Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me... Well tomorrow anyhow.

As of Saturday October 21st I turn one year older. It's really no big deal as I've only freaked out once about my advancing age and that was when I turned 32. Now tomorrow I'll be 35, but I don't feel to much like celebrating instead I'll just put my energy into making this next year a better one then the last two. I did however, get the best gift already from my Mom and Dad .... "The Deluxe Book of SuDoku #2"! I kid you not, I've spent the last few days (Their gift package arrived Wednesday and was filled with other cool stuff too) doing puzzle after puzzle, I think I'm addicted! If you haven't played SuDoku before, check out your local paper and give it a shot! I'm not going to explain it here but a good teacher is cousin Giles in Farndon UK as he is the one who initially showed me how to do it!

So as you can tell the internet is back up and working! I stuck it to 3web and got Shaw to put me on their service behind 3webs back! Let's just say 3web wasn't going to let me disengage their service until the end of the month ....well I showed them!

Saw a GREAT movie last week... The Departed. Why can't they make more movies like this one? All-star cast (Matt Damon, Leonardo DeCaprio, Mark Whalberg, Martin Sheen, Alec Baldwin, and Jack Nicholson) First rate Director (Martin Scorsese), and you have a film I don't mind spending 13 bucks to see. This is a film meant for the widescreen of a theater... simply fantastic. Go see it today if you can. It's Violent but not overdone or gory. It's easily the second best film I've seen all year. Next up I want to see is The Prestige which has a similar all-star cast!

So that's about it around these parts.... Internet is back up, Job Search continues, and I am still going to weight watchers and have lost 16 pounds so far in six weeks! Yeah for me! Until then as always feel free to email me or leave a comment and say hi! Also if you've got the time feel free to drop by my page by clicking here, and add me as a friend if you happen to have a space there as well!

Still without Internet, still without a Job

Well here I sit in the Surrey Public Library by a guy who is more interested in what is on my screen then what is on his, and another guy who smells like he started his morning with a bottle of Wild Turkey. I love Surrey!

The job interview yesterday with JP morgan was a bust. I did well and may very well be offered the thing, but they didn't pay very much above minimum wage. And when I told them what I thought was a reasonable starting wage the guy looked at me like I was from Mars, and simply said 'We don't pay that much'. And trust me when I say what I asked for was not a lot, and barely enough to live on.

My internet is down for day number 5. My adventures with the 3web (My internet provider)support team have been talked about on here before (I'd link you to that post, but the Library internet doesn't allow for opening multiple pages and in short I can't do anything too fancy with my posts) and let me tell you they haven't improved. Needless to say I tried to cancel my service to sign back up with Shaw but 3web refused to release my modem until the end of the month (No released modem means no siging up with shaw until 3web releases the modem from their system). I thought about Telus but visiting their website shows me that I can't get ADSL where I live. So hopefully the internet is back up soon as I can't look for work at home without it, and the internet here (As I found out today) won't let me use a floppy or a CD to access my Resume and send it to people who want to hire me.

As always I love to hear from you email me today, especially if I haven't heard from you in a while! I may not respond right away (No Internet obviously) but when I check my email here at the library tomorrow I'll have something to read and write back too!

Internet Down , sweaty, and being given the evil eye by some creepy looking dude!

GADZOOKS! I got home Monday from a terrific holiday in Grand Forks and found out that I had no internet!!! It's now Wednesday and I still have no Internet! I am currently on the web here in the Surrey Public Library after having just been to the gym .. I'm sweaty, and some creepy looking dude, who is waiting for a computer, is looking at me like he wants to kill me so he can get on to check his email.

So, this is going to be short and sweet..... I have a job interview tomorrow with JP Maorgan bank in the USA (No not the JP Morgan who was a judge on the Gong Show.) and I'm here doing some last minute studying so I don't look like a complete ass when I go in there tomorrow! So wish me luck...

I've also just been to the gym working off the Thanksgiving feasts that I was lucky to get in GF. My regular instructor wasn't there much to my chagrin (She's really HOT!) and I'm about to go home and watch 'Lost'. Actually I really have to go because I have 5 minutes left on my computer time and that guy standing behind me who REALLy needs to get on the internet is about to stick a pin in a voodoo doll that looks a little like me!!!

As always email me kiddies and say hi!!
