Kat and Dillon came over tonight after a deadly feed of sushi and brought Game of Thrones. We’re watching episode 5 now of the first season. Pictured here are Bigg-E and Ace catching treats I tossed for them. I took a few shots trying to capture the action of two dogs jumping for treats at the same time, but quickly lost patience, haha.

I wasn’t able to post this picture last night due to the power being out. Matt and Mitch are home for a wedding and we all went out for supper on Thursday night to the Duke of Duckworth. Here are Mitch, Melanie, Matt, and Melissa carrying on out in the alley after the best fish and chips in the world.

Things I learned attempting this photo. Using a flash and trying multiplicity does not work. I wanted to have a duel with myself, however trying to jump and time it with the timer on the camera got very tiring quickly. I opted for a standard ready to kick ass pose for the second one. Next time I try this it’ll be better.

So not really a theme picture but the picture has an interesting story so I thought I would share that today.

I am still feeling miserable. I left the house for the first time today since Sunday to go to the mall. The only reason I left to go was because I got a call saying my new iPhone 6 had arrived and I needed to pick it up ASAP.

I head to the mall, pick up my new phone, and by the time I get home I am exhausted.  I look at my phone and I see the dreaded blue screen of death. I am in shell-shock, I have no idea what is going on, I try all the buttons but nothing is working - the phone is bricked. I hastily take a picture of the blue screen, then a small video, and before you know it the screen was black.

I drove back to the mall immediately, the teller gives me a strange look when I return, I tell her my story, show her the picture and she says “Wow, never seen that one before”. 30 minutes later, two employees looking at the phone and my picture/video and various phone calls they finally get it to the apple loading screen, but it becomes frozen in this screen for 10 minutes. All of a sudden a vibrant red screen of death appears, however it didn’t last long, the second picture you can see the red has faded a whole lot.

Long story short I am using my old iphone, I had a bricked paper-weight of a new iphone on my desk, hoping a new one comes in sometime next week.

I awoke this morning and recapped a weird dream I had last night where I was consoling Mumbies. He was sad and suffering, someone had hurt him and I was helping him out. About 10 minutes after waking up I learned he broke his leg last night. 
He didn’t just break his leg, he fucking destroyed it. Pics of it are pretty nasty, his foot basically separated from his ankle and he broke it below his knee when he slipped on a wet patch playing basketball. He had surgery today and they have it realigned. He now gets to look forward to 6 weeks on crutches and then some physio. But Andrew isn’t anything if he isn’t resilient, he’ll bounce back from this.
We spoke after his surgery and he said if he had a juice box he’d throw it at me. I broke my leg when I was struck by a car at the age of 12, I was racked up pretty bad. A few days after I awoke from a coma my brothers and sister got to see me for the first time in about a week. As soon as I saw Andrew I threw a juice box at him. I was still out of it, and all we could figure after was my initial reaction stemmed from how I would throw Nintendo controllers at him when he would beat me. I wish I were in Calgary so he get me back.
Here’s Bigg-E wishing Andrew a speedy recovery.
Take care, buddy!

I thought I was turning a corner with this cold, but dear old asthma decided to pay a visit today and kick my ass. Hopefully with some puffers I can nip this in the butt and get back to a regular routine. I took pictures of the action of dice rolling. Very difficult without an external flash, but I made due with what I had.

I bought this thing at Value Village. I used it to determine if I should buy it. It now lives on my desk. It told me to use this photo. It tells me to do everything I do these days.

I still feel miserable. Here is an action shot of Janet flipping a coin. Janet is a very good and consistent coin flipper.

My sister’s in town for work training and came over to visit us tonight. It was great seeing her again. Melanie, our cousin, dropped over as well. We chowed some Menchies then played Creationary and joked around.
Meghan trolled this pic with a funny face, but so did Bigg-E… I think they were in cahoots.

People know I hate coffee or tea or any hot beverage. I have no use for mugs. Unless I am sick and I want a mug of soup. I feel like death is upon me today. A cup of tomato soup was all I could muster for lunch. New theme is action. Hopefully I feel well enough soon to take some pictures.

I was really lucky today. I got to ride shotgun in a Subaru STI, my favourite car on the road under $100k, and then I got to shoot it. My buddy John Jeddore is the proud owner of this rumbling beauty. He saved up for years, sold his beloved Civic, and upgraded to this incredible car.
I’ve been friends with John for a few years and knew that he named vehicles int he past so I asked him if he named this car. Sure enough, this is Paqtism, Mi’kmaq for wolf. It was also the name of his first dog. It is also a very badass name.
While being giddy riding with 305hp, I was also super comfortable. This thing is a dream. A comfy sedan with serious guts.
Thanks John, next time I’ll get you to do that burnout!

Simple car picture for today. Some douche bag parking their truck in front of Sobeys. They were still there when we walked out with our groceries. I wanted to take the pylons and place them all around his truck. Janet convinced me not to.

My brother from the Student Movement, Mathieu Murphy-Perron, and his partner, Jaclyn Turner, are visiting from Montreal. They are road tripping through the Atlantic Provinces, and we spent the last few days hanging out. They put a lot of kilometres on their shoes while here in town, and are having a great time. 

This morning we popped out to Cape Spear for the sunrise. It was windy and cold but we weren’t disappointed, well mostly not. Jacky was really hoping for some fog, but as there wasn’t any fog we might as well have sun, right? They’re here tomorrow tomorrow morning and then Fogo tomorrow evening and Monday. Between here and there they’ll get some rdf. In the first picture they are sharing a moment at the most easterly point in North America.

Mat needed to get his beard trimmed so we dropped in on Chris and the b’ys at Fogtown and they cleaned him up. I like this photo and was going to use it for today’s post, but any day you get up and head to Cape Spear for the crack of dawn deserves to be posted, haha. So here are both.

Non theme for me today, Janet and I and a few friends went to the Ferryland Lighthouse picnic. This is a picture of said lighthouse. What a delightful spot.
