how do lose 60 pounds in minutes? just shave a sheep. right about now im getting a "what the hell is he talking about" look. well, in new zealand thats what happened. apparantly, as the story goes, a sheep was avoiding getting its annual wooly shearing for 6 yrs. it finally came off and the wool is being put up for auction on ebay. which begs the question who needs wool? i dont know. interesting story, dontcha think?

i think i found my happy outlet. while playing on the pogo website a few weeks back, i ended up striking a conversation with someone in a chat room. her and i became very good friends in the short time that weve known each other. despite our age difference, we like to talk - alot. she like to bug me too. courtney is truly a good friend. hopefully well meet face to face. until then well talk like the wind. laterz

geez, what a windstorm! we had gusts of 100km/hour around 8pm today. the wind took off a couple of roofs from a couple townhouses. even the almost 100 yr old christmas in leduc got toppled over. the tree was in a middle of a move to telford place and had just been planted and held up with cables when one of the cables snapped during the windstorm. the tree was moved to make room for a strip mall on the property from which the tree once stood. a lady living there has a sentimental value to it because her grandfather planted it in 1905 and prevented it from getting it chopped down. hopefully the 80 ft tree survives the move. well see.

good thing the trappers started their season in yuma, arizona, instead of here. edmonton got theier april snowfall today, and by the looks of the forecast, the snow wont go away until friday when it supposed to warm up. im still looking forward to the 24, when the trappers come home. gotta have my baseball kicks before they leave. we did get a northern league team to start in 2005. so we wons suffer without baseball after the trappers leave for round rock after this season.

its gotta be friday when..... i watch "while you were out." what's that you ask? w.y.w.o. has gotta be the awesomest home reno show ever. its when a person sends their loved one (spouse) or roomate out for two days while their room or bedroom or whatever gets totally transformed and remoddeled. quite the show. most of the time it comes down to the wire. andrew dan-jumbo - an awesome carpenter. jason cameron is a close second. leslie segrete - a very cool seamstress and sometimes helps andrew or jason with the carpentry. ali barone is pretty good too. john bruce is a very funky designer. his room designs is always an experiment in progress. chayse dacota - cool as a cucumber designer, yet a perfectionist. steven st. onge is a designer who brings a part of the world to the room being designed (italian or old world) evan farmer is a fun and witty host. i still miss teresa strasser. witty, gets her hands dirty, and very cute. very fun show.
