Currently completing my electrician apprenticeship, should be a journeyman by October if all goes well. The band is writing new material after having previously completed a 5 song EP/demo at Nimbus studios in Vancouver (check that out here, drop a friend request or a facebook 'like' if you dig it!).

Broken pipe flood #3 in just under 2 years of living here. They are finished re-piping the mains in our building, and now at least we have individual water shut-offs, however the pipes going into each unit are still old.

This one wasn't so bad, but it looks like it might force me to reno the kitchen now instead of later. I am going...

Painted our condo again yesterday... Everything is still in upheaval but its coming together now as we slowly put everything back in its place.

Same colour chip as last time (warm gray), but 3 shades lighter. It really brightened the place up and now we won't have to repaint when we sell the place either.

Never again.

Until the bedrooms.

Nothing like a clean car. Inside and out, I'd been meaning to give it a good clean for over a year. Finally done - wax, windows everything. It smells like grapes... from the OUTSIDE! That's some serious clean.

Starting school at the end of next month and then I will be looking for another company to work for when I get out. Not looking forward to it, but what can you do?

I've been feeling foggy and achy since last week when I got my tetanus booster, figured I picked up some flu going around until talking to someone else who has...

Bill C-51

If you're Canadian you've probably heard about this one recently. Seemingly everybody is up in arms claiming that the Bill will be nothing more than a power grab and an excuse for the government stormtroopers to ruin your day.

My first impression was that C-51 was probably a change for the better and those fighting it were either the alternative medicine...

Canada's free speech is under attack again by an uppity Muslim named Mohammed Elmasry, who much like the recent cartoon fiasco is using the Human Rights Commissions in BC and across Canada as a tool to censor and financially attack MacLean's magazine. Read the articles and draw your own conclusion, but bear in mind that whether it offends you or not you do...

accuser:

It's really hard to be a reasonable person in America these days, because you hear all this crazy talk coming from people running your own damn country and think to yourself, "Wow, I hope all the other countries aren't this screwed up." Then you learn that they are, just in different ways.

Somehow, people got the impression that you DO have a right to be protected from hurt feelings by the government. It's causing trouble. I'd love to get involved, but I'm in the wrong country.

Does anybody else find it annoying and slightly weird that the Discovery Channel shows programs about exorcisms and other paranormal crap? The shows are clearly biased, and I realize that Discovery has to bump ratings up but it's kind of deceiving.

I enjoy these shows on kind of a nostalgic and mindless level, but I could do without them on a science network.
elipsis:

i like watching those shows... blush
i watched them for two weeks straight when i was sickin bed... heh. blush confused

I believe I have successfully quit smoking. 26 days with only a handful of less-than-satisfying cigarettes, my habits are changing.

Advice wise, I recommend figuring out how much smoking costs you on a monthly basis, then going out and acquiring a debt of roughly the same amount. Have fun with it.

[edit]: I changed my profile name, old one was bottom of the barrel and...
