    • What do you mean it's over already!?!

      Well well well. How's everybody doing? How was your summer? I came to the sad realization that summer is over when I damn near caught pneumonia at an outdoor press conference this morning. On sunday, the weather was lovely and warm... and by today it was time to pull out the gloves. Great.

      Ah well, they say that nothing lasts forever.

      The first half of my summer was essentially finding and buying a home. That was a hell of a thing. After all that dust settled I managed to take some 'me' tima as well as some time to hang out with my (partially, but in a good way) crazy family.

      First off was Grandma's 90th birthday. We had a lovely day and pretty much everyone she knows came out for a lovely tea. After all the really old people went to bed for the night, we had a surprizingly loud party time. My family's awesome. Rock on Gramma!!

      After that I took two weeks off and went on three different camping trips. One was a trip to the family cabin up north (Setting Lake, MB), and two were tent trips with people I work with. Needless to say, fun was had by all.

      That's the quick version of my summer, how was yours? Drop me a line and let me know, I've missed you. smiley1.gifsmiley12.gif

      So I'm pretty much moved into the new place. The past few weeks have consisted of much buying furniture/lawnmower/things that you realize you need but don't yet own... all the while working both jobs.

      Life is back to normal(ish) soon.

      Because I've been trying to buy a house.

      Buying a house is a hell of a thing. I've learned so much in the past three days I've forgotten what elementary school I went to.

      I've discovered that my new camera has a cery interesting little feature: "Panorama Stitch". Basically it lets you take two or three photos in sequence, stitching them togethre to make one big panoramic shot. So far it's working better than I thought it would.

      Wow. So vacation happened and it was awesome. Once I got back it was work work work. We're nearing the end of a provincial election campaign, so working in a newsroom has been maniacle. I don't think I've been on Rvb in a few weeks.

      Picture posts in my journal don't seem to be working too smoothly, so trust me... we drank alot.

      Gotta go, I think I hear campaign promises being made in the distance. To action!!

      So I'm in Toronto. I had a week or so of holiday time that I had to take, so Nev and I decided to finally head out east to Toronto and visit Greg. We landed this morning, and I'm already 6-7 beers in. I loves me some days off.

      Progress to follow.

      Seriously.

      Why is it that every time I go through the Tim Horton's drive-thru to get a cup of coffee (singular, non-plural, not complex cup of coffee), I get stuck behind the big lady ordering a dozen donuts (all specific and different) sandwiches and toasted bagels. Lady... it takes time to do all that!! smiley5.gifUs in the drive-thru have shit to do, schedules to keep and all that. That's why we're in the drive-thru. I have somewhere to drive to once I get my coffee. Bagels don't toast in two seconds. While those bagels are toasting, the line up of cars trails out into the street. Those of us in the news vehicles (or cop cars, or ambulances for that matter) don't like to be trapped in the line because of you. smiley4.gif

      Please... for me. If it's going to take more than a minute-and-a-half to make up your order, just go inside and order it "to go".

      Thank you, and good luck smiley1.gif

      It's an estuary, so it is tidal. When I was wandering around, the tide was out. I'll try and get back into town when the tide is in for comparison. :)

      I saw this on insert credit today

      "Rocket Company's budget-priced DS curling game has been out for a little while now, and is officially endorsed by an actual japanese curling team. They've recently put up a commercial, if you want to see if the game is actually as boring as it seems (hint: yes, but probably better on a DS than any other system)."

      Glad things are going well, despite all the work. Curling is a fun sport.. I tried it once and fell over a lot. Steve on ice is not fun to watch... well maybe... I guess that depends on the perspective.

      Otherwise.. just living the dream!
