Right, I went into my bathroom, and usually I check the floor, behind the door, on the counter and in the corners for spiders (Kelowna has a lot of spiders, and they really seem to like my bathroom--I've come to terms with brushing my teeth and co while a spider sits in the corner behind my toilet (about ... three feet away from me?) but I still check and keep an eye on it) and this one time I didn't, and I just see, out of the corner of my eye, that there is a huge, black shadow right above my toilet... so I back the fuck away from there, get outside and try not to hyperventilate--the spider was at least as big as a toonie, which is way bigger than a two-euro coin, and super gross... Tanya got rid of it for me.
And here's my last project, the cannibalize & resurrect books:
Yep, we're doing a lot of work right now--I wrote two pieces for our lit magazine, but they're too personal to post here, sorry guys :)
I've also written a piece on how I feel now that there's only 33 days left till my parents come, but I haven't typed that up yet, sorry.
Our children's books are due by the end of the week--I still have to take photographs of my illustrations so that I can 'fuse' it together,
Today we finally managed to watch (technology was against us last class) the mini documentary "Caine's Arcade" and yeah... it was nice, even though I was working through most of it.
I also almost missed the bus this morning--I had to sacrifice brushing my teeth, since I had been chatting with Doro and totally forgotten about the time... I was still at the bus stop early, but I was in almost-a-panic :)
Today was the first game of round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs for the Blackhawks, and since I didn't know at all what to expect, I was rather apprehensive as I changed into my Toews-Shirsey and Hawks-Sweater (it's gotten pretty cold here) and watched... not for long though, as there was dinner maybe five minutes into the game, and when I got back to it (with 3 minutes remaining) it was 1-1...
The game ended 4-1 with three goals coming in the third period; Tazer and Kaner went without a goal again, but it was a very nice game (at least the third period, the second was a bit boring? Lots of Shots on Goal for the Hawks--they outshot the Red Wings 42-21, in the second period alone it was 17-5 or something), including one OMG moment--Hawks were up 3-1, and then there was a ping and I, just as CBC, was sure the puck had gone into the Hawks' net--but no, the crossbar and then #7 Seabrook had saved them!
Yeah, and that's it?
Oh right, I was crying (almost... well, my eyes got a bit wet) because I had watched an old dancing CD from 2011 of myself... and remembered what I'd given up for Canada... but while it was nice to watch, I only had to think about everything I've learnt so far, and it passed.
So, Friday I have a lunch date with a girl from my Japanese class last semester, and in the afternoon, we're gonna board the camper and drive to camping (yay) for the weekend, which means I'll miss game 2 :(
Maybe I can get my mom to text me the results?
She could even watch it--it's on at 7 p.m. her time, so should be finished my half past nine!
... But do I want to know?
I'm off to bed now,
