Crybabies and A Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

Good Evening internet readers. To those of you in Canada, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving; and to everyone else, I just hope you’ve had a great normal day 🙂

It’s been a good weekend. I got to celebrate love at my friend Jessie’s wedding, and then had amazing turkey dinners at both my family, and Russ’s family’s house. I gotta say it…I love gorging my face on Thanksgiving.

As I’m writing this, I’m realizing there isn’t really any point to this post; I just wanted to come on here and check in. I read this article on Vice a couple days ago, and the second part of it really bugged me, so I guess that’s something that I could talk about.


I guess…

The article talks about people’s inappropriate reactions to seemingly harmless events, or in the case of “Cry-Baby #2”, things. You see, a school in New York decided to ban sports equipment like footballs, baseballs etc due to an increase in injuries on the playground.

Kids can’t even do a cartwheel without coach supervision. This may just be me, but I think it’s a little much.

Admittedly, I don’t have children, so I’m no authority on what is best for kids; I do however know that I have managed to live for twenty three years perfectly fine, and I was DEFINITELY allowed to play with footballs and do cartwheels freely.

I guess it’s just another sign that things are changing. Copious amounts of arbitrary technology (Iphone 5s I’m looking at you), a government shutdown and children who will end up being afraid to trip and fall (aka another word for cats).

I guess thats all I’ve really got to say on the matter for now. I know its not the most well formed argument, but I keep slipping in and out of a turkey coma, and its the best I can muster up ;). I bid thee all a great end to your Monday night.



Cloudy Sundays at the Beach

So, today was beach attempt #2. Again, I was up earlier than normal for someone who is on a day off, eagerly awaiting my friends Gina and Ashley who were coming to pick me up. Unlike last time, it actually happened. 

Out to Wabuman we went….only to be met with VERY cloudy skies (like to the point where it looked like it would rain) and cold wind. We albertan girls are tough though, so we still set up camp for about two hours; then we got tired of getting sprinkled on…so we headed to nearby Alberta Beach (a small lake town right near where I grew up) for lunch. 

All in all, probably not the most successful trip to the beach. I’m beginning to believe someone out there really doesn’t want me to tan this summer 😉 ….However, it was still a great time. I hadn’t seen Gina in a couple months, so we chatted about all sorts of things; some vice documentaries I watched, concerts we want to see, and just generally life stuff.

I hope your Sundays are great, and stay tuned for tomorrow….I think I may finally do a reprise that I’ve been planning on one of my earlier blogs.
