Ok ... I wear a ring on my left hand on the finger next to the pinky...

this girl at work has always been nice to me.. Ya I know I am the boss... but most people get pissy with thier boss one time or anouther.. not this lady and then last night she asked what I do for fun? I said not much... I work too damn much.. she talked more.. Then it was like... OMG she is hitting on me.. I had to do the thanks, I am flattered thing... then I had to report it... the store has a very strict rules about this kinda thing.. to protect myself... Then I thought.. would anyone believe it? I am not the most handsome guy in the world.. all in all the whole thing just gave me the creeps... I love my gurl...

secondly... it is freaking snowing out... -4 and SNOWING!!! in April.. almost may... I BBQ'd yesterday in the snow with my touque on.. WTF... Summer are you out there? I sorry I said bad things about the sun and how it burns my pastey white skin... (I am not taking back what I said about the mosquitos)

4. Maybe paint the trim on the outside of the house...Blue of course.
#3&4 are being postponed till there is more heat outside,,,

I have already cleaned the kitchen.. woot!

While stuck in trafic.. I roll down the window and listen to the car beside me and try to match my radio station to the car next to me so I can bob my head in sync with them.. it frightens some and amuses others.

Home and Native land

There in the picture is the Riding mountain, We went on a road trip today, and I got to think I love living in the grass lands of central Canada, I have lived in many different places across this country but always in the prairies, I would feel so forein out side of the flatlands, I don't know if I could cope without the fantastic lightning shows and seeing gold wheat, and cows for as far as the eye can see.. It just makes me feel good to be in the place that I am in..

End post

Mr. Beaver

Almost every small town in this great flat land that I grew up in has one of these,,, it is either a mascot, or a "Worlds Lagest" anyway.. I think I will cronical the larger than Life statues as we adventure across the flat lands.. This is a beaver with a sweater and a ball cap.. Y ? I duno but the peeps of Duaphin MB are proud of him...even if his tail is missing Shhhhh maybe he doesnt know..

Is this a canadian thing do yall have these in the US too?

No I am not talking about the music type..

Duno why I just feel like hell today and it started last night at work.. I was doing fine and Bang... My head started swimming.. and I couldnt make any sence of anything anyone was saying... Kinda like being a student in Charlie Browns class.. Alls I heard was Wamp wamp wamp wamp waaaaa... I hate feeling stupid.. I dont think I am the smartest guy in the world but last few days it has been like "talk slow and dont use any big words for me."

Today I said something stupid to my gurl.. I called her old... I know I know... never tell a newly thirtyish person they are old... I got it.. but it is because I am not feeling right that I am speaking without thinking.. I know that doesnt make it ok to be a jackass thou...

I whent to work and said to hell with this.. and I whent home.. I feel like shit and I am going home.. I am allowed 1 Personal day a year.. and I just took it my first one in 4 years.

So I am doing what I want to do tonight and that is Jack squat... I am making brownies to cheer myself up.. listining the the music that helps.. It has always been Mary Chapin Carpenter for some reason.. even in high school it was my moody teenager music.. there is something about it that helps.. duno.

My gurl is being super suportive even thou I was an ass today.. thats why I lover her so much.. She puts up with alot.. thanks sweetie..

I wish I had something witty and fun to say but this is it.. thats all.. stick a fork in me ..

Me.. No Y? I just realize that I am strong

I help him and do the rest of the tool chests and do some deep thinking 2 days ago someone asked me to put there water in their trunk while I was walking through the parking lot of the store.

I am built like a wieght lifter .. not a body builder but like the guys that do the big lifts on the olympics.. not that I am that strong but after the tool box thing last night I started randomly lifting things that have the weights written on them.. they have to for somethings that come in from out of country..

1. Aloo Gobi<- Indian potato and califlower dish.
2. Stew
3. Spagetti

The bread came out great.. it will provide work sandwiches .. I just have to eat all my meals.. so that I can maintain and loose wieght..

Damn true I think

K the picture didnt work but this is a survey I stole from another blog..


You're always cheerful and happy. You don't usually
have bad moods, and you're very optimistic.
You're the kind of person that every one wants
to be friends with. You make mistakes like
everyone else, but you can always fix them. You
have a great talent of seeing beyond people's
appearances. You have a lot of friends, but are
shy with strangers. But once you get to know
people, you warm right up! So in other words,
everyone loves you! Can I hug you?
