19th Birthday

Filed under: Life — Canuckistan @ 7:12 pm

August 17th was my birthday. Got some pretty cool gifts.

First of all, thanks to Rob and family for the card and Texas Hold’em lottery scratch game. In the first match, I nearly won $20,000. I thought I had the card beat, but it beat me with a full house (three 6’s and 2 kings), to my straight (6,7,8,9,10 of mixed suits).

I got an ipod nano. It is pretty cool, I can post what I have on it sometime. I bought 4-5 songs off itunes for $0.99 a piece. If there is anything I have on it you would like me to send you for free somehow, just say.

I also got a tripod for my digital camera (Canon Powershot SD700 IS). This stand allows me to keep the camera from shaking the picture (which most cameras do at night).

Couple of DVDs (Die Hard 2, and Die Hard with a Vengeance, as well as Les Boys)

In the afternoon went to the driving range. My shots are improving, at least most are consistently in the air and deep-ish now. Before I was getting a lot of grounders, etc. Andall and I were trying to hit the golf ball collector tractor, he hit it once (I hit it a few weeks ago) . He hit it right off the windshield, and I hit it off the wheels. Quite funny!



  1. Thatd be nuts if you won 20 000$.

    What color is your nano? Mine’s black…. if u want some recommended music: coldplay, red hot chili peppers, and the dropkick murphys.. lmao..

    We’ll have to go out golfing next time we’re in the same region. Trying to hit the tractor is the best, i smoked it a few years ago, but last time i was out the guy stopped 40 yards out and let me have a free shot; i somehow missed.

  3. I was planning to make the trip to the Atlantic Lottery Office in Moncton to claim my $20,000 (Why couldn’t the offices be in Halifax? Larger and more interesting)

    My nano is silver, but I find the black looks the nicest. Got the 2 GB version (I am certain I will most likely never fill it). You must have the 8 GB version if its black right? At the moment I have mostly AC/DC, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Guns N’ Roses, Kiss, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and ZZ Top on there. Contemplating adding some of the bands you listed along with Andy’s recommended Aerosmith, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Velvet Revolver.

    Would love to go to a driving range/golfing with you sometime. I guess its impossible to this year, but perhaps next summer?
