So begins our anniversary weekend eat-a-thon. Today we will be commencing with dim sum with the family, grocery shopping and the possibility of a movie for mommy and daddy. We're playing it by ear.
Yesterday the stupendously awesome Middle Aged Woman gave me a Kick Ass Blogger award. Unfortunately there's something wrong with the site this morning so I can't add it here yet. I'll do it Monday when there's more traffic and I can gloat to a wider audience. In the mean time I will distract you with pretty pictures.

WTF? you ask? It's water on wood. Yes, that's right. But it is water beading on top of the wood that I painstakingly sanded and painted. Beading.

Looking at that sun deck this morning I can see that my sanding was not quite as thorough as I thought it would be so if you ever come by just smile when I tell you it was built entirely of reclaimed wood. That seems to be the vogue in home renos these days so I look good and cover up my shoddy workmanship at the same time.
Last night the Olympics began and if you didn't watch the opening ceremonies you SO MISSED OUT. I feel sorry for all the future Olympic organizers who have to try and compete with that, because they can't. Zhang Yi Mou, 15,000 performers, $380 million dollar budget and a talent pool of 1.5 billion. Although really, all they needed was that gigantic 500 foot LCD screen that rolled out like a scroll and had people dancing on top of it. If I ever win the lottery I'm putting a lazy boy in my front yard then buying the other side of my street so I can knock down all their houses to put up that mo' fo.'
