Sweden vs Germany

Navarik has rented two suites at GM Place so the staff can watch the mens hockey game between Sweden and Germany. How sweet is that?!?! I didn’t think I’d be able to go see any hockey games during the Olympics as tickets are quite expensive. And I’ve never been in a suite before either. I’m very excited. Unfortunately for Ed, the invite is for staff only. Sorry, babe.

Who to cheer for? Sweden’s roster looks pretty impressive so maybe I’ll cheer for Germany. They will be easier competition for Team Canada.

All of us also got a pair of the red 2010 Olympic mittens. I already bought a pair for myself a few weeks ago so I’ll give a pair to my mom. I think she’ll look cute wearing red mittens.

Sick again

I picked up a cold/cough this past week and for the second time in two months, I am sniffling and coughing away in a big way. I am so freaking tired of being sick. It’s been a bad winter for me, definitely. I even got the flu shot but this winter, it doesn’t seem to be making much of a difference for me.

I missed a couple of weeks of work last December and have missed a few days again this past week. I’ve discovered that there is nothing good on tv during the day. We have over 200 channels but good shows are really hard to come by. So I just turned off the tv and listened to my podcasts instead. This American Life rocks.

So, I am keeping my fingers crossed that I recover soon from this cold, don’t get sick again, and that I feel good again. It’s been a while since I have felt energetic and healthy. Soon, I hope.

Rainy Olympics?

It’s been raining a lot and it’s been quite warm (around 8degC). The snow at Cypress mountain is being washed away. I hope we’ll get some snow and cold weather in time for the Olympics only a month away.

I’m geared up for the Games. I have a Canada hoody, toque, and red mittens to wear to the events. We have tickets for curling, bobsledding, and a victory ceremony. Should be fun...
