My Grandmother's 80th

Well after being back in Ottawa and now on "Vancouver" time still. My body hasn't yet bothered to want to change to the local time zone. I went to bed at my "typical" Vancouver time of 0400H (0700H EDT). Wonderful to go to bed as the sun is rising and then to awake at 1600H to your buddy from high-school calling.

Shortly there after I got dressed up to go downtown to the Chateaux Laurier to have drinks with my relatives. (Nothing like beer at 5:30 pm for breakfast). Then off to "Fridays" on Elgin Street. Relatively fancy 'steak' house, much more so than the keg, but probably less so than Gotham (never been).

Anyways. Good food. Some good wine and a great time catching up with my relatives. Some of my cousins are growing up so fast. It is crazy. (I am the oldest of my generation).

Now I'm stuffed full of roast-beef and potatoes and yorkshire puds. (TimE: I told my Grandmother about the puds on the BBQ, she thought that was awesome. I think her exact words were: "That's an excellent idea.")

Anyways. I hope everyone else is preparing for their holiday or enjoying it already.

I hoped you stressed:
Sunflower oil - good,
sesame oil - BAD.

I wouldn't want anyone's grandparents on my conscience.

This kind of reminds me of the "432"'s comic:

Good: Walking your neighbours dog.
Bad: Woking your neighbours dog.
