February 25, 2014: March movie releases to look forward to! Or not!

Again, a big thank you to those who have taken the time to introduce (and reintroduce) themselves in the comments section of this blog.  Not surprisingly, a lot of scifi fans among you.  Somewhat surprisingly, A LOT of animal lovers as well!  :) It’s been great learning a little about the individuals who make up […]

February 24, 2014: For Whom the Bell Trolls!

Let me start off by thanking everyone who has taken the time to post a short little self-intro in this blog’s comment section.  I would say “Welcome!” but it would seem all of you have been here for a while, whether your respective screen names have popped up before or not.  So, instead, I’ll say […]

February 23, 2014: Another Akemi-ism! Introduce yourself! Wrapping up our Stargate Atlantis season one rewatch with…The Siege II!

“My legs are kidding me!” - Akemi, this morning, complaining about her post-workout aches. After a recent exchange in the comment section about chatty regulars and silent lurkers, I thought it was high time we got to know a little about the people behind the strange names (and bizarre avatars) who frequent this blog. So […]

February 22, 2014: Videos news of note! Our Stargate Atlantis rewatch continues with…Siege I!

Let’s start you off with a grammar lesson… Dad’s six minute cell phone video of kids falling… This looks like a good movie : There but for the grace of God goes Equestrian Dressage Continuing our Stargate: Atlantis rewatch with season one’s penultimate episode: The Siege – Part 1!

February 21, 2014: My Top 10 Olympic Scandals! Our Stargate Atlantis rewatch continues with…The Gift!

In honor of the bullshit that is The Olympics, I give you my Top 10 Olympic Scandals! Despite holding a lead heading into her final skate and delivering what many termed a flawless performance, and despite the fact that Russian Adelina Sotnikova reportedly “stepped out” after landing a triple combination, Yuna Kim had to settle […]

February 20, 2014: Thoughts? Our Stargate: Atlantis rewatch continues with…Letters from Pegasus!

Okay.  Weigh in with your opinions on the following… The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer: On the one hand, I’m thinking the visual effects will probably be great.  On the other hand, the gags in this trailer feel mighty stale.   Now this sounds interesting: Company to Launch Tiny Satellites That ‘Bypass’ Internet Censorship…  Why do […]

February 19, 2014: Eat your veggies! Another Akemi gem! The Stargate: Atlantis rewatch continues with…Before I Sleep!

I eat my vegetables.  Honest, I do.  The only problem is they’re always the same half dozen prepared one of three different ways.  I suspect I’d eat – and enjoy them – a hell of a lot more if I could add some new, and more importantly TASTY, recipes to my repertoire.  Something like cheesy […]

February 18, 2014: Project updates! Our Stargate: Atlantis rewatch continues with…oops!

This morning, I took part in my very first Skype conference.  It was not without its problems.  For some reason, my writing partner’s webcam wasn’t working properly and, as a result, he appeared as a faceless avatar for the call’s duration.  It was a little unsettling, like I was chatting with that Anonymous guy.  Everyone […]

February 17, 2014: News of Note! Our Stargate: Atlantis rewatch continues with…ouch…Sanctuary!

That’s some weird weather we’ve been getting. Oof!  The Very Best Descriptions of Self-Published Books This is why I rarely go to the movies anymore: no sense at all.  Also this: at the end of The Dark Knight Rises.  And this: 6 Movie Plot Holes You Never Noticed Thanks to Editing | Cracked ….  Oh, and this: 5 […]

February 10, 2014: My January Reading List – Capsule Reviews! The mystery of the orange oatmeal solved! Stargate Atlantis rewatch! Undergound!

In my bid to beat 2013?s paltry 70-something “books read” total, I’ve re-established this blog’s Book of the Month Club and redoubled my own reading efforts.  Now I’m sure that, next to reading a good book, there’s nothing many of you bibliophiles appreciate more than a good recommendation.  A nd so, in keeping with yet […]

February 15, 2014: Feeling down? I’ve got just the thing for you! And our Stargate: Atlantis rewatch continues with…The Defiant One!

When I informed her that one of my friends had been feeling a little down lately, Akemi’s response was: “Maybe she misses you.”.  Well, yes, I suppose that’s a possibility – but I kind of doubted it.  She doesn’t seem like the “miss you” type.  Akemi, however, would not be dissuaded from her theory.  ”You […]

February 14, 2014: The Hot Chocolate Festival Top 5! Plus 1 for good luck! Our Stargate: Atlantis rewatch continues with…The Eye!

Alas, it was a herculean task and despite my best efforts, I came up short.  In the end, I sampled only 47 of the some 60 varieties of hot chocolate offered for this year’s Hot Chocolate Festival.  Still, 47 hot chocolates in 24 days aint bad, especially considering I took those four days off to […]

February 13, 2014: Final days of the Hot Chocolate Festival! The Stargate: Atlantis rewatch continues with…The Storm! Mailbag!

Hey, check it out!  Akemi packed the dogs a snack box today.  We dropped them off at doggy daycare so that they could work on their social skills and get some exercise.  Lately, they’ve been doing way too much of this - Winding down the hot chocolate festival… Round #20… Big Bad Wolf: A 38% milk […]

February 8, 2014: Surprise!!!

My mother is celebrating her 80th birthday this weekend and I’m in Montreal for the special occasion.  She had no idea I’d be coming and, to ensure word didn’t get out, I kept my travel plans under my hat, not even breathing a word about it on this blog (I mean, face it.  A couple […]

February 11, 2014: Perusing my spam folder! Our April Book of the Month Club winner! The Stargate: Atlantis rewatch continues!

Every so often, I check out my spam folder for erroneously misdirected reader comments.  Last night, amid the 535 quarantined messages, I came across the following: “Brazil shemales” “Star ladyboys” “Big ass shemales” “Trilby hat sales” - I find this offensive, embarrassing and downright disturbing.  How dare they presume I’d wear a trilby hat! Hey, […]

February 10, 2014: Au revoir Montreal!

This morning, it fell on me to dispatch the lobster.  Mom was all for simply dropping them in the pot and boiling them alive but I suggested the more humane method: a quick knife thrust through the head.  She said okay – and then left me to do deal with it.  And when my sister […]

February 9, 2014: Cleaning out a garage full of memories! Vote for our April Book of the Month Club pick!

Today, my mother had me clean out some of the old boxes in the garage – boxes packed full of crap from my early days.  Well, mostly crap.  But a few gems as well… Don’t suppose mom also has an equally obsolete computer to read these? A bag o’ dice!  And not just your standard […]
