HNIC (S)

HNIC stands for Hockey Night in Canada but for us it was hockey night in Sunnyvale. Simon, still recovering from single handedly taking himself down at EZ-5 on Saturday night, got up late this morning. The 5 am call from Germany didn't help things. I will get up late as possible on any given day so I got up when he did, which meant we rolled into work at 11:15 am. Great start. Midday we took a 1.5 hour lunch to pick up his car from my mechanic friend. By 5:15 pm a goal had already been scored by Carolina so Shannph and I packed up our things to head to Bennigans where 7 of the other Canadians showed up to watch the game together. I don't want to talk about the game except to say that Carolina's goalie is from Edmonton originally. Who do your family and friends cheer for if you're playing on the opponent's team? Another hockey season over. I guess I'll be close enough to the border to head back north on weekends to watch hockey on TV next season. We were actually thinking to bring back a Slingbox to watch CBC from here. We've fiddling with one here so I can steal Simon's cable from Seattle and watch TV online.

you can do that? whoaaaa. My roommate finally hooked up some cable (after two years without it) by connecting a splitter to the neighbors cable, just so he could watch the world cup and now he's moving and so I decided to move...so I have to move the first week of July...I considered for a moment that the rise in my rent was worth it for free cable but not paying rent for two moneths and bumming on friends couches is worth saving some money I guess...when are we going to kick it? I have time weekends and some evenings till august the first week in august...
