June 29th, 2002



Well I raced (hahaha... well, it felt like it) home from work ... and found the boiz starting a Blues Clues tape. They were just home from the daycare. Z and I made plans for the evening, pizza and a movie and we executed those plans quite nicely.

Factor in a trip to the park... Ed on his first "two wheeler" (training wheels included) and Geo on his bike... little helmets that make their little heads look extra tiny), Mom on her bike and me on a skateboard.... sand, play structure and loads of other kids...

A bed time ritual of baths (de-sanding hair is the WORST), snack and Harry Potter.

Then it was us time. We rented A Beautiful Mind. Noting that I had heard almost nothing about this movie other than it was good and about a code breaker... I would like to point out that I my first "enemy" in life was a boy from camp that would - along with his friend Ken Write - pick on me and basically beat me up (little kid stuff) named John Nash. Then, when we moved in grade six... the new school included... John and Ken... oh joy. So yesterday, after 30 some-odd years, I see Ken Write on the street. Blech... then the movie is all about some guy named John Nash. hmmm..
coink-i-dink? yea ok.

A Beautiful Mind was a wonderful movie. The baby scare part had me pausing the movie in horror... btw... but, thankfully, it works out well... and that may be a spoiler but tough. It's a small part and I thought it was an unnecessary scare tactic. :)

~ the stuff I wear before a shower... sweats and sox.
~ to return the movie...
~ to put some fresh milk in my folks fridge... they come home from a trip down east today.
~ um... nothing special.
~ that I have a chance to catch up on lj... I saw absolutely nothing last night in lj... We passed out on the sofa after the movie...

See ya soon.


and Ed is the bandaid king right now... elbows and knees...

Geo just showed up saying "Now dad, don't be mad about this ok? but I changed all of Ed's bandaids..." (like I'd be mad!! - Ed was quiet as a kitten for George while he did that...)

Happy Wedding Day

byron gets hitched today!!

Congratulations Byron and I hope that you have a wonderful day. The man you will be for the rest of your life will put on shoes today and walk. Those are... each of them... very important steps. Be true to yourself and to your wife. I wish for you the greatest of happiness and happiest of days.

pool time

We have a wee kiddie pool out back... with a slide 'n ever-tin.

The boiz seem to play well together when the object of the game is to soak one another.

(click the pic for the full shot...)

Of course, things get territorial after a while...

Oh, and low and behold... the "stick tree" that we planted er... two years ago and that has basically looked like a big 8 foot tall stick for all that time... kinda blossomed this year;
(this is how it looks right now...)
  • Current Mood
    just talking to myself.


TVClubhouse.com was the best place I could find for big brother and big brother 2 stuff. They are back in the saddle again and ready for action with the bb3 show.

Check their site... (select the USA2002 link)

Imagine... ( I know it's almost insane ) people will watch all the internet live feeds and quite seriously transcribe every single thing said and done in the BB3 house. Believe me when I tell you ... what actually happens in the house (at least for BB1 and BB2) is vastly funnier and crazier then whatever makes it to the TV show. :D

Now then... who is going to point me to a Big Brother 3 Community in Livejournal?


Happy Birthday Caroline!!!

Every so long ago... I met a young woman... working in a job that completely grabbed my interest. She was designing the layout of an office building, with a team of architects... this was BC (before Carlo) and, well... so very much has changed for her in that last year and a half... New job, new city and Carlo...

I hope you have a wonderful birthday Caroline and that this next year brings you all the happiness you can handle... (and plenty of good "driving music") :D

Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday dear Caroline... Happy Birthday to you...
