Winter…no hockey…this bites

First cold…then snow, then it rains, it seems so played. The hockey strike is never going to end. All that left is football (Thank God). You can’t smoke in bars, Christmas is here with all it’s consumer needs.
This isn’t heaven…this sucks.
I can’t believe I have the winter “blah’s” already and it’s so early in the season.
So, the other night I’m at Pauper’s downing a pint looking around and it’s a funeral home (not the fun kind of funeral home either) and all I can think is “I wonder what the new episode of Lost is going to be like?”
Thats when I almost broke down and wept.

Maybe I can get into rugby, soccer or some other sport….ladies decathlon…tennis…suggestions?

    also… one thing i did to help the winter blahs (as i had been a real summer person since i was competing in dragon boating) was to get on the slopes (as crappy as they are) and learn to board.

    the most painful experience (before giving birthy to an 8lb 9oz baby of course) but worth it. once i got going, i didn’t want to stop.

    winter became THAT much shorter. Also helped that my husband is a ski patroller. If you are into that sort of thing, you can become a patroller too. ski/board for free…

    course, i also can’t forget the fact that i had a bruised tail bone for about a month or two. ouch!

    what about soap operas? maybe they can fill the sports void… can they?

    I was reading my favourite band’s blog, but when their tour (and daily blog posts) ended, I suffered withdrawal until I started poking through the blogs on Livejournal for amusement.

    I have to get out more.
