First Night Out

Dave and I headed out for a fancy meal (and Warren Buffet worship session) courtesy of our financial planner. We need to bear through a information session about some investments that we kinda understand, but then they feed us! So we left Jasper in Priya's capable hands and hit the town. Although, by nine I was exhausted.

Christmas 2010

  • 14 days
  • 25 hrs flying
  • 2200 km (1400 Mi) driving with Jasper who'd never seen a car seat before.

I'd like to spend a few days recovering.  But that's not going to happen.

An Ode to the Dear Leader

You may or may not know that I have a special place in my heart for North Korea. Some may even say I have a small obsession. When Dave and I were planning on moving to South Korea (but ended up in Hong Kong...another story...another time) I totally read up more on the North than the South. My obsession flourished after I saw a video of the Mass Games (see below). The insanity, and awesomeness of that video made me realize I MUST visit and go to the Mass Games in N.K. 

I continued reading and found out that I find country-wide personality cults and propaganda are really fascinating. It is hard to put a finger on what I find so interesting, I guess I just can't imagine what it would be like to live/be there. Like the level of crazy...is phenomenal. The lack of technology, especially because they are living right above the most online country in the world. Honestly, it is top of my list of places I'd love to visit. Dave is, unfortunately, under the impression that I'll say something stupid and get thrown in a gulag. And it probably isn't the greatest time to visit with them blowing up SK war ships and shooting at islands.

But when Dave comes to his senses and realizes that I would be on my best behaviour I will go watch the traffic ladies do their dance. And take the subway that only has two stops and actors for commuters. And gaze upon the "Hotel of Doom", otherwise known as the Ryugyong Hotel. 

What it comes down to it is that I love me some Dear Leader. Until I get there, I'll have to rely on the internet to give me my North Korea fix. And the internet doesn't disappoint. Please see: The Dear Leader looking at things. Soooo Awesome.

Singapore Unicycle Hockey Tournament 2010

We went to Singapore on the weekend for some unicycle hockey.  Saturday we played for about 5hrs in the hot sun.  It was great.  Then on Sunday we went for a group ride.  Debbi & Jasper came along and went shopping while I was playing/riding.
