Science Center~

Aha… I haven’t posted for the past two days I think… sorry! I’ve been busy… So I have a lot of news to catch up on~~

So first things first. The Olympics.
USA now have 32 medals, Germany has 26, Norway’s got 19, and Canada has racked up 17.
Hockey: The Canadian’s Men’s Hockey team won their game against Russia 7-3 I believe, moving them up to the next round. Their semi-final round is to be played today.

Hockey: Canada’s Women’s Hockey team won Gold yesterday, the score being 2-0. After their win, the audience filed out, and the women took to the ice once more, carrying beer and champagne. They won, why not celebrate? See I think that they deserve to celebrate, seeing as they did win Gold for the country. However, the media didn’t think so. They snapped pictures of the team’s eighteen year old player chugging down a beer. ‘Course she was also the one to score the only two goals of the game in the first round, but no one mentions that. Only the fact that she was drinking, on the ice. Whatever *eyes roll* they deserve to party a little after being stressed and worked so much. According to a poll taken this morning, 85% of people thought that there was NOTHING wrong with them celebrating their success, while the other 15% of people thought that that was a wrong and unforgivable thing. I’m part of that 85%. Girls just wanna have fun~!

Bobsleigh: I believe we won Gold and Silver for this one, womens I think…

Skating: Joannie Rochette won Gold in Figure Skating, competing fatastically, even after the shock of her mother’s death. Congrats to her~!

Speed Skating: Clara Hughes walks away from the Winter Olympics receiving a Bronze medal for her fantastic run. She’s going into retirement I believe, unless she’s still going to compete in the Summer Olympics… She has had an amazing athletic career, being the only person to ever win medals in both the Summer and Winter Olympics~
I think that’s all I’ve got for now, Go Canada!

Oh! I got this cute Miga toy fron McDonalds that’s like snowboarding! This is like the only time I like McDonald’s existance.

Next thing: Science Center Trip
So today people in gr 11 bio went to the Science Center to see the exibit Body Works, that’s like specially featured there. I’m sorry, but I thought it was a waste of 20 dollars, plus another 10 for lunch. Though the food was good, it just wasn’t worth THAT much.

My friends testing their reaction time (had to black out some people (or well one for now…))

A flying tree! I’m so mature…

The exibit we visited (we weren’t allowed to take pictures inside though…)

Currently: Studying for a business test on Monday

Reading: Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead (Frostbite was epically suspensful… she’s a really good writer~)

Listening to: Love So Sweet by Arashi (I’ve clearly been watching too much Hana Yori Dango…)

OH! I’m on the last episode before the finale of season 2, and oh my gosh, it’s so addicting, sad, weird, and stupid all together. I seriously hate Domyouji’s mom, and Makino’s family is still really spazzy… And ugh, I hate Umi, some friend! *eyes roll* *stares at the episode in disbelief and hatred* I still love Rui, and Akira’s way too nice to be the son of a mafia leader, but Sojiroh’s still cool, and Domyouji…he’s… argh *unmentionable spoilers*

Okay, NOW I’m done~!

Distractions

So I typed a bunch of stuff, pressed publish, to find that my internet disconnected… now I have to type it out again…

please enjoy this new song by Iyaz (filler music(filler music with taste~))

This morning, my dad was driving us down to my grandparents place, and we saw a Viva bus on fire… it was quite alarming. However, it was burning across the street from the fire deparment, so all was well, once the flame was put out…

Currently: Bio homework

Canada Won A Gold!

Yesterday, Freestyle Skier Alexandre Bilodeau won Canada their first Gold Medal on the Freestyle Skiing-Men’s Monguls event. The first Gold medal on our home turf. Finally. It’s cool though, the first medal for Canada was won during the Ladies’ Moguls, and now the first Gold has been won on the Men’s Monguls. Seems like we’re pretty good at the Monguls. Yesterday, I also watched Figure Skating. Canada hadn’t done so well, but of course, China did. One of the pairs from China looked like they had gotten mugged. The guy’s shirt was like shredded, and just horribly designed. However, their routine was good, and so was everyone elses’, mainly because they all had to do the same turns, lifts, etc. I only watched the short program though, so I’m not entirely sure how it all worked out, though the news will probably re-run it again…. and again…. and again.

The US is still on top, when it comes to medals. They currently have a total of six, while Germany has collected four, and France and Canada has obtained a total of three.

So today is Family Day, and my dad has to work since it’s not a ‘Federal’ Holiday. Which is unfair. So much for Family day. It’s more like ‘Mom, Siblings, and Alicia being forced to spend the day together’ day. That’s not very fun…
