Don't know my own strength.

It's funny how we get used to imperfect things when they decay slowly enough. Unit it finally breaks and you replace it.
I had to replace the wheels on my shower door today. I hadn't noticed how much harder they were to open and close, until I took a shower with the new wheels. Almost pushed the door into the next room.

Decline always seems to come slowly, doesn't it?

Either that or you don't know your own strength :)

I love the quote in your leaderboard pic (Nice Granada, too!). Tom Cochrane has long been a huge influence, one of Canada's best-ever songwriters and an inspiration to an entire generation of writers. That he started out as a journalist is the icing on the cake.

At least that's what I THOUGHT it was until one day I went to Toronto for an interview on a morning show. As the production assistant was setting up my wireless mic, I noticed that it had been quite thoroughly mashed, with the metallic frame of the little microphone now flattened beyond recognition and barely able to clip to my lapel.

I joked about the person who had used it before me, and how they should send that person a bill. She smiled at me, and said it was Tom Cochrane, and he accidentally stepped on it after he got off-air.

Best brush with fame I've ever had. Wish I could have met him, though!
