Jeff and I are just back from collecting the Mr. Two from Dundas Street, where it was parked overnight after we hung out at Jim’s party. Keith came along as well. A substantial chunk of Jim’s old band was there and they backed me up on Buy Me A Beer, which I managed to get [...]

Mom and baby moose. A plug for the hilariously named Reifel Bird Sanctuary. I have learned I can still apply for my FAC (the gun licence thing). I am going to. My to do list is growing like a six foot across amoeba while I watch in hor-ror. So what am I going to do [...]
… I realize it’s Beer Day in Germany. Ein Prosit!
The problem with writing science fiction is that you end up writing what will happen. Pic is of a transgenic puppy who glows in the dark.
Katie Paul and Keith picked me up from work yesterday and I drove them home and fed them spaghetti. KATIE HAS A MOHAWK. She looks awesome. But it’s not one of those mohawks where you cut hair, it was mostly made out of hairspray. She also got supergoth makeup. I should post pics when I [...]
Okay, tell me I’m wrong.
In direct contravention of the breeder’s request, I am letting her out on the back deck. This is made easier by the fact that she comes back in when you call her. I don’t want to get her a collar but I will have to now that she is going outside. She and Gizmo ate next [...]
Adding to my list of woes is a leg cramp that tossed me unceremoniously, swearing under my breath, out of bed at 3 this morning. It sure gets your attention when that happens. We’re still waiting for the new gal to start, it’s apparently going to be Thursday now.
…that Peter T’s brother has made the short list of the sci-fi-london short film fest. Details Here. His film is Hopper’s Fortune. Peter T, for those of you joining late, is the one who brought Miss Margot into my life.
Carrie is here on her way to a new home up in Telegraph Creek. I’m working so I won’t get to see her much before she leaves in the RV, but she’ll be back for her boyfriend John’s daughter’s wedding in June and we’ll be able to hang out more then. The cherry blossoms are [...]
Woke up at 3 this morning, which strikes me as being a rather dirty trick on my sensorium. I really took it easy this weekend, and I am happy to say that my left foot no longer hurts.
Darwin was adorable, and it was very pleasant to watch Keith interact with him for the first time. Lexi fed us roast chicken and oven roasted potatoes and salad and asparagus. Katie sluiced back quite a bit of wine; I managed to hold the line at a single beer. Today I roasted a beast and [...]
I am quite sure all the bars in town breathed a sigh of relief. Click here for an amazing assortment of zoo pictures from around the world. Paul stopped by on his way back into town. His sis and bro-in-law are doing famously – she is starting to do doula work in rural Alberta, which [...]
