Big Party Tonight

Well, it wasn't as dramatic as one might think. At approximately 1:59pm, the sun, or rather a faint strip of yellow light, popped up over the horizon for a couple of minutes. By 2:03 it was all over. The only remnant was the pink dusky colour of the clouds above. I enjoyed the event from the second floor stairwell of the nurses residence where we are staying. Bobcat is on call today he missed the whole thing.

In about an hour, the bonfire will get underway, and then the fireworks are set for 7pm. I am really excited to get bundled up and walk over to the field where the whole town gathers. Bobcat will try and watch from the hospital parking lot.

Today, as I was walking home from the grocery store, where I paid an exhorbitant amount of money for a few staples, an Inuvik Fire Department truck drove by. As they were passing, they got on the loud speaker and said "don't forget about the fireworks tonight. they start at 7 o'clock." I interpreted this event as a special invitation just for me, and consuequently, I died inside.

I'm excited for our trip to Aklavik next week. We are taking the ice road to get there. The doctor told us that the place we're staying can be pretty sketchy and that we will have to bring all of our own food. Despite this, I am still excited because I am in the market for either some beaver or muskrat fur mittens. I've been asking around and apparently I might be able to track some down in Aklavak.

Have fun tonight, wherever you are.

Tabby -

So glad to see that you and Bobcat are living it up in the GWN (that's street jive for Great White North). Was a bit sad when your posts when on hiatus, but I suppose a cat has to sharpen her claws elsewhere before returning all fresh and frisky.

Tomcat and I are doing well, just chilling this weekend and restoring our house to the order it once enjoyed. I read a fab Harlequin today (Jennifer Cruisie's Anyone But You) and indulged in some serious naptime. The nap was necessity after running 11.6K in 80 minutes this morning. (So not a typo - I really am that slow now. Ugh.)

Keep the posts coming. I have you set up in my Google Reader feed. Just love catching your updates as soon as they are published. (You knew I was lame, but have I reached a new level of lameness with that reveal?)

Dear Tamcat,

I love being in your Google Reader Feed. I didn't even know such a thing existed.

Believe it or not, Inuvik is really fun, and we've been pretty busy. We were invited out to the curling club last night and Bobcat curled so well that we have a weekly standing invite. So next Friday night, another party at the club.

I'm glad to hear that you're running. I am disgusting slovenly mess. I still have hope for future fitness. Tomorrow we are going to play squash at the Midnight Sun Recreation Complex.
