I want to go back to the little grass shack in Kealakekua, Hawaii...

I am a 3rd generation Washington native with some Canuck roots, but most of the rest of the family is pretty new to the States.

I love to travel especially to Hawaii, which I get homesick for even though I've never actually lived there in this life. Hopefully I'll be going to Paris again soon, as I fell in love with the city on my first trip. Someday, I hope to retire to one or the other with my very young studly husband. :D I also love to learn new languages and try new cuisines, especially Indian and Japanese. My day is made with a large chef's choice platter of gleaming fresh fish or a thali filled with all sorts of tasty treats.

I started my life long obsession with hockey and most other sports thanks to my mom. She watched Mariner, Seahawk and Sonic games with us; as well as Hockey Night in Canada, being blessed with living close enough to the border to get it. I have been a huge Canucks for a very long time, more recently became a Ducks fan when Teemu was there the first time; and just in the last couple of years the Everett Silvertips have become my little brothers down the street. I've followed the Mariners since 1983 and have just in the last few years appreciated the greatness of Phillies.

So, in a nutshell, if you love hockey, hockey boys and even don't mind those hockey boys kissing each other from time to time, we might just have something in common.

Vancouver Canucks are piles and piles of puppies
