In Memoriam

We will always remember.

I had a dream

I dont think Im normal.
I know you feel the same.
I know you feel the same about me.

And Dream Doctor out there to tell me what this means?

Im in Moores (the store, not the actor who played the Saint) trying on earth color shirts.

All night long.
All night.

In other news, I’m Sheldon.

This guy is sitting in my spot.

Blogged from my iPhone while riding the bus.

Edited to fix the picture issue.

It’s that time of the month*

As some of you following me on Twitter and/or on FourSquare, you already know that I got an iPad for LovelyWife last Friday.

How sweet is this?

I originally didn’t plan on getting LovelyWife (or myself) an iPad, but as I walked past the overflowing Rideau Centre Apple Store, I casually asked one of the Apple Dudes** if all of these people were in line to buy an iPad. I mean it was ridiculous, I couldn’t even see the back of the store.

He said no, that all these people were just “browsing”. He then asked me which model I was thinking of getting, handed me a card that had a picture of an iPad and waved over an Apple Dudette*** that looks just like¬†OhSarahJoy used to look.¬†CloneFromPastSarah took me to the back of the store, parting the sea of “browsers” before me, handed me a box, swiped my credit card and wished me a great week-end. I was in and out in less than five minutes**** with a brand spanking new 32G Wi-Fi iPad.

For LovelyWife.

I’ve already said that I’m not part of the target client√®le for the iPad – I got a laptop that I carry around all the time and an iPhone – but I gotta admit that’s a pretty cool toy to have.

The screen is brilliant, the weight and feel is awesome. The apps are pretty cool, but I already knew that from the iPhone. I think it makes a lot of sense for an in-house use and replaced the older laptop LovelyWife was using to browse the web, read the news, watch some tv on the computer or get recipes.

Let’s not forget Sudoku.

So I’d say this is an all-around great buy. I’m guessing it’ll get even better as we discover new ways of using the device.

Now if there was only a user-facing camera integrated. That will be the second generation iPad. That one will be mine.


*I figured that I’d get the “pad” joke out of the way as quickly as possible.

** I know they’re called Apple Geniuses, but really the Dude was just handing out business card sized pieces of paper identifying the model of iPad you were buying. I’m ¬†sure he’s not really a Genius.

*** Dudette did a little more than the Dude, and did it efficiently. Closer to a Genius. Almost.

**** This setup is for BluePaintRed. I owed you at least one, Blue. How’s that chin of yours, BTW?

Holy Crap, it’s a post from LeSombre


My name is LeSombre, and you might remember me from past posts on this here blog. It’s kinda hard to explain what’s been going on with me and the subsequent lack of posting, but since you all been extremely nice with me over the years, I feel I kinda owe you some sort of explanation.

So it’s like this.

If you look at my back¬†catalog¬†of posts, you’l probably figure out that I blog about the little things that make me laugh, cry, think, smile, yell, boil, pee my pants, go awwwwwww. And some other topics too.

Without going in many great details, let’s just say that the stuff that’s taking a lot of space in my life right now is not stuff that I really want to blog about. Life at Castle LeSombre is not all that it’s supposed to be, and work has entered a stage of suckiness like it never did before. Yes, LovelyWife reads my blog. Yes, my boss reads my blog. It wouldn’t be fair to them to read about the important stuff in my life via this blog¬†– hence no new blog posts. I had to make sure that things were somewhat sorted out at home, and that my boss knew that I felt my professional life was/is in what I consider a very bad place at this point.

With that said, it is pretty hard for me to “bring the funny” about trivial stuff when I have so much serious and important stuff on my mind.

I was hoping that the job thing would be a temporary thing. It doesn’t look like it’s going to be.

I was hoping the home thing would be a temporary thing. I honestly have no clue what’s going on there.

So I’m at a crossroads. Once more. I don’t like pretending everything is all right, and I don’t want to blog about the stuff that’s wrong. The stuff that’s wrong takes 98% of my brain power right now, so that doesn’t leave a lot of space for anything else. But seriously, 2% of my brain power is still a lot of brain power.

So I’ll say this one last time: Work sucks and life at Castle LeSombre is not perfect. Now I’ll never blog about those things again.

Now that I got that out of the way, I’ll try to use the remaining 2% of my brain to entertain you. To entertain me.

So there you have it.

The show must go on.
