update: upon hearing this tress says, and i quote:


'that's what i do!
i grow on you like mold.
and then you like "don't leave me mold"'


great childrens learning shows

i suddenly remembered the show square one tv on PBS, from when i was really young (apparently 1987-1991). this show played a big factor in me becoming enthralled in mathematics.

there were other great shows besides the popular sesame street - the edison twins, reading rainbow.

even as i was in my early teens, shows like bill nye and wishbone were entertaining and informative at the same time.

i hope todays children's shows are as cool - i have not watched blue's clues, dora the explorer or baby einsteins but have heard mixed review


tennis tournament

playing tennis

i played in a tennis tournament over the weekend - my first one ever.

i lost both games but had fun. i entered the wrong event - the open, instead of the 4.5 rating and under. good practice though. my first match was 1-6, 0-6 against a man from cranbrook, bc who was the tournament pro.

my second match was 2-6, 2-6 against a tournament veteran. it was a better match than it appears though, as a lot of the games went to deuce.


this summer...

i have not blogged in a long time. amongst events that i can recall - went to a great "tv on the radio" concert, holidays with tressa, tim's bachelor party, bought a wii, won a street hockey tournament, went to a wedding in tisdale


street hockey champs

last friday, july 24th, a crew of my company's finest hockey players competed in the stantec sticks on 23rd charity street hockey tournament. i am not sure the number of teams (though math would tell me 16), but we somehow came out on top.

there were some solid teams - like a U of S Husky squad and a Saskatoon Blazers team. we went 4-0 to become A Side Champs and win a nice Stanley Cup replica (for the year) which we carried around proudly.

each team had one WHL or NHL player - including Colby Armstrong and Luke Schenn. Our representative was tampa bay prospect blair jones - who was a big component in us winning, though our entire team played solid and i potted my share of goals.

Ray Lamontagne - Jolene ()

...A man needs something he can hold onto
A nine pound hammer or a woman like you
Either one of them things will do
Jolene
I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze in my hair
Blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means...
