woohoo! the winner!

woohoo! the winner!

I guess it is time to make the standard, boy! is it ever hot! commentโ€ฆ Well it is. Iโ€™m fulltime onto shorts now. Being a pasty white uber geek in the summer usually sucks. I mean there is nice and warm then there is unbearably hot. It seems the GTA gets more unbearable than nice. Gah! Which all the more reason I have high respect for insane cyclists such as my sister who *compete* in weather like this! 40 degrees with the humidex? Umโ€ฆ A.C. Now! We watched my sibling in a bike race in Milton on Sunday. It was disgusting hot.. now imagine cycling up monstrous hills and โ€˜technicallyโ€™ complicated sections in a race. It was all I could muster just to sit in the shade. She must have some gene I donโ€™t because apparently she is very comfortable in sweltering weatherโ€ฆ She won her race! Congrats! It was fun to watch. Even if Iโ€™m more worried than enjoying most of the time. We got yummy Thai the night before from the Pepper Pot. Saturday night we watched The Golden Compass. I enjoyed the majority of this film. The visuals were good. The led character was good Lyra (not Kidman. gawd she was awful!) but the story seemed a bit jumbled to me. The film makers seemed more intent on making it marketable than enjoyable. The ending foreshadowing to a sequel was incredibly over the top. โญโญโญยฝ

Monday has been a very long day at work. It seems Iโ€™m just getting to do *my* work at 5PM. SIGH. Go Holland! Looking like a big win in the Euro Cup! I love seeing the cry baby-roll around on the ground Italians get a well deserved whooping.
