Hoo boy. Am I gonna be in trouble today.

I can't blog about the Quyon Flyers' first playoff game last night. After I promised and vowed, particularly in the case of a win, to give them main-page exposure in Jill's World, I can't follow through. I have to go back on my word, and this is sure to upset Kenny.

I can't blog about the Flyers, 'cause I didn't even go to the game.

I know, I know. What kind of a fan am I? Here they are, in the playoffs, and the first game actually at home, and I missed it.

What's more, I know I'm going to take some ridicule for the reason I missed the game.

I can partly blame karate, actually, because I did go to karate, and by the time I was done, I was absolutely wiped. I couldn't have imagined going down to the ball park and sitting in the bleachers when I all I wanted to do was collapse on the couch.

However, the other reason for just going home was because I had to watch "The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants". Yes, that's right. I actually admitted it. Because I've been invited by a friend to go see the sequel on Thursday, and I hadn't seen the first one, so I had to go home and watch it last night, because I won't have time to watch it due to my ball game tonight.

Lame? Indeed. But the truth nonetheless.

However, I'm quite happy to report that the lads fared well against their first round opponent Manotick, with the final score 7-1 in Quyon's favour. Other than that, I really can't comment.

But if anyone wants to know anything about "The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants", please let me know. I can fill you right in.

Oh, and for those of you following my woeful summer watching Canadian Idol - my second favourite behind Sebastian, Mookie Morris, was voted off the show last night. I wasn't quite as pissed as I was when Sebastian was eliminated, but I was still irked. I know the final group of guys competing are all worthy singers and musicians, but I have a big problem with Mitch McDonald and Drew Wright outlasting Mookie. In my mind, they are nowhere near being as talented as Mookie. This fan voting business is really starting to rub me the wrong way...

The good news for Mookie? He narrowly avoids the Anne Murray theme for next week. Now that should be interesting - four young guys taking on Anne Murray hits, under her guidance. Who the heck was the brains behind that idea???

and how did you find the travelling pants? i thought it was kinda of a stupid movie i guess - i actually thought it was like a low budget sorta movie but apparently not if they made a 2nd - i would see the 2nd but i can wait till it comes to video or dish!
Hope you enjoyed it Jill - its too cold at night anyways to sit and watch ball!

I didn't like the first movie, to be honest, I didn't find that it followed the same story line the books did.

I do think that the sequel looks better and follows the story line of the last book a little more accurately... just my 2 cents.

I actually really liked the movie! Maybe a little "juvenile", but I laughed and cried and fell in love with a hot Greek guy (whoever played Kostos in the movie - YUM!) I haven't read the books, and I didn't have my hopes too high, so I enjoyed it in the end, and looking forward to seeing the sequel tonight! :)

Sorry, I'm reading this a day later, but Jill don't you always fall in love with a hot guy in every movie you see? LOL
