"Gimme More"

Yes, I will admit that I downloaded Britney’s new song. Maybe it’s just that the trainwreck that is her life is rather fascinating. It’s one of those things that’s so awful that you just can’t look away, for fear that you’ll miss the next explosive detail. It’s a catchy tune. And as a fellow human being, I hope she gets herself together.

Belated Happy Thanksgiving to all. I didn’t actually get to have Thanksgiving with my family. I worked all weekend, and since I had to be at work at 6:30 am on Monday morning, it didn’t make sense for me to go all the way out to Rosthern on Sunday night for 2 hours, only to have to turn around and come right back home. Work was ridiculously slow yesterday. Why we weren’t open only from 10-6 is beyond me.

When I got home yesterday, I watched the 2nd half of the Riders/Stampeders game. I shut it off at the beginning of the 4th quarter, being so nervous that the Riders were going to give the game away, because they would. As Mike Abou-Mechrek noted last week, the Riders need to develop a killer instinct. Rob Vanstone nailed it right on the nose at half-time when he wrote that the Riders were letting Calgary hang around. They should have nailed them when they had the chance. I’ll admit I was leery about the game’s outcome, as it’s these sorts of ‘gimme’ games that are often recipies for disaster. But the Riders pulled it out. Let’s hope they can put away the Ti-Cats the next two weeks and challenge for 1st place.

And because of the Riders’ efforts yesterday, I am the proud winner of a DQ ice cream cake. It makes me hungry just thinking about it. Part of the deal is that it’s decorated however I choose. It’s definitely going to have a big ‘S’ in the middle. And around the perimeter I think it’s going to say the following: “Nicole Wins Every Time.”

End of story.

    Isn’t your Ice Cream Cake inscription kind of ego-centric?

    Oh, it’s not egocentric. It’s just a friendly reminder that I don’t make bets that I can’t win.
