Same Ship, Different Day

.                                                             

My little book “Same Ship, Different Day” is now in print!

I think most of you have seen most of this stuff already in a little different form on WordPress already, so I would really like to send anyone and everyone on my blogroll a free copy to say thank you for reading and leaving comments on this blog.
My e-mail is: hey_ross@hotmail.com

Your names are at the back of the book as well! … if that is any incentive.

You can preview the entire book for free by clicking on the link below. Leaving a comment over at Blurb would be greatly appreciated as well.

 

note: a VERY BIG THANK YOU to Erica Pannen, Jan Kennedy, and Nancy Roberge for proofreading and offering constructive criticism.
… and a BIG THANK YOU to Kelly Pettit for doing the front and backcover up so nicely.

We get tired of writing notes to ourself, so we end up putting something else down at the bottom of these posts after notes to myself #199.

The Sweetest Things #3

 

I’m glad there were pirates in history because I really didn’t want to be a clown on Halloween as a kid.

 

note: whoever said ” Those who live by the swordfish  die by the swordfish” must have been talking to someone called “Fish“.

double note: I haven’t heard of too many people  being attacked by swords recently … there must have been a government crackdown on that or something.

triple note: I used to think it was “Pontius the Pirate” when I was a kid.

quadruple note:   wordpress  is having a video contest for things people are thankful for. I don’t have a video camera to be thankful for this year, but …
I thought I’d just throw some things I’m thankful for out there.

The first professional play you see is “Treasure Island” in Vancouver. It blows your little mind … and is probably the reason you wear a pirate costume every year on Halloween.

The Sweetest Things #2

 

Is there anyone who doesn’t like the cold side of the pillow?

… I thought so.

I stand uncorrected.

 

note:cold pillow talk” isn’t good sometimes.

double note: it’s a renewable resource.

triple note:  wordpress  is having a video contest for things people are thankful for. I don’t have a video camera to be thankful for this year, but …
I thought I’d just throw some things I’m thankful for out there.

quadruple note: if you missed the “The Sweetest Things #1” scroll down or click or something … it’s close by.

Don’t stand so close behind Alphie while playing ball hockey in grade 4: stitches are involved.

The Sweetest Things #1

 

Of everything I’ve learnt over the years … solving the shoe mystery is one of the sweetest.

 

note: wordpress  is having a video contest for things people are thankful for. I don’t have a video camera to be thankful for this year, but …
I thought I’d just throw some things I’m thankful for out there.

double note: Do people who don’t wear shoes screw up when they finally have to put a pair on? … just wondering.

triple note: the “underwear dilemma” still causes problems on dark days.

notes to myself #66

You master most of the childhood things: shoes on the right feet, telling time, shoelaces, bicycles, …
You will never be able to do the gap-toothed spitting thing though. sorry.

Not Sure With Out Genetic Testing

I recycled them in to the garbage after I did this.

 

 

note: wordpress should just add “possibly unrelated posts” at the bottom of each entry.

double note:  I wonder what this entry will generate as related posts. I guess I won’t know until I post it!

triple note: there is a familiar resemblance between all of these post-it notes: I think they are related.

quadruple note: is it really a post-it note before you write anything on it?

 

notes to myself #12

When you murder that person at 32 make sure you clean off the fingerprints on their glasses; and don’t be so lazy digging that hole.
… I’m just messing with you! … 32 is a very good year.
