Wow... 5,812 visits to this blog since the 27th of this year, when I first had the Clustr Map uploaded onto my blog. And it covers quite a swath too. Given my fascination with the Arctic, Baffin Island (Iqalit I am guessing) is a welcome edition as is what I am guessing to be Churchill, Manitoba. Thoth in Taiwan continues to scare me, in that he seems to visit my blog more often than I do. Saudi Arabia and UAE are probably all my friend Glen, who's working in Qatar. Visitors from the UK seem to be growing as are the places in South America. Still, please feel free to drop a line on the blog even if just to say "Hi", "Hello", "Allo", "Hey", "Hei", "Hallo", Здравствулте!, etc.
It's that time of year again: Grey Cup. A friend is having a Grey Cup party, but I have other things to do. I could care less about organized sports, as I have indicated on here before. BC won and I suppose that's kind of cool, but it just doesn't matter to me at all. Just seems that Organised Religion has either been entirely relpaced or supplemented by Organised Sports. Funny thing is you can say you don't believe in a religion and get fewer askew looks than if you say you don't follow a particular sport.
I spent my day drinking actually. Uisge Beatha, Gwirod - Water of Life. Whisky and one pint o' Smithwicks. Hard alcohol doesn't have that great an effect on me, not like beer. Whiskies of the day included Redbreast and Tullamore Dew representing Ireland and for Scotland we have Cragganmore and a 15 year old Arran Island whisky aged in port casks. By virtue of the Arran entry in to the competion, I declare Scotland to be the winner. (may my Irish ancestors heap forgiveness upon my soul and may the taste of Redbreast never lose its charms) If my Mum is reading this, she is no doubt having the heart attack she believes I ought to be having - but relax Mum, I am fine.
