Way back when i was bending over to pick something up and got too close to a cup sitting on the floor with a straw in it.

Tried to take a core sample of my eye.

actually got the straw stuck in my cornea.

It really hurt.

A lot.

Blinking funny for a long time.

Good night.

Chocolate swirl cheese cake

The local Save-on foods sells this brand of chocolate swirl cheese cake.

This stuff is a party in your mouth,it is almost better than sex.

wait,i have not had sex in so long I cannot really compare anything to it as I cannot rember what it is like.

Sigh,now I am depressed,I shall eat cheese cake out of frustration.

Damn fine cheese cake.

The trip out, we figured we had over 1200 pounds of meat popsicles in the van before baggage.

the day started as a good Regina games day, totally miserable. The Regina highland games are noted for one thing, crap weather.

Don't i look so happy to be there?

Jimmy is happy to be there too.

Jimmy winding up with the 28 pound for distance.

Big Joe Taylor starting his wind up also.

The lady competitors.

Jimmy preparing for a big push.

Kelly strachan winding up the 16 pound scott's hammer

Doug Campbell, our host and the man who loves this stuff so much that he puts these games on every year and works hard to make them a good time- Cheers Douglas

Bobby Brown running the caber.

The dude behind him doing the judging is Allan Sims. He and 2 pals came from Scotland for these games for the fun of it. Allan has thrown with the likes of Bill Anderson,his brother Grant, Hamish Davidson and Douglas Edmunds. These are some of of the legends in modern highland games, these are the guys who set the bar for what we do. Soooooooo cool.

Near the end of the day and the weather took an about face and became freaking nice. Nothing like getting all 4 seasons in a single day.

Bob and I after a good day of throwing.

asked of a dude who analyses airplane crashes since he was privy to the statistics where the safest place in an airliner is, whether he would sit in the front of the plane or the rear.

his answer was "I prefer first class"

Off to regina for a couple of days

I shall be gone for 2 days. I know you are all devastated that I shall not be about reading your blogs and commenting on them. You will have to be strong, life is hard at times.

Holy wildlife batman !!

This morning about half way up Groat road (you would know if you lived in Edmonton) a beaver was meandering along the sidewalk ,who would of thunk, never seen a wild beaver before, only in the zoo.

Coming home from work in the ditch 3 buildings down from the one I work in where a pair of canada geese with 5 gosslings. Curiosly they have very short necks, the growth spurt must be hell.

What a scintillating book

read about it here

If you are a queasy sort of person i suggest you avoid this book but it certainly explores those things in life that most will not talk about and the benifits we gain from this dark world are countless.

I have aquired a weapon of mass destruction.
With this rocket I rain havoc down upon your heads.
You shall all grovel at my feet and I may show you mercy if I am so inclined.
I shall rule the known universe with my missle of doom.

just ate a whole pineapple

it was good

hence why I ate the entire thing

can one eat too much pineapple?

or does one just suffer devastating after affects?

like a bowel movement with the PH of sulfuric acid

time will tell

muscle of the day that has not been posted in weeks

ok what shall it be, I have been delinquent in this aspect of the old blog-o-rama but i am now perusing my copy of Anatomy of Movement by Blandine Calais-Germain. It is an anatomy book written from the perspective of a dancer, I highly recommend this book if anatomy is one of those things that gets you moist.

Let us check out the latissmus dorsi.

this is your main back muscle, the one that gives you that awesome v shape. It originates on the iliac crest( your hip bones) via the thoracolumbar aponeurosis ( a broad sheet of tendon) and spinous processes of the last 3-6 (depends on which anatomy book you read) thoracic vertabrae ( the little blade thingies that stick straight back off of your spine. the thoracic vertabrae start about 2-4 inches above your butt crack )and your lower ribs.

the lats as they are known in gym speak insert on the lesser tubercle of the humerus which is actually the front upper knob of the arm bone buried under all that meat just above your biceps.

what it does, well when you are on your 53 chin up you will be feeling the old lats yes indeed. the lats also medially rotate the shoulders, you know who you are, walking around with your chest caved in and your shoulders rolled forward. I see that and I just cringe, far too many of you peoples do that, stand up, stick your chest out, let the world see the goods.

you have been told.

Of cutting torches and a french car.

So the r8 is stranded helpessly upon it's roof as seen in the pictures below and my mission is to excise the front suspension parts. I eyeball all the rusty bolts in tight spots and am thinking merde, this is gonna suck to pull all this out of there.

Fire- man has harnessed it, refined it, put it under the yoke of sevitude. I shall impart the sevices of fire in my quest to remove the front bits of the forlorne renault. Out comes the cutting torch or as we affectionatly call it-the gas axe- and I proceed to divest the car of it's front cross member.

I cut something off the fire wall and lo- fire escapes it's yoke and rampages with feirce abandon. the floor matts are still glued to the floor and guess what,they like to burn.


I walk into the shop calling out that I need a fire extinguisher. no on seems to care. so I request louder and the guys are all looking at me with blank stares.

Fire, what is this fire you speak of, describe this fire?

Me-the fucking car is burning!!!!!!!!! - quite loudly

one the guys peers out and sees that indeed there is oily black smoke belching forth from the inverted shell of the renault and decides that it is probaly not a bad idea to give me a fire fighting device.

Every one follows me out to observe my stunning skills at smothering rampant flames which at the point are pretty big and moocho intense. Takes about a minute but the job is done and the stench of burning rubber and extinguisher powder is quite prevalent.

The boys retire to the shop and I survey the craptacularness of the whole situation when up the alley come a dude to find out what is going on. This is the surreal part, the guy is in a french beret and one of those side ways striped french shirts and he even has a little french moustache but alas no french accent. This is kinda weird as I was burning a french car. fucked up world.

that is all I got.
