Damn Parents

I tape my show every week and I look forward to the time I set aside to watch it. This week I did all my chores, filled up my juice cup, got a snack, and snuggled myself into bed.

I pushed play on the VCR and then…

What the hell?!?!… instead of my show I have an hour and a half recording of my Dad flipping channels.

If they don’t know how to work something, they should leave it alone.

Compliments?

I like to think that I dress well. I pride myself on wearing nice suits, well-pressed and starched shirts, and shined shoes. I make sure that my belt matches my shoes and that my socks match my pants. My belt buckle is always centered and lined up with my shirt buttons and my tie is always the proper length.

I sound anal, don’t I?

I just like to look good.

Today, while at a client, I received three separate compliments on my attire at three different times from three different people.

Lookin’ good!

Just one question though: What was wrong with the Ryan of 2003 that makes the Ryan of 2004 so great in comparison?

Hmmmm.

In other news: I think I’m dying. The Vietnamese Pig Flu that I had last week has nicely morphed into the worst cold of all time. I got myself an extra large bottle of Dimetapp Extra Strength D M Cough & Cold. The way I figure it, the more I take, the faster I’ll get better.

Roll over and die now, type later.

Dogs Don’t Play Foosball

We got a dump of snow over Friday night and when I woke up Saturday morning there was about a foot and a half. I got to play with the snow blower.

The children’s ski lessons at the Petawawa Ski Club are done for another year. I went up to the hill Saturday morning to help out with lessons and ended up taking Bill’s class. Poor Bill had the sniffles.

The first group was good and the students (Brittany, Chantal, and Melissa) were a pleasure to teach. The second group (one student: Ryan) not so much. The less said the better. After the party I went to my real job and worked till suppertime.

The next stop was the spa in Beachburg, better known as Chad and Mandy’s. My job was to baby-sit Aspen while his parents went away for the weekend. Aspen and I had fun… we played in the snow and had snowball fights, we laid around the house and ate Milkbones, we played fetch the squeaky toy and fetch the teddy bear, we snoozed in the sun, and stayed up late watching action movies. I tried to teach Aspen how to play foosball but after a couple of minutes he seemed to lose interest and decided his time would be better spent licking himself. Oh well, foosball isn’t for everyone.

Bed now, type later.

PS: I would like to point out that it has only been two days since my last post. That is approximately a 99.5% increase in posting frequency.

Definition Of Understatement

I started my most recent blog entry with “I always have the best of intentions and I mean to update this blog more regularly… please be patient, faithful reader.” That was more than a year ago.

If my faithful readers… reader… um… anyone? If anyone out there is still checking this blog after more than a year between updates I want to say two things: 1) thank you very much, and 2) what the hell is wrong with you?

I’ll start over again.

I really do have the best of intentions and I intend to update this blog regularly. I’m aiming for at least once a week and, ideally, once a day. How can I say this you ask? Well, many things have changed in the past year. Here they are in no particular order of importance:

1) My student loan has been fully paid off

2) My belly sticks out over my belt a little more

3) I have a sexy new iBook with a wireless internet connection

4) I shot my first ever par and birdie this summer

The only item that bears on the regularity of my blog updating is my sexy iBook. With a portable computer I am able to surf the internet and update anywhere, anytime, wearing anything. I don’t have to wait for the rest of my family to finish using the computer, get dressed, or be at home to update. I hope to do my updates just before bed. I figure the process of typing out some of my random thoughts will calm and soothe me and thereby allow me to sleep deeper and better.

I’m going to stop now before I run out of things to say and then have to make you wait another year for an entry.

Once again, thank you for bearing with me, have a good evening, and I’ll talk to you soon.
