In non-viral related news:
- the annual Let's Talk Science Western Canadian Regional Conference is this weekend. Which means that cools peeps from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan & Manitoba will gather at UBC for two fun-filled days of talking about science outreach. It's always a good time and it's nice that it's happening during this down time when I don't have to think about my thesis, so I can really enjoy it. We are going to watch the Canucks vs. the Flames at Nevermind with the Albertans -- I really hope the Canucks can actually manage to beat the Flames*, because I don't know if I can live with gloating Albertans!
- my friend Therese is coming to visit me next week. Yay Therese!
- I scored the game winning goal in my hockey game last night!** yay me!***
*If you want to see something really funny, check out this Calgary Flames video.
**Yes, I played hockey despite being sick. About half my team was sick (one girl played despite having pneumonia!). Crazy hockey players!
***If it seems like I only talk about hockey when something good happens, that's just because I only talk about hockey when something good happens. Case in point: I score a game winning goal, it goes on the blog; we lose 10-2, no mention is made. It's called "fair and balanced" reporting. =)
