Sunday, December 4



(for this picture... I will likely be killed... :D)

When someone says the television channel they're watching is "snowy"... they are talking about exactly what I'm seeing through my window. Teeny little snow flakes everywhere...swirling down and making you feel like you need to check how well the world is connected to the cablevision cable.

Edward is coughing up a lung... and Geo (read: mom) is just about done the big project on Sir Wilfred Laurier... she really get's into helping on projects... to Geo's benefit - for sure - (It's not like she does it for him... but she does get "into it". :D) We a printed (read: counterfeit) five dollar bill with Geo's head on it... :)
His project includes a poster - can you say gluuuuuuue stick and him standing up and "being" his subject matter and giving a speech.

Last night was a celebration of my dad's birthday and my BIL's birthday... today is actually my dads day! :D We all... big family... went to one of those groovy chinese restaurants that are lit like a gymnasium and ... everything is in chinese... nothing in english... no subtitles of english... nadda. :) It was fabulous. Sadly, Edward had to stay home... and Z kept him company... (they had their own chinese take out! :D)
I got my dad a copy of "The Book Of Lists - Canadian Edition" (which means they have some Canadian content... it's awesome!!! fantastic book to just leaf through and grab fast facts. :D The Top Five Incestuous Families In The Bible was kinda fun to read. :)

The election issues in canada are at full steam. So far... as expected... all that has happened is the Liberal party has sat back and done nothing (besides spending money), the Conservatives have shot themselves ... several times... and promised to spend money... and the NDP have... remained quiet. Basically, it's just the Conservatives carping away and making their own lives a living hell. Ye-ha... elections.
Dear Mr. Harper... you soooo need another job.
Dear Everyone In The Liberal Party... you soooo need a new party.
Dear NDP... please form a coalition and let us have another minority government. :D

~ Geo practicing his speech... they hold a little paddle with their topic's face on it... and, basically, read their speech from the back of it. :)
(note: His subject - Wilfred Laurier - had chronic bronchitis, so he is working regular hacking coughs into his speech. :))
ankles

(no subject)

grays anatomy ... taping away in the background.
desperate ho's waiting on the pvr...
and a smack load of other shows that... we... just don't find time to watch! :)
Ah well... gray is "must see tv" for us lately. :)

long day... but snowy!! I had to shovel the laneway... :) The street is so pretty with everyones christmas lights strung... and the snow coming down. :)

My car is absolutely dying!!! At least... it sounds that way. There is a hole in some pipe between exploding gasoline and the exhaust... and to hear it... you'd swear it's getting bigger every time I step on the gas. I can't have it fixed till Tuesday... so I have to drive it to work tomorrow. (crosses fingers).

We had rainbow trout tonight... and I have to say... I have it down fricking perfect;
~ lay out a fresh fillet of trout
~ sprinkle with chili pepper..
~ blob with hot spicy sauce from a county fair somewhere...
~ splash a wee bit of soya...
~ then literally cover it with a half flour / half bread crumbs mix.
~ skin side down in a fry pan... cook for 5 - 10... flip it (two spatula's - one on either side, like a big plastic pair of pliers.)
~ the fishy-oil-soaked bread crumb stuff ... gets crispy... :)
~ peel the skin off while it's in the pan, cut in half and serve as a portion. One full fillet, makes two big portions.
~ served with smashed taters, broccoli and Caesar salad (Geo made the salad!! :D :D) and garlic bread.

Tuesday... morning meeting at my company office... no client time at all... and then home at lunch for the afternoon of tooth smashing goodness with the doc. I have been told I will be put out completely... and I'll have to make a point of telling them to be careful of the TMJ... tell them over and over and over... sigh.
Dentists are... dangerous... and there has to be a certain amount of sadism involved to land in that profession. I mean... of this there is no question.

Ok... I think I'll have chit chat with the Admiral and then catch up with a show. :)

I hope you're night is going well...
