Grrr to the Brick

Hello to anyone that's still here!

So I've been a bit busy this past summer. Bought a new car, bought our first house, got married. Kind of feel like we haven't had a chance to relax  in about a year. :P
The short version of my story: the Brick sucks and I won't be giving them any more of my business.Collapse )
I'm pretty sure that at the Brick, customer service is a department, and not a company policy.

Bye, bye, bye

Alrighty so I'm about to pack up my computer for the move so play nice while I'm gone from the interwebz. I won't have internet again until Thursday evening  so no huge fandom wanks, and no massive LJ exodus while I'm gone, kay?

Can't Get Enough

I think I'm a little bit in love with Christopher Moore. The man is a genius. What other writer has Santa take a shovel to the head in a Christmas novel? Who else would write about Jesus telling his best friend to frequent prostitutes so that he can understand what knowing a woman is like since Jesus can't know a woman himself? Who else would have the Black Fool from King Lear sexing up an achoress through a wall in the middle of an abbey named Dog Snogging? I'm making my way through all of his novels. I've yet to find one that I don't like, though I find the Pine Cove ones to be less page-turning than the others.

Of all his books I think my favourite is Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. It tells a version of what Jesus' life might have been like during the 30 years that the Bible skips over. I recommend that everyone read it, whether you're religious or not. Having some knowledge of the gospels is helpful but not necessary. Don't worry it's not all preachy if you're not religious. It's a comedy and should be taken as such. But it's also touching and interesting. The only people that I would not recommend this book to is those who don't have a sense of humour about their faith. I don't see anything in it that would offend people since it's so obviously not meant to be taken seriously, but some people are offended by Harry Potter, so what do I know? In my opinion Voltaire said it best: "God is a comedian playing to an audience that is afraid to laugh."

Huh, who knew?

I was just poking around imdb and it turns out that Alastair from Supernatural, is also Todd the Wraith from Stargate: Atlantis. Who knew? Now that I think about it the voice definitely fits, there's just a lot of make up on Todd the Wraith. He was also Zor-El in a couple of early Smallville episodes. Makes sense though since Vancuouver is such a small in-bred acting community.

The more you know.

Hmm...

So apparently ABC/Disney is turning the book "Wizard's First Rule" into a 22 episode mini-series (although in my mind that's not really a mini-series but actually a full season).

*shakes fist angrily at the sky*

It should not SNOW on the 26th of bloody May! Seriously, what the hell? It didn't stay, but still! I live in the Northern Hemisphere! It should be sunshine and daisies right now!

Damn you weather!

WTF, mate? It's cold and snowing! It's almost May! Granted, the snow is melting when it hits the ground, but still. One should not wake up from a nice warm nap, look out the window and see snow on April 26! Global warming, my ass.

Spank me, Santa!

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In June I bought porn for hayleycaite (10 points). Last Friday I ruled Asscrackistan as a cruel and heartless dictator (-700 points). Last month I stole danirosealoise's purse (-30 points). In January I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points). In May I caught a purse-snatcher who stole melbazoid's purse (30 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-698 points). For Christmas I deserve a spanking!

Sincerely,
sparkins_mob

My Favourite Quote

The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don’t just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.
