From the “Infrequent Blogging” Dept.
It’s sunny, no humidity—a nice day. It’s a very comfortable 27ºC.
I don’t want to work…I don’t think anybody in the office want’s to work.
Lots of stuff has happened over the past two-plus weeks that I since wrote in my log. My work at Critical Path has gotten much more intense (which is why I haven’t written), the ASB#2 video has been filmed (thanks for Mendel and Dave flying from Tokyo and Milwalkee for the shoot, respectively), and Eric and Aneil came back from Asia with amazing stories and pictures.
My heart goes out to Arthur and Angela’s father. He suffered his second heart attack, but fortunately all indications are that it was small, and that his high fitness-level (he was playing tennis at the time) will lead to a quick and full recovery. Sometimes when you do everything right, something bad still happens.
Jen and I are still good. Jen, Florence, Cris, and Kevin went to Boston for the long weekend. To be honest, I wasn’t that hyped on going. Several reasons really:
- Quoting Aneil, “I think it’s only appropriate that we spend Canada Day in Canada,
- I don’t have any money, because I don’t get paid until the end of my contract (mid July),
- and the biggest reason: I have a sh*tload of work to do (deliverables are due).
I worked at home last Wednesday. I had a tough time trying to explain to my father that I could use the extra 2 hours of time working, rather than commuting from Markham to TO and back. I went for a run down the Rouge Valley with my Brother and Eric. The run really kicked-my-ass. Sore joints…had to stop at the 25 minute mark, and start walking-running intervals for the rest of the leg. Sorry, Eric, i couldn’t give you something more competitive.
Well, all the frequent running, and regular work outs…I’ve lost 3 pounds.
I still have to do more Abdominal work though. Got to get rid of the roll of fat.
I was reading a report that I wrote for Critical Path last year (it’s the template of the reports that I’m using now). Wow. I’m the type of person that tends to dismiss the stuff that I had written in the past…but I have to admit, the report was solid. Very solid.
Have you ever written something back in high school or university that you thought was great, but when you read it now, you shudder at how infantile it sounds? That happens to me all the time.
This weekend is basically work, work, work, and more work. I’m going out with Clement, Leo, Ann, and John to On the Curve for dinner and drinks. After that, I’m skeptical that I’ll be able to go fishing on Sunday or up to Jamie’s cottage as I had initially planned.
Life is like that sometimes. It sucks, so I’ll get over it now.
There. I’m over it. 😀
Cheers guys. I hope all of your weekends will be more eventful than mine.
Back to work.
