I didn’t feel like posting yesterday because I wasn’t feeling that great.
Not that I’m feeling any better today, but I felt like I needed to write here.

As the title reads, I’m deeply frustrated, about my health.
Every day now, at some point, I’m experiencing problems breathing.
While it can be really scary at times, it’s also frustrating as hell.
Instead of being able to go outside and do stuff, it completely zaps my energy and my desire to do anything.
It seems all I want to do is curl into a ball and just enjoy the amount of air that I can get.

The crappy part is that I have tons of stuff coming up.

— Some of my Wife’s Family’s coming this Weekend.
— My Wife & I are heading to WWE Smackdown on Tuesday.
— In between those things, I’m training new Attendants as well.
— Deal with new Attendants working alone, which can be stressful.
— Plus, I also have to meet with Staff at Bluesfest soon to discuss Wheelchair Accessibility, as I’ve been doing for the past few years now.
— Canada Day, July 1st.
— Bluesfest in July.

& more…

Did I mention that my sanity has to remain intact for most of those things?

Now it’s time for some good news…

I’m happy to report that this Saturday, the Host of LOL will be discussing me.
I’m not exactly sure what he’ll say, but I’ve sent him a few things related to my Comedy.
You can catch the show on CBC Radio One, this Saturday at 6:30 pm Eastern.

If you can’t catch the original broadcast, it will be on the CBC site shortly after the show ends.

Congratulations to the Montreal Canadiens on beating the Pittsburgh Penguins.

My #1 Hockey Team is the Ottawa Senators, but since we’re out, I’m cheering for Montreal.
I was a huge Habs fan when I was a kid, and I actually met many of the Players.
I met Patrick Roy, Guy Charbonneau, Chris Nylan, and many others.

Well that’s it for now.

Last night, I watched the Ottawa Vs Buffalo game. At one point, Ottawa was leading 2-0, but then it went into overtime, and even a shootout that Ottawa manage to overcome. I hate to say it, but I was expecting Ottawa to blow it yet again.

The rest of my night was spent vegging online and watching Saturday Night Live. Afterwards, I watched the movie, Be Kind, Rewind, which wasn’t that good.

So far, today I slept until 11 and spent the rest of the day catching up on TV shows that I taped from the past little while.

Apparently, my Wife went to Winterlude today with her Dad. I have no interest in going to it. It’s hard to get around and not exactly overly accessible. I guess they both mean the same thing.

I’m not really sure what I’ll be doing tonight, besides avoid watching The Grammy Awards. I hate to sound old, but I’m not really a fan of today’s music. It’s all hype, but followed by lack of talent.

I read somewhere that Etta James took a shot at Beyonce. Good for Etta. Beyonce’s MUCH hotter than Etta, but as the old saying goes, looks aren’t everything.

I actually saw Etta James perform at Bluesfest a few years ago. It was a good show, but she was batshit crazy. Her Son was part of her band, and she kept stripping and saying sexual things to the crowd. Personally, if that was my Mom doing that, I’d throw up in my mouth and spend the night questioning my and her sanity.

But then again, hardly a day goes by that I don’t question my sanity.

Well, on that lovely note. Thanks for reading and I’ll be back tomorrow.

Keep on rocking in the free world.

Finally, Spring has arrived.

I’ve been outside quite a bit the last few days soaking up the sun. It’s awesome to return to the “go out anytime-anywhere” way of life. Winter seemed to last forever.

So I played Boccia at the Rehab last night and then returned downtown just in time to do my set at Yuk Yuk’s. I was actually only there in the club for about 30 minutes. After my set, I hightailed it out of there and headed home. Along the way, I grabbed one of those bottled Green Tea drinks. It tasted good, but I didn’t know there was caffine in it.

Bad idea

I met my Wife for lunch today and we sat outside. Speaking of which, I’m heading back out soon. I don’t know where I’m going in this crazy world, but the road awaits me.

I have no comment regarding the Ottawa Senators.

Go Habs

Last night, I watched the Montreal vs Boston game. Montreal lost 2-1 in overtime. I’m telling people that IF Ottawa loses, I’ll be cheering for Montreal. I grew up a Habs fan and was lucky enough to meet many of the players while I lived in the hospital. At the time, they were the nearest NHL team. I’m also a fan of the City itself and my Wife was born there. As you can see, I have ties to the City in a few ways.

Meanwhile, my beloved Ottawa Senators trail their series with Pittsburgh 2-0. News surfaced this afternoon that Jason Spezza will return for tonight’s game and perhaps Daniel Alfredsson as well. This is obviously good news for the Sens, but they need to start shutting down the Penguins defensively. They also need to start scoring like we all know they’re capable of. Most of all, they need to get their heads out of their asses quick.

In other news…

Well, not much to be honest.

Alright, so this will be an actual post.

Yesterday, the Physio Therapist came by to beat my Chest. Chest Physio literally consists of someone pounding all over your Chest. The theory is that it loosens up mucous so it comes out easier. It doesn’t really hurt unless the person hits too hard. If that happens, yeah, it can be painful, but I’m pretty tough.

A little while later, I got suctioned. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned what that is so here goes. Suctioning involves putting a thin tube down my neck. The tube is attached to a machine that acts like a vaccum cleaner. The machine suctions mucous out from my lungs. It sucks (literally) but it’s one of the things that keeps me alive.

After I got suctioned, I suddenly had a blockage. Sometimes it’s serious and sometimes it’s just really annoying. This time it was semi serious, but subsided. It kept returning off & on for the next few hours, but it eventually came out.

When this happens, I get less air and end up feeling mentally foggy for the rest of the day and normally a headache too. Needless to say, it’s not overly fun for me.

I watched the Senators game, at least as much as I could. It was a close game, at least for a little while. Ottawa fell apart near the end and Pittsburgh won 5-3. They now lead the best of 7 series 2-0 and the next game’s Monday night here in Ottawa.

Tonight, my Wife & I are heading out to Dinner for our 4th anniversary. I’ll be back here tomorrow though.

Last night was great. As long as I ignore the fact that the Senators loss 4-0 to Pittsburgh in Game 1 of their playoffs series.

I called in sick for my show and had it changed to next week instead. It just means that I gotta pull double duty with Boccia and then my show that night, but I don’t care.

After my Wife returned from work yesterday, we spent some time together before the game started, which was wonderful.

By the time I turned the game on, it was 2-0 for Pittsburgh heading into the 2nd period. Not good.

This Weekend, we’ll be exchanging gifts and heading out to Dinner. Just like the first time we met, it’s supposed to rain all weekend.

I forgot to mention yesterday about the movie we saw on Tuesday night. I won 4 passes to see a screening of Sea Monsters. The movie was pretty neat. They’re were time where I felt like I was underwater.

After the movie, we walked home with a few pit stops along the way, including a stop at Tim Horton’s. We shared a Hot Chocolate, which helped me warm up.

After that, we watched Beauty & The Geek and that was it.

As for tonight, who knows what’s on tap.

I headed to Walmart today. I have a love/hate thing for Walmart.

A new Super Walmart opened up so I checked it out. The ride itself took just over an hour, which was really annoying. By the time I got there, I wanted to return home.

The freakin place is HUGE and even has a Grocery Store in it.
I spent about two hours going up and down the aisles.

People can be pretty dumb when it comes to getting out of my way. I give people two options if they’re in my way, move, or be moved. Things can be interesting when you drive a 500+ pound powered wheelchair. I do my best not to hit people, but sometime it’s unavoidable. On the other hand, sometimes I WANT to run over people, but I hold back.

If you want to piss off Walmart Shoppers and have a blast at the same time, here’s a tip.

Go with a friend. Grab two of those Scooters that they have. Race around the Store in them and if anyone asks, just say you’re doing the Walmart Indy and the winner gets a new Wheelchair. This also works if you’re in a Wheelchair already. If any of you actually do this, I want Pictures or a Video of it.

When I was Single, I’d often go to Bars or Clubs and get hammered. Driving home was often challenging, but I never got hit or anything and never got pulled over. I’d be curious to see a Cop do a Breathalyzer test on me while I’m using a Ventilator 24/7 to breathe. Just imagine the Cop’s face when I told him that.

So as for Walmart.

I bought some Shirts for Summer, & Mrs Doubtfire on DVD. Next week is my 4th Anniversary for my Wife & I. I bought a few things for that, but I’m not gonna say what right now.

I’m really not liking the new WordPress Dashboard. For one thing, they removed the word count thing. This may sound odd, but I like knowing how many words I typed in a post. I can’t really explain why, I just do. I’m sure there’s more things about it that I’ll uncover as time goes on. They should at least give people the option to use “Classic” Dashboard as well.

This is what happens when you give Nerds Red Bull.

So the Ottawa Senators loss last night, but managed to make it to the Playoffs. They pulled a Homer. Let’s see how well they do.

Well, that’s all for now.
