Stelmach vs the guy who legally paid for edstelmach.ca

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/calgary/story/2008/01/10/stelmach-domain.html

Dear Ed,

There is a reason companies buy out all possible domain names when they start their business. You're a little too late. And you're being a wee bit heavy-handed. Perhaps a phone call could have attracted a more positive response. 

Sincerely,

People who know better

Death and poker **updated**

Now that I have a month to wait before I get back to work and seeing how laundry only takes an hour of my day I picked up some books on the way home to keep me occupied in the coming month. I am currently reading Marian Keyes "Anybody Out There?" **SPOILER ALERT***and***MORBID ALERT***

 

I spent the first half of the book being confused as to why this protagonist is bandaged up and why her husband isn't talking to her. I totally ignored all the hints as to why he wouldn't reply. Maybe I knew deep down. But turns out she is in pain because she was in a bad car accident and her husband died in the same accident.

*Insert me completely falling apart after reading this.*

The premise of this book is my worst nightmare. I banned Dave from riding in any vehicles. He thinks I'm joking. I'm not. ha.

I don't want to live a fearful life. I want to be able to laugh and run and not be worried about Mr. Death kicking around my husband's or anyone's door. Perhaps I'll sell my soul or something for a few worry-free years. ha.

Or maybe I'll just fold in my poker game with the universe and let go. I can still love people even if they aren't physically here anymore.

**UPDATE** I know that the last sentence here is very glib. Too glib in fact. I was trying to make things light-hearted because I was bawling my eyes out. Remembering people that I love who are gone and how I couldn't bear loosing someone. So please forgive my shamelessness.

Love,

Deb

Lip Ring

So I am excited to announce that both Clement and Nathan won the contest of "what was missing". They both answered quite close to each other, so we decided that we would give them both a prize! Runner-ups were Sheona and Dave's mom Sandi.

So I gave up my lip ring. I said that if it were to get in my way of getting a job, I'd take it out. And it appeared that it would be in the way of a good job. So out it came with 2 pairs of pliers I bought at a hardware store. It was more difficult to take out than I thought. Took me almost an hour to pry it apart.

One downside to the lip ring coming out is that I am biting my lips constantly. Before, when I as nervous I would twirl my ring around but now that its gone, I've resorted to gnawing on my mouth. I do it unconsciously, so it isn't until I'm in pain that I realize what I've done.

AH sweet lip ring. Until I'm retired.....I'll see you then.
