Catchin' Up

Well, Philippe's new address is MTL. Maryse took some pictures when she was down on the weekend. Here's a shot of his apartment...
And the view from the back of the apartment....
Les gars...

He's settling in and currently looking for a summer job to save up before starting UQAM in the fall. Good luck Philippe!

Here at home I was supposed to spend the day fishing with Pierre. Don't know what happened...I was ready to go but no sign of Pierre. So, spent the day undertaking a very different activity - putting together 4 new CD towers. The "wall of sound" continues to grow. Held off buying these. Seems IKEA discontinued the ones I had and I had to decide on an "off-colour" model. I chose a darker wood model and it actually looks quite good.

Not bad for a day's work...

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
