Wow... I just blew a weeks worth of Journal updates off my hand-held. Drag.

Newsy updates: Napster still exists, Jenni (of JenniCam) did not implode - although I think she's moving again. Survivor and BB have managed to hold my attention (understatement).
Life updates: I've been on holidays (two weeks). We pawned our kids off to my units for three days and two nights!! That was sweet. I mean I love 'em to death but two whole nights in a row pretending to be kiddless was glorious.

We went to a restaurant in downtown Ottawa (Fresco's) to use up some gift certifs I got for doing some geek work for a friend. Really nice - I recommend something I think was called 'Diovolli'. We toured around downtown and ended up home and happy. Great meal, wonderful surroundings (Ottawa is an amazing city) and beautiful company - yup, I can sort of remember life before kids.
We took the kids to a cottage last week (just got home!). Nice place but the 80 foot fall to your death between the cottage and the lake kinda grates on yer nerves - ok, so there's a path but still! (kids are 2 & 4)

I programmed the upstairs vcr to tape farscape on Wed and the family room vcr to tape 8-9 everynight (BB and Survivor on Wed) and tape 9-10 on Wed (BB banishment hour)- upstairs vcr randomly powers off and that blew farscape, and the "one time" program (9-10) overwrites the 'every night' (8-9) program so that blew all the 8-9 tapes... bottom line, we only taped the banishment episode of BB. Big harry drag re: miss'en the farscape episode.

The site is great - better than bbblows for sure. They have a great little widget that lets you watch 7 cams (incl the chicken and control room) plus 4 broadband cams that actually scale 'ok' to full screen. and there is a four cams in one cam that rocks... they all do the 'stay on top' deal.

I have sooo many projects that are being ignored ... its driven me crazy. I gotta stop all this parenting and get back to hobbies... just kidding.

anyways, I'm back to work tomarow - I actually like that. work is a gas! sick 'eh!

ps. who invented the thong underware deal?

    You know that shiver you get through your shoulder blades and down your back when you feel cold. Maybe you’ve just left the restaurant and you’re…

    as I read and read and read about "Selfies"... I quietly say to myself... "um... yeah, tell me again how selfies are a new thing." lol. :)

    Hiya. :) Today was one of those “oh look… LJ is still there” days. Oh how I miss the old days when LJ was pretty much a playground filled with my…
