Last night, Jer, Linds, and I went skating for the first time this year. The canal isn't open yet so we went to Brewer Park and didn't stay out very long. I realised that my skates very very very much needed sharpening again this year. I always forget that you have to do it every year because I don't get my snowboard done every year and it is fine. Today I took Jer and mine skates into the Home Hardware in the Glebe (for those of you in Ottawa) and it was only $5 for a pair, which is really good. Last year I had to get it done in New York City and it was something crazy like $20 US. The year before I had got it done at Carleton's Ice House and I think it was $15, so Glebe Hardware is a good deal!
Now I have the Ice Skating Song in my head....Ice skating is nice skating, but here's some advice about ice skating, never skate where the ice is thin, thin ice can crack and you'll fall right in, and come out with icicles under your chin, if you skate where the ice is thin....I don't really know where that song is from. Maybe it is from Girl Guides or school when I was little, I can't really remember.
