goodbye to you all

Friday, June 4, 2004

This may be my last post ever as I am taking my life in my hands and going with Mark in his 2 seater plane to the Isle of Wight this weekend. Too bad, since Bembridge looks quite scenic!

We were planning to go to Sandown, also on the island, for Saturday and Sunday but we realised earlier this week that there might be an issue with the D-Day celebrations this weekend. And there was – we can’t fly to that airport. So the other airfield choice is Bembridge. But is it a good idea to be flying a small German plan on D-Day? I think not. We are probably going to fall into small stretch of Atlantic between the island and mainland UK! So farewell!

If we do make it there, we are staying at the Sea Change B&B which looks nice. The town is known for crab and lobster so Mark will be happy. And the good weather here is continuing so I think we will spend most of the weekend at the beach.

It has been a sloooooooow week at work with most people on holiday so I will be glad to be busy again next week.

Mark is tiling right now – thank god – as the bathroom is nowhere near being finished.

We didn’t work on it at all last night as we went to Canadian Comedy Nite at Canada House with Tami’s friend from Waterloo Dena and had a great time! Do you remember a terrible show called Ed’s Night Party on City tv? The co-host of that (e.g. not the damn sock), Craig Campbell, was the host last night and he was a RIOT. Really funny. And for the second year in a row, I got to see Phil Nichol, formerly of Corky and the Juice Pigs, perform the Gay Eskimo song. Alas no Grandma being used as a skateboard this year. Anyway, we had a lot of fun and there was Moosehead and Inniskillen wine all around.

Better go and make some dinner and do some ‘supervising’ as my contribution to tiling efforts! ha ha
