Happy Canada Day!

Happy Birthday, Canada!! :)

Today is Canada Day. I want to wish all my Canadian LJ friends a very happy, very safe, Canada Day. Go out there and celebrate our country and the fact that we are unique and diverse. Just remember to play safe! :)

Happy Birthday, Canada. :)

Second Anniversary, of Sorts

Today is an anniversary of sorts. It is exactly two years ago today that Stefanie, the woman who I thought was the love of my life, dumped me. (If you want to read more about that day just follow the link.)

Two years later, I don't really miss her as much as I used to, but there are times when I'm doing something and I think, "Gee, wonder what Stef would have thought about this?" and that sort of thing.

I'm still not as social as I used to be, and I certainly seem to (not so much avoid social situations as) be picky about the social functions and stuff that I get into. While I have good friends and all, both male and female, I miss the closeness of female companionship. And the sex. (Well, I guess that means I'm not dead yet.) :)

Anyway, it's Canada Day, so time to be a bit festive and get out of this funk mood.

NHL Free Agent Frenzy Day Thought

Well, so far it has not been a Happy NHL Free Agent Frenzy Day here in Ottawa.

Dany Heatley vetoed the trade to Edmonton last night, and so Ottawa is stuck waiting to see what happens with that. Plenty of Edmonton calls to Heatley to try and convince him to accept the trade, but still have to wait and see. Meanwhile, Ottawa's woes continue with the toughening up of the Leafs under Brian Burke, and the moves the Montreal Canadiens have made. I don't think Ottawa can do anything else until Heatley is dealt, and that seems unlikely now, unless something changes before midnight tonight. Of course, if he really doesn't want to play in Ottawa, he may have to take the deal to Edmonton. Just a bastard of a player, putting the team in this position. :<

By the time this day is over, I expect that Ottawa will be the only one not to have swung a deal of some sort or been unable to jump into the free agent market. And I figure that Chris Neil will land elsewhere. :(
