BP arrived safe and sound yesterday. His flight was late. Three whole minutes. Damn planes… Parking at the airport was pretty reasonable. I was there for about 45 minutes and it was just over $6 – not too bad really.
So, on BP’s day 1, we did some shopping at Sunridge Mall, he bought himself a cowboy hat. We had lunch at Earls on 16 Avenue. We took it easy yesterday afternoon, watched most of the home run hitting contest and had BBQ chicken for dinner.
I met up with my ex roommate last evening as well. He’s been banned from the complex by the police – that’s a good thing. He wanted to know if I would let him move back in – ummm, let me think about that. No. So, he’s going to arrange to get his stuff and I think that chapter will close. He was sober and apologized for being an “ass”. Well, you were more than an ass, but I accept.
BP hit bed early – the time difference plus the fact that he had been up since about 2am killed him – he crashed before 11pm. Can’t say that I blame him.
Anyway, I think we are touring Canada Olympic Park today and perhaps the Spark Science Centre as well. I would also like to go to the Calgary Tower. We have to hit Stampede, I know we are going on Saturday with a co-worker from my work but I think we will hit it before then as well. I would like to get an off-roading trip in somewhere, that will depend on my buddy being available to go out – off-roading alone isn’t a good idea. We are planning on going to Edmonton and visiting the West Edmonton mall (Friday, I think) and Sunday we are heading to Montana and the on the way back stopping in Lethbridge to catch the Okotok Dawgs playing the Lethbridge team. I also want to go back to Smitty’s for their breakfast buffet this weekend – AWESOME food. Maybe I will see if SH wants to join us on Saturday.
So, all in all, it will be a busy week.
I was accepted as a Big Brother on Friday. The Little Brother that they wanted to connect me with has already been matched so now the case-worker will find another match. I am sure that will proceed next week or so.
Well, time to start my day – enjoy yours.
