Actually watched SNL last night, which is something I very rarely do anymore. It's just not the same without Tina Fey. But... it was Christopher Walken hosting, and he creeps me out to the point where I almost can't stop watching him, and I thought maybe they'd do the Continental sketch. Alas, they didn't. But I did discover the band "Panic at the Disco". Which, as I understand it, used to be "Panic! at the Disco". I liked their first song, Nine in the Afternoon and thus did not turn off the TV when they did their second song...
... which I recognized and have known solely as "the song where the guy's talking about closing the goddamn door", for, oh, the past couple of years. It's a song I hear rarely (as I rarely listen to the radio), limited mostly to driving around with my brother (which is also rare). So hooray for finding out the artist of said "goddamn door" song and the title, which is I Write Sins Not Tragedies.
In other news, my dad turned 64 on Friday, my Lush turns ... ahahaha, he turns 30 today! Note to self, call the Lush. Of course, I turn 31 in a couple of weeks, so my amusement is short-lived, but anyways.
Lots of things to do today including, but not limited to:
- going downtown and getting my dad a present and a card
- going to dinner with the family
Those are actually the things I'm looking forward to doing. My life is sad.
As to hockey, the Canadiens' goalie, Carey Price, is, in my opinion, just ordinary and nothing more. Sure, the occasional streak of brilliant play, but that happens to everyone. For crying out loud, Tom Kostopoulous (a grinder/checker, not known as a scorer) scored the winning goal in OT on Thursday. ANYONE can have a great game. So, partly because of Carey Price's ordinary play and Martin Biron's outstanding play (he's the goalie for the Philadelphia Flyers), the Habs are heading to Philly on Monday with the best-of-7 series tied at 1 game each. The only good thing that would come out of a 7-game series is that the 7th game would be played in Montreal the day before my birthday. :P But my parents are not going to buy me playoff hockey tickets for my birthday, so let's win the next four games and get to the conference finals, shall we? :P
Also, if the weather could please DECIDE if it's going to be hot or cold, rainy or dry, I know my sinuses would appreciate it. I went to bed shortly after 1 and woke up, wide awake, thanks to a sinus headache, at 7:30am. So not cool.
