Today has been relatively uneventful.Just the usual of school and such. I have done nothing productive today other then study. Oh I drew a picture for the hell of it. I have been feeling a bit lazy as of late. It just seams that I don’t get anything done in a day O well I think that I am going to start drawing a picture, or at least work on one, everyday just to hone those skills and such Today’s MP3 is Tori Amos – Left Of The Middle. for no other reason then it is a good song. Well off to pick up Miranda from work.
So it has been a few days since I have posted and I have nothing to blame this on except my own laziness :) My Midterms went well well My Art history one not so well but good enough I think. The Sociology one kicked I bet I kicked ass on that one. I went for my orientation at Value Village and Well that was also cool I mean I think that I will really enjoy working there. the people that I will be working with look pretty cool and my Boss Tara also seams quite cool. I am really stoked about the 50% off on stuff It will be a big adventure to Value Village when I have cash again. :) I am working on my Drama essay today and cleaning up the desk a little bit. other then that not much is going on here. The Cam is still down because I am still looking into other alternatives for my server. My link of the day is http://www.wakinglifemovie.com/this looks like a cool movie and I will see it at my first opportunity.
So Today it looks like all that studying last night may have paid off. The info is still some what stuck in my brain as it really should be :) We are going out again this eve to do some more studying although this time it would appear that there is a few more people that are going to attend. From the sounds of it Robin, Lesley and Shannon May come out so we should get a bunch done Ya. Other then that my drama assignment has been pushed back again to Monday, which really rocks, because that is something that I havenâ€™t had the opportunity to much on. And the art history is looking a little less intimidating the it had before. I am still at school right now, and I may be here for a while I donâ€™t know. I have no inkling to go home cause M that dear that she is had packed me a bit of a lunch so I am not the least bit hungry. Although, I donâ€™t really know what I will do here. If I was to go home I most likely would be doing stuff on the computer that Wouldnâ€™t really be beneficial to studying LOL Any way this is really not that beneficial either so I will get to doing something else.
Pure Craziness I just got back from studying for Sociology at Keegan’s for like 6 hours My head is so fucked up right now :) Shannon came and we did like four chapters of intense sociology and I mean a lot of this stuff is stuff that I had never seen before. Oh well it went well though we got a lot covered and such. Cory and Natasha came at the end for a quick cup O coffee and such so that was entertaining other then that there hasnâ€™t really been anything else that has happened today. Word of the day is “Stuff” He he any way off to bed. Oh I got the job at Value Village I start on Thursday, so that is cool. I think that it will be a really cool job the people that I have talked to seam really fun as well So I think that there is some fun to be had.
Well It is Tuesday and Today is looking to be a lot like the rest of the week. More School and more studying. I have two midterms on Thursday. Art history and Sociology. I am a little scared of these mid terms cause they are the first ones of my collage career. I am sure that I will do just fine on both but it unnerves me none the less. So Miranda And I had a bit of a fight today. The thing is I am not really sure what it was about. I was really bitchy this morning cause I didnâ€™t have any smokes and I got mad at a cab driver that was being a bit of a prick whilst driving. Then when she got of the car at work she yelled at me and slammed the door to the car. I donâ€™t really know what it was all about. Crazy times. I have a job interview at the Infamous Value Village today. WOW!! You are all saying that is cool you get to get cool clothes at cheaper then already cheap. Neat eh. I mean I know that it is Value Village and not IBM or MICROSFT but I am none the less sort of excited about it. Also I was at coffee last night studying when I ran into Eli, and he steered me to a place that might be looking for some assistance in digitizing a whole lot a poems and Prose and things as such. www.readtear.ca. The site is really cool and the project looks equally neat. So I fired of an email last night to them saying that I am looking to assist in some way. We will see how that goes. Any way I should go and have a Cig before I go to class so I will yak again at noon.
Oh Also the Webserver and the Web Cam are down for a While I hope to have them back up soon.
Holy bloody Cow This weekend was just a tad busy. J Saturday Was Filming At Cory’s And Natasha’s Place. That was really cool but I was there all day LOL I then Came home and Rendered the files out to give them back to him but the quality wasn’t the greatest so I am doing it again LOL It is still Rendering as we Speck this Monday Morning Its Been going for like 6-7 hours LOL. Oh what is this Sound I here Sounds Like my coffee in finished being made………..Ahhhhhhh Coffee WOW I have said it once and I will say it again. Coffee is really good and whom ever Invented it Whomever discovered that when you take a bunch of the beans and Grind them up and pour hot water though them I a person that I Applaud.
Any Way Morning routine time is taking over so I will write after school.
Hey Hey today has been quite uneventful meaning not much happened. I went to school and suchas per usual. Picked up the Pepper Kit (Lights) from FAVA and dropped them off at Cory’s Place today. We are going to spend the day filming more tomorrow, so that will be quite entertaining I am sure. I am really enjoying this that is for sure. So today I am quite full of Energy Miranda and I went for a drive around town tonight and I spent all the time wanting to listen to some sorta punkish stuff So today’s Song of the day is I Like Fucking by Bikini Kill Roy My brother in Law came into town today so he is here hangin out before he is of to a party. Well I am being a little rude writing this now so I will sign off for now..
So I took a break from studying tonight and I watched a movie with the Wife. We watched The Spitfire Grill You can read about it here.
All I Have to say is that man is that a good movie. I really liked it even if it is one of these make you feel Good/Bad flicks. :) Today was a little less hectic the yesterday that is for sure, although I am feeling a little guilty cause I didn’t get anything done really. I guess I need some time to relax once in a while but I just cant help and feel guilty. We ordered Chinese food in tonight and ate that whilst watching the movie. So I would recommend this movie to anyone really I would. So I guess that counts as the link of the day as well Eh! Well I guess the movie had its poor points but they all do, but the good far out ways the bad. Any Way I am off to bed so I will talk at you later.
Holy Cow was Yesterday a busy Day. I mean it was busy enough that I didn’t get to post here at all. Well the day started with me getting up at one of those god awful hours again. This time it was 8:00AM Crazy eh? Then I went out to FAVA and picked up the camera, lights and all the equipment Tool them to Cory’s Place and then off to school I was bound. From there I when back to Cory’s Place and Filmed. This job is gonna be the best I think. The Money is one thing but to be actually doing the filming Will be far more worth it. I am going to start making plans on SS6 soon as well. That should be quite cool. I am going to fund this new endeavor out of TFA money. That will be quite cool indeed. So today is looking to be about as busy. This morning I AGAIN Got up at that god awful hour of 8:30AM and went over to Cory’s to do the Tear Down. Back off to FAVA I was. Then to school. Miranda decided that she wasn’t going to go to jasper today as she had planned. I feel bad because I know that she really wanted to, and I am sure that there is reasons other then the ones that she said why she isn’t going. But Oh well what can you do I can’t force her to go and she has said that she will go next week. I really think that it would be really good for her to go and be by herself for a while. Any way I am off to class now. Later.
So I am off to bed cause I am beat. I haven’t much to say about the day that hasn’t already been said. I am going to set up link a week here just cause. So this weeks link is www.cjsr.com This is the indie radio station that I am almost guaranteed to be listening to if I am listing to the radio. Goodnight and once again Good Bye Mr. Dressup. We love you.
I Think that I am going to have to sleep a little bit more because I am totally beat today. Oh neat I just figured out how to get my GMMC email that is fun :) I am in my last class and I am waiting for it to start. so I thought that I would give this a blurb Opps Class has starting
So I get a call from my wife and she tells me that the only man that I would ever consider to be a hero has died. I didn’t know him personally and he wouldn’t have had a clue about who I was or even who my parents were. But I knew him, as did almost everybody else who grew up watching the CBC. The man how talked to puppets and the freaky owl on the wall. Some one
that wasn’t afraid to play make believe and dress in drag. The man that could create an elaborate castle out of a bunch of simple materials such as construction paper and a bit of glue. Ernie Coombs, or as many know him Mr. Dressup, died today! You will be remembered forever in our hearts and in our minds. When we think about what kind of people we are today you can be sure You! Mr. Dressup! had a part. Mr. Coombs, you helped raise many generations of children including mine and I will forever be in awe of the Man with a thousand costumes and a picture for everything. Thanks for everything we will miss you.
I Will Miss You!
My Wife also had a few words to say.
Ernie Coombs came to Canada in 1963 to work with his friend Fred Rogers at CBC. When Mr. Rogers moved back to the United States, CBC had a children’s slot that needed filling. On the advice of Mr. Rogers, Ernie Coombs took over the slot and Mr. Dressup was born in 1967. With his constant companions Casey and Finnegan, Mr. Dressup brought smiles and laughter to children for almost 30 years, until his retirement in 1996. When Judith Lawrence, Casey and Finnegan’s puppeteer, retired in 1989, the puppets retired with her but Mr. Dressup carried on with his new friends, who I never got to know. His last show taped on Valentines Day, 1996, with little fanfare. Reruns continue today, as children still watch, as they did 30 years ago, to the man with the tickle trunk and the own on the wall. When Casey and Finnegan retired, I was saddened by the departure of 2 puppets I had grown up with and grown to love. Today I cry as I say goodbye to Mr. Dressup, who passed away this morning, after a lifetime of making children like me smile.
Thank you for everything, Mr. Dressup, and I miss you.
So today started out mostly uneventful with the alarm clock going off at the unheard of hour of 7:30AM. I mean really what would or could posses an individual to decide that this is that good hour to start business little loan consciousness. (I am not really a morning person just in case anyone needed to ask.) The worst part about mornings I think is the fact that I don’t usually do anything till at least 10:00 Am anyway so why not get out of bed at 9:56AM and start the day on a good foot. For the odd instance that I am getting up early I usually just sit around and get increasingly more tired, while I wait for stuff like my day to happen. It is a weird thing really I mean regardless of what time it is that I have gone to bed I have a hard time getting up early. For example last night I went to bed at around 4 AM and got up at 7:30 that is about three and a half hours sleep and today I am dead. Now take the scenario of me going to bed around 6AM and getting up at 9AM That is much more effective for me really. Well maybe it is all in my head. Who knows? So any ways back to the reason that I got up at 7:30 this morning. The Golf needed new tires put on the front. So the only time that we could feasibly get this in at the tire shop was at 8:00 AM. Yup you heard me right 8:00AM!!! Ok fine I will just zip down there we get them to put the tires on the car and I am home by 9:00AM sounds good right. Make it seem almost like it didn’t really happen it was all just a dream, at least this is the plan. So we get down to the Canadian Tire to have the tire changing action take place. Miranda was all smart and phoned ahead and made an appointment and such, so we thought that this was going to be painless. J Well that is where we were wrong. So Up to the front counter of the Service counter we stroll and there we had the distinct displeasure of talking to Steve the counter person. Not in Steve’s defense he wasn’t really that clever which there is nothing really wrong with. I mean there are not very cleaver people all over and they are all right but our interactions with Steve just basically set the Canadian Tire adventure of on the wrong foot. The first indication we had that Steve wasn’t really clever was the fact that after telling him our phone number 3 times he still got it incorrect. This resulted in him half making a service under another person for a car that we didn’t have. After that was straightened out, we then moved on to the next somewhat seemingly impassable hurdle in our transaction, the license plate number. Now Steve asked what our license plate number was, and we replied with you I don’t really know. “Oh” he says ok and continues on with the service order. About 20 seconds later he asks again “What is the License plate number” and we told him again that we didn’t know. “Oh” he says again and continues. Then again he asks so what was the license plate number “again”? Again! We hadn’t given it to him to begin with, so how is it that he would be asking for it again? So after a conversation that consisted of us explaining to Steve that we still didn’t know the plate number of the car and him asking for it a few more times we had the work order signed and we were in business. Now again in defense of Steve he wrote on the top of the work order in large quite legible writing “8:00AM Appointment” and “Customer waiting.” One would think that this would be a note to the service technician or one in control of the work order. BUT as we found out it was most likely an offering to the “Tire Repair God” of sorts because I really don’t think that anyone else of the mere mortal varity was really reading it. In other words the “Simple” tire repair took almost exactly one hour and forty-five minutes. At least the is how long it took us to ask twice about the repair and bitch about it twice. What was the hold up you ask? Well it would appear that when we entered the building today there was a sign on my forehead that said “CONSUMER”. They were writing up quotes for repairs on the car that had been done 2 months ago. And where fine when I drove the car into the shop this morning. AHHHH Well that is my rant on that I am just upset that it took Two hours and 15 min to do a repair that I used to do in 20 min. Crazy stuff really again in defense of Steve, he might be quite a clever individual and it was just the morning thing getting to me. I don’t know Oh well so the Golf is in tip top shape and the annoying rattle that was there is now gone J (Separating tires tend to do that) Well Thats that.
Well Here it is 3 in the morning and I am done the Sociology Assignment that is due for tommorro…… Opps I guess today :) I don’t know how good it is I will read it over in the morning and see. I think I am going to crash a little early this eve cause I have to take the golf in to get some new tires on it first thing in the morning. Curses on Miranda for making the appointment so bloody early (Hehe JK) but it is early oh well we will see how well I function in the morning LOL I haven’t really decided if I am going to let anyone know that I am doing this Web blog thing yet, I mean this is a journal of mine and everything yet I sorta wanna let Miranda and others know about it I don’t know cause if I know that there is other people that read it I might not put stuff in here that I otherwise would so I am at a loss as to what I should do, but I will continue to write it as though it is for other people to read it until I decide if I want people to have this much incite into me and all.
On a different note I have done absolutely nothing on EMILY today and I am feeling a little bad about that. For those that don’t know EMILY is the latest film project that I am working on. Read more about it here www.emilythemovie.com I have said that I am going to do a little bit each and everyday and well today I haven’t oh well. Coffee Was fun Drew came and told us boundless stories about how much Acid he has done in the last few weeks (He is a Funny Guy) and C&N showed up to that was neat. We are getting ready for our film project on wed. Should be cool I am sure. Anyway I have a Cig hanging out of my mouth right now waiting to be smoked so I will sign off for Sept 17 2001 with a link. http://www.redmeat.com/redmeat/2001-07-10/index.html
So I have this Sociology paper that is due for tomorrow, and I have just now decided that all the work that I have done on it is total crap and I hate it and I have just deleted it from my computer because it sucked so bad. All gone not that it was worth anything anyway :) So tonight I will be finding a new article (part of the project) and doing it over again. AHHHH. I am mostly just pissed off today because I found out that I have a lower mark in a class then I thought I would and that I only got 16 out of 25 on a drama quiz that is worth about point one percent of my final mark, so I am most likely being really unreasonable but i am absolutely furious with my self over this I mean i should have had a way better mark then that it should be perfect cause I know that I can do it. Maybe I am a little to hard on myself but I have convinced my self that I am going to get 4’s (My school is on a 4 point system so 95% to 100%) right across that board and that this maybe something that I can do. when really it probably isn’t. Just kinda down about it all. O well I guess that is that. On the other hand my search for a job is looking up I got a call from a call center that Miranda applied to for me tonight so that is looking good. I go down there tomorrow with a full resume and check that out. as well I applied at the Value Village today. I hear that they are starving for people Well I am off downtown to pick up my wife and we are off for a quick coffee with our friend Drew at “The House Of Keegans” Oh how I love that place :) Well I will sign of for now I guess
Well I have the page up and running This is just something that I have thrown together but I am afraid that it will have to suffice for now. Not that I have any real plans of sending this url out to anyone or anything :). Any way there is so much to say about my self but I am not going to I will let the reader pick up there own impressions of me from reading this stuff that I write. I will however let the reader no what is going on in my day. It is my daily requirement to post at least once in any given day. Lately when I say that I am going to do something that seems to be true and I have been doing them. I will also try and post a link a day or a song a day kinda like my friend D does. So todays link is
Just a cartoon that I liked today. Well this is really neat actually I think that i will have a lot of fun with this as well. Well have to go now will talk later.
So well here it goes.. Everybody lately is talking, thinking, or are actually doing, is putting there journal on line. Well I thought I would give it a try you know just to see if this is something that I could do. I have said that I am going to keep a journal before and that never lasted more them 3 days so We will see here. I have been going though some big changes lately in my life and maybe this will help me keep track of them all and remember what’s going on today three years from now. Crazy Stuff any way . Well I am off to study that big bad books now so later.
