I don't know what the heck's going on, but I've been a magnet for sickness this year. I am currently suffering through cold #4 on the year, and I got sick for two days following my flu shot last week. I guess the lunch room at my place of work is just like the 'ol dorm at college: a petri dish for germs of all kinds... :(

Post #250: Brought To You By Your Local Russian Mob Syndicate Posing As Russian Borscht Joint!

For post #250, I got this: If you have strong stomach and don't mind pointy objects getting jabbed into people unthinkably sickening ways, go see Eastern Promises at your local movieplex. It's a movie about the Russian mafia in London, and ... I'm not spoiling it anymore than I already have.

Just be aware that it's rated 18A for a very good reason. Having said that, um, enjoy!

Gas Pains

The natural gas people were here today to re-align gas lines and move our meter outside. In that process, they have left a huge hole in our backyard ... that's gotta make Scott (my roommate who maintains the garden and yard) happy, eh?

When I have time this weekend, I'll write about my career trajectory to date, as I haven't blogged on that in a long while...

October = Late Fall in Alberta

Today I'm booking a car appointment to fix the air in my car (dead air sucks more than you'll ever know, even when it's not hot out) and to get winter tires put on my car. A little early you say, laughing? Not here in Northern Alberta. It snowed for the first time last year on October 28th, and the snow stuck around until April!

Global Warming? What's that??

(just kidding, I actually do care about Global Warming, just tryin' to be funny...!)
