Last night i was invited to a surpise birthday party for my pal Brad. As i approached the door to Brad's house i noticed my Aunty Pearl in the window... strange... i didn't know Brad and my Aunt were that close Hmmmmmm.

I still didn't catch on until i walked in and saw the house was full of my Cousins, Uncles, Aunts and friends. Thats right... a bachelor party of the most conservative style =D

Here is a picture of Myself (with beard), Jackie, Brad and Paul.

Point form

I just finished a suprisingly long blog entry and before publishing it i thought i would be nice to add a picture, and in doing so i erased the whole thing.

It is late and i am lazy so i will re-write it in point form only.

- i miss my friends i can't see now that i am working a lot

- in theory i should be wed to Carol (seen above) Dec 10th

- i am happy to see Mark Trew is back wife in tow

- i miss being in a worship band and being at church on a regular basis as well

If I ever live in Brasil I am going to buy a VW Sp2. Although it looks like this Dash has been modified.

Goodnews and Badnews

The good news is my back is finally 99% better.

The bad news the papers i filled out and sent to brasil expire tomorrow, unused, due to forces beyond my control (they are only good for 3 months and that one stinking form kept thier government from starting the process until it was too late) so i have to start them all over again from square 1.

At first I was mad about the whole situation, BUT soon after i realised that all this amounts to nothing but a few extra weeks.

Ps. I think I looked at little like Don Knotts when Carol told me the papers where no good any more. :-P

One of the papers i finished to get married in Brasil was not good enough for thier Notary... soooooooooo i guess i will have to fly to Ottawa to go to the Brasilian Consulate there OR just fly to Brasil again and do it in person. OHhhh well how could i say "no" to that face :P

*sigh* and i hurt my back at work last week and it is still bothering me. I hope it gets better becuase i have only been working 1 year and that means i have many, many years to go.

Well nothing really new is happening in my life. I am working a lot and trying to save $, the paper work to get married in Brasil is done (at least my part) and sent. Now we wait.

Interesting Fact: TYLER LEWIS... Canadian Idol (top 9 so far) was a guitar student of mine back in the day, i was in a "classic rock" cover band with his older brother Travis Lewis (whom is a pretty talented guy himself) for about 3-4 years.

Another Interesting Fact: I work with Theresa Sokyrka's Mom at St. Pauls hospital sometimes... altough rarely.

Well I not to any ones surprise i got engaged to Carol on my last trip. We don't know when we will get married probably because we don't know yet who and what needs to be involved to make it legal in both Canada and Brasil, but i am hoping it will be before Christmas!

Here is a very small picture (sorry ladies I being a man do not own a picture of the ring).
