I don’t even know where to start; I guess the first thing can be how Chin looked at me yesterday and remarked that we had only left Cobourg four days ago. Bullshit, it has to be longer than that. We left Friday at 11 AM, drove for thirty three hours, snuggled up for warmth in Lanigan SK on Saturday night and lost a nipple to frostbite the next morning. Saskatoon, The Battlefords, Lloydminster, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Dawson Creek and Hudson’s Hope by Sunday. Wow, I must need more sleep, because it seems like we’ve been out here for a week. Now I have to wait until Saturday to take my first aid, and Chin is getting his H2S tomorrow, so I’m going to have lunch with Yvette, and try to see Byron and Lisa, Kimmy and Cory, and the Brock/Trena team. I imagine Byron will be busy, because he just got elected to city council, and they really couldn’t have picked better for the job. He’s a great person, and he really cares about his town and the people in it. He would be the one friend of mine that I’d trust to make where I live a better place. I hope Kimmy won’t be too busy for me to drop by with a coffee, because I haven’t seen her in many years, and I miss her smiling face. I would also like to meet this perverted looking husband of hers, but I imagine he can’t match my skeeviness.
I also want to mention how much I miss my one true love. She makes me heartsick, just by sending me a message with a smiley face and a sweet note. I picture her smile, and I feel like I’m the luckiest guy in the world, but at the same time, the stupidest. She can bring tears to my eyes with just a photo of her smile, or a loving word. I ache when we’re apart, and when I fell asleep while writing this blog post, I almost decided that I was going home at Christmas and not coming back. I know it was just because Im exhausted, but I miss my family so much, and I torture myself by wondering what they are doing at different times of the day. I’m going to try a webcam from here this week, and hope I can see them, even though I know I’ll be bawling through it. I got so used to seeing them everyday that I forgot how hard it is to not see them, and now I get all moistened up when I think of them at home without me. Booooo, but I guess it’s better than not having the option to do this. Mrs. B joked last night that we wouldn’t do this again, unless we needed bail money for the kids, but only for a serious crime like murder. If they just get six months or something, they can stay there, and I agree.
Third point of business is Therapy Thursdays. I think we’re going to shut it down, due to lack of interest, so I’m going to take Ideas for it’s replacement, or for a different themed day. I don’t like having to pander for people to send in problems, because that just means that no one is as interested as I am, and that’s okay, people rarely are. Anyhow, if you have an idea for something fun for us to do, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll try to figure something out. Hey, no hard feelings.
Now I want to say that I have amassed an amazing bunch of friends, and I love you all. I would especially like to thank Aaron and Lannie for housing us for so long. It’s one thing to invite a friend in, but to welcome my friend as well, speaks volumes about them or the magnetism of Chin. I guess I’m pretty lucky, or really skillful at friend hunting, because I’m constantly impressed with how things have turned out in that department. Give yourselves a pat on the back for me.
I’m alright, nobody worry ’bout me,
