Long time no see
But I'm incredibly sorry that after saying I'd be back, I was silent for almost a whole week :o It's not even my fault, at least: we didn't have proper internet connection until today, so it wasn't just you I was neglecting...
Special shout-out goes to my friend Denise, who I knew through other means but had no idea was reading this blog :o Like whoa, is this world small...
First of all, the hockey game: It was amazing! Vancouver won 5-1, but the whole thing was marred by the fact that one of the Creepy Swedish Twins was checked into the board, and then lay on the ice. Both teams were really decent about it, though; they were standing in a circle around Daniel (the twin lying on the ice), so even my dad and I—sitting diagonally across from where it happened—couldn’t see what was going on.
But let me tell you one thing: I had a clear shot of Daniel lying on the ice by the boards while play was still going on next to him, and I will never forget that moment of startling clarity I had when I knew something was seriously wrong: he was lying on the ice, and instead of trying to get up like I’ve seen every hockey player to this date try at least, he was just—just flapping his hands helplessly, and it may have been one of the most horrible sights in my life…
Other than that, it was really great--fast, and we had pretty good seats...
And talking about hockey... You know where we are? In Kelowna already!
Which means we're here in time for the playoffs, so we're catching a game tomorrow.
We meant to stop on the way, especially in Revelstoke, but let's just put it like this: either the RV parks we looked at were too small, or the town was more than scary. I didn't know that there were this many almost-ghost towns up here :o But there are, and we didn't want to stay any longer than we had to. So now we're staying in Kelowna for a whole week (pretty much exactly), hitting it off with visiting my host family tomorrow to say Happy Birthday to my host mom.
The funniest thing happened today, though!
We went to Prospera Place to get tickets for tomorrow (second row! I'm so happy we still got them, because most of the good tickets are gone; for today, for example, only single tickets were still available), and you know who we saw on the bus? The new host girl my family has!
The conversation we couldn't help but overhear (since she and her friend were talking very loudly, very detailed in German) is nothing I could repeat on here, made for a very amusing drive nonetheless.
We thought we might stay in Armstrong yesterday, but that was one case of 'too small'--one good thing did come of it, though, because I recognised it! From the fair I went to with my first host family last year! That was pretty cool, and kinda weird, too.
I know this is kinda all over the place, but please forgive me; it's been a long week already. We went shopping in Vancouver, and I spent a couple hundred dollars, which may be the most I've spent, ever. I really love most of the stuff I bought, though, so it was entirely worth it (especially a men's sweater I picked up from American Eagle's sales racket, which is super comfy and too big--or maybe super comfy because it's too big :D). I simply love American Eagle, what can I do? :D
I'll have to go and write a German essay today--analysis and comparison of two horrible, horrible German Romantic poems--and at some point we want to eat a Quesadilla, but other than that, I have remarkably little to do... well, there is a long HP fanfic waiting for me (205k; it said eight hours when I began, but I still have almost five left and have spent more than five on it already, I'm sure... it's delightfully long and well written, for the most part!).
As for our plans... There's the game tomorrow, then we'll go to Osoyoos, maybe Fintry (which is a national park up here), one day (my birthday!) is reserved for visiting KSS and then going out to dinner in the evening, and then we'll see what we'll do with the rest of the time we have here. But it's not that much, which is kinda weird :o
Anyway, I have to beg off now, school work calls (ugh -_-)
Have a great time <3 br="">3>
