5.5 cu ft of chilly glory

Well .. the time is going by faster than shit on ice cream. It has been fairly eventful the past little while. Leanne and I got some more work done in the house. We are slowly making progress. I am hoping to get Harland's room painted this weekend. We purchased a freezer today so now all we have to do is come up with a way to get it home. Bill might be able to get his company truck to give me a hand. This would be sweet. Since the city has not been picking up garbage for the last month now. The garbage it building up quite a bit in my back yard. Not to mention the old carpet and foam that is sitting out in the back now. Well hopefully that eyesore will be gone.

I haven't really had much of a chance to even say boo on this page just because I have been doing so much database entry stuff it makes my eyes bleed and when I take a break for lunch or whatever I just want to stay way from the computer. So if you are wondering what the hell is the matter with me. Then .. there is your answer.

In my free time lately all I have been watching is either X-files or Kung Fu episodes. I would have to say both of those shows would be in my top 10 favorites TV shows if I had to make a list. Hmm.. that would be pretty difficult, I don't think I would be able to do that.

Listened to:
Blind Melon - Blind Melon
Elliot Smith - XO

Letter from Tony.

I recieved a letter from Tony and replied to him. I thought since I have not had a chance to blog in the last little while that I would uses that as my blog entery for today. Yes .. that can be cheating .. but why not?

Hey Gil:

What's up? What's New? What did you do this past weekend?

Cathy's Mother from Vancouver is here until tomorrow; she arrived last
Thursday. We have had a great visit, and she has had an amazing time.

I am doing 10 - 12 hours of homework today. I have no classes on Tuesdays,
but they will be filled with homework. Oh well, it will pay off in the end,
though.

If you find out when Wallace and Grommit is playing at the theatre let us
know. As I said to Bill, it would be cool if we could all go together. We
just need a little advance notice to arrange for a babysitter, which I know
you can relate to.

You have to hear the new C'mon and Trick Woo CDs; I bought them from Dave,
and damn do they rock. The C'mon CD is full on analogue. It is one of the
warmest rock albums I have heard in years. Also, I have a copy of the Moog
documentary DVD coming via Dave. We will have to check it out when it
arrives.

Hey man ...

what happend this last weeked.. hmm .. watched Crash. (the newer one with matt dillon) That was pretty cool. picked up the bass for the first time in the last however many years.. bought some paint from rona. slowing making prgress on moving all of leannes shit downstairs. so we can turn that into harleys room. Slow progress... but .. hey whatchagonnado.

I did hear you spin some of the tracks of tricky and cmon on your show last week.. you played something like 3 or 4 from each? .. yeah .. they sound pretty good. It would be nice to see them at the gaslight.. but I wont be able to go likely so .. I am trying no to think about it too much.

I will look into the wallace and gromit movie when I get a chance. yeah .. I think that would be cool to do it with everyone. .. fun shit and giggles all around.

How did you hear about this moog documentary? .. i like moogs .. I like documentarys.. so .. I probably would like that too!

I got a cool film from the library that I did not catch all of yet called. "Step across the border". It's like a improvisational musical documentary of Fred Firth. I have not watched it all yet. But from what I have seen so far is pretty cool. I also watched that Decasia film that you recommended (at least I think you did) it was pretty cool, but I found the music really painful. Made me feel nausaus like that pink floyd at pompei did .. haha.

well .. I guess I should go . I have all this database entry shit to do .. and it is starting to drive me batty .. but one of those necessary evils that have to get done.

I am going to the dentist tomorrow. .. Ick.

love
gilly


There ya have it. Also .. and an additional note, leanne and I was at Value Village last night and I picked up U2's "The Joshua Tree" on cd for 3 BUCKS!!! whee!!! .. I have not heard that album since my vinyl days. Gotta get me a turntable. .. ah .. not that it would matter for that album anyway. I think Hema bought that copy from me.

Listened To:
U2 - The Joshua Tree

Sin City.. slow?

So my brother rented Sin City the other day and lent it to me to watch before returning it. He and his wife couldn't get into it. They said it was slow moving and didn't go anywhere.

Slow moving? Were they watching the same movie? Maybe they had it on freeze frame searching or something. Because it was defintely not slow moving.

It was one of the most action packed and violent movies I have ever seen! And the effects in the movie were simply astounding!!! And it also contained some of the most disturbing shit I have ever seen in a movie.

No wonder why I loved the movie. They hated it!

This last weekend was fairly fun packed.

Last Friday Night - Harley had his first date. We say that because that is what it ended up looking like anyway. We went to the Circus with Kyle, Ang & Eve. Their good friend Tara has connections with the circus people and she invited us to come along. It was a blast. Eve and Harley are good friends through daycare already. It was cute. When we got to the parking lot and let the kids out of the car, Eve and Harley went to each other and gave each other a big hug. Harley then took Eve's hand and they went walking to the circus with us. It was soo cute. I was ready puke I thought it was so cute. hahaha. Then if that wasn't cute enough they were sitting together for part of the circus and sharing popcorn. It was like a little first date. Totally awesome. Only two years old and Kyle is already having to worry about his daughter. hahaha.

Saturday/Sunday. - Since it was a three day weekend, I can't remember which was which, but we did go to a movie over the weekend with Bill and Wendy. Well actually just Bill because Wendy fell ill before we went to the movie. I guess she's sick of us. We saw Brother's Grimm. I enjoyed the movie quite a bit.. ahhh!! yes now I remember. That was Saturday, because we went to the fireworks for the celebration of Saskatchewan's birthday on the Sunday. or wait a min .. was that Saturday? .. hell I don't remember. The fireworks were good, but at this point right now I can't remember if I remembered them either.

Monday - I do remember that we did go to the farm this day through. And with the price of gas.. it was probably 30 bucks justs to go there and back. That is crazy. Jason's birthday .. and more cake for all.

Barbie Cue

So we are having another staff BBQ today. .. mmmm.. I like BBQ. I am disappointed in myself that I have not been able to get my BBQ going at home. Since the backyard is all dirt.. there is really no place that I can put it. Maybe hopefully I can get that backyard done up next year. That would be nice. Well time will tell I guess.
