Odd couplings…

You know, I’m sitting here, watching “Maid in Manhattan” on the W network because “Hockey Night in Canada” is over for the evening (more on that in a minute…), and I just can’t help but stare at Ralph Fiennes and Jennifer Lopez. It is possibly the oddest couple in cinematic history. In romantic comedy cinematic history at least. Now I’ve watched a lot of romantic comedies in my life. I live through them vicariously. And everytime I watch this (and not often, because, Jennifer Lopez is not my favoritest actress…), I just don’t get it. It doesn’t make sense. It’s beyond weird. Especially after watch Ralph Fiennes in “The Constant Gardener”. Now that’s a Ralph Fiennes movie. “The English Patient” – Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas. That makes sense. Ralph Fiennes and Jennifer Lopez – it’s like some bizarre dream. Anyways…

My sports obsession has returned. I feel completely whole now that hockey is back. Granted, I didn’t get to see my Leafs beat out by the Canadiens due to rehearsal and the Rider game, but I just felt a sense of peace with something to watch on Saturday night. Weird. My Leafs suck. I know they do. I don’t think they’ll make the playoffs. So much for positive thinking, eh?

Now, my Riders. I was glad they lost. Something needed to pop the glass bubble they were living in. They were getting a little complacent on defence. The 63 yard bomb on 2nd and 30 – nuh uh. Not in my house. I truly wanted them to lose this game. Otherwise they would have lost a more critical game down the road. I believe we’re going to be in the Grey Cup. And I’m going to shoot myself for not having a ticket. Bad, bad, bad, bad Nicole. Oh, well. That’s $120 some odd dollars I’ll save myself. How’s that for positive thinking.
