Despite the title, this isn’t a post about my sex life.

I know it’s been awhile since my last post.
I have alot to say, so let’s get to it.

So last Saturday, it was crappy outside, so I stayed home.
Later that day, I spent the Evening with my Wife.

Luckily, the next day was beautiful, so we took full advantage of it.

We started off by heading Downtown to check out a Cafe that my Wife heard about.
The place is called Xpresso, and it’s right behind the Metro Grocery Store on Rideau Street.
It’s a pretty nice place, but the pictures on their Website make it look bigger than it is.
The Bathroom is Wheelchair Accessible, they also sell my favorite Beer, and their Espresso’s pretty good.
They also have TVs everywhere.
On Thursdays, they have live Music, so I plan on checking that out at least once this Summer.
If you’re in Ottawa, I suggest you check it out.

If you go, tell them Ryan sent you. They’ll have no idea who the hell you’re talking about, but it might be funny.

So after that, we went Shopping.
Now, as most Married Men know, Shopping with your Wife or sig other is never as quick or easy as we envision.

By the time we were done, it was time for me to go home for a bit.
About thirty minutes later, we headed back out, and walked down by the River.
We just walked around, took pictures of the scenery, and then headed home.
It was nice & romantic.

Monday was my big appointment for my new Wheelchair.
This is the day that I’d get to take a loaner Chair home to try it out.
Before I did that, I got transferred from my old Chair to a bed, so they could transfer my seat to the other Chair.
From there, I got put back into the new Chair, and all set up so I could try out the new Joystick.

At first, I had a hard time driving it because it was too fast, and it kept tipping backwards. I also kept running into things.
After a few minor adjustments, I tried it again, and it went much better.

Later that day, I went to the park to try it out in a wide opened space.
Everything kept getting easier, plus I’m typically a quick learner.

Originally, I was just gonna try it until Thursday, but I was unable to get to my Appointment.
As of now, I’m not sure when I’ll be returning it.
I wish I could try it out for the whole Summer while the paperwork’s being processed, but I doubt it.

On Wednesday, I co-taught a Workshop about Stand-Up Comedy.
This was for people with various Mental Disorders, which made things interesting.

We started off with six people.

One person decided to draw instead of taking notes.
One person became agitated/uncomfortable and decided to leave.
Another person kept coming & going, but eventually stayed.
We ended up having 5 people left by the time it ended.

All in all, it was an interesting experience.
I hope to do it again eventually.

I got home around 1:35 pm.
Little did I know, my day was about to become more interesting.

At 1:41 pm, as I was heading back out to get an Espresso, an Earthquake happened, and it was big, at least for this Area.
My Wife called to see if I was ok, and luckily, everything was ok. Nothing fell or broke.
Her Office Building was being evacuated.

From there, I headed out to try to find her.
I just had this sense that she needed me, and I wanted to be there for her.
Sadly, I couldn’t find her though.
I guess I’ll never make the cover of a cheesy Romance Novel.

There were TONS of people standing around outside because every Office Building Downtown got evacuated.
After awhile, I gave up looking for her & tried to get an Espresso, but most places were closed due to the Quake.
I came across Tim Horton’s, and managed to get a Coffee.

I headed home, & my Wife called soon after that.
She bought me an Espresso, which was damn good.
So at that point, I had half a Cup of Coffee, plus an Espresso.
Since I got up at 8, I needed them both.

We were supposed to go to the Jazz Festival that night, but it rained.
Instead, we ended up having a nice quiet Evening together.

Thursday was a Holiday for French people, so I was able to spend part of the day with my Wife.
We had Espresso, and really delicious Chocolates.

As of now, no real plans this Weekend besides seeing my Mom before she leaves for a Month.

Sorry that this post was so long, but I hope you enjoyed reading it.


Well, I hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day Weekend.

On Sunday, my Wife and I went Shopping and I managed to buy two pairs of Pants for $50. I think that’s a pretty good deal.

Today, (Monday) my Wife and I checked out the Labor Day Parade here in Ottawa. Neither of us have ever been to it or even really heard about it before, so we were both curious.

Basically, it was different Workers being pissed off about unfair treatment at work. I always thought Parades were supposed to have happy people celebrating, but apparently not.

After they passed us, we decided to head to the Park where the Parade ended. There was a free BBQ, but we didn’t eat. We stayed for a few minutes just to check it out. The BBQ was at McNabb Park, where I used to go as a kid for Day Camp. I haven’t been there for 20 years, even though I pass by it often on the way home.

By this time, I was starting to melt like a Cripsicle (Crip Popsicle), so we decided to get an Iced Coffee. We went to Tim Horton’s, but they don’t make it. They just have Ice Caps, which don’t exactly agree with me. I guess the idea of putting Ice Cubes in Coffee is a wacky idea at Tim Horton’s. Just like the idea of hiring Staff there that can be understood, also seems like a pretty wacky idea.

But hey, I’m unemployed, what do I know?

We continued our journey in search of Caffinated Heaven, and we found Starbucks.

Ah Starbucks

Starbucks, Starfucks
The first Coffee Shop, I see opened today.
I wish I may.
I wish I might.
Need a Gasoline filled Coffee made just right.

We got an Iced Coffee and had it outside.
Afterwards, we headed down behind The Supreme Court Building to soak up some more sun.

We headed home shortly afterwards.
All in all, we were out in the sun for over three hours.

Tonight, I’m gonna watch WWE Monday Night Raw.
Tonight’s special guest Host is none other than Bob Barker!

That’s gonna be odd to see, but hopefully he does a good job.

I admit that I still watch The Price Is Right, even though Drew Carey’s the Host.
It just isn’t the same without Bob Barker, but at least it isn’t Rosie O’Donnell.
She was rumoured at one point to replace Bob Barker.

Well, tomorrow I’m off to Walmart, which is always fun beyond belief.

That’s it for now.

Thanks for reading.

Hello Blog Fans.

My weekend started off crappy. I spent most of the day not feeling so hot. I’ll spare you the details as I’m sure some of you still wish to enjoy eating. I managed to get outside for about an hour on Saturday. Just enough time to grab a Coffee at Tim Hortons and take a brief scroll around the block.

Luckily, I felt a little better by the time the Montreal/Boston game. Great game except for the ending. I really hope Montreal wins on Monday.

Sunday went much better. I got tons of sun and then we went to a movie. We went to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I really enjoyed this movie and I give it 2 solid joysticks up.

So that was my weekend. I hope yours was good too.

Happy 4/20

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.

So last night, we watched Enchanted on DVD.

I gotta admit, it’s not bad. The singing was a bit much, but the rest was good. If you’re looking to score points with your sig other or watch a good Family movie,  you should check out Enchanted.

I had another Tim Hortons Coffee today and played roll up the rim. So far I’m 0-2 this year, but I’m still hoping to win.

Big Hockey game tonight between Ottawa & Toronto and I’ll be parked in front of my TV for it. I’ve been to Toronto several times and I really like it there, but I hate the Leafs.

Toronto also holds a special place in my heart because that’s where I proposed. I did it in our Hotel Suite in my boxers.

It was really hot and sexy, trust me.

My day started off at 10 am, which is early for me.

I headed downstairs to get my ride, which was actually waiting for me which is extremely rare. It just so happened that my Wife was heading out at the same time, so she got in my ride as well.

My first stop was Tim Hortons to grab a Coffee. I didn’t win anything in their “roll up the rim” contest, but the Coffee was damn good as always.

We sat down for a few minutes before we went our seperate ways to do errands.

I bought Coffee Beans (Sumatra) to have at home, Coffee flavoring, a new Ottawa Senators Coffee mug, Kleenex, Razor Blades, Q-Tips, Ottawa Senators Scarf.

I’m set for awhile, including the NHL Playoffs.

After I returned home, I did Laundry.

I plan on relaxing tomorrow until we head out to see The Bank Job.
