sorry, I just had to get that out of my system. I update my Facebook far more often than my own blog, how sad is that? Also I realized something, I can have the best of both worlds, see my blog automatically updates on my Notes section of the book of face so it works out pretty well.

Well, Anime Expo is a little more than a month away, and what do I have done? Plane ticket? Done, Hotel room? DONE. Passsport? Uh...not done, at all. Thats one of the last hurdels for me standing between me and my vacation. I am going at it full force though, but I still need all kinds of stuff from different people an blah, blah, BLAH.

Anyway, for those not in the know, I am headed for a blind date on Thursday tomorrow. This makes me really excited and scared at teh same time, but hopefully it will work out tomorrow. Which means I wont be attending soccer tomorrow! Sorry Missionaries! But this is my Friday night, and I need to leave for work in roughly a half hour so its all good.

Also a bit of sad news, since there is roughly a month left for prepping for AX, I fear I might not be able to get done my Link cosplay I had previously planned. if I had complete, and full days to work on this, I could probably get it done, even on my tight schedule and budget. Maybe I wont cosplay this year, and just have fun, for the past two years I had been dressing up and gathering people together and running the show, but this year, I figure I might take it easy at AX, since its going to be the only vacation time I get. I need to run to the forums over at and tell them the bad news...

Well...I just thought I would update you guys on current events spiraling around in my life. OH a Mental Note just popped into my head:

Never leave money in your pocket. Put it directly into your wallet/purse/container for holding said monies. Trust me, you wont regret it. Like I did Monday after pulling a 20 and then loosing it.

I happened to stumble across this...

I found something very interesting just now from Google. Take a moment to read over this webpage.

This suddenly reminds me of a very scary computer program that has been pretty much the central role in four movies so far. Do you know what Im thinking of? Skynet.

Google has crafted their own version of Skynet. Is anyone worried about this? I mean, just reading it over, it creeps me out to no end; although I will admit, life could be a whole lot better when Google manages to get into every electronic device created. Think you could be downtown somewhere wanting really good curry. You would get out your phone, and say: Downtown Calgary, good Curry.

And viola! It would find it for you. 'Course it already can do that on my iPhone but still, its kind of creepy that Google would go in this direction. Its even made its own webpage.

As you may have noticed...

I update my facebook account far more often than my own blog so the main question for myself is this: do I continue my blog and make the occasional post and go about normal, or do I drop my blog entirely? It's quite the drama within myself at the moment. I will expand on this tomorrow as I am currently on route to the church.

Movie Review: Star Trek

So its been quite a long time since Ive done one of these but its completely worth it. Star Trek is, I think, one of the best movies to kick-start the summer movie blockbusters.

I love how they explain the backstories of both Spock and Kirk, its really cool, I would never have thought that they both had such a deep and troubeled backrounds. It was really impressive. The dialog was as good as the actors, whom were AMAZING; it felt to me, that they were really trying to convey the characters before they had their trademark sayings and actions. This movie just blew me away, it was really good.

I can honestly say that this has re-booted the Star Trek series and we are going to see a number of different series and perhaps more movies staring these awesome actors. I really reccomend it to everyone, even if your only slightly interested in Sci-Fi, you will love this movie.

So....Swine Flu

Its here in the Great North, there have been 6 cases reported here in Alberta and frankly; Im not worried. I mean sure, there is the real possiability of this turning ugly but for the most part, I think people are kind of over-reacting about the whole thing.

Yes it comes from pigs, yes the symptoms are basically the flu. Everyone on the entire planet has had the flu at some point or another so why make a big deal out of this one? I just dont see the need to be over-active about this thing, the world is up in arms over it, but I think it wont be that bad.

I know there have been well over 100 deaths in Mexico, but I personally think that generally, the worst is over. I dont expect this thing to turn huge like everyone is panicking about, if you really want to find out how bad this could be, go play a game called Pandemic II. In fact, it wouldnt be that hard to re-create the sceniaro in the game...Hm...a game could offer incrediable insight into all of this...
