I went to my first Sonic Session last Wednesday, to see Civil Twilight. It was a little disappointing to see that the Pointe West Honda Listener Lounge (as cramped as it was) was still so empty, because Civil Twilight is so awesome!! At the same time, it was satisfying to know that I am one of the music elite who manages to stay ahead of the scene.
The boys talked a bit about themselves and the band and South Africa, why they moved to the States, commented on the flatness of Edmonton, and of course played some songs! (Soldier, Perfect Stranger, and Letters from the Sky)
Then there was an autograph and photo session. I was having a bad hair day and I look like a dork.

I was at the park today when I saw something swimming towards me in the water. At first I thought it was an otter, but as it got closer, I could see it was much larger. It swam past and then I forgot about it.
A while later, I was walking back to my car and guess who I met amongst the trees... a beaver! He (or she, I don't know how to tell them apart) was so close I could have touched him, but thought better of it. If a beaver can nom nom nom through a big tree, then I wouldn’t want it nom nom nom’ing on my arm!
This beaver was nom nom nom’ing on the nice green grass.
