Ok... enough with the wind.
It's almost ... almost as if mother nature is trying to blow away the old year and make a clear landing pad for the new one.
It's beautiful and sunny... which is killing me... because I think I ought to be trying to go skiing.

A very happy birthday to rini... (we had dinner together in Washington, DC... which is pretty cool because ... I almost never get to actually meet anybody...) I hope you have a lovely day today, but mostly that the year ahead brings you good news, good health and great big wonderful opportunities. :)

The Ottawa Bus Strike.

Have you seen 50 First Dates?
Yeah... I've seen it ages ago... but I watched it again last night.
I'm glad I did.
