it is my brother robert's 25th birthday (wow). hope he has a good one in vancouver!
so this is my second evening at home after being released from hospital. i lost about ten pounds during my stay, which is really nothing like 'real' weight loss. i ran some errands today for about an hour and ate a legit meal.
i know most people were wondering "oh no, what will happen to the superalbum? should we expect a post humous release of semi complete material?" (ya right)
that morbid thought aside... apart from the obvious no fun found in being in a hospital and ill, it was a good long break from the internet and my computer and deadlines and let me think about what is important to me in this crazy,crazy world. i look to record tomorrow (i should have the house to myself) with increased zeal and with more of a message to express.....stay tuned
well, it's been a month!
ok, so blogging has clogged to a halt. i've been very busy. i will try to do a quick recap of events:
1) got a new job in saskatoon with zu.com communications
2) went on a independent roadtrip through Saskatoon-Lloydminster-Edmonton-Calgary where i met with friends and family along the way, including my new niece Berlyn Marie Code. also made living arrangements for the summer.
3) finished working for the chinook school division last friday
4) have been packing the last few days and playing ball hockey the last couple of nights
5) move back to saskatoon on thursday
moving, purging, cleansing
moving: no one likes to do it (ok, sadists probably do). but it is a lot of work.
however, there are benefits - the time between jobs, between living arrangements, etc provides the time and change necessary to contemplate on one's past and evaluate how they have been living and what they want to obtain in their life and their future to have in store. it is a reflective time and also the act of packing and choosing what to no longer bring with one can be a sort of letting go with parts of the past that have been clung to or are hurtful.
it is also draining though - no matter how much or little one is looking forward to change, it takes something out of you.
it seems like every ex-goalie is a NHL commentator. here is my list of them in decreasing tolerance:
- kelly hrudey
- greg millen
- darren pang
- helen keller (go with it - she is the control...i would rather have a deaf, blind commentator than the next two)
- lisa simpson
- glenn healy
glenn healy is terrible!!! guh try to watch a game he does without him mentioning: kovalev, 1994 ny rangers, smartening up, kovalev going top corner backhand on a breakaway (he used to do that against me in practice), or a general negative vibe.
Update, 2012 While the cliches of Healy remain the same, he has gotten a lot better. Some games I even make it to the third period before he irks me :P
Ray Lamontagne - Jolene ()
...A man needs something he can hold onto
A nine pound hammer or a woman like you
Either one of them things will do
I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze in my hair
Blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means...
