Day 311

The movie de jour is up. Day 228

I've got not much going on right now.  Not a ton to say.

Been hanging out a bunch on Letterboxd.  Which I think I mentioned the other day.  Just sort of sitting here wondering when the heat is going to break some?
So the blogathon I did yesterday was a failure.  No one joined and I have this meaningless post on the challenge blog.  Very depressing don't you think?

So the blog time on here is getting smaller and smaller and I'm really thinking that once I hit 0, I'm going to start on here with something a bit more ... healthy. 

I think.

Day 310

I need some zombie movies for the movie challenge.  

I joined this movie site.  Well, a few movie sites actually, but I'm like totally addicted to Letterboxd. 
I see myself spending days on there listing movies I've seen over the years.   The only thing is, every time I try to list old movies from the 80's or that are Canadian or really hard to find ones,  I get told they don't exist.
once again the big blockbusters get all the attention.

So, if you have any favourite zombie films,  please leave me a comment

Day 309

The movie de jour is up.  Day 226

As I mentioned yesterday, little disappointed that my blogathon has not gathered momentum.  I've posted about it on many of my own sites, as well as having two listings over on a movie bloggers group.

I've gotten more hits to that blog post in the last few days then I have on any other post in the last three months, but yet no one is entering.
I feel cheap. 

Anyways, it's got me thinking about what my next project - blogging challenge- should be. 

Which of course, I won't start until the current one is finished at the end of the year.  But, I'm sort of getting the planning stages in place for the next one.

Day 308

Just got back from physio therapy.  It went well.  It was the last day for the student therapists, so it was a quieter day there.

I'm sitting here now, thinking I should try to go for a short walk.  I haven't been doing so as much as my therapist has advised me to in the last few weeks.

I don't have a whole lot to say right now.  Just, feeling like I need to get this down.  Ever have one of those days where you get so rattled only you have no idea why?
It's one of those days. 
I had a strange conversation with the one student therapist that has left me wondering about something.  yes, I'm going to be cryptic on this. 

And the movie blog... my blogathon.  Epic failure it would seem.  But I'll write more about that on the weekend.

Day 307

The movie de jour is up. Day 223

Little disappointed on the blogathon. I've had a bunch of hits for it, but no one has signed up for it yet. I guess, if this fails, there's no need to try another one.

We have had rain and thunder storms off and on since last night.  My kind of weather.  Only, it's knocked out the cable and internet few times.  So that's not so good.

The cable, which means still at mother's. I've had two near falls in the last few days and now no one trusts me to be alone.  My mother hid my keys to my apartment.  Hid them!  you hide the car keys for a drunk you don't hide apartment keys on a cripple.
I'm starting to feel like a prisoner. I stopped feeling like an adult months ago.

I was trying to make pancakes for supper, but had to give up mid way because I could not stand in the kitchen long enough.

It's been a long few months and it's taking it's toll on me.

day 306

How much can we really juggle?

I blog.  It's all I seem to do anymore, and I'm not devoting my time to anything solidly.
I blog about wrestling, I blog about movies, I blog about my health, I blog about relationships and I'm suppose to be blogging about cooking and books but at the moment I've had to put those two topics on hold.

I have not had a chance to do anything video wise in months. Then again, most of the videos I was doing were for the cooking and wrestling blogs.

I wanted to create a "newspaper"  online but the format for that only runs through twitter and facebook. So that was out of the question. Which sort of sucked.  I'd still like to find a way to do an online paper to sort of combine everything so that the few readers I have don't have to spend hours jumping around so much to check to see if I've updated that day.

I don't get paid to blog.  I've thought about signing up for stuff to earn money blogging but it just doesn't feel right. Not for me. 

And I'm still waiting to hear back about the second surgery.  Which is driving me nuts.

day 305

Long day.
The movie de jour is up.  Day 221

I'm not sure how many more of these uber hot days I can take?  We sat here today with a +29c with a +32c humidex.
That's just like being in an oven.
The heat still hasn't let up yet here and the sun has been down for almost an hour.

That's about all I have for tonight.
catch you on the flip side

Day 304

Being stuck inside all the time, and still stuck at my mother's, I was feeling like nothing could bring me out of my blahs.   That was until I rented a vampire movie this afternoon.
The movie de jour is Day 220. Vampire film

I was checking out some of the scrapbooking sites yesterday and saw some of the previews for the new season's line of scrapbook supplies.  And this is where I totally geek out more then I just did about the vampire movie and say, I'm totally looking forward to the Hallowe'en designs from DCWV and SEI.

I can just see their products this season having more of an impact then usual given that by the fall the last episode of Twilight will be in cinema and Dark Shadows will be on DVD by then.  There are just so many scrapbookers out there that I've come across in the last while who have done many many projects centered around Twilight and Johnny Depp.

Day 303

Ever get the feeling your life is not your own?
The more time I spend online the more I feel that way.   I checked some comments on my cooking blog just now and saw all these odd hits from Facebook on there.
I have no idea how my blog got linked on there.  It's not really something I would do.  And if I did, it was a million years ago when Facebook first came out.

I'm actually finding many social network style sites linking to my stuff more and more, and none of it by me.  Should I be flattered or frightened?

I just keep reminding myself that celebrities go through this every minute of every day. Most of them seem to not be bothered by it.

Day 302

I had come in here to post something, but the phone rang and now I can't remember what I had come in to talk about.
don't you hate that when it happens?

I was watching old rock videos on youtube, and when I checked something on my own youtube channel, I saw that half of my favourites were blacked out with notices saying they had been removed by the person who posted them. 
Here's the sad thing, some of them were so old that I don't remember what it was I had favoured, therefore no idea what people removed?

But isn't that the case, you sign up for stuff, you "like" stuff, join stuff,  but because there is so much going on on the internet and since most people have been online for years... well you forget about stuff.
Like what those videos on youtube that I liked and added to my favourites that I just don't remember what they were.

Day 301

It's a rainy Monday morning.  The kind I like.

Last night I decided sort of last minute to order the WWE wrestling pay-per-view.   It was interesting. Not because of the show itself, but because my mom was sitting here watching it as well.
Seems, she is not much of a Damien Sandow fan.  As every time he would get close to a win in the ladder match, she would scream at the tv for someone to knock him down.
This from a woman who claims she hates wrestling.  I think she's a wrestling fan don't you?

Day 300

300!  Dude, and it only took me a year and a half to get here.
Seriously, this has not gone just the way I was hoping, but only 65 days left of blogging, then a "full year"  will have been reached.

And what will I do with this blog then?

That right now is a toss up between starting fresh with a new 365 day blogging theme and just turning this into something else.

I'm actually at the time of this  posting, which remember card subject to change- am currently thinking I might make this a diary of my getting back into shape.

You might notice that I don't put up many photos of myself.  That's because in the last few years I've become a small hippo. I really don't like seeing myself too much anymore.

I was just looking at a photo from 2006, at how thin I was right before my car accident.  Back when I was still able to get to the gym and work out 5 times a week.
Then, car accident and I was unable to do much of anything other then sit around the house.

So, I have to figure out a way to be able to safely because of my injuries, to start working out again.

Day 299

As I was just saying over on my main blog,  both Mercury and Uranus are going into retrograde motion this week.  So be ready for all sorts of mix ups and chaos and change.

We hit some major heat today again.  +36c with a +40c humidex.  Needless to say, it's not helping my headaches any.
No physio therapy today so I'm going bit stir crazy sitting here stuck inside in the heat.

Speaking of stepping in it... ever have one of those days where every time you open your mouth you've stuck your foot in it?   Yeah I'm having one of those days.

The movie de jour is up.  Day 211.  I had some issues yesterday so I missed yesterday.

Tuesday, July 10, 2012


Some days, I wonder if it's all worth it?
I've been having issues all day with my comments on all my blogs.   some of the blogs I've had for years, suddenly have no comment boxes.  Seems there is some switch or something that's been added and now you have to add the comments every time you write the post.  
In other words,  I have a few blogs now where I need to go post by post through the archives and add the comment boxes back in. 

Totally sucks.

The heat here has been horrible too.  +29c with a +32c humidex.  Dude, I'm not good with heat at all.

Day 297

Seems, I'm on Google +   BUT I never signed up for that feature.

Little strange don't you think?

Rain.  We've got overcast and the starting of rain.  Lovely. 

This is 19 weeks since I broke my kneecap.  and Day 209 on the movie challenge blog.  Slow weekend. Which, I suppose when you consider the fact this is suppose to have been a drama free blog, slow would be a good thing as that means nothing to rant about...

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.

Day 296

Have I mentioned that I am down to only one day a week at physio therapy? 
Have gotten to a 115degree bend, which is fabulous.  Still waiting to get the wires removed, have not heard from the surgeon.  Starting to wonder if they forgot about me?

The heat wave here this week has been killer.  +33c with a humidex of +41c yesterday.  Today, some relief with rain.

This is indeed another random post, life has been at a standstill.

Day 295

I'm gonna keep with the wrestling theme in this post like yesterday...  I posted over on my very unused wrestling blog earlier today with my "ideal roster" 

We've had a temp of +27c  today with a humidex of  +31c  which means, we're baking just by sitting still.  The air conditioner has been running full speed since 8am.

Not too much to chat about today, looking forward to some rain

Day 294

Going to go little off topic on here for a few minutes.
I'm watching WWE wrestling at the moment, taped it earlier while I was watching Hell's Kitchen and Master Chef.   And saw a promo for a former ROH wrestler. 
I suppose I'm a bit on the underside of this thought but, I just don't like the fact that guys who worked their arse off for years in other companies have to spend time unlearning certain things to fit into the WWE.

Maybe it's just me, and I know that I am just a fan... but dude.

Day 293

So it's Canada Day, and I'm sitting here by myself, as mother was invited to my aunt and uncle's for the day.  Here's the thing, everytime I start talking about getting home, my mother starts to panic.  She doesn't think I can handle getting back to a normal life.  Even today, it took both my aunt and uncle calling to get her to go out. 
I'm currently cripple I'm not a child.  Though sometimes I get treated like one.

If you're following the movie challenge blog, then today you will find a Canadian theme with the movie de jour and an extra post.

Been doing some drawings.  Which, if I can get to a proper camera anytime soon, or at lest a webcam that doesn't make everything blurry, I'll get some photos of my doodles up at some point. 

Till later.

Pasta salad for supper

Happy Canada Day
