hey, y'all right there grandpa...


mystery photo #40 - what body part are we looking at? side note: looks like i need a little moisturizer...

i fell, for the second time in the last 6 months, while out for a run today.

no, it wasn't because of slipping on ice. it was the ol' crack in the sidewalk that did me in this and the last time. damn those cracks.

running is a pretty painful activity. sometimes you focus on the pain and you forget to look where you're placing your steps. funny, anytime i trip on a crack the subsequent spill happens in slow motion. in the case of today, i thought i could've saved myself. instead, my attempt at regaining my balance resulted in a longer slide (maybe 2 metres). luckily i ran off the sidewalk and slid mostly on the grass. damage? well i caught my hand on the chainlinked fence adjacent to the sidewalk and horrendous scrapes to my knees and both forearms...

who says running's a safe sport?

once in a while the kids at the hi-school i run by yell out, "hey gramps, y'all right?". i'm beginning to understand why they say that...

funny thing happened on the way to the liberry...

i was riding my bike to the calgary public library the other day. just as i was crossing the street, i spotted a lil' ol' lady sitting at the bus stop close by. she kind of looked lonely sitting there wearing her toque.

i looked closer.

it was my mama!!

i rode on over. she didn't recognise me right away so i rode right up and startled her. ha!

i asked her where she'd been that day.

she went to the stupid store. the walnuts were really expensive...

we parted ways after she complained the bus was late...

canadian election redux...

well i caught the last hour of the debate tonite.

my conclusions on tonite's proceedings:

1) politicians really don't like answering pointed questions...
2) politicians really like hearing themselves talk...
3) i'm still never going to vote for harper's conservatives. ever... if they ever got in office, i'm leaving the country... i'll move to america!
4) how much are all these promises going to cost?
5) if gilles duceppe was running in calgary SE, i'd probably vote for him. too bad he's a separatist fascist bastard.
6) vince carter was a hump in a raptor's uniform. why did they let him go?
7) we're getting really sick of cbc reality checks...
8) ralphie klein has jumped the shark...
9) chachi loves joannie. chachi doesn't love joannie...
10) i've made up my mind on who to vote for based on tonite's debate

next election report: party leaders' fashion sense or nonsense?

i'm going to say knee coz you kinda gave it away in the text - unless of course it's a forearm. in any case - OUCH!

what Art meant to say was "Ignorants are choking welfare systems, contributing to high unemployment, and many cannot read (anything other than the good book)."
