Todays picture... captures my morning moment with Edward.
He's gonna turn nine in a couple of weeks.
Every school day it's the same thing...
I come to his bed, roll him over, and dress him.
All the while, trying to wake him up.
He wakes just enough to reach up when I tell him it's time to go downstairs
and I carry his snuggly little self down to the sofa.
He manages to wake up enough to watch what ever is on the tv
and come to eat his breakfast.
And yes... I realize he's mostly, kinda, sorta faking it
And no... I couldn't possibly care less. :)

The plan was to wake up killer early... pile Geo in the car and drive across the city to CHEO (Childrens Hospital) for his Breath Hydrogen Test.
Sadly... I totally blew it by forgetting the special diet requirements for him yesterday... so the test would be useless.
Postponed until February.

So instead of booking the morning off... I was back in front of the lap top, slowing squeezing my eyeballs out of their sockets reading page after dreaded page of info on the new clients. Weeeeeeeee!

It's warmed up again... like +1 and headed for +6 tomorrow - ski lesson day for the boys... oh joy.

Dear Mother nature;
Please overdose on your fricking crack supply and soon.
You are dangerously close to earning the new handle
"Mother Nature, that cunt on crack controlling the weather"
Which, on closer consideration, will be a total bitch on the CB.

If you think the democratic wins in the congressionals were demonstrative of public opinion,
Just wait till the presidentials, if that jack-off invades Iran.
Oh, and on the subject of democrats...
Have you ever seen Oprah trying to clap her hands to a tune?
That's what I see in my minds eye when I see Nancy Pelosi.
She just seems to have .... I don't know... no rhythm or something...

Dry wall mud and human hands...
Like, ok... you're enjoying a little walk in the desert, having just fed the camels, launched a few rockets at some passing yanks, and ordered a little 'Za from Abdul's "We deliver to your dune" Pizza-ajha... Then a sand storm hits, like ... right out of abu-nowhere. You, your bag of dried, salted, Bedouin Strips, and your scimitar get buried up over your head in blowing, boiling sand. So... you have to dig... dig dig dig... your way out, only to find yourself temporarily sand blind and thirsty, splayed out in the late afternoon sun... for about six days... Ok, right then... if got your sight back, found an umbrella and a lawn chair... took a load off and had a good look at your hands...
My hands, after several nights of drywall mudding, would be what you see.
I could just dunk my hands in a bowl of Kerri Lotion and whistle along with the sucking noises.

If you're happy and you know it
Clap your cracked sandpaper stumps
If you're happy and you know it
Clap your cracked sandpaper stumps
If you're happy and you know it
and you really want to show it
If you're happy and you know it
Clap your cracked sandpaper stumps.

Dry hands...
But in such a bang-on great mood. :)

See ya la8er sk8ers. :)
Or C-88 in uber strange crypitc skater geek talk.
