Shark Attack

The Greatest Band ever...for the minute and a half they lasted

It's usually a good thing when you have a party and people leave alot of booze behind. Well, not for me...especially if I happen to find a yellow jumpsuit at the thrift store.

Passing Out

It seems everytime I get really intoxicated, I pass out. The first photo is from last night. We had a party. If you zoom in, you will notice that my face is covered with chocolate. I faintly remember eating it; not smearing it on my face, and subsequently passing out from the sugar crash.
I used the magic bullet for the party and it stole the show. I made pina coladas, a roasted red pepper dip and other treats in the blending device. My sister told me to make a 'spread with the bullet, and create another 'spread' on the table with things that can be dipped and the goal was for someone to say, "Nice spread Mark." I achieved that goal. Its a good thing my goals have some sort of validity to them and that I aim them so high.
The other photo was from a couple of months ago. I have another photo somewhere of me passed out on all the shoes in the apartment, but I can't find it. Its a good thing Ben has the sense to take my picture when im in my best condition.
We recieved a noise complaint last night in regards to our party. Bens blog sums it up nicely, and I suggest you read it.

I just booked a trip to go to Japan for my holidays. Im flying into Osaka, and meeting up with my sister for a few days. Ill take a bus down to Sasebo and visit Hitoshi Murakami. Im then going to ride around on a train and get lost in a country where i don't know the culture or the language for three weeks. It's going to be great. The weird thing is, half of Yellowknife consists of Japanese tourists travelling here to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights and I have never associated with any of them. Maybe i should, and then ask them for insider tips.

A drive was taken outside of City limits to watch the Northern Lights. Was s'nice! It looked like the sky was bleeding green blood. Like Predator's, but not as bright. More like Vulcan blood. did come from the sky...maybe the northern lights are just patches of vulcan blood floating in space. Thats the dumbest thing I've ever said.

An inside glimpse of the Gold Range

There isn't one depressing thing about this photo.

I have no brain

Yess! Nothing like a government worker doing a solid weekend of effective binge drinking. The North will never be the same and neither will my brain. Just the regular shit happened this weekend, you know; drank too much, ate chinese food in the middle of the night; got molested by a crazy woman at the know, just the regular stuff.
If anybody wants to see a funny show, rent or buy the dvds for 'Thats My Bush'. It will make you laugh. Well, it made me laugh.
Its -40 outside. This is what everybody looks for when they move here. The locals like to use phrases like, "You haven't experienced Yellowknife until you experienced -40 weather." Yeah, well it is an experience. So is getting raped by a wolf. They are all experiences. Not neccessarily good, but an experience to remember. (The weather that is- I forgotten all about that time when that wolf raped me)
The occupants of my apartment (me and ben) are having a party next week and its going to be awesome. An ecclectic myriad of individuals will be in attendance, from the entire division at work, to random people around town. We have foosball, darts and beer pong to keep ourselves occupied and to assist in our drinkig rituals.
Today is January 14th....this is the exact 6 month anniversary of my move to Yellowknife. Congratulations Mark. Keep up the good work. Remember TEAM- Together Everyone Achieves More. Yess. You hang in there. Keep on trucking.

It was -35 today with a windchill in the mid minus forties. It was the coldest day I've experienced in my life. Tommorrow may take that claim.
Doing laundry today, I noticed a little microcosm of Yellowknife culture bottled into a Ford F-150. Leaving the laundromat, a man is picking up his wife and three kids (from the laundromat) and hes just blaring the theme song for Degeneration X. A wrestling theme song. A ten year old wrestling theme song. And this individual is acting like this is just...regular music. I wanted to take a video of it, but I thought that would be rude, so I just bought some beer and decided to write about it instead.
I learned how to 2-step and Im awesome at it. When I go to the 'Range' I fit right in with all the native-cowboys...which seems like a contradiction in my head......and my head is going to explode in 5...4...3....premature head explosion!~
