Christmas Week

One of my gifts this year included a ticket to go and see The Toronto Maple Leafs play. I'm not a huge fan, in fact, prior to meeting Greg, I don't think I'd even ever watched 5 minutes of the game. After 4 years of watching on TV, I still don't know the rules, but I know Greg loves the sport and I enjoy watching him get really mad or really happy depending on how the game is being played. It's a lot more fun going in person to see the game as the crowd is absolutely crazy. The only problem I had was that I didn't really know what was going on because there was no commentator, and even Greg wasn't saying as much as he does when he's talking to the TV. I managed to follow the puck around the ice for the most part, but as there was no instant replay, or PVR, I had no idea why the crowd was booing or clapping until WAY after the fact.

Christmas Eve was quietly spent at home with our brothers. No one got drunk, everyone behaved. And, I had a special gift to open in extra special wrapping paper. See the paper? Greg managed to save a piece of the living room wall paper that we tore down. It seems that there was a half a role that he found in the garage. I had to laugh, I thought I'd seen that last of that hideous pattern! Inside the package was a new digital camera, and I am so pleased with it. I can't wait to start taking more pics!

Posted by PicasaOn Boxing Day (Dec 26) Greg and I hosted a Housewarming Party. The first guest came at 2pm, and the last guest left at 12:20 am. It was a very long day and I think about 40 people showed up including some of the new neighbours. It was a lot of work, but very fun, and all in all, I think it was a success. I got to play barkeeper, but I'm not sure how good of an idea that was. Seems I've got a rather heavy hand mixing drinks. I had a rather heavy head the next day.

I think my favourite part of the holidays, was when they were over and we could finally veg in front of the couch. Pez sent me this movie, and I think it is my new favourite Chick Flick. I LOVED it! Even Greg thought it was good.

Hope your holidays were as enjoyable as mine.

OMG at that wallpaper! That was up on the walls and you still bought the place?! lol

Sounds like your party was a great success!

I am happy to hear that you liked "Love Actually". It is so great!

Well, let me just say that ANYTHING that has Colin Firth in it is wonderful. (OK, calming myself down now. )

Have a wonderful New Year's Eve! And here's to the next year, eh?

ohhh... cute pic of you at the hockey game. And I love, LOVE Love Actually. I could watch that movie a million times.

Happy New Year!

The best thing about hockey is that there's almost nothing to understand -- they skate, they shoot, they try to stop the other guy from scoring. No red zones and wishbones or shooting from the paint and drawing fouls. I LOVE the game! And I'm not surprised you could follow the puck. I've been paying attention to that, and it turns out women are much better at it than men are. I guess I should qualify that and say, for people who didn't grow up watching hockey. Sounds like a great evening to me!

Your (ex)wallpaper is ... um ... interesting. It would have made a lovely pillow. Enjoy your new camera.

Happy New Year, Ramona!
