Tomorrow afternoon I'm flying to Santiago for work. It's going to be a three week crash course in Spanish, as I'll be basically the only person in the office that speaks English. I'm going to take a spanish text book with me and try to learn as much as I can when I'm not working. The weather down there yesterday was 29 degrees, so it should be great to see Santiago in the summer (Dayna and I were there last fall).
I was given my Great Uncle Doug's desk a few weeks ago, and just completed refinishing it. The desk had a number of rings, dings, and pits to it, but after sanding it down, restaining, and a couple coats of polyurethane it looks as good as new.
Since I'll be in away I'll be missing the first few weeks of the NHL regular season which really sucks (especially as I missed the playoffs last year). To avoid going too long without hockey Dayna and I picked up scalper tickets to the preseason game on Sunday. It was great to see Luongo in a Canucks uniform, and I can't wait for the season and my hockey pools to get started.
Ciao for now.
