A little slippery out

Today we had the first real snowfall of winter. I woke up this morning and looked out the window and everything was covered in a layer of white. I am not a fan of snow, nor am I a fan of this particular cold season, but there is something about an expanse of untouched white snow that is beautiful. Snow reminds me of Christmas, which will be here sooner than we think. Luckily I have most of my Christmas shopping finished. I am only waiting on one package for Jordan to arrive in the mail. Now I need to buy some wrapping paper!

Nancy and I have tickets to Canadian Stars On Ice for the Hamilton show in April 2007. I’m very excited as I haven’t been to a show since CSOI in 2005. Plus Marie-France Dubreuil & Patrice Lauzon and Joannie Rochette are now a part of the cast! It’s quite a few months away, but I can’t wait. 🙂

Oh, funny incident. Jordan drove me home this morning before work and as we pulled up to the building we saw this kid slip on the icy pavement and fall down. I kinda laughed and said something along the lines, “Wait til I get out. That will be me!” Sure enough, as I walked behind the truck — WHOOSH — slipped and landed right on my butt! Jordan jumps out of the truck, “Are you okay? All of a sudden you disappeared!” ROFL Oh man, it didn’t hurt too much, but it was pretty funny.

Olympic gush-fest

Might be going out for frappuccino’s before work with Laney but only if it’s not freezing rain. It’s snowing but I can’t tell if it’s freezing rain…

Oh the Olympics. Such fun to watch. I hate how CBC shows bits of skating here and there so my tape is full of commercials and hockey and curling and luge and skiing, etc, rather than just the skating. Much congratulations to Xue Shen & Hongbo Zhao for making me close to tears during their long program comeback…it was absolutely beautiful! Aljona Savchenko & Robin Szolkowy also had a great placement (love their programs to death), and I’m very proud of Jessica Dubé & Bryce Davison placing 10th at their first Olympics! I’m also really impressed with Dan Zhang getting up after that horrific fall on their quad throw attempt to continue the program. Looked like it was reallyyyyy painful. Although I’m still not sure if I would have placed them on the podium rather than a clean Pang & Tong…*ponders*

As for the men, today they skate their long programs and I’m rooting for Jeff Buttle and Emanuel Sandhu to pull through and make Canada proud. Ice Dancing compulsories start tomorrow, woohoo! Let’s go, ice dancers! I have way too many teams I’m cheering for: Marie-France Dubreuil & Patrice Lauzon, Albena Denkova & Maxim Staviyski, Margarita Drobiazko & Povilas Vanagas, Oksana Domnina & Maxim Shabalin, Elena Grushina & Ruslan Goncharov, Federica Faiella & Massimo Scali — ICE DANCE RULES! heheheh 😀

Hrm. Maybe I should get in the shower in case we do go out.

I want to thank you guys for being persistant with your comments: Zenith, Stacey, Noelle, Sam, Sebra. I do appreciate each and every one of them, even though it takes me forever to reply. 🙂
