30hr drive

So as most of you don't know, i worked at a camp oustide edmonton this summer. It finished the 28th of August. During the summer i got this great idea, that I should drop some of my friends off in winnipeg on the way to school at the cport. For those of you who don't know, winnipeg is clearly not on the way, but whatever, roadtrips are awesome. Especially in my car and by awesome i clearly mean dangeresque. In total i spent about 34 hours of straight driving awesomeness and by the end of it i was up for over 40. Now, on to the story. My friend D-rock was driving and we were about 30 mins away from Yorkton which is officially the most useless town in Saskatchewan. I had looked over and seen this fire, So I told Drock, hey we should go check it out, assuming the fire dept would be there since we seen teh flames over the treeline from teh highway. As we pull off the highway into this sleepy little town i notice that it's pretty quiet, i got out and ran around the corner. House on fire. check. Randomn barrels of gas and keresone near burning house and next house. check. fire dept. wait not there. local citizens with water pails? Nope, there weren't even any boyscouts dixi cups. It was 2:30 am, and as we later realized the average age of the town was 67ish i guessi could understand it.... Anyways I ran up to the house next to the inferno and woke them up and got them out. (poi. they immeaditely gave me their car keys to move their car) Anyways we made sure they got out of their house as the flames now had consumed the other house completely, the couple informed us luckily that house had been abandoned for years. We then proceeded to wake up the rest of the block as there were big ashes flying everywhere due to the wind and coincidentally the fire flying everywhere and starting fires on the next street. We called 911 as soon as we got there, adn their stellar response time was approx. 30 mins. Awesome. Why even bother calling. Anyways, so basically we took charge of the scene and had to keep everyone away from the spectacle as there was a natural gas supply to the couples trailer. About twenty minutes after we got there and woke up the older couple there house was absolutely engulfed with flames. It eventually burned completely to the ground, both the empty house and the older couples. The man, Mike, who owned the trailer also lost a camper, and a new chevy he bought himself for retirement. He also lost his house two years ago to fire, so he was in pretty severe shock. Eventually the FD showed up and watered the neighbourhood down as the two buildings finished burning to the gournd. Oh yeah and the water truck that was en route from somewhere else, ran out of gas and never showed. One must feel really safe in rural sask. Not only is the response time slower than Paris Hilton answering a question with more than six words, but either the help coming isn't smart enough to gas up, can't afford to gas up, or there really wasn't a water truck. So, that was pretty exciting, well about as exciting one might think. Also i have some pics i'll be posting soon hopefully of things burning

No way, Jose?

I cannot believe MTL traded Theo!! At first, i was mostly in shock,because first of all he's been around for 10 yrs, secondly, the way he's played this season, who would want him,and thirdly he's injured, potentially done for the season. As i've been mulling this over, I checked out Abieshers stats, and statisically he has a better record, overall theodore is a bunch of games under .500, 3 games under this season, while abiesher is several games over .500. What was most confusing i thought mtl's back up was doing ok, 3-1-1 after the break, 3 SO's in 8 games. Plus his back up Danis has looked ok in a few starts including a SO in his first NHL game. Also there is a 3.5 million dollar difference in salaries so that is an upside for montreal, maybe montreal is going to swing another deal and send abeisher to another team. As long as we don't get Todberculosis i'll be ok.

Pierre Mcqueer...i mean Macguire......

For those of you who do not know this man, count your self amongst the elect. For those of us who watch sports have almost all be exposed to this moron. Now, i could easily fill pages with the idiotic stuff this guy says. Not to mention he reminds me of a bald pee wee herman, if not in looks at persona. Here are some of his quotes feel free to post more. The hockey news, in it's latest issue says that some may find Pierre too loud....apparently they had run out of space for the other thirty to fourty adjectives the general(intelligent) population would have used as well.

1. It was a double dion, a double dion. this occured during last year world Jr's, phaneuf appeard to hit two players simulateously, Pierre appeared to repeat this phrase 27 and a half times.
2. The Russians are going down quicker than free beer at a frat party. Then again, so do yo pierre so do you.
3. Look at that stretch pass!
4. I like men
5. and the puck squirts out of their zone again.
6. I prefer man to man coverage.
7. I also wear dresses.

TenThings that suck about t.v. programming

10. Curling, yes i realize i have offended the entire province of Manitoba, and I apologize to both of you profusely. But still, curling is often on tsn when there is a perfectly good hockey game on t.v. I'd rather watch paul karyia in Nashville than randy furby and his rocks.

9. Dog shows-if i wanted to see a dog show i'd drive to saskatoon.

8. CBC-worst station ever. Only redeeming value is Hockey Night in Canada. CBC should drop all of it's docu-drama crap quicker than Kobe dropped two million on a "I'm a dirty manwhore, but will you still forgive me" diamond ring for his wife. CBC should play only hockey and the news...when hockey isn't on. During the off season, they should play other sports, and classic games.

7. Martha Stewart. she belongs in prison for being so frickin annoying. her and Oprah.

6. Dr. I'm should follow my own diets Fill. This guy drives me around the bend. The only thing worse than Dr.Phil is his fan club..........and the next five things.

5.Micheal Moore. I know he's not really on Prime time, or vocal any more since bush got re-elected, and he went to fat camp, and america found out he was a jackass. Maybe he got hit by a bus, which would suck for the bus.

4. Remember Canada's late night t.v. show, Mike Bullard man that guy was annoying, he gets number four out of sheer foolishness. I remember him always having terrible jokes he could barely read of the cue sheets because he was to lazy to get glasses. Mike Bullard is to funny what Micheal Jackson is to childcare.

3. chick sports reporters. I was watching football and this sideline reporter woman commented twice about uniforms being stylish. Who really wants to hear about how Nevada states football teams outfit are classy? With all due respect, i have yet to encounter a womans sportscaster who did a good enough job where i didn't notice that she was in fact not man.

2. Spelling Bee's. I don't care how many t's kat has, spelling bee's are not a sport and should never be shown on a sports network. TSN the sports network. Now the subject of that phrase is Network which can be read as t.v. station. sports is the predicate noun, which means it's telling you something about the subject. ie. it's a SPORTS station. During the lockout poker was on all the sports channels, also not a sport but close than teh spelling bee. Also the spelling bee play by blay chick stated "winning the spelling bee is the hardest feat to accomplish in sports." right. I can see the validity in her point. Because an 82 game hockey season is easy, because the NFL and CFl play flag football. Bold statements i think can be hilarious, but not when you say them to validate your career as a spelling bee announcer... i mean seriouisly "Well Jim, not only did he spell that word correctly, have you seen his shoes?"

P.E.T.A.......and why they suck.

For those of you who don't know, P.E.T.A. stands for " People for the ethical treatment of animals. This is the organization that implies that animals have the same basic value and rights as humans. on this site, peta gives you ten "solid" reasons why it's foul to eat fowl.

Their number one reason is that they are "smart animals with personality and character" .....and yet they still taste great with gravy.

Also PETA uses celebrity quotes to promote the ethical treatment of animals.

Avril Lavigne Goes Vegan"I’m on a vegan diet, I do yoga every day, I work out, I’m totally spiritual ..." (Calgary Sun) Even changing her skater boy song to read "he's just a carnivore, so i said see ya later boy".......

Diane Sawyer on the Running of the BullsAfter viewing footage of this year’s Running of the Bulls: “They should just stop this event. They should just stop it.” (Good Morning America) Wow thanks Diane

Ricky Williams: "i wouldn't eat a chicken if it dropped dead in front of me holding a sign saying "eat me". ....Ricky is the man who shunned a 7million dollar a year contract to smoke weed. I'm not so sure he could read the paper let alone a sign held up by a dead chicken.

and no tofu isn't the same, unless the only meat product you ever encountered tasted like 2nd hand vomit.

Bottom line, PETA=LAME and STEAKS=Awesome

So what if they keep calves in a box for most of their lives? Have you had veal? Definitely worth it.

seriously people get off the peta train. We are on the top of the food chain for a reason.

Jesus is NOT your homeboy

Jesus is defined as several things throughout scripture, king of kings, prince of peace, immanuel, his name means annointed one, he's referred to as a messiah son of man, son of God. In the Gospel of John Jesus tells a crowd of Jewish leaders and common folk that "before Abraham was, I am" In John 14:6 Jesus delcares himself to be the way the truth and the life. Jesus walked on water, healed the sick and raised the dead. Nowhere does it suggest that Jesus is in fact your homeboy. Your homeboy is the guy who spots you cash when you need it, or lends you his ride when yours is busted. Jesus, is in fact the guy who died for you sins, and paid a price which we are/were unable to. Is Christ your friend? Yes. Does Jesus care about smaller things, probably. Was Jesus a white dude passing out peace signs? most certainly not. Christ is messiah. He is essentially how we approach the father. Christ is approachable for sure. But, he is God. He is holy. We do not equal holy, not even a little bit.

i'll admit the shirt is funny, but at some point begrudgingly or not you need to draw the line. None of your "homeboys" have or will die for your sins, perhaps they may die because of you.........

p.s. Jesus was Jewish and spoke aramaic, so chances are his homeboys were not from white suburbia, and he would not know what a homeboy was.
