I’m going to have to set up some kind of a script to deal with this page.
That’ll take a while, my Perl skills not being the kind of thing you
spell with a ‘z’, but I think it’ll be worth the effort.
It was my great privilege this weekend to be awarded the coveted Most
Valuable Defensive Player award for our summer Ultimate team, though
Geoff’s absence was,
I think, a contributing factor. I’m proud of my foot speed, as well as

without actually having to leave the ground, he could certainly
have given me some competition.
More news to come, but for the moment there are a slew of new
pictures from Antoine and
Alethea’s wedding up on the site, replete with a dignified,
romantic goodness that is going to result in my apologizing to
Shaver for abusing his bandwidth and everyone else for the terrible
photographs that Advantix film produces under anything but ideal
conditions. Advantix does take some neat-o panorama pictures (see

I’m on my way to try out for Carleton’s Ultimate team, which should be
UPDATE: Somewhat bittersweet; I made the team, but the team isn’t going

not realistic to send less than a dozen guys to Winnipeg for University
Nats. Especially at five hundred dollars a head. We’re hoping
to kick every ass east of the prairies at Markham regionals, though, and
thereby gain funding for next year.
