A Day in My Life

Posted in Life with tags , on April 28, 2008 by abraxus

At around 8 PM last night my wife decided it would be superspiffycool if we could go to “The City” today. Some Geographical enlightenment: We live 385km away from “The City” With our fancy Canadian cars and measurements of speed that means we are just shy of 4 hours away from “The City” at the legally allowed Speed Limit.

This means we got up at 7 AM to get to our destination at 11 AM. That’s just getting to the edge of it mind you, not the additional 30 minutes of drive time through traffic to reach our goal, the WEM. Our purpose? To buy her a new PC. Our Results? $210 in Anime, $76 in Old Navy, $105 in the T&T Market, $86 at Payless and about $77 in Manga. You’ll notice no new PC on that list. She’s a fickle one she is.

Fun was had. Risked life and limb in cutting approx. 90 minutes off our travel time both there AND back again (Hobbits FTW!) whilst avoiding the lovely gentlemen of the R.C.M.P. who can only “Get Their Man” if they know their man is there to be had apparently.

Off Topic I stopped by Danalyn‘s Blog to wish her a Happy Birthday on behalf of Yoshi ( I think this was a clever plot to see just how much he could irritate her…curse me for being so easy to manipulate!). She was having a lovely time explaining how dim the Geek Squad can be at times. I had many things like that happen to me when I was in the field of PC maintenance lo these many years ago before I found out I liked Cooking alot more than my old job. I wasn’t even trained in any formal sense, I used my common sense but I daresay even I might be over-qualified to work for Geek Squad based on her Post.

Editted to remove my embarrassing typographical incompetence.

Watching things about Uwe Boll is more interesting than watching a Film by Uwe Boll. You’d think that someone would have mentioned this to Uwe by now eh? Click the link to see the latest foolishness.

Finally my new Tattoo makes an appearance thanks to my new Camera Phone. Not the best Quality in the Pic but at least it’s up finally.

All of this fell in approximately 32 hours, that’s my Driveway…I am standing about oh…30 feet from the end of it. Snowblowers are my friends.

Yes, that’s right. I, the man with a all the portable things that money can buy have bought a new Cell Phone. Now, let me preface this by saying I don’t need or want a phone that can play MP3’s, Surf the Net, Tell me how lost I am to within 2 inches anywhere on the globe, check email, IM or take Photos. I want a Phone that’s *gasp* a friggin PHONE!

Apparently they don’t make those any longer so I got this instead.

Which does all the things I just said I didn’t need…le sigh.

It has been brought to my fleeting attention span that I perhaps watch too much Anime. Let us examine this.

Yesterday a friend of mine came over to visit and asked me if I had seen the latest Naruto and Bleach DVDs out for sale. Now I know he only asks me because he likes to borrow them from me when I pick them up so he can watch them. I told my friend that I had them, loaned them to him and a few hours later got a call from him wanting to talk about the latest Episode of Naruto. I said sure I’d love to talk about it but when he started in I was confused. I had just watched the latest Episode of Naruto a few days ago (the ‘latest’ Episode being #220 or so) and he was describing things from years ago. Then I remembered he was watching the DVDs which are only up to around Episode 80ish.

I told him my mistake and he said I was an Anime-Geek. So out of spite I told him that the latest Episode of Bleach I had seen was #166 and he was only on 33 to which I got a lovely, “You asshole!” Somehow though it made me feel better.

It’s not MY fault he can’t stand to read Subs so he has to wait for the Dubs =P So yeah, I suppose that makes me an entry level Otaku. It’s a burden I bear with broad shoulders *nod*

Allow me to make a horrible segue for a moment and ask the Bloggy Community in general, “Has anyone seen our dear Pandora? I haven’t heard a peep out of her in what seems like forever.”
