we both can’t wait for the new season of Rescue Me, John got me hooked on that one. i had my first taste of 24 last night and boy is that stressful – it’s a great show but my heart rate was up for 2 straight hours. i’d never seen an episode before and was pretty impressed. another big show neither john or i have ever seen would be Lost. everyone’s talking about it – i was just never compelled to watch it but maybe it’s worth a go? although it’s the season for big network season premieres, still i must admit my fave shows are usually found on Discovery Channel and Showcase (shh ;p) and since i’ve gotten digital cable, IFC has become my new best friend.
It was a great weekend, although saturday turned into Scarlett Johansson day. We watched In Good Company on movie central then she hosted SNL (ft. Death Cab). Intermittantly there were commercials for Karla. They’ve made a movie about Karla Homolka – that disturbs me. Anyone not familiar with the Bernardo/Homolka story, take a gander – but any stories you might find/Google could be pretty graphic and disturbing…
I noticed that Matt Good had put his blog on hold for a while (briefly..this weekend…). This happens periodically… he’ll take it offline for days, weeks, months. Throughout the years I’ve read his site/blog, his book, gone to shows etc. – classic fan. It’s pretty silly when you end up getting people calling your house to threaten you and your loved ones because you write liberal, opinionated, thought provoking pieces expressing your ideals. On a side note, yesterday we walked out of our house, down the street and almost right past Jenny Good picking up after her puppies. John was like “Is that Jenny Good?” and I was like “Is that Pete?! :-O”.
so there’s quite a bit going on in the city this weekend… i admit i’ve been completely cranky and difficult for the past 48 hours – i just fed my belly and went for a mini-walk on my break with Laura and i feel a little better. the canucks are currently scoreless in the 2nd period and i’m left alone at work to listen to Death Cab and be emotional. Plans is one of those albums that takes me back to a specific time last year — so does Transatlanticism – it’s so hip to be indie-emo 😐
since i’m in such a fragile mood i don’t think i want to blog too much – then everyone will know my innermost fears, desires, quirks, secrets, pet peeves… and i’d really rather just share those over time through hundreds of posts instead of treating you all this evening in one lump sum of a post. i think i’ll waste some time reading more blogs and doing some Tickle tests…will post the EXCITING results shortly….Zzzzzz
so what should i do tonight? sit around a mope? beat my head against the wall? go run outside naked in the rain (michelle once told me that was fun). *sigh*.
EDIT: Andy Samberg was on Letterman last night… he funny. i like him. and james brown is playing at River Rock Casino tonight :-O !
John is still out with sinus pain/head cold type things. I stopped at Spice Alley yesterday to get nummy dinner hot spicy things – burn that right outta there – hope he gets better soon since he’s still got foreign health care but nothing valid here so it’s about 100 bucks a pop at the clinic.
There was a fire alarm going off in our building today. Everyone walked downstairs and went to Starbucks until we got the â€˜all clearâ€™. It was a pleasant 15 minute interruption to the workday — seeing as how there was no serious issue/no one was hurt. Although walking down all those flights of stairs made me a wee bit dizzy. Remind me that I donâ€™t start work until 11:00am tomorrow.
Advance voting for the election starts this weekend. The campaigns are smutting up and really getting dirty during this last stretch. I still donâ€™t know whether Iâ€™m voting for the person or the party. but also… i still havenâ€™t found out what was up with the fireworks last night – oh well.
EDIT: there was just another fire alarm. many flights of stairs + 3 inch stilettos = ugh….
