On Religous Fanatacism… and Breakfast

June 13, 2010

I’ve come to the conclusion that the suicide bombers that use themselves as weapons to inflict harm to their enemies are mistaken if they think that they will be greeted by virgins in heaven.

Actually…  I think the realization I am trying to relay is that they are mistaken that they are going to heaven… I have Discovered where they truly go when they die: British Columbia.  They are, in point of fact, ressurected as butterflies and sent here, doomed to repeat thier acts, with far less successful results.  I say this because I have witnessed the destruction of many of these butterflies as they try their best to accost me while in motion. I must give them credit for their fervor, and their numbers are vast… but the mass ratio is just far too great.  We are safe from their threat until they master the explosives again (2012).  Honestly, the only effect they are having might be forcing me to do… more laundry (just kidding, I don’t do laundry!)

We left this morning from Ft. Saint John having had a marvelous breakfast scramble at a local Cafe`. It wasnt so much the ingredients that made it special (although they were all locally grown, and very delcious) but more the way they were prepared.  The createor was a man by the name of Devin. Devin  is the (owner?) of Cosmic Grounds Cafe` and he was looking for a way to bring a breakfast crowd into his coffee shop to expand his buiness. The shop itself isnt small, but the service area is and there was certainly no room for more kitchen to facilitate this service. So he came up with the ingenius idea of using his cappuccino machine’s milk frother to cook the eggs and meats for his scrambles. The results are fantastic, the eggs come out light and fluffy, perfectly cooked and it’s really fast too! The whole process took about 10 mins which included chopping all the veggies and the ham, it was truely impressive. We had arrived in the shop as they were opening so he joined us for breakfast and we told him of our trip. I have to say, we only spent about 20 in the shop and in that time he was working on 5 scramble orders… so the idea seems to have worked, my helmet is off to Devin, Good luck man!

We’ve arrived in Ft Nelson, 3 days now to Alaska and the excitement is palpable.  As we get farther and farther from regular civilization the value of a rented room increases… it seems to defy physical law, i’ll have to go back and check the calculations. 

Many of the places here in town have “Northern Lights” in their name so we might get to see some auroras.  Of course, the sun  won’t be setting until 11:30 tonight, so we might have to wait a while.
