I'm in Camrose for a few days. This city is like a ghost town compared to Edmonton. I had an appointment that I had to cross town for and I gave myself WAY too much time thinking I would have to deal with bumper to bumper traffic. There was none of that. Instead I found myself wondering out loud...where the hell is everyone??? Probably indoors curled up by the fireplace with a tea and a good book. At least the thought of that warmed me up a bit. For now, I'm in a dark cool basement wanting to scream upstairs to crank up the the heat!!! I won't be taking any layers off in the near future.
We're going out for supper. I hope we are eating in a sauna tonight. If not, I'll ask if I can sit by the open stove. Worth a shot.

I'm counting the days until the launch on the Wii. I am so looking forward to belting out a few tunes and pounding on that drum set. At the end of the video it states there are going to be songs you can download and entire albums. I say YES YES YES!!!
I don't think I've been this excited since...well...Guitar Hero.
So if you haven't jumped into the car to check out the Bright Night's display you might as well go for it. Just eat before you go cause once you see the McDonald arches you're tummy will be yelling Ba da ba ba ba...I'm lovin' it.

Update: The Canadian launch for Rock Band was actually delayed from Nov. 22 to Dec. 17th. There were rumors that the Canadian game did not have the French version installed. Looks like this game will be very scarce for the Christmas season. Maybe the Play Me store will sell out of their overly priced products after all.

- Refusing to provide a breath sample
- Five counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death
Why is it even a choice to give a breath sample? If witnesses and police first on the scene suspect there was alcohol involved it should NOT be a choice. I say handcuff the party in question and strap an apparatus onto his head until we get one. We are far too lenient in this country when it comes to drinking and driving. This kind of needless death just shakes me to the core. Now I know parties are innocent until proven guilty but it looks shady to me. Why would anyone refuse a breath sample if nothing was "up"? It just automatically makes one look bad.
Bottom line is things need to change. We need new ways of getting breath samples and extremely tougher penalties for convicted drunk drivers. Maybe than people will at least give a second thought about getting behind the wheel after having a few. Until than we will continue to see an abundance of needless waste of life.
Merry Phreakin' Christmas.

Nope. I cannot play my own homemade ringtones, or any ringtone that you don't buy from Telus. I find this quite maddening. I can legally purchase a song from iTunes and create a 30 second ringtone from it, upload it to my phone and when I go to use the tone I get the lovely "Not Allowed By Activation Key" message. This has to do with DRM (Digital Rights Management) and I understand about piracy and copyright issues but this is crazy.
Here's why I think this is all a money grab. I just went to the Telus site. The ringtone I want is Galaga. It's an old video game I used to play...and yes I'm a geek. The tone is 10 seconds long...yes I timed it. Telus is selling that diddy for a cool $3.50 + Applicable Carrier Charge (whatever the hell that is). Now, I have recently purchased music off the iTunes website. One song is 99 cents there. Considering that the average song is 4-6 minutes long you can see my disgust in the obvious robbery that's happening with ringtones. And just to add to the two x four in my side I recently had to send my phone away to get it reset. I had a few ringtones on there but alas, they are gone. You'd think Telus would know which ones I purchased so I could download it to the SAME phone again but no. I have to buy them. You've got to be kidding me right? No wonder hacking and piracy are such large issues nowadays.
I do have to mention that when I had to send my phone away Telus gave me a loaner. It was the exact phone and even the same colour. I uploaded my contacts from my computer and everything was pretty much business as usual. I didn't have to learn a new phone which for me is like winning the lottery. So, nicely done Telus but come on, give us a break on the ringtones if you're not going to allow us to use our own. If you'd charge 25 cents each I'm sure I'd have hundreds.

This has got to be the coolest remote control device I have ever laid my eyes upon! Who needs a car, a boat and plane when you can easily get all three with the Hydro Flyer? I sure wish I could justify a $250 toy because I would be all over this puppy!
