This was another crazy busy week at the media empire that is the Triangle News. Long hours and the stress of deadlines all in our effort to bring you the best paper possible.
Besides work, there are other things that are keeping me busy. Of course, there’s the other job, trying to pack and clean the apartment and parenting (can’t forget that).
There’s also finding time to make fun Kelly. Who am I kidding, I always have time for that. Although, I probably gave Kelly way too many compliments this week. It was all I could do to keep up her morale as she tries to keep up with my fast pace and amazing work ethic. Plus, the more I compliment her, the easier it is for my conscience to make fun of her later on.
Some other things I’m working on this week. I’m trying to figure out why gorilla doesn’t rhyme with tortilla. I have yet to find out, I will let you know how that goes in the weeks to come.
Note: I had something else written here, but had to delete it because of words I’m no longer allowed to say. Censorship is poopy. I hope I’m allowed to say that.
I’m also working on winning the lottery. I feel I am getting really close. You will know by Tuesday if this weekend was finally my turn to win big. I always wonder how good looking I will seem once I win the lottery. I have a feeling I’d become pretty darn handsome. Is that bad to say? Oh well.
Have you figured out yet that I don’t’ like to think before I speak? I like to be just as surprised as everyone else.
Fun fact of the week: If you put two straws in your mouth, one inside a drink and one outside it, you won’t be able to drink through either straw. That one hurts my brain a little, I’m not even sure of the science behind it, but going to have to try it out.
Ok, one more fun fact of the week. Smelling bananas and/or green apples (smelling, not eating) can help you lose weight! You are welcome!
BREAKING NEWS! Well, as of this very moment it’s breaking news, (in my world), but by the time the paper comes out, it will be old news.
Anyways, Edmonton Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini just announced the club will not renew the contract of Head Coach Tom Renney. Interesting, but not entirely unexpected.
Let the speculation begin on his replacement.
My guess right now would be Brent Sutter. We shall see.
Does the five second rule apply to beer? After this week, I sure hope so. I’m not even sure what that means.
On Friday night, I took a rare night off to go to the Nickelback concert in Saskatoon. I’m sure it was a blast and I haven’t had that much fun since a Saturday night in June a couple summers ago. And I’m sure we will have reports how the concert went in next week’s Triangle News.
