Chitty chit chat
Anybody want to play Scramble with me? Steven? I don't get to play much now that I have like 15 Words with Friends turns awaiting every time I turn on the ipod. Scramble is just like Boggle and if you want to play, prepare to be beaten. People are really good on there but I usually end up in the top three. Another game I was recently turned on to is UNO. The app is really cool and you can play multiplayer games on local networks.
I got my new GPS! After I complained to Amazon that they shouldn't be selling GPS units to Canadians from the dot CA version of Amazon that don't come with a Canadian map, they took the unit back. Plus, they changed all the units offered on their website that don't contain a Canadian map to "Unable to deliver to your shipping address". I felt good that I was involved in helping others avoid such lamity. And bravo to Amazon for taking such quick action. I've only used the thing to go to and from work so far, but it already showed me a faster way to get there! I know GPS is old news, but it's new for me!
So here is a little look around the party after the parade last Sunday. It was kind of cloudy, but Serge and I make an appearance toward the end. I had to leave soon after that because I had picked up a 7am contract (why oh why I was asking myself) for the next morning. Serge came home very late. He woke me up because he kept getting the entry code wrong on the door. Beep beep beep beep beep "shit" beep beep beep beep beep beep "shit" etc.
I'm ready for my walk now. The new command is "sing". He can now "assis" (sit), "donne moi ta patte" (shake) "l'autre patte" (shake the other paw), "couche" (lie down), "dit moi" (tell me) and now "chante" (sing). Singing is much better than tell me which is a bark. He's gonna have fun tomorrow at our big fabulous summer barbecue. Surely he will coax treats out of everyone he's so damn cute.
