It’s been a fun week.
I saw an amazing Frankenstein play with Emily. It was probably the best play I’ve seen in a few years, and it didn’t hurt that it was a musical. The costumes were out of this world, the whole cast had amazing voices, and many of the songs were hilarious.
Dan organized a big ski trip to Big White. 30 people, mostly from work went. It was a great trip. There wasn’t any fresh powder, so the runs were a bit hard when you fell, but other then that it was great. We went with a tour company, Destination Snow, so the bus ride there, our accommodation, and lift tickets were all taken care of.
I’ve been following the U.S. Presidential Primaries, and rooting for Barack Obama. The man is just inspiring. I remember seeing the speech he gave when he entered the race last year, and almost crying I was so moved. I really hope he wins.
I lost a few grand as the stock market tumbled.
I had more dental surgery this morning – gum grafting this time. Yeah fun. I’m a bit swollen, but I haven’t had need for any pain killers yet.
I didn’t know you played the market. I’ll be hoping for an “anti-crash” for your sake.
Just mutual funds right now – some through a work RRSP plan and some on my own. I’m not brave enough to invest in stocks.
Do you have any links for a good Obama speech/interview on YouTube?
I’ve seen one speech that everyone thought was amazing (South Carolina victory speech), but I didn’t see what was great about it. He didn’t really say anything other than typical politician talk.
