I just talked to my friend P. He's really cool. Here's a link to his Journal. He's an avid trail rider and he can do things on a bike that scare the crap atta me. Long ago we stayed up all night at R.'s place playing a Starwars game. I actually fell asleep, but when I woke up in the morning, he was still playing. That was a riot!

I'd better go to bed now. Physiotherapy tomorrow morning.


It's Thursday night and I just rode my bike up to SFU. SFU isn't very far from my apartment, but it's up at the top of a big mountain, so it's one hell of a hill climb on a bike. When I got to the top I was all sweaty, then when I rode back down I was freezing cold because I was going super fast. It started to rain on the way back, so I got soaked as well.

I know it sounds like it's not much fun, but I really like it. It's keeping me in good health and I prefer biking outside over working out in the gym.

I helped my best friend L. finish her house painting today. All the tricky little areas were finished (she got up at 6:00am this morning and did the little areas) so it didn't take us long to do the big areas this time.

I should get caught up on some things tonight. I have tons of photos that need to be retouched in photoshop still. This whole business of photography seems to equate to 10% shooting to 90% working on the processing part. I've kinda let the processing part pile up a little lately.

Have a good night.

Today I helped my best friend L. paint her house. I got paint all over me, but it was fun. There's even paint in my hair.

I'm going back tomorrow to paint some more. We still have to put the second coat on. I took some pictures while I was there. I propped the camera up on a table while I was painting and just used the remote controller to snap some random shots.

Luckily the weather wasn't too hot today, it was perfect for painting. I should be in bed now, I've got to try to go to the gym tomorrow morning before I get back to the painting.


"Where have I been?!" You might be thinking.

I've been a very busy boy lately. I can barely keep up with my regular activities. I've been mostly working on photography projects and now I'm repairing another computer for my good friend R. (The one with the Blues band).

I've also been trying to get more exercise, which I have been managing to do lately. I've been doing a lot of bike riding and a little working out as well. I prefer the bike riding, I really dislike the gym.

R. was very happy with his graduation photos and so was his family. That made me very happy. Making people happy is the best feeling in the world, so I love it. If I make someone happy, I feel great.

My newphew R.'s birthday is on the 12th of June, so some friends and I got together and bought some really nice binoculars for him. When we bought the binoculars, we were also given a great big black and yellow striped golf umbrella. It looks like a big hornet, or something a hornet would use. Since it's a golf umbrella, we came up with a name for it and presented my nephew with the "The Tiger Woods 'Hornet'". You had to be there.

I made a funny video the other day of my cat Sarah stealing a cookie. I added music and some special effects and it came out really funny. It's a really big file size, but I'm going to try to find a way to post it here so you all can download it. I'll work on it. The cookie video was my first attempt with this new video editing software I have. I'll do some more soon and post links to them, or make them available on CD. It sould be fun.

Ok, I'm off to bed. More to come.
