A real post might occur any day now

8 Jan

The adjustment to these new drugs is making it hard for my brain to focus in any coherent creative way, and is taking away from my time writing. Being busy at work after having a crap December attention wise isn’t helping either. Any ideas how to cram 24 hours of work into a ten hour shift? Anyone? Bueller? I’d stay here and work late, but then The Dorf would get annoyed. or maybe not. I’m certainly not working late tomorrow since I’m going CURLING! That’s right! Curling!

I haven’t curled since I was about 13, and I’ve missed it. It’s totally dorky, but it’s a hoot. It’s work related, but it will be enough for me to figure out if I want to do it again on a regular basis.

I took Vivian for her second hair cut in an attempt to curb the white lady mullet fro that was going on. The hairdresser was nice, and fought the good fight, but it’s hard to evenly trim a moving target, especially with Mom hovering around, taking pictures, and generally getting in the way and being annoying. Will I ever learn to just back off?


She was cool with it. As always. This kid seems to be cool with everything. Who knew.


The haircut didn’t improve the fro issue. It’s just not “as” high. I think I’ll just shave her head.

    Too bad you missed the Chocolate Museum, then, because part of it was an exhibition of curling trophies earned by Ganong family members.

    You’re making me want to throw “Men With Brooms” into my Netflix queue, now. I’m getting the urge to see the team use the stone with the ashes of their coach inside.

    I’ve never been or seen a curling game. But I’ve seen them practice up in British Columbia.

    If your wondering were I found you. I use to read your blog when you were over with blogger and somehow I once again found you.
    And this time I add you to my coffee pals

    Curling should be wicked fun!!!! (I always thought it was, anyways)

    I’m sure she’ll outgrow the she-mullet eventually. She’s damn cute with it anyways! And Rita’s got one too, at this point. Could mullets be the new baby style??? God help us. hahaha

    Oh, curling. I don’t really get it, but perhaps that has something to me with my complete loathing of (almost) all sports. I did not know that curling was considered chess on ice. Hey, I learned something today! And Viv is so cute!

    Bonspiel is one of the best words ever. But I refuse to acknowledge anything making use of a broom as a sport.

    Although, Men With Brooms is an awesome flick. (and Paul Gross lives just down the road in Stratford!)

    We get CBC here and I’ll watch the curling championships when they come once a year or so. My husband always watches, too…we just can’t turn the t.v. off…it cracks me up.

    Bowling doesn’t do this to us, so why would curling? Hmmm…
