tweedlebugs

I was watching Sesame Street with my daughter this morning and I was shocked to see that they now digitized Ernie's tweedlebugs.

It's amazing how some of the stupidist things can upset you for the rest of the day.

pointing fingers...

I am tired of living in a society of bitching, wining, complaining and not doing anything about it..

.. if you are not going to do anything about it, then shut the fuck up..

.. hmm .. I think that is why I have little to say lately.

Some People have more than just time on their hands.

Thanks to Mitch for both the video and the computer .. rock on

To my faithful viewers..

If you are wondering why I have not been adding to much to my blog page as of late it was because I have been trying to get over my groin sufferage. For a while there I was not even able to sit upright in front of a computer. So I didn't. I had my vasectomy last week and I feel that I now have completely recovered, though there is a slight uncomfortableness .. but not enough from be to begin my "twenty shots" .. Once that is complete. I will then go in for a sperm analasis to see if I am officially sterile. Time will tell..

Rock on and love to all of you!

20 years

I was in the basement with the kids today and I decided to spin some vinyl.. I decided to put on Midnight Oil's "Diesel and Dust" and while I was enjoying this fantastic album I realized that it was freakin't 20 years old already. Holy shit! .. I still don't think any of todays music that is out there will hold up as it did. I wonder if there will be any kids nowadays listening to the shit that they listen to 20 years from now..

.. it's a mind fuck

Thanks to Colin for bringing this to my attention.

I woke up this morning ...

.. I get out of bed, walk over to the coffee pot rubbing my eyes. Reach for the empty pot so I can fill it water to start making coffee.. miss it, reach for it again, miss it.. reach for it again, miss it ... this time I realize that my hand is going through the handle. Try it again .. I can't grab it for the life of me.. "what the fuck?" I say to myself, Try to get the coffee out of the cupboard, the same thing happens, I can't open the door beause my had keeps going through it.

In confusion I call leanne and walk towards the bedroom. As I walk in the door of the bedroom, I notice that I am in bed, but I am blue and not breathing. Leanne is sleeping beside me and I try to shake her to wake her up, but my arms keep going through her and into the bed, I start screaming to Leanne, but she doesn't hear me. "Leanne!!!! Leanne!!! What the fuck!!! Am I Dead?!!! LEANNNNNNNNE!!"

I wake up.. beside Leanne.

..I get out of bed, walk over to the coffee pot...

When you feel blue, sing this song to yourself ..



thanks Ahmad!

sometimes .. things are just plain annoying ..

So I have been fighting with the damn blogger video app for the last while to get that Wax video going, that I posted yesterday .. but I am not having any luck with it .. so I thought I would post some of the pictures that I took from it here.




ok .. I know there are just two .. but all of the other ones I had to "flip" to the right because they were taken vertically.. Hmm .. maybe I should just start a flickr account like me buddy Ahmad.. hmm ... anyway .. when I get a chance to sort through my pics more.. maybe I will post them .. hmm .. or check my facebook .. maybe I will make an album in there for a kick in the ass.. actually I got some other pictures of the kids I should put in there.. man. Too much stuff to do and no time to do it.

What a lame diary this is..

Monday, September 24, 2007

Ahhhh is Ahhhhsome!

My buddy Ahmad took some photos of us last Saturday Morning before we went to the farm. Check them out here if you dare. I think the majority of them are pretty sweet!

Wax live in Regina

Here is a clip that I took from the last Wax Mannequin show here in Regina on Aug 20th. This is the only one I can post because all of the other ones are too big in size. This is the first time I tried to post through this blogger thing, so it is a good excuse to see how it works.

video

Do you know the song he is performing? Test your musical skills

What the hell?

I just found out that Cannibal Corpse is in town playing this evening. And the only reason I know that is because my buddy John mentioned that he is doing sound for the show in his email. My question is .. what the hell hole in the ground have I been sticking my head in? That would of been a sweet show to see!

Sunday, September 23, 2007

..again with that damn movie ...

Leanne and I watched KISS meets the Phantom of the Park. Man .. I haven't seen that movie since I was 5! .. cheesy as hell .. but friggin awesome!!

Harley's first day of school

We took Harley to his first day of Pre-K today. We walked to the school, which only took about 5 minutes, so that wasn't so bad

Leanne and I stayed there for the first little bit and then all of the adults started to disperse, so it was time for us to go. He seemed to blend well with the other kids right away.

If you ask me, I couldn't really tell the difference between his first day and from what I remember of going to Kindergarten for the first day. I couldn't help but start feeling all teary when I was seeing him there with the other kids and he seemed to start getting along with the kids right off. It blows my mind on how fast it seems that he is growing.

Leanne told me afterward when he got home, she asked him how his first day was and he said. "It was good! I listened and learned!".

Cute little punk.

And now for your enjoyment, here is Flight Of The Conchords with "The Humans Are Dead"

What a weekend

So it was quite the weekend for me. It started on friday night with Leanne working and evening shift until midnight. so I was with the kids myself having some "bonding daddy time" which was nice.

My glasses got smashed by accident just before Leanne went to work that evening. They fell of the table and broke in two So I was left with no glasses and a headache. Luckily I was able to find some new frames that I was able to fit my lenses in. They just had to shave them down a bit.

Unfortunately I was not able to get the new frames until later in the day and I had to take Harley his friend Bobbie's birthday party. Harley really enjoyed himself. I wonder how much it would cost to put him into a junior bowling league. Might need to look into that.

My sister spoiled my wife and I again this weekend. On Saturday evening, my mother and her took us out to Casino Regina to see a comedy show. I can't remember the name of the acts, but the female comedian reminded me Maria. Actually I think my sister was "connecting" with her so much when she started to talk about cats, I swear to god I thought Maria was going to piss herself. We then tried our luck a the slot machines, I lost my shirt, but Leanne won our money back and then some.

Sunday was a nice lazy play day with the kids. But then the evening ended with a kick when we went to see The Blue Man group. The show was freaking spectacular. And the sound what the best I have ever heard at the Agridome (Brandt Center). They had DJ open up for him by the name of Mike Relm. I admit I am not up on the DJ scene but this guy also incorporated "video scratching" which blew me away. Check out the clips below to get an idea.

Darci Lang - focus on the 90%

I begrudgingly went to see motivational speaker Darci Lang today because the CEO from work set it up for us. Actually, I admit, it was something I needed to see. I used to pride myself on being a optimistic person but I have been slipping because there has been a lot on my plate as of late.

I think I am going to read her book.

Thanks Darci ... well at least for today, I can't guarantee what I will be like when tomorrow comes.

Being a fan of the Apple commercials, I really got a kick out of this..

If you are expecting a "911" comment today ..then refer to my 911Blogger.com posting from a couple of days ago.

But if it is fun you want ..then check this out.



Ahmad was talking about how it would be fun to make these computers right now. I wonder if there would be a market for it..

I have to try this at home now..

Not only it is a game blast from the past of one of my faves .. but now someone noticed it is an actual egg in the game where the level can be completed without actually doing anything on the controller... shit .. if I only new that when I was actually playing the damn thing back in the day.

ABBA vs BEE GEES

A little while ago on my facebook page I asked people if they only could listen to one band would it be ABBA or BEE GEES. To my surprise, ABBA got the majority vote. I really thought that BEE GEES would have taken it because they have such a wider scope of music. I think it just goes to show that majority of people look at the Gibb brothers as a disco band and nothing else. It's a shame for people to think that that.

Zeitgeist - The Movie / bizarre dreams

Leanne and I finally got to start watching Zeitgeist last night after the kids went to sleep. We only watched the first two parts, about half of it, and will continue with part 3 this evening. I would recommend for everyone to watch this film it is a must see and worth having on DVD. I was wanting to watch it for a long time.. but I honestly didn't want to sit watching it in front of my computer desk. So that is why I didn't see it till right now.

If you haven't seen this movie, you should.

..in other news..

My wife has some bizarre dreams sometimes. Last night she dreamt that she cut off Talya's feet. The funny thing about it was that after she cut them off.. she realized what she done and said to herself, (in a calm tone) "hmm .. well that wasn't smart, now she won't be able wear any of the pretty shoes that I buy her". So she started to look for her feet so that maybe she could take her to the hospital to have them sewn back on, but all she could find were the toes and they would like dried up hunks of clay that would break into tiny little pieces.

It has been a while since I have had a cool dream like that worth mentioning.

When I get aggrivated and I need to calm down .. I listen to my old buddy Jim. He is the man.



I find it annoying that there are people in this world that work there ass off for little and others that do little and benefit way more from it. What the fuck has this world come to?

Mathew Good coming back?

So, I heard that Mathew Good is coming back to Regina in the near future. I guess he is wanting to see if he gets another shoe in the face like he did a few years back. I am surpised he is coming back honestly. Ah .. it doesn't matter, I won't be seeing him. I can't afford losing my shoes.

AAAAARRRRGGHHHH

DCA - cure for cancer

this blows my mind.. I just found this out today.. this has been in the news a few months back.. but it would be cool if they were able to take this to the next level. But unfotunately, since there is no patent on the drug.. there is no money to be made.. sickening.. watch the videos to see what I mean

I find it really amazing sometime how time flys by us. The whole concept of time is a total mind fuck to me. Maybe that's why I am always tired lately.

I wonder what Zappa is thinking of this right now..

I can't help but giggle to myself when I watch some of this "Live Earth" stuff that is going on right now. It's just funny to see Al Gore doing something that involves "Rock and Roll" music, where roughly 20 years ago there was that whole PMRC hearings with his wife Tipper that involved censoring music and the labeling of albums which we still see on some today. Especially when some of the artists that are performing at this were examples of rock and roll filth .. (like Madonna)

An appolgy to my blogger page

I am sorry blogger page.. I would just like to let you know that you are not forgotten and you are always in my heart. I know that you are upset at me because facebook and I have been getting along so much lately, but I don't mean any offence by it. It's just that facebook is convenient to me and I can go there for 2 seconds and do something without having to think of what I need to write.

Don't worry blogger, I love you still and I always will. I promise I will try harder in our relationship

from my buddy mike

I know that I have not been very good with the blogging lately .. so since my friend mike doesnt have a blog page of his own .. I thought I would post his last email I got from him of his ranting and what happened to him recently.. pretty good times. You think this was happening to me myself.

However.. I did get the hot tub filled this morning and the lawn cut .. but I fucked up the lawnmover. .. Take it away mikey!! ..

The other day I turned on the out side water tap, some time over the next couple of days the valve in the tap in the ceiling started to leak.

I called the handy man connection and they came for an estimate not a bad price and guaranteed work.

in the midst of this my neighbour wants to tear down and replace the fence between our yards and around his yard and wanted to do it through the month of june on the weekends and evenings, then he dicided to speed up the process and do it this weekend.

we were tearing down fence, my estimator for the windows had to show up friday instead of thursday and my plumber was coming.

the fence was coming down not too bad, the estimator was in and out but said he wanted to take the weekend off and i would not get the estimate until next week some time. ( screw that, I calles sears and said go ahead with the job, and took the 23 monthe payment option).

the plumber showed up late, I left the fence job and went to help him, the shut off valve for the main water would not close fully so we dicked around and got the pressure out and he was under way, theings went well until the water valve snapped and we had to call the city to come do an emergency shut down.


the y came and could not get the valve to shut off, they had to call their other crew and hope that they had not gone home for the weekend.

luckily they were still working and could come.

about an hour or two later they got here and had to water bore a hole down eight feet to the valve and try to shut it off, they dicked around for a long long long time and finally my plumber went out and got it so shut off he replaced the valve in my house and went out and turned the water back on and it all works but the city have to come back and dig up the yard to fix the trouble properly,

back to the fence, the neighbour and I did some more ripping out of the old deck and fence around his yard I did not have to help but I did.

this morning he went and got an auger for the holes and his brother to help, we were under way


things were going well until we hit the fucking gas line that had not been marked by the people that I called and clearly stated that we wanted both yards marked

we ran like hell and called 911 the firedept and the sask energy people showed up and have just now fixed the pipe.


SOME TIMES YOU JUST GOTTA SAY FUCK!!!!!

Facebook.. world domination?

So I started an account on www.facebook.com a while ago and I noticed that they have an unlimited amount of photos that you could post up there if you desire.

I posted some pictures of Harley and Talya up there. So if you are interested, you should go and check them out. It seems to have a fairly easy user interface there .. so hmm .. I may just post the pictures there.. I am not sure. hmmmm .. hmmm .hmmm.

I also have my notes from there read my stuff from here .. so the two kind of interconnect with each other. Isn't that shit a blast eh?

Harley & Talya

Mel (harley and talya's daycare lady) sent me some pictures of the kids in the backyard from last week. I had to post a couple of them to show off.




We went to the Western development museum in Moose Jaw over the weekend. We had a pretty good time. I will try to post some picture in my picasa web album when I get a chance.

Leanne started her new job today. For the first day of making sure that we all got up and got the kids to the daycare on time. It went pretty smooth. If the rest of the days go as smooth as this day .. we will be sailing!

Photo Albums

If you look at my links at the right .. you will now notice that I have photo albums now linked. It is my goal to start having pictures available for all my peoples to enjoy... right now there still is not really anything .. but I have a Gillyblog album and it will (hopefully) post all of the picture that I have put in my blog over the past while .. well it might only have the last couple of months.. but it will likely post all in the future. Well we will see I guess. It is a work in progress.

puke party

Well .. the last week has been faily interesting. My whole family, except for me has just went through the flu epidemic. First it hit Talya (though hers might only have been a single tossing cookies coincidence because she only threw up once) and then Leanne and then Harley. Leanne and Harley are still suffering a little from it, but they are getting over it. It is this reason that I misplaced 40 dollars and I am not sure what happened. Actually, the more I think about it, the more I think that I left the 40 dollars in the machine and only took the slip and my card back. That was a few days ago and I still never found the money. I thought I possibly put it in my jacket and then through it in the wash because Harley torqued all over it that day, but no luck. I went back to the bank yesterday gave my slip an explained the scenario, they are going to check the cameras for me to see if I took it or left it in the machine. That is cool. I don't want the 40 bucks back as much as at least confirming what I did.

Yesterday morning, Harley freaked us out. While we were getting ready we were calling for Harley. There was no reply. Leanne shut the water off and called again.. No reply. Called again .. and we could hear his voice faintly in the backround. We later noticed that Harley was OUTSIDE in the car with the keys in the ignition and yelling back to us from his rolled down window .. "I'm going to go to the store to get a toy for Mommy!!". He was still in his pjs and had two different boots on his feet. He was bound and determined to go to the store because he wanted mommy to feel better. Damn crazy kid. I am going to have to get some latch locks that are two high for him to reach (even with a chair) so he doesn't do this some time when we are still sleeping.

Speaking of sleeping, he didn't even go to sleep till about midnight tonight. I can't wait till he is done with the flu thing .. because he sure is silly and stubborn when he is sick

... ok .. I just don't get it.

So, my friend mike sends me jokes and pictures all of the time .. some of them funny .. some of them lame .. but at least I understand it. He sent me this one and it is bugging the hell out of me.

Can someone please explain the joke in this? .. I completely don't understand it. If it is a referance to the F1 key being broken .. then that is still really not that funny either because .. the majority of people (at least the ones that I talk to on the phone) don't even use the key in thie programs in the first place like they should. Anyway .. I don't get it. If you do.. please explain it to me..

Mouse Calibration

Is your mouse calibrated? You should do this every few days. More often if you spend a lot of time on your computer. I was shocked to see that this works! To re-calibrate your mouse, click and hold on the Y below. Then drag the Y toward the g. If it doesn't work, you might want to clean your mouse.


You dumb ass. You'll believe anything

Facebook

So a couple of my friends from work have now got me to join the facebook website as well.. man .. there are too many of these sites. Its hard to keep track. I think I will at very least stay with this one. The interesting thing though is I noticed that will let you upload and unlimited about of photos .. but the catch is I think you have to be a member to view them.. I am not sure because I havent looked too much into it yet .. but I will for fun I guess ..

..well I am going to bed now. Rock on friends

It has been about 25 years now since XTC stopped touring. Why? Because Andy had extreme stage fright for every show and it got the best of him.. Here.. A tour-weary Andy Partridge stumbles off stage at Le Palace, Paris, 18 march 1982. Unfortunately .. I will never get to see them live..

Overwhelmed

It's now about 10 after 4 in the morning and I can't seem to sleep. I woke up around 3 or so to Talya crying. She went back to sleep easily. She must of had a bad dream.

My evening then seemed to continue on thinking about all of the things that I would like to do that I haven't got done yet because I just didn't have the time. On the top of the list is that damn hot tub. I can't help but feel like I fucked it up now and may have turned it into a lawn ornament. If it was light outside I would go out there right now and finish it. It hasn't gotten cold enough (I hope) for the pipes to freeze so I guess I am safe there. I think it is more of a fear of algae and hell know what other kinds of species and monsters will grow in the parts where I didn't finish getting all of the water out. I again wish I had a wet vac. I guess turning the thing into a sandbox for the kids is always an option.

Then there is the cat smell from the previous owner that still lurks in the basement. But I can't really battle that until I finish organizing all of the boxes and the rest of the crap that has to be organized downstairs here. At least I did finish getting the shelves set up and now all I have to do is put the cds, dvds and my other crap on them. That will then open the space for the rest of the stuff to be done. Leanne has gotten pretty far on her sewing room. The basement is not done and it is not perfect.. but it is coming along..I guess I can't really get upset about it, I just wish I had more time to get it done. It will be done in time though... but...

Then there is outside the house, in which we still need for the rest of the snow behind the fence part that hasn't melted yet. So the dog shit can finish being cleaned. oh .. that reminds me of something funny that happened yesterday while we were out for breakfast. My sister was telling me a story of things that are going on in her life and I respond with a slight rant of sort saying something to the effect of "Ah fuck .. that is a load of shit" That may not be the exact saying.. but you get the point.. and Harley (my darling 3 year old son) stops me in my tracks by interrupting me and saying "You can't say fuck and shit daddy, Those are bad words. Stop it!" .. I was shocked .. I couldn't respond. He was right. The only thing I could to was to respond with.. "That's right Harley. Daddy was wrong" and I washed my mouth out with some coffee cream that was sitting at the table for punishment. ... kids. Gotta love them.

Now where was I?? .. oh right .. the dog shit again .. well anyway. I never really had a chance to rant on here about how much dog shit there was and I am not going to bother... Dog shit is on thing but on the other hand it wouldn't of been so bad in the back yard if the previous owner at least had enough brains to think. I mean .. if you have two fucking big dogs in the backyard wouldn't you not use your brain to realise that it might not be the right place to keep your bags of garbage? All along the side of the house revealed from the melted snow was scattered garbage. and not just your regular garbage, we are talking broken bottles, used underwear and used condoms (must have accumulated at least 15 of those.. sick fucks).. fake nails, bones, chicken wing and other assorted meat parts and enough cigarette butts to make a homeless bum have an orgasm. We have a lot of it cleaned up .. but man .. it is still an embarrassing mess. When Mike came over the other night .. I couldn't imagine what he was thinking when he walked passed a big stuffed lion (one of those big toys that you win at the exhibition) still half frozen into the snow beside the fence, otherwise it would have been gone with the rest of the crap.

Then there is the car. What can I say about the car .. man .. well .. there is nothing mechanically wrong with the car at the moment.. but I would like to take an atom bomb to the inside of it to clean it. Sometime .. that will get done too.

Those are just a couple of the things that are on my mind right now. There I other things that I have going on in my head thet I would never pose here. like other people do. .. and well no one would find that stuff interesting anyway.. that is like talking about work to people that don't work with.. who would give a shit.. .. if you are not there .. then you wouldn't get it ... so what would be the point. .. plus I have never really been that short for material... maybe I will write up something when I get in for a vasectomy .. man I am sure the comedy would roll in for that one.

I guess all in all though. Everything is still pretty good. Actually it is pretty great. I have the best family one could ever hope for and I have friends that I can always count on. I am in a way better house then I was before. The area kicks ass. We have walked through the park a few times now. Last Saturday.. Harley drove his tractor while I pushed Talya in the stroller around the lake. He had a blast. There was a couple of times he needed help getting up hill and it was too hard for him to pedal so I would be behind him with the stroller giving him a "boost" which annoyed him at the same time .. because Talya would then start laughing and hitting him on the back.. but it made Harley pedal to get away.. When Talya is "Strapped down" it is pretty good .. but man .. she goes .. she is now in the stage where all she wants to do is explore. While we were in the park.. I took her out of the stroller thinking that she would follow her brother. Nope... she starting running the exact opposite way into the field.. or towards some boys playing basketball. I think she was wanting to play with them. She has a fascination for balls at the moment. .. hell it seems that anything that moves she will start running to. She was trying to chase down a plastic bag that was blowing in the wind as well .. she got upset because she couldn't keep up to it. But with the way she is right now .. you look at her wrong way and she would get upset.. she is definitely more emotional than Harley was. I wouldn't of thought that was possible if you told me that when I only had Harley .. but it was.. I don't know if it is a girl thing.. or what.. But I love both of my kids .. I wouldn't trade them for the world and I would do anything for them. I just want the best for them like any father would. Its just sometimes I don't feel like I can do enough for them. I just hope that they think they have a decent daddy. If I can get close to the scope of how they think of their mommy. Then I will be doing ok.

Well .. I guess that is enough for me now.. My eyes are starting to get heavy as I notice it is starting to get closer to 5 in the morning.. . and I was just having one of those moments where everything has gotten to me. A friend of mine gave me a copy of "The Secret". I still have yet to watch it, haven't had a chance to.. but I think I am going to make it a goal for this next week. But .. they finally started playing new episodes of Degrassi.. and hey .. love my Degrassi.

unfinished tub

So .. friday evening, my buddy Mike from work came over and gave me a hand to start emptying and redoing my tub We began to empty it with the hopes I would fill it again the next day. But after doing so, the tub had more algae in it then what I anticipated.. and holy crap I never realized how difficult it would be to get the last little bit of water out of the tub. The next time I do it will definatley be when it is nicer outside and there is somebody to watch the kids. I couldnt keep the kids out of mischief enough to simply concentrate on cleaning the tub. So Now my tub is empty and I am going to give it a good scrub when I get a chance.

I think I am going to need to invest in a wet shop vac

Good Times

So those of you who where wondering what I have been up to this last month since I really haven't posted anything. Here is what happened to me in point form. (Thanks to Robbie for helping me out with this one)

* Bought a house
* Moved into house. Movers thought it would take 3 hrs to do... it took 8
* Found out house was a whore house
* Found lots of condoms, g-strings, cigarette butts, broken glass
* Found lots of dog shit in the backyard ... I mean LOTS!!!
* Took in all of the bottles left at the house and got almost $80!
* Lost faceplate for car
* Saw Heaven and Hell in concert
* Fire trucks came to house TWICE! ... in one day because alarm system was still set for previous owner
* Kids got sick and threw up all over the place. Talya was even in
the hospital for the day cuz she was dehydrated
* Found faceplate for car in driveway ... and yes, I drove over it
* went and saw "The Crucible" at Riffel High School. Bastards didn't sell any XL size T-shirts
* Meatfest ... Harley turned the fridge off in the afternoon ...
following morning we cooked up a big feast ... now I mean a really big feast
* Alarm system still set for previous owner, I don't dare touch the

moving

I thought I would make a quick little post while I am taking a break from packing. We have probably close to 3/4 of the house packed up right now. It is amazing how much shit one can accumilate after a couple of years. I am really trying my best to get rid of things that I dont really need .. but I am so much of a pack rat.

I think I messed up my back. Yesterday afternoon I tried to get a stepping stone that was made for us out from the front yard. Tip.. make sure that you remove a stepping stone from your front year before 3 feet of snow piles over top of it. It took me forever to get to the bottom of it since I didn't have a decent shovel, and then when I got to it. It was suddenly realized that it was frozen to the ground. I had to use 5 or 6 buckets of hot salty water to get it to come loose, along with my "mighty strength". At first last night I had a headache because I popped a vain in my brain.. but today is even worse. I definately messed my back up. My back has never been in this much pain before. But hey ... I got the stepping stone out. And that's what matters.

Well. I am not sure when I will be adding to this again. It looks like it will be a couple of weeks before I have internet and TV at the new place.

I guess I should get backatter...

it's artsy to wipe your ass.. .

My wife and I went and saw Notes on a Scandal for Valentine's Day.

The movie was pretty good, the ending was a little flat .. but the movie altogether was pretty good.. But come on.. was the scene with Cate Blanchett sitting on the toilet wiping her ass really necessary?

.. maybe I would have to read the book to get it.

SOLD

well .. it is finally official

our house is sold.

we will be out of here by March 1st.

Although I am excited and scared to see what the future brings. I am really going to miss my house. :(

i can't help but think I screwed over my family

We looked at another house in Pense today since the one we originally wanted was sold on us just as we sold ours.

It was not the same. They were wanting more money then the original one that we saw and we couldn't help but compare for what it was.

This next week will likely be the decision of whether we can find another place that we an afford here. Or we move out to Avonlea.

... I guess renting is an option **shiver**

the flu is coming around

Leanne was sick all day today. The flu is getting around. I can see it is just going to be a matter of time when it will hit me. Hopefully she will be better tomorrow. I don't really want to miss out on work right at the moment since I will be needing to take the time off at the end of February. I haven't heard what was going on with the house and we won't likely know until Tuesday. I think I mentioned that already.... ah anyway. We will see what happens in time I guess.

It is like a roller coaster ride right now. Exciting .. but scary as hell

Right now .. it looks like will be renting. We rented "The Illusionist" and watched it. Wasn't that bad .. it didn't focus on the magic as much as I had hoped like "The Prestige" did. It was more like a romantic drama of some sort.

being a dad is awesome

Even through my wife worked all day today and my son was sicker than a dog. It was one of those days where I enjoyed being a dad. Don't get me wrong .. I enjoy being a dad all the time .. but it is just those little moments that happen that make you say .. "Yeah .. this is the shit.. this is what life is all about"

It was just nice to be with my kids. Even though Harley was sick.. it was just nice to play games and bond with them.

what's that smell??

We looked at a house in uplands that was for sell for a decent price. Well we found out why it was a such a cheap price compared to other houses of the same size and so forth. It needed a fair amount of work. The kitchen cupboards were nice, the windows were like new and the bathroom tub and surround was decent.. but it hasn't been painted for over 20 years .. or it seems like it.. (You say .. but gil .. that's not a big deal! .. well lets go on shall we?). The flooring needs to be replaced, but is doable .. actually it is reported that there is hardwood underneath. But probably the most disturbing issue was when you walked inside there was this indescribable funk smell. That smelled like cabbage, dogs and death. It was such a foul odor at first.. We saw people who walked in and then walked right out within seconds saying.. "something is definitely wrong there..".. And in the front entrance where the odor was the strongest was this huge crack in the ceiling that was splitting open like the red sea. Was the smell in the attic perhaps? ..we are not sure...

We still haven't heard back about the final bank say of the people who are buying our house.. but no news is good news I guess. There were so many people who were there to look at that house in uplands that I think it is going to be snatched up before we would get a chance to put an offer on it anyway. Nice area .. but .. man .. that smell... I don't know if that is something you would ever be able to get out.

.. something tells me that we are going to be renting for a month or too.. But I am not giving up all hope just yet.

mistake #87292 in my life...

So I created an account on xtube.com for the hell of it.. I thought.. hey! .. free porn...

.. that might a been a mistake..

I noticed after looking at it ..other then the obvious fact that it's not all free.. it seems to be that there is more of guys putting pictures of there dicks or vids of themselves masterbating then anything..

... hmmm .. I do have a webcam.........

We sold?? our house.

We accepted an offer on our house.

Now I'm crossing my fingers hoping that the conditions for the buyer will pass. So I guess I shouldn't get too excited about it. Don't count my chickens before they hatch..

So far for our house... it's still looking like Avonlea or Pense. But people keep raining on our parade about moving out of town.

But so far .. it is our only realistic option .. but we will see what else pops up. I dont have much of a choice .. If this offer passes, the house is no longer mine after March 1st.

.. hmm .. maybe I should start packing..

shopping list

It's 5am right now and Leanne and I haven't really slept much at all. My daughter has got a viral infection of some sort and a rash all over her body currently. This rash I think is also irritable on her part because she has not been able to get to sleep comfortably all night.

I came downstairs to do a posting for the hell of it because I am hoping that maybe she will calm down in our bed with only one of us. She doesn't seem to want to be alone in hers and if she is in the bed with both of us she thinks it's "time to play".

We took Talya to the doctor in the afternoon yesterday. The doctor gave us some medicine and cream and said. If it gets worse take her too the hospital. Leanne seems to think that the rash does not seem as bad right now. ... hopefully that is true. But then again.. it's the middle of the night and we don't have all the lights on in the middle of the night. .. so that might make a difference.

Speaking of lights... I hate being broke. Not because I don't have money for like a big widescreen TV like most people would complain about being broke for.. but for the little things .. like lightbulbs. Last night all the lights in my kitchen burned out and I had to bring the lamp from the livingroom into the kitchen so I can make dinner and wash dishes. Now that is annoying.

That's what sucks about the job I do. I work my ass off.. hardly get any recognition and I can't even afford to get some luxuries in life.... like lightbulbs and razorblades. And yes... those are luxuries for me right now.

.. I guess I should add dish detergent to this list

... and .. damn.. I'm out of mustard too.

funniest thing I have seen in a long time

Thanks to Ahmad for finding this one. This is great.

it cold outside

I tryed to start the car this morning.

**chhhicnlrrrr**

I try again

**chhiehllrrrrwwrrrr**

Shit.. I wait a second ..

**Chhlirwrrr.... chhillrrrreeee... chrilwrrrrrghggghghgghgh gghg ghghghghghghghghghg what are you doing to meeeeeeeeewwwwhwhwhwheeeehghg ghg ghg gh hgr ghr ghr gfhr ghrrur rbur burrrrr rurur br brr rbrbbrbrbrbrbrbrbr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr***

Most hideous sounding thing I have ever heard .. after a min it seemed to sound a little more normal.. Man.. i'm thinking. It like the car never was plugged in. But I know leanne went out purposely to plug it in last night.

I go to wipe the snow off the car. Unplug the car and put the cord on the fence. I then noticed that the cord was not plugged in to the house.

doh!

Wednesday, January 10, 2007

it adds character to the car.

Well.. I was driving home today and I got in a car accident.

Came to a corner to make a left turn. Looked right.. nobody. Looked left.. car coming and passed.. drive forward into the intersection..

SMASH!!!

.. now I look to my right .. hmm .. guess I should of did that first.. damn..

Get out of the car. Guy driving a big boat.. like bigger then my backyard.

"You didn't see me coming?", he says.

"Nope.. didn't even look"

We look at the cars.. my passenger door is dented right in.

"Well..", he says, "My car doesn't even have a scratch. What so you suggest we do about this?"

"I don't care. My car is not worth the hassle."

"Fair Enough" and he extends out his hand to shake. I shake his hand. He gets in his car and takes off.

.. hmm now when I think of it .. I wonder if he had a dead body in his trunk.
