Canstruction 2012

While walking around Vancouver downtown, I spotted an eagle inside of the HSBC building.  That got me curious enough to get into that building... and guess what..? Canstruction 2012 is happening... So I took some pictures :D

I'm pretty sure it's humping

By the way, this is apparently an international contest... (that I didn't know)

Fixing Trigger Finger?

Since I got my pinkie injury while playing basketball 15 years ago, I have had a trigger finger, a symptom that prevents you finger to bend smoothly: Your finger will be locked somewhere in the middle, and you have to put more force to make it to snap-bend. Yuck....

This was the excuse, I have been making for my poor guitar play... also it's been bugging me recently, especially when I play the piano... So today.. I talked to my doctor... yeah why not.. we Canadians don't pay a dime for seeing a doctor or getting this type of things fixed.

He suggested me to take 3~4 pills of Magnesium Citrate right before the bedtime for a month.  According to him, this might fix the problem, or make it better. If it does, I'll have to take this forever.  If not, that's when we can discuss about the surgical way... (which I was expecting to begin with, I guess....)

Okay, here we go... Let's see if it works. If it does, I'll become the best guitarist in history :P

p.s. Oh, by the way, one side effect of this pills:  DIARRHEA!
