In all my Oscars Twitter Excitement yesterday I forgot to post that my site, the one I posted about in passing a while ago is ALIVE

No seriously, it is.

And it will become more alive everyday. Soon it will learn to walk and function like a real site!

Entry #3 is the teacher responisble for pretty much all of my making my dreams come true. She helped me do concrete things that helped me get into University and let me really explore myself without limitation. When I'm famous she's at the top of my Thank Yous.

Please, please vote for her. I've been in this classroom and it really doesn't feel as inspired as the classroom she use to teach in and I know she'll make a beautiful inspirational place if she gets the money.

Vote Here

(if you go back far enough---like 3 years I'm sure I make fun of her at some point. I'll see if I can link it here)

So for the second time, I've been asked by my church to play the Virgin Mary.

This time I will not be tricked.

No ma'am.

p.s. Someone make a choice for me! Extra long Laundry List next week or post one tomorrow?
Copy this sentence into your LiveJournal if you're in a non-same-sex marriage, and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.
Dear F-List (both Canadian and Americans):

Please tell me why the American election gets to be so much more hilarious than the Canadian one? It's not fair! I demand macros and pins and We Can (hold babies and carve pumpkins) blogs! I demand Canadian's get the same hilarious stuff you American's get.

And new leaders to choose from. I am sick of Transvestite Clown, French Muppet and Moustache Man. And don't tell me we got Elizabeth May and I should be happy. SHE RIDES A TRICYCLE!

(I do not lie at all. I saw her.)

What...we're RTA students and bored......
If one gets into a bidding war over FNL material (in the last minute of the ebay auction) and loses, should the person be happy the show is popular or should the person be furious at losing to someone who is probably an Ebay junkie who will resell?

(the item in question was a crew jacket identical to the one in the icon to go with my BtvS jacket)

My father (like all men who have children and Wiis) decided an awesome Father's Day present would be his own copy of Wii Fit, the revolutionary workout. Apparently he didn't take into account that getting one might mean one less mouth to feed, as I was more likely to drop dead from heat stroke today than actually track down a copy.

So I hit Yonge Street/The Eaton's Centre/Metropolis Mall/The Atrium Mall after work in this order: HMV1, Mind Games, EB Games, The Source, Best Buy, Future Shop, HMV2 and the little tiny Game Shack near the subway. All of the clerks either laughed in my face and said "OH MY GOD, EVERYONE WANTS ONE," or cowered in fear of a tongue-lashing when they admitted that "No, they didn't have any; no, they had no idea when they were getting shipments of any; and please try again next week." This led me to the conclusion that, in fact, it was possible that Wii Fit never existed at all and that it's an elaborate marketing scheme to you get fit by trying to find the damn thing.

So I headed to the subway, hot and empty-handed and cursing Nintendo that I'd have to do it all over again every time I set foot into the downtown core until I got a copy. As I waited for my mother to circle the Royal York subway station (and miss me 3 times), I headed into the Shoppers Drug Mart there for a bottle of water to rehydrate and remembered that, once upon a time, I had casually remarked how ridiculous it was that some Shoppers sell Wii games. Alas, I got another funny look for my trouble when I asked if THIS Shoppers did.

And then, silly me, when I finally found my mother and she asked where I'd been in the 3 times she'd circled the block, I told her that sometimes Shoppers sells Wii crap. So she said, "Do you want to go check across the street from the apartment?" which really translated to "Walk more for this mythical video game," and I said, "Sure, why not. I enjoy a solid defeat from all sides, no use in doing this half-assed."

So I go into the Shoppers across from the apartment and I see a store copy of it, which means at some point the game was in stock. So I asked the salesgirl if they had any in. She looked at me quizically -- Oh boy, here it comes -- and said, "Did you call a couple hours ago?" No, I said, because that would have been the smart thing to do. You can use the phone in air-conditioning, without ever standing up and walking anywhere.

"Because," she said, "we just got 2 of them in about an hour and a half ago."

And for those of you playing along at home, the time was then 4:15, and I got off work at 2, it takes about half an hour to get home at that time ... so I could have been home, taken a nap and then strolled (read jaywalked) across the street to GET THE F-ING WII FIT GAME THAT I RAN ALL AROUND DOWNTOWN FOR.

But at least my father is enjoying his early present. And his failing at this game is enough LAWLS for us all.
Went to the Silver Snail today for the Boy since his closest big town is apparently in the 80s comicwise. It's becoming a roughly bi-weekly thing (more weekly than bi, but not quite fully weekly) and everytime I think I get the same guy having to hunt down the semi-obscure comics for me while I temporarily propogate the "ditzy uncomic booky girlfriend" stereotype.

Half of me is highly amused that all I have to do for 50% of the trip is stand around looking mildly confused and the other half is cursing myself for just not being able to do it myself. Firstly, I've been going to the Snail for at least 7 years. And was a very casual visitor there since I was about 12. Secondly, it's not like I'm looking for back issues. I just apparently cannot find anything with "X-MEN" in the title.

ION, I've discovered that there is a list of 18 big items left to do before camp starts in a month. This is on top of my summer course, work and social engagements. And 3 other people's work/school/social engagements. It will take God himself to get VBC in shape for the week of June 24th, but it will look damn pretty when we finish. Enough so to make a nice portfolio/scrap book of camp nonsense.

Also---and on an entirely random note (except for [ profile] shelbecat and [ profile] riggins_girl who know what I'm doing) does anyone know where the Rehab centre was located in S1 of FNL (obv. from FNL. I mean this is MY journal). This says it's in Midland, but this is Wikipedia.

Because I clearly didn't know enough about the course material in Pop Culture as of this morning, we're discussing SLASH after the break today.

So LJ, tell me what to say!

ION, the more I listen to this lecture on sexual stereotypes (with HEAVY homosexual discussion, like all) the more I want to write bad fic covering all the gay stereotypes using Tim or Landry. And I mean EVERY stereotype.

Why my boy is awesome:

We have this "Test the Nation" business going on across from work today, so people who are famous kept wandering by us at work today. Including Alan Thicke (Growing Pains) and the Mascots from all the Canadian Sports teams. (And some Jeff...Buttle? Who [ profile] orcacait was on about who also did Air Farce)

Anyways. So this really hot woman walks by and I'm standing with my boy, and two "very" male coworkers.

Both co-workers go: "Wow, she's hot." and drool pretty much after her in her barely there top. Boy, who hasn't looked up for more than a second goes.

"She looks like that girl on Mutant X."

and low and behold, she was.

So I spent the last 21 minutes of my life explaining how presale/my awesome powers/ticket master works/adventuring ones way through the internet to get the magic presale sekrit code to my mother while pulling 3 midlevel Matchbox Twenty tickets out of my ass.

I would officially like to declare that my work here is done.
I see the Strike Bomb has started to go off. tick...tick...BOOM!

See, as a potential WGA member one day in the near future, I find this FASCINATING. I want so badly to be a show runner and to write/produce. I want to read up on this as much as I can so when the Strike comes and I'm the one on the picket line I'll understand the history and the strikes that have come before. It also makes me appreciate even more getting a second "steadier" job.

On the other hand, as a fan I'm crushed. I have a TV addiction and with streaming so hard in Canada it's not like I can even watch shows that I want to catch up on easily. I want this over with. I can't stand summer hiatus. I'm starting to get desperate and there's no positive to this.

And finally, there are wars and stuff going on, and this is what's got my interests peaked? It makes me a little internally nuts.
