This is the end.... kinda

Howdie Hoe everybody!.

I am officially done with Blogger, and Beer-With-A-Coffee-Chaser is now extinct. This is the second to last post on this site. I haven't given up on blogging, just changing venues.

1. The new project is . It is my Haiku Movie Review site. If it takes you more then 11 syllables to sum up a're not trying hard enough.

2. There will also be a personal blog site attached to the review site in the immediate future.
still working on that, but the name is probably have zombies in it....that or gojira....or maybe Chin!!!

3. Got my birthday prezzy from the parents early this year. a shiny little 20" lcd moniter. Now all my writing appears even bigger and crisper. Glorious. Also Serenity looks stellar on it.....go Wheddon!

4. Contrary to the rumor mill , I am in fact not a Cylon. Of course if I was a cylon, I most likely wouldn't tell!

O to Z of ME

Thats right. I am tired of having this task hanging over my shoulder. So as the new year is nigh at hand, I will endeavor to remove this from the must do list

O is for Ostler

In the medieval Society I belong to I am called Mary Ostler.

P is for Pratchett

My favorite author that is still alive is Terry Pratchett

Q is for Quincy

My favorite TV show from my youth was Quincy

R is for Radio

I am addicted to talk radio. CKNW and stations that replay 50's radio serials are my dealer.

S is for Suffragist

I fervently believe people should have the right to vote

T is for Timothy Lake

I spend a lot of my childhood summers up near timothy lake in the Cariboo.

U is for Unicycles

I ride unicycles. I own two, and basic and a high boy.

V is for Vinci.... Da Vinci

Da Vinci is my frak'n hero, that and all the other dabblers in mechanical design 4-600 years ago.

W is for Woodworking

I like woodworking. I especially like wood

X is for Xactly

I don't xactly have a word for X

Y is for Y do you care

Seriously, don't you have better things to do with you time?

Z is for Zombies

Zombies, Zombies, raa, raa, raa. Zombies, Zombies, ha, ha, ha. MMMM, I love Zombies!

I am planing on having a new type of blog in the future, as well and doing some audio and video blogging. Once I have the new home and stuff nailed down I'll post it here, and then abandoned blogger for ever.

N is for Neige (aka annoying snow)

Hello Boys and Girls,

Todays letter N is brought to you by Neige. I love snow, but I don't even mind shoveling the stuff. I find snow very annoying when its covered up the shoveled drive way before your even done half of the shoveling.....Doh! What I truly love about snow is I get to repeatedly throw snowballs into the face of Holly.

Your Fired!

Hidi-Ho Everybody

So Yesterday morning, I got my ass fired from Save on Foods. I was working in the price change department, peeling all those hanging stickers off the shelves and putting up new ones. Well I had given a month notice ( cause I'm nice, and stupid....mostly stupid), and with only 15 minutes left in the shift I got called up to the office. Well, as soon as I walked into the room, I was yelled at your fired. There was more dialogue than that, and after it was done, I asked her to repeat it so I could capture that special moment onto my MP3 player voice recorder.

M is for Movies

M is for Movies

I have always been a big movie fan, although in till this year my passion was generally tailored towards the Rental side of the big picture. Then I found friends that like film on the big screen. I seldom actually rent films now. I think I would still be renting alot of movies if there was a rental place like Shlockbuster (2nd & Lonsdale N.Van) in Port Coquitlam. The local Rogers video is fine if you want to watch the big Hollywood productions, but older and more obscure fare is right out of the question.

Top Five Films of All Time According to Me

1. Harvey
2. Emielle
3. Usual Suspects
4. Blade Runner
5. Fight Club

HM - Hudson Hawk, Lawrence of Arabia, Army of Darkness....etc

The Egg and how not to digest it.

Recently I had one of those conversations that demonstrated the strange strange areas of obscure knowledge I have collected over the years. In this case it was the bizarre stuff I know about uses of eggs pre-1650 that don't involve digestion. Yes I know...I'm special in the short bus usage of the word.

It got me to crack open one of the most interesting reads I have ever found. Its Giambattista della Porta's amazing book(s) Natural Magick. It was published in 1658, and is full of the strangest most obscure knowledge I have ever found. Best of all its online.
