It's February, which let's face it isn't often the best month so I decided it would be fun to make a list of the things that are making me happy right now! fyi: Things are going okay for me, it's just a busy, stressful time at work. Now, onto the good things:

My happy list )

So, tell me what's making you happy right now!! *g*

Curling is fun! Seriously.

I went Curling last night and it was so much FUN!! When I tried it in high school, I found it cold and boring. But I think that was because I was afraid to fall on the ice and look foolish. Now that I’m older and have lots of experience looking stupid and foolish, I’m comfortable looking silly which is what made it so fun.

As a result of the fun, I’m all sore and bruised on my right hip because I’d fall over basically every time I’d throw the rock (I suspect “throwing the rock” isn’t the correct term). Even though I exercise regularly, a lot of my muscles are sore from all the sweeping.

I didn’t find it cold because I bought some snuggly warm sweatpants and hoodie from Roots. Buying new clothes and then getting to show them off makes me very happy!! Even though it’s blatant advertising, I like that the sweatpants have Roots written on the butt because they draw attention to my ass. I like my ass. I know that sounds all conceited, but it’s so hard to find the body love that it’s fun to have at least one part of my body that I think is cute!!!!

I actually have photographic evidence of me curling!! If you know anything about curling, you’ll be horrified by my bad form and understand why I kept falling on every shot. I'm not falling in this picture because my hand is on the ice.

Me curling. Oh yeah, and my ass is in the picture. )

The other entertaining part of the evening was realizing how bizarre my co-workers and I seem to others. Our instructor asked a couple of us where we work because we’re such an “eclectic bunch.” See, my office is really gay! No, seriously. I’d say 99% of us are queer folks, and the content of our work is also gay. I suspect that the curling club in east Toronto had never seen a group quite like us. Super femmey and ultra masculine gay men. Sporty dykes (if you turned on Women’s Golfing and saw some of my co-workers, you’d think “total Lesbian”), and very Toronto urban dykes (I was trying to think of anyone in the media who has the same style, and the only one who comes close is Shane on “The L Word”). There’s also a prominence of piercings, tattoos, multi-coloured hair and army pants.

My co-workers really relished yelling “Hard” or “You know you like it hard” to the sweepers. We all fell down more than once and would laugh at each other (cause we're mature). Fun, fun times.

Because of the extreme amount of gayness on the rink, it reminded me of [ profile] moosesal’s fun Spike/Xander curling story Your House or Mine.

In conclusion, I like curling. I may actually do it again!!

BSG 2.17, Curling and My Grandpa

I’m probably the only person happy that none of my shows were new last night, because I actually had time to catch up on a couple of the shows I’m behind on like Battlestar Galactica.

BSG ‘The Captain’s Hand’ (2:17) )

This episode makes me want to run out and convince everyone I meet to watch BSG. But then I’d just turn into those guys who stand at the corner of Yonge and Dundas (busy intersection in Toronto) and proselytize about Jesus.

Unrelated to BSG, I may have lost my mind but I’ve agreed to go curling with my co-workers. I went curling a couple of times back in high school and found it boring and cold. But the allure of alcohol and fun co-workers has persuaded me to try again. This decision has me feeling very Canadian right now.

Speaking of Canada, I watched the Canadian Women’s Hockey team win the gold medal on Monday with my grandpa. It wasn’t as exciting as the game between them and the U.S. in the last Olympics, but oddly enjoyable to watch a sport that Canada completely dominates (there was no doubt in my mind that Canada would win).

My grandpa used to coach hockey when he was young so we discussed the excellent technical skills of the Canadian team (he was very impressed). There was some nostalgia on his part but I got a kick out him liking the women’s team better than the men’s. Unfortunately I couldn’t obviously check out the cute girls and make comments like: “I’d totally do her,” or “She’s a total dyke” because saying that to my grandpa …AWKWARD!!

I’m still entertained that my grandpa – who’s 90 years old - likes Legally Blonde! He also mentioned he enjoyed Miss Congeniality!! I’d worry that this means his mind is getting less sharp, but I approve of enjoying a good girl-power type comedy so I’m not worried! Maybe I should hook him with Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion next?!!

ETA: I just watched the Canadian Men's Hockey team lose to Russia. No medal for the men. *shakes head*
