I likes you. Even though you sometimes mention Twilight (*twitches*) and your icon is Pattinson, you are quite enjoyable xD I like forward to our mutual IB fangirl moments.
you just changed my day. the icon, i just can’t think of a good idea on that. i am yankeegirl everywhere, maybe it’s time for a change. maybe a yankees cap on chrisoph waltz…yes. i wish i knew how to use photoshop cause i would be doing that right now!!
I’m in a room full of hockey lovers. I am not one of them. I’ve never attended a professional game but I know plenty, likely by osmosis. I have been draped in hockey culture my whole life. Hockey Night in Canada - in front of the T.V. in my pajamas picking at my toenails surrounded by screaming and jumping friends and relatives. My brother has played hockey his entire life, and owns a hockey school. I’ve dated at least four hockey players over the years. My sister’s first part-time job - Maple Leaf Gardens at 13yrs old (‘79-‘86 - oh but I was in concert heaven those years). Dad has and enormous amount of memorabilia, incl 2 full sets of cards from Gretzky’s rookie year, mint condition. My best friend’s husband has for years driven the zamboni at MLG and now at the ACC. I was one of those kids that watched the ‘72 Canada/Soviat series in a grade 3 public school classroom and it was a big deal. I remember all six pallbearers at my uncle’s funeral wearing Toronto Maple Leaf hockey jerseys. My grade 12 economics teacher used to spend the first 10 minutes of every class on hockey news and trivia. Granddad played. Dad played. Both my neice and nephew play. My brother in law is a goalie. At any given time you will find my mother not only watching hockey but listening simultaneously to another game with radio and headphones. There’s a whole room devoted in my parents’ home to hockey awards and photographs. And then there’s me. I was once introduced by my father as ‘the one who doesn’t like hockey’. Yes indeed. I am the family’s dirty little secret. But wait….
today hell just froze over into a giant hockey rink, because I’m actually watching the game. Fuck me. I hope the US wins.
I HAVE A 9YR OLD CANCER SURVIVOR AND HAVE SPENT PLENTY OF TIME AROUND ALL SORTS OF DISEASE. MY MATERNAL GRANDMOTHER DIED FROM DIABETES, ALONG WITH MANY FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FAMILY.
THERE IS A WEIGHT HEIGHT CHART THEY USE IN THE PEDIATRIC ONCOLOGY DEPARTMENT. MY SON WAS OVER WEIGHT. THE RISKS OF BEING OVER WEIGHT WITH HIS PAST AND FAMILY HISTORY ARE EXTREMELY HIGH. I STRUGGLE EVERYDAY TRYING TO KEEP HIM ON THE LINE. IT’S NOT EASY. EXERCISE AND BEING CAUTIOUS WITH FOOD WILL GIVE HIM A LONGER, HEALTHIER LIFE. THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT.
