Why do they make Tylenol Cold tablets with this ‘Cool Burst’ sensation? Mint and apple juice just don’t mix. If I want something minty, I’ll brush my teeth. And I bet adding that ‘Cool Burst’ sensation makes the medicine cost even more. Capitalists…
My voice is almost non-existent this morning. That’s good news for some people. 😉 It’s so nice to be sick and not have to worry about how long it’ll be before I can sing again.
This weekend has been great. I went to see the Huskies’ men’s hockey team play Lethbridge both Friday and Saturday night. Unfortunately the rink was a bit cool, which left me longing for the end of the games more often than not. Friday’s game was very exciting, with the Huskies winning 3-2 in overtime. Last night’s game was not as exciting, as the Huskies went up 4-0 in the first period and went on to win 7-0. I was really surprised the game wasn’t a bit rougher after the Huskies’ seventh goal.
It was much better hockey than the Blades action I saw last weekend. Plus, the rink at the U of S is quite small, making you a part of the action. The only disappointing thing was the fact that the fans weren’t very vocal. I found I was the loudest person in the rink, though that’s not unusual for me. 😉
After last night’s game a bunch of us went to play pool at Snookers on 8th street. It’s a nice pool hall on the 2nd floor of a strip mall. It’s very well-kept and well-run. I showed off my inability to play pool, but no one else was that good either. Except my brother. Jeff’s a pool shark! All of those afternoons playing pool at our grandparents paid off for him – obviously they didn’t pay off for me. I did sink 3 in a row at one point, but that was the end of my magic, if you can call it magic.
The girls beat the boys 3 games to 2, which meant the boys had to buy ‘Tacos in a Bag,’ some weird concoction the pool hall advertised on every table. We were more than curious as to what these ‘Tacos in a Bag’ were, and why they cost $3.00. Jeff went to order them, and when the waitress delivered them, she said, and I quote, “What a strange decision, guys. I’ve never had to serve these before.” We found her statement more than odd, especially as these ‘Tacos in a Bag’ are advertised everywhere! They ended up being crushed up tacos in a Doritos bag with a glob of sour cream and some lettuce and a fork with which to eat it. They had run out of taco meat. Jeff paid $3.00 for a small bag of Doritos with some sour cream and lettuce. He liked it, though.
I also went shopping yesterday. Michelle and I had planned to go see ‘The Prestige’ at the cheap theaters, but I ended up dropping $160 of my Christmas money on clothes. 🙂 But, it was something that needed to happen, because I don’t have a lot of sweaters, or wintry clothes. I did not buy one sweater when I lived in BC because I’d just sweat in it. The climate is too damp for sweaters. Here, though, they’re a necessity.
I do have some sad news, though. I had to drop my American Foreign Policy class. I can’t tell you how sad this made me, as I’d been so excited for the class ever since I registered for it last summer. I had to drop it as I didn’t have the proper pre-requisites for it. It requires that I take POLS 260, International Relations. I would have gone to the department head to have them override it, but it’s a full-year course. That makes me think there are some fairly important concepts in it that I should really know before attempting American Foreign policy. So, I dropped it. 😦 I then noticed a lot of the upper years POLS courses require POLS 260. This could be problematic if I want to finish this Political Studies/History degree up next year. It might be intersession for me! Oh well…
