Back Again With a Little Here and There...

Well, back again. Had some time off and got some rest, then plowed through another week. Still liking the new job, so that’s good, and really liking this extra time to myself I’m finally getting…

Formatted and rebuilt my hard drive as well. It was past due, as Windows was doing its usual bi-annual wonky “what the heck was that” breakdown. I gotta learn a new operating system. I figure Windows is only going to get worse, especially with Microsoft seemingly bent on making it continually more restrictive and troublesome for the user. I guess they want us to buy Windows, install it, then beg them to let us use our own software. It’d be one thing if the software was any good, but it’s pretty much crap and you have to go through all this anyway. I’ll have to learn something new and switch to just plain nuts instead of Microsoft’s version of mixed nuts…

Got to pause here and watch Letterman’s “Will it Float” segment…a case of Dubble Bubble gum taped shut…and it Floats!! Ah, fun…

Elsewhere, Keith Urban’s new single, Better Life, is a definite toe tapper. If that doesn’t get you moving a little bit or feeling a little better, you might want to check your pulse. He’s got a unique way of writing upbeat tunes that don’t come across as just fluff…

Picked up some groceries and noticed a picture in the tabloids in my walk through the checkout of Teri Hatcher, the current media darling and one of the stars of the TV show Desperate Housewives. I have no idea what the show is about or why it’s a hit as a I don’t watch it, but it was the picture that caught my eye. Maybe it was just the picture or maybe its real, but my word, she was skinny. It’s probably a good thing that being on TV adds 10 pounds, or nobody would be able to see her. Now I know why that show is one of the few broadcast in High Definition. They have to have that clarity just to see the stars of the show when they turn sideways…

Speaking of groceries, spreadable honey is really good. Almost like a candy treat for someone like me who can’t have much of the candy aisle. Good for you too…

And lastly – go see the movie Serenity! Original concept, top notch excellent writing, good action, funny lines, and a story and more importantly characters you actually care about. Can’t believe Fox was so stupid as to cancel the TV show Firefly, but at least they got a movie to the theatres to properly wrap it up. Stupid, Stupid Fox, but one excellent movie from Universal. Go see it, and tell all your friends…

Yes, spreadable honey is very good. I should get some again.

Watch out when you talk about it to Americans though. The name for it in Canada is often "Creamed Honey", but I get snickers when I type that online.

And if you're going to see the movie Serenity, hurry up before it disappears from theatres! It's already on its way out. At least around here.

What, already?! NO! Come on, people, get to the theatre and support Serenity! Fight the Alliance! Browncoats unite!!

Unfortunately, not enough people got how good this was, so this may be it for the Serenity crew. At least they got to go out with a bang...
