Wes Walz, the Stars, and other stuff

This picture is seriously old school. It was taken by my friend Mollie and I at the last Skills Competition in 2003.
School is still eating my soul, so I apologize for the infrequent posting. I have four days coming up to catch up on life outside what's due immediately, so I'll try to finish up a few things I've been kicking around. Gaborik, Burns, Koivu, and whatever else I think of by this coming Sunday will all be posted, and I think Baby Hockey Jesus might show His face as well.
Wes Walz Day is on Friday for those of you who didn't know. The Wild have offered that you can write him a note that will be presented to him, and my bro and I agree that it would be bomb if it was really long and awesome. The link to write some warm and fuzzy things for Walzy is here I re-wrote mine like 10 times because I didn't want it to be lame.

If anyone goes to the game, I'd love to see pictures, so please email/Facebook/text me any pictures, comments, or whatnot that you have from the game, I want to know EVERYTHING. Walzy is a BAMF, and he's sorely missed in my world, I dunno about you guys.

The Stars are coming to town tomorrow (well today, actually), and I expect great things. We have a long history of kicking the Stars around when they come to the X, and they haven't exactly been spectacular this season. Sorry, Cat! Minnesota natives Mark Parrish and Matt Niskanen will be there as well as Toby Petersen who is also technically from MN. Petersen sucked a whole lot for the Oilers, so I don't really care about him. I miss Grumpy, so I'm looking forward to this game which starts 10 minutes after I get to start my Thanksgiving break! (Thank you major that has a lot of lab required classes...) The game is on Channel 5, so all of you can tune in!
In other news:
-Shep got his first goal of the season Monday against the Caps.
-My fantasy hockey teams are both rocking their respective tacos.
-Hedgehogs are pretty awesome pets, I kind of wish I had one.
-I have a new pet frog who requires a name, any suggestions are welcome.
-I hope my family saves me the giant turkey to color in from the Strib tomorrow. It's awesome stress relief during finals.
-Norm Coleman is winning the Senate race with 231 votes. That's why it's important to go and vote, folks!
-Looking at past Oh You Turkey winners, these kids go all out. I was always lucky if I even finished coloring the turkey at all. (yes, I really am 20, don't judge me)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Americans out there, and happy 4th Thursday of November to everyone else!

I'm supposed to go on Friday so I'll do the best I can to get you pictures and updates.

My friend totally had a bunch of pet hedgehogs when we were little. Then they had hedgehog babies. They were cute.

Ooh, a pet frog. It needs a good name.

There is always a massive fight at my house over who gets to color the turkey.

Sweet! That would be much appreciated.
My neighbor smuggled a hedgehog into the house for a few days, and she was really fun...minus the random hissing noise she made and the spikes. I feel like the babies would be adorable.
Haha, when I was a kid, the goal was to get to color the whole turkey myself with my brother's crayons.

The turkey has been saved. Now if I just get my butt in gear and send some of this stuff to you, all will be well. I have about 3 weeks of Sports and 2 copies of THN. Bad, bad mommy!

Cortney said...

Lol, how did you start thinking about pet Hedgehogs? A little oldschool Sonic on Sega?

Hope your finals go well, and aren't too hellish!

Kirsten said...

No, one of the girls in the house snuck a hedgehog in to the house for a few days and we spent a lot of time playing with her.
