my view (quite litterally, actually)

i am home sick today. went out with some friends to celebrate one of them getting a job. my old copywriter and good friend actually. i got a bit of food poisoning while out. drank a few sips of nasty, skunky, beer. of course, i couldn't tell it was skunky at first, having already had two pints of Denison. and of course i asked my friends to taste the suspect beverage as well, to make sure... aren't i a nice friend?

so i am at home and have a rather bleak view to show you. hopefully, soon, we will be moving to a nice artist co-op building by the lake. the view is much improved in the spring and summer, as there are leaves on the trees and little grey and brown birds fly around, busy making nests, then busy feeding their young.

i don't much feel like watching any mind rotting daytime television. so i will continue to look out the window, imagining the life that will swell on the tree soon, as i sit reading MakeReady and surfing at the same time.

phew, sometimes i forget how much i love the good old german beer.

but really, i envy you. for living in this wonderful city.
i've been to toronto two years ago, in january, and it was awesome. cold but awesome. i had a great time, at least until i fell ill because of my addiction to timbits...

chins up ellehcimeo... get well soon!

ah yes. the evil timbit. which was your favourite? the jelly filled ones? the sour cream ones?
my downfall is the chocolate ones!

glad to hear you enjoyed the city! visiting Germany is on the list. i'm fairly certain that my
grandmother who has passed was hiding a secret about our family and germany. i didn't get a chance
to extract the whole story, but there were details that were given to me about her birthplace
and possible non-hungarian roots. i'm fascinated and determined to finish the story.

let me keep my fingers crossed for your research then :)

i can't remember a variety of timbits i didn't like. the coffee's not really a treat but who cares as long as there are tiimbiiiiiiiiits

the coffee is crap. i'll probably be ostersised for my opinion. it's okay, i have connections with the underground.

long live the timbit though!

i wonder if that's what happened to my grandmother's family? maybe they had to go underground because they didn't like some kind of german sausage? (i'm not really this flip about it)

usually the folded blinds like that are signs that cats look at birds outside.

ah. well, our building rents out the apartments with these old blinds.
so we didn't see a need to change them, despite their obvious rattyness.
maybe that will be my new project. there is a neighbour across the street further down than
the photo shows where there is usually either a kitty in the window or a Jack Russell in
the window. it's quite cute.

I hope that you get well very soon. Breaks my hearth that something beautiful lies there wittering away behind those concrete walls. Flowers as pretty as thee need their sunshine.

i feel MUCH better today. it's nice and sunny today, although we did get dumped on with about 12cm
of snow over night. it's beautiful. i'm visiting my family in another city today, and i'm about to
go outside and take some photos.

Good, if there is anything I could do, if there is a way I can be of any meaning. Just call/write.

I like snow.

Fly, baby, fly... fly and suck in the freedom we all so desperately desire but don't have. We'll be watching that portal door (that brings you back to us) - knowing the next time it opens, you'll walk through it and our world will be complete once more.

oh, its my birthday today. any prayers?

i think you should call the weather department in your area, red mist is a classic sign of impending horror-movie-esque pandemonium!

(Narrator Speaks) ... and now, here comes competition. Without turning back, Min Im Um sees the intruder and places his hands subtly, but firmly on the hilt of his kitana, never taking his eyes away from that stealthily moving shadow.

The damsel lays tied against the Coveted Adof D'world canvas painting. Suddenly, the intruder steps into the light... his brown sandals a silent but menacing symbol of dexterity.

" So, it is you." Min Im Um's eyes still fixed.

Both warriors. Ready to do battle. For Love.
