Chris was having a tough game last night, got fouled a few times, was on the verge of losing his cool and so he walked away from the game for a bit to cool off. I didn’t pay much attention to it, ’cause that happens from time to time, but at the end of the game he produces a hot pizza, and offered everyone a slice.

We were out on a field playing Ultimate, and kind of wondered where it came from, so we asked.

“Geoff always told me that when you’re having a bad game”, says Chris, “you need to calm down and focus on doing what you do best.”

“So I ordered a pizza.”

It was awesome.

    Yeah me!

    (And Chris is, of course, the man.)

    Clearly, the man who gets pizza has many friends.

    And the man who eats pizza with the man who got pizza is one cool dude.

    This may end up being the only good model towards world peace.

    Mmm. Pizza. I think my pizza ordering skills are about to go international. Tonight is my first stop at Pizza Verche.

    This is now one of my favourite Chris stories.

    Tonight I was watching tv. I started watching old re-runs of “Married……with children”. I noticed interesting 3 quarter views of Al Bundy, Ed O’Neil- and decided to look him up online to find images of him. And when I did, I then found pictures of Ted Mcginley- Odd he is- as though his smile was taped on all his life. Then I went back through my search, taping the back button to the beginning. See, the first thing I typed in was, “Anything is Known.” I made that quote. And nothing came up for it. So then I looked through images- and I found a blog. Well, your blarg.
    I’ve read a bit of it. And its excellent.
    In my mind I’m thinking your a cross between, Ewan McGregor and the singer from the band, Wire. Wire’s best album is, Chairs Missing. Check it out. In my mind as well, reading what you type is movie’esk for me or like reading a novel. I’m slowing piecing together the characters and shaping the personalities. Plus the writing is excellent. Its mystery for me. And thats good.

    I might be a cross between Ewan McGregor and Colin Newman on the inside, but on the outside, I’m more of a combination of Al Bundy and, say, Gimli.
