Woke up after a very eventful night. Natalie had mentioned the night before that he thought there was a mouse in our room because she had woken up to a rustling noise near the garbage can. Whe she got up there was nothing there of course. I had woken up and wondered wtf she was doing, but I just rolled over and went back to sleep. So last night I DEFINITELY woke up and hear a noise... But I didn't want to wake her up. So I got my iphone to use as a flashlight, but I couldn't see anything and as soon as the light was near where the sound had been, it stopped. A minute later it started again so I started going "ppssssssst! Natalie!!!!" trying not to scare the mouse but trying to wake her up at the same time, She started to stir and I said:There's something down there!!" Which she later told me is not a good thing to say to someone you had just woken up in the middle of the night. We had been talking about scary movies and creepy stuff for bed so she didn't know what to think.
Anyway... it was a long night.... I woke up soooo tired and we went for breakfast. Then I came back and went on kijiji in search of Canucks ticket for the game tonight. I managed to score one pretty easily. It was a $235 ticket and I got ift for $70. Win!
After I met the guy to get the ticket I took a walk around Gastown and Chinatown and took some pictures. I ended up pretty close to the arena so I took a walk by there. It was cold and rainy and I was freezing and trying really really hard not to get sick, so I decided t head back to the hostel. It was after 3 anyway and I was supposed to meet Natalie and go for dinner at 4:45 anyway.
So I took a very minor nap and tried to get warm, then we went to the Cambie for spaghetti dinner. After that I went straight to the arena because it was just super close. I was waaaay early, which has never happened to me at an NHL game before. The doors opened at 6 and I was one of the first people in our special gate. Yes my ticket was THAT good apparently.. haha... So I watched the warmup and say my first ever 1st period of an NHL game in person haha go me!
The game was unreal. Van won 4-1. They were playing Columbus. Columbus' only goal was short handed and they had a TON of shots. I think schneider made 47 saves. And a couple of Vancouver's goals were really reeeealy nice. So it was a great game. I also made friends with a random Australian guy who randomly bought me beer.... but what else is new.. After that I went back to the hostel and crawled into bed.
