On Demand

What's new in the Andrewverse these days? Good question! Gold star for you.

May is a big big month for me usually. To begin with, on the 25th I will turn the ripe 'ol age of 26. I haven't quite figured out what to do for my birthday. I didn't have a lot of fun last year, so this year I want to do something different. Little bit o' the ol' birthday trivia for you: May 25th, 1977 (my birthday) was the day that Star Wars: A New Hope was released in theatres for the very first time. Could a birthday be any more exciting? I don't think so.

To top it off, I'm going to a wedding, I'm seeing Sara when she visits Ottawa at the end of the month, and there are birthdays for other family members. And my sister is moving today, so I'll be spending time installing curtains and building furniture. My life is a non-stop roller-coaster ride, I tell you. On a sad note, one of my closest friends, Ryan, moved away from Ottawa and was sucked into the fierce gravitational pull of the gweat and tewwible T Dot. He's gone to live with his sweetie and probably to make babies or something. I wish him all the best in his new digs and in his Philosophy Masters program at York -- and even though he lives a few hours away now, I hope I'll still see lots of him.

I recently entered a competition to design a logo for a project sponsored by the Ottawa Kiwanis Club, and it looks like my design is a frontrunner. I'm pretty pleased about that. It's pretty swanky, designed entirely using Adobe Illustrator. If I ever get going on that web site I've been promising, I'll post a copy. There's nothing like winning competitions to give your ego a little shot in the arm. Cross your fingers for me: if this goes well, it might lead to some serious business.

In the meantime, I'm raising a glass to the Ottawa Senators who are continuing their drive to the Cup. Ottawa's sittin' pretty with a one game lead over the Flyers and a big game tonight in Philly. Keep it up, boys! It sure is nice to see Alfie scoring again.

And I also learned something today that might mean a trip into the US might be in my near future: the Canadian dollar is above 70 cents US for the first time in five years. Go Canada go! Read about it here.

That's it for now. It's been a tough week.
