Oh great one, I have lied to my mother on her birthday. I told her I had to leave to go to work and I went kiting instead.

So my question is, almighty weather guru, is tomorrow gettin' some too? I think I can put off work one more day if it blows. It is in my contracts in fineprint under definitions of acts of god. Wind is an act of god and therefore the contract is temporarly put on hold. It all makes sense.

partial definition of an ADDICT: those who lie, cheat, or steal; finding ways and means to get and use more....

Yeah, I woke up at 2 thinking it was my gear drying on the deck that was making that banging sound but it turned out to be the drainpipe banging up against the building. Ollie, I expect to see some Lenton Loops today!
