It's a holiday today for many people being as yesterday was Canada Day and tomorrow is the weekend. I wasn't feeling so great this morning (and it wasn't due to alchohol), so I went into work around noon when I was feeling better. I assume that while my excellent immune system was fending off a summer cold that Amanda tried to give to me, a stomach bug slipped by.

Yesterday I went with Erin, Jamie & Jake to Erin's parents lakehouse at a marina in Sarnia/Pt. Edward. It was quite nice, and the yacht was very nice too. We took a tour out into the lake (and then turned around due to choppy waters) and then up the river a bit, then docked to watch the fireworks and swim in the river. The fireworks were possibly the best fireworks I have ever seen. But I haven't been to any good fireworks in my life, apparently. We got chinese food delivered right to the boat too!

I've pretty much decided to keep my new camera phone, even though it seems not to be as reception-oriented as my old one and it takes crappy pictures. I didn't want a camera phone (due to the poor quality of pictures taken), but the selection was SO poor at Bell that I was forced to choose one. I've instituted an 8 month payment plan with my budget to deal with the outrageous costs

It's Canada day tomorrow, so it's like a Friday today. A keg party is scheduled for this weekend at the McKeen Farm.

Liberal's Win Minority

I wanted them to win, boo to the right half of the political spectrum. Who cares if 100M of our hard earned money gets embroiled in a scandal. The real tragedy would be if the money was destroyed or lost. It'll trickle back down to the taxpayers eventually, right? :)

It's a Miracle!

It's a Miracle! My old waterlogged phone works again!!! Unfortunately the outside LCD screen, the vibrator and most tragically the phonebook didn't make it.

Update: The vibrator works! [Mon Jun 28/04 12:20pm]
Update: The outside LCD works! [Mon Jun 28/04 1:55pm]
Update: The main LCD no longer works! :( [Mon Jun 28/04 10pm]
Update: I guess the phone hit it's apogee when the outside LCD repaired itself. Perhaps I'll try to send it in for a warranty repair [Mon Jun 28/04 11:59pm]

Turkey Fest was last night, we had a ball. Many of us drank prior at Scott/Sean's parents (they were out of town), and hot-tubbed it up. I managed to wear my cell phone into the hot tub without noticing for approximately 15 minutes. I've purchased a new Sanyo 8100 colour camera phone to replace it (but I'm on the verge of returning it due to no apparent ring/vibrate feature!!!!).

Most of us managed to sneak into the concert area which is the only place they were serving alchohol. ($25 was the cost!). I ran into my Mom and apparently my brother was there but I missed him. (Yes I have a brother).

The Turkey liberation event didn't go off as planned. There was a lack of cars, and an opposing group of people, some of which were not very happy about the freeing of Turkeys. All of the Turkeys were eventually returned after the most exciting field trip of their short little lives. Mine had the most exciting fieldtrip, all the way to London from Strathroy, and back through Mount Brydges for a 2 hour romp in my mom's backyard. She wanted to keep them, but the family cat likely had other plans for them. After filling up on bugs and LOVE, back to the turkey prison they went. I was soured by all the negative reactions to the turkey liberation so I didn't even try to find them a home.
