The weekend. Hmm. Pretty lazy actuallyโ€ฆ Spent a fair bit of time coding this weekend: A side flash project and recoding the blog comment form (which should be fixed by later tonight) for unsung. Spent Sunday evening at B.โ€™s sisters. Fun as usual. Her brother-in-law has a slot car set so โ€˜the menโ€™ spent the evening racing โ€˜downstairsโ€™. Saturday B. and I watched The Upside of Anger which I was expecting to be dreadful. In fact, was pretty fun. Costner wasnโ€™t very Costner โ€“ a good thing. I thought it was a decent story told realistically. โญโญโญยฝ

So the Olympics are over. Canada (thanks largely in part to Cindy Klassen) did really well in the world rankings for medals. Not bad for a country of just over 32 million. It looks like 2010 will be decent as we have many rookies that should hit their prime. Impressive also this year were the numerous 4th and 5th place finishes. Still, for me, Menโ€™s hockey is the focal pointโ€ฆ and with their disappointing performance I hope some serious changes are made. Losing in Italy in the first round is one thingโ€ฆ losing in Vancouver in the first round would be unforgivableโ€ฆ
