O Come All Ye Faithful Readers

A few of my favourite bloggers have been sharing their favourite Xmas music, and I thought I might as well jump on that ’ol bandwagon and share a few of my own favourites and a few interesting lesser-known ones. I’m afraid I can’t keep it to 10 (are you at all surprised by that?) so here’s a bigger list — no particular order!

This is me, sharing way too much (a catch-up post)

So it's been a little while since I posted about anything that wasn't about my favourite music. About three months actually. (Not that the music posts haven't been interesting, but they've sidetracked me a bit.) Here's a little rundown of what's been going on.

Life Songs: The ’80s, Part One

Okay, I’ve had a good long think about the ’80s, and there’s just too much to blog at once. So I’m breaking it up! I’m realizing I can’t even keep it to around 10 per year now (geez Ben, how did you choose ONE per year?), so this is going to just get silly…

Life Songs: ’70s, additional

Okay, so I’ve been pondering that last list and I realize I left a LOT out, and here’s some other ones I came up with. I know my list is way too freakin’ long now.

An updated quote

It’s about time I changed the quote at the bottom, don’t you think? It’s been there for a while. I’m replacing it with Roy Batty’s final speech from Blade Runner (as given by the illustrious Rutger Hauer). For posterity, it replaces this, Lloyd Dobler’s description of what he wants to do with his life, from Say Anything... (portrayed by John Cusack):
I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that.

Life Songs: ’70s

An awesome friend of mine once made a disc for me of ‘life songs’ – that is, a favourite song from every year of his life. I attempted to make one for him in return, but I couldn’t limit it to one song per year. I present for you here a revised version of that list.

Best day ever?


Friday I took the Casino bus into Niagara Falls to visit my folks. Dad met me at the casino, we went to the all-you-can-eat buffet (where I proceeded to drip several kinds of sauce onto my favourite green shirt) and then to the slots.

Oops, have I been missing again?

I realize I haven't been posting much lately, so here's a little catch-up:

Today has been interesting to say the least.

I have more Tarot!

I've been quite busy lately, as you may have guessed, but I thought I'd take a moment to tell you about a few new decks I've added to my collection – I've been very good, only two Tarot decks and two Oracle decks since last Autumn. Does this mean I've actually learned to my impulses? Maybe...

The Impossible Astronaut / The Day of The Moon

Okay, so I have seen the Dr Who season opener two-parter, and I have theories and questions. The Boy does as well, so let’s see what we’ve got. Don’t follow the jump if you don’t want to be spoiler-ed!

Farewell, Sarah Jane.

Last week, on April 19th, Elisabeth Sladen passed away after a quiet battle with cancer. The news came as a complete shock to me, delivered by phone while I was at The Ontario Science Centre with friends, for whom it was also quite a blow. Fittingly, we were standing in an exhibit on disasters. That evening we attended a fundraiser for WhoParty 15 and toasted her memory.

If you put your feedback address on your site, I WILL send it to you...

Bad planning, Coach Canada.

Hotness, the Dentist and Rugsucker Kolodny

Been pretty busy lately - darts is done for the season (I wasn't fabulous, but I held my own), T and I are caught up watching modern Dr Who (new series premieres at Easter, are you ready?), and the weather's been too beautiful to ignore!

Happy Anniversary to me!

Two anniversaries, actually – three weeks ago I had my 10-year anniversary with my firm, and a year ago today was the closing date on my condo!

Stuff I’ve Got: Wii Edition

So I’ve had my Wii for a little over a year now and, while I don’t play as often as I used to, I still quite enjoy it. So I just wanted to share what I’ve picked up for it since last January!

New design!

Well, I’ve finally taken the plunge and updated my blog design. Whaddya think? Does everything still work alright? Does the heading font come through? Leave me a comment, let me know!

Wordcloud, anyone?

Here’s a wordcloud generated from this very blog!

You can make one too, just visit Wordle!

Today is a good day

I’m having a pretty good day today. I’m not quite sure what it is, but I’m feeling positive about things and I’m much bubblier around the office than I have been for weeks (seriously, I’ve been a complete bitch here lately, stressy stressy stress). Possible reasons:

Oh pointy dart, oh pointy pointy

I can’t believe it. I truly can’t believe it.

Tonight, ladies and gents, I won EVERY ONE of my dart games. And not just best of three, either - I won all three rounds in two games each.

What can it mean? Have I improved? Well yeah, I have to a degree. Let’s just put it down to that, shall we?

I haz a keyboard!

I love my implements, I really really do. My iPad (which I have yet to name, btw) is a constant joy. Much as I love it though, the keypad isn't sufficient for long amounts of typing - because it's on-screen, there's no tactile response, so you have to be looking at it as you type, no touch-typing (oh, you can touch-type on the screen? Bite me, you're either lying or really have too much time on your hands).

Enter the bluetooth keyboard!

Five Rounds Rapid

Nicholas Courtney died yesterday. Apparently he'd been ill for some time, so it shouldn't have been a surprise; nevertheless, it was somewhat shocking news to wake up to this morning.

Doctor Who and the Incredibly Tardy Blog Post

Okay, I suck. I freely admit it. I have so many posts languishing in Draft Purgatory I could release them as a novel. A badly-written novel, but still...
