...Every Guy
To every guy who said "Sex CAN wait."
To every guy that's said, "You're beautiful"
To every guy that's never too busy to drive across town to see her.
To every guy that gives her flowers and a card when she is sick or down.
To every guy who has given her flowers just because that's how he rolls.
To every guy that said he would die for her.
To every guy that really would.
To every guy that did what she wanted to do.
To every guy that cried in front of her.
To every guy that she cried in front of.
To every guy that holds hands with her.
To every guy that kisses her with meaning.
To every guy that hugs her when she is sad.
To every guy that hugs her for no reason at all.
To every guy who would give their jacket up for her.
To every guy that calls to make sure she got home safe.
To every guy that would sit and wait for her for hours just to see her for ten minutes.
To every guy that would give his seat up.
To every guy that just wants to cuddle.
To every guy that reassured her that she was beautiful no matter what.
To every guy that told his secrets to her.
To every guy that tried to show how much he cared through every word and every breath.
To every guy that thought maybe this could be the one.
To every guy that believed in her dreams.
To every guy that would have done anything so she could achieve them.
To every guy that never laughed at her when she told him her dreams.
To every guy that walked her to her car and opened the door.
To every guy that gave her his heart.
To every guy who prays that she is happy...even if you aren't with her.

Not many girls appreciate nice guys anymore (Not many?...try almost all)
And because of this, there are not many left out there...

I guarantee 90% of the men on your page will not repost this cuz they care more about their image OR they ARE nice guys and feel it's no longer worth trying anymore.

if you're a nice guy report this with:
"This is how every girl should be treated..."

If you're a girl that thinks every guy should treat a girl this way, then repost this with:
"To every guy..."

I am a travel agent.....
Current mood:bouncy
I am a travel agent....
I have advance degrees in accounting, public relations,
marketing, business administration, computer science, civil engineering,
and Swahili.

I am a travel agent....
Of course I remember the reservation you booked six
years ago, even though you don't have a confirmation number
and you think it was made under a last name that begins with a T.

I am a travel agent....
It's no problem for me to give you seven connecting
non-smoking poolside suites with 2 king beds and 4
rollaways in each, and yes, it is my fault that the hotel does
not have a helicopter landing pad.

I am a travel agent....
I speak all languages and have visited every destination.

I am a travel agent....
It's obvious to me when you book your reservation for Friday,
you really mean Saturday.

I am a travel agent....
My company has entrusted me with financial information,
and yet I can't tell you why your hotel bill for March 1989
had a 50 cent phone call because, of course, you shouldn't
have to pay for calls.

I am a travel agent....
I understand that Joe Blow Ltd. is a vast empire and will make or
break my agency.

I am a travel agent....
Yes, I am lying when I say there are no seats left at the lowest price.

I am a travel agent....
No, it's not a problem for me to quickly construct several more
guest rooms at the hotel you want, and this time I will not
forget the helicopter landing pad!

I am a travel agent....
I am capable of checking fares for three people, taking five
reservations, and answering fifteen calls simultaneously.

I am a travel agent....
I always know where to find the best vegetarian,
kosher, and Mongolian barbecue restaurants.

I am a travel agent....
I know exactly what to do in all cities without spending money.

I am a travel agent....
I take responsibility for airline food, traffic jams, rental car
flat tires, weather, hotel locations, supplier errors and the
national economy.

I am a travel agent....
Of course I can fit you into the hotel at the special
corporate rate because you are affiliated with the
Blackburn North Lawn Bowling club.

I am a travel agent...
I am never offended when I spend 10 hours researching a
12 day European itinerary only to hear you say you "booked it
yourself over the internet and saved $30.00 !!" I also never
gloat when you call back to say the rate was sold out or that
you are stuck in the middle of nowhere since they cancelled your
flight and you cannot "call" your internet provider to be
reprotected on another flight.

I am a travel agent...
I love when people walk up to me at parties and out of the blue
expect me to know the latest airline fares from Melbourne to Ibiza
via Byron Bay, the Maldives and Nairobi "off the top of my head".

I am a travel agent...
I love that everyone assumes I get to travel everywhere
for free and when I do get to take advantage of a perk people
act like it is a sin against nature. If you ask me to get you the rate
at my "travel agent discount" I will kill you.

I am a travel agent...
Don't bother telling me any dates or cities since I am
a mind reader and already have the reservation in my crystal
ball before you can tell me.

I smile, empathize, sympathize, console, cajole, up-sell, down-sell,
cross-sell, perform, sing, dance, make coffee and fix the
printer.................. I am your travel agent!!

Hershey....It’s not just for Chocolate anymore....but that works too!!!
Current mood:bouncy
Ok, the 1st road trip of the season, we went to Hersehy, we took a little drive, off to see our favorite little hockey team. And since we were there, we went to Chocolate town. And to take a little Chocolate town ride....Sadly the cows in the ride so say SMOOOOOOOOOTH any more, they now sing and say Chocolate is MOOOOOOtricious!!!

After Chocolate to Hockeytown....Ok, so the outcome of the game wasn't exactly what we wanted they lost....and yes they deserved to lose.

After the 1st period they fell asleep.....and never woke up again. The only bright spot on the team....was the player that I wanted to see, my favorite player, New York Islander Shawn Bates, he was sent down to Bridgeport for a conditioning stint, it was his 1st game that he played since Jan 30, 2007. So it's been almost a year sinces hes actually played in a game, and during that 1st game he scored his very 1st Soundtiger GOAL!!!!

That was a wondeful thing too. I got to see the 1st goal that he scored this season, and it was a pretty one.

Really the main reason we went to Hersey was I wanted to get my Jersey signed, i've waited for 3 years to get his Jersey signed, and now....IT'S FINALLY SIGNED!!!!

He was really nice about it too, so thats a good thing. So my night was complete, the only thing left to do....Drive home from Hershey.

Finally after a quick stop to get something to drink and a not so quick stop for dinner and gas, we got home at 330am....uggghhh!!!

Ok, I knit...and they still didn’t win :-(
Current mood:aggravated
It works with Hockey, it works with Baseball but unfortunatly it dosen't work with Football.
If I knit, they will win!!!
But it seems this year, the Miami Dolphins won't win no matter what I do. The only thing I was able to get out of this was a hat. So the I'm thinking, the only thing that I want to get out of this football season is to be the only team to go 0-16, it's a quest now. I know I shouldn't hope for my team to fail, but hey, it'll be a 1 draft pick. I have to hope for a little bit of good out of a lost season.
Sorry you won't get to see a picture because it's a surprise for someone. But it's still cute.
And if you really want to see it, let me know I'll show you.

3 glasses of champagne, 1/2 of a glenlivit. And a whole lot of water,
I survived the night, I woke up today with out a hangover, I was just a little bit congested, should have stayed away from the guys and the cigars last night.
We had a great evening, it was a beautiful wedding, It was a small intimate affair, probably about 25 people which was nice, you were able to get a chance to talk to everyone, and not just the wedding party, but literally everyone.
We sat, ate, drank, drank, drank, drank, and talked. The reception was at Il Palio in Shelton, it was in a small room upstairs over the restaurant.
The food was awesome, I had Chilean Seabass (yummy) over the top of what they called potato puree (aka mashed potatos) and some veggies.
All in all it was a wonderful evening, one I know I won't forget. Also I wish congratulations to the Bride and Groom, and many many years of happiness.

Today was Sharon and Johan's wedding in New York City, it was at the Swedish Church, on 48th St and 5th Ave.
The wedding was wonderful, the church was very simple just white walls and a beautiful window.
The actual reception is on Saturday night in Shelton and it's a black tie event, so that should be really cool too. I can't wait for that either, and don't worry, I'll tell you all about that one later.

Current mood:nostalgic
Ok, I just had to share this.
I did something today that actually almost made me cry. I'm sure others may feel the same way, so I know I'm not alone.
As most of you know my parent's house was almost destroyed in a flood in April, that was one of the reasons that I deceided to move out, I knew it needed to be fixed and I knew I would need to be out of the house for some time, and this was a good chance to escape.
So in the past week, we've been getting rid of all kinds of things. This is not including all of my things that have now been moved out of the house.
But today....I threw out the last thing out of my room, something that I've had since I was a child.....MY BED!!! I know it sounds kinda corney, but it made me sad. I've grew up in that bed, that bed has a lot of memories and dreams in it (and you can get your minds out of the gutter, not that kind of memories) but still, it holds a place in my heart and mind, and now its gone.
Let me know what you think, let me know if you think I'm crazy (but we did kinda know that one anyway)

But, right now, everything is unpacked and all utilities are working (ok, so I lived without cable for 5 days and when the cable man got here today, they told me...hey you actually have cable, it was already turned on UGGGHHH!!!! I could have at least watched the last baseball game of the season (for us anyway) but thats ok to, it's hockey season, and we won't even mention football season, there are 11 weeks left and if we are lucky the dolphins may actually win 1 or 2 of those games.

The Yankees just didn’t want to give me a win for my Birthday.
Current mood:bouncy
So it was a beautiful day at Yankee Stadium, unfortunatly I didn't get the outcome that I was hoping for.

But then again, when they play on my birthday, I ususally don't. The Yankees played Tampa Bay, but really since they are playing the last place team, that dosen't automatically involve a win for them...ususally it just doesnt even end well for them.

Phil Hughes was looking for his 1st win at Yankee Staduim....but guess what...he's still looking...for some reason....I think when he pitches....the rest of the team just dosen't show up.

All in all it was a great day. I even got my picture taken with Derek Jeter...well sorta.

All I can say is LET'S GO YANKEES!!!! And theres still a lot of baseball left to play....I think they can still do it.

I bought a new car but it was about that time for me to do so...and no that wasn't the really crazy thing, but how many people do you know buy a new car and buy the exact same car that they just got rid of....ummm I did!!
Well there was a couple of good reasons for it. The new car when I drove it off the lot on wednesday night had 1 mile on it...ok now it has just a few more, but thats ok too.
But today it officially feels like my car. I installed the Sirius, which made me happy because I hate terrestial's all about the Sirius!!!

Now my question is for you. Can you tell which is the old and which is the new!!!

Ok, I'm sure that most of you know that I deceided to knit my first pair of socks. This has been an awful experience.....torturous even. But it's all finished and I was able to get it done, and to me that's all that matters.
I just had to post some pictures. Yes awful, and terrible, and the 1st sock was ripped out about a million times or so.
I didn't have 2nd sock syndrome and I now have my very 1st pair of hand knit socks, which I love. I can't wait to make another pair.

Because I didn’t have enough yarn I had to go buy more!!
Current mood:creative

I know I probably shouldn't have bought more yarn, but I did.
I found out about the best sale about 2 months ago and have been waiting patiently for it. I was able to get a really good deal. I save myself over $200.00 by buying it today.
I only had to take an hour drive to East Haddam to go get it. I even got to see some of the sheep that it came from.
I can't wait to start knittin with it. I don't know what I'm going to make, but I'm sure I will figure something out.

Whale Watch.
Current mood:tired
It was a fun weekend, and if you notice, there a some new pix floating around (that may need commenting, hint, hint)

We had a great time, it started early on saturday with a long drive to Massachusetts, then from there we were off to the whale watch, the 1st one we went to was full, but the sent us off to another one, and I'm glad they did, the boat was nice and small and we really got to see alot of whales, not to mention so really pretty views of gloucester harbor on the way out.

After that, we wonderd around a little bit and then back to the hotel for little rest, and then out to dinner....and we wanderd around the hotel taking some pix.
Now on sunday we were suppose to go to the beach, but since I was so sunburned from the day before being on the boat all day,
I figured it would be a good day to go to something else, so we ended up going to Salem.

We wandered around town for a couple of hours and visited a few local little attractions, and again we had a lot of fun. Hope everyone likes the picutres and I can't wait to go again soon.

Three things that knitters would like others to understand.
Current mood:creative
3 Things that Knitters would like others to understand.
1. We can knit and listen at the same time. Just because I'm knitting dosen't mean that you don't have my attention, I'm multi-tasking!!
2. The best you can buy me is YARN!! Do not think that because I have a lot of yarn, I don't need more. I have a lot of yarn, because I like it.
3. Even though I'm cursing and gritting my teeth so hard that you could crack diamonds between them, I assure you that I like knitting. I think it's fun and I am relaxing.

It's purse time again.
Current mood:creative
I know, I am a glutton for punishment, but I've joined another purse swap.
This time I really loved the way the bag came out. Someone even asked me today how much I'm selling it for, but I'm not, it's going to a good home in Virginia, I really hope it's new owner loves it as much as I do.
But this makes me think just a bit, maybe I will try to sell some bags and other fun little accessories. (I know a few of you that have some scarves, and other little items)
It really is something that I enjoy doing, I highly doubt that I can make a living off of it, but hey if I make just enough to buy more yarn....I'm i good shape.
I hope everyone likes the picutes and let me know your thoughts.

Because 9 innings of baseball wasn't enough
Ok last night we went out for my best friends birthday and we decieded to go to a baseball game....ok it was minor league independent ball, but hey thats cool too.

We had a great time, and a fun night. But....unfortunatly the game from the night before was rained out and that meant a double header for last nights game.

Ok, that's not so bad 2 games each with 7 innings, but someone deceided they weren't going to score a run and the 1st game went into extra innings....3 of them actually the home team finally won it in the 10th.

The second game wasn't looking too promsing for a while all the way up until the 6th it was a tie score of 2-2.

But after a few hits and a couple of runs they won 6-2. WOOHOO!!!

What happens in Mexico....
Stays in Mexico...or not, since I'm about to tell you all about it.
I had a great time, as you can tell by all the pictures that are floating around (and yes feel free to coment on any of them if you like)
It was a well deserved fun filled week. Ok, so I had to work awww poor me. But I think a total of 8 hours of work over 5 days, really wasn't to bad.
A little 2 hour welcome meeting (aka long drawn out speech) followed by dinner and drinks (ok so that makes up for some of the meeting) the the next day I had to get up at 6am to be at yet anothe meeting this time for 4 hours (again poor me) this time followed by a vendor visit yet another 2 hours of beach time lost.
But after that we were pretty much free, Other than our little activity of Snorkeling and Sailing....and oh yeah....drinking (I see a pattern forming here)
And yet again, after snorkeling, back to the beach, then dinner, then drinks...see I told you a pattern.
Finally it's now time to go home on Friday morning, this is where all hell breaks loose.
I get up nice and bright and early. to be checked out of the hotel and on the bus back to the airport by 9am. Thats ok, I don't mind it, the only thing I wasn't looking forward to was my 4 hour layover in atlanta, but hey I figured that would give me some time to get my bags and clear customs, and immigration.
Actually I did all that stuff in record time, all done in less then 30 minutes...woohoo now only 3 1/2 hours to kill....oh wait no, lets try 5 1/2 hours to kill, my flight was delayed for an hour to take off then another hour waiting on the tarmac because bad weather in Dallas screwed up all the flights into New York and as we all know it's a huge chain reacation.
The only plus was, I paid $75.00 to upgrade to 1st class...which by the way was well worth every penny that I paid for it, especially since we sat on the plane for an hour....and yet the night is still not over.
I finally land in Newark, and after all that, get into my car drive out of the airport to realize that there was a huge backup at the GW Bridge.
So the ride that took me a little over an hour to get to Newark to me 3 1/2 to get home. (Thanks to Dawn I had someone to talk to the entire ride)
All in all it was a great trip. And if anyone wants to see all the pictures just let me know and I'll send them off to you.
And remember....What happens in Mexico....Stays in Mexico!!!

Ok, as we all know, I have more yarn then I know what to do with. So I figured out something to do with some of it.
About 3 weeks ago, I deceided I was going to use some of my stash and make an afghan.....hey 3 weeks ago, we had that little cold front and it was in the 40's at night so it worked.
But all in all I like the way it came out and if it dosen't get used until fall thats ok too.

The boot scoot boogie.....
Current mood:cheerful
Yes, I did the boot scoot boogie, last night well...sorta. I was sitting down on the lawn when I did it, but you get the picture.
Last night was a bit of a surprise....but let me tell you how it began. I was at work yesterday afternoon, and got an email from one of the radio stations that said if you can find a little guitar on their website you would be entered in to win 1 of 10 sets of tickets that they were giving away tickets to go see Alan Jackson and Brooks&Dunn, so I did a litle web surfing and found the guitar and enterd the contest.
About 2 hours later I got a message saying that I won the tickets for the show, they would be at will call just to go get them. I was a little shocked, because I don't usually win things like that but hey it worked, it was a beautiful night out and we sat on the lawn. (and no I dont think i've seen the lawn that full in a long time, and it's been awhile sit i've sat there....kinda got spoiled inside)
All in all it was a great night, a free concert under the stars...ok clouds, but it never rained. And a great couple of acts.
Let's just hope this means my luck is changing. WOOHOO!!!

A great day in sports!!!
Current mood:cheerful
Ok, it was a great day in sports for me. I know I don't get to say that too often, but it was.
The day started out with a few intersting press releases, 1st the Islander's deceided to buy out Alexei Yashin's contract, which means they are trying to make some room in the cap to get a captain (I'm thinking about an Edmonton player, they call Captain Canada)
Then I see a report, that the Miami Dolphins signed a new quaterback, so Culpepper will be gone, yet again, some more good news, any good news that comes out of Miami is a plus. They signed Trent Green, so it looks like they will have a new starter next season, again a good thing, they really can use the help.
All this was coming off a night that the Yankees won a game last night, and yet again tonight they it's 2 in a row, that's winning streak. again a good thing, let's see if we can pick up a couple of games on Boston, and we can make a run of things after the all star break (that seems like the norm for the yankees)
Now a bit of happy and sad news. I have officially watched my last hockey game of the season. And the reason that was a good thing, is because the Ducks won the game, and the Stanley Cup the 1st in franchise history, and only the 2nd set of brothers in NHL history to win the cup, the last one were the Sutter brothers (yes they were Islanders)
So all in all it was a good sports day for me, I can't really comment on how the rest of the day went but hey, I got a few things knit and got home early from work, so that was a good thing.

It's been a Crazy Weekend!!
And it's only half over.
So today was a good day, I was able to make 3 little girls days, Not to mention that I set the women's movement back 20 years but hey thats ok to, sometimes you just need to be a girl.
Dawn and I made 3 scrapbooks for 3 little girls, all full of pictures of their favorite hockey players. Ok so they can drool over each book and have fun with them, but it was great to be able to see the expression on their faces when they looked at them.
It made me happy to be able to do something like that and make their day. And tonight after the party, Dawn, Lori and I all went to a baseball game, ok so it was a the local, minor league, minor league, minor league team. But it was a good game and it was the 1st home win of the seaons, which again was good. We even stayed to watch fireworks at the end of the game and they were....pretty....sparkley!!!
Now tomorrow is going to be just as crazy, it's my parents wedding anniversay, so that should be a fun filled day as well.
Hope everyone else had a nice weekend, and not to crazy

I took a walk on the beach today!!!
Current mood:ecstatic
I'm so happy!!! This means summer is finally almost here!!!
This morning started out cold and crappy, I went out around 11am and it was still 60 degrees (what happend to the 85 degrees they promised us)
It took a couple of hours, but by lunch time the temperature was up to about 80 degrees. ME SO HAPPY!!! I love the warm weather.
So I figured on the way home, I would stop and take a walk on the beach, since it was still warm out and the sun was shining, before it gets cold and crappy again, I wanted to take it while I could get it.

I got "Stoned" and realized how much I loved the Islander's Organization today!!
Current mood:ecstatic
This is a long and drawn out story...but it has a happy ending.
The Director of Sales of the Bridgeport Soundtigers called me on Monday to tell me that the Gameworn Michael Mole jersey that I won at the end of the season auction. was sent to Meigray he told me they have in their contract that the 1st Jersey from every player, Meigray gets.

He said, Howard (the president of the organization) told him that I can either have next season's jersey or I can have another jersey from this year for any other player.

I opted to take next seasons, away jersey. He said, since Moley will be with us next season he will get me the road jersey after they come back from the 1st road trip, and yet again, back to the locker room to get it signed. (OK the boy is really gonna think i'm stalking him then) This sucks, because I wanted to road blue from this season, because it would be his 1st AHL jersey, but now, at this point I'll get the road jersey from next season, not sure that I like it, but hey there's more orange on it, so I guess that's a plus. At this point there's still not much that I can do about it.
But today was the big turn around.
Around 11am Jason fom Meigray called me and left me a message that said, I have you Mole Jersey please call me back, (you have my Mole Jersey...I don't have a Mole Jersey, you do) so I called Jason back and he told me that he was told to sell me the Jersey for the amount of $225.00 he didn't know why, how or what happend, he just knew that's what he had to do. Jason, also informed me that the Jersey was signed (hmmmm I wonder how that happend He signed it for me) What Meigray told me was they were suppose to get Jersey 1 or 2 but there isn't a 1 of 2 there's only a 1 or 1, the Jersey that he wore in that game in the begining of the season in Hershey, was the same one that he wore all season. So that's why Meigray had the Jersey.

I called Shane to thank him for getting the jersey for me and he asked me if Howard had called me. I told him no, and he said it was Howard...yes I said Howard!!! was the one that called Meigray and told them I won the jersey in an auction that they had at the arena. And please lower the price and sell the Jersey to me for the amount that I got in the auction.

So now, my Moley jersey is paid for and will be shipped to me today.

I'm so happy!!!!

And now the other 1/2 of the story, Yes I did "Get Stoned" I went tonight to go see Hinder, they of couse sang Lips of an Angel and Get Stoned and all the rest of their big hits.
It was a great show. They were really good, ok the show was general admisson at Sacred Heard Univeristy, but that's ok too, I can't the opening 2 bands were ok Day's of the New was pretty good, and Operator was good, I've heard better, but I've totally heard worse.
All in all it was a great night, a well needed night out. I really had so much fun.

I'm blind, I'm deaf, I wanna be a ref!!!
Current mood:crushed
Ok, so we went to Game 4 and I've come the the realization that the NHL dosen't want the Islander's to advance to the next round.
Why would they want the 8th seeded team, that skated in on the back of a 3rd string, AHL goalie to beat out the team with the best record in the league.
Truely the Islander's have won 1 game and the Sabres won 1 game, the other two games. were deceided by the league, two bad calls, one goal, one no goal....both in the Sabres favor...imagine that.
Sorry, I just had to vent a little bit about this damn game. But all in all it was a good game, the 1st 2 periods were anyway.
We had a good time, it was a little sad to drive home after the game, but hopefully we'll see game 7, then win it.

Our Seats!!!

I had fun despite the loss and the stupid bad calls by the refs. I haven't had a chance to upload my pictures. Was having major Internet issues tonight and finally just got online after 5+ hours of trying.

Miracles can happen.
I don't know how, I don't know why, but something happend today. We finally were able to get into the house.
Ok, I had to trudge through thigh deep river water (not to mention, I was one sexy bitch in my brown waders ) which by the way, was icy cold, and full of snakes and fish and a few swans.
We walked about 1/4 mile in the water to the house able to get into the house and miraculosly, there was no water in the house. Every thing was saved. Ok, we have no electricity and the poor kitties are ice cold without any heat, but they will survive.
Next the clean up.....that should be fun. I know I can't wait.
Hopefully the insurance will be able to get some money and get the house fixed, everything is shifted, and the 2 doors don't close in the house.
Everything can be fixed, no one was hurt and we all get out ok.
I thank every one for their thoughts and prayers. And I will keep you all posted.

Row, Row, Row, your boat.....
Current mood:hopeful
Gently down the STREET...yes I said street, not stream.
You know it's not going to be a good morning, when the fire department came knocking on the house and screaming on the bull horn...GET OUT!!!
This is the 1st time in my life that I've ever been evacuated by boat, ok it was a big rubber raft, kinda like the ones that you use to go White Water Rafting, it was big and red...and it had pretty lights on it.
All I can say is THIS SUCKS!!! I had about 45 minutes to clean up get dressed, and pick up some things before they took us out on the boat.
Now we wait, hopefully, we can get back in to the house tomorrow or at the latest by wednesday. To clean up, to sort out, to figure out whats going on.
It's an awful feeling, not knowing whats going to happen...whats going to be left, how many things I will have left. Clothing, Shoes, Purses, Yarn, probably all gone.
I'll keep everbody posted.

Soundtiger Hockey Season is over :-(
Current mood:hopeful
It was a sad day in AHL hockey today. Today was the last day of the season for the Bridgeport Soundtigers.
But it was a good game for the team, they got to play spoiler for the Norfolk Admirals today and won the game, and because Bridgeport won, Norfolk lost home ice in the playoffs.
There's always next season....I know a few guys are coming back, so we get to see them next year. And i'm sure theres a few we won't.
But at least Hockey season isn't completly over yet, I know we have at least 4 more games to root for my team!!! I would love to see them make it all the way to the Stanley Cup. We can only hope

2 Days...2 Trips to NYC....Because 1 just wasn't enough.
Current mood:sleepy
Just because I had felt the need to go to New York....I did....twice.
It really just happened that way. I didn't really want to but I did. Tuesday night we went to a concert at the Hard Rock Cafe. (Yes they have a really cool little venue there I don't think it could hold more that 500 people) We saw Hellogoodbye. And they were really cool. I think I like them more now then I did before. They are fun, and wild and a little crazy.
If you look at them, they kinda look like a cross between, Buddy Holly and Devo (with out the little flower pot hats of course) But they are an eclectic mix of Electronic, Bubblegum, Poppy, Rocky Stuff.....I think that's the best way I can describe it. What ever they are it was cool!!
After the show, we went to dinner at....Hard Rock of course, then we came home....but of couse since I was in NYC I had to do a little what a great place...where else in the world can you shop at midnight....Sephora was still I bought some really cool lip gloss.
Today's trip wasn't a pleasure trip but a trip out of necessity. It's not a pleasure trip to take you friend to the Doctor's office to find out when she is going to have surgery...but it was something that I wanted to do for her. I felt like I had to do it for her. Since no one really knows the city that well, I really didn't want her wandering around in the cold and rain looking for something, someplace that's she's not too familiar with.
Hey I may be blonde....but I have a really good sense of direction...tell me once how to get somewhere, and I can find it for the rest of my life.....I'm pretty good like that. And hey it's the city, I know I can't really get lost....I know it too well.
And since we did find out when the surgery is....I'll be back there soon enough. And's just about bed time. I haven't slept much in the last two now seems like a good time to do that.

Last night.
Current mood:amused
Just in case anyone was wondering the concert last night was AWSOME!!!!!
There were two opening acts the 1st one was Finger Eleven (Don't ask I don't know) but they were really good, I liked them alot. The second act was Chevelle, that I have to say they weren't so good, actually they were kinda awful. They were just to loud and you couldn't really understand what they were saying....they really just weren't good.
But on the other hand. Evanescence was great. Amy Lee, really was great. She did a few songs at the piano, and most of them she was just wandering around the stage.
We had "pit" tickets at the you ask they had a pit at the meadows, they took the seats out on the floor, it was really strange to see that, but hey it worked.
We were able to get up nice and close, we were up against the railing on the stage so we were probably less than 3 feet from the stage so that was really cool.
Here's a couple of pix incase you were intersted. I wish I could've got more...or a few better ones, but security was tight they wouldn't let anyone take pictures, if they caught you they would stand up and shine a flashlight on you. 1 shot you were ok, but they actually said they would toss you if they caught you. So really I didn't want to take the chance.

Let's me tell you why I hate the Islander's Organization today.
Current mood:pissed off
Tell me if you think this makes any sense to makes no sense to me.
Why would you start a goalie in a game that starts at 11:00am in Hartford, when you just sent him back to the AHL from the NHL after playing last night on Long Island?
Ok so he didn't start the game on the Island last night, but he played the 3rd period....ok almost the 3rd period. But it was a 730pm game, it was over around 10pm. So what that he either didn't get home to CT from Long Island until close to 1am, then had to be on the bus to Hartford at 7am this morning.
Now tell me would you be upset that he let in 6 goals......NO!!! You really can't fault him for that. He was tired, and not ready to play. If they were goning to call someone up from the ECHL to be a back up, why didn't they just start our backup?
They wanted to put Dubie in because he normally plays better against Hartford.....obviously today this was not the case. I feel bad for him, and there really wasn't anything that he could do. He looked tired, he looked awful. And now he has to live with that terrible lose.
They are fighting for a playoff spot, and this wasn't going to help them losing this game today, because now they have dropped out of position......yet again.
11 games left in the season, and we need to win most of them and Albany to lose most of theirs. Let's go TIGER'S!!!!

Strange day at work today.
Current mood:giddy
Ok, so it was a strange day at work today. They finally did year end reviews, so that was a good thing.
But not only did I get my review.....I was a good girl, I got my raise too, but after all that....I lost my job.
Really I did, my boss came over and told me not to come in tomorrow, but I told her that wouldn't be a problem. I'm off from work anyway.
Her exact words...."You're off the Roster...GET OUT!!!!" No really that's what she told me.
So basically I got a raise and fired on the same day....go figure. It really did take them long enough to do it. I was suppose to start my new job on 28FEB07, so they are only a month behind.
Typical. But hey I get my new hours. I'm now working Mon-Fri 8:30am to 5:00pm so that's very good, I will get home at a decent hour from now on. The only downfall, is I have to leave my house a little before 7am.....eeeewwww!!!
But the good comes with the bad. Let's just see how it works out.

How many people would drive 450 miles to see a good hockey game....I did!!!
Current mood:ecstatic
Ok, I know I have some issues, but I decieded to drive to Binghamton to go see the Soundtigers play tonight.
And all I can say is thank goodness that I did. It was a great game!! The Soundtigers won 6-2. And of those 6 goals 4 of them were in the 1st period. It really was a good game, and well worth the 450 miles and 7 hours in the car for a 2 hour game.
Ok, so I know i;'m a bit crazy for doing it, but hey, I was on vacation this week and didn't have too much to do so this is what I did.

Ok, I got one thing done on vacation.
Current mood:cheerful
I finally finished the purse that I was knitting. And no, it's not one to add to my collection.
This one is actually getting sent away. Far, far away.....well Vancouver anyway. It's going to a Canucks fan (and I'm ok with that) She actually likes Jr's better. So still ok with that too,
This bag is of my own design, (it's a mix of a few different patterns and stiches) so I'd figure I'd share with everyone. I hope everybody likes it. It really came out cool.
Let me know what you think. If only knitting could pay the bills, I'd be in heaven.

Keys to my heart!
Current mood:awake

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to obedience and warmth.

In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.

You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.

Your ideal relationship is traditional. Without saying anything, both of you communicate with your hearts.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You're feeling self centered.

Current mood:cranky
Ok, so I stayed home sick from work today, I have a nasty cold and I can't talk(a fact that I'm sure some of you will be happy with) But right now, I'm am sitting here trying to reinstall everything on my computer.
It died on me. I called gateway and they tried all they could do to get it up and running. But they had no luck, so the only suggestion that they had.
If you use the restore disk, that means you lose every thing you have on the computer. So, i've lost all my pictures and songs and everything else that was on there, yet again, they think it was a power surge that did it....THIS SUCKS!!!
So now yet again, I get to do it all over. WOOHOO!!!
This just makes me happy. Hope everyone else is having a better day than I am.

A day that started bad, ended really well!!!!
Current mood:tired
Ok, so my day started out pretty damn crappy, with a little bit of snow that fell this morning made my drive into work very, very crappy. I knew it was gonna be bad when it took me 20 minutes to go about 2 miles something that usually takes about 5 or so.
So as I continue my wonderful drive from Shelton to Hartford, I get stuck on the Merrit Parkway and yes I now know why they call it a parkway....I was parked. For about 25 minutes or so, just outside of North Haven.
Thank god I had my knitting with me, so I did that, and listeded to so music. I called into work to tell them, I was going to be late. I finally made it to work, and I was only an hour late.So thats a plus.
But here's where the day starts to get a little bit better. I got out of work ontime (even a few minutes early) and drove to Bridgeport. We had tickets to see Nickelback, with Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace. Breaking Benjamin was ok, they weren;t bad, but they weren't awsome either, then for 3 Days Grace, they were I have to say awsome. Great concert band, better live than on CD.
Finally Nickelback. Which I have to say was absolutly great. They put on a good show, they sang for almost 2 hours (which now a day is like unheard of) Chad was great he even told a some jokes. Which I will let you in on, I hope I don't kill it.
But all in all it was a great night. Here a some pictues and a little video that I took...ok it was with the camera phone, so the quality kinda sucks, but hope you like them, I know its a show I wont soon forget.
Ok here's Chad's Joke.
A guy deceides he wants to go fishing and take his wife and his dog along, but unfortunatly his wife dosen't like to fish. So he talks to her and says "Honey why don't we go fishing, we can take the boat out stay on the lake for the day and have some fun" His wife hems and haws a little bit, and finally he says to her, well you if you don't want to go you have 2 choices. 1. Oral or 2. Anal, so she looks at him and says now come on you know which one it's gonna be. So they get down to business, and starts and says eeeewww honey. He says "What?" Shes says to him "You know you taste like Shit" and he immediatly says back to her. "Yeah, the dog didn't want to go either"
Hey, I didn't write it, I just repeated it, I thought it was funny and worth repeating. But you did laugh didn't you!!!
Ok, here are some of my crappy picutres now.

Great show indeed. I didn't get to hear much of Breaking Benjamin since I was looking for the rest of our group but you are right about Three Days Grace. And Nickelback just rocked the house. I do hope they come back to Bridgeport. They were awesome. And to play for almost 2 hours to a sold out crowd was even better than I thought it would be.
And Chad's joke was too funny. You didn't butcher it. Loved the beer shower and so thankful we didn't have general admission and get showered. I hate the smell of beer and I probably would not have been a happy person about that if I were down there.
And yes, I got a $10 t-shirt from one of the guys in the dirt lot where we normally park for the hockey games. I asked if he had an XXL and he said it was my lucky night and that it was $15. I said no, how about $10 and he said, no $15 because I have your size. He looks and oopps, only an XL, so I said ok, I take it but for $10 and he was oh ok. It's short sleeve but hey, it was only $10. The guys in the lot didn't have any more long sleeve so beggers can't be choosy for $10.

More Hockey in case you were wondering.
Current mood:amused
Ok, just wanted to rant a little bit more.
The trade deadline was on tuesday, and the Islander's traded Robert Nilsson and Ryan O'mara for Ryan Smyth of the New York Islander's. Ok since O'mara is still in Jr's it dosen't really matter so much to either team right now, but he was a 1st round draft pick. And Rob Nilsson also a 1st rounder, he was a Tiger on tuesday and a Penguin on Wednesday.
He played in WBS all week so far, and he's got a scoring streak going on. An assist in every game he's played so far. I'm happy for him, and I hope he does well with the Edmonton organization.
What that means is now the Tiger's who have now lost 5 in a row, have lost a big scorer for them. And trust me they can use what ever they can get.
Now on the other hand, the Islander's did gain, Ryan Smyth, who by the way, scored his 1st goal as an Islander tonight, in a 6-2 game over the Cap's.
And yet again, they are creeping up the list, now the 7th seed, but hey they could make it up as high as 4, which would be great.
Sorry, just had to vent a little bit again. It's hockey season, so I guess I'm allowed......right.
And BTW, I knitted during the whole game tonight....incase you were wondering.

35 things to know about men and 30 things about women.
Current mood:cheerful
I thought these were cute, so I wanted to post them. I really like them both. Sorry but just had to.

1. If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.

2. If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.

3. Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.

4. Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that's not meant to be.

5. Slower is better. Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.

6. If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't "be friends".

7. A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend. Don't settle.

8. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.

9. Don't stay because you think "it will get better".

10. You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.

11. The only person you can control in a relationship is YOU.

12. Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women.

13. He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?

14. Always have your own set of friends separate from his.

15. Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.

16. If something bothers you, speak up.

17. Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.

18. You cannot change a man's behavior.

19. Change comes from within.

20. Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are... even if he has more education or in a better job.

21. Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less.

22. Never let a man define who you are.

23. Never borrow someone else's man.

24. If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.

25. A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.

26. All men are NOT dogs.
27. You should not be the one doing all the bending . . . compromise is a two-way street.

28. You need time to heal between relationships . . . there is nothing cute about baggage . .

29. Deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.

30. You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you . . . a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals . . . look for someone complementary . . . not supplementary.

31. Dating is fun . . . even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr Right.

32. Make him miss you sometimes . . . when a man always knows where you are, and you're always readily available to him, he takes you for granted.

33. Never move into his mother's house.

34. Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.

35. Keep him in your radar, but get to know others

1. Whatever you do, don't just show up at their house...they run around in their underwear just like we do.

2. Don't cheat on them. It may seem foolproof, but girls tell each other everything about everything. Trust me, they will find out and you will be mud.

3. Beware of every single male relative and all guy friends. Any of them would kick your ass at the drop of a hat, and a lot of them wouldn't even wait for the damn hat.

4. Never miss an opportunity to tell them they're beautiful.

5. Don't refuse to kiss in front of your friends. If they laugh at you, it's because they're jealous.

6. If they slap you hard, you deserved it.

7. Don't be afraid to touch them if you want to. If they're going out with you in the first place, it's because they like being in your arms.

8. If you don't sleep with them, do not tell your friends that you did. If you DO sleep with them, do not tell your friends that you did.

9. You can be dirty minded in private, really...most of them are not offended by it...

10. Not all of them eat like birds, a lot of them can eat like whales.

11. Most of them don't mind paying half of everything, but they do discuss these things with their friends. Realize that if you make your girlfriend pay half all the time, everyone will know about it and your friends will know you're a pussy..

12. Every girl should eventually get three things from her boyfriend- a stuffed animal, one of his sweatshirts, and a really pretty ring. Even if it's not a serious relationship.

13. Make sure she gets home safely as often as you can. If you're dropping her off, walk her to the door. If you aren't dropping her off, call to be sure she's home safely.

14. If a guy is bothering her, it is your right to beat the shit out of him.

15. If you're talking to a female friend of yours, pull your girlfriend closer.
16. Never, ever slap her, even if it's just in a joking way. Even if she swats you first, and says, "Oh, you're so dumb" or something, never make any gestures back.

17. Go to a chick flick once in a while. She doesn't care whether you enjoy it or not, it just matters that you went.

18. You're dead meat if you can't get along with their pets, parents, and best friends. Be prince charming to their friends, Mr. Polite to their parents, and make sure to be nice to their animals.

19. Don't flirt with their moms...that's just freaky.

20. Don't be freaked out by PMS. It's not gross, and it really does make them feel like shit, so be understanding.

21. If you don't like the way they drive, you do it.

22. If you're officially dating, and you're introducing her to your friends, you'd better damn well introduce her as your girlfriend.

23. Don't stress where you go for every date. They really only want to be with you.

24. If they complain that something hurts, rub it for them without being asked.

25. Girls are fragile. Even if you're play fighting/wrestling, be very gentle.

26. Memorize their god damn birthdays. You forget her birthday and you're basically screwed for life.

27. Don't marinade in the cologne, but smell nice.

28. Don't give her something stupid for Valentine's day. It doesn't have to be expensive, but it has to be meaningful.

29. If you think the relationship isn't going to last, don't wait to find out. It will only hurt you more if you draw it out.

30. After you've been dating for a while, realize that they really have started to trust you. When you have a girlfriend who truly trusts you, you have a lot more responsibility, privilege and control than you would think. Be careful with it, most guys would kill for that kind of power, and it can be lost in a nanosecond

A Historic hockey game and .8 woohoo!!
Current mood:happy
Ok, who'd ever thought eighth place was a good thing. Actually at this point, it's the best thing in the whole world.
Today was a great day for Islander hockey fans everywhere. Today 2 things happend. Well actually three, but I'm not really going to count going to Long Island to see this all happen.
Today was the Islander's vs Canadien's in Nassau Coliseum, so we took the drive to New York for a 1pm game, and got to see a little history in the making.
It was a great game, the Isle's won 3-2 and Frans Nielsen scored his 1st NHL goal, a little earlier in the game he got his 1st NHL point with an assist from yet another Soundtiger (Jeff Tambellini) WOOHOO!!!
Ok Frans is the 1st born and raised Dane to play in the NHL so that in itself is some big news, but then to actually be at the game when he scores his 1st goal, that's just cool. I love historic hockey games. (God know's I've been to enough of them)
But that wasn't the only thing that happned today, with the win of Montreal, the Isle's overtake them in the standings putting them in the 8th seed which is a good thing, that means we have officially made it into playoff contention, I know it probably won't stay that way for long, but hey, its a start. If they keep chipping away they might actually make it up to 5th or 6th, and that would be just cool.
So we'll keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best, the season is starting to wind down only about 6 weeks left, so LET'S GO ISLANDER'S!!!!

A Soundtiger win and visitors from PA. WOOHOO!!!
Current mood:chipper
Ok, the soundtigers winning streak was broken saturday night by the Lowell Devils, but the streak now begins again.
The Tiger's beat the Pens on Sunday afternoon.
Ok, we had a few extra people at the game then we would normally have but that was cool.
I was happy to see them all. Hey we ususally don't get a chance to see the girls but a couple of times a year and this was one of them (Sorry it didn't have a good outcome guys)
But it was a fun day, and Now Bruno Gervais knows he is loved by a fan in Wilkes-Barre PA, thanks to me, we also found out he loves Noah Welch...but thats a whole other can of worms.

Stranded in Hartford.
Fun, Fun, Fun,
Ok so it snows, and I get stranded in Hartford. WOOHOO!!!
One good thing is I didnt have to drive home in the snow. Work does a nice thing for us, if the weather is going to be bad they will pay for a hotel room in the city so we don't have to drive home (also so they know they will have people to work and show up the day after the strom)
I had the choice to stay over on tuesday night and wednesday night, but I opted to drive home on tuesday night and brave the storm on Wednesday moring. Ok so it took me 2 1/2 hours to get from Shelton to Hartford on wednesday moning, but hey it wasn't so bad at least I didn't have to drive home in the snow at night.
It was like a little vacation (ok so maybe it wasn't vaction, but it was fun) at least I got to stay over with some friends, we went ot dinner and to breakfast this morning.
It was a long crazy couple of days. Figured, I'd just share. Hopefully nothing bad happend to anyone with the storm.

I quit my job today!!!!
Current mood:cheerful
Ok, I did a bad thing today.
My boss sent out an email a few days ago, saying that there was a new account coming to the office, at the end of the month. I emailed her back saying that I might be interested in the postion.
She sent me an email back that said EXCELLENT!!!! The hours are 8:30am-5pm m-f. I emailed her back saying that could work for me. She emailed me back, and said. WELCOME ABOARD!!!!
So shes gonna let me know when training starts so I should be starting in the next week or so. So this should prove to be intersting.
Hopefully it will all work out for me.

It's that time again....I'm knitting (not like you couldn't figure that out yourself)
Current mood:creative
Ok, yes, it is that time again, I'm knitting another purse for someone. This time, I got a good person to knit for.
I'm knitting for a hockey fan in Vancouver. Ok, so she's a Canuks fan (i'll forgive her for that one) but she's does live in Vancouver, so I guess I would have to expect that one.
I can't wait for this one. It should be fun. I went out yesterday and bought new yarn (I know I have enough already, but I needed new yarn for a new project)
I'll keep you posted on progress, hopefully it'll come out the way I want it to.
And yes.....Since I'm knitting for someone. I get a purse in return. WOOHOO!! So its a good thing all the way round. Knit a purse - get a purse.
Yay!! for me.

New work schedule.
Current mood:chipper
Ok, today was the 1st day of a new schedule. Every tuesday (well at least through April) I'm working from 1130-8pm.
It was a wonderful thing. I slept in, well I got up at 830am and didn't have to worry about rushing. I watched Good Morning America, and did a couple other little things around the house.
It was a great way to spend the morning. Ok, so I don't really want to do it every day again. I did it for so long, but one day a week its nice. It'll give me a chance to catch up on a few things if I need to do. Run errands or just not have to worry about getting up early....woohoo.
Let's see if I feel the same way in a few weeks. Hopefully it won't be to bad.

The Jetlag is finally gone.
Current mood:tired
Ok, so it only took 4 days for the Jetlag to be gone, but it finally is. And you know what. I was worth every penny of it.
I had so much fun in London. Sorry it took me so long to put up pictures and a little something about the trip. But for 4 days I was still on London time. Ok, I was only there for 3 days but in those 3 days I missed 60 hours of sleep. And that's not a joke.
It was worth the lack of sleep and the horible exchange rate. We had a great time.
I flew back and fourth in 1st class (ok, i'm never gonna be able to fly coach again in my entire life) And spend the weekend in the most beautiful hotel in the world. But really you dont need to spend $10000.00 on an airline ticket and $500.00 a night on a hotel (it's nice if you have the money but its better when you dont have to pay for it)
So see sometimes it pays to be a travel agent. I don't get a real lot of perks anymore, but this one was so nice.
We spent the 1st night on the plane, arrived in London Saturday moning and I did my 1st little bit of work we had a meeting at the Hilton Heathrow Hotel, they were suppose to take us around the hotel and give us breakfast, but we only got to see the hotel and didn't get breakfast (all I wanted was coffee....must have coffee)
After the hour cab ride from the airport to the hotel, we checked in and I went out shopping (shocker I know) but went off to Covent Garden and wandered around a little bit. The weather was beautiful, perfect for walking around all alone.
After Covent Garden, back to the hotel for cocktails and dinner, again fun. but the real fun, was the traditional english pub, the opera tavern, again had a great time.
Sunday was again a little bit of work breakfast meeting at the hotel next door and a site inspection of the hotel (we were done by 12pm) And then the worlds fastest sightseeing tour of London. What most peope do in a week we did in 3 hours. We started off at the hotel and this was our little walking tour.
And yes I was voted to be the tour guide, since I'd been there before, I got the job. We left the hotel and walked to Trafalgar Square, then to Big Ben, saw the London Eye and the Thames then on to West Minster Abby (it was sunday so we couldn't go in) After the Abby we walked to Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park, then back to Trafalgar Square (took more pictures and all along the way we shopped ) Next on to Piccadilly Circus and Leiscester Square, finally we ended in Covent Garden.
Ok, it was a long day and a long work, but we were able to get in most things you want to see when you are in London.
Sunday night after back from our little waking tour, we all deceided we were going out to dinner, so we all get together, and start walking around looking for someplace to eat.
We start wandering at about 6:30pm and finally after 8pm we deceided on the Spaghetti House. It was yummy. Then back to the hotel bar for drinks and then bed time.
Monday morning, up for work....yet again. This time we took the city bus to the London office, saw how they did things there, then back to the hotel to get our luggage and the ride back to the airport.
I can't belive it was finally over, and I would do it all again if I could.
If you want to see all the picutes I have them. I also put a few up. I wish everyone could have gone with me, it would have made it even more fun.

Another Hockey Rant.
Current mood:cheerful
Ok, here's another Hockey rant, but this time, I'm not ranting, I'm raving!!!
Tuesday the Islander's played the Ranger's and guess what. They won, the 6 game losing streak is over. Ok it probaly won't last long, they'll have the Ranger hangover and lose the next game, but that's ok too.
And yes the Tiger's are on a winning streak. 2 games in a row. It's a miracle.
I just can't belive it. Both teams might actually win a couple more games. There might just be some hope for them yet.

Happy New Year!!!!
Ok, this is my 1st blog of the new year. I know it won't be my last either, because we all know, how much I love to write about me
All I can say is I hope for 2007 to be a better year than 2006 was, I know for sure it was a better year than 2005, so as each year progesses, we hope for more and more each year.
I know the first thing about this year, that willl happen is, I'm off to London, in 12 days. I really can't wait for that. I know it;s work but i'm sure I can make the best of it.
Then we can see what else comes from that, I don't know what 2007 will bring, but I can hope for alot of things.
Ok, I won't give myself resolutions to keep, because if I do, I know that they will only stay for a few days, but if I just try to do a few select things, I might have a better chance with the things that I want to try to achieve in 2007.
I wish all of you a happy and healty New Year, I wish all of your dreams turn to reality.

Ok, its time for another Hockey Rant
Current mood:annoyed
Ok, so it really is time for another hockey rant, I'm sorry to do this to you, but it must be done.
The Tigers lost today, against their instate rivals the Hartford Wolfpack. Ok, so they haven't been able to beat the team once this entire season, and they do play them a total of 10 times.
The begining of the game the team showed some signs of life, they actually looked...should I say it good!!, but unfortunatly that wasn't very longed lived. They scored 1st and fast, and they were trying, they were really trying,
Later we find out, all the big boys were there tonight, Islander's head coach, Ted Nolan, and the big man himself, GM Garth Snow, so I think that my have put a fire under their butts, but again too little too late, they just couldn't handle it,
The refs made a terrible call in the 2nd period, they said the whisle blew and play had stopped and they disallowed a goal that clearly went in. I heard no whistle, I saw no reason to stop play, so the goal should have been allowed, that in itself totally changed the game. What finished off as a 3-2 game, should have been 3-3 and gone into overtime, hey the team plays better 4-on-4, much better actually,
I know I really shouldnt complain to badly they don't even have the worse record in the league, but something really needs to be done. I'm sorry to hear that they are "Kids" and a "young team" but really thats no excuse, they need a coach, they need disipline, they need a fire up their asses.
There are a lot of veterans on the team, guys with alot of years experience that can help these "kids" So why do I ask you don't they.
Ok, i'm going to end this now, because if I dont i'm never going to stop this rant, and it really does need to be stopped.
On a high note.

Actually Vikki dear, we did beat Hartford in Hartford way, way, way back in October (very early in the season) by a score of 6-3 when Montoya was in net. It seems like forever ago and that's why it was so easy to forget about that one win against the Wolfpack. That was also the night Drew got into his first fight of the season.
Too bad the Tigers can't seem to find a way to win again against the Wolfpack or any team for that matter lately.

Just found out....
Current mood:ecstatic
I found out the best news today at work.
I'm going to London for work, I can't wait. I'm so excited, it's my favorite city in the whole world.
But the catch is, I'm going to actually have to "work", I'm leaving on Friday January 12 and coming home on Monday January 15, so it's an over night flight going and so won't get there till Saturday morning and have only 2 days there.
That's hardly enough time to shop , but what's a girl to do, I'm probably going to be in traing all day Saturday and they might give us some free time on Sunday, then we are leaving Monday Norning,
But, I'm sure I'll be able to get some time in to do a few things. A tube ride, a trip to Harrod's (I don't care if I have to escape I'm going) and possibley a few other little things.
I can't wait, the count down is on!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!

I almost cried in work today.
Current mood:confused

It was really sad and actually kinda funny, and I just had to share, this little story.
As we all know I am a travel agent and spend my day on the phone, I was talking to this guy and he wasn't sure where he wanted to stay in Los Angeles, he was hemming and hawing about the Staples center, saying, "I think its this, I think its near that, but I'm not sure, and I say to him, I'm a big sports fan, what are you doing?
Lakers? Clippers? or Kings?
He said Clippers. and I said yes they play at the Staples center, and he said how do you know, that, again, said to him....big sports fan, then he said to me, the Kings? Isn't that Sacramento? I said NO the Los Angeles Kings....Hockey!! and he said "I thought you were a sports fan" "Hockey's not a sport!!!!"
My immediate reaction was OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
Thats just wrong, and then I proceeded to tell him that I was an Islander's fan and then he told me that was tragic.
So needless to say, I didn't get the warm and fuzzy's when I hung up that phone call, and was in a foul mood for about an hour after that.
So boys and girls that was my fun and excitement for the day. Just thought I'd share to give everyone a little laugh.

That was just so wrong of that guy to say that hockey is not a sport. HOCKEY IS THE BEST SPORT THERE IS next to baseball and football. LOL!!!!!!! Now if he said cheerleading is not a sport then I would have agreed with that comment more.
Hang in there Vikki, it will get better (I hope).

2 days, 2 states, 2 games, part, well let me think.......oh yeah, part 2
Current mood:sick
2 days, 2 states, 2 games, and this time the little added bonus, was not being able to speak. So that was just cool. And yet again, one game was a win and one was not. Yet both games were played against the Senators.....hmmmmmmm, go figure.
Well, let me explain, ok the game on the losing end was the Islander's/Senator's and we were in New York, it was a good game, they started off kinda bad, but they were playing with a Ranger hangover so that kinda explains that. Hey they woke up in the 3rd period, but too little too late.
And now for the winning game of the two, Bridgeport played the Binghamton Senators.....see I told you there was an explaination for it. The Senators scored 1st but that didn't help them win, they got the tied and Bridgeport scored with 23 secs left of O/T so that was a good thing.
Ok, I couldn't talk through the entire game, and I'm sure that made some people happy....hehehehe. But hey it was another win on home ice so I'll take it.

Current mood:sick
Ok, after a fun filled weekend, of Hockey I end up with strep throat, I don't know were or when I got it, all I know is i'm suffering from it.
It sucks, for any of you who have ever had it it's awful, it takes over your whole body and just makes you feel weak and nasty. I've been on antibiotic for 24 hours now, so at least I'm not contagious any more. That's a plus. But tonights game should be fun.
Saturday, we went to Lowell Ma, to see the Devils play (and they won) so that was a great game. after the game we drove back to dawns house and stayed over night. So that too was fun.
Sunday, state number 2, we went to manchester to see the monarchs play, the outcome there wasn't as good. But hey you can't win them all, right, but it would be nice.
Ok, gonna run for now, have to get ready, I'm off to the island, to see another game. woohoo!!!

Here's the 1st hockey rant of the season, but don't worry, I'm sure there will be more to come.
All I can say is WOOHOO!!! for todays game. It was the 1st win of the season for Bridgeport at home in regulation. I can't believe it. It's the 20th game of the season, and they finally get a regulation win.
Ok so they have some problems, 1st we have a coach, that's never coahed before in his life, hey, when I grow up can I be a hockey coach, apparently if you ask nicely you can be, so everything is just a mess, theres never the same line twice, you look out, and you never know what you're gonna see.
Tonight, we had 2 forwards and 3 defenseman out for a faceoff, (hey isn't it suppose to be ther other way around) it was actually kinda funny. Let me continue, way too many stupid penalties, and the lack of skating ability. There's a player that just keeps falling down....all by himself, with no help of anyone else.
It was acutally funny the other night in hartford, during warmups he fell down, and all the guys turned and laughed at him, some evem pointed and laughed, it was very amusing.
Tonight was a turn around for a team that actually was dead last in the powerplay in the league at the start of the game, was able to move themselves up 4 places, after scoring 4 powerplay goals tonight, my thought is hey they're shy, they doing like scoring infront of a big crowd, and they certainly were busting at the seams tonight with a crowd maybe of 500 people, but those 500 people saw something no one else has all season....a win.
So far the highlight of the season, the team actually leads the league in the Penalty Kill, in 20 games they have only allowed to give up 12 goals (one of those was tonight) and trust me they are on the kill alot....hello all those stupid penalties they take, dumb, blatant penalties, things they should know better than doing.
Well this was the 1st game of the week, I have 2 more this weekend, I'm going to Lowell to see the Devils on Saturday, and Sunday to Manchester to see the Monarchs, hey it was suppose to be vacation this week and we didn't have anything planned so ROAD-TRIP, and staying over night in Hartford, at Dawn's house.
Sorry I ranted so much, but hope you enjoyed reading it all, I hope only to be able to write good hockey things from now untill the end of the season, hey I'm hopeful.

So, I may not have the lips of an Angel, but I do have the mind of a PSYCHO!!!
Ok, so it's black friday today. And yes, every year, it's kinda like a little tradition.
I get myself up at the crack of dawn and go out shopping, today was no different.
Went out yesterday and got all of the circulars and read through them. I was in search of a new camera, since mine died in the middle of vacation.
I really needed a new one, so theres no time like the present.
After digging through, I finally deceide on Best Buy, they have a Kodak camera 6.1 mp with 10x optical zoom on sale (friday and saturday only BOTH DAYS) so I'm up and out of the house before 430am.
I start out at Bestbuy in Trumbull...the lines are crazy and the store isn't open yet. Go in and no camera. (they also had a laptop on sale for 327.00, but knew I'd never get it, so just passed it)
Next stop Orange, wait in line to get in and again, no camera. So I travel to next bestbuy in Meriden, again, wait in line, and again, no camera. But after that, bestbuy is in meridien mall, so take a stop off at the mall, and go buy a couple of outfits (hey i'm in the mall and other than bestbuy the malls actually kinda empty) The the final stop for the morning, West Hartford, again, line no camera.
It's now a little before 8am and I have to be in work for 9am, so I cut my losses and go to work.
In work all day for 8 hours, on what was suppose to be a quiet day, which it wasnt' was going to try to shop online for this elusive camera, i was too busy and I couldn't do it.
I couldn't even go after work because there was a game, so I figure, hey it's a long holiday season, someones bound to have a camera along the way.
One the way home from the game, I pass by....guess what. Best buy in trumbull .....yet again, and think, hey this sale was for Firday and Saturday, 2 days they shouldn't have been sold out of these damn cameras that morning they have to have more.
So back to best buy we go. And guess what. THEY HAD THE DAMN CAMERA!!!!!!!!
I knew a little perseverance and determination would pay off. So I am now the proud owner of a new camera. WOOHOO!!! So for all of you that get pictures from me, you now will be able to get good pictures from me.
I can't wait to start taking them. It's going to the game with me tommorrow, the batteries are charged, the memory card is empty, all I can do now, is SAY CHEESE!!!!!

10 Day, 2400 Miles, and Only 5 soap stars.
Current mood:amused
Ok, I made it home safe and sound.
It was a really really long drive, but it was worth it. I had a great time.
The whole reason to go to Disney World this past week, was Super Soap Weekend. What is SSW you ask? Well, let me explain.
Every year Disney has SSW and they take about 20 ABC soap stars and bring them to disney for 1 weekend, its a mad house, for 2 days in MGM Studios, this year there were about 25 stars and 65,000 screaming fans.
For those of you who watch ABC soaps you might have heard of this, but for thoese who don't. Here's some pix that I took with the 5 that I met.
And they were.
From - All My Children -
Jacob Young "JR"

One Life to Live
Kathy Brier "Marcie"

Erika Slezak "Viki" (I might have even been named after her, I don't know)

Renee Goldsberry "Evangeline"

General Hospital Scott Clifton "Dillon"

A bunch of pix are posted, in a few places so feel free to coment if you'd like. Hope eveyone had a good week. I know I did.
Other than SSW, Disney was great as ususal it really is the Happiest place on earth. I can go there time and time again, and not be bored. I really love it.

The "BET"
Current mood:excited
Ok, heres the deal. I made a bet with one of my friends. So he's a Devil's fan and I'm an Islander's fan, as I'm sure you all know. The Islander's played the Devil's on Thursday night.
And the bet was if the Islander's win he would wear my jersey, and if the Devils win I would wear his jersey, and the loser had to take a picture and use it as their default picture until the end of the year.
So, the game was going well the Islanders scored 1st and I was hopeful they would win, but still not putting to much into it.....come on it is the Islanders were are talking about, but still there was hope. The final outcome....the score was 5-2, but let's let the pictures tell you.

All I can say is he was a good sport about it....Thanks Jeff. But I can't forget there are 7 more games the Isle's play against the Devil's so I'm sure a lot can happen during those 7 games.

A witchy weekend.
Current mood:bouncy
Ok, it took me a while to write this one but it was worth the wait.
Had a great weekend in Salem. I can't believe the weather was crappy...yet again this year, Saturday was just gross and rainy and windy and cold...hey at least it didn't snow, so that's a plus.
We went around town on saturday during the day went to a few of the little shops in town, we went to a pshyic fair....and I paid $30 for what reason, for some ding-dong to tell, me the complete opposite of what really happens.
She told me I'm not a happy person, I get along with my mother and not my father, I should start to go out more, I always stay home, and a few other things that were so far off she could've been on mars.
Saturday night we went to the big Halloween Ball it was great, I dressed as tinkerbell, we got there late, but that's ok. We actually ran into someone that we met the previous, what are the chances that would happen again, there were like 1000 people there.
Sunday we went back to town, did a couple of little things that we couldn't do in the rain and crappy weather. It was nicer but it was so windy I think we could've blown away from the damn wind. But all-in-all it was a good weekend.
Can't wait to do it all again.

I started Fantasy Hockey. I probably shouldn't have done it, but I thought it would be fun. I really think its going to either drive me to drink or want to kill someone.
But I got some cool players with my draft picks I even got the $67 million boy. WOOHOO, let's see how that works out for me....I'm thinking probably not so well.
Here's my team so far. Hope everone enjoys watching me drive myself crazy all season, but really thats not a long ride.

It's all about the Pink
Current mood:cheerful
This was a weekend of hockey, knitting and pink was included with both of those things.

I was knitting at the hockey game this weekend...of course I was, did you expect anything less of me. But I was working on the booties and now a hat. I can't believe it, back to the ususal.

I was watching 2 games our 1st two home games of the season, and yes they were both losing games :-(

I guess, they are just going to have to play all the games on the road. That way we might win all of our games.

Sundays game was "Pink Rink" night, it was for breast cancer awareness, the players used pink sticks and they auctioned them off, I think they said they raised over $7000.00 for everything that they did that night. It was a good cause so we dressed in pink to support this good cause. And I happily donated to the cause as well. Last weekend, we actually did the breast cancer walk and as a group we raised over $2000.00, so again, I think we did.

Here are some pictures of the pink sticks. Hope everyone enjoys.

1st Real weekend of Hockey
Current mood:sleepy
1st after work on friday we saw our 1st regular season game. It was the Hartford Wolfpack vs Bridgeport Soundtigers. (the big instate rivals)
They squeaked out a win with 5 unanswered goals in the 3rd winning 6-3, it was looking a little scary for a while but they pulled it off.
Saturday we went to the 2nd game of the seaons in Wilkes-Barre PA. That game didn't turn out quite the way we wanted it to.
They lost 4-1, but in other good New's the Islander's won a game with the same score 4-1. woohoo, I guess if the $67million boy dosen't play we win.
But after driving home from PA saturday night, I got up early sunday morning and did a Breast Cancer walk in Harford, so, a 3 hour drive from PA, a 1 hour drive to Hartford, and 6 miles and 115.00 later, I'm home and 1/2 asleep.
The only good thing is, I finished the scarf that I'm going to wear to "Pink Rink" night on Sunday. It should be a fun game, the players are wearing Pink jersey's and gloves, and using Pink sticks.
I can't wait to take pictures.....big burly hockey players wearing pink. It's going to be funny.

It's gonna be a long season
Current mood:chipper
Ok, here's the 1st of many posts for this hockey season.
Today was the 1st game of the season...well the 1st game we got to go to, the opener was in Binghampton NY last sunday, and we didn't go.
It was Friday the 13th, it was against the Wolfpack, and the Soundtigers won the game. WOOHOO.
It didn't look to promising for a while there. The score was 3-1 in the 2nd period. But they pulled it off. 5 unanswered goals by the Tigers. And they took game 1 of the Geico Cup series. (since we didn't win it last year, but really who cares)
All I can say, is I hope saturdays game goes as well. But they are playing in Wilkes-Barre, so I really don't know. It's the 1st time back since that awful game 7 lost in round 1 of the playoffs last season.
I don't know if that will mean anything or if they are looking to settle some scores, or if they are just looking to come in and kick some penguin ass. Kitty cats like birdys (sorry to all the girls in WBS, but you know I still love you)
I think, that pretty much sums it all up. I'm sure I'll have alot to complain about this season, so theres plenty of reading material coming soon to a blog near you.

It was a bad day to be a Travel Agent and Yankee fan
It was a crazy day today. Working in a travel agency when a plane crashes in NYC into a building, not the best place to be.
All hell breaks loose then we find out what actually happend and in shock.
I can't believe about Lidle. Even if you're not a Yankee fan, you still have to feel for him. He was a young guy in the height of his career, with a wife and 6 year old.
It's just very sad. So now I say a little prayer to his family.

The saga continues.
Current mood:crazy
Ok, if you thought it was bad yesterday, you should've seen me today.
I check this morning and woohoo, most of my money was back in the account, but they still had some fees that were out standing, ok I can deal with that, just wanted to see if they fixed them later in the day.
So go back to the bank and check.
Now the account is back in the negitive.
This time. $65,754.13. Ok, I can see it happening once, that's an accident, but twice, with 2 different checks this time.
Some moron, doesnt know how to type. I think they need Typing for Dummies.
But again, after fighting with the bank this afternoon AGAIN!!!
Problem, solved for the moment. I check tonight and still almost all the money is back. How long this is gonna last. Your guess is as good as mine.
Hopefully it dosent happen again, because I swear, I'm gonna go postal.

You know it's gonna be a bad day!!!!
Current mood:crappy
Ok, I was at work today, and deceided that I really didn't want the lunch that I had with me....It was nothing exciting, a little frozen meal.....salsbury steak, so I figured, I would run out and grab something for lunch (wanted the thai restaurant down the street) but didn't have any cash on me.
I went over to the ATM and figured, I'd take out $20.00, enough to grab lunch and if I needed a couple extra bucks I'd have it. The damn machine spit out a reciept that said it couldn't process my request, so I figured, the damn machine was broken.....I went down the way a little bit and went to another machine, and got the same response.
Thinking how is this possible, I just got paid the other day and there was still money left in the account.
So I figured, I would do a balance inquiry and it came out.
$7315.00. Yes you read that right. $7315.00 So I ran back to the office and called the bank....houston, we have a problem.
The woman at the bank said.....let see if I can figure out what happened....well duh, I know what happend. I've never written a check that big in my enitre life...dumb ass.
She did a little research and relized...oopps the bank made a typo, they posted someone else's $8000.00 check to my account.
Let me tell you how much I love typo's, this is the 2nd big one thats screwed me up royally. The 1st one made me dead, the 2nd one, made me lose $7000.00. Hello people, learn to type.
After almost an hour on the phone and most of my sanity now gone. They told me they would fix the error....ya screwed up, you fix it.
But now, I have no money for 2 days while they fix the problem. Thank god, I have gas in the car and a couple of bucks for coffee. And hey, I still had lunch today, wasn't really what I wanted but, I ate it anyway.

10 Comandments of Hockey.
Current mood:cheerful
Since opening day is less than a week away, I'd figure I'd share them with you. Ok, I need to work on a few of them, but what's a girl to do. At least it dosent say you can't knit and watch at the same time.
1. Thou shall keep thy butt in Thou's seat whenever the puck is in Play.
2. Thou shall not put any team before the home team.
3. Thou shall dress appropriatley so that one can be recognized for which team you are allienced to, and so that there will be no need for fixing hair,makeup, and assorted bra-straps during the game.
4. Thou shall not have disruptive electronic communicative devices at your seat during the hockey game.
5. Thou shall not covet the visiting teams players.
6. Thou shall let others fully express themselves at all times during a hockey game.
7. Thou shall do everything humanly possible to disrupt the opposing goaltender.
8. Thou shall take the ref's name in vain.
9. Thou shalt not die during a hockey game.
10. Thou shalt cheer as hard as possible for the home team no matter what he score is, no matter what the season record is.

Sheep, Cows, Pigs, Alpaca's and Tigers...HMMM which one dosent belong?
Current mood:busy
It's only Wednesday and it's already been a busy week. Yesterday I went to the Big E. Had a great day, Wandered aimlessly around the fairgrounds, for about 6 hours, I was happy I got to see all of the animals, Cows, Pigs, Sheep....yes I saw the sheep.
Also wandered around all of the little shops and stores and managed to buy only a couple of things.....I did pretty good considering.
Found a woman in the state of CT, and she showed me how to use a drop spindle (incase you are wondering, it's a way to spin yarn without actually using a spinning wheel) So that's going to be my next venture, not only am I going to knit, I'm going to use yarn that I made myself, I can't wait to try it, it's the little things in life that excite me.
Speaking of excited....... I went to my 1st hockey game of the season tonight. After work, I drove to Providence, and saw a Soundtigers/P-Bruins pre-season game. It was a good game, the Tigers won......WOOHOO, let's see what happens when they play on friday.
The guys looked pretty good. We only had 4 players from last season that played in this game, so there were a lot of new players, guys I have no clue who they were, but hey, I guess we will know them soon enough.
Our regular season starts at home on Ocotber 20, so I have to wait a little bit for that, but we have a game Friday in Shelton, Saturday (that's a Isle's/Devil's game) and Sunday another Hartford game, the 3rd hartford game of the preseason. Let's see what happens, and All I can say is "Let's GO Tiger's"

It's gonna be a good week.
Current mood:giddy
No really it is!!!!
Ok, so its the little things in life that make me happy.
It's gonna be a long funfilled week, we are going to a couple of hockey games this week. Wednesday, Bridgeport vs Providence in Providence, Friday Brdigeport vs Hartford in Shelton (yes they play hockey in shelton at the coldest rink in the enitre world) Saturday New York Islander's vs New Jersey Devil's (I need to stalk at that game, I have to find Shawn Bates to get my Jersey signed.....Hey it was a game worn and it was cheap so I had to buy it) and finally sunday Bridgeport vs Hartford (yes again, this time in cromwell)
Now in the middle of all of this, I told my mother I would take her to the Big-E, I think I might get "sick" on Tuesday or Thursday, still not sure what day yet. but one of them. And hey just think of all the crap that I can buy.
It should be a fun week. Haven't really had hockey withdrawl yet for the season, been too busy with baseball and football, but once it starts and gets in full swing, I'm all done. So all I can say is.
Let's Go Tiger's
Let's Go Dolphin's
Let's Go Islander's
And oh yeah
Let's go Yankee's (AL East Champs 9years in a row)

The purse is almost done, just have to sew it together and then felt it, and the scarf is almost done as well.
I got all this finished on Saturday and Sunday. Ok, so that's all I did all weekend was watch 4 Yankees game (only 1 winning game) and 1 Dolphin's game (no winner there...Stupid Dolphin's)
But hey all I have to do with the scarf is finish the last row and it's done.
Then it's baby blanket finishing time. Just have to get finished by October 1st so still have 2 weeks of quality knitting time.

Do I say it now or should I wait..........
Current mood:aggravated
Ok, I'll say it now!!!
Ok, so you all knew it was coming, but UUUUGGGGHHH, it's gonna be a long football season. That's usually something that happens about week 7 or 8, I'm wandering around aimlessly muttering it under my breath, ok so now I got to say it on week one....woohoo, makes me proud.
Ok, so I really wasn't all their fault they lost 28-17, but 1 bad penatly in when it was 3rd and 16, hands to the face, 5 yard/automatic 1st down. so what should have been a punt deep in enemy territory turned into the steelers marching up the field to the 50 yard line or so, then a 86 yard run back in the 4th quarter that was called a touchdown, but after the replay showed the guy was out of bounds at the 2 yard lines, ok so they still might have gotten the touchdown, but it wasn't a guarantee, they could have screwed it up and not gotten it. Then 2 passes by Culpepper, and 2 interceptions run in for touchdowns.
It was just an ugly game, they started off so promising but it just didn't end that way.
Ok thats enough of my ranting. On a postive note.
While watching the game, I got 1/2 of my pocketbook knitted. So only a little more to go. It's gotta be done by October 31, it'll be done by next weekend, if I keep up at this rate.

Ok, just had to share,
I look like a lobster. I sat outside all day today watching minor, minor, minor, minor league baseball. Ok, so the New Haven County cutters won both cames of the double header that they played.
WooHoo. They've made the playoffs, but now, I have to suffer for a couple of days.
Hey that's ok being sunburn means that the sun was acutally out and it wasn't raining for once. So that in itself is a good thing.
Going back tommorrow, for a little more pain and punishment from the sun.

Knitting & Baseball
Current mood:crazy
Ok it was a long weekend of both.
I want to say WOOHOO!!! The Yankees, swept the Red Sox in a 5 game series, it' really was a long weekend, it was such a long weekend, I think even Stienbreiner, put out a memo, that no one had to shave this weekend, because if you watched any of the games, they all have facial hair, a little scruff here and there, and a few very, very bad moustache's.
Ok, since I watched baseball all weekend (Yes I know, I have no life) What did I do while watching you ask....I was knitting, of course I was knitting that was a dumb question to ask, don't you think.
I even worked on the ever elusive orange sweater, well the only reason that I worked on it was because I needed the needles that it was on to start another project.
Ok, so now working on a baby blanket and a new purse...just because I don't have enough of them, I have to knit more for myself.
I hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did.

It was not a good day for baseball.
Current mood:cranky
First I spent the day at work trying to listen to the Yankee game on the radio, with no luck, so I was able to follow along online with MLB gameday. Thank god for that.
Then, off to a Cutter's game, and the only high point of that game was, it was thirsty thrusday, which means one thing. $1 beer night. WOOHOO.
I'll let you know how that works out for me tommorrow. But for now I'm off to bed and hoping this weekend will be better for all Yankees fans out there.
LET'S GO YANKEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Talk Dirty to ME!!!!!!!!!
Current mood:ecstatic
C.C. Pick up that guitar and talk to me!!!
Ok, tonight was a great night. Went to go see Poison, and yes it started out as a land that time forgot. Ok, there were many, many scary people there tonight. I swear they didn't have to get "dressed" up for the concert, because most of the people there, never left 1986.
No I'm not kidding. It was actually frightening.!!! But I even got into it a little bit, I wore a denim skirt and leggins (yes I said leggins but hey I bought them on sunday, so it was ok)
Cinderella opened for Poison and no they really weren't that good, they were aiiet (that's my story and I'm sticking to it)
But Poison was awsome. They played for almost 2 hours, it was loud it was obnoxious, it was great.
Of course it there were the ususal. C.C Deville Guitar Solo, (that went on for about 10 minutes) A Ricki Rocket Drum Solo (another 10 minutes). Brett even had a little cowbell/harmonica solo (don't ask you really had to be there)
All I can say is wow. had a great night and can't wait till they come around again.

I said it was gonna be a long week and it was.
Current mood:crazy
Ok, so it's finally over. The worst part about it is, now I get to start it all over again.
Worked all day today.....UUUUGGGGHHH
That just sucked. The most beautiful day of the entire summer so far and I had to work. 12pm-8pm. So I didn't even get to enjoy any of it.
I left my house at 1030am this morning and didn't get home until after 9pm tonight.
The highlight of the day was lunch. Hey at least if we have to work on the weekend, they feed us.
I had the Farmhouse Salad from the Irish Pub across the street. It was a very interesting concept. It was romaine, baby spinach, tomatoes, and chicken, but instead of dressing, the salad was topped with...yes fried onions and bacon. The onions and the bacon were kinda sauteed together, in a balsamic mustard dressing. It was yummy, now I really want to try to make it for myself.
Next week's gonna be a long one too, going to see Poison and Cinderella at the meadows on wednesday, and then probably a couple of baseball games.
Hope everyone has a good week. Talk to you all soon

The only good thing about it, is 25 hours of overtime. WOOHOO, still haven decieded on what to do with the money.....A shoe shopping trip sounds like it might be in order. If I survive the week.

Git-R-Done Part one
Current mood:bouncy

So it's been a busy couple of days. Thursday night, we went to see Chicago and Huey Lewis and the News at the meadows. It was a long day, but it was worth it.
Huey was awsome. And hey he still has it for an old guy. The show was great, after his set he came out and jammed with Chicago even sang Color my World. That was a great.
Chicago, was also good, I've seen them, probably like 10 time before, but and they were better the times that I saw them, but they they too are getting old. But they still rocked the place when the needed too. And slowed it down, with some great old ballads, the ones you know and love.
Tonight, as you can tell is Larry the Cable Guy. Can't wait. It's been awhile since I've seen him and now i'm counting the hours till I can see him again. He's great. So, I will keep you posted, on how that all turns out. Going with a group of friends, and meeting up with a friend that I haven seen in a really long time. So it's should be a fun night.

A historic day at Yankee Stadium....And I was there. WOOHOO
Current mood:cheerful
Ok, it might have actually been worth it to sit in Yankee stadium today and sweat my ass off in 100degrees. EEEWWWW!!!! So it was hot and sticky and gross, but the game was well worth it.
After a great 1st inning, with Derek Jeter homering (just a solo, but don't worry, we'll take it) and another one by A-Rod (woohoo he did something, that one was a double shot.) the yankees took a 3-1 lead, and hey it was only the 1st,
After chipping away at a couple more runs the yankees were still up 6-4 then here comes "MO" - enter sandman, and I saw him starting to warm up in the bull pen (we were sitting in loge near the bullpen) and my 1st thought was, hey 2 men on base, "Mo's gonna get the save" little did i know at that exact moment i was to see history in the making ,only the 4th pitcher in MLB history to do what he did, make 400 saves. S
So that was a great thing. I'm so happy I was there to see it. It was a great game a good day and all in all it was fun. And hey the yankees, are only a 1/2 game behind the redsox now.
Let's go Yankees.

I know I'm not a Yankees fan, but it must have been amazing to be there to see Moriano get his 400th career save. I'm glad you had a good time, with the exception of the heat.

Tired but worth it.

Ok, so it was a crazy day yesterday and today, I worked all day yesterday, and last night went to the Casino to go see, JoDee Messina and Chris Cagle.
It was a great show....but unfortunaly, the drive from Hartford to the Casino, wasnt the best, acutually, it was the worst traffic, i've seen in a while....up untill today that is (but that story is coming)
I didn't get there untill 745, I missed probably 4 or 5 songs by Chris, including my favorite song he sings, but, got to hear the most important (chick's dig it, which is so true) Sorry, off track , A.D.D. kicking in. Traffic. Route 2 was closed, about 20 miles outside of hartford. so backed off and entrance ramp turned around drove back to hartford, got on rt 9 and drove down to 95 and up to the casino.....uuuuugggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, back on track. We had front row seats and it was awsome. I was able to make the whole end of the rest of the Chris Cagle set and all of JoDee Messina, so that was a plus.
Now, the dumbest thing that I did, I told one of the girls in work I would switch hours with her, so Stupidly I worked 8-430 today, uuuggghhh!!! After getting home from the casino at 130 in the morning. speaking of uuuuggghhhh!!!!
The only plus was i got out of work at 430, (now for the bad part) got out of work at 4:30 but didn't get home until 7:15pm, this time I-91 was closed from a 13 car pile up. All I can say if this happens again, I think I might just kill myself. I HATE TRAFFIC!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, 'nuff bitchin' for now, just wanted to keep everyone updated. If you want to see pix, let me know, and I'll forward them on. But here's a couple so enjoy.

What happens in Malone....
As you can tell, usually dosen't stay there, If you look at my'll see that.
It was a fun weekend, and exciting weekend. It started out as an 8 hour drive. UUUGGGHHH, so we leave the house before 8am, ok all well and good, we stop on the way up for breakfast and we are on our way.....thank god for satellite radio, it really saved the day.

After a couple of stops for gas potty breaks and lunch at the Ground Round, we finally make it to our destination of Malone NY.


We proceed to our home away from home, The Econologe and when I check us in I'm told by the desk clerk, I was a lucky one. He was happy that I had reservations, because every room in town was booked, the closest town with rooms was Montreal, so Lucky us. Then the next thing he tells me...being so lucky....I've got the nicest room in the hotel. It's the biggest room, the end unit in the private building, with the biggest balcony and he keeps going on...and...on...and...on, about how great this room is, and finally the last ssentence he spit out is, the balcony....overlooks the dumpster.....oooohhh like.

So, now we are in our room, its now 5pm and we have to be to the shower at 6pm....uugggh, so its a quick change, and we are on our way.

Now it's shower time, we do the standard little shower games and fun little things watch the presents and all little oddsies and endsies, and we are off to the Batcherlorette party.

The limo arrives, we have our 1st cermonial drink and then let the fun begin.

Starting off with the party games.

Game 1. Truth or Dare
Game 2. Beads for Shots.

Ok, game one is pretty self explainitory....Ask Lisa....zzzzzzzzzzzzz

Game 2, kinda like Mardi gras, you still have to earn your beads, but just by drinking a shot, earns you a bead.....woohoo.

Wanna take a guess, how many beads I had?

Ok, so it's a batchelorette party, with 8 grils in a limo....waht do you do?

GO BAR HOPPING!!!!!!!!!!

Don't ask me where I went...because, I just don't know!!!

The only thing that I know is....I may or maynot have broken my finger.....I'll keep you posted.....But 1st let me tell you how.

Lesson of the day.

Don't ride a mechanical Bull...or in my case...a mechanical cow......yes, it was a cow. His name was Clyde.....he was a nice cow.....well sorta

And hey before, I was thrown violently from said bucking cow, i made it about 6 seconds...ok, so i'm not ready for the PBR, just yet, but i didn't do to bad for my 1st time.....hey it was a site, and i'm sure it was something that really didn't need to be done, but it seemed like the thing to do at the time.
Finally after a few more bars and dancing all night long and collecting all of my beads it's home back to the econolodge we go.

Didn't get a chance to get over the border. So instead we drove home the senic route through Vermont, and we went to the Vermont Teddy bear factory and also Ben&Jerry's

That's really all I can say about this weekend. It was a fun weekend, if you want to see the pictures, let me know, there are a few floating around the page, as you can see. but other than that, I have them all and as always will email them out to anyone that wants to see them....thank god for yahoo photos.

We get to go out and have fun on Saturday night and then on sunday we can be border jumpers. WOOHOO, hey all those french words, I know, will finally pay off.
I can't by on my looks alone.....God know's thats true.
But, it should be fun. I'll keep everyone posted when I get home. I'm sure I will have some interesting pictures.

31 Things Ways To Make a Girl Smile :-) Sorry, it was a bulletin, but I really like it
Current mood:amused
1. Dont hug her friends or your friends that are girls cause she'll feel left out

2. Hold her hand at any moment . . . even if its just for a second.

3. Hug her from behind

4. Leave her voice messages to wake up to.

5. Wrestle with her :)

6. Don't go hang out with your ex when shes not with you, you might not realize how badly it hurts her.

7.If you're talking to another girl, when you're done talking, walk over and hug her and kiss her.... let her know she's yours and they aren't.

8. Write her notes or call her just to say "hi"

9. Introduce her to your friends . . . as your girlfriend.

10. Play with her hair.

11. Pick her up (she loves it)

12. Get upset if another guy touches her and she doesn't like it

13. Make her laugh

14. Let her fall asleep in your arms.

15. If she's mad at you, kiss her.

16. If you care about her, then TELL HER

17. Every guy should give their girl 2 things: a stuffed animal(she'll hug it every time she goes to sleep), and one of his t-shirts (she'll most likely wear it to bed).

18.Treat her the same around your friends as you do when you're alone.

19. Look her in the eyes and smile.

20. Hang out with her on weekends

21. Kiss her in the rain (girls love this)

22. Kiss her just for the heck of it

23. If your listening to music, let her listen too.

24. Remember her birthday and get her something, even if
its simple and inexpensive, it came from YOU. It means all the world to HER.

25. When she gives you a present on your birthday, Christmas, or just whenever, take it and tell her you love it, even if you don't (it'll make her happy.)

26.Always call her when you say you will, it may not seem like it, but it does hurt her and makes her think you don't care so call even if you can only talk for a minute. Girls don't necessarily have to have hour-long conversations every night but its nice for us to hear your voice even for a quick hello.

27. Give her what she wants

28. Recognize the small things . . . they usually mean the most.

29. Tell her shes beautiful

30. Hang out with her whenever you are free and u should be free to hang with your girl friend all the time

31. If u care about her...SHOW her!

Guys repost this if u would do it...

Girls repost this if u thinks its sweet...

Random Thoughts....I thought it was funny, but you probably had to be there
Current mood:amused
Figured, I had to share this, I just thought it was funny. Summer time is coming, and since Hockey season is over and baseball season is in full swing, the Yankees, are in 1st place for the moment and it's looking good so far, And the New Haven County Cutters season, just started, but so far so good.
Last night we went to a game. It's a thursday night game so that means it's Thirsday Thursday. Which is ok too, hey it's $1 Coor's light, so it could be better beer, but you really can't bitch alot for a buck. Also, it was Midget wrestling night, so again, an interesting promotion, that they do every year.
(Ok, I promise I have a point and I will make it soon.)
Now here comes the funny part. After the game, they had the Midget wrestling, and they take everyone and let them go onto the field, able to watch. Since the game is over and the players are wandering around (also trying to watch, I think even they thought it was funny) This drunk girl walks up to one of the players. (this guy)
Now he's just getting off the field, he's a catcher, and he's carrying his mask, and chest protector and everything else under the sun. He's covered in Dirt and carrying a bag with other equipment, and this and then "drunk girl" asks him, with a straight face. "DID YOU PLAY TONIGHT?"
And our 1st thought was no, I went out bought this uniform, rolled around in the dirt and carried all this guys equipment for nothing. Ok, so I know, I'm not the average girl, I watch sports and yes....I do understand whats going on!!! And I know not a girls do, some try to, but come on. The only thing I think, I can say right now. Is wow, look what a little alcohol will do!!!!

Dumb Blonde.....Not So DUMB!!!!
Current mood:happy
IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It only took me 2 days and just a little more of my sanity is now gone, but my Siirus Radio is hooked up, and in the car and in working order.
I really didn't think I was gonna make it. It was a little touch and go for a while, but....I got it to work.
Reading the instruction booklet, I thought I was gonna need a degree from M.I.T. to get the damn thing to work. But, I did it.
Hooked it up ran the wire from one side of the car through the trunk up and down the windows from teh back seat to the front seat. (thank god for a little intuition and electrical tape.
But, it works and is awsome, I really like it. So if anyone wants a listen just let me know.

Does this make me shallow??....YES IT DOES!!!!
Current mood:ecstatic
As everyone knows, As much as I love hockey and knitting, there is only one greater love in my life. MY SHOES!!!! I am a shoe fanatic. I have tons, numbers in the 100's I can rival Carrie Bradshaw (my idol by the way).

Yes I know I have issues. But I've learned to deal with them, and to love them. To know me is to love me, and Love me...Love my shoes.

After much "sole" searching, I finally broke down. I sacrificed many many things. And bought a pair of Manolo Blahnik's. Real ones, not knock offs, not fakes, but the honest to god real thing. And they are soooooo PRETTY!!!

They came in today. And they are FABULOUS!!!! They fit perfect and they are now, my most prize possession. Like I said, does this make me shallow? My response, yes it does, and no I don't care. I don't think, i've been so excited in so long. (Probably was almost as good as seeing Jody Robinson wanding through the arena and if you where there you know how excited that made me....I think i vibrated with excitment. And today was probably a little bit better than that)

It's something that I've wanted to for a really really long time. So I bought them. I just figured, I'd share this good news with everyone. Don't think i'm crazy...And if you do that's ok too.

If you want to see them here they are. So what do you think?

Today's Lesson.....What not to do.
Current mood:cheerful
Ok, what not to do when driving home from Hartford.
1. Don't speed up to get out of the lane you need to be in to get off the exit to get on the merrit parkway.
2. Don't Drive by a statey doing 85 in a 55.....OOOPPPSS!!!!
3. Try to talk your way out of a ticket.
OK, these were all things that I tried to do today, and failed miserably . All of a sudden get off I-91 and realize I had just passed the cop....SHIT!!! Ok, he didn't see me, i'm ok. NOT!!! after about 2 miles later see flashing blue lights in the rearview. Ok, so he pulls up. License/Registration/Insurance Card and the best question of them all. So do you know why I pulled you over, and doing my best dumb blonde impression (no I really didn't have to work to hard on that.) NO Well Maam I clocked you doing 85 in a 55...again OOPPSS!!! Sorry didn't realize I was going that fast...but that wasn't working. So he goes with his little partner (yes there were 2 of them) back to the car to write up my ticket.
He comes back all big and bad. "The ticket for going 30 miles over the limit is $284.00" Ok, now you realize you were driving excessivly and I can arrest you and bring you to Union station in New Haven for reckless driving, "This is a road you drive every day and you should know the speed limit" ....Hello Dumb Blonde behind the wheel, I swear it was 65 where he snaged me.
But, he said "This is what I'm gonna do" Give you only a verbal for the speeding, and $93.00 ticket for an inproper lane change" WOOHOO!!!
My immediate response. YES SIR!!! I packed up my ticket and let him go ahead of me. But further down the road. He got someone else.
All I can say, the State of CT is a little bit richer today, because of him.
So children. What have we learned in Today's lesson? Be nice to the nice officer and he might be nice to you

Happy and Sad.
Current mood:indifferent
Ok as you can tell, from my page. Hockey season is now offically over for the Bridgeport Soundtigers. And it was a sad ending to a very exciting season. With all the call ups and injury's we get the last spot in the division. So they sneak in by the skin of their teeth and we go on to play the WBS Penguins. After 7 very long and hard games, we lose. Not only do they lose but make history in the process. In the 70 year history of the AHL, this is the only playoff series to go 7 games and all be 1 goal games.
So it proves one thing, just becase the last place team played the 1st place team, the 3rd overall in the entire league, both teams were very evenly matched up. Our boys went down trying and they never gave up, even after an empty netter with 90 seconds left and able to bring the score to make the one goal game with 45 seconds left, it just wasn't in the cards for them this year.
All in all it was a great series, and in the process, I got to visit with good friends in PA and have a wonderful weekend in the process. And hey there's always next year right?

Let me tell you why "I HATE PLAYOFF HOCKEY"
Current mood:stressed
Ok 1st and formost. I think the stress is just gonna kill me!!! Ok, not really but it certainly feels that way.
How do I survive. We are up 3-2 in the series, and the next game is friday night at home in Bridgeport. Ok, so no a single game that has been played in the series has been a home win. SO....If we follow those rules. The tiger's will lose on friday and win on saturday in Wilkes-Barre. Ok, I just don't think I can handle that. Make it all the way to game 7.
My Pom-Pons are gonna be destroyed by the end of the series. Theres not much left of them now. I've been chewing on them for 3 days now. (Wow doesn't that just sound yummy)
All this stressing out over this little team. But it's my team. My boys, that I cheer for year after year. Dedicate my heart and soul to this AHL hockey team, that we all know and love so much.
I want them to win. We need them to win. It's such a good experience for all of these kid's (yes they are kids the average age is like 23) Playoff experience for them, so when the Isles win the Stanley Cup (OMG, I reallly dont' think i'm gonna do well with that one) Most of the team that year will have had this experience to look back on.
So I say now, and say loud and proud.
LET'S GO TIGER'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WBS Road Trip...Part Duex
Current mood:cheerful
Ok, so the road trip on last friday didn't go so well, but hey, it was somehting that I wanted to do. I drove 170 miles each way to watch, "our boys" lose Ok at that point they really weren't our boys, they were I don't know. Player's they were digging up from JR'S (ok they were getting desperate) But with 12 call ups to the Island what's a team to do. It was so bad, by the end of the game I was cheering for the winning team, yes that would be the opposing team, no the Tiger's But, it was fun, got to see some friends I hadn't seen in a while and it was a little change of pace. Today's trip was a little bit better 1st the Drive down was better, I had 2 passengers in the car with me, so that was good, didn't have to do it by myself. 2nd Got to eat dinner at Red Robin (yummy California Chicken Sandwich) with a group of good friends again. And finally the clincher of the evening The sound tiger's won game 2. Ok, so we are up 2 games, but I'm not getting my hopes up just yet. The last time these two teams met in the playoffs, BST won the 1st 3 games and WBS won the last 4, so anything can happen. I'm not counting my chicken's before they hatch (hey we've already got one chicken don't we cock-a-doodle-doo)

I Happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Current mood:happy

Ok so I just have to say, I'm so happy. WOOHOO, since we didn't make the playoff's last year, and this year, buy the skin of our teeth. So, that's a good thing. Once we get all of our guys back from the Island, we are gonna be hard to beat. I just can't wait for Playoffs. And on another note of Happiness, I got all of my MaryKay products in the mail today. This huge box of stuff, came in. It's like a makeup junkies dream...oh yeah, that would be me. I was like a little kid in a candy shop or Jessica Simpson, at a Sephora Sale. So that makes me happy for the moment. Hey at least something does.

Random Hockey Thoughts.
Current mood:cheerful
Ok, so it's getting down to the wire, and GOK what's gonna happen. Tiger's still haven't clinched a playoff space with only 3 games to go, Hello, when's it gonna happen.
Hey it might not ever happen, but we got 2 points tongiht with a win against Hartford, so that's a start. All I can say is that Norfolk better beat, Bingo, this week twice. With only 4 games that they play, and they've won the last 4, anything is possible. If they win the last 4 and we lose the last 3, they make it and we don't a win against portland tommorrow would do it for us. Hey I already payed for the damn playoff tickets. But also 2 overtime loses would do it as well, because we only need 2 points to clinch. I don't want it to have to come down to that, but....
And on another note. Just home from the Islander's/Cap's game, and our little soundtiger team (ok so they're Islander rookies) were able to shut down, Alex the Great, Ovechkin not so impressed by him tonight, but I think our little Tiger's did a good job tonight. And one good thing, it only took to game 76 and his 61st game of the season, but RICK DiPIETRO, got his 1st shutout of the season. WOOHOO, another nod to another Tiger, so was happy for him for that. He got the 1st star of the game, and there was a cute little hip check between him and Bates at the end of the game. WOOHOO, way to go Ricky
Ok, so that was my hockey rambling for today, don't worry, I'm sure there will be more to bitch about tommorrow...It is another day.

Happier Now.....
Current mood:cheerful
Ok, so I'm a little bit happier now. And it only took me like an hour to do. So WOOHOO. I got my 1st MaryKay order in. It's placed and on the way to me and should be in my hands by April 17, 2006. So that's a good thing. And today, I sold my very 1st products, so that just makes me a happy camper.
This is going to be a MaryKay weekend, Saturday, is a training day and Sunday is my 1st show. We have a booth at the WEBE108 Kidsfest, and I'm working from 230-4pm, so while, everyone is in Portland watching sthe BST beat up on some Pirates, I will be selling some makeup.
Ok, so it's gonna be a strange weekend. 1/2 Makeup and 1/2 Hockey, (wow that is a strange combo isn't it) We are going to the Islander's/Capitals game on Saturday night at the Coliseum, not the game means anything to either team, but it should be intersting, to see these to teams, still playing their heatrs out for no reason at all. I really admire them, they are playing like it's the 1st day of the season(not the last) and this is gonna be the year they make it all the way.
It should still be a fun game on Saturday night. Gonna get to see Alexandre Ovechkin, play in his rookie year, ok so far this year, got to see the big Pheonom's Crosby. (Damn you Sidney Crosby, DAMN YOU!! I say), and now we get to see Alex. So like I said it should be a fun weekend. Full of surprises and hockey and makeup. I'll keep you all posted.

I posted some pix hope everyone liked them, I have them all if you want to see them, I will send you the link.

If you've been Tagged. Here's Six Weird Things/Habit's
Current mood:bouncy
So..the rules are, once you've been tagged, you have to write a blog with "Six Weird Things/Habits" about yourself. In the end, you need to choose the 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "You Are Tagged!" in their comments...and tell them to read yours.
Don't just leave a comment here...start a whole new blog on your page! :)
1. I'm obsessed with Knitting!!
2. I like sports, Football, (Miami Dolphin's) Hockey, (Islander's, Bridgeport Soundtiger's) Baseball (Yankee's)....OBSESS MUCH!!!!
3. I have a addiction to Shoes, and Purses. and Love to shop
4. I'm a little narcissitic...ok, a lot "I LOVE ME" does this make me a bad person.
5. I honestly have a fear that I'm going to die alone with my cat's knitting. (don't laugh it's true, I really believe this)
6. I have a bad case of "ADD" you can't tell me to do too many things at once, i get too confused, and my little brain, can't handle it all at once.
Ok, this is me in a nutshell, a little sad, a little scary, and a little crazy, but that's just why everyone love's me....right!

10 days of vacation....
Current mood:contemplative
And nothing to do......
Ok, so the one thing that I hate about my job is, you have to pick your vacation in November for the next year, so you have to plan possilbly a year and 1/2 in advance.
Now, I was suppose to go to London with my father to take him on his birthday, but mom's sick and can't leave her alone, this is the problem with being an only child.
Now I have 11 days off starting Friday March 10 and don't have to be back to work to wed Mar 22....UGGGHHH.
What's a girl to do, hey at least I would have some hockey games to go to, but the boys are out of town on the road for the month of march and they aren't going to be home till March 29, even the isle's are away. So this is my dilema.

Knitting Top 10.
TOP 10
Reasons Why Knitters
Have Extra Skeins in their Stash
1. Skeins are like potato chips; you can't have just one.

2. They told their spouse that they use it to stuff their pillows.

3. The pattern went out of style before the knitting began.

4. If knitters were reduced to only one skein, their lives would unravel.

5. Bought it for the boyfriend sweater and decided against chancing the curse.

6. Two words: garage sale

7. It's on sale, and it's cashmere. It'd be insane not to get it.

8. They like the yarn, they like the color, there's got to be a pattern somewhere for it, right?

9. They went on a diet and didn't need as much yarn to make the sweater after all.

Top reason: Unbridled yarn lust. If you don't understand, you're not a real yarn

Ok, so broke down and finally decided to buy it. After Long deliberation, the jersey he is wearing in this picture is going to be mine.....all....mine. I know it took me long enough to decide, but hey it's a big purchase and I didn't want buyers remorse.

Ok Small Snafu in the Knitting olympics. My original project had to be put on hold. Why you ask? I now have an emergency baby blanket to SATURDAY!!!!!!!!!!! UGGHHHHH. Ok, so that only now gives me 4 days. So I better get my fingers a cracking and moving quickly.
So if you see the picture above. This is what I'm now knitting. Ok, so it's not as challenging as the sweater....Which BTW is more than 1/2 finished.
So wish me luck and let the games begin....AGAIN!
On top of it all, had to work till 10pm tonight, to "HELP OUT" with what I have no idea. I took 2 phone calls in 2 hours so, one good thing I got about 20 rows off the blanket done.

SSDD....AKA General Ramblings.
Current mood:indifferent
Ok, it's Saturday night, and after a very uneventful Bridgeport Soundtiger Hockey game, the highlight of the game was when a game puck came over the glass and hit my foot, so one plus of the evening. Souveneir!!! Tigers lost 5-2 a little can we say deja vu...last night. Same score. Even though we lost (which they kinda deserved, they didn't play very well. defense didn't show up a few times, and the goalie was seaching for help and just didn't get it a few times, there where some good things they did, I'm not say all hope is totally lost just yet, and no not giving up on them, just think tonights game, wasn't one of their best efforts.
So now the game is over and here I sit typing away on my computer....What's wrong with this picture. I'm young, single and full of life so why am I here? Why am I about to start knitting and watching TV (Ok I didn't want to say it, but you know what I'm watching, have Thursday and Friday to catch up on). Also, have W-F of AMC to watch so can do that as well. Has my life become so routine, that this is all I know how to do anymore? Again I ask you WHY? It's really a vicious circle. Work, Knit, Home, Hockey, Work, Knit Home Hockey....and on and on, soon hockey season will be over and Hockey will be replaced with Baseball. and then the cycle becomes, Work, Knit, Home, Baseball, Work, Knit, Home, Baseball.
Somehow, I need to break this cycle, need to change things around, need something different to do!!!!! UGGGHHH!!!! Any Suggestions?

Why Valentine's Day Sucks when you're Single.
Current mood:melancholy

But really, It's a tough thing, everyone wants to wish you "Happy Valentine's Day" Happy? Happy for what reason?
I'm working till 8pm going home gonna knit and watch t.v. wow, excting. I don't want to sound mad or bitter, I just to want to be that girl that just can't deal with it anymore. Single so long, that it's just another day....but it's not just another day. Not for me. Someday, it will be a good day for me again, but right now it's just not. I am thankful for all my friends that love me, and my family (that probably only tolerates me).
So right now, I'm just mad at February 14th, I don't hate it yet, just a little upset with it. Hopefully it will be off my shit list soon enough.

Knitting Olympics.
Current mood:jubilant

Ok, so this is what I'm going to make, and here are the rules.
Eligibility: Any knitter who, embracing the "Citius, Alitius Fortius" ideal, would like to challenge themselves while embracing the Olympic spirit, and is just whacked enough to play along with me. Concept: You must cast on a project during the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics (Feb 10)- and finish before the Olympic flame goes out (Feb 26). That's 16 days.
1. The project must be a challenge for you to complete in 16 days.
2. There are no rules about what a challenge would be. Like the real Olympics, there are many areas to compete in. If you are a new knitter, then a garter stitch baby sweater might do...If you are experienced, well. I've already considered Torino. Use your own conscience.
3. While this is intended to be somewhat difficult (like the Olympics) it is not intended to ruin your life. Don't set yourself up for failure. (Olympic athletes may cry, but they do not whine pitifully, sob and threaten members of their family with pointed sticks because they haven't slept in five days. ) This is intended to (like the Olympics) require some measure of sacrifice, and be difficult, but it should be possible to attain.
4. No casting on before the flame is lit.
5. Finish before the flame goes out.
6. You may swatch before the games. (I consider this "training.")
Medals? The Knitting Olympics has only a gold medal. (There is only do- or do not.) Finishers get a gold medal button for their blog, their name entered into a draw for a chance at a prize from me, and the joy of knowing that they are an Olympic level knitter, no matter how experienced they are. You are only competing against yourself. (Well. And the Olympic schedule.) Who's in? If you're just crazy enough itching to be part of the Knitting Winter Olympics, leave a comment (or send an email) telling me who you are, what you're knitting and a link, if you have one. I'll list you in the sidebar. Consider carefully. Done right, this will suck up 16 days of your life and be an epic work. So, let's just hope I finish in time. So everyone will see me knitting, not that you don't anyway. So, let the games begin!!!

SuperBowl Sunday....Now What to Do.
Current mood:confused
Ok, so it's superbowl sunday, and I'm gonna watch the game, but I don't really care who wins, or loses. I know thats a bad thing, but it's true. My team is long been out of it. And really not even close...there's always next year. But ususally I will root for the AFC, but don't really want Pitt to Win, So maybe root for the NFC, but don't care if the Seahawks win. It would be good for them, because they've never won before. So do you see my dilema? I think the most excitment, that I have is watching the commercials.
Well, that's about all for the superbowl...only time will tell.
We had a little bit of treat last night. While watching the Bridgeport Soundtigers play the Providence Bruins. We had in Goal #30 Garth Snow. He was down, 1 game for reconditioning. I don't know if that was a good thing or a bad thing, it's kinda a double edge sword. 1, that means. He's better and going to go back to the Island, so we'll get Dubie back but 2, we lose Rudy...That' just makes me sad. (Excuse Me, Cody have you meet Vikki yet (thanks Anne)) Rudy...Rudy...Rudy!!! Again, another dilema. Help....My little brain, can't take all this pressure, I think it's gonna explode....eeeewwww, blonde hair and brains everywhere. (wow that's an oxymoron isn't it)
But still, after the game last night. We all went to Roberto's for a drink or 2. Had fun. Not as much fun as the AB&G but still it was a good time. Next time Knicker's....Well maybe next sunday if everyone comes up from WB.

That's really all I can say.
Glad they won tonight. It was a great game, and we had amazing seats. On the glass 1/2 way between, the goal and the blue line. And hey we made tv a couple of times.
Can't believe they pulled it off, but then again, they played the Caps' and they are in worse shape than we are. And Ovechkin didn't play. He was scratched. So I think that help. Still trying to figure out one thing the stupid ref called. How do you call Icing on the Goalie

Not Dying anymore.....
Current mood:sick
Ok, so I wasn't really dying to begin with....Just felt that way. Have strep throat, and if anyone has ever had it's not very pleasant. It's kicks the shit out of you for about 3 days. I hate it. Can't breathe can't talk, can't swallow...and the dumb ENT won't take out my tonsils....hello, twice a year sometimes 3, and they won't do it, they say because of my age (they've been saying that since i was about 22, that's when it really got bad)it's not severe enough of a case to do. It's risky surgey, and they say just to deal.
Just starting to feel better now, coming back from the dead. feeling human again, still feel weak, and yucky, but better than friday....but still not quite right...but was i ever.
Didn't even go to the hockey game...yes that's how sick I was. No hockey game. stayed home I watched it on B-2 it's actually not that bad. Would've rather been threre, but what can you do, get everyone else sick. I think they would all kill me. I'm not contagious anymore...thank god for antibiotics...woohoo, but still watched the game in the privacy of my own office. Oh and BTW, Hockey on's easier to knit, and watch. so I did.
Hope everyone had a good weekend, can't wait for Tuesday. Islander's/Cap's game in NY. Let's go Islander's Front row, on the glass, in right at the tunnel where the guy's come on and off the ice.

Yet another weekend of Fun and Debauchery...this is becoming a habit, isn't it.
Current mood:silly
It started out, as a simple hockey weekend away. One night in the fabulous city of Wilkes-Barre, PA woohoo, simple easy to the point. We set out to leave for the WB on Saturday morning around 10am, again, ok no problems there, and 2 1/2 hours later we arrive at our destination, still ok. We were suppose to go to the booster club event for both teams, ours, and theirs, for pizza, but dawn wasn't feeling well and didn't want pizza, so she and i went to red robin for dinner and lori went to the get together....again, still ok.
Game time is here. Get ready and go. Let's go tigers. and yes they won. 7-0 shut out. woohoo, can't believe they did it, again, beating WBS is no small task, especially for our team, the only one in the league to beat them more than once, we've now done it 3 times. All in all it was a good game, Got to see the "Chiodo Dragon" play, which was kinda excting, very happy about that.
Games, over, now on to the Arena Bar&Grill, it's a local haunt and fans and players go to after all the games. We sit, we wait, the place is packed. Finally get a table and our "Waiter" Chuck comes over (wait shouldn't use that word to loosely hehehe) he's nice enough brings drinks and food, got, a chicken sandwich, and a bud light, again, nothing out of the ordinary there. So here we all sit, 6 of us. Dawn, Lori, Siena, Erin, Lisa and Me, having fun, eating, drinking, laughing, and having a fun night, all of the sudden (here's where the real fun begins) The owner of the bar comes over, and I think she tries to "pimp" me out, in fact, I know she tries to "pimp" me out. To our ever faithful waiter, she tried and tried, told me a little sob story, and ok, i agreed to "chat" with him, again, using that term loosely. So we "chatted" and talked a little and realize, what she did wasn't so bad, we've go alot in common, and start to "hit" it off.....more fun begins, let's just say we had a fun evening,.....before, anything starts running though you dirtylittle we didn't do "anything" but still all in all it was a "fun" night. I will know always have fond memories of Wilkes-Barre, the Arena Bar&Grill and all the new friends that I made over the weekend.

Signs of a knitting Addiction......
Current mood:silly
Signs of knitting addiction, and here they are:

1. Do you lose time from work due to knitting?
Um, no! Of course not! Who would do that? (You're not counting knitting blogstalking or looking up patterns or yarn online, right?)

2. Is knitting making your home life unhappy?
Unhappy? Definitely not. Now, yes...there's yarn everywhere

3. Is knitting affecting your reputation?
I have to admit I might just have a reputation as a knitter.

4. Have you gotten into financial difficulties as a result of knitting?
Let's see. Needles, knitting basket, silk yarn, novelty yarn, wool yarn, new bamboo needles, and goodies, goodies, goodies. Moving on.

5. Does your knitting make you careless of your family's welfare?
I think I did let the cat see the bottom of his food dish a couple of times. And when was the last time I really cleaned the litter? Count this as a 'maybe'.

6. Has your ambition decreased since knitting?
No way. I aspire to bigger and better projects all the time!
Oh - does this not mean knitting ambitions?

7. Do you crave knitting at a definite time daily?
One time every day? Nope. Now, several times - yes. In the morning, in the afternoon, after dinner. Almost all the time. The only time I don't crave it lately is when I have a deadline.
8. Do you want to knit the next morning?
Of course - I might not have finished it the night before!

9. Does knitting cause you to have difficulty in sleeping?
At least once that I remember. It was the night when I realised that I'd done something wrong in the baby blanket AGAIN and figured it out as I was falling asleep.

10. Has your efficiency decreased since knitting?
See above re: blogstalking etc.

11. Do you knit to escape from worries or trouble?
I live in a wonderful land of yarn and needles and patterns and blogs. What's to escape?

12. Do you knit alone?
Almost exclusively. I also knit at work, at my discussion group, in waiting rooms, on planes, and once, on the highway (gotta love long car trips) I've abandoned my purse, and carry my wallet in my knitting tote with me everywhere instead.

13. Have you ever had a complete loss of memory as a result of knitting?
I'm sorry - what?

14. Has your physician ever treated you for knitting?
So far... No. Will keep you posted.

15. Do you knit to build up your self-confidence?
You bet. Look! Look what I can do! I didn't think I could do this, but it worked out and it's magic and don't I look self-confidant now!

16. Have you ever been to a hospital or institution on account of knitting?
Does A.C. Moore count as an institution? Is Michaels rehab?

So there you have it. I'm fine. Really.

Now, where are my needles?...

2 games 2 days bound 2 win at least one.
Current mood:okay
Ok, so Sunday, the road trip, up to Lowell MA, in the storm of all storms (ok not really but it was still kinda yucky) So we leave the house at 12n and in the car, the roads by then actually weren't as bad as I thought they were gonna be, the only really bad place were the city streets and I-84 past manchester. So 3pm and we get to Lowell, go in just in time to see warm ups, the game didn't start out looking so good, we were up and down the entire time, but after a couple of bonehead moves, we make it to overtime and win. WooHoo , so no game over go outside (in 10degrees) get in the car and go home...this is where all the fun begins, all I can say is don't get 3 horney women in a car....the conversation turns real quick if you can think about it....we probably mentioned it or talked about it in detail. hehehe. So all in all it was a good trip.
Today....Not so much, today started out, kinda the same way and just ended not in the same way. Soundtiger lose very sad...not happy. Again, a couple of dumb plays and some bad penalty's but what' ya gonna do. There's still hope alive for the play off's it's actully still early in the season, stil have Feb/Mar/April left 36 games (I think...something like that)
Don't get another hockey game till 28Jan05, but next (well, I don't other people do just not me
Well back to work tommorrow, 3 day weekends are nice but go by to damn quick. At least I can sleep in. Don't have to be to work till 11am WooHoo on that too.

Fun and Exciting Saturday Night.
Current mood:bored
Ok, I don't know if I would use those 2 words together to describe saturday night. Probably more like dull and boring, the highlight of the evening was going to borders in fairfield, bought a book about knitting, the yarn harlot (imagine that) and the February Cosmo, ooohhh the big cover article was new ways to keep an Orgasm lasting longer and better, hey but had to buy it anyway, not like I'm ever gonna use that article anytime soon, but there's always wishfull thinking...hey a girl can dream can't she.
That's about all for saturday night. Going to Lowell tommorrow...well really today, sad that they lost last night, but there's always tommorrow so all I can say for that is "LET'S GO TIGERS"

The Rules of Knitting and Dating
Current mood:silly
Don't knit your boyfriend a sweater, it's bad luck, guarenteed, to break up if you do.
Don't wear itchy fabric's on a 1st date. (don't use fun fur either it might make him sneeze and make him think he's allergic to you.)
Don't take you knitting on a 1st date (well duh, then he'll think you're bored with him)
DO!! take you knitting on a 1st date (if it's a speed dating event, if the guy is boring you have something to do)
Don't let dating interfere with your knitting. (offer to watch a game with him and score for both of you.)
Invest in a handsfree headset (already have one, it's the best talking on the phone and knitting at the same time)
Make sure you needles are safely stored away. (ouch keep them off the couch or out of bed)

What a day......
Current mood:aggravated
Ok can't really explain how bad it was but gonna try. It started out tuesday night with a phone call at work from my father, Mom, can't walk, don't worry he say's she'll be ok, we don't know what's wrong but the dr said not to worry, bring her in to the offince in the morning. So...that's what we do. But unfortunatly can't just bring her in...she can't walk, so we spend the entire morning trying to find a wheel chair to bring her in, and no, not gonna happen, no one in the state has a wheelchair to rent, finally after about 30 phone calls and 4 hours later, we find one. A small new little surgical supply store in new haven, close to the woodbridge line. So go pick up the chair bring it home, get her to the dr's office...which btw was not real fun, and come to find out she has 2 compressed disc's in her back, which are both pinching on the siatica nerve, so really she can't walk, now she has to go to the dr every day for 2 weeks and he's gonna try to fix it, so this is gonna be a fun couple of weeks, so if i decide i want to try to kill myself or someone else, somebody please stop me. The only good thing that came out of today was I got to go to a midweek hockey game wednesday night. woohoo, tigers' are still unbeaten in regulation for now 9 straight games. woohoo, so we get another point and a little bit closer to a better season. hopefully this will continue. Can't wait to the weekend, going to the game on sunday in lowell, oohhh massachusetts, can't wait, Let's go tigers.

I'm so mad Can't believe it. I can get out of work any night close to the time I'm suppose to, but tonight.....UMM NO!! Didn't happen. The reason for that is because 3 people didn't do their job, so 3 more people had to stay and finish. The reason it makes me mad is because, tonight, I was going to try for a weekday game. Had the ticket (thank you Lori!!) and decieded I'd try to make it close to the end of the 2nd instead of the begining of the 3rd. Well the only good thing, almost everything that happend at the game happend in the 3rd. A total of 4 goals and a shoot out. and BST won WOOHOO So for a bad night. At least it finished up well. Can't wait till tommorrow, going to Islander/Carolina Game on the island. So All I can say is Let's go Tigers....sorry, mean Islanders. No I think I was right the 1st time.

OK, so my new year didn't actually start off with a bang, it actually just ...... I don't know. New Years eve was a good night, spent it with some wonderful people and had alot of fun.

Since last year kinda just sucked more than anything that's ever sucked before, we can only hope 2006 is going to be a better year than last.
The year was full of up's and down's highs and lows, still upset and morning a relationship that really should have been over long before it was. It was my 1st year as a single girl in 10years (now in my 30's and starting to show my age.....ok I WANT BOTOX), ok how do you deal, how do you get back into the swing of things, I know it's like riding a bicycle but come on it's been 10 years, so your bound to be a little rusty.

In a nutshell this is 2005 for me.
Knitting.....Hockey....1 date.....More Hockey

Knitting.....Hockey....1 date...More Hockey....AHL Hockey All-Star Games

Knitting....Hockey....No dates....More Hockey

Knitting....Hockey....2 dates and a "break up".....More Hockey....Wait something different....Baseball Starts

Knitting....Baseball....No Dates...More Baseball

Knitting.....Baseball....No Dates...More Baseball

Knitting.....Baseball....No Dates...More Baseball

Knitting....Baseball....No Dates...A Birthday...More Baseball

Knitting.....Baseball....No Dates...More Baseball....Wait...New...Football

Knitting....Baseball....Football....No Dates....More Football....Wait...Hockey's Back

Knitting.....Football..Hockey..1 date....More Football...More Hockey

Knitting....Football..Hockey..No Dates....More Football...More Hockey

All in all the year kinda sucked. If this is what I have to look forward to for 2006, I might just die....well not actually. Ok, so I have a few good friends and a family that loves me, but thats just not cutting it for me. I want more out of life, I want someone that will love me for me, baseball, football, hockey and all my yarn, is that too much to ask for. UMMM NO I really don't think it is.

And now for my resoultions.
To be happy what ever life brings me and to make the best out of everything that comes my way. When you get Lemons, make lemonade right? I know this is a general statment, bur really this is what I need to do, this is how I need to approach things.

Happy New Year.
Current mood:hopeful
The only thing I can hope for 2006 is that it's going to be a better year than 2005 was. 2005 was a year of up's and down's for me. In all sense's of the word, we were all over the map from work, to home, to love and friendship. Even all of my favorite's were up and down. Like I said, we can only hope for a good 2006
But one good thing, had a good night last night. It was a fun night, 1st was hockey game. And the Tiger's Won, 2nd we all went to Lori's house after the game, we had dinner and dessert, (everything was yummy!!). We had "Christmas" last night. That was great, got way too much stuff, from everyone and am greatful for that. All in all it was a fun night. Today was kinda unproductive day, just stayed at home and watched the last regular season football game, and one good thing. The DOLPHINS won. So so happy for that. They beat the Pat's in NE the 1st time since 2000. woohoo.

Another Night of Fun and Debauchery.
Current mood:artistic
Ok, so all I can say there was a "sharpie" involved and it was all Lisa's Fault, and I'm still marked all up covered with permanent magic marker.....and it's in the most unusal spot. So use your imagination. All I can say is I got a John Valby autograph, but don't worry there's pix out there floating around. they'll be posted on the internet soon enough.
Anyway. all in all it was a fun night. Got to hear a great comedy set from the Prince of Porn himself. The chrismas show is the best for any of you that have never seen him All I can say is you really need to be prepread for it, because he holds nothing back....I mean Nothing!!!!!. If you can think of it, he'll sing it, or chant it or scream it or do what ever it is he does. We got there early and got a good place to stand and watch the show. so another good thing. And the best thing of if all, I didn't run into "anyone" so, that made me happy, i was worried about it all day, actually had a huge major breakdown in the car on the way home. Heard a song on the radio and off I went. So that was my friday. Hope everyone else's was good. It's now saturday night and were waiting for santa to arrive 40 mins to midnight and counting.

Merry Christmas all and to all a good night.

I don't think I can make it another day. I ususally go work for 10 hours, sit tethered to my phone and take about 75 phone calls a day. Today. I took 20, yes 20 calls over the course of 10 hours. Looked at my log and was sitting there not doing anything for like 7 hours. and no I can't go anywhere can only get up and move around on breaks and lunch. so i'm stuck. I was knitting all day, that's what i did, so the up side to that, I got paid to knit....woohoo. Also, played some games, read some emails, wrote some emails and yes this took up 7hours of my day. and still have to go back and do it all tommorrow. someone wish me luck.

Ok here it is. "I FOUND MY VEST" yes the one in the picture. After about 2 weeks of non-stop shopping, in stores, on line and anywhere else you can think of I found it. It's red it's down and its warm. Happy Happy Joy Joy. Really you don't understand how happy this makes me. I figured. Hey I like the way it looks in the avatar pix and figured, you know that's actually a good thing for me. I hate to wear a coat, even when i'm freezing. I hate it in the car while driving, it's big and bulky, so this could solve many problems all at once. WooHoo. I know, it's the little things in life that make me happy. So I figure I would just let everyone else know. I got it. I'm sure all of you can sleep at night now knowing this.

Sunday School Reunion....Yes you read that right.
Current mood:excited
Saturday I went to a sunday school reunion. It was a lot of fun, I saw people there, that I haven't seen in probably 20 years for sure.
I was great to reconnect with old friends, to see whats up with life and how everyones changed, some have and some look exactly the same when we did at age 13 (wow that's kinda scary).
Hopefully now we can stay in touch, and redevelope friendships that haven't been around in quite some time.

Letter To Santa.........
Current mood:silly

Try it this is what I got. Too funny.

Santa Claus
North Pole, Earth

Dear Santa,

I have been a good girl.
It really wasn't my fault what happened at dawn's Office party. It was lisa who spiked the punch with too much jack daniels. I can't help it if I drank 31 glasses. It was so good---smelled and tasted just like perfume.
I thought it was funny when I put lori's shoes on my head and danced the hokey pokey on the sofa while singing `lovin that you want'. I didn't mean to break dawn's cd player and don't know why dawn would accuse me of murder.
I don't remember calling kevin's wife a smart sheep---even though she looked like one with green eye shadow and pink lipstick!
And when I threw up on lisa's husband's arm, it was only because I ate too much of that cookie.
After all that fun, I admit I was a little tired. So I fell asleep on my way home and drove my car through my neighbor's bedroom. I don't think that was any reason for my neighbor to call me a small cat and have me arrested for robery!
So, I sit in my jail cell on Christmas Eve, all hot and cold. And I'm really not to blame for any of this stupid stuff. Please bring me what I want the most---bail money!
Sincerely and quickly yours,
vikki (Really a nice girl!)
P.S. It's only 8 bucks!

Lions, Tigers and Beers...Oh sorry, I mean Bears...OH MY
Current mood:tired
Oh, It was a fun filled weekend in Hershey. Saw a Lion (giant stuffed mascot) saw some Tigers (hello hockey team, as in bridgeport) saw some Bears (again other hockey team, and yes don't forget about CoCo, the Mascot, he was cute, he had a poocollie) and saw some Beer (probably don't want to look at any again, any time soon or any alcohol Jack Daniels is fun for a while, but like gretchen wilson says about being all jacked up, she's right....ugghhhhhh)

All in all it was a good weekend. We stated off early saturday monring, it would have been earlier, but I lost my keys and the mad libs that I bought...damn mad libs, so we didn't leave untill about 730 from lori's house. should have been 7 but oopps, my bad, has anyone actually known me to be on time for something, so why start now. The drive out was good, got a little lost....btw if you try to drive over the Tapanzee bridge and want to stay on 287w you actually have to get off 287w and get back on it, because 287w turns into 87 N. Who was the genius that thought that up...well anyway, we finally made it there after about a 30 minute detour....ooops again, my bad. Got into hershey wen't to Hershey park, yes it was open, why I don't know, but it was cute, they had the little kiddy rides open and santa was there and they had a few other little things to do, so we ate lunch and shopped around and yes, i bought so much chocolate, I don't know what to do with. After that we went to the back to the hotel to get to the game for 5:30 it was a boyd's bear giveaway day (i got a new friend his name is Sam, and he really likes cookies, well that's what his tag says), but the game was good, they tigers lost, but Dubie stopped 2 penalty shots, but it still didn't help us that much.....again anyway, still going, after the game, we deciede to go to a little neighborhood bar/restaurant called Shakey's (that's where we saw all the beer's....uugghhh), it was a memorable experience, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Got home about I don't know what time, because none of us could function well enough to tell time.

Somehow, we got up the next moring, all hung over and miserable, still unable to function, we go to Chocolate world, and take the little motorized tram chocolate tour twice, the 1st time because we wanted to the 2nd because, we just couldn't bring ourselves to get off the ride., it was dark and peacful, a lttile loud but still we weren't moving much.

After that we went to the Gift shop....oh no not that, we shopped for chocolate, had something to drink, (hot chocolate, and water) and all began to feel a little more human again. Then went to the Hershey Museum, which was very interesting, learned alot, was well worth the $7 entrance fee. So still haveing one more game to go to and a 5 hour drive home, and still, not feeling quite right, we go to dinner and then to the game...which they lost, yet 4 in a row

I was the lucky driver home, made it in about 3 1/2 hours did good, didn't take the stupid route home, came straight home rt 78, to the jersey pike to 95 home yeah!!! we made it, got home after midnight, but it was worth every moment of the trip, probably, not anything i'm going to forget anytime soon.

What type of hockey player are you?
You just don't care, you will punish your opponent untill they can not move. You have no problem throwing down the gloves. You will push a guy through the glass, you will shove him into the ice. Your only mission is to inflict as much pain on your enemy as possible.

Current mood:working
Ok so back to work after a couple of awful days off, but hey we got a win on the game last night so that was at least a plus. wow again the most exciting thing in life, the local minor league hockey team wins it's last home game , in front of a crowd of about 800 people. woohoo
Again always something i can figure out to bitch about, but for now, not so much. Going to the gym after work, going to work off some frustration from the weekend....ugghhhhhhhhhhhhhh then go home and knit to work off just a little more frustration, that might help or night.
Decided to knit some leg warmers for 80's night saturday if i go to the game if not will have them for winter, they'll still serve a bit of purpose wow keeping legs warm (imagine that).
Well anyway, it's thursday, go home and watch the O.C. and Reunion and figure out who killed Sam, really thought it was going to be her from the begining, but thought it was too obvious to be her, but then they went and shocked me anyway.

I hate my life!!!
Current mood:bitchy
Ok no really, I do. Have 2 days off from work and get to do nothing. But hey I finished my sweater (which, I don't like how it fits...figures) also started a new scarf and hat for winter. Orange and Teal, imagine that, Going to hockey game tonight, so that should be fun.
Maybe something good might come out of that.

Ok enough bitchin' for now. I'm sure I can think of more to bitch about later.

It's gonna be a fun filled weekend, Hockey and Football, wow what fun, ok you know you need a life when the excitment of the weekend is 2 hockey games (up close and personal) and a miami dolphins televised game. woohoo. since we don't get to many of those anymore, since the team is in the crapper. ugghh. what else can i say about that. but hey i love them, they're my team,and always will be. other than that, a trip to the gym and possibly the shoe store to find those elusive boots. (hopefully sometime before winter is over hahaha.
