Delays

Once again, I'd like to apologize for the lack of updates recently; the last few days have been a whirlwind of wedding events, completing errands and various family obligations. I'll certainly have a lot to write about my trip once I get back: I simply require the distance (both physical and mental) to put my thoughts and emotions into perspective. There are still eleven days in Dubai to go, and a lot more work and attention is pending. The consensus on my vacation so far is mostly good, with some fantastic moments, and others not so much. Anyways, I digress... #17 on the list should be coming up soon for those who are interested.

By the way, thanks to you all for the birthday wishes. It was the first one celebrated outside of Canada since 1992, so that was an interesting experience. How does 22 feel, you must be thinking? Not any different than 21. There you have it, make of it what you will.

I really want to go see Pirates of the Caribbean 2 while I'm here, but I'm afraid the censors will delete that much-hyped kiss between Keira Knightley and Johnny Depp (yeah, you read that right). What to do, what to do?

I figured your disappearance involved something along those lines. Enjoy the rest of your time--looking forward to hearing about it.

Funny though, 22 ended up being a major birthday in emotional terms--much more so than 21, anyway. Regardless, I didn't realize it was your birthday, so happy belated birthday!

Why apologize for the lack of updates?

Oh, I forgot, you care for your readership. You're such a good kid.

I don't think anyone but "cool" fratboys really notice a difference between their 21st birthday and their 22nd.

Well, I wouldn't apologize usually; it's just that I'm in the middle of the list countdown, and I know what it's like to want closure.

I'm trying to decide if I should be offended by this. Since I'm not the type to really get offended though, I've opted for not. :)

Jesse, please do not be offended by that; if anything, you should feel better about yourself.

Ali said...

Well, they didn't censor the kiss.

That's good but... the movie stil sucks no? Hehe.

90% plot, 10% substance.

Well, that was the proverbial 'final nail in the coffin.' Now I'm sure I won't be seeing it.

All I have left this summer is Woody Allen's new flick, Scoop -- which I don't even really want to see (only 2 more left until I complete his 38 film oeuvre!).
