The weekend

Hi all,

What are you doing this weekend? I find myself living for the weekends these days. I am heading out to The Beer Festival tonight. If you've never been, then I highly recommend it. I've gone the past few years. Last year was the best as we managed to meet an entire hockey team. Left the festival quite drunk since they kept giving us tokens. We'll have to chug tonight as we'll only have a couple of hours. You know what will happen then. We'll end up at a club or bar as usual. Who wants to go home at 8pm on a Friday night? Things will just be getting started! I checked the music listings and nothing really sparked my interest, so may just pop into the usual spot for a drink (Horseshoe Tavern).

Tomorrow it's off to the Hot and Spicy Festival with Hugh. I'm looking forward to it of course. Hopefully the festival is better than last years.

Sunday I'll watch my Corrie early in the morning, and then I'm off to go kayaking in Toronto Harbour. It's through Linkup, but Tracey is going. Should be fun! I've been wanting to rent one for awhile now since I'm thinking of purchasing a kayak. It's been years since I've been in a kayak, so I don't even know if I'll still like it. If so then I can keep one down at the boat club (BPYC) at no extra charge.

That's all for this weekend. Next weekend I'm heading out to Rick and Patty's in Ajax for the day on Saturday. We'll probably watch a flick, and he has mentioned making his famous corn beef hash (don't ask). Next Sunday I'm hoping to get together with Liz. I'd love to play a game of golf. I'll suggest it and see what she thinks. I haven't seen or talked to her in ages.

Cheers all,

How hot is too hot?

I think this past weekend has been too hot! I'm not complaining though! the heat is all good.

Didn't do what I wanted to this weekend. I wanted to spend it sailing, but we went to start up the boat yesterday and the battery was dead. That's what I get for not starting the motor the past few weeks. So of course it needs to charge for atleast 24 hours. I ended up just chilling down at the boat club with some wine, and good friends. All in all not a bad time at all!! Today we didn't get out either. I ended up in Oshawa at the Harley Davidson dealership, and then a couple of malls to look for some shoes. Got a cute pair of shoes, and an orange skirt.

My friends Martin and Nikki are coming over from England in a couple of weeks. We're heading up to North Bay, and going to the Heritage Festival (Stompin' Tom!), and also going to a friend's friends 70th birthday party. I can wear my orange skirt as everyone has been instructed to wear something orange.

Went to the film festival recruitment session last week. I signed up for 6 theatre shifts. I don't know what the hell I was thinking. As usual I over do it. It's always a good time though, and hopefully I'll manage to catch some great films... two words for you "Brad Pitt"! rumour is he may make an appearance. Keep it on the down low though as it's just a rumour.

Back to work tomorrow. I am dreading it! don't know why. I have a Coronation Street gathering to look forward to on Tuesday, and then I'm heading to Hugh's Room to see Martyn Joseph on Wednesday. Then Saturday I'm off to the Highland of Durham Games in Uxbridge. It's my favourite festival of the year so there's lots to look forward to.

Take care all, and have a good week. I'll try to type more often so these don't get so long.

My life has been full of a lot of finallys (is that a word?) lately.

Finally I am writing my first blog entry.
Finally I found a new job after quitting my old one.
Finally I made contact with a very old friend.
Finally I got on a Harley Davidson motorcycle.
Finally I told someone I loved them.
Finally I have become an adult (it just sort of hit me).

See I told you. Lots of them. Some of them sound pretty simple and small don't they? Like riding a harley.. that was the hardest!! (I was scared to death!)

I feel as though life is about to start, and I say bring it on!
