Played my first game of floor hockey last night. It was so much fun, why haven't I played since grade school? The plastic blade is going to take some getting used to, as well as the 3 0n 3. I kept wanting to play wing and had to remind myself to use the full gym. I made one stunning pass from deep behind the net to feed one of our guys a sweet goal...almost made up for the horrible pass I made in front of our net that almost resulted in a goal against us.

The team looks to be a great bunch who always play hard then go out for a couple of well deserved beers. It turns out the captain works in my building and a few of them live in my hood. DS and his girlfriend A (don't know her last name yet) have been really great to me. I'm noticing that all of the Easterners are very welcoming to the newly transplanted and go out of their way to include me in any activities they plan. One guy is bringing me yoga passes to his girlfriend's yoga studio next week and A said she'd give me a call to hang out this weekend. I have to say I've been been very fortunate to hook up with so many great people out here. It has made the transition much easier.

I assume that when you say "easterner" you mean "Ontarian", right? Like, faux easterner? As in, not really all that east in the grand scheme of things?

You Upper Canadians...

It's what they call anyone east of the Rockies I think. I struggled at first but now...I have embraced it.
