Those silly gays and their silly problems???

You have GOT to read this article posted in The Edmonton Sun. Sadly, this is not uncommon thinking whatsoever even though I would love to believe things are moving forward. And just so you know...I do think heterosexuality is marvelous. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for my heterosexual parents! I think it's high time we ALL started to really learn how to EMBRACE our very many differences on this great planet, instead of dissecting them and leaving pieces strewn across this vast landscape. It's pretty obvious we're stumbling badly over all this debris scattered about.

So to all my readers I say this. I love you and all your "differences". Sure, sometimes you piss me off...but I'll embrace that too. *s*

Long Time No Post

Sorry for the absence lately. I will try and turn over a new leaf starting Jan. 1st!!! I want to post at LEAST once a day. That's my goal anyway. *s*

Going to the Oilers game tonight. Hopefully we will be kicking some serious Senator's ass!!! If not...I hope it's at least entertaining. Our seats are on the very last one behind high as you can get. Nothing but the best I tell ya. lol Nah...everybody knows the action is always happening in the nose bleed sections!!!

Sunday, December 21, 2008


I attended a funeral on Friday. A dear friends mom had passed away. The service was far as funerals go I guess. It was held at Burgar's Funeral Chapel in Camrose. This was the same place G.D.'s (my Grandad's) service was held. I couldn't help but think about that day in my mind. It seemed like last week but it was well over a decade ago now. It's strange how your mind works and how clear you can remember certain things from your past...yet impossible to remember where you just laid your car keys.

Baby, it's cold outside

Well from the weather we had been having in November to this is quite a shock to the system. -32c is a bit chilly even for the most seasoned veteran! When I look out the window this morning it even LOOKS cold. Brrr...I think this may be another stay inside and keep warm day.

PS: It's warming up. Now up to -30c. Almost balmy. *s*

World of Goo

World of Goo is a Wii Ware title that sells for about 15 bucks and takes only minutes to download. Don't let the simple graphics fool you. This is an addicting puzzle game. IGN's review actually gave the game a 9.5 out of 10. I have pleasantly wasted about 5 hours playing it and didn't even realize how much time had actually passed. Games that can hold my attention like that are definitely few and far between! This game has excellent value for the money. Up to 4 players can play. I was looking for the option on where to add players but all you have to do is turn on another Wii remote and a second person (or more) can help build away. What's nice is they can put the remote down and it will not effect the game play. Just come and go as you like. Only remote number 1 has to be active as that is the one that moves the screen around. This game is sure to give you hours of cheap entertainment. Simple mechanics and a sharp mind is all you need. This is a must have for your Wii Ware collection.

Finally Winter

Well it was soon to come and now it's finally arrived. Winter in Edmonton. I took these off the deck this morning. Kind of a grey snowy morning. I guess it puts one more in the festive mood with the white stuff on the ground.

Cracker Jacks

Remember those Cracker Jack boxes? You never quite knew what you were gonna pull out??? That's how I feel about our government these days. What a complete mess and joke. I think all of them should be fired and than we could just start from scratch. Enough of all of these yahoo's already. Where are all the damn likable politicians anyway??? *shaking my head*

Characters Fine Dining

Today my team at work was taken out for lunch by the head of another department. Characters was the restaurant and the meal was exceptional. I thoroughly enjoyed the two and a half hour lunch with my co-workers. The food presentation was top notch. Truly art on a plate! We had a table right in front of the galley. Kind of a neat spot. *s* Not only working downtown but living here gives me the opportunity to experience alot of great restaurants. This was my first visit to Characters but I think I may have to try it the evening this time!

I found this little blurb on their website. How true!

“Bear in mind that brains and learning, like muscle and physical skills, are articles of commerce: you can hire them by the hour or by the year. The only thing in the world not for sale is Character.”

Ultra High Definition Wallpaper

My brother Jeff sent me a great wallpaper site. It's not only worth a look but definitely one you'll want to bookmark! This is the one I decided on tonight but I'm sure I may get click happy as I browse on through! Which one did you "set as desktop background"???

Harper is a sinking ship

What is with Stephen Harper anyway? I mean...I knew that there wouldn't be much good out of another minority government because he doesn't play well with others. But this last stunt just shows how much of a school yard bully he really is. Time will tell us the fate of our government. What is to be? Stay tuned I guess.

Shower or Baths?

The shower head broke so the last few days I've had to have baths. Now, it's not that I don't enjoy having a bath but not when you have to go to work! I find them more of a chore than. Baths should be left for the end of the day...unwinding...relaxing kind of thing. Not a frantic splash half asleep! So instead of having yet another crazy morning I am off to get a new shower head. Hopefully I can find one with a metal end this time as the plastic one broke off. They never make anything to last these days but I guess why would they? It makes us spend more money. *sigh*
