god bless

Recently read in my inbox:

"Congratulations! Your portfolio presentation was strong and your application for admission to the Ontario College of Art & Design has been successful. On behalf of the University, I am delighted to extend the offer of admission to the first year, Bachelor of Fine Art program in the Faculty of Art."

HOLY CRAP.

ummm...

Yesterday afternoon we got a frantic call from Kirk's mum.

Apparently there had been an explosion at a Tim Horton's on Yonge near Bloor.

She called just to see if we were OK.

I was all, "uuuuuh, no, I didn't hear any explosions this afternoon"

"Are you sure?"

"I'm pretty sure I'd remember it if I had." (we live 25 city blocks from there)

Lotsa people freaked out and thought maybe the terrorists had finally come to Canada.

Idiots. "They'd have to be stupid bombers if they were aiming for the subway and hit a Tim Hortons," said TTC chairman Howard Moscoe, living up to his reputation for plain speaking. "It sounds like a tall tale."

Current theory: some loser who probably wanted to kill himself, dowsed himself with gasoline and set himself on fire. only the autopsy and jerry can of gasoline he carried in with him, found nearby, will tell.

WOW! I never knew you were skilled in the art of aerosals, too! Kinda hard to make that part of your portfolio though, don't you think?

Oh, and it's not Kirk's mum andmore. It's "my mother-in-law" or MIL...

Ha Ha! and congrats!
