I just called to get the phone hooked up in my new house, turns out they will be able to do it on Wednesday. Not the day after tomorrow, but a week from the day after tomorrow. Please excuse the lack of blogging. This is going to cause havoc for my stats. Oh well. Talk to you in a week and two days.


It is so good to be back in Halifax. My friends even had a sign waiting for me at the airport:
Welcome Home Gourd
as in the small, pumpkin-like vegetable.

We partied, and this time, I refrained from handing out my web address to random boys.
But barely.


Even Saddam's son drinks Miller Genuine Draft. In his love shack.

Fortune cookie from Dim Sum: Your dearest wish will come true.

I am a Megnut. I help to empower expression while getting money for commentating and speaking -- or try to anyway.
This according to 'What type of blogger are you' quiz.

I went to see I Mother Earth last night. The show was fun, but today I'm a lot more of the tired, and not so much of the not tired. but the best part of the show was the drive there.
I have said before that I live in the ghetto. Now I know this to be true.
Veela picked me up, and we drove down our street to find police cars, a TV news truck, and lots of people milling about. As we got closer, we saw a group of about five or six men wearing decontamination suits and masks outside a family home. One man was even wearing the hardcore gas mask, like on tv. Immediately, we thought SARS, in our neighbourhood, which was pretty exciting. So we went and got gas, turned around and drove back up the street. We pulled up to a group of very sketchy looking people, and I rolled down my window.

me [very polite]: "excuse me, do you know what is going on here?"
bearded old man [in a tone that made it sound like I was an idiot for not knowing]: "drug bust"

so it wasn't quite SARS. but still pretty good.


To those who found this page by searching for necrophilia, morticians and iraqi porn -- seek help.
I'm not sure which is more disturbing. that people search for that, or the fact that their search brought them to me. yikes.

What Simpsons character are you? I'm Disco Stu.

Maybe this means that spontaneous combustion is a thing of the past. Unfortunately, it also means that we may now perform poorly in mazes. Which could be problematic, if you have a habit of wandering around cornfields.

four more days.


It finally happened to me too... Not multiple times for me, like it was for Veela. But once is better then not at all.
I've been googled.
[keywords: the hottest state]


Disturbing. Really disturbing. Personally, I like music for the music. Not the artists reputation. Especially if said reputation involves killing and eating people.
From pixelsurgeon.

Now I'm the jealous one. Static gets googled. For cool things like 'iraqi porn' and 'pretty pixie pictures'. What is a girl to do?!
[ed. note: maybe get a real life??]


I think that Static is jealous of Veela and I. Or the histrionic side of his personality is much greater then any of us thought.

This can only be a good thing.
From CBC: "Where do babies come from? Not Sackville."

Another Joke of the Day: So this giraffe walks into a bar. He goes up to the bartender and orders a beer. The bartender says, 'Hey, buddy, that'll be 25 dollars.' The giraffe pays him and the bartender says, 'We don't get many giraffes in here.' The giraffe says, 'At your prices, I'm not surprised.'

Joke of the Day:
So this string walks into a bar. He goes up to the bartender and orders a beer. The bartender says, 'Hey, buddy, we don't serve string here.' The string goes back outside, ruffs himself up in the street, curls up, and walks back into the bar. He goes up to the bartender and orders a beer. The bartender says, 'Hey, buddy, are you a string?’ The string says, 'No, I'm a frayed knot.'
Get it? a frayed knot. Oh, so clever!

And peeing your way to freedom. It can be done.

I think that I've found a cause that we can all rally around. Sign it and tell your friends.


They are making a new Knight Rider.
No David Hasselhoff, but he will executive produce, so we can only hope that he will find someone of his own calibre to replace him as Michael Knight.
Thanks to my buddy Sean, who's blog I pilfered this link from.

The inter-office quest for blog supremacy is reaching new heights. I'm scared. And they're e-pimping.


I enjoy driving home with Veela and discovering that all those crazy things my family does are not just limited to my family. Maybe it is limited by region, but that is a bit more okay. Table scarfs, anyone? I know where you could find a pretty purple one. Or seven.

I felt like such a grown up when I was coming home from work today. I had dry cleaning. Grown ups have dry cleaning, not me. My mom would be proud.

It isn't just a rumour. There is a Dirty Dancing 2. It's called Havana Nights, starring Lucky, from General Hospital and some random 15 year old. I'm apprehensive, I must admit.

I'm no longer homeless... Well, I was never actually homeless, but the potential was definitely there. Such a relief. I can't wait to move out of the ghetto.


Nothing but the best for CofK employees. SARS protection kits (Glad gardening gloves and Purell hand sanitizer). I feel safer already.

As someone who is somewhat involved with pr and advertising, I found this ad quite amusing. Oh SARS. Always good for a laugh.

Yet another article about the whole blogging thing. Pretty interesting.

According to PopBitch, Necrophilia is about to get banned in Britain. The forthcoming Sexual Offences Bill includes a clause that will, for the first time, make it a crime to have sex with a corpse. However, morticians will be exempt from this law. As will those who penetrate any part of a dead body "fully believing the person to be alive, but who is in fact dead, or unexpectedly dies during intercourse".


Well. I just checked my bank balance, thinking that my money had been put into my savings account earlier then I had thought. Turns out CofK decided not to pay me for last week. Curses.

"It takes the joy out of stalking if the prey is willing." - Veela (referring to her stalker-by-proxy tendencies.)

The unintentionally poetic words of Donald Rumsfeld at a Department of Defense news briefing (02/12)
As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don't know
We don't know.

And a favourite quote of mine:
"They came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. . . . Then they came for me, and by that time, nobody was left to speak up."

-- Pastor Martin Niemoeller 1945

I couldn't think of a better headline on my own. All I want for Christmas is a Bombed-Out Dollhouse.


I have a confession to make. I am the annoying person in your apartment building. I stockpile an ungodly amount of laundry, then sneak to the basement laundry room and use every washer and dryer. I have no remorse. Just a little bit of embarassment when someone catches me. But you can't stop me.

And the blogoution has started. The other Megan (aka pixieshine) is now a blogger.

Proof that love is blind. The worst bridesmaid dresses ever.

It is no surprise that big brother is watching. However, It is quite amusing that big brother is repeatedly having problems distinguishing a 71 year old retired english teacher from a suspected terrorist and a woman from someone who has a similar name, but is an Australian man 20 years her junior.

Veela has created a blog. I enjoy it already. Even if her and Static have more fans then I do.


Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%. How about achieving 103% ? Here's a little math that might prove helpful...
is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11 = 98%
11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96%
1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100%
2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%

So, it stands to reason that hard work and knowledge will get you close, attitude will get you there, and bullshit will put you over the top.

no personal trainer, no pool, flying coach... Some people have it really tough. Just ask , Jim Carrey's daughter.

The main blogger page links sites that were recently published.
I enjoy these ramblings. Pink Plaid Face.

Damned if I can figure out that whole comment part. Oh well. Trevor, you can just yell your comments over the cubicle wall.
I fixed the Morning News link below.


I really enjoy Margaret Barry's writing. You can read The Morning News or her personal site, Mighty Girl


David Hasselhof has a new puppy. Named Sir Henry Von Hasselhof. You can see the pup here. What ever happened to my night rider?! As time goes by.... I lose more and more respect.
In other interesting celebrity news, Mariah Carey has a "positioner" on her staff. He accompanies her everywhere, and his only job is to get her into the right position every time she's on camera.
(FYI: her correct "position" while doing interviews is: leg nearest camera out straight, other leg bent, one arm over chair/sofa, tits out, pointed at camera. Watch next time and check)

Sometimes you have certain friends, but you are just not sure where they came from or why you keep them around. Here is a handy chart explaining the different types of unwanted friends. Thanks Stephanie.


i don't even know why i'm posting this. i think it is one of those things that is so disturbing you just have to pass it on.
so, here it is. Everything you ever wanted to know about having sex with dolphins. don't say i didn't warn you, this stuff is W E I R D. Thanks Trevor, I think.


Pray for George W? One would think that the US Marines would have other things to worry about, but it's not an April Fools joke. Marines are encouraged to tear out a section of a pamphlet called "A Christian's Duty" and mail it to the White House, pledging the soldier has been praying for the president. Between this and the plans for "Christianizing the Enemy", I'm getting kinda scared.
