Alberta - God's Forgotten Land

Sure it's beautiful. Majestic landscapes, natural beauty, fresh air ... yada yada yada. I really do like Alberta, so do not take this post the wrong way.

I truly believe Alberta has been forgotten by God, Allah, Yaweh, Buddha, Ron L. Hubbard, who ever you choose to believe in. Why you ask? Well the most basic answer is - It has been in the -30's here (YES MINUS 30'S) for almost a week. The normal temperature for this time of year is a rumoured minus 3. I don't know if I believe that, but it is on record so I suppose it may be true.

What happened to global warming? I knew it was a total farce. Al Gore has been lying to us for years.

Oh yeah, I watched a great doc the other day. As some of you might know, one of my favorite things to do is to watch docs. I feel so much smarter after watching even a ridic one. I finally got to watch Wordplay. It was great and now I am trying to get into crossword puzzles. I have gotten pretty good at the USA Today crossword puzzle, but my goal is to become good at the NY Times puzzles. They are apparently the gold standard in crossword puzzles.

Ok all. Hope everyone is warmer than we are here. Wait ... I am pretty sure ANTARCTICA is warmer than we are here.

Iris Ain't Got No Love for the West Coast??

This is a quote from Snoop Dogg. It was right before the whole Biggie/Tupac fiasco, and while I am no Snoop D O double G, I don't have any love for the west coast. I hate the west coast in fact. They are all going to get swallowed up by a big earthquake, (seriously, NBC did a made for tv movie about it a couple years ago) and then Alberta will finally be the coastal province it was meant to be.

Ok, so that is not the only reason I hate the west coast. I don't know, I have always imagined myself as an east coast kinda girl. I like TO better than Van, I like NY better than LA. (I like dental appointments more than I like LA) and the RAIN! How do people deal with it?? I am very controlled by the weather and rain messes me up more than anything. Give me four inches of snow rather than a bunch of rain. Although I do love walking in the rain, there is something almost cleansing about it, but I don't shower regularly, so maybe that is it.

Ok, I do this a lot to you guys, I know, but I need at least 10 good reasons why Vancouver is a decent major city to live in. I think it is a bit of a joke. I mean come on! What the hell good has EVER come out of Van? And no, I don't want the ocean and the mountains to be counted as reasons. Those are bullshit, you don't become a cool city b/c you are lucky enough to have those surrounding you. Slave Lake isn't cool b/c of the lake ... same thing!

So send in all those reasons, however few there may be. I going through some heavy shit right now and need some help making a decision with my life.

Thanks dudes!

Well well well

I reluctantly came back to Edmonton months ago. I didn't want to be here. Sure, I loved the thought of seeing my friends and family, but I wanted to be elsewhere. I still do, I cannot lie. I feel as though I need a spark in my life, and what better spark than moving?

Well, I have been here for a while and it seems to me that I am enjoying being here. I am no longer in the depths of despair, thinking constantly about how my life has done a 180. Rather, I am enjoying my life here again. The comforts of this city are too vast for me not to enjoy being home. And it is always great to know you don't HAVE to sit at home on an antsy Thursday night. I have friends here who are willing to go out for a beer, and I don't have to be the creepy one at the bar getting hammered by herself.

Good times to be had by all.


But working the front desk again is killing me! When Jarod broke my ankle, he did irreparable damage to it!
