okay so I lied. one more entry before I leave.

the Fox network is stupid. They had this new show that started and I rather liked it. Drive. about an illegal cross country road race run by a mysterious "they" who occationally kidnap people and force there loved ones to race to get them back. It was really interesting. good character dynamics and development, interesting premice and best of all, cool cars driving fast.

it was been airing for a little over ONE WEEK. and they cancelled it. Okay, so there were 4 episodes released, but 3 of them were within 2 days. There's hardly enough time for people to find out about it! I know a lot of people who were intending to watch it but were busy the weekend it came out. I can't tell you how often I remember about shows I wanted to watch 2 or 3 weeks after they start. What really annoys me is that they replaced it with more reruns of House. now, House is a good show. but reruns??? I would rather see something new anyday. and I am still not gonna watch 24.

And this is certainly not the first good show they screwed over. Family guy, Futurama, Wonderfalls, Dark Angel, True Calling, FIREFLY. Thats it. I do not watch fox shows ANYMORE! they just get my hopes up. okay, maybe after a shows first full season. the trouble is that they pick up good shows and then don't give them a chance to be found by the public to be good. especially to the sci-fi public. It also doesn't help that they are often unadvertized and aired out of order. you just can't air Science fiction shows out of order! it usually screws up the explaination of the world. If it is a drama about relationships, fine. everyone already knows the premice and setting behind falling in love with your stepbrother or having an affair. you don't have to explain the rules of the world and culture its set in.

There is a serious shortage of good Science Fiction shows. that aren't another rehash of Star Trek, and they keep teasing us with interesting things, and then desiding we aren't a big enough audience to justify it. I would rather have NO sci fi then 6 or 8 shows with only 6 episodes each! (or less)

I'm TV depressed. I have no sci fi to watch. BSG is done for a year, Stargate is gone. Atlantis is on break. Dresden Files is on an unexplained just-not-there break (cancelled?). Lost is stupid now. Jericho doesn't really count as Sci fi. although the US does get blowed up which is kinda interesting. at least Heroes is back. And I am gonna miss it for the next two weeks. *sigh*

I'm gonna find something good to watch.

We know where we are goin now. Turns out, not ALL the flights to Hawaii were full. and we spend 3 weeks figuring out what was going on, just to end up goin where and when we were originally planning! so YAY! I am going to Hawaii next week! Hee Hee. Our hotel is in Waikiki near the beach. Should be lots of fun. Its 30c there at the moment. its only 15 here.

The only unfun thing is the 14 hour travel day on the way home. we have a 5 hour layover in San Fransisco. So anyone know if there is anything interesting to do at the SanFransisco airport? For 5 hours. oh well. Lots of reading and Cribbage, I think.

anyway, I think this will be the last blog from me until I get back (and jump right back into school :-( *sigh* ) in a couple weeks. not that I am super punctual with writing on a regular basis or anything. But thats just me. And seeing as how this blog is (almost) only read by me, it works :-p

now, I am off to tropical beaches! (in a few days)

PS: Heroes is back today! YAY!

What the heck?

grrrr. This google blog thing is annoying me! I"m okay with switching accounts, but it wouldn't switch my blog over, and now I have to redo my about section. what a pain. I hate having to redo things I already had just the way I liked it! *sigh*

On another WTF note, we aren't going to Havana anymore. our booking got scooped before we had actually gotten it booked apparently. Which sucks. Now we have no idea where we are going. and we were suppost to leave two weeks from now! I was getting edgy about not having details for Hawaii at the end of march! I like to know what I am doing! I need to book a doctors appointment, and next months days off work, and get my sister to come over for a weekend! but I can't do any of that until we find out when/where/if we have a holiday. On the other hand, it is being paid for by someone else who is arranging it, so I am not gonna complain to loudly and am very greatful to be going anywhere she wants to send us (mostly). but I am gonna sit here and fret that I don't know what I am doing for the next month sometime.

Well, thats it for now. the only other thing going on is exams, but I don't really feel like talking about those! :-p

I was never here.

Holiday in Havana

Okay, so the airline we were booked on for our trip to Hawaii is "reorganizing". meaning our tickets where refunded. and everyone is booked full to compinsate. So no Hawaii for us! However, the lady who was sending us got us 10 days at a 5 star resort in Havana instead. While Cuba is not in my top ten list of places to visit, I can definately handle a nice resort anywhere they wanna send me! :-)

Its all inclusive, meals, activities, pool, dance lessons, snorkling, the whole 9 yards. I"m excited. should be much fun! course that means that I have to go shopping and get carribean appropriate clothing. and clothes good enough for the dress code in the resteraunt.

Anyway, back to work still got 3 weeks until holiday time!!

And the Best Husband Ever Award goes too........

My Man is on a roll. Its been almost a year since the wedding, and he is getting sweeter now then he was then. Its all in the little things. I"m making a list of Gord is awesome. True is not roses and chocolates and poetry. but is IS the important things.

1: He listens. AND acts!
4 days ago, I mentioned wanting to make cinnimon buns, but that I didn't have the time. yesterday, he comes home from visiting his parents, store bought cinnimon buns in hand. 3days later! clever man.

2: I don't have to ask.
I"ve just had a long day writing a paper. for the last 8 hours. my shoulders and neck hurt. suddenly, he comes into the room and places a heated stress pad around my shoulders. mmmmm.

3: Kisses, LOTS of kisses.
at random intervals. usually just when I am getting frustrated with this paper.

4: He is interested
He occationally asks me how things are going, how far I am, and if I am okay. always nice.

5: Random neck massage
no complaints here!

6: He knows when to just go away!
despite the fact that I am in his usual room of entertainment, he has more or less left me alone. gotta admit, I tend to be destracted when he is in the room, especially when he is playing a game or watching a show behind me. apparently he knows that. Good boy.

7: Cooking.
I just got called to dinner. that I didn't make or mention anything about. Yay for him!

and I am gonna go eat!!
