My friend Stone is in town again.  He’s staying with us.  Damn those cheap airfares!

Friday night we gathered up the usual posse and went to TCLion’s pub downtown.  The food there has gotten worse, though the beer is as good as ever.  Between five of us, we drank 3 pitchers plus one extra beer.  Did I mention the pitchers were 4 LITERS EACH?  That’s about 2.5 liters of beer per person.  Woah.  Susie had diet coke, and deserves a medal for putting up with us.

Today, I conned, I mean, convinced, Stone to help me buy and put up some Christmas lights outside the house.  Boris came over and we played Heroscape, a fabulous board game with attacking armies and dragons and samurais and elves.  It’s superbly genre-less

We also played whth my camera’s macro lens (pictures to follow) and had sushi twice.

But the big thing was the Banff Mountain Film Festival, which was in town this weekend.  Susie stayed home because of headache, but I really enjoyed it.  The best film was probably the ice climbers who went ice climbing on ice bergs.  They were, how you say, INSANE?

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
