I was at a reastaurant the other day. We sat inside and the booth we were in has a window that looks onto the patio. I'm talking to D and glancing out the window when I see two guys that were sitting there jump over the glass fence and take off. Turns out they ran out on their $75.00 bill. I know stuff like that happens often. It still blows me away to see it. I don't understand people that would do that. Most people know that the waitress that gets walked out on ends up having to pay for the bill. How can people actually do that to someone??

On a happier note. MG comes home tonight. I haven't seen him in about a week and a half. I'm so excited to get to see him tonight. He also might come with me to the lake tomorrow. It's my nieces birthday and we're celebrating at their cabin. He isn't sure because he'd be meeting a whole lot of people all at once. I told him it was up to him but that I'd like him to come so we'll see.

I still am not liking my job. Still planning on looking for a new one.

Since I haven't been online at work I'm finding it difficult to find time to blog. I haven't had a whole lot say either. Still don't so it's going to be another rambling post.

MG has been gone for almost a week. I miss him. I really don't like not being able to see him when I want. I'm sure with time and getting used to it that it'll become easier. I'm so excited for our weekend trip to the mountains in July. Only a week and a half to go!

The weather has been gorgeous the last couple of days. Some say too hot. I am loving it. My office though is too hot. No air conditioning.

I went out with a friend this evening. She's the one that bought me the shoes and skirt. Today she gave me a bear that is wearing a shirt that says 'someone at the U of A loves me'. She is taking engineering at the university. Again... she totally spoils me.

We went for a walk near her house today. We decided to go looking for a lake that her parents found when they went for a walk. So off we went. We walked and walked and didn't see it. We stopped and asked people. They told us the general direction. Finally while I was on the phone with MG she stopped and asked another group of people. A boy told her which way to go and then mentioned that if you turn down the green boatway you're going the wrong way. If you go the other way you can see it plain as day.

We continued on in the direction he gave... walking and walking and walking. We ended up at a dead end. No green boatway (what the heck is a green boatway anyway) and no lake. We did end up finding a kind of swamp. After the swamp we headed back to her house. Even though we never found the lake we were looking for we had a great time. We were both very hyper from slurpee sugar rushes. Without the sore feet I don't think I would have realized that a short walk turned into a 2 hour one.

I hate baggage from previous relationships. A new relationship should be free from things another person said or did. It shouldn't influence how we feel about a situation in a new relationship. Recently I got annoyed with MG. The reason for the annoyance is something that probably wouldn't have been such an issue if it hadn't brought up past feelings in a different relationship. I feel bad that because of something done/said in the past it effected my reaction to what was done/said the other night. Poor MG was wondering why things were weird all of a sudden. In my need to hide how I feel and not want to confront my feelings I didn't think about it or talk about it. Which I'm sure only made him wonder more. After leaving him and heading home I took the long way. I made myself figure out why I was so bothered. I was planning on talking to him about it but since he left today I didn't want to get into it when he stopped by to say goodbye.

He phoned me later and brought it up. Asked why things are weird. So I explained why. Of course now because of my insecurities I'm all worried he is going to like me less. I don't really think that's the case it's just a nagging fear. I'm glad that he asked me to tell him and I'm glad that I did. That's some personal growth for me there.

Past relationship baggage can be good though. One of the things I learned from a previous relationship is that communication is a huge key to a relationship. It is because of that lesson that I made myself think about why I was so bothered so that I'd actually talk/tell him about it rather than just ignore it.

BTW MG said he wasn't reading my blog anymore. I told him it really doesn't bother me if he does. He decided that he didn't want to read it in case I hold back in what I blog. So for now I guess he won't read. I did tell him to go ahead and read it if he changes his mind.

I'm sad to report the Oilers lost. Congrats to you Mystic on your team winning the cup. It was a fun run and I'm very proud of my team for making it as far as they did. Being an eighth seed team making it to game seven of the finals is still quite an accomplishment. As I said before my team always listens to me... it just takes a while... so here is hoping they bring me the cup next year. :)

I am so excited about the game tonight. If the Oilers come out and play like they did on Saturday I don't think we'll have to worry too much. Although I don't count Carolina out yet. They weren't playing as good as they are capable of so it's still very much a toss up.

MG got some of his stuff back. The police called him on Friday to let him know his suitcase and papers for work were left in someones backyard. In an effort to make up for his truck being broken into at my house I did his laundry for him. You know I like the guy when I'm willing (actually happy) to do that. ;)

I'm busier at work and will not be blogging (or checking blogs) as much from here. I will probably be online a little more often from home though so I will still be keeping up with my blog reading and posting.

Game 7 here we come! Oilers won game 6 with a 4-0 shutout.

Before the game started I was talking to some friends about Wednesday game. I of course told them my story about asking for the shorthanded goal. So then I told them this game I ask them to get a shutout for Jussi. My team listened again. Of course as soon as the game was over asked them for the cup. Let's hope they listen to that too. ;)

MG doesn't really like the North end of town. He prefers the Southside. I live in the North end. Last night he stayed over and to give him more reason to not like the North end his truck was broken into. Right outside my house. They took his CDs and a suitcase full of clothes. They also took a briefcase filled with manuals for his job. They left his wallet and satelite radio. I'm guessing he won't be staying over at my house anytime soon.

In other news. He found my blog. I knew when I started it that if I didn't go with a different username it would be easy for people to find. I use Danikabur as my handle for everything. Including my email address. So he decided to google it. He found it a couple weeks ago. The reason I know about it now is because of a little joke that Chris played (which btw I still find funny). He impersonated some of his commenters. It was actually pretty elaborate. He even went so far as to make new blogs for them. MG found 'my' comment and 'new blog'. He was a little suspicious since it was made while I was out of town last week. Last night he started asking me about my trip. If I had been drinking (I had told him before I hadn't) and if there was a computer there. When I asked why he was grilling me on it he told me he saw something online that made him suspicious. I put two and two together and figured out that he knew about my blog.

I guess he has read (or at least skimmed) through pretty much all of it. I am really embarrassed about it. I am also now going to be a little more nervous about posting. I will continue though. You guys just probably won't hear as much about MG. The good thing is he is still around... after reading through that and comments on other sites. He still likes me.

I'm sure he'll read this post too so everyone say hi to MG.

Throughout the season while watching games I'd ask Pisani to score. Almost everytime I'd say 'come on Fernando get a goal for me' he'd score. Sometimes right away and sometimes just by the end of the game. I'd also ask (any player) for shorthanded goals... I'd get those less often but every so often after I'd say that I wanted one they would get one. I wouldn't say either of those every game (hello you've got to ask for favors sparingly...). I'd just randomly say it. Well Monday nights game I was asking. I asked for a shorthanded goal and I asked for Fernando to score. After asking I turned to a friend and explained to him that they listen to me. To his funny look I said 'What? They do.... sometimes it just takes a little while' then I explained what would happen throughout the year (I had a friend there that witnessed it a few times). Turns out it did take a little while but Pisani listened and got me my shorthanded goal. In OT! Fernando will now go down in the NHL history books as the first guy to get a shorthanded goal in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Oilers are still in it with a 4-3 win in overtime. I am so excited. Next game is at home on Saturday. I think Mystic the words you use to describe Carolina can also be used by us. The Oilers are definitely relentless. When you think they've had it they show they haven't. We won't be able to win the cup at home (if we win it... I'm not getting ahead of myself) which is too bad but winning game six will be almost as sweet. Thing is though Carolina will not be easy to beat. They haven't (I could be wrong..) lost two games in a row in the 06 playoffs.

Well back to the old look for now. I kind of liked the top secret folder look. Sarantium is going to change the font around and we'll try it again. I think it's going to be harder to give up this template than I thought though. I have to say a huge thanks to Sarantium for all the work she is doing to try the new templates.

MG had to go back out of town today. Thankfully this trip is only a couple of days so I should be able to see him again soon. Things are still going good and I'm still very happy with him. I really missed him while he was out of town though. It isn't going to be as easy to deal with as I thought. I'll manage though... and I'm sure I'll get used to it.

Got back late Saturday night (or rather early Sunday morning) from Prince George. I had a good time out there. Met some really great people. Hopefully we'll stay in touch. A lot of the guests were from Edmonton. The bride and groom live out here too but it was at her parents place and they live in Prince George. The drive there took us approx. 8 hrs. The drive back took 6. It should take about 9 or 10. I think I need cruise control.

MG got back in town on Friday. He was called out to work yesterday morning. Before I even got to see him. Thankfully he was able to turn the job down and we spent the day together. Hopefully he doesn't end up having to go out again too soon.

Now to hockey. I worked on Wednesday so I didn't watch us get defeated horribly 5-0. I'm thankful. I also didn't get to watch Saturdays game since we were at the wedding. Thankfully I and others had people texting us the score. We won that game 2-1. We play again tonight and I will watch the game tonight. If we pull out another win I will be very happy. if we end up losing the cup I want to at least be able to say we put up a good fight. With Roloson out winning games makes me even more proud of the team.

The new look for the blog. This one won't be staying. I had a friend (Sarantium) trying some new looks. She didn't like this one either but because blogger was giving some trouble she wasn't able to change it. I think she'll be trying the other new look tomorrow. If that one doesn't work out I'll go back to the old look until we find something else.

Oilers:4 Hurricanes:5

Well as sad as it makes me to say this I think Carolina is going to sweep us. Roli the goalie is out for the rest of the season. Unless our backups... who btw we barely got into the playoffs because of become miracle stories. The guys play different in front of them. They play scared. I really hope I'm eating my words by the end of this all. Roli being injured isn't the (only) reason we lost the first game but without Conklin in net for that fifth goal for Carolina we could have won it. Our guys made some pretty huge mistakes though to allow Carolina to tie and then win it.

I can't wait for today to be over. I am looking forward to a few days away from work. From both jobs.

Went out to Yuk Yuk's last night. Had a great time. One of the comedians we had already seen but the other two were new to us. The host was frikkin hilarious. He is going to be the headliner in a couple of weeks. I'm thinking it would be a good idea to head there for that.

I totally miss MG. We talk on the phone a lot. Things are still great with him and I'm totally smitten. I can't explain how I can like a guy so much that I've known for such a short time but I'm definitely falling. It's unbelievable how well he knows me.

Turns out he might be back in town by next weekend. I however will not be in town. I'm heading to Stickys brothers wedding in BC. I'm excited to be heading out on a roadtrip with Sticky but still a little sad that I won't be here (if)when he comes home. Thankfully he shouldn't be called out again for a week so we'll have time before he goes out of town again.

Kids say the funniest things. I was out with my friend yesterday after work. We went to the legislative building to sit and soak up the warmth of the day. We watched people playing in the water for a while then decided it was time to go. There was a guy that had two kids with him sitting near us. I stood up first and was waiting for my friend. I'm chatting with her when I hear one of the kids say "hey, why are you looking at her butt?". I couldn't help but laugh. Poor guy got caught checking out my butt.

I have a new renter. She and I have a lot in common. For example her birthdate is a day after mine. She enjoys 80's music and lame movies and hates feet. Also her name (unless it's an alias) is the same as my real name (other than the a at the end of hers). Go check her site out.

Also I followed in Kals footsteps and had my blog reviewed by the people at I talk too much. The review is not pretty but I asked for it. I pretty much knew it wasn't going to be good. I was hoping for some ideas on how to change my blog. All I got though was Pink (or purpley pink) on black is bad. The top (grey on black) sucks. I also was told talking about hockey is boring. That I should change the title from all about me to all about hockey. I explained that because I'm totally into the playoffs right now and didn't have anything else to blog I figured posting about hockey was better than nothing. I guess not. I was also accused of being a wagon jumper. I support the Oilers (watch every game I can) all throughout the season. That is why them going so far in the playoffs has me so excited I dedicate posts to it... not because I'm only a fan for now. Ah well. That isn't going to change. I know some of my readers do like knowing how my team has done and others have tolerated it. Once playoff time is over I'll be back to my usual posting.

Everyone should still go to their site. Their reviews are often hilarious. They really don't hold back on the critisism either.
