I'm on a horse.

My friend Mel sent me a text yesterday saying "Hey, what are you doing tomorrow? I'm going for a drive. I'll pick you up at 9:30 a.m." I was tempted to answer "Hey, what do you think I am - a jobless hobo with nothing to do on weekdays?"

Except that I am.

I asked if I had to wear a party dress or heels or something stupid, and she said yes, wear your Sunday best. So I humoured her, and I put on pants and actually brushed my hair before leaving the house.

Last week I finally reached my breaking point and was ready to give up future children in return for a haircut. I thought it would be cool to go get some euro-chic Norwegian do, but the 550 Kroner price tag was a bit out of my budget. And waiting out the 14 days with my mental institute hair, before heading home for a proper cut, did not cross my mind as a legitimate or tolerable option.

Forget therapy, here's a wrench that should take care of this nut

wrench

Today we ran into the Norwegian equivalent of Canadian Tire to grab some acetone and some obscenely oversized wrenches.

My first question ... what bolt is this wrench endeavouring to tighten? All I can picture is some construction worker building a skyscraper ... "Hey Bjorn, the building's leaning a little to the left - can you check to see if that big bolt that holds it together is tight?"

This is my baby brother Eric ...

wedding

I know it's sometimes hard to tell that we are related, given that he has a steady job, owns a house and knows how to cook, but our mutual love of bacon is a dead giveaway.

Yesterday we married him off, so I had to get dressed up all classy, and put on underwear and brush my hair, and act all sophisticated like, you know?
