I wandered onto Andrew Desmond's live journal for some reason tonight. I guess he's surfaced a bit more in my mind this week owing to it being his birthday, or maybe it was just hanging out with highschool friends or people I've run into on facebook. It somehow seems less angry now than it did when I read it last year - I guess it just made me think how he never had much luck, every time things started to go well, some crazy thing would sideswipe him. I wonder if he ever worried just because things were going good, the pattern was that strong. I still regret that I didn't drop by his work on that Saturday, like I meant to, since clearly Tuesday was too late. Then again, maybe this would be that much more horrifying if it had happened after re-establishing contact with him - knowing him as I did - he'd probably have said something infuriating and iratating and left me feeling grouchy at him. Its all beyond changing - so I scatch my head and wonder at the cruelty of fate. Hope there is still cake and ice cream on the other side.

The FRT end of year party was tonight. We enjoyed a snazzy dinner at a restaurant and some awards. It was kind of nostalgic - not a bad bunch of people really even though living out of town has limited my social interaction with them in general. I'm on shift now, hoping for a quiet night.

Ren and family visited the other day, leaving a small pair of shoes behind should they be wondering where they go to. I made some pretty good spagetti sause, even for me. Unfortunately I'm starting to feel sleepy and should catch some zzzz's, since I can't remember the rest of the list of things I wanted to say.

Yeah for board games... I've been becoming an addict. Here we are playing Carcasonne - I'm blue... I don't think I did that well.

Wow! I just realized how long it has been since I've written. I suppose my life hasn't exactly produced any blog worthy moments. We found Lowville Park and went for a short walk after getting lost trying to find it. Its the same and different than I remember it. The general store which used to sell stuff like jewelry, quilts and candles is now a fancy-smancy bistro (that charges $2.25 for 3/4 of a small cup of not particularly distinguished coffee) and the 3rd bridge is missing. We didn't think to bring toboggens - but the hill was looking pretty cool. I'd forgotten that there was an old school house and a bunch of sport fields there. Anywho - nice to get a bit of a bop out of the city. It turns out that after we left my parents independently decided to go for a drive and the fact that we didn't see each other is a small miracle.

Anywho... its time to play with my calculator and do my taxes. I think I'm one of the few folks who still does it by hand, but it really isn't that complicated at this point in my life....

So farewell...
