Or try an unexpected return time if you want to mess with their heads... yes! There are so many practical jokes you can play on unsuspecting kids it boggles the mind.

Good to watch over for an in/out mid-day maybe not hours in the evening. We got lucky with a 16 Y/O 1 door down she has two younger siblings so we are good to go when necessary!

It's next week? Dammit I'll be in Tejas.. I must admit I had no interest til TJ mentioned Ryan Leech, I've watched him at trade shows b4, he's truly awesome & I mean that from an admiration of abilities way not in a 7th grade girl way although I'm sure they'd concur. He came by our booth to look around, super swell guy.

...and gosh darn it doesn't he seem to present himself as an awesome ambassador to his sport. Unlike many an X-game pro... A double edged sword that, adrenaline games athletes as marketing tools doesn't always work out.

i've been looking forward to the bike show all year, but it turns out that i have to go to a training on the saturday, and since i'm not able to keep my one of my jobs, 13 bucks sounds like a lot to me... so i might be SOL

all i want is new bar tape (and maybe some socks)!

Thats who will be making the cookies, my students who aren't employed.

Also, still not even sure if I can make the show. If there is an extra tix I would use it, otherwise the more worthy deserve them.

Oops I missed CM.... I was in collingwood doing a scotiabanker's ski day. It was pretty funny but great conditions. One of my coworkers drove up last night and it took him over 5 hours because the conditions were so bad. Crazy!

Edit: Can jaded bank employees apply for tickets? Put me on the 'standby' list as I'm sure there are more worthy recipients.
