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.
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.
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.
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!
