Last night's sleep was interrupted. Went to bed early, woke up at 1:00 am. Got 3 hours of sleep. Back to bed at 4:00, then up again at 7:00, 8:00, 10:00, 10:30. FINE! I'll get up.

Feel slightly ill today and having trouble motivating to do anything.

Not much sleep at all last night, so I have been shedding some very productive thoughts today for simpler, and more attainable items on the old to-do list.
I am putting thought toward airbrushing. Some very excellent people gave me a modeler's airbrush kit, but I really don't know what to do with it. I mean, I know how the airbrush works, but...

Nice, I hurt so much for you. This is such a terrible action.

Stop hating, stop destroying, stop tearing other people down. The only reason to do this is to make yourself feel better about...yourself.
Instead, try loving, understanding, building. Improve yourself. Challenge yourself. Be better. Do not let others tell you that you have to hate others. Do not stereotype groups, judge them...

chef:

I'm in Houston, visiting my parents. Karen's not. :( So who's in the Houston area?

Tuesday: Charlottetown, PEI. Oh gods, why do you hate us so much?

Morning, we get up and have a leisurely breakfast in our temp cabin. Karen is heading out with K&J for a geo-caching adventure later. Since they cannot tell how long it is, and my feet are *still* hurting, I decide to stay in. We just finish up eating and are having a cup...

Monday: Day at sea, and The Ticking, oh gods the Ticking!

Okay, we are operating on almost no sleep. We go to the front desk and talk to them about the ticking. They offer earplugs, we tell them that this is not going to work. One of the front desk people come down to see the issue. “Oh!” she says upon hearing how loud it...

Here's the next installment of our adventure.

Sunday: Quebec City and the Arrhythmic Telltale Heart. We eat breakfast in our cabin. K&J have an excursion planned, so they head off. We decide to check out Quebec’s Old Town, as we had heard so much about it. Hint: When they say it has native art shops they really mean small locally owned shops that...
