I was up late last night, and woke up early this morning. Couldn’t sleep. I got into a pissing contest with a guy I know in an internet forum and I am embarrassed to say how much it’s been on my mind. I like to think I’m above this sort of thing, but clearly I have a ways to go before I become truly enlightened.
I decided that I was becoming badly out of balance… again. So after canceling plans for my enlightenment party, I headed down to Atlantis for a bit of ‘me’ time. I did some reading and wrote until my tummy grumbled. Went home, bbq’d a burger and headed for the office.
It was nice to get back in the edit suite. I finished two sections of the Urban Future teaser then Kaitlyn came in. Kaitlyn is the ‘face’ of InJustice and she’s been acting in two Shakespeare plays all summer in Saskatoon. After a big bear hug we caught up and then began working on her demo reel. She’s moving to Toronto in a week and we want to arm her with everything she’ll need to be successful in ‘Hog Town’ (what the rest of the universe calls Toronto).
At 5pm I left to pick up Jazzy from my mom’s and we headed to the Lawson Aquatic Centre to go swimming. Jazzy reached level 3 in her swim classes and she was anxious to show off her new moves. Truth be told, I was also looking forward to showing off some of my moves, as I swam competitively for a number of years as a kid. The pool, it seemed, was another place for us to bond.
A half hour later we found ourselves sitting on Cris’s couch because the Lawson was closed for maintenance. We watched ‘Big Brother’ and played backgammon. Jazzy gammoned me, Cris gammoned me and Jazzy. Not my night.
After that I went home and watched a movie… while waiting for enlightenment to strike.
