I am blogging less and less. We’ve just been so busy! We’re getting so close to landing, it’s really going to be any day now, so I’m working super hard on getting everything prepped and ready. I’m giving the house a crazy deep clean, getting emergency bags packed (so we can just drive straight to the border when the COPR comes – we’re going to spend the night over the border then come back to land in the morning if it arrives during the week) applying for jobs (well, one job that I really like the look of) and all kinds of mayhem.

I’m so, so excited. I really can’t wait.

When things calm down it’ll be back to Battlestar and cosmology as usual, but until then life just has to take priority.

Seriously, so excited.


Hi WordPress! It’s been a while…

I haven’t blogged for like a week! SO what’s been going on?

Well, I did the spring clean, which was pretty sweet. It’s nice to be able to open all the windows again.

We had the first big thunderstorm of the year, and lightning struck a house! http://www.newstalk1010.com/News/localnews/blogentry.aspx?BlogEntryID=10528122 The strike was so powerful that it sent shockwaves through the neighboring houses, which is actually pretty cool.

I went shopping at the weekend and came back with nothing but a lipstick! If anyone could point me in the direction of a store that sells anything but skinny jeans it would be much appreciated.

Jays fans booed Dickey. Come on, guys, it was an ugly game, did you really need to make it uglier? Historically Dickey is a slow starter. Show some love.

This happened:

And I am so glad it did.

Margaret Thatcher died! RIP, Maggie.

We watched one of the worst Battlestar storylines to date.


Season three had some real losers – the whole “black market” thing… That one where Kathryn from Desperate Housewives took hostages… Season four has seen fewer filler episodes which I like… And this wasn’t really a filler episode, but the whole thing was just so horribly lame… The one where Lee becomes president. The whole run around with the Irish lawyer, it was unequivocally stupid. We knew what was going to happen from the moment Lee suggested Zarek wouldn’t make it as president. But noooo, we had to pretend like anyone else was even a contender for the job. When the lawyer starts listing the “good traits” they’d need in a president, it was laughable. On the bright side, the scenes with Baltar, Roslin and the hybrid were just excellent. Whenever Baltar comes on the screen you know something hilarious is going to happen. He’s such a great character, and the series really benefits from his comic relief. We love Baltar in that respect.

I saw Adama with his model boat again and decided I want to make one.

I got a bunch of reading done which was really nice (I really should do more of that) and that’s about it!

Hope you all had a good weekend, too!
