And just what do you have to say for yourself, young man?

Here's a short list of the events of the last week, as experienced and witnessed by yours truly:

1) Went camping with The Lovely Wife and boys (and friends with their two kids), which resulted in one kid slip-sliding around the enormous tent ("The Taj") and winding up a full five feet from his sleeping pad. And not caring one lick about it. The bacon we had for breakfast, which some say is the only reason to go camping in the first place, was amazing. Two more camping trips planned in the next month.

2) Took the boys on their first canoe trip (Albeit a short one. 15 minutes counts as a trip, right?) Unlike my first canoe trip, nobody "accidentally" tipped the canoe, throwing a 10 year-old into the lake, resulting in one freaked out 10 year-old and a lost fishing rod, except that I (oops, I mean "that 10 year-old") actually didn't lose the rod at all, just had it clenched in a frozen fist. Whoever said "time heals all wounds"?

3) CBC allegedly bullied the creator of the Hockey Night in Canada theme song, resulting in a big ol' "go to hell, we'll sell it to your competitor" from said creator. In retrospect, I'm not sure if I would object more to my taxpayer dollars going to the retention of a hockey jingle, or to clearly inept bargaining. Either way, nice going, Canada.

4) Took another one of my monthly trips up to Cape Breton, this time devoid of snow, but not devoid of construction-related traffic. I did get to see the Giant Fiddle lit up, and yet another cruise ship docking while I enjoyed my complimentary hotel breakfast. Huh. Not blogworthy. Scratch that.

5) Watched a certain contortionist / gymnast do her thing on a regional breakfast television show, only to return to this Seaside town to see her image plastered on billboards and bus-advertisements. Methinks this might be a good time to practice my portraiture if she's going to need a portfolio in the very near future.

I'm pretty sure I have pictures to back up most of these allegations. Stay tuned...

Well, I guess so, the bacon was "amazing". You are in Canada, after all. Doesn't that just go hand in hand?
