Thursday, November 21st


And now I’ve forgot, so we’ll see what happens!  OK, I’ll be at the Grey Cup and I won’t complain about the cold weather in an outdoor football field.  Why?  It’s winter, suck it up princess!  It’s supposed to be cold at this time of year.  I can wear multiple layers in the winter but only get so naked in the summer.  FACT!


Regina is all a buzz “right now”, since the Riders are at home for the Grey Cup.  Friday has been declared as a “green day”.  Everybody in Saskatchewan is to show their Rider pride and wear green or green and white!  Premier Brad Wall says so!





I swear if I see someone rip up their 50/50 tickets, I’ll snap and seriously consider punching them in the throat.  With the rules stated before each game “Keep Taylor Field green”, direct quote from the announcement prior to every game! Are people trying to be funny?  It got old when I was 13!


I’m glad my tickets don’t include the background music at the game, where you hear “Welcome to the Jungle” by G ‘n R during every starting kickoff!  Didn’t that come out in ’87?  YES!  Live in the now, not the ’80s with terrible music, hair and clothing!



Play Air Supply and make everyone unhappy!  8 players in the CFL were interviewed as to what they listen to last on their iPod before taking the field for game time, 7/8 said this song, which would be awesome for me, but I don’t get to choose.  So be it!



We will be paying more for our suite on the top/3rd floor, yet anyone on the lower/cheaper levels will more than likely tell us no dogs after Brewster dies.  DUMBEST. RULE. EVER!  If that was the rule before, we wouldn’t have chosen that building!  If we didn’t have Brewster we would have already moved!  It’s not like we’re bringing a Great Dane in there, he’s 11.5lbs!  REALLY!?!?


My first band with Dave, Rydell and Rob had a rule or at least Rob and I did?  If someone on stage wasn’t bleeding at the end of a show, we weren’t playing our best.  Didn’t have to be gory, just like break a string, cut your finger on a string or something like that.


Barenaked Ladies are playing here Friday night.  Had I known that before we spent $100 to see lamb of God in Saskatoon, which was money wasted since we didn’t go.  I would have bought tickets for BNL.  In order we’d get to see “Minnow”, “The Waltons” and “Barenaked Ladies”!  My first concert was in ’92.  I was 12, Mitch was 5 and our parents took us to a BNL show at the Center of the Arts!  With “The Waltons” from Regina opening the show!


How did I learn to sing?  Raffi, The Chipmunks, and Sesame Street in my room on my Mickey Mouse record player.    Then “The Lawrence Welk Show” that I’d get up early to watch on PBS, on Saturdays before my parents got up.  Then U2 “The Joshua Tree” and then this song for some reason   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9pIZh1jr-w the low part in the chorus, there’s no way I could hit those low notes now!  Then in the high school choir.  I never really practiced on my own though once I hit high school.  I was always the singer/front man of whatever rock band I was in after high school. Why?  I don’t know.  I could have been somewhere in the background singing and someone else could have been up front instead of me. Being in a group with my brother was great, especially once Todd joined us as our 2nd drummer when Jordan left for school in Ontario.  All of us would bounce off of each other.  Especially Mitch and I.  It was pretty much his band since he wrote the music and he’d tell me “straight up” if something I was doing didn’t fit.

“Don’t judge anyone until you’ve been in their shoes” I learned this the hard way, but I learned it!


“Just because today is a terrible day doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life. You’ve just got to get their” Today has not been a terrible day.


“You’re not perfect so don’t try to be. Just be happy with yourself and everything else will fall into place”


“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”


“Apologize for your mistakes and learn something from them”
