Although this doesn’t have much to do with Lethbridge, it’s close enough. It seems that Leonard Nimoy, aka Spock, son of Sarek, is passing through Vulcan whilst on his way to the Calgary Comic Expo.
The Town of Vulcan is gearing up for a visit from Mr. Spock himself. Leonard Nimoy will drop by April 23rd as part of the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. Vulcan Tourism Coordinator, Dayna Dickens, says the actor will make a special appearance before the expo gets started. She says because Nimoy has been a great ambassador for Vulcan, the Expo will bring him to the town the day before for a visit. Even though it’s not a Vulcan Tourism event, Dickens says the town is still planning a few surprises for when Nimoy visits and has commissioned a bronzed bust of Mr.Spock.
I’ve been a huge fan of Star Trek for most of my nerdy life, with “The Next Generation” being my favourite. So for me, I think it’s even cooler that Brent Spiner, aka Data, will be a special guest for the expo! And though I am a little disappointed that Beverly Crusher and Dianna Troi aren’t making an appearance as well, this expo sounds about as hot as a Betazoid wedding. Which is embarrassingly hot!

I came across this great song by The Rural Alberta Advantage the other day. It’s called “The Dethbridge in Lethbridge.” Just listen:
To listen to more of their music, head over to CBC Radio 3.
With an upcoming refresh to the Canadian edition of Monopoly, you can throw around money like our very own city council! Though Lethbridge is one of many Canadian cities who are nominated to appear in the game, we Lethbians must vote for our city to secure it’s spot.
MONOPOLY is launching a new Canadian Edition and is inviting Canadians to vote for their favourite cities. The vote will determine the top 20 cities and the top 2 wildcard cities that will be the property spaces on the MONOPOLY Canada game board. Please vote for your friend’s cities or choose your own cities!
On a side thought, this reminds me of the “Lethbridge On Board” game from about six years back. Has anyone even played that?

Recently, my masseuse left this city and took her golden hands along with her. My body delights in rubs and kneads, and I find myself missing her touch upon my body.
Luckily, Lethbridge College’s Massage Therapy students need some hands-on experience, so they are running massage clinics three days a week this semester, from 5:30-8PM Tuesdays and Thursdays and 9:30AM-noon and 1-3:30PM on Saturdays. Twenty dollars gets you an hour, while $10 for 30-min.
What they lack in experience they make up for in fervour, so treat yourself and go for a massage! Call Joanna at 403-320-3211 to set up an appointment.
This Sunday, the Olympic torch will make it’s way through Lethbridge. Starting at 4PM, the torch will travel across the High Level Bridge towards Henderson Lake, where the Celebration Cauldron will be lit
and goats sacrificed at 6PM.
The day features many indoor/outdoor events, and fireworks will cap off the evening celebrations.

My mom, who is more connected than Twitter, gave me the heads up that the Galt Museum once again will be holding their popular “Scotch & Burns” event on January 22.
Join the Galt for this verrry special celebration of the Scottish poet’s birth. Try haggis, join in on the songs, and enjoy performances by the Lethbridge Highland Dancers and Lethbridge Scottish Country Dance Club, all followed by a Scotch Tasting [tickets at the event]. This year, event honours and commemorates long-time supporter Stewart Christie. You don’t have to be Scottish to attend!
Admission is $3 and kids under 6 get in free! Since scotch is an acquired taste, it’s best to train one’s palate by starting young.

Recently, I had the opportunity to contribute a guest strip for Zac Erickson‘s web comic, Team Jetpack 104. I thought it’d be cool to interview Zac and let Lethbridge in on his work. And since we’re both geeks, we did it using Google Wave (verdict: cool).
Interview is after the jump. Enjoy!

It’s getting to be that time of the season again, where rejected reindeer volunteer their time to drive folks inebriated with holiday cheer home, in their own cars no less.
Lethbridge’s “Operation Red Nose” kicks off November 27th and runs every Thursday, Friday and Saturday up until New Years Eve. So if you plan on celebrating the holidays with drunken enthusiasm, ensure you get home safely by calling 403-320-4155. Or else chance coming home with me.

Lethbridge Fashion Weekend, where "cold gets cool," starts tomorrow evening with a hot & sexy fashion show, and continues the next day with an exclusive sale of original clothing and accessories.
The Lethbian Lover, who has an affinity for camel toe, will be taking in the show as per usual. It will be held at 7PM the Lethbridge Legion, so you may see me standing at attention.
