My First Blog

Ok folks, my name is Neal Caminsky and I'm the founder of Red Dream Studios, a website/graphic design/multimedia/marketing company based in Montreal. We've been around since 2001 and are based in Montreal -- which right now is frigid.

Not sure what possessed me to Blog, but since everyone's doing it, might as well jump on the bandwagon...

Today started off horribly. Makes me want to wish I'd stood in bed. Honestly though, is that the right expression? Why would you want to stand in your bed? Normally, you sleep there. In any case, keep in mind the frigidness of Montreal I mentioned before. Ok, it's like -30 degrees outside, right? And I'm at the Bank, which is about 1.5 km away from my house. When I'm finished my business, I notice that to my dismay, the remote control car starter thingy I have suddenly stops working, and the alarm on my car is activated! I'm frantically trying to disarm the alarm, so I can get into my warm car and drive to work. But no... No matter what I tried, the remote just died! I even tried to get into my car using the key and start her up, but of course, now since the car alarm is blasting all over the place, the car's kill switch has engaged.


Now I know I have a backup remote control all the way at home so I can actually disarm my car and drive away. But it's so far away...

So in the freezing cold, I run/walk/run/walk all the way home, snot is dripping from my nose, sweat streaming down my face, and spiddle flying out of my mouth as I pant incessantly. It took me about 15 minutes to get there. Not bad considering it's usually about a 30 minute walk.
