I received this e-mail today. It told me that I could buy my drugs from Canada for 70% Off of what I normally pay. WOO HOO ! ! ! Except for one thing. I LIVE IN CANADA ! ! ! ! I am getting sick and tired of receiving spam for offers from FREE IPOD and Mac Mini's to a better mortgage rate and on the bottom of EVERY E-Mail it says "Offer good for "U. S. Residence only". If this offer is good for U. S. residence only then why the hell are you e-mailing this crap to me.

It's bad enough that I'm getting spam from "another country" but after I waste my time with it, to discover that I couldn't use this service even if I wanted to is really annoying. It's like TIVO not being available in Canada. We need to use PVR's from our "Cable or Satellite provider" (Good thing I have one, thank you Expressvu).

One thing I like about being Canadian is how prices seem to be higher for everything. Now I do understand issues with the exchange rate but the Canadian dollar has gained in value lately, (now hovering in the mid/low 80 cent range) but items, like electronic products have not gone down in price from when the dollar was in the low 70 cent mark. It's coming to the point that it would be cheaper for me to go across the border and buy it myself.

Then again Canadian internet pharmacies seem to be doing well right now with people from across the border buy our "cheaper" drugs, even Homer was doing it. One thing I found funny was that some people think that the drugs aren't safe, like were making them in our "Igloos" or something, when in fact they come from the U. S. The reason that they are cheaper up here is simple, PRICE CONTROL. The Canadian government regulates how much a drug company can charge for its product so that consumers cannot get gouged.

Though I should be grateful for some things, like movies being released in Canada at the same time as the U. S. I hear that they tend to come out later in other parts of the world. The same thing with music CD's, videogames and software. Apparently every other industry considers Canada to be the same market as the U. S. (except they have to slap a bilingual label on whatever they try to sell up here, though I usually throw away the "French" instructions.

Now that I think about it, the Canadian government is just as much at fault in allowing me to be marginized. It's the CRTC fault that I cannot get HBO, and a whole load of U. S. cable TV services. In fact, they made it "illegal" for me to own a U. S. satellite receiver. They also have a firm hold on what channels I can watch. Only recently has Fox News been available in Canada (but not through Expressvu yet). I look forward to the day in the near future when I will get my TV through my IP and the CRTC will have NO CONTROL over what I watch.

Well I can accept everything else right now but for now, STOP SPAMING ME ABOUT THE FREE IPOD.

I don't want to touch it but I have to. I hope its clean.

Oh sure now something like this ends up in my lap. Just great. I can picture Vics grining while I write up this dildo thing, Anyway it was passed to me and now its my turn to pass it on

1. Have you ever used toys or other things during sex?

I'm a big fan of chocolate sauce grin

2. Would you consider using dildos or other sexual toys in the future?

I would consider anything that would give the woman I'm with "Pleasure"

3. What is your kinkiest fantasy you have yet to realize?

Good question, I'm more into greed than lust but a kinky fantasy would be a zero G threesome.

4. Who gave you this dildo?

Vics, I think she's enjoying the fact I'm squirming through all this.

5. Who are the ones to receive this dildo from you?

LdyPayne but I doubt it that she will do it, She's extremely stuborn when it comes to anything like this.

Dumb Ass or Smart Ass, I can't decide

I recently heard about this guy who rented out his forehead for advertising space on Ebay. I cannot find the words to describe my feeling on this so I’m going to simply say WTF???

First of all, this guy isn’t a great catch to begin with. He actually looks dorky if you ask me. Secondly, he now has to walk around with the logo on his forehead for a month. A WHOLE MONTH with the words SNORE STOP on your forehead.

Now that I think about it, it could have been a lot worse. What if the highest bid was for Trojans or Tampax.? Sure this guy would have around for a month with these words on his head. Personally I wish I were rich so I could have placed a bid and forced him to wear the word Diarrhea or something like that. Actually he was smart in the fact that he did say that it had to be tasteful so there went the idea for “I’m a dumb ass”.

Now some people are saying “This guy is a smart entrepreneur” well I think he’s no better than a WHORE. He’s selling his body so as far as I’m concerned, he’s no better than a streetwalker.

Then I was wondering how much did he get for doing this and its $37,375. Ok, now I’m thinking, I wonder how much Google or Pepsi will pay me for putting their logos on my head. Then again, I still never got anything from Pepsi for this blog. Then again, nearly $40K to do that?

Our topic is topics eh

I've chatted with some friends recently. People I know in real life who have started blogging after reading mine for awhile and I'm starting to notice something. These people cannot think of a thing to write about so their blog just sits idle with no one visiting it. In fact one blog has a post about not knowing what to blog about.

Maybe it's just me but I usually can come up with something. I look through a newspaper or a news site to get an idea. Sometimes it's a TV show or another blog (That pic of Vics in the straightjacket is just begging to be written about).

While a blog is a way to write about yourself or your experiences, there is no reason to limit yourself to talking about what you experienced that day. People can choose to reveal something about themselves, like how I admit to being a fanboy geek but I'm also so much more.

We as individuals have so many sides to ourselves and we can turn to any one of those sides in order to come up with anything to talk about. Here's another secret. I HATE BIG MACS When I go to MacDonalds, I never order the things. The special sauce makes them too sweet and I want my hamburger to taste burgery (is that a word? ) and not sweet.

I know of people with multiple blogs (including me) and they save different topics for different blogs but if you only have one blog then go nuts. Write about politics, your last meal, describe the noise your toilet makes when you flush it. ANYTHING.

I remember on SCTV, when they had the GREAT WHITE NORTH skit on, some of the topics the Mackenzie brothers were bad but at least they had something. I remember when their topic was snow chains and Doug just dropped some snow chains on the table and said "There they are eh". It was a beauty topic.

As you may or may not have figured out by now, this post is meant for these people. Oh and to anyone else to reads this, can you come up with some ideas to motivate these new bloggers, I'd really appreciate it.

I was really expecting more from you Google.

Earlier today I read something about a new Google service and I went. "YEAH, let check it out". As some of you may know, I'm a big fan of everything Google does. Right down to the Google Deskbar, and every other thing Google has. I remember saying that I have "PROPERTY OF GOOGLE" tattooed on my ass, but this new Google search is actually lame.

This "video search" goes through recent closed captions of television programs and I thought, Cool. I can now download transcripts of TV shows, but unfortunately this thing blows. (Sorry Google). At the very least I want an option that will allow me to read the transcript of an entire show instead of little snippets. I don't even care about the lack of video, (though someone else might). I just get 5 sets of quotes during the program I selected and Google doesn't always select what you need. In fact for a search about "Thunderbirds", I found an episode of Ebert and Roeper and clicked on that. The next page had 5 quotes but one of the quotes had a picture of a "Lean Pockets" commercial and the text was about buying Birthday cards. What the… I'm glad this is still in Beta Google because in its current form, its crap.

Now what I wanted was the ability to download an entire transcript of a TV show so I could enjoy it. I would love to download an episode of "Live with Regis and Kelly", print out the transcripts and reenact the show. Yeah, I could get a friend and we could be Regis and Kelly. Oh better yet, I could download Oprah transcripts and my friends and I could take turns at being Oprah. Personally I would be reenacting the nightly Letterman rant when he gets to the desk.

This is a nice first attempt Google, but it needs work. Its too bad because I really wanted to pretend that I'm Kelly Ripa . . David Letterman and do the monologue and introduce the guests. It would be fun. I could become David Letterman but noo… instead we get this failed attempt. This is not like you Google. I didn't know that you knew how to make crap. Well even the mighty fail sometimes. I might have to get that tattoo removed if this keeps up.

I dream like a nutjob

Last night I dreamt that Michael Keaton was at my place and we were discussing Batman. I don’t know exactly what about Batman we were talking about but I do know it was about Batman. Then the weird part happens. An enraged Adam West comes into my apartment screaming at us and that’s all I remember.

I don’t know what the deal is with my weird dreams but I think it has something to do with how I look at the world. I’m always trying to look at things are a different perspective (I guess) and maybe that’s why I dreamt that I was hanging out with Michael Keaton. Well it could have been worse; at least we were dressed

There was the time I dreamt that I was playing cards with Barry Manilow. I still don’t know what that’s supposed to mean. Does anybody out there know how to interpret dream? Then again, do I really want to know what they mean anyway? I usually forget my dreams so I don’t know what they are. I say this because were suppose to dream every night.

There are some dreams that I’ve had once or twice. Like the being naked at school dream (why do we all have that dream), though every once in a while I’ll dream that I’m not wearing pants. I’m not sure why I have that dream either.

What I want to know is why can’t I dream what I want to dream. Why can’t I dream that I’m in a tropical paradise with a loved starved Angelina Jolie and Kristen Dunst? No, instead I dream of Michael Keaton and Adam West. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME?

I do know that I am a creative person and that I can come out with some weird stuff. Then again, maybe I don’t dream of women because sometimes, I lack self-confidence when it comes to “the ladies”. Perhaps I do dream of being in a threesome with Angelina and Kristen and don’t remember it. Grrr, that’s my luck.

Well as long as I don’t dream about work, then I will be fine (I did that once and I was extremely stresses out at the time).

Who knows, maybe tonight I’ll dream that I’m playing checkers with Simon Cowell or something. (Please let it be Paula Abdul instead)

Peeping is overrated

There's a show that I watched every weekday (actually I TIVO it). It's called Call for Help (though it's called CFH 2.0 by the tech set). It's a program that talks about technology and helps callers with their computer and technology related problems. I watch every episode and there is a good following for the show in Canada as well as the U. S. (Even though people have to download the episodes because the show isn't available down there, but I hear it will soon be aired in Australia (YAA you people are in for a treat).

Anyway this morning I was surfing and I was reading one of the co-hosts blog Amber MacArthur (she's the web site guru) and I found a link to a web cam of the studio where they shoot the show so I followed the link and low and behold I could see the set. There were people walking around and the was a message on the website saying that they were shooting their 100 episode that day.

I watched and thought, mmm maybe I can watch a show being shot so I sat back and waited, and waited AND WAITED. Anyway things were occurring before the hosts appeared and I really wanted to see them, but I did see some other interesting things.

There was this guy walking around dressed like a city transit driver. At first I thought it was the host Leo Laporte but I quickly dismissed it because Leo has enough sense not to dress that bad. I've come to the conclusion that he was a producer or director.

Then there was this guy who looked like a teenager with a baseball hat on. He walked around in those oversized pants that some people wear and he kept his hands in his pocket. I don't know who the hell he was but he didn't seem to do much.

There was this other guy dress in navy blue (from head to toe) and I was wondering if he was a ballet dancer or a mine. It was actually creepy. I thought he was going to do the "wall" at any moment.

I had been watching for about 20 minutes and I was starting to get bored at this point. Where the heck were the hosts I thought and then I was rewarded. First I saw Amber walk out and come right by the web cam with some other person. They were putting a little Australian flag up and then things got strange.

Someone then picked the web cam up and started to clean all around it and all I saw for 2 minutes was some guy's gut. WOO HOO, a riveting webcast.

Then Andy (another co host) showed up but this time I recognized him right away. I watched him walk around and do some stuff at his demo area. At this point I had been watching for 40 minutes and still NO LEO.

Then this cute woman with long purple hair came out and I staired at her for a bit, as she spoke to some of the people, including Andy and Amber. This was at the 45 minute mark.

Finally I was rewarded for my patience, when Leo finally appeared. He was also talking with the purple haired girl and then the bus driver guy came out, and I once again decided that he was the director or producer.

Now at about 55 minutes into watching this "webcast" I saw the ballet guy come back and realized that he was a camera operator and they soon started taping a show.

I stopped watching after an hour and some thoughts came to my head, like. What's is the deal with that kid. What's the deal with the clothes all the crew people were wearing and finally. Was my life so boring today that I could spend an hour watching people walk around and cleaning a studio set. Maybe I'll watch tomorrow.

Oh here's the link to the webcam, they're shooting tomorrow from 10:00am to 6:00pm EST.

Is it me or has Blog Explosion become overrated?

What the hell is happening to Blog Explosion? I use to enjoy looking at the blogs, even the "bad" ones (like I have a right to judge a bad blog Mr. Pepsi logo) but at least they had something interesting to say. Now some of these blogs are turning in boring lectures or infomercials.

First of all, who cares about the difference between Multi Level Marketing vs Network Marketing? I read that and I think, "What the hell are you trying to sell me". I also saw this blog that was selling "Buzz Lightyear" bed covers. At first I thought the blogger was talking about how they decorated their child's room but then I saw the "add to basket" button. Then I thought. WHAT THE F…. . What happened to all the smutty blogs I used to find? Where is Pussy Talk?

Is it just me or has Blog Explosion become "last year"? Well since I only joined last year, maybe it is. I just want something interesting to read and I keep finding crap though I'm still finding gems like the lesbian (that word always brings a smile to my face) writer talking about Fox editing an episode of the Family guy for fear of being fined by the FCC. Now this is something interesting to read about and whatever happened to "Everybody Poops"?

Maybe it's because I've bookmarked most of the good ones already. It seems that most of everything that I find lately is boring. Click; that's crap. Click; that's interesting. Click, a fucking Web Hosting Ad. Those are the worse in my opinion. I'm looking for a blog to read and then BAM! ! I'm stuck for 30 seconds (or so they think) as this web ad is staring me in the face about blog designs and hosting. (I'm talking to you, Web Diva's) Well guess what. I just click on the number on top anyway. SCREW THE CREDITS. Oh and if I see that Entrepreneur's smug face one more time. I'm going to barf. OH AND STOP BEGGING FOR CHANGE ONLINE. That is so 4 years ago.

Oh one other thing. If I read another blog where some guy is writing how you can improve your blog, I'll ring their friggin neck. If this person is such an expert, then why the hell does their blog look like manufactured dog poop? A blog represents a person and if I want to slap a clock showing the time in Calgary and add a weather button for my home city as well, then I'm going to do it JACKASS! ! ! While the Philippine gay guy's blog posts give me the creeps sometimes, it comes from the heart and I applaud him for it. Its all about him, pictures of hand bags and all.

Now I should come clean on one thing or two. I do indeed have some "Amazon stuff" for sale and I do have a little banner for Zip. ca (I swear by them) however, you have to scroll down to see them and to be honest, I don't care if you click on them or not. It would be nice if you did but I'm not going to ask you to do so. The ads actually tell you a bit about myself. I'm playing Jak III (Actually I finished it and I'm on GTA San Andres) and The Sims 2. Other than that, who cares?

So I signed up with BlogClick and I'll see how that goes.

Dammit, someone is trying to get me healthy.

As most gamers are aware of, there are games like Dance Dance Revolution which require you to move with the beat and step on the right step at the right time. Now this game has become highly addictive to some and very popular to gamers all over the world. Now things are going from bad to worse.

Today I saw a game called Yourself! Fitness. This is an exercise game. I kid you not. You put this game in your X Box and input your information into the game and it will put you on a program to get you lean and fit. I swear I'm not making this up.

You have a virtual trainer that puts you through a workout a few times of week. They put you through a program that will make you healthier. There's even a warning at the beginning of the game which tells you that if your feeling lightheaded or something like that, to stop playing and wait until your feeling better before continuing.

Now initially I scoffed at this idea. I mean really. Why the hell would I buy a work out video game when I could rent a DVD or go to the gym? Then I thought about going to the gym. There is nothing more intimidating than a fat guy going into a gym for the first time and seeing lean healthy people all around you. You feel so inadequate when you want in and you never want to feel that way again and end up never coming back.

The DVD on the other hand is something that you can do privately but it's the same thing over and over again, with the game, it will change your routine.

Right now this game is only available for the X-Box but it's suppose to be released for the Playstation 2 in February. Now I don't have an X-box but I do have a Playstation. MMM Maybe I can get a used copy in April or something. People are bound to return this thing after a few weeks of not playing it or better, yet, watching the virtual trainer work out while you sit on the couch eating ice cream. I guess, just like everything else, its all about the honor system.

Who's your Mommy?

Normally I do all my running around on the weekend since I don't have time to do it on the weekdays but since I'm taking the week off, I decided that some of the stuff I need to do can wait.

I was over at Costco this afternoon and it was a totally different place. I was shocked to see that the place wasn't swamped with people like on Saturday's or Sunday's. I could even move my cart down the aisle without someone bashing their cart into me but some things remained the same. Like some fat woman getting the last free sample of whatever because the people in front of me wouldn't move their asses.

Though today I did learned something that absolutely shocked me. I kept hearing this word over and over again and then it dawned on me. All the adults in Costco were named "Mommy". It was strange; every where I went, there was someone saying "mommy" and an adult woman would answer. I was in the warehouse for about a half hour and in every section, all I heard was "Mommy".

I went to the optical department to order some contact lenses (mine have a special curve so they have to order them) and I heard "Mommy, Mommy" or "Mommy can I"

I was in the DVD section and I heard "Mommy" and "Mommy can I have this…"

I went by the videogames and I hear someone crying "Mommy, I want this…"

I think your getting my point. Now I'm not a parent, (thank god, or I'd be in Jail right now for stringing the little munchkins up) but I wonder at what point do you loose your name and become "Mommy" or "Daddy". Do you have to go to get your license chained to "Daddy Restoule"? Does your identity disappear and you simply become Mommy or Daddy?

Now some people are probably thinking, "that is the joy of parenthood" but I've seen the joys and I want no part of it. When I was a child, my mom (or "Mommy") said to me "When you grow up, I hope that your kids are as bad as you". I'm sure most of us have heard that once or twice in our childhood but I know something that you don't. THAT CURSE WORKS. It really does, I can't remember how many times I've visited friends who are parents and I see "the curse" in action. They run around and cry and do stuff that would drive the normal person insane. On top of that, their senses become numb.

How many times have you watched a parent change a baby's diaper and act like their doing paperwork, while you have to cover you nose and mouth for fear of vomiting from the smell. Oh and WHY IS IT GREEN ? ? ? ? ? STOP FEEDING THAT KID GRASS.

Anyway, these children are running around like they're on crack and then it gets worse. The grandparents show up and say "Here grandkids have some sugar" and they feed them SPEED, and head back home, leaving you to peel these children off the ceiling. All the time, they are saying "Mommy" over and over again, or they're crying.

Anyway, I'm proud to say that my name isn't Daddy and I hope it never does because I want the freedom to enjoy life and I don't think I'm ready for a mini van or to change my name. I'll just be like that other guy I saw at Costco who bought 20 boxes of mini pizza's (he's my hero).

Oh sidenote. Its NICE OUT AGAIN. YAHHH

I'm free from my job, well at least for the week anyway

Well it's Saturday and I'm away from work. I have all of next week to do some serious job hunting, cleaning, and whatever I can think of that really needs to be done. Things to do are coming to me slowly but they are streaming into my mind. What have I done today?

Well I changed the template for the geek blog (again). Now maybe I'll actually post something there. Well I do plan on doing it tomorrow, if not today.

I need to shave. I didn't bother shaving during this cold snap. The hair on my face was helping me keep warm. The problem is that people tell me that it looks good but I'm not a "beard" person, though I do enjoy it when the ladies run their fingers through it.

I have a pile of DVD's to watch. DVD's that I bought and I never got around to watching and stuff from my Zip account. Of course I'm going to watch the Zip rentals first. I've had the Ghost in the Shell DVD for some time now and I really need to watch it but the rest I just got this week and I want to get them in the mail by Monday. I have Gothika, Eurotrip and Starship Troopers 2 to watch. On the pile of stuff that I bought, I have. Kill Bill Vol 2. , The Punisher, Spiderman 2, The Obsournes Season 2 Part 2, Mulan, I Robot, and some other stuff. Yesterday I bought Top Gun and Field of Dreams. I love my DVD's.

Job hunting is extremely important right now. I have to get out of there. I applied for a promotion but I don't know what happening with that since the manager was fired yesterday. YES they fired the boss. Though I hope the HR guy follows through on things or I'm going to be pissed beyond belief.

Did I mention that I live in a pigsty? Well it seems like it to me and its driving me crazy. The problem is that I don't know where to start. I have a massive pile of laundry, the dishes are done, I have to vacuum and dust. If I manage to get everything clean, maybe I'll take a picture. NAWWW.

I'll also do some browsing for a new cell phone as well. I want a camera phone so I can start a moblog but right now I'm still stuck in this contract with Rogers Wireless and I want to tell them to go to hell. About 6 months ago, I started getting these text messages about purchased ring tones, ring tones that I never bought. I called and complained about it right away and it went from bad to worse. They accused me of lying about making the purchases, even though some of the purchases were made when I was ON THE PHONE WITH THEM. Then suddenly my data charges went through the roof. So I canceled everying and went on the cheapest plan and told them not to bother me. Rogers Wireless can go to hell for all I care.

Anyway now I need to decide what carrier to select. Telus, or Bell. I was also considering FIDO but now I hear that Rogers bought FIDO so they can bite me. They both have their pluses and minus, but I have months to decide. I can get a free camera phone from Telus if I give them my Rogers phone but If I go with Bell, I can get a $10 discount on my phone package since I can bundle it with my Satellite TV service. Decisions, Decisions. Oh well I have time to decide.

Well hopefully I'll have some interesting things to chat about and do. Take care everyone.

Well it’s Wednesday night. I’m at work and it’s friggin cold out. I mean real cold. Its –27 right now and its suppose to go down to –31. This is insane. They closed all the schools today because it was too cold to travel. The roads are slippery as hell and I want a FLAME THROWER.

I want a flame thrower, just so I can keep warm when I’m outside. I’m not outside much but for the amount of time I AM out, its too cold. My skin starts to get frost bitten after 5 seconds of exposure. 5 SECONDS !!!

Its so cold out that the water main a block from my place broke because the water froze. The water in the pipe deep in the ground. I was one of the lucky ones but some places are on "emergency water" which means a trailer with a water tank is parked outside their building. The Shell gas station is also without water which sucks for people who want Slurpies but then again, who wants a slurpie at –40 C (with the wind chill). You’d be surprised.

Anyway its cold out and I’m nervous that I won’t be able to have children because "my boys" are frozen solid. Its that cold people. I’ve been teasing people about how they are wimps with dealing with cold weather but now, this is real cold. The type of cold that makes you feel alive. Just before you FREEZE TO DEATH.

Well If I make it home in one piece, I intend to park my ass and make some Hot Chocolate and not cry over the fact that I have to go out in this shit again tomorrow. Well my "boys" are frozen solid so there isn’t much else they can do is there?

Boss, I'm not coming in because...

Alright its January and I realized that I have sick days again. WOO HOO. I have 5 sick days to use and when I need them I will use them. Oh, did I mention that being sick has nothing to do with using a sick day. Actually I'm wrong; using a sick day is ok. Even when not you're not sick because I'M SICK OF WORK.

Of course to call in sick, you need an excuse as to why and the same excuses don't always work. They tend to wear out eventually however I do have a list of some I found, some I used and some that I need to use just because.

I have the clap.

I have explosive diarrhea.

I was sprayed by a skunk.

I tripped over my dog and was knocked unconscious.

My bus broke down and was held up by robbers.

I was arrested as a result of mistaken identity.

I forgot to come back to work after lunch.

I couldn't find my shoes.

I pulled my groin

I hurt myself bowling.

I was spit on by a venomous snake.

I totaled my wife's jeep in a collision with a cow.

A hitman was looking for me.

My curlers burned my hair and I had to go to the hairdresser.

I eloped.

I'm too lazy to work.

I'm too stupid to work

The dog ate my car keys. We're going to hitchhike to the vet.

My brain went to sleep and I couldn't wake it up.

My cat unplugged my alarm clock.

I had to be there for my husband's grand jury trial.

I had to ship my grandmother's bones to India.

I forgot what day of the week it was.

Someone slipped drugs in my drink last night.

A tree fell on my car.

My monkey died.

I can't find my clothes but if I manage to find my way home then I should be ok.

If it is all the same to you, I won't be coming in to work. The voices told me to clean all the guns today.

I can't come in to work today because I'll be stalking my previous boss, who fired me for not showing up for work. Okay?

And my personal Favorite

I prefer to remain an enigma.

Now I have some days available and if/when I use them (who am I kidding, I'm impressed that I haven't used one already) they will be for health reasons, physical or mental health.

Sometimes even God wants you to take a day off. One day I swear I literally spend an hour looking for my keys and by the time I found them, I knew that I was going to be late and I said "OK I'm sick, I get the message God and spend the day playing video games, ordered Pizza and watched Oprah. Hey Oprah and Grand Theft Auto is a good mix.

Anyway I'm looking forward to using my sick days in one form or another and taking some time to enjoy life this year. Ferris Bueller took a day off now and then and I intend to as well.

Just a quicky

Today I saw this program on Discover Civilization about Table Hockey. Now as a kid I really enjoyed and it can be fun to play it once in a while but these guys were obsessed with it. I mean come on. Try videogame hockey people.

What I found amusing though was all the hard core players had a French accent : Ahhh the French can be Canadian sometimes. They focused on this club in Montreal (Yes I said club). A bunch of guys hanging out every weekend playing table hockey. I wonder if any of these guys will ever get girlfriends? Actually one guy had just gotten married, oh well its hockey and you have to love it.

Well today it's FUCKING COLD OUT. Sorry no other way to describe it. Currently with the wind chill its -36C or -32F. Were talking "Day after Tomorrow" here and it's suppose to be like this all week, so I plan to stay indoors.

It's been a geek day for me, working on my Geek Blog and I put in a new template. I still need to tweak some things but its coming along. Anyway, I know this is a short one but I do have things to do and I hope to post again before midnight so take care.

Its Damn Cold Outside !!

Well its damn cold out. It's a real Canadian winter were talking about here. Let's see, currently its -18 C with a wind chill of -26. That's -1 F with a -15 F wind chill. Oh and it's suppose to stay like this for all of next week, so its going to be cold for awhile. So to all the people in the U. S. who complain about their winter weather I say this. WIMPS! ! ! !

We're going to have blowing snow (when it warms enough to snow during the week) and then its going to get cold again. Yeah you hear me right, get warm enough to snow. Currently is to cold to snow right now. You need moisture for snow and when its -2000C, it can't snow.

Basically if you've seen "The Day After Tomorrow" then you've seen a Canadian winter. Personally what I liked about that movie was when Canada was mentioned, we were basically ALREADY DEAD. Yeah right. We Canadians know about cold.

Anyway I ended up downtown today for a haircut and I forgot how much I dislike the downtown core when its cold out. First thing I encounter once I got off the C-Train and got indoors (I used the +15 corridors connecting buildings to get to where I wanted to go) was that stupid little dumbass that I got fired a few months ago (he was a temp anyway). I noticed him before he saw me so I managed to avoid him but I did hear him say "that's my old boss" as a left the building and walked across the +15 to where the salon was.

So I get my hair done, my stylist (is that the term? ) is this guy from Lebanon, his whole family runs the place (and another place at the airport) and he always does a very good job for a good price. So I get that done and I walk back into the walkway and notice a deal that McDonalds is having. They're trying to promote their new deli sandwiches and for today, I buy a sandwich and get fries (or coleslaw) and drink for free. So I place my order, I ask for coleslaw and a iced tea to go with my sandwich. Then this guy comes ins and orders a burger. He then freaks out when he doesn't get his free fries and drink (the sign says "for new deli sandwiches only" so they refund the guy and he leaves cursing.

So after I get my food, and I'm sitting down, two guys walk through the restaurant and one guy keeps swearing his head off. I really don't need this, so I finish up and catch the C Train back to my part of town.

Of course I just miss the train and have to wait 15 minutes so I head inside to a HMV and start browsing through the DVD's and I find something which makes me question all reality. WHY THE HELL IS HEE HAW ON DVD? Wasn't that some lame ass country music variety show and I find it on DVD? ? Are they planning to release absolutely everything on DVD now? Its bad enough that The Simple Life, and The Anna Nicole Smith show are on DVD but Hee Haw? I'd rather stand outside and wait for my nuts to freeze than watch Hee Haw. They will release anything now I tell you. Alright I want to see The Beachcombers and The Littlest Hobo on DVD now.

Anway I catch the train back home and all I want to do is stay put but I ended up walking through the Big Mall by my place and ended up buying some pillow for $5.99 a piece. Now will someone explain to me how some pillows can be sold for $45.00, while I bought mine for $6.00. Is it because they are the "Martha Stewart fluffy" pillow? Are they special pillows designed to muffle the screams of your cellmate and you choke the life out of them. Well if someone expects me to pay $50 a pillow, then I will choke them.

Well I finally made it home, parked my ass in front of the TV and finished Jak 3 for my Playstation. Woo Hoo, now to tackle Grand Theft Auto.

Oh yeah, I tried the new Microsoft Anti Spyware software and it runs like a charm (oh its not really Microsoft, they just bought the people who developed it and slapped their logo on the thing. ) Try it out its free.

I need to see a Broadway play. Anyone want to come along?

I was talking with a friend about "The Simpsons" and we were reminded of Planet of the Apes, the Musical. Does anyone remember the Dr. Zaius number done to Rock me Amadeus? How about the fact that the main star of the show was Troy McClure? Anyway after some thought I realized that there are many fine television shows and movies that can be turned into Broadway musicals.

Star Wars (Episode 4 to 6)

Now this is crying to be turned into a musical. We can get one of those blond haired boy band kids to play Luke Skywalker. It could even have opera qualities. When Ben is singing about facing Darth Vader or Luke can sing about his desire to leave Tattoine.

In Empire, Luke can sing about Darth Vader being his father. Han and Leia can do a number about their attraction to each other.

In Jedi, we can have the big finale with everyone together. Come on it would be great.

The Rocky movies (ok maybe not 5 and even 4 is debatable)

We can get Frank Stallone for the title role; lord knows that he needs the work. The numbers where Rocky is singing to Adrian alone will be great. We can have dance numbers as well. It will be fantastic…. Ok maybe not

Tomb Raider

If they can make 2 movies based on a this videogame franchise then a musical should be done as well. How about 'Posh Spice' in the leading role?

Resident Evil

Again if you can have 2 movies based on a videogame then a musical could be done, just like Tomb Raider. We could have huge dance numbers with all the zombies. It would be fantastic


Yes "Seinfeld: The Musical" A Broadway show about Nothing. I hear Jason Alexander can sing and he's not doing anything right now. Let's give George a call and see if he's up for it.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I think they did a musical episode once so doing it on the stage instead of in front of a camera should be a minor adjustment.


Yes Batman the musical, why not? How about Billy Joel as Batman? I think it would be perfect. Yeah I would go out and see it. Hey we put up with the Prince soundtrack from the first movie so a musical shouldn't be that much different.


Now your all laughing now big time right? Spiderman the musical, now he's really lost it. Well guess what! ! Its happening for REAL. Don't believe me, then click on this.

So I'm ready to get my tux out of the closet and enjoy an evening at the theatre. How about you?

Oh and if someone can come up with an idea like "Cop Rock" for a TV show then turning all these ideas into musicals shouldn't be that big a deal

When did they get the soul draining machine at work?

It seems like its been awhile since I've written anything meaningful like my hatred for mannequins. I've lived in the "now" a lot lately Just in the past week and starting this week and I'm getting tired of living "for the moment".

I've always was annoyed with people who "don't think" and just do what they want and don't consider the consequences. It just annoys the hell out of people. Like someone I know who didn't finish their work on Monday and the next day everything was moved around. Oh and then this guy goes off on a rant and blames someone else now that he cannot finish what he started without hunting for some crap because the other person cleaned up his mess.

Am I making any sense?

My mind is so full of "just get by" simple processes that it seems that my "light" is dying and I'm too tired, or defeated to "rage against it". I'm scared that my creativity is starting to give out. NOOOOO ! ! ! ! !

Well I'm sure there are a few people who would disagree with me since I have still maintained my quality of writing in my online play by e-mail RPG groups but I want this blog to flourish and it seems that this isn't occurring right now. It's at the point where I'm thinking about posting the "Cookie Monster". I had some time off and I seemed to become a vegetable and now all I have right now is sleepy stuff in my eyes.

Sometime today, there's supposed to be a memo issued about a new start time for work. Apparently its to be 2 hours later than now which can be a good thing or a bad thing, who knows. Well at least it will give me 2 more hours to do "whatever" before I go to work.

Now that I think about it, I blame work for stealing my soul. That's what's going on here. I can feel it, my soul is being drained from me by my job and I will NOT ALLOW IT. Does this mean that I'm starting to "rage against the dying of my light"? I hope so because right now, things are unacceptable. Its like I'm going on auto pilot. I'm not challenged. I need to face the "impossible", not some old hippie guy at work who's complaining that management thought that he took some stuff from the shelves. (I'm not going there; he's a nice guy but……)

Well some good news, my mind still wants to work on problem solving. I keep looking at this blog of a friend of mine who appears to be having some HTML issues. Long ago I helped Vics with a problem and now I want to fix this one as well.

Another thing, I miss her, she hasn't been around lately. I know she'll ill but I still miss her nonetheless.

Let's see, I'm working my ass off for too little money. I'm broke and I'm just not enjoying life. Ok that's the end of it. My job is killing me. I need to get out or else.

Oh here's to happier time.

C is for Cookie, that's good enough for me,
C is for Cookie, that's good enough for me,
C is for Cookie, that's good enough for me
Cookie, Cookie, Cookie starts with C.

A day of blog surfing

Things that I observed while blog surfing today.

There was this guy's blog, he had a picture of himself smiling and everything on the blog was about going to the gym and working out. I so wanted to beat the shit out of this guy.

Michelle is everywhere. She really is !!!

I found this recipe for "Valentine Bath Salts" though I only shower.
1 cup sea salt
3/4 cup Epsom salts
1/3 cup of baking soda
Drops of essential oil (see below)
Combine all of the above and then add a few drops of your favorite essential oils in combination until you have a scent that is just to your liking.

Someone said this. (Its like I have a twin)
You know how you're always told to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Why don't those assholes ever talk about how you'll have to pee every 30 seconds when you drink those glasses of water, hmmmm???

Blog titled "The Ongoing Adventures of Naked Girl" make thing ALRIGHT then I think, hey that's false advertising.

I don't need a "Photo Plate Kit"

Oh and finally, some Jackass put a link to a porn site on my Tag Board, just as I was starting to have faith in people again, this asshole and goes that. I remove the entry and the post.

The World Sucks

I really want to think that there is good in all people. I really do but from conversations I've had and blog articles I've read today, I've feeling it's not the case. I hate to say this and it really bothers me but people are scum and only care about themselves.

I've been reading Dan "Foo" Huards blog and he was talking about his time at G4 and Tech TV (YES I'M STILL MOANING ABOUT THIS). I was reading about the dishonest nature of the producers and management of G4 in "faking" live calls for "The Screen Savers" by have staff friends and family staging these so called live calls. I personally loved how at one point, Dan was forced to use his own girlfriend for a call.

I soon found a link to a post by Wil Wheaton (He was on Star Trek) and his experiences with G4 as well. How the producers treated him and his co-host like crap and they ended up going behind his back and cutting his pay when he complained to management.

It's not the corporate world either. Earlier today I heard about some problems that a friend of mine was having and I'll just leave it at that because I promised not to say a thing and unlike many of the people in this world. I keep my word.

So basically I'm extremely depressed and disgusted with the world right now. I wish that I could just leave everything and disappear somewhere and just have my internet connection to keep me in contact with the world. Well I can dream I guess.

Once I said that I don't understand women, well now I think its people in general I don't understand. Perhaps I need more God in my life? I'm catholic but I don't really practice my religion or go to church (and my mom is disappointed by my not going to church) but again, I thought there was good in everyone but it seems that I'm wrong.

Now I'm going to say that there are exceptions to this (at least I hope so) and there are some people that when I see (even online on AIM or MSN) that just makes me smile. There are a few people who bring me joy and I wish I could spend a lot more time with them, but alas, I'm forced to see the world for its ugly self.

Another thing, what is the deal with political blogs. Is it just meet or are they nothing more than people throwing dirt (and worse things) at each other? Why can't these people have proactive discussions instead? I'm getting more and more sick of people every day

Oh well, I hope that I feel better tomorrow. I think I'll feel better when my entire life changes. I need change and I need a hug.

2004 Year in Review (hey everyone else is doing it)

Well it's a new year and it time to reflect I guess. Actually I don't know why its time to reflect but everyone else seems to be doing it. News programs are doing their top stories of the year, and radio stations are playing the "top hits" of the year so I guess its time for me to discuss 2004, its highs and lows so here goes.


January was a cold month. It was mostly work and home, but the highlight of that month was getting arrested for beating up a department store mannequin (he was asking for it, wearing those slacks).


Ahh the month with Valentines Day. Where couples get together on that one special day and romance is in the air. NOTHING HAPPENED! ! !


It's started to get warm again. Life was usual and I await for more exciting things to occur. MMM guess nothing exciting happened then either.


Let's see, spend some time in Banff and bought a crapload of stuff with my income tax return. Discovered the joy's of the PVR and finally got a computer that doesn't SUCK! ! !


Warm enough to start enjoying the great outdoors and was once again reminded by the Police about being nude on my balcony. Oh and its playoff fever in Calgary. The flames are so close to winning the Stanley Cup, even they couldn't believe it. They came out of nowhere. GO FLAMES GO.


School was out for the summer and the little bastards were everywhere to annoy the shit out of me. Can we just put a leash on them and tie them up?


Stampede time again in Calgary. It was another great 10 days of cowboys and rodeo fun. Free food all over the city and a great time. Everyone should come to Calgary for the Stampede and enjoy it once in their lives.


Hot and Hotter in hell. I prayed for snow, it was that bad. Oh and I started my blog.


I can relax more now that the little monsters are back in School. Oh and I joined Zip. ca so now I don't have to drag my lazy ass to Blockbuster to rent DVD's


Ohh a scary month Halloween. Well not really, the only scare was when I opened my mail every month, AHHH the bills, the bills.


It's starting to get cold again. Dammit I hate winter. Wow they reelected that Bush guy. At least he's reopening the border to Canadian Cattle. My favorite Bush quote of the month "I ate Alberta Beef and I'm still alive" thanks for that vote of confidence.


Christmas time again and it's Freezing! ! ! ! Another time to reflect and hope things go better next year.

Well now that I think about it, not a whole lot happened to me personally except for buying a lot of crap in April. 2005 should have some changes, between my sisters wedding and finding a new job, things should be a whole lot more exciting. (Yeah right)

Happy New Year everyone.

Oh yeah I got a Christmas card from April. It says "Merry Fucking Christmas Asshole", ahhh she has the heart of a poet.
