On a day like this, I can’t diss anyone – even Harper!

Ah. ‘Tis one of those o-too-rare Ottawa days where the sun is shining, the temps are comfortable, there’s a little breeze in the air and even the kids cooperated by not making my early morning too onerous!

Ah.

I want to bottle up days like these and open them a little during the dark and depression inducing days of January…

Ah.

What kind of negative or critical scribblings can I come up with? Hmmm… well, went golfing this morning… and, as usual, I was reminded of just how bad a golfer I really am.

But even THAT didn’t matter. It was a fun day in the sun with friends, muskrats and gophers.  I only lost a few balls and didn’t re-injure my latissimus muscle.

I just scoured the news for something to rant on about re: Our Glorious Leader.  But even the robotman is behaving himself these days. Yeah, there was that whole Catholic faux-pas thing, but who really cares, eh? It is an outdated ritual that belongs in the Dark Ages anyways. Big freakin’ deal.  C’mon Grits – let it go.. if I’m not getting my knickers in a twist about this, then surely your target market ain’t taking it too seriously either.

The subunits are amusing me more than usual lately. The teenmonster has her face “bolt” removed yesterday – her body was rejecting the fact that there was a steel rod embedded just above her cheekbone – go figger.  Addy has been really cuddly lately and was very exciting to start “Treehouse” at her daycare – one level older plus all of her friends had ben transferred there… made her week!

And the O-ster has been speaking SO MUCH lately. Coll stuff that I have NO idea from where he could have picked such phrases as “Cool, man” “OK daddy-O” and, his latest, “bee-zarre dude…”

I love warping molding young minds and personalities.

All in all, Trashy is a happy dude today and is looking forward to a weekend with the family. Yeah, it’s supposed to rain tomorrow, but then clear up again on Sunday…

Summer in Canada – gotta love it.

    I hope Saturday didn’t dampen those sunny spirits of yours too much! Much as I’m enjoying not having snow and sub-zero temperatures, it would be nice if days like Friday weren’t the exception when it’s supposed to be summer. We only get a few weeks of “summer”, so you’d think it could at least be hot, hot, hot so that by the time September rolls around we’re looking forward to cooler weather.

    On another note, I’d be interested to know what reaction your teen had with the facial bolt? Mine just has run-of-the-mill pierced ears (which she had to fight for) and now wants “other” piercings. I’d appreciate all the ammunition I can get to deny her permission for this. Thanks

      Hey XUP – the facial bolt – technically called an “anti-eyebrow” was a real pain in the butt thing to look after. It had to be cleaning fastidiously every day and she could put make-up in the area around the perforation. Her skin was looking a little blue immediately under the metal and I STRONGLY suggested that she see about it – meaning that she should go to a Doctor. Of course, she didn’t do exactly that but did go back to Silverline to have the piercer look at it. Sure enough, Torii has a good immunity system happening in her teen body and it was rejecting the metal. The piercer took it out and the kids should have a scar.
      Now if she would only get rid of the tongue piercing…
      Major points to mention to the potential “piercee”:
      1) They really hurt
      2) Big hassle to maintain. I think my teen was actually a little relieved to have a reason to take it out.
      3) They really, really hurt.
      4) They can get infected… big problems and scarring
      5) The body can reject – and if that isn’t looked after quickly enough, major scarring
