"in her birds a news reviewed the dollars"

That is why I love spam...Tasha Winkler sends me messages with the above subject and Matilda Milligan calls her mail "cow few".
Lately I have been getting quite a few regarding how to pleasure her ultimately...before that they were all about small packages. What kind of packages? I didn't open them to find out...I may love spam, but I'm not stupid.

Seriously...I look forward to checking my shawmail address just because of the spam.

but marge....we're missing the cookoff

I've got to say...I feel sorry for all you jewish folks and muslims out there...
The pig? It makes for some "good eats". I'm not sure I would want to go through life without.
The International Chicken and Rib Cook-off is going on on the Sparks Street mall right now (kinda like stephen ave...) and yummmmm.
The whole place smells like Bar B Q and the pork is delicious.
I am quite disgusted with the fact that I ate my entire pulled pork sandwich because it was HUGE (though probably half a pound or less of meat because the full pound of pulled pork is $11 and my sandwich was half of that). I had a very Jordan momment as I sat there, half done thinking "you know...I'm full...but it is just so tasty". Against my better judgement, I finished it off. I only partially regret it.
Perhaps we'll have to go back tomorrow and take pictures (and try the chicken?).

yes, i re-titled this post. i think this one is much better.

I have been exhausted all week. It isn't even that hot right now (though it was on Sunday...) but I'm still having trouble sleeping and therefore, the days feel very long.

I actually stayed up to watch the hockey game the other day. I felt it was my Canadian duty to watch game 7 of the Stanley Cup final. I find it interesting that the guy that played a key role in keeping the cup from the Oilers is from Edmonton. That must be weird for his parents.

Hopefully y'all have more energy than I do. If you can spare some, send some spunk my way...

happy fathers day!

As I browsed the Post Secret site today, I was gratefull that I have such a good father. Sorry I can't be there with you...'twould be nice to sit and chat and cook on the bbq. Have a great day it looks like the weather should at least be decent.

Hopefully all of you out there have a great day as well.

drugs drugs drugs (which are good, which are bad)

So not only to I get to watch drug deals out my kitchen window, I now get to witness them from an arms length at the bus stop.
It felt like a regular morning walking to the bus stop, until some strange people ended up crossing the street with me. They promptly walked into the bus shelter, sat down and started shuffling their drugs around. Mmmm...drugalicious...
Luckily I had a book with me, so I just stood around, reading my book and hoping the bus would hurry up.

apparently i have nothing to say

I guess things have just been kind of normal...
Seriously...I try to come up with things to write and I've got nothing.

I thought I'd be able to cheer for the Oilers in the Stanley Cup final...but I just can't do it.

I don't have a huge interest in the World Cup...though "football" does produce a lot of drama. I do like that part of it. It is the watching part that can get a little tedious (thank goodness there are a few good looking soccer players...).

Father's day is less than a week away...I had better get on that.

I miss having a backyard to sit and lounge in on nice days. Hopefully our next apartment has a balcony.

That's all I've got for now...sorry.

what is scarier?

All the terrorist talk? Or the fact that even the government was shocked when the budget was passed without much opposition?
Perhaps it's the naive/not too reactionary Canadian in me, but I find the budget business a little more unsettling. (And I see the peace tower every morning)

my little sister's all growned up...

Well...mostly anyway.
She starts her brand new job tomorrow after going through some pretty intense training. Sure not as intense as the stuff I had to do for my that reading about systematic reviews was waaaaay more intense than learning how to prepare people for a crash landing. And learning about the company's "process document"? Probably tougher than learning how to put out a fire...(though I'm pretty sure that people have wanted to burn it before...does that count?)
We're all proud of you and hope that your first few weeks (and the rest of it too...but the first part is always the scariest) go really well!
If I had a picture of her in her newly altered pants, I'd put it you'll all just have to wait for her to post it.
Good luck H-mo (I almost put the "g" name, but thought I'd leave it out)!!!
