She Knows Me So Well!

Bush Wacker sent me this cartoon today.

So Maurice in Summer!

She knows me so well!

The first frame has been applicable in recent days. But tomorrow I may be having someone over for dinner, which will make the evening a write-off (although I suspect a very amusing one). By now I’ve pretty well decided that I’ll be driving from Halifax to QuĂ©bec City on Thursday in order to work a full day on Wednesday.

Great vacation, huh? Well, then again, it’s of my making so I can’t really complain. Can’t blame a guy for trying to get the sympathy “aaahs,” though. 🙂

A Non-Toxic Form of Crack

I’ve made a few references lately to Facebook, and yeah, what can I say! Initially I resisted, and then one day I fell into it big time and wasted an entire evening. But now I check in once or twice a day for about 10 minutes at a time, and that’s quite enough.

It’s terribly addictive, which brought one of my listed friend to refer to it as Crackbook. And I wonder to what extent it is to 2007 what blogs were in 2003. I mean, blogs are still around today, but I’m sure you’ve noticed that many bloggers have come and gone, and blogs themselves are just not what they used to be. The novelty has worn off somewhat, and I suspect the same will happen with Facebook.

But in the meantime, it’s fun to trace back people you’ve lost touch of. In fact, a few weeks ago, I got together for dinner with Barry, a former neighbour from a decade ago, and then visited Sir Brian, another friend I’d lost touch with. So that’s definitely the positive side of Facebook. But overall, I have to admit I’m trying very hard not to fall into it too much. Fortunately, the novelty of it is already starting to wear off on me. At least a little bit.

And yes, I definitely need to get new pictures of myself to reflect that it’s been years I haven’t worn a full beard and that my hair is now resolutely all silver.
