Or at least today. So I tape RAW every week. Always have, possibly always will. Now last week I missed MOST of Shawn’s promo (I cut out the guys I don’t like, La Resistance, Shelton Benjamin, Christian, ect) so I watched the repeat at midnight last week and taped the full bit. Now I always leave the tape in the VCR ready to go. So yesterday we had company for Easter and he wanted to watch the last few scenes of Die Hard 2. Fine, which meant I had to rewind the tape and put in the movie. So thinking ahead I wrote down theRead More →

So the week started and ended about the same, more late nights :o) I can’t wait to get back to a normal sleep schedule, hopefully sometime soon. (Though with TPH/HP lurking in the wings, I’m not sure how possible that’s really going to be) Weird question to throw out there, does anyone know who sings a song called I think “I’m Alive” I know its not Celine Dion, it sounds like a guy and its got sort of a strange beat to it so I’m not sure if its something new or old. If I knew what radio station I’d been listening to tonight I’dRead More →

Its funny how a muse can turn your world upside down. I’m really starting to think mine is behind the insomnia the last 3 weeks or so. Because it seems I can edit and write up a frenzy from about 11 p.m to somewhere around 3 to 4 in the morning. And I don’t even notice the time passing. Even stranger, no cravings for Coke or Dr. Pepper lol Though I have munched my way though a small bag of those chocolate easter eggs *g*So the final draft of the ms is coming along. I’ve got a good chunk done, completed and just sitting thereRead More →

Stress sucks. Plain and simple. Today it caused extreme pain in my ribcage. It seriously felt like I’d been shot *sigh* So not good. Cut my afternoon work to zero because I couldn’t move. Couldn’t lean forward, couldn’t change how I sat. I could just sit there and try to breathe. Guess tonight will be another late night to make up for it. Onto other news now (sounds like a newscaster!)Still no progress on ripping the DVD. I tried one but it had the screen size down so small if you played it on a tv later it would be like watching it on aRead More →

Tommy Salo @ Superskills 2002 – Skyreach Centre (c) Lis 2002 I found out today one of my favorite hockey players, Tommy Salo is retiring from professional hockey. Tommy is/was a great player and was one of the first guys I ever got to see play in person in 1999. A great goalie who was thoroughly underrated and one of the nicest guys I saw around the NHL and on the Edmonton Oilers. It was such a shame when he was dealt to Colorado and left the NHL at the end of last season to go play for MoDo in the Swedish Elite League.So toRead More →

First off, if anyone can recommend a good program to rip DVDs, could you please leave me a comment or email? We got some home videos on DVD last night that I’d like to rip and put on a VCD for myself but I’m clueless about how to do it :o) So any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks. Second, WWE Smackdown’s coming here May 31st to be televised. I’m on the fence about going. The thought that Randy may be on Smackdown permanently by then is tempting me (a lot!!!) as well as it could be the last time to see Taker in person.Read More →

Random musings, rants and raves… ~ Went through and cleaned up some of the blog today. I want to add a link to the side today but not sure I will or not, because I don’t know how much longer this website is going to be up.Anyway: www.worldslongestgame.com Brent’s presenting the cheque on Friday @ 1 pm mountain time to the Cross Cancer Institute along with I think some or most of the men who played in the game. Be interesting to see how much money these men raised for such a great cause. ~ What else…went out for dinner at a friend’s last night.Read More →

Isn’t that original? hehe Well first off, if anyone out there know’s how to put the links so that they show up when I publish the blog, please leave a comment. I can get them to show up in preview and then when I hit republish, they disappear. I can’t figure it out and I doubt I’m ever meant to :o) Second ramble of the evening, wrestling related so feel free to skip if your not a wwe fan. It was so great to see The Rockers together again! Shawn was jumping around and you could tell he was truly happy (and so cool toRead More →

Another strange weird day in the life of Lis… Never mind its two years to the Thursday I last got to see 44 play hockey in person -in an Islanders uniform no less 🙁 – the day still sucked. In the mail today was a lovely jury summons form. Woohoo *insert sarcasm here*. I think this is the first time in 16 years I’ll be fully embracing my panic attacks. Yes indeedy. I looked at the printed out stack of the first draft of Something To Talk About, the lovely draft that’s over a year or more old…okay probably closer to two…Its way different thanRead More →

Remember how I said I was getting the itch to query agents again on TPH? Well turns out didn’t need to query, just needed to wait for some of them to read their email. Checked the inbox this morning on my business account and found a request for the first 75 pages. Yay! She’d like to see it in April so that gives me time to finish off STTA and polish the pages on TPH.So excited about that. Funny how that bit of good news makes me feel better about the writing. I was sinking a bit into the ‘bad’ side of things, how crummyRead More →
