NHL Playoffs Primer

April 30, 2003

NHL PLAYOFFS PRIMER (simple version, coz that’s what I can give you people without sounding like a total idiot :P) Apparently, my explanation of the National Hockey League playoffs made Kal’s head figuratively explode. HAHAHAHA.. it’s not that hard to understand! At first, there are 16 teams that compete for the Cup in the first […]

The gift of caring for people / encouragement

April 30, 2003

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, YVONNE.. hope you have a good one today! 🙂 Lillian tells me you’re enjoying married life in Hong Kong.. it was pretty cool to be at your wedding a couple years ago. Sorta weird to know that we have all these white people (that we’ll never meet again) as distant relatives, too. 😉 […]

Aussie accents / weird nicknames

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANDREA.. I hope you have a really awesome one today! 🙂 It’s been fun at church, and you’re a real blessing and encouragement to me. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAMIE.. I hope you have a great one today! 🙂 It was fun at school and when we lived across the street from each other years […]

Internet surveys

April 28, 2003

INTERNET SURVEYS Another day, another Internet survey.. now, I’ve had various permutations of this general “question-and-answer” survey sent to me over the last couple of years. (and I usually answer them, vaguely annoying my friends in the process.. is that weirdly pathetic or what?) It’s funny, though.. they always seem to consist of the same […]

Note to real-life friends

April 28, 2003

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JULIE.. I hope you have a great one today! Now, why is it I seemingly always run into you, Elaine, and your mom at Oakridge mall? 😉 Just a note to my real-life friends who may be reading this, as it seems you’re doing so in ever increasing numbers: I will not take […]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NATHAN (Dr. Collapso)… hope you have an awesome one today! 🙂 You were a great person to talk to, and I wonder what happened to you; last I heard, you were in Japan teaching English.. a cool Aussie humorous person is always a good thing.. 😉 Yet another weird nickname that doesn’t come […]

I’m 99 or 100 years old, according to the kiddies…

April 26, 2003

Awana was pretty cool.. great to see the kids back again. However, there’ll be an extreme shortage of leaders next week coz of Daniel camp. Hopefully, we’ll muddle through. But this week wasn’t too bad.. the kids called me by name, gave me their money, and did all (or most of) the stuff they were […]

Avoiding bus accidents

April 26, 2003

Just narrowly avoided being stuck on a bus for goodness knows how long. I was taking the bus to go to Awana, but then just missed my connecting bus (the 98 B-Line). I was a bit annoyed, so went into the local office supply store to buy some stuff, then caught the next bus in. […]

Avoid cliques at camp and alkie jokes!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MANDY! Hope you have a great one today! 🙂 Got a surprise last night.. Eric M. is back in town, so of course there was the resumption of booty jokes galore.. um, yay? (you do NOT want to know what my “booty logo” was, at ALL) Had a great time last night with […]
