Anything But Hockey / HELP!!!!! PLEASE......
« on: November 12, 2004, 02:54:09 PM »
FALSE PUBLICITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok here's my situation:

I saw these boots that I really liked at Transit in the Rideau center. They were $79,99.  I thought they were a little expensive (university student here!) so I waited a couple of days and then I decided to go on their website to see if maybe the price had come down, and it had! It said they were now $49,99!!! So I thought it was perfect so I went back to the store, they had my size, I loved them, so I decided to buy them. Little did I know is that they did not seem to know about the new price I had seen on their own website. I had 2 salespeople each tell me that a) maybe I had seen the white ones' price because the white ones were indeed on sale b) maybe I had seen the American price. The fact that I told them that I had seen the price on their Canadian website (both in English and in French... I had checked) did not seem to affect their opinion of the whole situation... I asked them if maybe they could put them on the side for me and I would come back with the proof of what I had seen, but they said no because it was the last pair (which kind of sucked because I really, really wanted them so I didn't want to risk losing them). SO I bought them with the intention of fixing the whole thing to my advantage... and not only that but it's the principle of the whole thing. They can't advertise a price and then ignore it! It's false publicity!!!!!!!!!!!!

So now I'm just wondering what to actually do. My mom's thinking about what to do also, but I know some of you are really bright and might actually know about the legal side of it all, so I thought I could for sure get some help...

The website is http://transitshoes.com and then click on "Transit in Canada-- come on in", then at the top of the page click on "fashion", then "collections", then "girls" ...the it's kinda complicated but to browse the collections you have to use the arrow keys of your keyboard... So for my boots, go to the top row, go to the left and my boots are the second last. They're black and they kinda look like Dr. Martens'. They're called "Ann"  :roll:  And the price is on the right, and they're CLEARLY marked down........

So yeah I could use any help about what to do next. Should I go back to the store or directly call their main office??

Thanks a whole bunch.

AAAARRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH

STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID COUGH THAT'S PREVENTING ME FROM GOING TO SLEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I went to sleep now, I'd sleep 5 hours. But that's if it happened now.  Which isn't happening.  :roll:

Does anyone have ANY idea what I could do/take??  I've already taken 4 222 tablets with codeine when it said only 2 at a time. I've dranked warm milk, herbal tea, water. I'm out of ideas (and out of milk as well, so more of it out of the question).

So I do realize I won't get any answers tonight, but I'm sure my cough will still be there tomorrow night, so I'll know for then.  :evil:  :evil:

Anything But Hockey / What to give my mom for her birthday?
« on: October 29, 2004, 01:46:15 PM »
It's my mom's birthday on the 5th and my brothers and I have NO idea what to get her.  Books and CDs are boring... we always end up getting her that.  Gift certificates are always an option, though not an original one, but at least she can get what she wants.  :?   Things we've already gotten her in the past years: gift certificate for a massage, books, CDs, picture frames (lol), flowers, paintings (not ours.... bought).....  This summer we bought our dad a 75$ gift certificate for the National Arts Center, which he loved and which my mom thought was an excellent idea....... So there's that, except it really will look like we had no idea what to get her.  Which is true.

So here's some info about my mom :P :

-She's turning 54
-She's into music
-She's into books
-She likes nature
-She has an Echo (ok that's useless but I'm out of things to say)

Do you guys have any ideas??? It'd be greatly appreciated... Thanks  :D

       That you can love a lot of people in a lot of different ways.

       No matter how 'cool' you were in high school, no one here cares.


       That if you wear polyester everyone will ask why you are so dressed up.

       That every clock on campus shows a different time.


       That if you were smart in high school, so what? It doesn't matter here.

       That I would go to a party the night before a final.


       That Labs/Art studios take up more time than all my other classes put together.

       That you can know everything and fail a test.


       That you can know nothing and ace a test.

       That I could get used to almost anything found out about my roommate.


       That most of my education would be obtained outside of class.

       That friendship is more than getting drunk together.


       That I would be one of those people that my parents warned me about

       That Sunday is a figment of the world's imagination.


       That Psychology is really Biology. That Biology is really Chemistry, that Chemistry is really Physics and that Physics is really Math.

       That my parents would become so much smarter in the last few years.


       That it's possible to be alone even when friends surround you.

       That friends are what make this place worthwhile!

« on: August 04, 2004, 03:18:00 PM »
lol it's not really an argument, more of a discussion.  It's simple, really. The thing is, we're wondering whether or not they ever found John F. Kennedy Jr.'s body after his plane had crashed?  He died alongside his wife Carolyn and her sister Lauren.

If any of you know it, it would help. Thanks!  :D

Anything But Hockey / Very weird: The Julie Bureau Story
« on: July 27, 2004, 10:21:16 AM »
Has anyone else followed this whole thing?  It's weird.  For those of you who haven't, Julie Bureau is a 17 year old who has been reported missing for 3 years.  She was found last week in a town less than an hour away from her parents' house and she was living with a 38 year old man.  The thing is, she refused to see her parents (she since then did) and they really didn't seem that thrilled that she had been found.  During a press conference yesterday, she said that for her, it was either running away or commiting suicide.  She's now going back to the 38 year old man's house.

She didn't call her parents ONCE during these 3 years.... she must've had a really bad life with them to do that.  There's something really fishy under this that we don't know, that's for sure.  Maybe her dad abused her or something.

Anyways, that's all for now.  I just wanted to know if any of you had heard of this.   That's all we've been hearing about here in Québec for the past week and a half.

Anything But Hockey / The Official "Name your phobias" Thread
« on: June 23, 2004, 09:17:00 PM »
lmao I thought I'd pitch in.

So here are my phobias:

-Breaking my neck/ back
-Drowning
-Getting something in my eyes / having them poked.... pretty much anything that has to do with my eyes, basically
-Having something amputated/cut off
-Getting out of a fire alive and having to live with my face/body burnt really bad

And last but not least, (this being elections time and all)

-Having a Conservative government...

LMAO I'm just kidding.... Please don't take this the wrong way. I just had to put this in for the sake of it.  Let me tell you that I would rather the last one happened 54676891223 times before having anything of the things mentionned above done to me.

What about you?

(Please don't let this be another elections thread  :lol:  )

Oh, and there are no rules.  Just post away!

Sens Talk / James Duthie's column
« on: April 01, 2004, 09:31:34 AM »
I didn't know whether to put this in General NHL Discussion or in here.  I know it doesn't look like it's about the Sens, but there's a certain question that is ALL about the Sens......... If you can find it; it's not really hard.  :lol:   It's a really funny column, as always.......he's a genious!!!!  8)

http://www.tsn.ca/columnists/james_duthie.asp

Quote
Duthie: Viewer Mail
Between the endless Viagra and Penis Enlargement SPAM I get (Seriously, do you get these too? And if not, what are the SPAM GODS trying to tell me?), I get a lot of questions from you, my beloved readers. And I appreciate all seven of you.

For the sake of avoiding having to email the same answers over and over (read: lazy), I have decided to periodically respond to some of your frequently asked questions, in lieu of writing an actual column (read: really freakin' lazy).

All answers are final. No appeals.

Who should I pick in my playoff pool?

Look, You're asking a guy who last year told everyone who'd listen to "Load up on Wings and Leafs! It's a no-brainer!" Which was the hockey equivalent of saying: "Gigli will sweep the Oscars!"

The playoffs are like the Super 7 now (See: Ducks, Wild). Picking winners is like going to a sperm bank…You just don't know which seed is going to get through. So when I say go heavy on Lightning and Stars, you may as well say: "Give me all Isles!"

Or do like the monkey: Spin a wheel. Speaking of which…

Will Maggie the Monkey be back on your playoff broadcasts?

This is a painful issue. Truth is, Maggie's fame came far too fast last year, and her Macaquian life has been in a downward spiral since. Clubbing, drugs…She basically became the primate Corey Feldman. However, if she gets out of the "clinic" in time, and a deal can be worked out with her "handlers", we'd love to have the monkey back. Despite the fact she frequently pees on my shoe.

Pray for her.

Will there be NHL hockey next year?

Yes.

…On ESPN Classic Canada. Besides that, no shot.

Is your studio as big as it looks on TV?

Yes.  The square footage is roughly equal to…Peru.  It's actually the same studio they used for all those old CTV shows like "Circus", "Bizarre" and "Shirley!"  In fact, when the guys in the crew went through some old boxes at the back of the studio, they found Dini Petty.

What is Jennifer Hedger really like?

The bosses will probably kill me for this, but Jennifer Hedger doesn't exist. If you've seen the movie S1m0ne with Al Pacino (By the way: Al, what the hell were you thinking?), it's basically the same concept.  "Jennifer" is a computer-designed hologram. When I am seen standing next to "her", I am really alone in front of a blue screen. The 3-D image is projected using CGI technology. It's basically the same way the creatures were added to Lord Of The Rings in post-production. Her comments are prepared and inputted in advance by a team of writers. Frequently used comments like: "You're an idiot James!" are available on demand with the touch of a key. It works the same way on Sportscentre. I am frankly shocked that you all bought it. This is Television, people! Nothing is real.

Do you ever show any personal bias towards teams?

Absolutely not.

Do you ever get bored and play that game where the first letter of every word forms a secret message?

Something entirely nonsensical?  Seldom.  Rarely useful little exercise.  

Who is the favorite guest you've had on the NHL on TSN?

Pick 'em: Doug Gilmour, Adam Graves, Cam Neely, Mike Bossy, Bryan Trottier, Paul Stewart, Ron Wilson, Bobby Smith, Tiger Williams, Kris Draper. Basically, anyone who doesn't sucker punch me, I adore.

How do I get into broadcasting?

You should enroll in a journalism or broadcasting program, and get as much experience as you can. Volunteer at the campus radio station…whatever it takes.

Or sleep with Vic Rauter.

(Obviously, I'm kidding…broadcasting programs never work).

How did you build that chiseled physique?

Okay, no one has ever asked that. But if one of you could, it would mean a lot.

Sens Talk / MAJOR rant (regarding playoff tickets)
« on: March 22, 2004, 01:57:34 PM »
Ok I don't really know if this belongs in here since it IS about the Sens but at the same time it's not REALLY about the Sens.. hmmm.

Anyways here it goes. This morning I went to Sports Experts here in Hull. I got there at 9:30 (I had no idea what to expect, if there was going to be a line or what.... turned out I was third in the "line" like 7.) So yeah, first of all, the stupid girl took allllllll her freakin time to write on the computer what the first man wanted, which was already pissing me off because 5 minutes had past, then she was waiting for the first tickets to print for like 3 or 4 minutes because for some reason the printer was not working properly (THIS morning of ALL mornings???????). So then she tells a woman who'd gotten there LATER than me that it's her turn (she ended up buying 3 club seats for the first two games.... cost like 950$  :shock: ).  Once again, she acts as if she has all the time in the world.  So yeah, at like 10:15, it's FINALLY my turn.  I ask for 2 for the second game in the coca-cola zone, but she tells me they're all gone, so then I ask for the cheapest in the GM zone, she tells me the cheapest they have is 35$, and I'm like "hmmm that's impossible" so she checks again and says "oops I was looking at the regular season prices  The cheapest we have left is 75$ and it's section 302, row K".. I'm like "WTF??" and I ask her to check again if there wouldn't be by any chance ANYTHING cheaper, anywhere.  She says no, so I buy the damn tickets (costs me 160,50$.... I'm a student who works less than 10 hours a week at 7,75$ an hour, dammit.....).  I storm out, and I'm about to get my keys and I see the guy who was behind me in line already coming out of the store (what? it took her 2 minutes for him?), so I ask him what he got, and he says that he bought 2 44$ tickets for the second game...... He's in 302 as well, row P (that's 5 rows behind me).  At this point, I'm not a very happy person, but I try to calm down. I then see a elderly couple who were behind the guy in line, and I ask then what they got, and they tell me they have 2 44$ tickets for the second game.......  At that point, I was trying to think of a solution to get rid of the tickets I had bought, so I go back inside, and I ask the woman to see if she has any 44$ tickets left, and he says no.  Good thing, cuz then I figured nobody would want to buy mine cuz they suck so much.

So I'm a very pissed off girl right now.  I can't believe how much I got screwed.  How did this incompetent like this end up doing such an important job as selling playoff tickets???????

General Hockey Discussions / ESPN's "The Season" on the Avs
« on: February 23, 2004, 11:08:18 AM »
Last night I watched ESPN's "The Season" on the Avalanche, which aired on TSN, and I really liked it. I'd never heard of that series, which from what I saw follows one sports team for one season... last night was part 1, and it was narrated by James Hetfield.  

It showed some players at home, or at the store, and the team's Halloween party (H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!!)...... they keep picking on Kariya! lmao

Has anyone else seen it? I wouldn't have watched hadn't my brother asked me to tape it because of James Hetfield narrating it.  Ended up being really interesting!

General Hockey Discussions / How would you describe the game of hockey?
« on: February 22, 2004, 10:05:10 AM »
Note to moderators: I wasn't sure in which forum to put this in, so feel free to move it if you feel it belongs in another forum.

How would you describe the game of hockey?  What words would you use that could describe the its "beautifulness"? Are there such words? Are words such as "exciting" and "beautiful"  powerful enough to describe what hockey is like?

In one word or one sentence, what's hockey to you?

1- I mean, no one can argue, scoring in his first game with a new team has to give Bondra some confidence and will ease his transition for sure.  Good for him.

2- Schaefer has a way to score incredible goals... he was at 180 degrees with the goal line! How the hell did that go in?  :shock:  :D  It's always great to see goals like that being scored.

Incredible second period.  Let's hope will keep it up.  I'm confident.

Sens Talk / what's with all the Alfie booing?

is it still about the fake stick throw?  It's funny anyways.  It's super automatic... reminds me of when Yashin comes back to town!

Other than that, a pretty exciting game so far.. It's weird to see Domi wearing a visor, but I think it's a mature thing to do. I hope he keeps it (more for the example he sets than for his safety... lol).
