Not To Be Trusted With Knives

… and I’m still in the tub! (25 points to whoever gets that obscure reference!)

UPS has notified me that my glorious, glorious shoes have an ETA of May 11. Kinda sucks that I have plans to go out on May 10 and was hoping that I’d be able to wear them on that occasion, but such is life. I’ll just have to make more plans to go out again once the shoes have arrived. Apparently my shoes left Baldwin, CA at 21:50 today and arrived in LA at 22:14. Isn’t technology wonderful — I can get a minute-by-minute update of exactly where my shoes are!* Although it does seem odd that it is going to take them 6 days to get to Vancouver from LA — is the UPS delivery person going to be walking here in them? Don’t these people have planes??

And speaking of planes, I just booked a flight to Ontario today! I’m going for my last ever, all-expenses paid trip to London, ON for a Let’s Talk Science conference from June 9-11. And then, since my thesis will be out of my hands at that point and I’ll have nothing to do but wait, I will be spending two weeks in the T dot. I’m VERY excited to see my neice, Madeline, the greatest baby that ever lived (not that I’m biased or anything). And, of course, my other family and friends, who are also cool. Anyone who wants to see me while I’m in ON should speak now or forever hold their peace**.

And speaking of ON, I caught the end of the Senators game while having dinner at Nevermind tonight. I nominate Volchenkov as an honourary Canuck for the worst OT giveaway I’ve EVER seen! Plus, he’s ugly enough to be an honourary the Sedin twin.

And speaking of the Canucks, we signed Luc Bourdon, our 2005 1st round draft pick, yesterday. While he certainly doesn’t up the Canucks’s hotness quotient, he’s a pretty good player so I’m glad to have him on board.

*And yet we still have no cure for the common cold. Nor for ARM or ARE.
