Cantor you can stop the banter.

Save that, for another thread.

He'll stop the banter when the Gwynnies tell him too and not a minute before. You realize that statements like this just encourage me right?

I hear they have strippers

In a deep and dark December
I am alone
Gazing from my window

Gazing out my window I can see the snow below,
and it flows into my soul from the eggshell of my mind.
I found a way I could navigate my boat through these troubled waters,
to the shores of Shangri-La.

Eggshells, Eggshells, help me separate my yolks from my whites.

Standing in the phone booth just waiting for the call,
but I don't know who it is or where they are.
Biding my time, in the heart of the purple city,
these bright lights shining in my eyes.

Eggshells, Eggshells, help me separate my yolks from my whites.

So there I was, all alone. Nowhere left to go but down. Only thing on my face was a frown.

Meh, I'm content with the year. Some arguably bad, more good. To be honest, the only real problem in my life is me and my irrational inability to enjoy it.

• Got laid off from a job I loved, paid well, and allowed for having half the year off doing fly in / fly out diamond mine security on a two week rotation.

• Easily got rehired with provincial corrections. Not enjoyable but pays well if I take the overtime. It'll do in the short term.

• Got a good start on landscaping my vacation / future retirement property in Quebec. Isolated, in the woods, bordering a creek connected to lakes in both directions, surrounded by backwoods logging trails and a national reserve. Could be worseTongue

• Bought house in Gatineau. Needs some work, but the neighborhood is amazing. My 5 year old starts school next year, and the place he'll go for the next six years is literally right across the street. He's already made a few neighborhood BFFs that will be starting at the same time.

• Our new next door neighbor, the father of one of the above mentioned kids, is a fellow gun nut Clap

• The Brazilian Jiujitsu school I found in Ottawa is a Renzo Gracie affiliate, which was an unexpected gem of a find.

• It was announced that we've got a probable deployment on the horizon. I suppose that could be viewed either way. Hate to leave my kids, but I need my break from civilian life. With any luck it will be a combat deployment and not a training mission. But hey, beggars can't be choosers. If we end up spending a few months somewhere hanging out with some random foreign army, I'll still get my "vacation".

Other than the deaths of numerous musicians who were personal favorites of mine, and you know the pending downfall of Western democracy and the possibility of WWIII it was actually a really good year! After some real ups and downs we found some school situations for both of our young boys that they both really enjoy and which are actually affordable (somewhat). Our property value went up. My wife landed a teaching job she really loves, with a significant pay increase, and I'm starting to get some recognition at my job too - might actually be able to "go career" here if I want to. Plus MA passed recreational marijuana, so you know, 2017 aims to be high times as well.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I've had worse, in terms of shitty events that directly affect me. Not too much happened there.
