Victoria Day

Well, this year’s Victoria Day was far less chilly and rainy than I had expected.  I hope you all enjoy your extra (Canadian) day!

Canada Day!

I always want to sing the Canada Man song by the Arrogant Worms, but I’ll try to save you from my flat singing voice.  Let’s raise a glass to our great country instead!

Happy Canada Day eh?!

Victoria Day

If I was quizzed on why stat holidays in Canada were named with their names, or why the fell on particular days, I might fail that quiz.  Unless you make it multiple choice.  So for now, just enjoy the May long weekend, a.k.a. Victoria Day, and worry about my lack of heritage knowledge later.

Wrapping Up

Well, the presents are unwrapped, the food has been consumed with gusto, and the aftermath cleaned up.  Christmas has come and gone, but thanks to the multitude of get-togethers, the spirit and joy has lasted longer than just one day.  This is my second Christmas where I am with someone, and I have to say that I have been more excited to watch others open their gifts and spend time together than I have been waiting to open mine.

That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy my gifts, Keri got me some wonderful things, including The Voice of Reason: A VIP Pass to Enlightenment by Chael P. Sonnen.  I devoured that book, it along the same line of “You’re Welcome! With Chael Sonnen” – his podcast on PodcastOne.  Of course, I am biased towards Mr. Sonnen, and one day I will meet him and do some wrestling with him.

My parents went a different route this year, and asked me to use the money for their gifts and donate instead.  They’ve chosen the Delta Community Animal Shelter to receive the donation.  On that note, Daisy – or River as we called her – has been adopted, hopefully to her forever-home.

New Year’s Eve fast approaches, and then things go back to normal: school, BJJ, tournaments, all the usual jazz.  I hope you enjoyed your holidays, and had plenty of merry-making!  I’ll see you in the New Year, alongside the Christmas cards I sent!

Black Friday

I may not be American, but as a Canadian I get to take advantage of a lot of Black Friday deals.  It may be odd to us to have Thanksgiving on a specific date rather than floating around the third weekend of a month, but we reconcile with some great savings.FZL8FXDB_1390287355206

And now I want to make sure that all of you take advantage of Black Friday deals with Triangle Athletics!  For instance, their kimonos are on for a great price: the non-lined Brooklyn is $99, regular $139!  And the rashguard-liner version – the one I constantly wear to the academy, to open mats, to charity rollathons – is on for $119, regular $149!  And for all of my readers who live in the States, the free-shipping deal is still going.

Take advantage of the deals now, before today ends!
