Here’s what I did today : woke up very late and then watched some Star Trek : DS9. I’ve just completed the 2nd season of this great series. After that, it was surfing online, drinking coffee and then watching videos on Youtube. By 11:30 am it was time to take a shower and then call up the office to check as to what’s happening there. By 12:30 I was heading over to Barista cafe for a late breakfast.
I had a Swiss Mocha frappe and a smoked chicken sandwich. The coffeeshop was very crowded today and I almost didn’t get a seat. Unfortunately, their Wifi was down and they also chose to play some really shitty songs. Like, one of the dumbest songs I have ever heard, ‘My Hump’ by the Blackeyed Peas! But just on cue, this chick with a really nice hump came and posed at the counter.
After spending enough time there to read a few chapters of a book, I then headed over to the barber shop and cup my mess of a hair. I am losing a lot of hair on the top but it grows quite a lot on the back and over my ears. In this hot climate, it’s not good to keep it long. So a nice shorty back & side later, I was headed over to Velocity for some White Mischief vodka and a biriyani for lunch.
A couple of hours there and 4 drinks later, I came back home for a lite snooze and more sci-fi.
The Ottawa Senators have traded young defenceman Alexandre Picard to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for center Matt Cullen.
Acting as soon as his contract been extended GM, Brian Murray made a couple of changes to his squad which is doing very well at the moment. Cullen, who has 12 goals and 28 assists in 60 games played this season, could be a boost to the Senators 27th ranked power-play, as he spent time in Carolina playing at the point on their power-play unit. The 33-year old Minnesota native, who won a Stanley Cup with the Hurricanes in 2005-06, has 165 goals and 288 assists in 859 games played.
Then, the team announced it is waiving the underachieving Jonathan Cheechoo, who arrived in Ottawa last summer from San Jose in the Dany Heatley deal. The move means Cheechoo’s days with the Senators are over.
