Two weeks to the Day.

Two weeks from today I will load my stuff into my car and head West. I am looking forward to it. A lot of things have to happen in the next two weeks.

I have to go to Nova Scotia to see my family there. It's been awhile, and since I am leaving the Maritimes, it might be awhile again. So that is a must.
I have to go fishing. The season is practically over, but there is no salt-water fishing in Southern Ontario.

I have to drink coffee with about 15 different people, and take the time to say goodbye to each of them individually.
I need to move out of my apartment, and onto a friend's couch, by this Friday. Oh man it's getting crazy now.

Please, friends, pray for me. I am facing a tough fourteen days.
Soon it will all change, and I can get back to blogging about interesting things again.

Careful you don't overdose on caffiene ;)

We're looking forward to your return bud! :)

Guy, we'll have a party when you get here...

Wow! Who would have guessed they'd be so upset!

Before I left for Toronto for a couple of weeks my old friends Christopher Waffle, an inveterate onanist, and Jordan Metzler, who had a bad habit of slowing down while changing lanes when he was 16, got in touch with me. I hadn't spoken with either of them in years, and I was really happy to hear from them. They suggested that we get together when I come to Toronto, but I had so many things to do there that I guess I forgot to get a hold of them.
Well...they weren't happy about this. I received a very rude e-mail from Christopher, and Jordan seems so upset that I got nothing from him at all. I mean, how could they know why I didn't get in touch with them? That's just it: they couldn't have - they don't know everything - and people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those among us who actually do (ha ha). Yes, I did go on to write that it seems that the one thing the people in Toronto need (in my own limited view) is the one thing that I have been learning how to do, which is connect with others, live in community with each other, and be genuine about things that are lacking - which I suppose could also include getting in touch with old friends, but like my old pal Oscar Wilde said, The well-bred contradict other people. The wise contradict themselves.
Although I am an intellectual there are certain things I will never understand, such as why semen, despite being made up of simple sugars, tastes so salty; I guess this, why old friends get angry when you treat them like shit, is just one of those things.

Hmmmmm - that last comment doesn't sound like the Jake I know...

Michael, Right you are mate.

That comment was from one of my two very very good friends, Chris or Jordan, who have not gleaned from the last few posts of mine that while I said I would visit with them,


Hopefully they don't remain too angry for too long, because I am moving back soon, and if they stay mad at me I won't be able to face them, and bring forth the branch of reconciliation.

No seriously, guys, I am sorry I didn't look you up like said I would. That was a shitty thing to do.

Don't worry, Jacob: we still like you.

See you in Toronto.
