christmas was good. i really enjoyed seeing my family. fortunately/unfortunately ive been working so i couldnt stay the night at any relatives houses to see family more. im working at the estate again. so ive got to get up at 7 to be there at 8. im only getting 2 or so hours of work though so i just come home and sleep again. one of the clydesdales died since i worked there last. so that was sad. and one of the polish arabians is gone, i dont know if it died or they gave it away like the other three. the swans had swanlettes or whatever they might be called and they are already full grown. i only saw them in egg form. they got more cows too. large animals frieghten me. i try to stay away from them as much as i can. im really tired. i wonder if that is why im talking in short sentences. like this. and this. my sisters boyfriend is in town so we went to kart2kart. its a fast go kart place. the cars hit 40-45 on the straight away. so my dad and eric(my sisters friendlyboy) and my dads brothers minus one and one of his sisters and another uncle and i all raced. that made 7 of us. i won. the race isnt for postition, just best time. one only gets about 15 to 16 laps in so position racing isnt really possible. my best posted time was a 30.71 lap time. no one else got below 31. the record is 28 something so there isnt much of a difference. i spun out once trying to pass my dad. we were coming off the straight away and in video games i take the inside and wait until the last moment to slam the brakes and use the outside guy(played by my dad this time) as a bumper to steer me through a little and of course pass. well i hit the brakes too hard and turned to sharply and went straight into the wall. so i also got the worst lap time of 74 seconds. even with that though, i still had a 35 second something average. i think i want to do this more often. its a blast. and ive never lost to a family member. unfortuntaly its 20 bucks per time it takes to do 16 laps. i think its ten minutes.
ive heard the joke often that america should just attack canada and make them a 51st state ‘because they practically are already.’ and altough they arent practically the 51st state, there is a reason we dont attack canada. back in the 1700’s, the americans tried twice to conquer canada and failed both times. not only did they fail, but they failed with canada and the americans having about the same ratio of american soldiers to the brittish in the american revolution. which means when america tried to attack canada, the americans had a whole lot more troops than the canadians. so the canadians held off the americans and the americans signed a treaty saying they wouldnt attack canada again. so um, put that in your yankee pipe and smoke it.
