cook you something that you'll really love

It's a working weekend, the polar opposite of last weekend when family descended from across the great gap and down the trail.  So instead of eating and talking and eating and IKEAing and eating, I'll be raking in the shekels.  Two shifts at National Music Centre and putting the final push on a project for East Village will keep me out of trouble and at a safe distance from the fridge.

The OFKAR will also be working this weekend.  Papers and midterms are compressed during summer session, so trips to the beach will be on hold.  We can commiserate together.

Getting to work on Sunday will be interesting, as I have to be downtown after the Calgary Marathon has started.  Scads of roads will be closed, so I am not entirely sure how to get there from here.  Perhaps a personalized gyrocopter.  Better yet, a jetpack.

Have you ever been stranded by a marathon or a parade?  Tell me about it.

One of my midterms was postponed in first year because we weren't allowed into the building for security reasons as it was part of the Olympic torch relay route.

See, if you had kept a little fake Olympic torch in your backpack like I raised you to, you would have been able to write that midterm, OFKAR.

Good luck with finding your way downtown Sunday. We got caught up in something similar last weekend. I suppose, though, you can find a map or listing of road closings...

I did indeed locate a list of road closures, Vicomtesse, which is dauntingly lengthy.
I hope you were kept entertained during your parade detainment last weekend.

We were promised jetpacks, dammit!

I hope you're able to find a route that isn't too busy. Transit, perhaps?
