So, Oliver survived the Christmas play. We admired his steely resolve (read “stage struckedness”) to not sing any of the words to the “and shepherds salved Jesus’ heart upon the breast of Mary”-type songs. He was cute in his shepherd costume, delighted to see Santa Claus, and happy to introduce his Uncle Johnny to all his friends and teachers.
Earlier in the day our attempt to go to Interlude for “Gung Bao Thursday” was thwarted by Jodi’s revelation that they are closed until Dec. 14th. So I had to make do with a cheeseburger platter from & Country">The Town & Country. I miss you, Gung Bao… I miss you.
On the way to the T&C I noticed that the City of Charlottetown is about to unveil a new Town Clock on a pedestal on the corner of Kent and Queen. As the person who (inadvertently) drummed the last public clock out of town back in 2002, don’t I deserve some place at the opening ceremonies later in the month?
Finally, I am giving serious consideration to the notion of switching from a “bar” shaver (a Braun 3612) to one of the newer “rotary” models, like those made by Philips. When I first started to shave, it was with my Grandpa Ross’ Norelco (it was later stolen from my house, believe it or not, in a brazen robbery); I’ve been using Brauns (with a break for a Panasonic wet/dry, also a “bar” shaver) ever since. I simply seems like the three rotating blades would inevitably make shaving go faster and “closer.” I welcome any comments from the readership on this feeling.
