Today is the National Day of Remembrance of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. One of the defining moments for Canada, Lethbridge played an important part. Soldiers from the 20th and 39th batteries of the Royal Canadian Artillery fought in this battle. A monument to those soldiers stands at the 18th Air Defence Regiment Armoury, which since has been renamed the Vimy Ridge Armoury.
Like the time I stepped into the proton acceperator, I experimented last week with daily event updates. Needless to say, Ziggy said I wouldn’t leap again until I went back to the weekly mega-post, so here you go.
If you have something you’d like to see listed, email Sam. I’ll probably be having a baby or something next.
It was a slow week, that’s for sure. The biggest news was that our Mayor Bob Tarleck was found having an affair with a former city-council member, which I had to make up. Granted, it was an April Fools joke. I’ve been running on fumes lately and that was the best I could come up with! Literally, I wish the gas company would fix this leak.
When it comes to poo smells, Robert Pattinson actually doesn’t have bad breath. This according to famous singer Adaline, who recently got to meet the sparkly-hunk-vampire-actor who played Edward Cullen in Twilight.
Well, I guess that sums it up, so I’m going to light up a smoke. You can lecture me about it later…
Well there goes my last tooth. I guess it makes it easier to suckle, at least.
Cripes! I was definitely going to post this much earlier, but my Netscape was down. I called Shaw and they said they needed to reboot the Internet because the tubes got clogged earlier today. For a second, I was worried that my MAC got the Conficker virus. Phew.
For those of you who haven’t made plans already, check out one of these shows.
Here’s an update to my post earlier this week:
It seems that Vancouver musician Adaline is winning more than just the heart Robert Pattinson, but rather fans from across the world. Beyond the +30,000 plays on her MySpace page, she is now featured in CHARTattack, the Vancouver Sun and even the National Post.
“What is most touching is that many of you have said that even though you came across my website because of my chance meeting with Robert, that many of you are staying because of my music. This is why I make music — so I can share it with you. So thank you for the kind words — for telling me which songs are speaking to you — for passing on my website to your friends and family. I am so grateful.” – Adaline
As a token of her appreciation she is also offering a free MP3 download of her hit single, “Whiter/Straighter.”
For those who don’t have a clue, Robert Pattinson played Edward Cullen in Twilight and Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter. And he sparkles in the sun.
Keep up the great momentum, Adaline!
Karla informed me that the ULFC is holding a 12-hour film marathon this Saturday. The goal of the marathon is to raise enough funds to grow their film library, so that members have access to all previously screened films.
We are asking participants to get themselves pledged to watch films! Asking family, friends or colleges to pledge you for the Film Marathon is all that we ask. We are giving away some great prizes for those who get the most pledges and who last the longest (it is 12 hours of film watching!). Prizes include: Gift Certificates from Backstreet (west), B.O.B Headquarters Swag, Infamous Swag, Gift Certificates from the Pita Pit, etc.
I guess that means I’ll need to break out the adult diapers and Cheetos, since I fully intend to win those gift certificates. You don’t believe me? Yeah, I suppose I wear them on a regular basis anyway, which reminds me I need a change. Mom!
Last night, I welcomed fellow geeks Windy and Jeddy to Lethbridge. As representative of the Lethbridge Welcoming Committee, I pulled out all the stops. They even paid for the beer. That’s right, they bought ME beer, because that’s how we roll in Lethbridge. Like Wimp Lo said, “I am more bloody, therefore I win.”
That was a lot of beer, though. But I sure taught the pavement a lesson! Here’s what’s going down tonight.
Well, that settles it. Of all days to bundle up because of the cold weather, it has to be on National Cleavage Day. Granted, it’s not really a Canadian holiday…not yet, at least. Starting small, I’m about to change all that. I’ve already caught a few glances of my man cleavage being observed and am feeling very empowered.
According to Samantha Paterson, the brand manager for Wonderbra, the National Cleavage Day started according to a design to solemnize women’s independence and power in all facets of life, from their careers to their relationships to their own destiny.
Paterson explained, “It gives women a chance to be beautiful and glow in the furtive, yet appreciative, glances their cleavage evokes from men. It gives men a legitimate reason to stare at boobs”.
For an April Fools day, you’d think better things would be going on around town. Doing my part, I’ve been going around switching people’s regular coffee with dark, sparkling Folgers crystals. Let’s see if they notice the difference.
If there’s one thing I enjoy, it’s
stalking people watching. So when some friends invited me to the Home & Garden Trade Show, I jumped at the opportunity (with secret hopes that I would run into a certain someone). Instead, I just saw this guy. He looked very relaxed, so I blamed a fart on him and went on my way, taking photos of other random folks.
