In response to Alfie's vodka research.
We conducted serious and intense vodka research in our neighbourhood. It required many hours of concentration, and stamina. We tried it all. The expensive French Grey Goose, everything Russian, and the stuff you don't want to ever have again.
Maybe we're prejudiced, but the Canadian 'Iceberg Vodka', from Newfoundland (rhymes with understand) was the winner. Newfoundland is a very special part of Canada.
Says on the bottle the iceberg water is 14,000 years old. If you drink too much of it, that is exactly how you feel.
I just feel great.
and yes, my fly is open.
still thinking of kate.
For me, living in a big city is always a challenge. I do much better outside urban areas. Today I needed to get away, so I went up to the railroad tracks which run through the middle of the city. I often walk my dog here. You can go for miles, and never really know you are in the middle of a big city. It is a world away from everything else.
desolee needs correct French accents, which I cannot seem to do here. It is the only word for how you feel sometimes--I gues desolated is the proper translation, but it is not right.
your monday kilt pinup
especially for hildegarde.
sorry I didn't get more.
I have just enough time to get the house cleaned up before the big moment. Kids go crazy. Yes, Christmas can be commercial and disgusting, but not today. Not when you are standing in the middle of a couple thousand kids who believe.
There are about 30 bands. They are all in the park getting ready. Chaos, and a lot of long underwear. Except if you are wearing a kilt.
I need a parade. This is a block from my house. The parade begins at 1pm. So the kids can see, parents come early and mark out space. Everyone has lots of hot chocolate and supplies. Bathrooms are popular.
