2013 so far so good so what?

What are we to make of this world we are in with all its splendid beauty and misfortune? What grand design lends its eloquence to the heartbeat of imperfection? Gaiea, have our machines disrupted your natural cadence? What truths lie in desk drawers never to be revealed? Wither and thither if my home be not plundered, woe to me be success? What hankerin yonder ponderings sweep along in the wind, the waves, and our minds? Does what you see what you get prevail or can this reality carry more than meets the eye?

The reops have been moving along and i have coordinates on some leads that continue to keep me busy on the housekeeping side of things. Recently got most of my accounts updated and my new insurance stuff so thats good…..lots of fresh snow and projects here at the cabin. Got some spCe cleared for .my gRden and some solar functioning as well as a cold storage hole was excavated to plan for the summer heat….gave some feedback on a new bill and have been xploring my sexual side and psychologixcal and physiological hedonistic urges through the use of internet prono and cigarettes… what extent do my morals values and ethics enter into my decisiinmaking and a quest for hedonism? How does lifestyle and environmental conditions inform or guide social behaviour? Many of these old adages are placed in new light when viewed in non constrained settingz.

Also looking for more steddy work and lotsa good stuff on the go.

the retreat reop

after some op fails on the quality side i tightroped a sketchy retreat into the wilderness where i have now parked my booty. this has just as many risks as anything else goin on in the world but in orde to commit to this lifstyle i have to wacritice some things. that may sound nuts, but due to my financial posiion i ak goin to be forced to wait for longtime commisions, live off the land until my teaching gig kixks in, or run in house ops off my new smart phone whixh i am sing right now to test its capabilities with web usr interface power and finding a steady means to chsrge the things since there is no power water or servixces here. i bought soem water pills to purify my water a d am meltng s ow to rink ane got soem letttuce a s sprout seeds to stsrt in house grow ops to prevent sta avrstion. my jeep is gonna have to be psrked unless i can work a de on insurance and hst .ea s waiting until my stocks climb or another option is garnered thru my hustle to bustle to grt that cash once i know how this phone works and if running remote ops is even N option.

more to come later

Partying Sober vs Drunk – YouTube

This week was a bust at work.  The family day holiday in Canada put everyone off-kilter with the USA office teams and our strategy was comparable to the Sober Drunk analogy outlined the following video.

Partying Sober vs Drunk – YouTube.

In other news, I got my new license, put in my notice on rent at my place in the city and will be officially homeless in less than a week unless I decide to go live in my hut in the bush – priced out auto insurance and should be able to afford it if my fur check and my other checks come in.  Did some stupid shopping and not much else is new except for I might get a smartphone and join the rest of the world so I can access me emails from a distance.  Yarr!

The Week that Was

This week I felt like a fish out of water. After spending 8 hours in the Airport, I finally got a car and went and saw my client and then back to the airport the next day then did a job on wednesday then valentines day thursday in the mountains and housekeeping today.

things i did:

went to the hot springs

climbed a mountain

went looking for golf balls at fairmont banff springs course and found a pinnacle practice ball

bought a copper ingot at a rocks and gem store

found a different rock in the river bed

ran into dk at the bsh and caughtup

met a random girl at the hostel and had dinner

met some tweakers in a gazebo from london

changed oil in the jeep

updated my hotel of record

paid rent

copied my credit report for the bank so they can update my file

bought some sockets for 16 bucks


packed all my shitup to go to the cabin and bailed at the last minute

got paid

To Do:

decide to keep renting or move or wing it as a homeless nomad

get quotes for auto since 2 weeks until my current policy expires

make a revised budget

get mail

change the U-Joint in my front axle

find a girlfriend

have some freakin fun!

Things I saw:

A Mule Deer Buck and Doe in the Mountains (1st Time)

A Coyote in the Mountains (1st time)

A Huge Light Coming from Behind the Mountain Pointed at the Stars

Near Misses:
Almost got T-Boned on Wednesday coming from the Bank to the Car Wash so I punched it and jumped the curb landing 5 feet airborne into the ditch before hitting a culvert and then narrowly squeezing out and into the car wash, whereupon, inspection proved no damage.

That is when I really knew that God was watching over me.

Also, I put 10,000 Kms on the jeep on this last run before changing the oil and it was really starting to irk me since I was putting all these KMs on and just neglecting it and then jumping it over the curb into the ditch into a culvert was really icing on the cake.

Cant wait to make some more cash and get some tires and that axle rod fixed and also saving for a digital camera….

In other News, The Nikes proved themself worthy and the mountain obeyed nicely when I stomped it down. I also scaled a cliff and ran about 20km in the hills across the village and around the block without putting any damage to them.

The weekend is wideopen and just trying to collect my thoughts and gonna take some down time to reflect on the extreme pace of things this week since I estimate travelling over 2000 Miles this week.

Hoping things roll smooth over the wknd and everything transitions nicely into Monday and the rest of the week whatever it is that may be happening.

All-Nighter Here We Come!

Most All-Nighter’s I’ve pulled in the past were more meaningful than tonight’s little escapade inthe YQR — a somewhat pleasant airport — and free internet — and pretty quiet so its not too bad. On the poo-side, I should be in a rental car driving to my destination to visit my client whom I have a meeting with at 6am. The drive would have been 2 hours leaving me 4 hours to either sleep in the car or dilly-dally around at a hotel somewhere……seeing as how I never got that far because of a wrench in the gears, I am officially on standby.

My original plan was to rent a car, but my credit card is still in transit and alas money that is not in the form of a credit card is no good. After texting almost my whole address book, there were no philanthropists that wanted to throw their card up on good will and as a result, I had to email corporate to see if they can get things setup.

Problems: Nooone at corporate is working right now.

Other News:

Oilers took the win to end their 5 game losing streak and I ran into an old high-school flame? on the plane who is now working as an attendant and did a very thorough job at speaking in both English and French which was much nicer the an the recording. Woo Tam!

Today I also went on a date with a girl who actually knew one of my real ex’s and gave me some cred with the gal who had recently had her wisdom tooth out and it was pretty rough since we went to a buffet and i was gorging on all this great indian food and she was soo hungry and it was starting to get pretty ugly until the server told her about this rice pudding. Amen. Otherwise things probably would have went south pretty quick, but we managed to make it through lunch and tea and actually had a pretty good lunch before touring!

After that, I got all packed for my trip and prepared my notes and played some house soccer with the little chinese kid that lives in the same house as me. Even for my age I am still pretty agile and think beckam should probly step down and recognize that there are some damn good players that dont play in the biggs cause they are too busy getting caught in red tape at airports! :0

Other than that, I will have to see how this all plays out — will i visit my client? will i get fired? will I have to try to find a way home? Will corporate front the deposit? Will I get sent home and not visit my client until I get my credit card? Will my banker finally return my call and let me know where my bloody card is?

I finally got some new Nikes!

Today I went and got my mail and my new drivers license and my new credit card were not in there, but hey, there was a phone bill and so I drove back to the house and did a quick budget and heard god say go to the casino and when I went there christmas music was playing and I put 20 bucks on roulette and it hit 35 so I made a 100 bucks then I played 3 cards of poker. First hand I got a pair of 2s and the house took the win with a full house. The next hand I came back with a full boat, kings full of 4s and then a straight on my next hand to put me up $130.

ChaChing! Straight to the Nike Outlet and got these rad new sneakers for 68 bucks! Having a super chill Chinese New Years Eve tonight and getting ready for my trip tomorrow.

My new sneakers work great and I did a nice run around the block and have been doing some dance moves to MUCH and Taylor Swift and pretty fun night!
