The new Dr. Who

Jason ramblingThose of you who knew me as a lad will recall that I was a fan of the BBC series Dr. Who. This was a British science fiction series that started back in the 1950\'s and ran until the 1990\'s. Well, it\'s back and it\'s playing on CBC on Tuesdays at 8 p.m.

Not a good sign.

Crünchy ToastSo I\'m starting my car this morning to go to work and a large cloud of blue smoke was produced from the my car\'s exhaust. This can\'t be good. The smoke quickly subsided but alas I think my 14 year old car is reaching the end of its useful life.

Gomery and the next federal election.

Canadian PoliticsThere\'s much talk in the press about the latest revelations from the Gomery commission\'s look into the sponsorship scandal. Much of this talk, especially in the Alberta press, is speculation when the Conservatives will pull the plug on the government. In Alberta, much of the press is wondering why the Tories haven\'t done so already.

Keeping up with the Quixote....

You scored 40 Holy, 47 Tactful, 90 Natural, and 50 Arcane!
Hmm, you've got the skills, nobody can deny that. You're a hard nut to crack in a fight, you can hound an enemy like no other, you have a connection to the wilderness that borders on supernatural, and the animals back home love you. Don't be fooled by LOTR though, you are not a natural leader. In fact, you're probably a bit of a recluse, and you are reasonably rash. You gave up understanding why humans treat each other so needlessly bad a long time ago, and have just decided to do what you can for the defenseless of us by savaging the people that harm what you love. If everyone were like you this world would be a great place... but since it's not, better get back to hunting evildoers... with uncanny intensity.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 46% on Godliness
You scored higher than 67% on Tact
You scored higher than 96% on Harmony
You scored higher than 64% on Arcane

On Religion and Reproduction.

PoliticsI've been following various discussions on a friend of mine's blog. Issues regarding religion, specifically the religious right vis-a-vis abortion and birth control. Not being one to stand idly by on an issue, I'd thought I'd throw my 2.14 cents worth into the discussion.

Spring Break!

Crünchy ToastOne of the nice things about being a teacher is I get to go on spring break like the kids. The nicer thing about working at AADAC is that I don\'t have a ton of work to catch up on. So I\'ve been working on the model RR, wiring up the computer controls. Mrs. Evil and I also took a trip to Edmonton which was nice and relaxing.

Tories begin to eat their young, again.

Canadian PoliticsWell it didn\'t take long for the conservative news pundits to speak out on the tack the federal Conservative party is taking. Reading through the Calgary Sun on Tuesday (we get both it and the Herald at work) the opinion columns were rife with the usually conservative wogs spewing out their unique brand of vitriol.

Tories head to centre.

Canadian PoliticsSo the federal Tories moved ever so slightly towards the centre. Apparently someone has clued them in to that\'s where the votes are outside of Alberta. What will be interesting is if Harper can hold it all together till the next election.

Back to the gym.

Crünchy ToastI belong to a gym. That being said, it\'s been a few months since I\'ve been there. I just got busy and got out of the habit. So I made a decision to go back. I started off easy last week, heading in Tuesday and Thursday to hit the stationary bike. Then this Sunday I went in and did the bike and my weight routine.

The Tories to “smother” Alliance member.

Alberta PoliticsI was listening to the radio this morning as is my habit and the CBC had a story on the single Alberta Alliance member, Paul Hinman, of the legislature. Basically, the story was saying that the governing PC\'s find the Alliance member\'s presence an irritant.

Now it\'s well known that I find not only the Alliance an irritant, but the PC\'s as well. What\'s different is the way I deal with people from these parties. Since I believe in democracy, I think that if the people have selected someone, then that\'s the way it shall be. That\'s not the way the PC\'s think apparently.
