we are now dancing with the stars

We got a couple of dance pads and the "dancing with the stars" game for our ps2. It's pretty fun. It gets us on our feet. Hopefully this will keep me going till I can afford a Wii.

The kids seem to enjoy it, even though they are not following the song correctly. Now hopefully I can still get a used copy of DDR. (and no .. I am not talking about Colin's son .. hahahaha)

After we shut the game off, it just so happened that the real dancing with the stars was on TV and Harley was blown away... "HEY!! THAT IS THE REAL GAME DADDY!!"

No more sex in the city

Leanne and I finished watching Sex and the City tonight. Not to bad. We watched 6 seasons in approx 2 months. Very addictive show. I enjoyed it a lot.

Thought I will have to admit. I was not impressed with Mr. Big's actual name when we found out what it was in the finale. They so could of had a better name for him. Didn't suit in our opinion.

But hey. Now that is out of the way. We are now going to take on 4400.

I am quite disappointed that there is no more Sex and the City. Though I am now excited to see the movie when it comes in the theatres in a month or so.

Penis Puppets

My wife went to see Puppetry of the Penis last night with my mom ans sis.

Unfortunately they didn't have any T-shirts. But she did get me a DVD! I guess she wants me to try some. HAHAHA .. yeah right. I don't even think I can stretch Silly Putty like that

I guess my buddy John was front row center at the show with his wife. Sounded he got picked on a bit. It would have been funny to have been there I guess.

Congrats out to Daelynn & Rob on thier new baby that was born this morning at 5:35am
this morning.

William David Green
7lb 3oz
not sure of length.

I don't have a picture as of yet and have not been able to see the little tyke since I will be working all day and Leanne will be out this evening. Not to mention I still have to see Daxton.

It's a crazy baby party around here!

It was crazy. I woke up this morning to my daughter and then the phone rings. Daelynn's on the phone saying: "Hey Gil, hows it goin'? I didn't wake you up did I?"
"No. That's ok I was just tending to Talya ... (blah blah)
.. now as fast as my brain works, it still took me quite a while to realize that it is 7am in the morning and why the hell would she be calling me. at this time.
"You didn't have your baby did you?"
"Actually yes I did"

And she sounded great! I guess the baby is ok and everything was awesome. I will likely post a picture when I take one or see one myself.

feeling blup

I had a hard time to get the will power to do anything today. Feeling sick to my stomach and didn't want to leave the bed at all.

.. maybe it's the fact that the dentist is coming..

Nah .. who am I kiddin'. I know whats bothering me and no amount of medication is going to fix me of this state.

Time for an oil change.

Speaking of oil change. Took the van in for one in the late afternoon and got an excuse to see my sisters new car. She hasn't got it yet because they have some stuff that they need to do to it still. Harley felt bad for my sister so he lent her his yellow monster truck that he got from the show to her till she gets it. Good kid. Has a heart.

..unfotunately later in the evening he realized that he wouldn't be getting his truck back. I guess he will have to sleep with one of his other cars. HAHAHA

da weekend

The last few days have been fairly active

Friday night
- Leanne and I sent to the 1st annual Taboo Sex Show here in regina. I think I will go again.
- Went for beer with Lincoln, Christine, Scott and Bert. I was good to see them again. Don't seem them enought

- Tried to attack the laundry for my wife during the day. I suck at housework. I don't deserve her.
- Had a good talk with Colin today. I am really proud of him. He sounds like he he taken on the daddy role very well. And he sounds like a really proud daddy too. It made me want to have a third child myself.
- Took Harley to the monster truck show with my friend Dallas and his son. I swear, there were moments there where Harley might as well have been at a rock show, screaming and yelliing doing the infamous Dio finger hand single when the trucks would drive over something. YYYEEEEAAAAHHHHHH!!! I dont know which was worse for me .. the loudness or the fumes. I definately got high and had a killer headache in the evening. The main thing though is that Harley loved it! Harley got a yellow monster truck toy from the show. He got yellow because it was the color of auntie's new car.

Sunday (today)
- Leanne had to work during the day.
- Took the kids to gymnastics this morning by myself. Rob and Daelynn I am sure had a good laugh at me while I ran around like a chicken with it's head cut off after my daughter.
- Harley had a birthday party to go to and I felt like a heel because when I took him there I forgot to bring the birthday present. Just when I thought that was bad enough.. I forgot again when I went to pick him up. Harley was not impressed with me at all. Harley will get to take the gift to his friend tomorrow at school.

All in all. They weekend just came an went.

4 more sleeps..

Harley has been counting down the days till the Monster Spectacular show. Every morning he has been waking up and saying, like today for example.. "4 more sleeps and I get to see the monster truck movie"

I think it's gonna blow his mind.

... and his ears.

sometimes things are too damn cute.

Did you ever notice that when there is something so damn cute you just think it is unlawful and you have to do something in order to balance it out. Most of you may be familiar with the scenareo of the baby that is so cute that you want to eat it.

Well .. I saw a picture of my friends niece today that was so damn cute that I wanted to take it.. squeeze it and kick it like a hacky sack!

It's amazing how many people think that is offensive!

attack of the bears.

Harley and Talya started Gymnastics today. They had a blast. I am glad we enrolled them. Talya started "Baby Bears" and Harley is now in the "Gym Bear 2" class. In Talya's class, one of the parents has to go along with them throughout the procedure. I guess Taly kept Leanne on her feet and got a workout herself. I dare not joke about it though because next week is my turn since Leanne has to work.

Where is the line when it comes to Art?

Now I am not a huge animal activist or anything .. and hell I don't even own a dog for fear of what my alergies may do .. but I can't help but feel for this. Starving Artists is one thing .. but starving Dogs? .. what the hell?

I came across this in facebook, but I decided to post it here. I couldn't help but feel for the poor dogs.

In 2007, Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, a so called artist, took an abandoned dog from the streets, tied him to a very short rope to a wall in an art gallery, and left a kettle of food on the other side of the room, beyond his reach, and left him there to slowly die of hunger and thirst.The so-called artist of such cruelty and the visitors of the gallery of art watched the agony of this animal. The dog finally died of famine, surely after a painful, absurd and incomprehensible torture.The prestigious Centralamerican Biennial of Art decided that this horrible act committed by this guy was art, and Guillermo Vargas Habacuc has been invited to repeat his cruel actions in said Biennial in 2008.If you go to this website there is a petition to try to stop this from happening again. Also links to the previous 'art work'.

For non-Spanish speakers: the next 2 categories that you must fill out following your email is: 1) city; 2) countryNOTE: I have warned on various occasions to maintain civility to your fellow group members and to keep the environment within the ambit of the group's objective: animal rights and awareness. Everyone has their own point of view and they have a right to express it. However the discussion and comments have escalated to name calling and attacks against individuals, cultures, countries etc. After various warnings being met with outright violations, I have decided to disable the wall. I apologize for any inconveniences or disappointment this may have caused to the rule-abiding members.

I wanna shoot the whole day down.

I am having a usual monday today. Monday's are kinda useless, except as a transfer point to Tuesday.

But then again. I should respect the Monday. Because if it wasnt this day, one of my all time favorite songs wouldn't exist.

Pic-a-Pop vs. The Pop Shoppe

I went into Brandi's (my "local" corner store) and I noticed that they now have Pic-a-Pop for sale! I nearly flipped. Unfortunately thought it is not at the same price as I remember. I got a bottle of my favorites, Black Cherry and Blue Razzberry and I was stunned to find out I was paying 2 bucks each! I still enjoyed them though. The black cherry tasted how I remember it, but was lighter in color. Before it used to roughly the same color as cherry coke.

But when I was looking into more information on the internet. I came across something even cooler! The Pop Shoppe looks like there back as well! Now I liked Pop Shoppe more as a kid then pic-a-pop, but I haven't came across any here yet. Hopefully I will sometime soon thou.

Which one do you perfer? Pic-a-Pop? or The Pop Shoppe?

..who is more fool .. who is more fool ..

.. the fool or the fool who follows the fool.

I guess I am the fool really.. since I didn't prank anyone yesterday. I have never been one for that stuff. Though,I would have liked to take colgate toothpaste and put it on the chalk board for the teacher in elementary school, but .. I never did.

Speaking of toothpaste. I saw something funny on the tube of crest toothpaste that I never noticed before when I was brushing my teeth last night. It said this on the back of the tube:

"For best results, squeeze tube from the bottom and flatten as you go up"

We definately have become a nation of idiots.

Speaking of nation of idiots and fools like myself. I thought this was real.
