Paperwork to catch up on

So here are several things I've been meaning to catch up on.

First, Dave from CCCP's girlfriend, Amanda has a blog called In the Image of God. An interesting look at her life and cutely enough, the femal comaninon template to Dave's. Or David's if you prefer.

Rob posted his collection of photos from the Canoe trip. They can be viewed at his Shutterfly account. Now you can see the dumbass hat I wear when I go camping.

After a rough go with her last blog and a false start on a new one, Shanna has re-emerged with a new blog called Hecticity. She suggested... well inadvertantly, a new place to post on your blog, from class... I think I'm gonna make a contest.....

Sorry Y'all

Fuck. Ok it seems Bootsy won't get off my lap. It seems she wants to blog today. So here it is...

Well Christ

Can't seem to get into blogger today, so I'm gonna hafta use my Zoundry Blog Writer to post today. Hey, there's another item for the list of places/ways to blog.

wmd.jpgI am a little upset. I watched the movie Be Cool last night at my buddy Steve's. I found the movie hilarious, but one part disturbed me. They stole my old bands name... sorta. In the movie there is a hip hop/gangsta rap (I know rob will correct what I've called them) group called the Dum M D's. Well hell my old band was called WMD. This is off the hook, See I can prove it, check out our old website. Oh well nothing I can do about it, I'm not suing MGM.

Anyways. Found my wallet that had been missing for several days. It has slipped under the seat of my parents car. Thank god, I was shitting myself over it. But anyways, I better got get some cleaning done, so see ya all later.

Tired thy name is Jeremy

So wow. Just spent the past 2 days helping Shawna's dad and uncle shingle her grandparents' house. I love that kind of work because yup can get some good honest work done, get some fresh air, drink and at the end of the day, the girls make you supper and do the dishes. I'm not being sexist, I just don't like doing dishes.

Pretty exhausting though, especially when the two days before I had done the double job thing (23 hours in 2 days). Slept like a log last night, probably will tonight too.

Life feels like its picking up again. I know, I know don't let my guard down or something is gonna happen... knock on wood!

Ladies and gentlemen...

I got a dog. Hells yes. So now this is gonna turn into one of those crappy cute blogs where I make a 3 page post everytime she takes a shit. Now that's devotion.

She's about a 1 year old beagle cross adopted from the Estevan Humane Society. Quiet, obedient and above all loves everyone. One of those dogs that would lick a robbers face and show them were the valuables are.

On the way home, my buddy Steve and I who came with me to adopt her came up with the perfect name. After P-Funk bass player and cool dude all the 'round, Bootsy Collins. So my new Pup's name is Bootsy. Bootsy is a good name becuase Bootsy the bass player kicks ass.

Pictures form the Saskatoon trip are now up at the Photo Lab, including pictures of the Torvaldson cube.

OK so Michelle wants an update on the eyes I came to get checked here. I say fuck that son!

So Shanna and I came to this here internet cafe at the U of S called Browsers, so here I am, blogging at an internet cafe... another check on the list. I should make and "ultimate places to blog from" list. To date they would be (including a check on which I've completed).

- Home Computer (check)
- Work Computer (check)
- From a cell phone (not yet)
- From a blackberry (not yet)
- From an internet TV (check)
- From the woods (not yet)
- From a rooftop or exceedingly high place(not yet)
- From an internet cafe (CHECK)
- From a library (check)
- From a public bathroom (not yet)
- From underground (not yet, your basement doesn't count)
- From another continent (not yet)
- From in a car (not yet)

SO there it is to date, any suggestions are welcome.

Shanna and I went tearing around the U of S campus last night. We saw a bajillion cool things. Included are ; a bunch of dinosaurs (T-Rex, Triceratops, raptor, that one with the plates on his back), some cool rocks and crystals, THE BIGGEST ASS KOI I'VE EVER SEEN (Like 30 lbs EACH), SOme cool aquariums with chiclids and some wicked sturgeon, the Thorvaldson Building with the large concrete cube that is reputed to contiain Throvaldsons wheelchair bound remains inside (check the photo lab in a couple days to see a picture of me sitting on it), the airplane room (a room with hundreds of paper airplanes stuck in it's incredibly high ceiling, rumor has it that WW2 fighter pilots were trained there and threw the planes there, if their plane fell, they had died in the war), John Deifenbakers grave (where I made an inappropriate joke and suddenly my digi cam wouldn't work, so I apologized and it worked again... weird) and the cool atrium and glass elevator at the Agriculture Building.

Wow any one of those things would have made a blog entry. Really. Anyways, got the rest of the day ahead of me, but this is likely my las tone from here in S'toon for now!

Please Remain Calm

Ladies and Gentlemen of my viewing group please remain calm for the following message.

The city of Saskatoon is under construction. Please remain calm. If you are in Saskatoon, please remain where you are, leaving your house will result in frustration, late arival times,nutt butt, detours, burnt out clutch syndrome and acute sensitivity to the colour orange.

If you are safe at home, please call you family and let them know you are allright. Stay put until the snow flies, at that time the city will refuse to clean the streets and you won't have to worry about traffic because you'll be stuck in your driveway. Remember, it could be worse, you could be stuck in Regina.

More on this story as it develops.

Paycheque thy name is Evil

Ok so swear to God, I had to go pick up my paycheque after work at DQ tonight. So I went, picked it up and well let's just say the amount I'm being paid is decidedly evil. See for yourself.

MY SWEET JESUS! I think I'm gonna hafta go get myself an exorcist and some holy water. And an asian whore. I hear they're good at warding off spirits.

Creepy shit...

Well here we go again.... another Blog entry

I know, i know, nothing much for posts from me lately and before that they were all about Shaq. I apologize. At least I update... unlike EVERYONE ELSE ON MY BLOG LIST!

Anyways, found a hilarious blog with a guy who eats stuff. I know you wanna see this shit!

So, I'm headed to Saskatoon tommorrow and am looking forward to doing some field blogging. I know for sure i'll do a post from Shanna's place and maybe I'll try and do some from a library or internet cafe... just so I can say I did. Of course if I don't manage to get my paycheque this afternoon, I won't be doing much of anything in Saskatoon but starving.

If your name is Courtney and you left a comment on my last post, please e-mail me ( I know several Courtneys... which are you!?

And maybe a suprise coming by the end of the week. Let's just say, it'll probably ruin this blog and will be way cooler than the spiders.

Friday, September 16, 2005

Ok Shaq,

We get it.

You're a good guy, now lay off it!,1002,271%7C97526%7C1%7C,00.html

Well, it's official, I'm going to Hell

Yep, I participated in this, and now my fate has been sealed. A friend of a friend names Abraham Taft asked me to help him with posting a blog online. So I obliged. Now, I'm going to hell.

Although he hasn't put much up yet, just from talking to him, I'd suggest some viewer discredtion before reading his blog. He's a little.... conservative for my tastes.

Check him out Here.

Shaq : Steel in My Book

See that guy to the right. That's Shaquille O'Neal as the titleing on the image suggests. He's the star player for the Miami Heat. And incidentally everytime he comes on TV I am heard to remark enthusiastically (and sarcastically), "Oh boy I hope he's making Kazaam 2!"

Why do I treat such a happy looking guy so poorly, even though I don't know him? Well mostly my spiteful attitude towards rich sports celebrities and plus he's a terrible actor.

But the other day I stumbled across this article at Sports Illustrated Online that changed my mind a bit. It seems Shaq is not only writing a cheque or playing in a celebrity gold tournament to support those affected by the hurricane. He's getting his hands wet. Him and his family have rented a warehouse, hired trucks and are personally handling and moving donations from the community at large. This is above and beyond his call of duty, but by his example more people will be inclined to help out. really makes me respect the guy that much more.

Maybe next time, I won't be so rough on him when he approaches the free throw line.

29 and... ain't no more....

Grandpa you crazy sonofabitch. Yep that's my grandpa there (article courtesy of the Melville Advance, the most news-starved paper on the planet). Got his first 29 in crib. Only 80 something years to do it too! And to top it off grandma dealt it to him on the morning of their 55th wedding anniversary (how CUTE!).

It's inspired me to play crib more, infact I've hit Shanna and Rob up for games, and I know I'm gonna be trying to play more. If I'm gonna get myself that 29 and be the fourth generation, I better start playing the odds NOW.

But congrats to grandpa on that once in a lifetime acheivement!

Also, Shanna wants me to blog on Googles new Blog Search. For those of you who don't know, Blogger is owned by Google (gasp!). So they have a cool search now. Included in this change is the new search section on that useless toobar at the top. So now you can search this blog (saving all of us YEARS of work) or other blogs as well. So yeah, that's pretty cool. But not nearly as cool as Google Maps.

And today's topic;

So I have good news, bad news and more good news. Then some other stuff as well.

Good News : I found a new home for Brain, Pilot's World's First Pet. It's an old sauerkraut jar with some dirt and a stick.

Bad News : Brain is dead. I think he dies last night sometime, it was pretty cold in my room and he wouldn't move today.

Good News : Within like 2 hours Michelle had found a new BIGGER spider, so he's in Brain's new jar. I've decided to let the people name him, send me some name ideas, and I'll put the suggestions on a poll on Friday. You can check him out at the Pilot's World Webcam. Not only is this guy cool, but he's like 3 times the size of Brain!

In other news, there are some changes in my little blogging community or as I like to call it, my "stable" of bloggers. One, Shanna who threatened to quit on us has decided not only to stay on, but to switch over to Blogger. She's got a great idear for a blog, and I'm helping her with a good template. I won't put the link up to her blog yet as she's still building it, but rest assured it will be good.

Second, my ol' pal Mr. Jeff is blogging now. With the aply named blog "George Bush Sucks" what really amazes me, is that his blog has been around as long as mine. That's right you heard correctly. He's been blogging since November of last year. In fact, would you beleive his blog predates mine by 2 days. Sonofabitch! Anyways why am I mentioning him since he hasn't blogged since? Well in hopes that maybe, just MAYBE he might restart. I think he has things to say, and by doing this I can encourage him to do so. Now we just need to get Mark blogging.... Check out Jeff Here.

On a personal basis, I went to the animal shelter today to get some info on adopting a dog. Pretty easy process, $40 and it's yours. That's about it. Small dogs are hard to get and theyreally kinda cut you off once the pet is in your possesion. So now I have a lot of research to do (vets, grooming, training, supplies) in addition to finding a home we can share before I can take that plunge.

Going to the animal shelter I came to realize the immense cost they go through, food, immunizations, taxes, wages etc. You can help support animal shelters by adopting pets instead of buying from pet stores, volunteering and there's even a click to donate site for this too!!!!

Carlo's Place


Ahh my favourite little store. Carlos is a great little guy witha little store on the hill in Weyburn called Carlos Place. Need to have anice evening? This is the place. you can ge tanyting there, confectionary, video rental, fresh baked bread, HUGE subs, Donairs (if you've never tried one, you haven't lived), pizzas and so much more.

What also attracts me to this store is Carlos himself. He;s SUPER friendly and always has something nice to say to you and is very generous with his clientele. I would seriously reccommend that anyone visit this store as often as possible and support ol' Carlos.

Also, if you're a big camping fan like me and are looking for deals, well you know this is the time of year to buy crap. I just bought a little camp grill, a camp pillow, a 18 tool knife and 3 bungee chords for ... $1.50 at wholesale. They have other crap too if you're looking!

We need a Cure!

Ok kids we have a bit of an emergency. I love all my firends' blogs. I like to read their thoughts, their current events, their games. I always viewed my blog as a newspaper, just for my life. I post and discuss the issued of MY life. And the comments are your editorials. Needless to say, in the past 9 months, I've held blogging prettly close to my heart, and the blogs of my friends and family mean the world to me.

Well one of them is gettin disillusioned. She's done it before actually and somehow we managed to pull her out of the slump, but she's back again. My lil' sister Shanna figures that since we don't comment, we don't read so she feels like she's wasting her time. So today is Shanna day! Go to Shanna's blog and comment on a post. I'd suggest not commenting on the post where she discusses quitting. Comment on another issue she discusses. read, enjoy, she's got some great insight and some weel developed thoughts. And unlike me, she spellchecks. If you like what you see, don't be afraid to comment on occasion! I'll also be featuring the link to her page in the masthead of my MSN all day. Let's support the community yo!

I was planning to do a little write-up promoting my favourite store today, but something came up yesterday and changed my mind to a post about a different, but also great business.

This year my old boss, Brian Bakken is celebrating 30 years owning the Weyburn Dairy Queen. He's a great guy and a pretty good boss, infact I always said if he was my boss in any other industry, I'd never quit. Any ways, he had a big 30 year anniversary deal at the store yesterday and it was cool to see everyone, my mom and I (she's also a DQ veteran) went and said hi to everyone. It brought up some old memories of old staff, and I posted a photo album I took on day in May while I was working there. So if you wanna swing by the Photo Lab and chack it out, Nathan's Last Day.

American Tragedy, April 26, 1992

April 26th, 1992
There was a riot on the streets
Tell me where were you?
You were sittin' home watchin' your TV
While I was participating in some anarchy
First spot we hit it was the liquor store
I finally got all that alcohol I can't afford
With red lights flashin', time to retire
And then we turned that liquor store into a structure fire
Next stop we hit, it was the music shop,
It only took one brick to make the window drop
Finally we got our own P.A.
Where do you think I got this guitar that you're hearing today?
(Cuz' as long as I'm alive, I'ma live ill B)
When we returned to the pad to unload everything
It dawned on me that I need new home furnishings
So once again we filled the van until it was full
Since that day my livin' room's been much more comfortable
Cause everybody in the hood has had it up to here
It's getting harder, and harder, and harder each and every year
Some kids went in a store with their mother
I saw her when she came out she was gettin' some Pampers
They said it was for the black man
They said it was for the mexican
But not for the white man
But if you look at the streets, it wasn't about Rodney King
It's this fucked-up situation and these fucked-up police
It's about comin' up and stayin' on top
And became 187 on a mother fuckin' cop
It's ain't in the paper, it's on the wall
National guard
Smoke from all around

Give me my share, my share.
Gimme my share, I want it.
Gimme my share, I need it now, I need it now.
My share.
A wicked one who doesn't wanna see me go.
Just gimme my share, I want it. Gimme my share.
But you don't want to give it to me,
you don't wanna see me go.
Gimme my share, I want it, Gimme my share.
But there is a wicked one.

Let it burn
Wanna let it burn, wanna let it burn
Wanna wanna let it burn
(I feel insane)
Riots on the streets if Miami
Whoa, riots on the streets of Chicago
On the streets of Long Beach
In San Francisco
Riots on the streets of Kansas City
Tuskaloosa, Alabama
Cleveland, Ohio
Fountainberry, Paramount, Vista Buelle
Eugene, Oregon
Eureka, California
Santa Barbara
mother fuckin' Nevada
San Diego
Lakewood, Florida
fuckin' 29 Palms
-sublime - april 26, 1992

I think we'll look at Katrina like we look at the LA riots.

Why does positive blogging week hafta fall on such a SHITTY week???????

Ok franly I'm having a hard time remaining positive. I sliced my thumb open bad ly at work and had to spend the rest of the day in shock trying to work.

But let's stay positive.

Looks like I'm going camping/hiking/backpacking/something this weekend with Rob and Kat.

My paycheque is over $100 more than i was expecting! Woo hoo!
