Yay Beck!

Hooray! A surgeon has a greed to separate our heads!

It's always fun when Suz's sis visits. (Left side)

On the weekend, her sister and parents stayed with us. Suz's mom was even in the car with her when the accident happened all around them.

But they weren't really visiting us. Our home was just a stopover. Beck is on her way to Whitehorse. 'What's in Whitehorse' you ask? They've got it all, including Tim Hortons and even Starbucks. I doubt there are hot dog vendors outside the local Canadian Tire, but I'm sure you can purchase a disease-wienie somewhere. It's not the first time she's been so far north. She lived in Iqaluit for a year, doing heartwarming, and heartbreaking stories for CBC radio.

When she's visiting us, though, the mood definitely lightens. Every picture of Suz and her sis look just like this.

One of the best things is how Beck always makes me feel like a teenager again, by introducing me to really great music. The kind of stuff I listened to a decade ago. Radical stuff. Stuff that usually doesn't get airplay. But on this visit, for the first time, she didn't have anything to share with me. However, we did crank Holla Back Girl! and I secretly video-taped Beck dancing wildly in the kitchen.

I think it would be very cool to visit her up in that Yukony area. I always seem to forget that we have a couple of big cities way up near Santa. Real cities, with big buildings, and lots of people. And they're Canadians, just like me. Only colder.

I've always wanted to visit the frozen north. The coolest part is the improbably long day/night cycles.

Dawson City is supposed to really nice too.

I've been invited to stay with friends in the Yukon. Maybe we can go together?

Beck was around? Aww.. I always miss Beck's visits. I need to email that girl. I didn't even know she was gone already.

Sorry V, you blew it! Actually, I think we blew it. We should've called you. I think you wrote your number in our little brown phone book.
Glad to see you are blogging again. It's been a while since your last post.

LO - in the southern parts it's very warm during the day - maybe 23-25 C. At night it gets very cool, sometimes as low as 10 or 12 C, but typically around 15 C.
