Yesterday was great (aside from the realization that I can't get my new computer bits until the 3rd!!) and today... is going to be even better. :)
I'm liking this holiday stuff... too damn bad I have to go back to work at all. Seriously... I bought a lottery ticket yesterday (I almost never do that).
Hey... we went to the big-ass toboggan hill in the neighborhood. It's a huuuuuge hill... big stadium lights etc. Kinda maintained by the city...
Point is... it was way icy. And we went at 5:30 for a little pre-dinner fun. So it wasn't that busy.
Now... WHAT the hell is it about sledding that turns people into sled-magnets?
I swear, a person walking across a big empty toboggan hill will be targeted, as if by magic, any sled that dares descend.
Proof : [ :: Check out this little video segment from last night (it's a relatively small file). :: ]
I was trying to just grab a little footage of Geo (he's in the Yellow jacket on the right) going down. Ed's in the sled with me and we take off straight down the hill...
Check for the dude on the far left of the screen... Fortunately ... we missed him... but, like, by a fricking eyelash man...
Oh my god we were laughing hard... :)

~ will this be the year that someone yells loud enough about Africa and aids?
~ can anything stop Putin from decimating his population over the Chechnia thing...
I know it's very self centered... but of all of those issues... the first is the one that has the most relevance, for me, in Canada.
We are far from done with it, socially and politically, and while it may seem like a "minority group" issue...
I propose that it will define, by it's resolution, the tenor life as a Canadian for years.
It's not in the details... no, it's more about what the choices we make say about us as a society.
Equality and freedom should not be difficult concepts.
Ok... time to go be dad. :)
See ya. :D
(and have a great day muchachos y muchachas...)
