Sport Chek and New Hampshire on the same day?!

November 25, 2008

PHEW… thought I’d NEVER get back online! My computer refused to work when I finally got up, so I thought maybe the monitor had problems. Don’t know what it was, but it finally worked again about an hour later. At least I got a baby card and some Christmas cards done. I hope there’s a […]

Old nursery rhymes, hospitals, dreaming, and online emoticons

July 18, 2006

Karen sent us all another email about the BBQ, only this time it was to apologize for her not being sufficiently prepared and loving at the “corporate side dish strategy meeting” the other night. It might be better if she apologized for last week’s incessant emailing about this event… 20 emails about the same subject?! […]

For the last time, this is NOT a sports store! / I got a sweet deal on a water bottle!

July 12, 2006

I occasionally get phone calls asking if this apartment is SportsChek. I’ve tried telling people that this isn’t a sports store, but I usually get this whiny response: “But this is the number I called, and I was told this is SportsChek / Coast Mountain Sports!” So now I just hang up on them: there […]

Don’t jabronies look up phone numbers before they dial them?!

May 12, 2006

The only reason I have my phone on is so that Helen can reach me when she gets here. So far this morning, I’ve dealt with two telemarketers and at least three wrong numbers… one of which was from a Dr. Hutchinson’s office looking for someone named Tricia! Don’t these jabronie numbnuts LOOK UP phone […]

Quirky groceries, wrong numbers, Kirby Puckett dead, violins as lobsters, quizzes

March 6, 2006

I now have four litres of green tea, a lot of milk (chocolate / strawberry / regular), chocolate cherry fondue yogurt, digestive biscuits, an Asian citrus wild salmon meal, and a bunch of other more mundane groceries… go me! Yes, I know I ranted about strawberry milk recently, but Milk To Go tastes better than […]

Wordless proposals

September 27, 2003

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANITA.. I hope you have a great one today! 🙂 It’s been cool knowing you all these years; choir, Awana, etc. had plenty of distraction last night with friends.. Adela doesn’t know what’s up with the SportsChek thing.. Nathan and Eric listened to me ramble on.. Eunice liked my idea of a “wordless […]
