I remember playing this game when I worked at the airport. I wasn’t very good at it. As you can see, it’s not an easy game. It’s not a complicated game,

in fact, it’s a lot of fun, but it’s all about timing.

What A Day!

                Despite the car accident, today was a great day! I got up at 12pm, and went to meet my a friend of mine at Smitty’s here in Leduc. She was a no-show, but had good reason, she had a stomach flu today. Well, that was disappointing, as I know I won’t have another chance to see her while I’m here. I ordered some pancakes and came home to start watching a movie before we planned to go to the Outback Steakhouse. Well, we left a little after 4pm. Roads were icey (still very much are), but Dad’s a very skilled driver, so we didn’t think much of it. We were on highway 2 not even 2 minutes when we literally saw a chain reaction car accident happen about a quarter-mile ahead of us. Thanks to the black ice, Dad had a hell of a time stopping, even at 65 kph, and we ended up being part of it! Thanks to our guardian angels or whatever you choose to believe in, we got the equivalent of a fender-bender. All involved were shaken, but unhurt. Two of the cars (at least one) were a write-off. We were thankful enough to drive away and go to Zambelli’s here in Leduc instead. Wise choice, we agreed. As we drove to the restaurant, we could see cars inching their way along the highway. Smart move. so, the guy that hit us, his insurance, will cover our damage (or so I’m told). It was quite the experience. The calvary came to our rescue though. A fire truck, 2 ambulances, and four police cars. (see below or click here)

                Aside from that, we came home and I continued watching my movie. Didn’t finish it yet though, was too busy uploading Xmas and car accident pics. I also spent some time talking to one of my best friends, Kayla. Unfortunately, Skype was cutting in and out, so we ended the call ubruptly. Internet’s bogged down with people during the holidays. It sucks. Whatever, I’ll call her back tomorrow.

              Anyway, I’ve been writing this blog entry to wind down. I’m off to bed. Gonna get up early to go with Dad to the police station at 9am. I’ll quite enjoy that, as I can’t help but admire the police, fire, and ems for what they do!

Windows Vista – checkboxes

In Leduc for the Holidays

          The Greyhound trip from Lethbridge to Leduc went fairly well. It started out kinda rough. I decided to use garbage bags to bring my clothes and some technology stuff. I can’t afford a suitcase, and boxes didn’t make sense. Well, Greyhound no longer accepts garbage bags…which they decided to tell me 10 minutes before departure, leaving me to scramble in buying two boxes ($8), and stuffing everything in them. Once in Leduc, it turns out they mistakened the boxes as freight, and they’re sitting in Calgary. One did arrive Wednesday morning, but the other one is still there. Weird. Not impressed. They tag them, but don’t read them. Pointless. Idiots.

          On a positive note, I have now arranged at least 3 coffees with friends in the next week. I’m still hoping for a couple more, but some friends have yet to get back to me. I can’t wait to see them again! Speaking of friends, I’ll be making an effort to get a hold of some friends in Lethbridge, as well as those in central and eastern Canada, and some family, in the next week. I’m hoping I get everything done that I want to, if not, I’ll make some calls when I’m back in Lethbridge.

          As for Christmas, I’m nearly done getting gifts, I just have have to pick up a couple more things.

           I’m also getting in some time with the family. I’ve been hanging out with David mostly, though Dad and I are spending some time together on Thursday. Not sure when I’ll get some quality time with Mom, but that’ll happen, so I’m not worried.

           Anyway, there’s a quick update. I’m using my Dad’s Windows Vista system, since it’s in my old room, plus, as much as I’d rather not, it’s good to learn it. I’ve been using David’s Vista laptop as well.

Merry Christmas, Everyone! Be safe.
