What about me?...

Alex is: David Hasselhoff!

hmm...no...what's so special about him...what about me? What about MY everyday?? It can be pretty damn exciting! Hey! I know...

David Hasselhoff is: Alex!


He drives vehicles! Vroom vroom indeed! Am I right ladies?


He works an office job! Fax and send indeed! Am I right ladies??


He ponders life's tough questions! To be or not to be indeed! Am I right ladies???


He employs multiple forms of transportation! 4 wheels good, 2 wheels even better! Am I right ladies????


He bets on dog fights! Man's best friend indeed! Am I right ladies of PETA?????


He has no shame!
***comments removed at request of Mr. Hasselhoff as he claims that he does in fact possess some shame, and refuses to simply be a piece of eye-candy***
hmm...looks like I'll have to step in here...

umm..ladies? Hello?...anyone?...



In case you haven't figured it out yet...this has been my 2009 entry for Megan's 2009 Being David Hasselhoff contest. Not that I wouldn't do this on my own...but...

McNorthern!

As was once said by someone far wiser than I...A good blogger is one that updates somewhat regularly...so with that in mind, I gotta get back in my groooooove-thang!

Today, being Wednesday, I figured it would be an ideal day to take advantage of capitalism and have somebody else make lunch for me. I know what you're thinking: ummm Alex, even though you are incredibly good looking, surely you realize that there's no fast food joints in Fort Simpson. So prepare to be disappointed. Man you really are good looking!
Well loyal reader, how wrong you are!...about the fast food. Just the fast food. Right about everything else. *ahem*

If you're hungry or have been known to consume food in general, you may be jealous by what I am about to show you...bon appetit! (and yes, I did have to google bon appetit to make sure it wasn't actually spelled apetit...as delicious as that may sound)

NOM NOM NOM am I right?

No?

Well I thought so at least...

Cameron Falls all up in your face..DEAL WITH IT!

Alright so it appears I've pulled a 360 and not changed a thing about my deadbeat blogger ways...so instead of trying to catch up on the uncatchable...I'm scraping this whole "here's what I've been up to! doo doo la dooooooo!" nonsense and gonna live in the moment!
...with the one exception of some shots that I took a couple of weeks ago while in Yellowknife for the weekend. If you're feeling gyped by my complete inconsistency...well...then....sucks to your asthmar!

Where were we again? Ah yes:

So my girlfriend took me to a cool little spot outside of Yellowknife that's located-wait...nevermind, forget I mentioned anything about this place...

I will permit you to view upon these photos...but NO NOTEPADS OR CAMERAS WILL BE PERMITTED! Take only mental notes of these:







hey, photographers need love too.


Talk to you soon? Deal.

What I did on my summer vacation...(Part 2)

AAAAAAAAAAnd now for the 2nd part of our featured 3 part mini-series...
JULY


So we pick up where JUNE left off...where our glorious hero was last seen departing Nova Scotia with his trusty side-kick...Girlfriend. (No wait! There's pictures! How many times do I have to tell you that she's no imaginary??)
So we arrived in Ottawa after a brief flight and quickly got to work with a straight week of....well...mostly nothingness. (side note: I had no idea that "nothingness" was a real word...spell check didn't even ding me for it!) We actually were staying outside of the city with some friends for the first few days...Arnprior to be precise. And for those not in the know, Arnprior is to Ottawa what buttons are to shirts: Kinda pointless until someone tells you that it's inappropriate to expose your chest hair while eating in a public restaurant and then they are a GODSEND! (am I right!?)
Okay so maybe Arnprior wasn't all that exciting...but once we went into the city we involved ourselves in lots of touristy type activities including visiting Parliament:



Taking "bad-as-I-wanna-be" pictures:



Spotting dirty words:


Drinking our faces off at bars on Canada Day:



annnnd setting up elaborate dinners so that I may address the people:


Well that just about wraps up our July flash-back....and thank god there's only August left to bring us up to date because, well let's be honest, who really cares about things that happened MONTHS AGO!?....I'll tell who cares! I DO!... OR, if that response isn't your style, how about: You have to know where you've been to know where you're going? Yeah! History! Woohoo!

Today's post was brought to you by the thought: "and I should care because?..."

You take care now.

What I did on my summer vacation...

After receiving some gentle encouragement from a close imaginary friend of mine I have returned from my lengthy summer vacation to the blogosphere! (yes I hate that word too...but I also love it. It is a hateful lust I hold)

Looking back at my blog (which, I just realized, has been in existence for 2.5 years! woohoo for made up accomplishments!) I have seen that I've been less than consistent over the summer months when it comes to updates. Who could forget the great drought of '07 when my posts per month went from a whopping 3 a month down to 1, followed by a coma of 5 months. 2008 was slightly better, but things still slowed to a gooey-like substance over the summer months with just enough posts being made to convince the Dehcho Drum to not run my obituary.

A number of things can be attributed to my lack of bloggery (why not?) recently...
1) No interwebs at home until last week
2) A girlfriend (remember, this isn't a list of bad things.... Just things! Reasons! Factors! Good god why is she looking at me like that?! Eeeeeeep!)
3) No time
(see: above, traveling, golf, golf patio, etc etc)

I know I have a lot of work to do to make up for lost time and sessions of incoherent ramblings and rantings on my part...so let us begin!

JUNE

From the time of my last update, June was likely the busiest of months in the Alexorian Calendar (Similar to the Gregorian Calendar, but more me like).
There was a friend's wedding:

(and no, it wasn't one of those weddings where 6 guys marry each other. But we were all in attendance at the wedding)

Aboriginal Day:
This is the Pole Push event, which...we....WON!
(And it was even an event for grown-ups)

Here's a shot of the womens canoe races...which were much more thrilling than the mens....I say this mainly because I was in the mens and finished a pitiful 4th place. In my defense, I thought we would do awesome because of my paddling background but as it turns out, we sucked. Good story huh??


and then the day following Aboriginal Day my lovely girlfriend and I packed all our belongings in a romantic hobo-like frenzy and then drove to Yellowknife where we hopped on a plane to Halifax.
I took her to a few touristy sites like Peggy's Cove (which I always called "Piggy's Cove" until I was 22-errr make that like 5):

As you can see, one thing I didn't take her to was a restaurant.


-Unfortunately we only had time to spend 5 days in Nova Scotia...but it was good to see the family and a few friends. I even got to go surfing and name-drop a pro-surfer relative of mine and get some free surf gear rentals and then go surfing while very hungover and then feel kind of sick and then I stopped.
The previous sentence was sponsored by:Megan! Thank you for your continued support!


So that's about it for June...tune in the next few days while I recap the exciting adventures of.....JULY, and then we will come to the exciting summer conclusion where we will find out if AUGUST will continue his alliance with the Summer months or if he will defect to the evil Fall! DUN DUN DUNNNNN!

psst!

< English>

hey! hey!
(Sorry about the binary stuff there...you pompous Canadians seem to think simply everyone should use the Roman Alphabet)
Anyway...listen:

It's me. Alex is Up North. No no, not Alex the blogger...it's me...the blog.

That deadbeat of a blogging prick Alex won't get his ass in gear and update me so I've become self-aware and employed the services of my good friend Knorben Knussen and switched his morning coffee with new Columbian Decaf Coffee Crystals to teach him a lesson. I'll admit...things didn't go exactly as...uhh....planned. But after some clean up, he seems to have smartened up and be ready to be faithful to me, and more importantly, to you, (the likely lone remaining) reader.


Stay tuned for a back-to-school summer vacation update extravagannnnnnnnzaaaaaaaaa!


On a completely unrelated note...
ahem

Thank you.
