I've got three more weeks till I see friends Andrew and Heather in Calgary and as much as I can't wait - I'm thinking about maybe going to Chicago or Philidelphia for a few days in April - Philidelphia has the Duchamp museum - Chicago would be cool since I'm reading a book about the world fair murders.
After drinking last night I'm looking forward to crashing after work - and then to see Something about Reptiles (Turkish Canadian band - kind of caberet style) at the Rime. Saw them a dark december a long time ago - the lead wore crush velvet red - Aeran, Catherine, Sue and I dressed up in coctail dresses.
Aside from the lead singer, the band was essentally a Canadian ensemble of accordian, clarinet, bongos, guitar and whatever else. Singled out was this old, dark haired woman whose voice bellowed low sombre tones. The clarinet player played as if her notes spiraled around this old woman's words.
I saw them maybe a year later with Catherine and Sarah. They brought sashes and sequin costumes for the audience to wear and performed a hokey version of 'I Will Survive.' I didn't like the photography hanging on the walls there so I switched around the title cards until I was more satisfied.

Under Natasha's command:

I'm copying Natasha and asking any of you to please post a memory of me - anything you want, good or bad. I don't know why, but Natasha says to do it so please do it. Thanks, Sharon

What now?

The winter sun makes the air soothing and crisp. A few days ago, I took advantage of this rare weather and walked my dog in Minnikada. As usual, I lost the path and spent forty minutes looking for the Upper Knoll (great view from there). As usual, I slipped and fell in mud. It was an excellent hike.

I ran into someone from elementary school. We shook hands, chatted a bit and exchanged phone numbers. I want to meet up with him and apologize for being such a bitch to him in elementary school. I was surprised how nice he was when we recognized eachother. On a sidenote, he's saving his money to go to flight school and become a bush pilot - How cool is that?

I've been seeing someone - first time in a long time - I think he's great. However it's going to be short and sweet - he going to leave for Australia in a couple of weeks. Hope to stay in touch as friends.

When I saw how beautiful the weather is today, I just wanted to get in the car, grab someone and drive to Harrison. I don't really care about Harrison as much as I love the drive there. And besides, could hang out on the cold beach for a while and make fun of the Sasquatch statues.

I guess I have that travelling urge again - good thing I'm flying to Calgary in March to visit awesome friends Andrew and Heather.
