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 best friends.
FB and all that other stuff is fine… but it’s just not the same. :)
Quick update on life: I’m about to turn 52 and I’m in better health and shape today than I have ever been in the last 52 years. :D George is in college, in love, driving a car and working. Ed is in the middle of high-school, full of opinions, wants to work in the film industry, qualified for his karate black-belt test and then quit … because he’s just-that-awesome. And Suz, my darling wife, is looking and doing better today than at any other time in her life. The company I started a couple of years ago is doing great… profitable and busy. So in a nutshell? Life is grand.
Alas (earwax)… there is always a fly somewhere trying to land in the soup-of-life. I go back under the knife in mid-March for another (this will be the fourth) hernia operation. My main hobby has been “Fitness” in all its glory for the last few years and having an operation on your gut… really screws with that.
In as much as you’re your here,
They’re their there.
Never before has an “Olympics” been so effectively presented on the Web. I freaking love CBC.CA’s presentation. I can selectively watch full events any time I want. I have been soaking up all the extreme events with gusto. Some of the wipe-outs… have put my heart in my throat, but fortunately nobody has died … yet.
It continues to confound me that my country will struggle over funding social programs that help the obviously-in-desperate-need citizens … yet can commit 35 billion dollars to buy fighter jets that will never EVER be used to defend this country. Do you have any idea what 35 billion dollars (let alone a fraction of it) would do to the state of education, homelessness, and health care in Canada? It’s freaking insane. The whole concept of military spending is so completely screwed up … that I fear nothing will ever be able to correct the problem.
Ps. I will never get tired of loving recklessly, quickly and with all my heart. Friendship and the love that binds it… is the best part of this short life.
