Where I stayed

Flag of Canada  , Northwest Territories,
Wednesday, February 23, 2011

I guess I didn't catch on fast enough, so my move to Inuvik has been delayed for another week.

The amount of new things I have to learn is insanity.

Today though, I drove on the ice road for the first time. Across a giant lake from Yellowknife to Dettah.

There was a meeting about the latest "devolution" processes in NWT.

The territories are slowly being turned into pseudo-provinces, and usually the aboriginals are opposed.

A bunch of them were calling for the aboriginal MLAs in the cabinet to resign today.

So, my brain exploded over that one.

Then, I wrote it when I got back and didn't have time to do the other 10,000 things I'm supposed to do today. But really, I think they just assign too many things so that you do more than you were planning on doing in the first place. Most people work late and hand their stories in after deadline, I am finding. Not as late as I have been handing in mine... but whatever.

Tonight, I am going once again to the Black Knight, but this time, I don't have to watch Keith scarf down yet another hamburger and beer, because I am actually hungry this time.

It's wing night and I'm getting the Yukon Gold and pineapple curry flavours with a Guinness!

Rodney and his roommate Laurence met me at the restaurant and we had our wings. The waitress was a dummy.

I forgot my long johns, so the walk home was ridiculously cold. The one thing that is awesome about the cold is that there is no slush. Dry boots = warm, happy feet.

The snow crunches under your boots with every step. That also makes for happy ears.
