Canada absolutely wiped the floor with the Russians in Olympic hockey a couple of days ago much to the glee of home grown hockey nuts like me. Soon I shall off to a good friend's place for steaks, beer, and to watch the Canada - Slovakia semi-final game. Canada *should* win this game, but you never know. The Slovaks are a strong hockey team, but they are a bit lacking in depth when it comes to defence and I think think Canada will own them in their own end and pave the way for an absolutely epic Canada - U.S. gold medal game.
Avatar is one hell of a movie, and also happens to be the first movie I've seen in a theatre since 1998. The CG was so real it was uncanny and made up for the slightly predictable plot. This one is definitely on my list to see again.
I also seem to have one of strangest dogs in the world. Kato, for some reason known only to her, had a bit of a argument with the moon last night. Took me a couple of minutes to figure out what exactly she was all worked up about, and then I was laughing so hard that it was tough to breathe. Bark, bark, wooo-wooooo! then she'd chase her tail a few times and go back to barking and woo-wooing at the moon rising over the big spruce tree next door. Strangest thing I've seen in a while. I've no idea what she thought the moon was and what she thought it was going to do to her. She is nearly twelve years old, maybe she's losing her mind. Still, good entertainment.
Tomorrow will be spent on the ATV in the woods west of here with a couple of buddies. Sunday is reserved for the Olympic gold medal hockey game.
Got a considerable raise without asking for one, and was told I am a 'great asset' to the company. My busted ribs have finally healed to the point where I can function without pain and play hockey again. The weather has been wonderfully sunny and far warmer than normal for this time of year.
