Normally I would be even more excited for the weekend - because it's a long weekend in Ontario - but I work in Quebec, so I have to work on Monday. Nuts.

The good news in this? Only six days remain until I have a week off. Yep. After work next Friday, I'll be flying to Colorado to play in a tournament. I'll be staying there until Tuesday (August 13) and then flying to Vancouver to play in another tournament (nationals) in Vancouver. It's going to be an exciting time.

I said a quick hello, but I guess I lied. Oops! Time for bed though. Have a great night, everyone! We're so close to that 100 Days to Christmas Season milestone!
Good luck with the tournament Brent. Enjoy your week off

Holiday Eating Tips

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. Like fine single-malt scotch, it's rare. In fact, it's even rarer than single-malt scotch. You can't find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an eggnog-aholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy.
Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.

5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots of it. Hello?

6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's.
You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again.

8. Same for pies. Apple. Pumpkin. Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or, if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor Day?

9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have some standards.

10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention.

Reread tips; start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner.

Remember this motto to live by:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
I love it, thanks for sharing!

So Sunday it looks that Stephen Moffit has decided to do a Who the next Dr. will be on Dr. WHO. This of course does not surprise me one bit. They were hoping to wait for the Dr. WHo Christmas special to announce the new doctor but with the way Technology is nothing stays secret for long.

Does any Dr. Who fans here have any suggestion who it will be? Currently only a few actors that i could see could fufill that roll and do a decent job. This morning when i was reading and article read some of the comments people made and one of them was the best ever suggestion "Rowan Atkinson". WHich did his own spoof a while back.

Good morning everyone!!!!!! Just when I thought I had a day to stay home and relax..........got a phone call last night. Youngest DS"s coach called and said he got permission from the school board to start football practice early, so today I have to go get DS physical and get him some cleats. I already had an appt to get his physical and then was going to get his cleats after that, but that is in 10 days so that won't work.

So it's off to the dr and then to Dick's sporting goods. I do need to bake a pound cake tonight for a going away party tomm night.

Hopefully I won't have anymore surprises

Hope everyone has a grand day
