Saving the world in... er, with your underwear

My former home-town is having a most-ridiculous debate. Aurora is at odds with laundry lines. Thankfully, it appears that the municipal government is pushing the issue. If advertisers use laundry lines to make people feel all summery and clean, why are people worried about laundry messing-up their view... Of other houses? It saddens me that this needs to be an issue and that as more and more people recognize that the world is changing we still forgo small things that could have a benefit (even if it is just hanging your undies out to dry).

I apologize for having been AWOL recently. A combination of busyness and not knowing what to write made this a dull place to be. I'll try to be better. Really.

And time continues to fly. The weekend was a great opportunity to be with friends and family. It turns out Monday was the same as my dad was in town for work-related stuff. It was like the weekend extended (except for the having to work all day part).

Life is busy. Good busy. Projects at work, ultimate and being social are making life feel like it is going quickly. Thankfully it is all good. It may mean more spotty posts (as has obviously been the case recently) but you've got better things to be doing than reading my musings anyway. The warm weather is (supposed to be) coming. I wish someone would tell tonight's forecast low of 4 degrees that.

Another apology. Few posts. Not because I don't care. Just plenty of things to do. I hope this finds you well as I head off to the GTA again. Treat K-town well in my absence. No getting into trouble, y'hear?!

Sorry it's been a while since I posted. I am going to cheat and keep this short but if you've ever thought "I have too much money", take a look at the most expensive wedding I've ever heard of. Here I thought it was crazy when people were spending tens of thousands of dollars on weddings. What about $55 Million US?

Not to be forgotten

Unfortunately, I am not being a great global citizen and drawing your attention to the fact that today is Remembrance Day in The Netherlands (though I guess I have done that now). Instead, I am adding to the e-detritus that continues to circle the globe in the "tubes" that make up this, the interweb. It turns out that today is a day that, disappointingly for all around me, I am not adequately celebrating (though it is early yet). Today is: No Pants Day!. Celebrate it as best you can, just remember: "people are encouraged to revel in the absence of pants, and not replace pants with other clothing."

Where does the week go?

It seems like the weekend has just ended and it is already Thursday morning. I must admit, I'm not too worried about where the time has gone. I was nervous heading into this week but it is progressing along fine. The most challenging thing I've faced is getting about 200 copies of the same e-mail message over the course of the past 24 hours. You know if the most challenging thing you face can be solved by hitting the delete button, you're not doing too bad. :)
