It's time again for my world famous
weekly thought. The place where I tell you everything
that is going on in my head and stuff thats happening
Back To Life, Back To Reality...
So I return back to the realism of the harsh credit
card bills and 7 day work week. The loud airplanes passing
over and the roaring subway trains nearby. I think I
really had it good when I was in the calm serene paradise
that is Bermuda. I wonder to myself, "Why did I
come back to all of this?" Well, honestly there
are a lot of things and people that I would have missed.
Not to mention the wedding of my cousin Serena
to Tony this coming June 13!! I'm in
the wedding party!! I have to be here for that!
last wedding that I was closely involved with was back
in June of 2001, when my dear longtime college buddy,
Selena got married to Samir. The wedding was held in
Toronto on Canada Day (July 1). That to me, was the
best and most emotional wedding I've ever been to, only
because it was "one-of-the-gang" getting hitched.
I felt real old and saw my youth slipping away.....
since then I have recovered and I don't think that I'll
be as traumatized this time through.
I have been travelling so much, I haven't really had
some time to state my WEEKLY THOUGHT
like I used to. Its been pretty much all "Thing's
That I'm Doing", which isn't all that bad, but
I have to make the page what it is!
where do I start? Well first off, let me say something
about the SARS/West Nile/Mad Cow thing happening in
my home country of Canada.... What is going on there!??!
I know the media is overblowing some few cases, but
still, how did Canada let so much slip through? I love
Canada too much to stay away from it. I'm also quite
positive that when I do go there this summer for Toronto's
Caribana that I won't be affected by SARS
or whatnot. The following cartoon was sent to me by
World Tour 2003 Destinations
the World Tour didn't officially begin until
I went to Greenfield, Massachusetts in early May, it
actually officially started when I was in Toronto in
February. In April, the tour passed through Central
and Southern Florida hitting cities like Orlando, Ft.
Lauderdale and Miami. Then the latest trip was down
to Bermuda where made a lot of new "cK Fans"!
So what's next? Its June and I should already be planning
the next destination, but since I'm involved in a major
wedding set in New York City, I have decided to sit
easy and invite all cK Fans to visit me here. This week,
my dear friend Selica is travelling from Bermuda on
business to NYC and I'll possibly get to meet up with
her. The following week, my friend, Suzie is coming
up from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and is going to be nearby
in Long Island for the weekend. Then the American Independence
Day Weekend, (July 3-6) my little sister, Angie is coming
up from Miami, Florida to spend time with her big bro.
Well it looks like June (and early July) is still going
to be quite adventurous!
Tokyo Be the Next Destination?
what about after June? I was definitely planning on
returning to Massachusetts again and even Connecticut.
But come late July, I'm already booked to be in Toronto
The other day I was emailed by my friend who is working
in Tokyo, Japan to come and visit her. She was telling
me that Tokyo is one of the most expensive places to
live in the world and that if I can make it there, its
well worth the trip. She was mentioning to me that a
watermelon costs $15.00 and that a mango costs $12.00!
Wow! If that's how much little items like that cost,
imagine a hotel!!??! I'm definitely considering it,
I just have to see what part of the year I can reserve
to make it there. Japan has been a long time adventure
waiting to happen for me, maybe this is the year it
can happen. Bermuda was a trip that took 5 years to
happen, and I finally suceeded this year. I hope I don't
have to wait until 2008 to make it to Japan!
you have seen it for yourself on the street, then you
will have a better idea when I say that, "The new
Nissan Maxima is one of the hypest cars out there!"
People who know me, know that I am still and will always
be a big fan of domestic cars. Regardless of how much
less in quality all the magazines write about them in
comparison to the European and Japanese cars. But this
particular car is a world class work of art in both
engine and design. I don't drive cars here in New York,
I take the subway and ride the buses - the economical
way to travel here, but if I was in a place with more
space and open road, the '04 Maxima would be one of
my options. Then of course, if I was back in
Miami, then the other Nissan would surely be my choice.
The Nissan 350Z, in convertible fashion is the ultimate
beach car! When strolling down Collins Avenue or Ocean
Drive, why do it in an SUV when you can get the ocean
breeze flowing through your hair? Nissan has really
outdone itself in the past few years bringing very appealing
and affordable products. Too bad that I can't afford
to even LOOK at one let alone drive it!!
