Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea .

Thanks to Mrs. 4444's for hosting this Friday fun.

  • I want to start off by saying thanks to my pal over at Sanity's Overrated for a very kind shout out yesterday. I was touched by it.
    • On a related note:  It looks like we are going to break another visitation record this month.  It will be the 10th month in a row that visitation will reach a new record high.  Speaking of high, what are you people on?  I do thank all of you for dropping by nonetheless.
  • Heather has been volunteering at Liam's school most of this week.  This has left me with Erik duty.  We have had a good time together.  
    • On a related note: My ability to roar is at an all time high though I need to work on making my dinosaur and lion more distinctive.  Everyone's a critic, even a near two year old apparently.
  • I just finished reading a book entitled, Why I Hate Canadians by Will Ferguson.  It is a snappy read with some nice poignant thoughts.   
    • On a related note:  His favorite book of mine is still on entitled Bastards and Boneheads.  It is about the history of Canadian Prime Ministers.  

  • I took this picture of Erik the other day.  I do not know if the look on his face should worry or amuse me.
    • On a related note: Just to amuse me, please write a caption as to what he was thinking in the comments below.

  • I had a great lunch with my colleague and friend Steve this week.  He is an awesome guy and probably the best story-teller I have ever met.  It is a pleasure just to sit and listen to him at times.  
    • On a related note: I find it amazing when people tell me that they have a ton of friends.  I find it hard to keep engaged and stay relevant to the few that I have.  Perhaps there are some much more talented at this friendship think than I am.
  • I have managed to kill my back deck plants.  I guess my green thumb has turned black.  I miss having my roses.  I am still trying to figure out where I went wrong.  
    • On a related note:  I am quite adept at growing weeds (and not the profitable kind either).
  • It is the end of September and I am officially sick of the USA election and I don't even own a TV.  I can not imagine how painful it is to have to sit through political ads.
    • On a related note: I am also sick of Canadian, workplace and Sri Lankan politics as well.
  • Robyn is participating in her first debate on Saturday.  It is being held at the USC.  You know the school of Universally Small (let's just call them Roosters).  
    • On a related note:  The topic is whether automatic weapons should be banned. For a freshman in high school this is a pretty heady topic getting into constitutional and legal arguments.  She seems to be prepared and ready to go.  I am sure she will make us proud.  I wonder if her Canadian side will come out in this argument.  Mes thinkin' so.
