Christmas with the Infidels

An Infidel Christmas - Click to Embiggen!

Last night I headed out to Avenue Pizza to meet up with some of Alberta's Internet Infidels, members of a secular message board community. From left we have Jason, Ross, Keri, Dwayne, Carmelita, Terri, Vince, and my old friend from high school and university, Daryle Tilroe.

It was an entertaining evening - the conversation covered politics, foreign films, vegetarianism, peer to peer filesharing, and, naturally religion (or lack thereof).

Whenever I see Daryle, I can't help but remember our time together on the Leduc Composite High School newspaper. I was the editor, and Daryle did a lot of the layout and press work. Often, we wound up working pretty late in the school's Vis Comm lab, long after school hours. On one of those occasions, Daryle dropped a very heavy inkwell from the offset press onto his big toe - I could only look on in helpless horror as he hopped around on one foot, shrieking obscenities.

Poor Daryle. But, as they say, you can't put a paper to bed without spilling some ink - or even a little blood.

The Earliad Historical Archive: Entry #221B

Earl J. Woods, circa 1985

For the past several months, I've been scanning my photographs into the computer, in chronological order. And in doing so, I have rediscovered an important artifact: the first (and possibly only) known photograph of Earl J. Woods offering the Vulcan salute, sometime during grade 10. I believe I still have the pencil case seen atop my open locker.

Don't get stuck with Q
In the final round of a game of Scrabble

Don't get stuck with Q
On a starship if it's run by rabble

Don't get stuck with Q
When he's proud of his gadgets and wants to babble

Don't get stuck with Q
When it's a winged serpent who wants to dabble
In dining on that human rabble
Who while away the hours with babble
And stalemates at games of Scrabble

New Job!

Just a quick note to say that starting January 4th, I'll be joining the Alberta Liberals as Communications Coordinator! I'm extremely excited about this, and look forward to helping bring about the political change that our province so desperately needs. Woo woo! It's going to be a fascinating experience and an invigorating challenge.
