Let me take you down, cause I’m going to…

“I am going to have my own show. I was perfectly happy being an IT person, but then I decided I needed to bring underprivileged chimps to a sanctuary… and give them guns. Escape to chimp battle eden.”

I wonder if they would be able to grasp it. Only one way to find out.

On another note I think I should insert another first name infront of the rest of my names: ‘Chimp.’


Rosie you hussy!

Juciest Street ever last night!


After a failed attempt at getting with the ever dreamy Liam


In any case:

Rosie = 16

Liam = dreamy

Rosie = fail

John = teacher dude

Rosie = success

And I have a feeling John might get with HER MOM too, so I have to decide here. Who is my hero. Rosie or John?

LIAM! [sorry Keith if you saw this picture…]





and gross Carla, this one just cracked me up. But I thought it was of Rosie at first which would be so appropriate. She is hilariously bad at acting, all of her expressions look like she just got back from a collagen injection/boob job.

I heard this Voltaire quote yesterday and I can’t quite remember it, and I can’t find it, and it is driving me insane.

Damn Jeopardy.


we’ve got eyes that leave us in places we don’t see.

June 6, 2008

i was in such a good mood today. so looking forward to the weekend. now, somehow, i am really grumpy and kind of feel like crying in actual strange fact. i am generally not prone to such mood swings of yesteryear, thank god. perhaps it is the release after the trauma of a good old waxing. perhaps it is other people’s grumpiness rubbing off on me. perhaps it is admitted frustrations just beyond my control. possible need to just get over certain things. a strange feeling… pessimistic for the first time in quite a while. i guess no one can maintain constant optimism.

in any case, hopefully my friends alcohol and marijuana will cheer me up. yes, they always do. off to the weed room aka my bathroom. i really do have to take pictures of this place sometime soon.

i am planning a very low key weekend, internetting and relaxing and maybe going for a walk, reading my book which is intriguing beyond compare [i plan to share some of the passages i find more interesting later] and having a sweet sweet coronation street party on sunday due to [update: smoked weed have drink now feel slightly better] stupid dumb hockey being over and the street being once every weekday again but still getting them on sunday so we get TEN this upcoming week. yes, i am always going to write about coronation street, insert the name of a show that those others than the elderly [slash british] watch if you please. in addition we started watching jeeves and wooster recently which i quite enjoy actually, even though i kind of wanted to hate the rogue doctor who plays against the rules we shall not name.

here are some neat things my friend cissa came across while working… she works at a gallery in california basically looking for cool stuff all day [i think…] what a crazily awesome job.

as someone did mention, it is kind of obnoxious how it is presuming to choose how you step, but still neat.

They fold flat like a phonebook, and have magnets at each end of the “accordion” so they can attach to themselves and make a round stool/table, or they can attach to each other and make long benches or snakey structures throughout someone’s home. They can also support the weight of a human body and it makes them the perfect space savers ever. The white tyvek pieces are made from spun polycarbonate fibers (the same stuff that the USPS priority mail envelopes are made from) and are tearproof and waterproof as well.

i can’t even do yoga this weekend cause i am not supposed to sweat after waxing!


‘i am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.’

May 20, 2008

finally watched “the root of all evil?” on the weekend. i like how they throw that question mark in there for no reason. of course i enjoyed it, although not actually as much as “a brief history of disbelief.” although richard dawkins does come off a tad arrogant, i think it is completely rightfully so.

here are a few of my favourite moments [quotes from richard dawkins unless otherwise specified]:

I want to examine… the process of non-thinking called faith.

I’m a scientist and I believe there is a profound contradiction between science and religious belief. There is no well demonstrated reason to believe in God, and I think the idea of a divine creator belittles the elegant reality of the universe. The 21st century should be an age of reason, yet irrational militant faith is back on the march. Religious extremism is implicated in the world’s most bitter and unending conflicts. In Britain, even as we live in the shadow of holy terror, our government wants to restrict our freedom to criticise religion. Science we are told should not tread on the toes of theology. But why should scientists tiptoe respectfully away? The time has come for people of reason to say, enough is enough. Religious faith discourages independent thought: it’s divisive and it’s dangerous. Isn’t this the beginning of that slippery slope that leads to young men with rucksack bombs on the tube?

If you want to experience the medieval rituals of faith nobody does it better than the Catholics. At Lourdes in southern France the assault on the senses appeals to us not to think, not to doubt, not to probe. And if we can retain our faith against the evidence in the teeth of reality, the more virtuous we are.

People like to say that faith and science can live together side by side but I don’t think they can. Science is a discipline of investigation and constructive doubt, questing with logic, evidence and reason to draw conclusions. Faith by stark contrast demands a positive suspension of critical faculties. Science proceeds by setting up hypothesises, ideas, or models and then attempts to disprove them. Religion is about turning untested belief into unshakable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.

Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.

Ted Haggard: We fully embrace the scientific method, as American Evangelicals. And we think, as time goes along, as we discover more and more facts, that we’ll learn more and more about how God created the heavens and the earth.

RD: The scientific method clearly demonstrates that the world is four and a half billion years old. I mean, do you accept that?

Ted Haggard: Yeah, you know what you’re doing, is you are, you are accepting some of the views that are accepted in some portions of the scientific community as fact, where in, in fact, your grandchildren might listen to the tape of you saying that and laugh at you.

RD: Do you want to bet?

Ted Haggard: Sometimes it’s hard for a human being to study the ear, or study the eye, and think that happened by accident.

RD: I beg your pardon, did you say by accident?

Ted Haggard: Yeah.

RD: What do you mean, by accident?

Ted Haggard: That the eye just formed itself somehow.

RD: Who says it did?

Ted Haggard: Well, some evolutionists say it did.

RD: Not a single one that I’ve ever met.

Ted Haggard: Really.

RD: Really. You obviously know nothing about the subject of evolution.

Ted Haggard: Or maybe you haven’t met the people I have.

If God wanted to forgive our sins, why not just forgive them? Who’s God trying to impress? Presumably himself, since He is judge and jury as well as execution victim.

Oh, but of course, the story of Adam and Eve was only ever symbolic, wasn’t it? Symbolic? So Jesus had himself tortured and executed for a symbolic sin by a nonexistent individual.

We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.

For many people, part of growing up is killing off the virus of faith with a good strong dose of rational thinking. But if an individual doesn’t succeed in shaking it off, his mind is stuck in a permanent state of infancy, and there is a real danger that he will infect the next generation.

A formative influence on my undergraduate self was the response of a respected elder statesmen of the Oxford Zoology Department when an American visitor had just publicly disproved his favourite theory. The old man strode to the front of the lecture hall, shook the American warmly by the hand and declared in ringing, emotional tones: “My dear fellow, I wish to thank you. I have been wrong these fifteen years.” And we clapped our hands red.

Steven Weinberg: Religion is an insult to human dignity. Without it, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, it takes Religion.

i know a lot of people could argue with this, and usually i would not assert my ‘opinions’ as being correct over those of others. however, i really appreciate being reminded of my true atheist nature every once in a while… otherwise i forget and drift through life weakly agnostic. why not think we are correct when all scientific fact discovered only proves us as painfully right? of course i don’t think we know everything there is to know, but i somehow doubt that the new evidence we learn will disagree with everything we have complied up until now.

i am also reading “the dragons of eden: speculations on the evolution of human intelligence” by carl sagan, which i came across at a $1 book sale last weekend. it is really excellent so far.


oh, think twice…

“i’m gon’ make you a mix tape. do you like phil collins?”

“i have two ears and a heart, don’t i?”

i always wanted to hate 30 rock, but it can be funny. which compared to most things out there these days is pretty high praise.

Dave, there comes a time in every friendship when you have to say, ‘I never liked you, get lost.’ -Bill McNeal

and oh, hey, it’s almost 4.30! i love when that happens.


fuck you, playoffs.

i want to say that coronation street is all the sweeter when you have to wait ALL week to get your sunday five-pack. i want to say that i have a lot of self-control and don’t just burn through them all in one day.

well, we have two left to last us until next sunday…. and knowing us we will watch them tonight.

damn you hockey! i have never hated you so much.

also: nothing is worse than having to spend the day in a mind-numbing young drivers classroom on the most beautiful and sunny day of the year so far! hopefully there are more of those to come soon.

also also: i just had my first ever meeting that i had called, to discuss some issues with an employee. it is weird being a “boss.” i have been so stressed out about having to do this, as i really want to be an ally to this person, the only other female in the work place. luckily she seems to take direction very well, and does not take it personally! thank goodness. it went so well, i think i will call meetings more often! ha.


mommy, i think i saw that girls bare arm!

Now the PTC is railing against reality competition America’s Next Top Model. The New York Post reports that the PTC has filed an indecency complaint with the FCC over the show’s March 26 episode, which featured a fully nude model posing for pictures in bed, Marilyn Monroe-style.

i mean, i hear where they are coming from. nothing makes me think of the current state of societal degradation than…. marilyn monroe?

Parents and families are fed up with such blatant and continued disregard for decency standards.

crazy idea: if your children are young enough to be permanently scarred by a nude silhouette, maybe you should be supervising them instead of plunking them down in front of the tv with a remote in their hand. fuck, put on baby einsteins or something if you really have better things to do with your time.

i realize i hardly offer an unbiased opinion on the subject. however, i really do not see the huge issue with nudity. you can see more indecency if you head down to the beach on a warm summer day. clearly nearly nude glistening bodies in the flesh will make our children sex-crazed murderous perverts even more than seeing a flesh coloured blur of pixels on a television screen.

run for your lives!!!

i am glad i live in canada, where there are less uptight over-protective censorship crazy assholes.

and that is why all our children turn into dangerously disturbed adults.


invasion 1

April 10, 2008

i had another invid dream for some reason last night. i haven’t even watched robotech since around the last time i dreamed of them. i think they are just a general embodiment of a large, powerful, evil and mysterious force. once again, we were in the forest, which was dangerous territory. we had to get back within the city walls to attain relative safety. this time, it was the lovely choice between committing suicide before the invid came to invade, or getting vaporized by their imposed apocalypse. in grade 10 or so i had a dream about getting vaporized in the apocalypse. it was pretty unpleasant, an overwhelming sadness at the impending doom gripped me and once it arrived, well i think that is the closest i have come to feeling death. so as to avoid this unpleasant situation this time around, i was trying to advocate the suicide route. people were really dawdling around, not wanting to decide. finally i was like ‘well it’s too late now guys, good job. fire storm it is.’ around this point i became aware, not fully that it was a dream, but that i had power to control the destiny of the story. i thought ‘it’s far-fetched, but maybe i can just say that the invid became nice and decided to be friends instead of obliterating civilization.’ and it worked! then we had giant robotic friends. i never did fully trust them though, those shady mechanized alien units.

why don’t you show the bunnies anymore? on easter they used to show a non-stop video of bunnies frolicking about. my cat was mesmerized by the sight.

bunny tv
[a few tvs/lifetimes ago.]

since we purchased a ridiculously insanely huge tv on the weekend i can only imagine how my cat would react. alas, they have switched over to the not as easter-ish theme of goats for the past couple of years!

wii is so much better on the large screen. suddenly we are really good at super swing golf. i can’t wait to have brittani and kevin over and play DOUBLES TENNIS. along with two extra controllers i think we also need to purchase a larger living room.

it was supposed to be nice this weekend and i was actually going to force myself to attain my lofty goal of playing tennis. i think this summer i might take some lessons, so as a] not to suck horribly anymore b] to be forced to play tennis. also, i think i will be starting a yoga class in april [yes, you heard right….] along with young drivers of course.

we went to look at scooters this weekend. the one i had envisioned myself purchasing was actually too large and imposing for me. the vino is much, much more “amber-sized” [if you know me in real life this term will make perfect sense.] i hope i have the confidence to drive a scooter once i have the skills down. i am going to finance it all by myself which shouldn’t be exciting to me but it is.

anyway, i had a pretty nice weekend. i really enjoy the fact that me and brittani can go a while without seeing each other and then pick up with ease just where we left off [even without the aid of alcohol.]


photoshop: least intuitive software ever?

March 19, 2008

i know nobody answers my questions, but why am i having the most ridiculously hard time resizing a layer in photoshop? no online help is aiding me.

i was about to make an aids joke but i hate to reference south park.

also: is it still a simpsons quote i can never, ever use [but always wants to come out of my mouth] if i put a question mark at the end? i really wish the simpsons didn’t have to destroy itself so, so badly. to the point where i am not sure if i can ever watch classic episodes again. [i definitely can never say never.] for the past i don’t know how many years i have been watching a few minutes here and there [of the new episodes], and there is just nothing resembling comedy i can find.


don’t be ridiculous!

nothing like turning on young and the restless, my inherited tv vice, for my bi-annual viewing, and seeing bronson pinchot has joined the cast.

i had every intention of posting my pictures from the weekend but when i got to work i realized i only got around to uploading half of them last night. too many rum and cokes do not an efficient blogger make.

so for now i will just share my joy in watching magnum pi.i from the beginning. i finally managed to show keith this is a quality show. it’s all about the plot, nothing to do with magnum in short shorts… i assure you. [if you believe this you are about as gullible as i am.]


magnum car


Magnum was the first mass media character to flat out say, “We lost the war…” in Vietnam.

yes, finally the liam connor dream i desired. [well sort of.] me and him and his brother paul were making a very dramatic escape through an urban setting to avoid an asian gang that was after us. we were trying to figure out what movie hero would be the best to aid us. i was saying “we could go the route of spiderman or batman and all that crap… or maybe that guy from the matrix?” as i have not seen the matrix it turned out after we called them their style or projectile cyber-fighting involved too many innocent casualities. there was mention of us having been intimate and although that didn’t provide quite the “mindfuck” i had desired, at least i know my dream-self is good for it and can pull that shit.



oh smurfy day.

January 14, 2008

happy smurf/schtroumpf/pitufo/schlumpf/etc. day.

today is the 50th anniversary of the smurfs!

i am going to have to kill someone if they come out with a new smurfs franchise.

oh no…

To mark 50 years of Smurfdom, organizers are planning everything from a 3-D animation feature film expected to be released next year to new comic book collections and a remastered release of the popular 1980s television animated series, Peyo’s family said.

i can almost guarantee you a cg ‘baby’ will appear on my desktop in a year or two’s time.

but he sucked bad enough in animated format.

ass puzzle
i do find ass puzzles far superior to the regular variety.
