Last night was a pretty fun night. I take the bus to and from work, traveling from Edmonton, where I live, to Sherwood Park, where I work. It is about a twenty minute ride and the Sherwood Park transit system is really good. Recently, Sherwood Park had purchased a bunch of double-decker busses and has been running them since December.

I’d like to think I’m not easily shocked. That there is very little that could disturb me. And I’m not. And there isn’t.

These are two reality shows I watch with a fair bit of regularity, primarily because I enjoy watching people do things rather than watch people acting like just-released convicts that won some sort of meth lottery. Although I must admit Survivor does have its fair share of devious behaviour, […]
I recently watched a documentary on Lemmy from Motorhead on Netflix and it was pretty good. Some things about Lemmy that surprised me: He has a penchant for denim cut off short shorts. He is in his sixties and drinks alcoholically, regularly uses speed, and appears to chain smoke. Yet he seems to be in fine health, looks pretty good for his age, and by all reports has never been […]
