andy & christine bbq

Ok, my goal is to Blather shorter but more often. :-)

Had fun hanging out with Jeff on the weekend. I purposely stayed offline most of the time since it was our ninth wedding anniversary. Geez. NINE YEARS. Unbelievable. :-) Jeff asked me what I'd like to do on our anniversary, and I said I'd just like to have a normal weekend just hanging out in Toronto. We had dinner at Canoe for our that restaurant. It's fairly pricey, tho, so we tend to eat there only once a year.

The rest of the weekend: going to Fune with Scott Murray, doing some computer toy shopping: new Wacom artpad that works with my computer; maybe I'll start up my comic strip again :), portable Palm keyboard, bigger USB hub, The Sims. I hold John Durno and Paul Kwinn responsible for me buying The Sims. Much, much more on The Sims in a future Blathering. :-)

Dropped by Andy and Christine's bbq, which was lots of fun. Got to hang out with old friends. Celebrated by father's 69th birthday on Sunday, played with Sara and Annie. On the way back to Philadelphia, waited two hours at the airport (part of the time actually on the plane) before finding out my flight was cancelled. Rebooked for the first flight back the next morning, which meant I had to get up at 4:30 a.m., argh. I'm a morning person, but not THAT much of a morning person! My flight back the next morning was delayed as well. It's gotten to the point where I'm shocked if a flight goes smoothly.

I am going to shut up now. Too much to say, too little time. More tomorrow, I think.
