"Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow......"

You know for my money the all time best version of the song "Let it Snow" was by Mister Ed Ames. There is no doubt, that when Ed was singing 'Let it Snow' he was talking about a day like today. NEVER, have I seen as much snow fall as I have in the last two days. And for the lower mainland that is CRAZY! The city is in a panic, and I have no idea if I'll be able to make it to work tomorrow. Oh well, all I can do is go to the bus stop and see if the Bus shows up or not.... this weather is certainly out of my hands.

Speaking of work, many of you have been asking how my first week at work went...well it went. It's a lot to learn, and quite frankly a little overwhelming. I'm a little stressed out about the whole thing still, but I'm hoping as I continue to learn more about the software program that I am supposed to help people with, that the stress will lessen and let me enjoy my evenings a bit more.

I've now lost 30 pounds thanks to weight watchers! That's 30 pounds in 11 weeks for those counting at home. I feel very much lighter on my feet and I look forward to losing at least another 20. I would also like to take this time to thank all of you who have been supportive of my weight loss journey... you've all been a great help and I owe you all very much.

Oh before I end this little update, I need to share that the Gonzaga Bulldogs started off their 2006-07 season by beating #2 ranked North Carolina Tar Heels. That made me VERY happy!

Now since I started off with Ed Ames, why don't I end with Ed Ames......enjoy!

Hey I remember that Johnny Carson Show. I think I watched the original showing oh man was it BW how dating is that!

Ahh . . . that clip is classic! Carson sure knew how to milk a laugh too, huh? Nobody quite has the resonant voice of Ed Ames anymore, do they?

I hope you made it to work OK. I'm sure that you'll start feeling more comfortable with work soon. You scored a "genius" on your IQ test, remember? You'll "get it" in time and it will all work out fine.

Made it to work just fine.... But I was one of only 4 others who did. It was a crazy, busy, and very long day.

Oh by the way the Ed Ames clip...kills me every time too. It is literally laugh out loud funny....

And yes Keogh ain't lying.... I had to take an IQ test when I was sick and I scored 130. Still not enough to help us win the Ladner Quiz night however...

Carson was a master of the comedic pause. It's a lost art that comedians today just can't grasp - NOT saying someting can be funny. The All-universe Jedi of the comedic pause? Jack Benny.

I just read your blog today, and yes it was laugh out loud Carson. Kinda makes you miss him, old Johnny , the babysitters saviour. Oh and well done on being a skinny minny.
