1:03 pm - In Conclusion
I've recently been very cryptic in what I have posted. I apologize to anyone who reads this expecting to laugh. I've decided that as part of the paradigm shift in my life I am ending the Anthology of Interest. I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your thoughts and support. Thank you for being such loyal fans, even during the worst parts of this journal, i could count on your comments to keep me going.

It's been hard to wake up in the morning these past few months to the feeling of anxiety, tension and sadness. I have experienced so much hurt and pain and tried my best to keep the happy face. I don't regret anything that has happened. I found that it's made me much stronger as a person to have been dealt such a crushing blow, brought on by a few careless mistakes and then get back on my feet. It has always been part of my personal philosophy that things have to get worse before they get better. Remember that even in your darkest times, there is always hope to keep you going.

In the weeks to come I am going to lay a bit low and concentrate more on what it is that I love to do. In the early fall keep a look out for some new web content and hopefully more additions to The Mega City Manifesto. I plan on taking this livejournal offline in December after i have reviewed all the entries and carried some of the better ones over the the Manifesto, which has been a work in progress for almost a year.

Again thanks to all loyal readers for support,
I will continue to post on your journals and I wish all of you the best in your lives,

Sincerely,
-Drew

so the secret is out.
I didn't tell alot of people about the engagement, but rather someone read about it on my blog and then told everyone else. Which is okay with me.
Some people dismissed it as an April fool's joke. I'm glad Julia found out when i was in Brampton this week.

P.S. - Brampton, what the fuck?

It is so tremendously hard for me to get out there, but I have to work out at the DC for the next week. If it wasn't for The Lone Consultant this week would have been a disaster.
Unfortunately last night I had to figure out a way home by myself and one of the SAP guru's drove me to Meadowvale (which is west mississauga) to catch a train. 3 hours later i finally got home.

So let that be a lesson, stay the hell away from Brampton.

oh and happy good friday

7:15 pm - Greeting From London...
I just sent this email to Dave....

- - -

Hi Dave,

Well this is it.
Alison is in the bathroom putting on make up before we go to see matthew good at call the office. Alison and I told each other we loved each other 4 years ago in front of the Mrs Pac-Man machine. I wonder if it's still there.

ring? check
hotel room? check
concert tickets? FUCK!
oh well, i'll buy some off the street.

Here I am sitting in a hotel room on a lap top and wondering what this is all going to lead too (although I have a pretty good idea). In a little under two hours I will be engaged. I am drinking a huge glass of red wine to break the ice (Alison smuggled it on the via train this afternoon as a birthday surprise for me).

Tomorrow's check out time is at noon I was curious perhaps if you and Jen wanted to go out for lunch/brunch/munch? our train leaves at 3 45 so we've got plenty of time to kill.

Shoot me back an email when you get this, I will check my emails around midnight tonight.

-Drew
P.S. It's my birthday tomorrow, I just think it would be nice

-I have today off work

-My Birthday is on Sunday

-I'm in London all weekend

-I need surgery to get my wisdom teeth taken out, I still have a cracked tooth.

-My new dentist has blown my mind with digital x-rays that project in front of you so you can see what the problem is! She took a small pen camera and took digital photos on the inside of my mouth to show me which teeth needed to be taken out. I was really really impressed.
total cost of X rays 60 bucks and slight radiation to the head.

-My new coverage for the benefits plan kick in this weekend after which time I'm going "to town" on my mouth and getting everything fixed.

-Until yesterday it had been 5 years since I had seen a dentist.

-Next weekend I want to go out with my book selling brothers and sisters and get faced. The main reason- for the last four years we waited for Da Vinci Code to come out in paperback. This past Tuesday it was released and Indigo has a company wide onhand in the hundreds of thousands. It's not selling as well as I would have expected, which leaves me to three conclusions:
1.) Everyone bought a copy overseas
2.) Everyone already owns the hardcover
3.) All those customers who asked for Da Vinci in paperback and then proceeded to argue with us, probably didnt care either way and truly were just fucking with us.

3:59 pm - pet-sitting, parents-sitting
I went pet sitting with Alison last night after I introduced her to everyone at work who thought she was a figment of my imagination.

At the pet sitting house we fed Valium to the deaf, yowling cat, than took Emma the massive black lab for a walk. We encountered a pit-bull (not muzzled) tied to a fence who went ape shit and I thought all three of us would get killed.

Alison and I shared a small bed and Emma the massive dog slept in between us and scratched the shit out of my chest.

Today I'm off to visit my parents in Burlington after I feed my cat, then its come back Monday to see if I can get a dentist appointment to fix the half of my mollar that chipped off during Wednesday morning's meeting. If you have ever had half a tooth you know how much it sucks. With my luck they will have to pull out all my molars and then I'll ask for wooden teeth because there is no way I can afford gold ones.

oh yeah and my cat ate through the blinds in my bedroom to look out the window.

11:14 am - wheels on the bus
I spent a few hours in London Ontario yesterday seeing Dave from high school.
Mike S and I spent 7+ hours on buses.

Some of the bus stops seemed unnecessary, like Ingersol.

Alison Says:
"I love that you come to gay bars with me."

Drew Says:
"I love that I come home from gay bars with you."

Friday Night Kaite, Jen, Alison, Adrian and I went to Tango on church street. We drank lots. Kaite says I danced really sexy with her but i don't remember.

I just went through my friends page and took a look at all the drama going on latley. I feel sort of like one of those UN observers, or maybe at the very least the dirty guy at the peep show who sits in the front row.

Last night Alison thought Jen was angry at her but after several drinks i guess they were cool because the skipped to the bar holding hands.
Kaite and I were thinking about ditching them and seeing if they noticed. Instead we all hung out with Adrian and got drunk.

theres so much more to this story but i can't finish so use your imagination and post something.

Instead of watching the smutty oscars I made Alison and me a giant steak dinner with red wine and roasted peppers. I even made some crackers with cheese and pickled things on them. Then i drank too much wine and Alison and I decided that we needed to sit down and watch the oscars. So we flick on the T.V. just before 11:30 to hear Jon Stewart say "Goodnight" and it was over.

I don't remember the oscars ever ending before 11:30.

P.S. I killed King Koopa and saved the princess last night too.

7:50 pm - last weekend in Burlington
I don't care you think you are, it was fucking snowing and negative 20 outside and your unbuttoned Hawaiian shirt left nothing to the imagination.

P.S. thanks for stealing my cab - dick.

1:01 pm - my girlfriend's LJ and a shamless plug.
Somehow last night the topic of conversation at the bar turned into Alison publishing intimate details of our sex life on her blog.
Apparently everyone had read these but me, which in itself, I guess says something.

I just went through her LJ to see if i could find the post everyone was talking about. but I couldn't. whatever, I'm over it. See you can find it over here let me know, because you all made it sound much racier than my actual sex life is (I don't remember owning leather cuffs).
