  CN Tower: Climbed

Jack, George and I conquered the tower!

We were up at 5:30am, downtown, registered, and climbing by 7:00am...

Here's a shot of us, post-climb, looking quite victorious indeed with the tower looming in behind. It was a great experience, and for a great cause. We'll be doing it again next year, hoping to better our climb time of approx. 31 minutes.

We each got a nice tshirt with our time sharpied onto it, and also free passes to go back up the tower (using the elevator!), which was a nice surprise!

Afterwards we enjoyed a breakfast at Cora's before getting on with our day...

bAd mArk - Gratis goes bust! No more Free iPods, FreePay R.I.P. - Interesting news... I guess it was too good to be true! Gratis Internet, the company behind the FreePay sites (where Pete and I got our free Video iPods, has gone under...)

I totally want to get an XBOX 360 for free... Just checked out the forum site that focuses on the whole free stuff scene on the net, and found a new site/network called GetFriends, they have a number of different sites, get4friends, get5friends, get6friends, all with increasingly valuable gifts... The get6friends site offers the XBOX 360 Core System.... Ooh... Baby...

  My New Wheels
Check out my new car!

The lease on my Hyundai ran out in October, so I returned it, walked across the road to Saturn Mississauga, and picked up a 2007 Saturn Ion Sedan... I've had it for about a week now, really loving it... I'll take and post some decent pictures after I take it for a car wash :)
  Evil Nine Crooked Video
Evil Nine Crooked Video - This is a really wicked song, I think I heard it first at a drum and bass party, I've subsequently downloaded the album, and then came across this very cool Flash video... Check it out...

I think a lot. Some people say I think too much... However, I don't want to be seen as being aloof or pretentious, it's just that I really enjoy philosophical questions and deep thoughts. That's not to say that I don't find pleasure in more down-to-earth or trivial things, like beer and soccer :) I'm happily married with 3 wonderful children. I'm a partner in a technology services company based in Toronto. Myers Briggs says I'm an ENTJ
