Open the Window!

Oy. It's been a very busy week with an even busier weekend looming. Brad has been working out at his dad's place on his laptop during the afternoons this week. He's lucky in that he can basically work anyplace where he can crank up his laptop. His father is finding it difficult and very quiet to be home by himself. Brad is going to take him on a daytrip to the coast on Saturday and Brad's sister may go, too. This is also a weekend that I go to my mother's and stock her up on supplies. Brad is out getting that stuff right now. I don't know when we'll get our groceries. Enh... It will all fall into place. It always does.

And freaking Sarah Palin, eh. Unbelievable. Her appeal. As I read somewhere this week online, she's like an adolescent girl, a popular one, but also a mean one. I was watching the news the other night and they showed McCain and that Stepford wife of his (ha, almost typed Crawford wife there) and I thought to myself, how on earth could ANYONE in their right mind vote for this person (and that awful Sarah Palin). Ewww.

And the stock market's crashing, eh. Well, things were up a bit today, but generally it's doom and gloom. The TSX has has lost close to 3,000 points in the last 2 or 3 months. Again, unbelievable. Thankfully I saw this coming and moved my meager investments into a safe GIC back in April. George Bush has run every company he's ever been in charge of into the ground, so I figured he and his cronies would do the same to the American economy. And when the USA sneezes, as they say, Canada catches a cold.

And speaking of cold...there is a FROST warning out for tonight! The temperature is supposed to fall to minus 1 C (about 30 F). Can you imagine!? It's a little early, but what can you do? That said, fall is my favourite season of the year. Soon we'll be lighting a fire in the fireplace and toasting chestnuts in the embers (totally kidding about that last bit). I DO love fall, though, just not what follows.

Here's Kate Bush with Wuthering Heights

Hope you two busy boys make time for each other!
