Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my dad's birthday. I am cooking supper for everyone tonight in honour of it. I went to the superstore today and bought a huge roast. It has been slow cooking in the oven all afternoon and my house smells really yummy! Kassie is out for the day and currently her and Colby are curled up in my bed, she is sleeping and he is watching TV. I am in the process of reading The Di Vinci Code for the second time, as I received the illustrated version for my birthday. This is such an amazing book. Kelly left a message on the machine last night wanting me to call them. I was talking to my brother this morning and they wanted to know if I would do all their wedding pictures! I was originally going to do black and white for them, but now they want me to do it all! I will be surfing the internet for different styles and poses for originality, to go along with the traditional pictures. I caught an episode of Taking It Off, on the Life Network last night. 3 of the 6 people on this show I know. There is Wendy, the call centre supervisor, who I work with, Big Reg, who is Joel's brother (Joel is a good friend of BJ) and there is Alyson, who is Alyson, damn, I can't think of her last name but I went to high school with her. I am dying to see Big Reg, as he started the show at 330lbs. This was going on for the last 6 months and has just only started airing in January. I have watched Wendy lose I believe over 60lbs, and on a woman as "vertically challenged" as she is, it is extremly noticable. Everytime I see her I just want to hug her. She is beautiful. She is literally 1/2 of the person she once was. A year ago beautiful is not the word I would have used to describe Wendy. She literally was a very short, fat woman who dressed like a man because I assume these were the only clothes that would fit her. She waddled, not walked. She has always been a beautiful soul, but now her outside is just as beautiful as her inside, which if you know Wendy, is a very beautiful thing. Seeing how well she has done, I'm dying to see Reg. I hear that he is just 1 pant size than his brother Joel, and Joel is a skinny little shit.

Hey now, no need to take cracks at skinny folks! We're people too!

Is the Alyson you are referring to the one that used to have a blue streak(s) in her hair? (I think the rest of her hair color was black?)

Yep, Alyson had all black hair. She was also the host of a show in the afternoons on Shaw, if you remember that.
