Hockey FAIL

Monday was a bit of a bummer for me.

My wooden CCM stick that I bought from Walmart 3 years ago and cost me $11.26 broke. And it wasn't the shaft, it was the plastic blade!
I wasted 45 min the previous week re-taping the shaft with duct and hockey tape, hehehe. On the bright side, I now know my taping is effective, because I'm cheap. Because I'm Chinese. Cogent? Who cares.

I also somehow tripped myself which trying to check someone from behind. I'm not sure how I tangled myself up, but I wasn't even able to get my hands/arms in front of me to break the fall, so I landed full force on the left side of my body. I really felt an oomph of wind leave my breath as my chest hit the floor. I now have a weird "L" mark/bruise on my left shoulder (I'm not kidding, there's a mark that looks like a triangle with one side missing, hence the "L") and a bruise on my left hip.

And when I got home, I realized I got a splinter from something. Probably from the tables we use as boards. Its hard to see but the cut where it entered my flesh is further up, so the splinter you see there is actually the whole thing lodged under my skin. It wasn't too bad to get out.

Ok I'm done whining now.

Saw gas for 117¢/litre a few days ago and now its at 112¢/litre.
