have no fear

have no fear… is still here… i have just been somewhat preoccupied with other mundane activities that tend to fill up my leisure time just about as much as writing in this blog does… and to-boot i have had nothing interesting to write about.. until a few moments ago.. when i was scanning my rss reader.. and saw mark’s latest entry on his blog.. and well.. all i have to say is… this is for you man!!! and your link is now back on my site!!! ohh yeah.. and for crystal.. who was actually the first to complain back on the 25th… but who i had moderated out, since i deemed her comment to be off topic.. anyways.. crystal’s comment and mark’s link…is back.. and so am i… more to come later.. like an intense play-by-play of me doing my laundry.. or even my dishes… da da daummmm

licence to panic

Well, I did it… I finally stopped stalling and got me a BC driver’s licence.. And as a result, I have never been so nervous in my life… It feels like I have some how given up eight years of meticulous efforts of avoiding being fined for performing, even a single, traffic infraction or for needing to make an at-fault claim. I have worked hard and earned my status back in Ontario, and well, now that I have a BC licence, I fear my efforts will somehow become devalued.

It’s not that I am paranoid about any aspect of my actual licence or class… as I am confident that the provinces communicate these things somehow.. but rather the insurance ‘status’ that I may lose. Back in Ontario.. the insurance companies some how worked together and had a way of finding out everything about you.. but here in BC.. I don’t know if ICBC ‘talks’ to the other companies kuz they don’t need to here… since ICBC is the only auto insurance provider in this province…

Now, ICBC does say they will accept original letters from past insurance companies ensuring my claim-free status and perfect driving record.. but, this process allows for a margin of error beyond with what I am comfortable with… grrr.. can’t everything just be hooked up together!! eff! Can’t I simply have a record that I can not run from?!!? 😛

Yes, there are many more complications, such as me owning/insuring a car that lives in another province, and if I can continue to do this while holding a BC licence… etc.. but I guess Paula (the best insurance agent in the world) will answer these questions for me soon enough…

sounds suspiciously like vaporware

well folks.. i have a short-term goal to start doing some creative writing again, since i have suddenly developed a peculiar confidence that it will, somehow, be beneficial to me to massively release all these thoughts going on in my head into some cryptic form that, i assume, most will not actually be able to coherently decipher… (however, if you actually made it through that drag-on, and possibly fragmented, sentence… there is still hope) so don’t worry… be rest-assured, that i will be able to express my thoughts in a constructive means that, depending on your own interpretation, will be able to benefit you and me… as well as, save the planet, keep the conservatives out of power, and well, mend all the other ailments that plague us human beings.

jubilance courtesy of the week’s end

so this weekend was pretty damn good.. and overall i had a lot of fun.. so without delay.. here is a brief summary of this past weekend’s events…

friday.. dre, jason and aldwin came over for some drinks and then we headed out to the honey lounge (on cameron‘s suggestion, thanks cammy – good pick) and it was all good times… and good music.. and good company… there was in fact one person who highlighted the evening, and she was kool, cute and quite interesting to converse with.. too bad existing commitments all too commonly prevail…

saturday.. i then awoke.. with half my clothing still on.. (which is typical of a good nite) and with a burning urge to go wander around various commercial establishments… but then, for whatever reason, i was unable to determine that, ever needed, ‘trinket’ which typically helps to validate and justify a visit to a mall.. so i never went.. until.. dre messaged me with a similar desire to go shopping.. which i quickly agreed to… so then dre picked me up.. and we headed to the ‘burbs (coquitlam)… to purchase some miscellaneous products….

then later that evening.. we played some hold’em with a couple dudes (which dre/dre’s buddy knew), and linda… and i ended up losing my bankroll.. but whatever… it’s all about the enjoyment that derives from partaking in illegal activities (damn, persistent teenage angst)…

then today.. i slept in.. and once i awoke around 12:30, i immediately gravitated towards the telephone.. which i talked on for many hours.. it started with a brief talk with my pops… who had been worried about me, since i had not actually synchronously communicated with him (despite his many voicemails) since he had left bc a few weeks ago.. but then, most of my early afternoon morphed into being spent talking to allison.. who, it seemed i hadn’t talked to in forever..

once that enjoyable conversation came to an end… i cracked the red wine.. and started up the, now common, sunday nite msn conversations routine… (kuz everyone always seems to be online on sunday…) i first hit up the east coast.. where online volume peaks typically at 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM my time (8:00 PM – 11:00 PM EST)… then near 7:45 PM i received an invite out to dinner from mitch… so we went out for some grub.. chilled for a bit.. and then…. here i am… at the end of my weekend.. with a smile on.. as well as which has seemed to love me unconditionally, as have i her.. since my hard drive crashed…. many cheers to you all and happy (now gone) weekend!

laconic update

well.. thus far in 2006, the hard drive in my 15″ powerbook died.. i’ve read a little, did some tv research… and ummm tomorrow is back to work…
