Sold, to the lady in the back.
by Nic Olson
I’ve been home for a few days now, and things are swell.
Some things I missed from home:
-doorknobs. they seriously don’t have these in India. I know, how the heck does that work? But somehow it does.
-internet and electricity.
-friends and the fam. but that is a given.
-tacos.. crap, those are good.
-Hockey. i can’t express that one with words, only a sound that goes like this, ‘Ahhhhoohhhhhhman…ahhhyeahbaby.’
Some things I miss from India:
-sleep. changing sleep schedules is awful. i feel like i was run over by a steamroller and the peed on by a cat with West Nile virus.
-rice. although there is rice in Canada, i know it will never be the same.
-that fact that it was not freezing cold Sasky
Some things I’m excited for:
-Pirates 3. i’m predicting an epic classic.
-The OC season 4 on dvd.. ohhh yeah.
Now if I only knew what I was doing in two weeks, or even in two days. I figured I’d start a bidding war for my summer destination. Yk, R-dot, Cowtown.. Where should I go? If you want me to come to your city, or avoid your city, let me know, it may help in the decision making process. Let the bidding war begin. I hear a wolverine infested cottage, do I hear a ‘live at home for free all summer’? Going once, going twice…
if i was a cat with west nile, id pee on you.i know how you feel.
i’ll give you 100 dollars if you come hang out with me.
“that old highway’s a callin'” ….the really far north highway.
i’d say definitely a wolverine infested cottage. and we created a TACO pizza that will probably be a regular at pizza night from now on. and it is good. really good.
im pretty sure you should come here. people ask me all the time. all sorts of people. if you are coming. if you come here, we can go to bruno’s. ill buy.miss you! come north.
coming here you could hangout with probably the coolest people ever. you cant do that in regina, you could win city champs for tennis, you cant do that in regina, you can live at the ashby’s house. you cant do that in regina,you can get anywhere by walking or driving within about 5 minutes here, you cant in regina, you can go longboarding with me, you cant do that in regina,you can eat cindy’s cookies, you cant do that in regina,yup you can pretty much do anything if you come here.. and there you cant do anything fun!so i’d say. COME HERE!
Nic.come here. please. you said you’d teach me how to play tennis. so do it. i’ll pay you with chocolate chip banana muffins. i am good at making them. so it’ll be a good trade. tennis for chocolate chip banana muffins.so do it. COME. AND you said you’d teach kaleigh how to play. so lets go boy. you got some tennis to teach. yaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
Come here NicDoug
We can go fishing and I will make you shore lunch.I will send you a picture of funny things that happen in Yellowknife…lovecody
p.s. at the co-op the other day i saw a lady with a big cart and the whole thing was full of bottles of orangina… that’s not even a lie or an exaggeration. i promise. if that doesn’t convince you to move here i dont know what will…
even though I can offer free food (rice and dahl for breakfast), free room, car and gas, I can not single handedly compete with the excitement factor of Melissa, Dayna, Cody, Brianne, Doug, Kaleigh, Lindsay, Kurtis, Arlen, Joel,Cindy. So I guess I’ll have to get used to the fact Nic will likely be going to YK for the summer. Have a good summer!
apparently some people thought I didn’t try hard enough to convince Nic to stay in Regina. Well Brianne, I can say for sure I beat all Doug’s reasons. But here are a few responses to the above comments:Dayna- you can actually go somewhere here for a drive to get out of Regina and have little towns to visit along the trip, in YK you are the end of the road!Melissa- he can go to the Ice House for IceBergs and I’ll buy!Brianne- he could have Friday night Taco night (can’t compete with Cindy’s pizza), and I know they sell that orangania at Superstore(and it is likely cheaper)Cody- I also can’t compete with Cody’s shore lunch. I hear it is awesome and wouldn’t mind trying that myself.Kaleigh- cool people here, what about Grandpa and Grandma Straker, Rick and Carolyn and the boys, Tori, Sharon, Kris, Jeremy, not to mention WilfTennis- he could play against the YK City champ down here!I don’t plan to compete with anyone’s cooking comments, but I love to cook for people who love to eat(and that would be Nic), he can have rice and dahl for breakfast, and India food as often as he would like itAnyways, there’s a few reasons Regina might be a good place to stay for the summer. We would love to have you stay Nic, but no pressure!
Did you get my email Nic? Are you coming? It would great to have someone other than Kurtis to play tennis against. Actually it’s been too cold to play against him, but he says he sucks. I just gave a sweet reference for Brianne, all sorts of lies and half truths and she’s going to make $33/hour. I pretty much guarantee you can make that much at Tim Horton’s if you come for the summer… how’s that for a reason?Tim
Oh Nic!So many reasons to come north!Where do I begin, really do come, we miss you and you will probably be in Regina all winter. Just think! many weekends at the cabin. I think I just might move there. Pizza nights on friday, and like Brianne said, new pizza – TACO! which means that thursday is now mexican night! Kurtis and Joel have now taken up tennis which means good times and good laughs, we may all have to take up the game, Doug and I played some in our youth but I am sure I would have to learn all over again. Drive way basketball, Scott is all over that, basketball with a bunch of hockey players – that is always entertaining – and pretty much full contact! Oh yah, new water toy for the yard, it has a slide into a pool, a ring throw, and a basketball hoop, you could do it all but the slide, really Nic you are to big, but if you come we will get another slip and slide, Melissa really wants to race you!!!Yah another reason to come, your very cool sister is here and hangs out at my house lots, and plays games with us, it is all good.Also you should send a resume to Canadian North, fax to 403-717-1532, we think it is the same job that Arlen had last year, it closes on May 28th. In the subject line but Customer Service Cargo Agent, Yellowknife.You can go to http://www.canadiannorth.com and click on the Careers section to see more about the job. If you want more info on jobs email me and I can send you some more info from the paper.Hope to see you in a few weeks. You could also fax your resume here and Brianne or I could fax some out from my office. She is teaching today at Daynas school, I am sure she will have some good stories.Talk to you laterCindy
nic, if you work at canadian north your parents could fly up for quite cheap. wouldn’t that be nice? and your mom did much better this time around. really though it doesnt take a comment on the comuter to know that your mom would take great care of you and that she would have lots of fun with you in regina. but we would all have more fun if you came and worked at canadian north and flew them up for a visit. i would race wilf on the slip and slide.
even if you go, you win the city tennis tournament. im coming up to defend it…and there is no way youd get by me. ask wilf or jon.jerms
you wont win. thats what it should say. i missed a word.
who knew that nic was this popular. definetely to cool to for cow town.later.T
you did hear me offer 100 bucks up there hey? im pretty sure that buys more than a yk tennis title.
