1…. I think I have someone elses foot attached to my right leg. It’s alien. Really … it’s huge! It’s also blue. From the ankle down it’s about three times bigger than it’s normal size. Thank you knee injury!
2…. Speaking of my knee I still appear to have two knee caps, although the new one is bigger than the old one. Time to see the doc again and figure out what’s going on as this can’t be normal.
3…. I’m also really tired lately. Now that is weird ’cause I’m never tired. Maybe it’s because I’ve been dragging around this alien limb for almost two weeks?
4…. In other news, Chris has been busy Jamming with a band every night this week. The band is making a CD and I believe that Chris has been asked to play on it.
5…. The band is a little different. From what I can tell it’s modernized East Indian music. It has a an interesting beat – sounds like a bit of Tom Cochrane, Tragically hip and even Pink Floyd guitar chords mixed with exotic Indian instruments. Very cool.
6…. Chris got involved with this band because one of the musicians is marrying his cousin in August and he asked Chris to play with him after the ceremony. Now they’ve been jamming and it seems to be going further than just playing one gig.
7…. Speaking of the wedding- it’s actually two weddings. August 10th and August 11th.
8…. The first wedding will be a traditional East indian (Hindu) wedding held at the Hare Karishna Temple, and the second wedding the following day will be a catholic ceremony followed by a very “Irish” reception. By very Irish I mean there will be lots of alcohol involved, but the first wedding will be alcohol free.
9…. Chris actually just came home from a practice session and he tells me that after the Hindu ceremony they are going to play George Harrison’s My Sweet Lord and they will be accompanied by the Hare Karishna “House Band”. Then just before they finish My Sweet lord the Hare Karishna’s will do some of their throat chanting followed by the end chords of My sweet lord.
10…. Now doesn’t that sound cool? All those Hare Karishna in their flowing orange gowns singing My Sweet Lord and chanting. I’m going to have to get that on video, for sure. Chris is laughing. He thinks it will be very interesting but he’s picturing his very religious Aunts reaction, and then he’s picturing his ham of a brothers reaction.
11…. The weddings are on a Thursday and Friday, and that weekend we have the Taste of the Danforth here in Toronto. Mmmmm Greek food and entertainment within walking distance of my home.
12…. I’m imagining all of the photo opportunities I’m going to have in a few weeks. Four days of very interesting events that I fully plan to attend. This lump of a leg better be almost healed by then!
13…. Speaking of photos … on our trip to Ottawa last weekend I managed to take almost 200 pictures with my Nokia 6682 cell phone and my digital camera. Only two of the pics were of my Aunts 80th birthday parties, the rest were of the lovely scenery we passed while driving.
