Little Baller

November 26th, 2018

Chantal decided to play ball in her last year.  She didn’t play last year and did Soccer and Volleyball.  They didn’t have a good team since being at DOC and this year they hit a sweet flow and got stronger and stronger as the year went along.  They won gold at a tourney as the season was coming to the crunch.  In LOSSA they won gold and they represented the region at OFSSA in London, Ontario.

I was super excited and pulled out the old songs mixed in with what they listen to and made a little mixtape.  I was super nervous for OFSSA since there would be some super strong teams.  I was at work and following on Twitter and YouTube which they had some difficulty streaming the games.

 

First game they came out and won 67-62 in a game that they took the lead by 10ish points and the other team chipped in and made it close at the end.  The next day they won again and they didn’t play that good and it was basically a even game at the end of each quarter.

 

 

In the third game which I could watch on YouTube at work… they got smoked by Mother Theresa who won OFSSA the year before.  The press killed them…. but what a great memory going to OFSSA to compete at a chance to go far into the Tourney.  Smiley is below with Chantal who was born on the same night at the same hospital.  I’m happy that they played together.  They had a banquet to start of the tourney and the two shots are from the festivities.

Making Love Through The Dance

November 26th, 2018

This dance is all about the embrace.  The Argentine Tango.  Stunning.  I fell in love with the song on the second time watching it.  I watched the video 5 times in the night and downloaded the song from OK GO.  It’s called Skycrapers.

It’s so sexy.

 

moments i love:

0:16 – the embrace + how she moves her arm around his back.

0:27 – sexy as hell.  legs.  dress.  bottom.

1:34 – how he spins her and walks in the circle to spin her.

1:44 – how she wraps her one leg between his

1:55 – this dress.  the pleats.  the dress.

2:57 – and then this dress.  the sides.  the back.  the split down the side.

3:12 – her arms up and back down behind him.  love the way she moves.

what’s wrong with me.  i need to get out more.  i also need to learn how to dance.

watching them walk backwards together is the closest thing to making love when dancing when you find someone with the perfect rhythm.

Love Stories | Chapter One: Bo

November 23rd, 2018

1-tumblr_mtxzkdrOTf1qztiu9o1_500

The LoveStories project was initiated by Iman Whitfield (graduate project from Willem de Kooning), and created by Caroline Koning. After researching the online community of the LoveStories brand, this video series came to its existence. The video gives insight into a loving relationship from the point of view of ‘the boyfriend’. Little details, stupid things, and charming elements are the things why he’s in love with her, even when that means eating kebab, walking into metro gates, and acting out the same film scene every single day.

iThemba School, Cape Town South Africa

November 20th, 2018

At Lufthansa where I work we support iThemba School that is located in Cape Town, South Africa.  One of our offices is located in Cape Town.  Most of our staff does payroll deduction to support the school.  This year, one of my colleagues asked if I wanted to support the shoebox program.  So on behalf of me and my two kids we did so.  Some other people in my training class did so too and we did four of them.  These are the kids at the school that we helped.  Another colleagues had the chance to visit the school to help when she was in Cape Town working for a while.

a friend at work discovered ziggy from my early morning playlists.  he is from the land down-under and this was his first trip to north america on tour.  we was going to play at the drake but due to selling out they moved it to adelaide hall which i never knew existed.  we went downtown and hit queen west all the way to ossington ave and up oss to dundas and back towards the city…  along the way we hit kensignton market which was having it’s jazz festival so we had dinner and drinks at the supermarket which was nice and walked to adelaide to the venue for the concert.  such a warm day.  the watch said we walked over 20km.  cara from work is heading out west for school… so it would be nice to fly out to visit.

ziggy is a great little artist and he was so good.  the venue was packed and hot inside but it was such a fun concert.
