Go Flames Go!

A little under two hours to go until the Flames hopefully take out the Sharks once and for all (Live Broadcsast here). We'll be off to Calgary for Memorial Day weekend for the Stanley Cup games 2 & 3 if Calgary win tonight (if not, they must win game).

I can't believe I am listening to A-ha right now. I just wanted to know how the popular music of the mid-80's sounded now. I prefered listening to Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Iron Maiden back then (what a metalhead!), but I find 80's music to be quite nostalgic and some songs are just great for screaming along to in a dorky fashion. A prime example would be one of the greatest one hit wonders of all time 'Come on Eileen' and 'Tainted Love'.... I actually got a copy of the top 100 one hit wonders of all time. I was curious with A-ha because I thought they released a fair bit of stuff, but 'Take on me' was #8. Perhaps this was an American list since even Sinead O'Conner, Divinyls, Faith No More (WTF???), and even Aqua did more than Barbie Girl. Still, I like compilations and I like listening to stuff I haven't heard for 10+ years.

I heard yesterday we will be returning to the 'glass house' (where we stayed for Labor weekend) in a week and a hal for the weekend. Since there is no TV I hope the hockey ends in 6 or less games, otherwise we'll be looking for a sportsbar! Same thing applies for the Lakers since the inlaws MUST watch those games! (okay okay, so I am an old Payton fan, but still...)

Anyway, time to get stuff ready for tomorrow as we have to drive four hours for the big appointment, and have to stop at a couple of places before it happens....then time to watch the game!!
