Superbowl Sunday

Yes, it's that time of year again, when humans of all ages come together over beer and nachos to scream at the television, and alternately cheer and groan, depending on what's going on somewhere much warmer than here (Florida this year, I think). Some merely watch for the humorous commercials (which tend to be pretty darned good) and yet others watch for the action on the field. Personally, I avoid it like the plague. Football has never been a major draw for me, and this is a day like every other. But my dad and his friends are having a grand time in the basement, watching the action on a HUGE screen and having philosophical discussions about field goals and touchdowns.

On a less happy note, my world is changing again. A couple of very good friends of mine are leaving town this week. I'm very sad about it. They're people that I am very comfortable and happy being around, and I will miss them immensely. I'm trying to be mature about it, but to be honest with you, I just want to cry. I wish them nothing but the best in their new home and new city, but I hope they come back for visits every now and then. Take care - I won't say goodbye, but see you later.

This week will be a good one (other than my friends leaving, of course). My mom and I are taking a trip to Edmonton to see the Barenaked Ladies, one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE groups. They are going to be awesome! I promise to post a review when I get home, but expect nothing but praise :)

Are they a country group? Enjoy the show, weather is bad here this week. As for the football the Colts won, I am sure you heard that though throughout the neighborhood! : )

I bet the Barenaked Ladies will be amazing. I'd like to go when they come down to Lethbridge but I'm on call and with my luck I'd have to leave the concert to go to work :(

Your friends miss you already!
