Woo-hoo! We won our playoff game last night. The other team came out really hard in the first period. They really REALLY wanted to beat us. They scored the first goal in the first. We scored another to tie and they scored again before the end of the period. So, down 1-2 in the second, we scored 4 unanswered goals making it 5-2. We scored again in the third, and they scored once again with 1 second remaining. The final was 6-3. We now go into a best of three championship series starting next Saturday. Last summer we made it to the championship game and lost (there's only one championship game - not 3 - in the summer). Hopefully, we'll pull it out this season and win the cup (which they will let us touch for about 5 minutes before they take it back again).

Last night, I switched cars with a team mate so I could use his truck today to go pickup my scooter. I'm not sure what year his Toyota truck is, but I will say I didn't know they still made vehicles with manual everything. Manual transmission, manual seats, windows, and I think only one speaker working. Oh...and the best part was that the steering was not power steering. I've been getting quite a workout turning that wheel! The truck is actually in pretty decent shape inside and out - just all manual. Don't get me wrong - Tam's a great guy and really helped me out by loaning me his truck - I just didn't realize until I was shifting my way home last night what a car snob I have become. Yes, I'm embarrassed to say it but I appear to be a car snob. (This is where I hang my head in shame). I am, however, the owner of a 2007 Yamaha Vino 125 scooter! Yippee!

Now, I'm tired and full of a gigantic piece of chocolate fudge cake from The Hamlet and am going to bed.

I've always wanted to ride a scooter, they look like so much fun! Congrats on your new purchase!

Its amazing how when you get used to nice things aka a nice car you don't want to downgrade ever again!

I borrow my brother's 92 Nissan truck when I need to pick up my Xmas tree etc. I drove a stick for years, so I still think that is fun, but the lack of power steering is a pain in the rear!

Congrats on the win

Scooters are fun, and really good on gas. This should save you a bundle of cash by the end of the year, Tiff.
