Drinks with Leslie on Wednesday was inspirational. The trip to Airdrie was surprisingly short. I'm guessing the expansion of Calgary is rapidly closing the gap. It seemed I wasn't on the open road for more than a minute before I had to suddenly cut across four lanes to make my exit.

Leslie and I haven't seen each other in decades and I...

I have a button on my fridge, I bought it a while back when I was ordering Christmas presents from Think Geek. It says, simply, "I'm not deaf, I'm ignoring you."
It was funny at the time, and sometimes at work I'd like it to be true, but in general... it isn't.
I'm not ignoring you. I'm not ignoring...

This past weekend has been quite good. I haven't been this busy over a weekend since Solstice.

Thursday night I went to see Paul with Ronya. The movie is fun. It's not gut busting fun, and not quite as dead on in it's timing like Sean of the Dead or Hot Fuzz were, but it is fun. I think the major problem...

Misfits Walking
Being slightly bored and completely out of cash I've taken to downloading more TV shows to watch. I haven't gone back to Breaking Bad yet. I don't know why but somehow it's dark humor is a little too much dark and not enough humor for me. Maybe it's because I can't really identify with the characters.

So...

So I met with the sleep merchant this morning and went over the stats recorded by my CPAP machine. According to the machine I've been sleeping better than I thought. Could have fooled me, but it does indicate that I've been making slow but discernible progress over the past week.

I didn't have to ask the salesman to let me try the...

Well it's been ten nights and, so far, the best I can say is that my sleep is at about the same level it was before I started using the machine. The worst I can say? It has transformed sleeping from a relaxing goal unto itself to a chore that must be done each night.

I no longer look forward to going to sleep...

Bought myself an indulgence on Saturday. I went down to Epicure and purchased a fine bag of tobacco leaf. Two bags, actually. I bought my usual Royal Coachman, a good standard, and then I took a risk on an amusing name: "Bilbo's Leaf". As if that wasn't enough I was also tempted by a jar labeled "Answer 42".

I kid you not.

But...

I sometimes have trouble distinguishing between whats real and whats fantasy. I dont mean that Im a psycho or anything, its just that sometimes the fantasy world is more fun than the real world.

Sometimes I get so caught up in the fantasy that the real world has to try a little harder to get my attention.

Like the truck driver blaring his air horn...

So I picked up the CPAP machine this afternoon. The tech showed me how to set it up at his office and had me try it out in his recliner. To be honest I'm just about as intrigued by his chair as I am about the CPAP machine. It took me a minute to realize I wasn't having a dizzy moment but rather...

What did I learn last week?
That I can still write blog entries, but I'm rusty at it.

What was my greatest accomplishment over the past week?
Keeping my head at work. Losing M has put a lot of extra pressure on all of us. Also, creating the party video. It wasn't a lot of work, but I'm very proud of it...
