serious stuff

hey you guys, let's talk. i really miss my family and friends! i was trying to think of ways to avoid talking about this on my blog because i know you'll all cry and cry when you picture us up here shivering and pouting because we miss our people but i wanted to be honest. FULL disclosure. i pick my nose! okay wait, i'll dial it back on the disclosure.

we do really like it up here, but it feels lonely. time has been crawling by in a way that affects my morale a little bit. i was thinking of making a list of all of the things i miss but then i realized that if i had done that i probably would have finished the list off by marching to the airport and flying home. just kidding! anyway, i decided to make a list of the things that i like about iqaluit. here it is, for your viewing pleasure:

- the view
- our apartment
- living beside the ocean
- friendly people
- inuktitut
- all of the cute kids everywhere
- ??

okay i'll work on the list. tomorrow we're going to do some exploring and we'll take lots of pictures. then i'll do lots of creepy things because it's halloweeeeeeeen!

  3. I miss you too, lovely.

    I know you picked your nose from a selection I presented you with at birth. You were wise to pick a little one.

    Are you going trick or treating tonight?

    Happy empty hotdog, and I hope you meet some nice people there!

    XOXO

  4. #1 - Nose picking - What about the brain damage you warned me about?

    #2 - Keep focusing on your list, it will make things more (polar)bearable.

    I'll call you this week! Miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I've got something for your list; Inuit Throat Singing! I saw it on the T.V. It's very cool. Now all you have to do is convince a local to sing for you every day. :) Miss you guys!
