BeingMe #2

Hello again!

I'm back. This time I'm going to chit chat a little bit about books first. I was thinking about them after Dena, those of you who don't know her, she is my mom's friend's mom, and she's awesome. She also makes amazing pie. Anyway, she said that when she was ten, she swore to read 5,000 books in her lifetime! That's not the craziest thing, she has already read 3,427 books! I have started documenting books that I have read on a website called Good Reads. I have only read 66 different books. But those are only books I remember reading and that isn't including how many times I've read them, I've read the Harry Potter series around 5 times. That's like 21,000 pages, I take a lot of pride in that. I know you guys are all wondering if I read Charlotte's Web, and I did. It really was a very good book and I enjoyed reading it. I was sad at the end, but I still enjoyed it.

This is an unrelated fact that I want to post. I got a hat trick! It was my first ever, but I've only played 1 year before this. Don't worry, there will be more hat tricks to come. I have now scored 10 goals in 7 games. YAY!

Okay, let's talk about Christmas. I am really excited because I get two Christmas dinners! I mean... spend time with two sides of the family. And that's not the only thing, I'm also going to Florida! That is why I'm getting two different dinners. One in Ottawa, the other in Florida. For the Florida dinner we are having alligator. Just kidding, I have to say that because with this family, you never know. For presents, I'm not really sure what I want. I haven't thought about it much. I will probably just end up asking for money. Christmas is my favorite holiday, followed by Thanksgiving, then my birthday. "How do I rank my holidays?" you ask. I mainly consider the amount and quality of the food I get at the family dinners, Christmas beats Thanksgiving because I also get gifts and the cookie exchange. Yes, I know, a very good rating plan.
That is all I have to say today.

The question of the blog is: What is your favorite holiday?

My family....Christmas and what a great venue...Florida, great weather and gator pie. Really look forward to your posts Adam, and I just received news of HT number 2. Got to love those, as the contract you sign for the NHL will be huge, especially when Chicago starts bidding for your services......
My favorite holiday....has to be the birthdays of MY boys and all the grandchildren.Although not a formal holiday, those are very very special days to me, and I reflect and celebrate them in my own way, just thinking of all the things/accomplishments that each one has made, and the individuals that they have become.
Keep up the great blog, very interesting, and informative,so well done....lots of luv...Grampy P
