I just have to

Sunday, July 03, 2011

I had originally tried to plan my "next" blog as something worthwhile to write and to read,yet it didn't work out that way this time. I spent the long weekend (had Friday off this week as its a stat in Canada) sanding and stripping the gable end of the garage on and off ladders for about 6 or 7 hrs over 2 days still it needed to be done so it didn't mind too much although I was glad I was thinner and hopefully in a bit better shape. I was glad things went as well as they did I was going to paint today but its been threatening to rain all day. Bummer.

Victoria Day

Monday, May 23, 2011

I had today off as it is a civic holiday in Canada. I can remember setting off fireworks with my family at my grandpa's farm (later we moved it to my uncle's farm just across the highway from my Grandpa Atkinson's why I can't remember).
I don't mind living in a country that is a member of the Commonwealth. Its never bothered me that we have Elizabeth II as our head of state (maybe its because my family is English). I don't mind the extra day off but I am not looking forward to tomorrow as a bad thing happened to me at work Friday (it wasn't deliberate on my part but I am sure I will get blamed for it).

random thoughts

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

I just realized tonight how much I miss Karate. Committing to something for 14 years and then dropping it left a huge void in my life. I also am trying decide whether to pay for part of that gents shipping (he paid return shipping and then stupid paypal gives me back less even though the CAD is worth MORE than the greenback - talk about greed) . He promised in his ad to pay return shipping and gave some LAME excuse as to why the butt set he was selling didn't work (all the while in his ad he was boasting about his Lab and all his experience BLAH BLAH ) personally I still think he should be responsible to make sure it works if he is going to represent it was being refurbished and 100% functional (his words).

    My son just got his black belt in taekwondo. He also does gumdo. I wish I were able to do them.

I know that this has NOTHING at all to do with what we are trying to do on this site (or maybe it does ?) I just recently bought a test set from a "gent" in the US on Ebay for a second time (maybe its even the SAME POS) and it screwed UP . Guess I should have learnt the first time. STUPID STUPID STUPID ME. now i gotta try to get my money back . Crap,

    Make sure you do it soon because eBay will only help resolve disputes for a limited time.

spring influenza

Monday, April 11, 2011

Its amazing how a virus that i cannot even see can knock a "healthy" male for a loop . I spent the majority of the weekend sick and slept probably 20 out of the last 24. I still don't feel much like eating, I ate an orange at noon and a couple of slices of veggie pizza, some onion rings and some ground beef and some yogurt (the yogurt was the only thing I enjoyed). I don't know if its totally a side effect being sick or if my stomach is shrinking but I almost felt nauseated trying t eat ALL of that.

    Thanks yeah I took 2 days off of work and went back on Wednesday. My wife took all week off. Then the daughter (22) got it and tells her mom "oh I cant believe how sick I feel".
