Yesterday while getting dressed I put my toe through a small tear in my boxers. I used an exacto knife to cut the torn parts off and wore them anyway. Because I'm a man, and that's what we do.
It's Random Tuesday, deal with it.
That's Connor eating a piece of celery. C-E-L-E-R-Y. He just nonchalantly picked it up off of Supreme Leader's plate and started eating it. She immediately started hissing at me and pantomiming 'camera' and 'take a picture of this now or you're cooking for yourself forever.' She's talented like that.
My bank is all about convenience. Today I went in to get some US cash for our trip to the States this week. The teller swiped my card and gave me the money without asking for any ID, any PIN number or any security questions. Took all the fun out of stealing the card to begin with.
Remember Tron? They're filming a remake in Vancouver right now.
Speaking of movies. JJ Abrams (Heroes, Lost, Fringe, Alias, Felicity, Cloverfield and the new Star Trek movie) bought the rights to Stephen King's The Dark Tower series. King likes Abrams so much he sold him the rights for $19. If you read the series you'll get that.
My son Liam's temper is like a seismic event, a shifting of tectonic plates. Sudden, violent & totally unpredictable.
When I first found out I was going to be a father, the need to shout out "Hey! Get your peepee off the wall!" wasn't on the list of things I thought would come along with the job.
A couple of weeks ago Connor's class went to the aquarium for the day. Since it's a kindergarten/grade one mix Liam was allowed to come along too. Part of the tour was an educational segment that featured a puppet show with various types of sealife. One of them was Sammy the Salmon. A few nights ago before bath time Liam says, "Sammy the Salmon lives in here," pointing to his underwear. "Wake up, Sammy!" That's my boy.
Tuna tataki courtesy of Iron Chef Rob Feenie. Seared albacore tuna, green papaya slaw, orange, avocado, pine nuts and yuzu vinaigrette.
The tuna made love to my tongue while I slipped into a coma. Don't look at me like that, you don't understand how good that tuna was.
