Can't blog today... nerves will eat me...

I know, it's not Monday... and I'll have a LOT more to say about things then... without spoilers, of course... but today is the SEASON FINALE of that show I promised NOT to mention except on Mondays... and the "cliffhanger" from last week pretty much turned the whole household into a puddle... it's a day of watching the clock... waiting... then bugging my friend at The Beeb to SENDETH US THE GOODES!

Dear God in Heaven, WE NEED OUR FIX, MAN!

Gosh-darnit, if I was like this through the whole season, we'd need special counseling and detox!

...I can see it now... a dimly lit church basement... a semi-circle of people sitting on folding chairs... the "leader" of the group stands up...


Leader: Group, we have some new people joining us tonight... Matther, Sue, The Kidollo, Assorted other steplings... Matthew, how about you introduce yourself to everyone?

Matthew: Um... yeah... um... Hello. My name is Matthew.

Group says as a whole: Hello Matthew!

Matthew: Uh, okay... well, like I said, I'm Matthew, and I have a problem. It all started in 2005 with this fellow named Eccleston and has gotten progressively worse since then...


Just twelve little steps...

Anyway, ANY super-fan of a television program knows my pain... and at least, I will get my "fix" today... and HOPEFULLY, the "cliffhangers" will be resolved.

...either that, or you'll find me clinging madly to The Lost Moon of Poosh ranting about flying into the wild and fire where I danced and died a thousand times all the while plotting to kill Russell T. Davies because, yes, I will have snapped.

So forgive my lack of posting today... I'll be back tomorrow with a blessing... that may or may not include a reference to Raxicoricofallipatorius.

Oh, and the bees? The clever folks in the entertainment industry have figured it out for us... apparently, after telling the plants to do us all in (thanks M. Night Shyamalan... I want my 90 minutes back! What a dreadfully boring film!) they went home to Malissamajouria following The Tandoka Trail.

Yeah, that probably makes a big pantload of sense to most of my readers.

Anyway, here's a link to The Telegraph which, like ALL the papers and media in Britain, is going crazy over the program... but be warned, North American audiences... there is "spoilery goodness" in that there link!

OH, and GOOD NEWS American Audiences! No doubt because of complaints AND because of the unbelievable hype in Britain, Sci-Fi will NOT be trimming twenty-minutes from the finale when it airs in The United States!



This message will be at the bottom of all my posts for the next few weeks... perhaps longer...


A MESSAGE FOR CANADIANS: The Federal Government has tabled a bill that would turn most of us into criminals.

For example, a kid who "rips" an MP3 from his parents CD collection, re-mixes the tune, and uploads it to YouTube could face a total of $40,500.00 or up to ten years in prison... and that's just ONE example of many.

Unlocking your cell phone for use in another country or with another service, copying video tapes to DVD or computer videos, moving music from your CDs to your iPod... all will be illegal and a minimum $500.00 fine per phone/song/single video clip... maximum fine of $20,000.00 or five-years per offence in prison per phone/song/single video clip.

Don't make listening to CD tracks on an iPod or copying your professionally made wedding video tape to DVD akin to drug dealing and pimping.

If like me, you think this is wrong... be you Conservative, Liberal, New Democrat, Bloc, or other, PLEASE write to your MP and let them know... PLEASE stop bill C-61.

Click here for a neat and quick online letter you can send to your MP showing your wish to stop this bill from going forward.

The Current Time in Toronto is...

One Old Green Bus

Allow me to start with we do not own nor are we selling a bus. Just had to get that out...

This blog was started in April of 2006... during a very bad time for me and my family when money was very tight and life was very hard.

We maintained by fantasizing... talking about what we would do when times were better... and as Sue and myself are Anglophiles, England factored greatly into our "plans".

During these bad times, while looking at news items and whatnot as London was removing their venerable old Routemasters, I came across one photo of an old green bus... and somehow, my whole family adopted it. It became very much "our bus". (Details about "our bus" are available by clicking here.)

Like most of you, I'd heard about the fellow who'd made a million dollars selling tiny ads online... and the fellow who did trades and turned a paper clip into a house... so I thought, since we couldn't make our bus actually into "our bus" (well beyond our means,) I'd try and appeal... to make the focused item of our hopes into a tangible thing in our lives...

More specifically, in a burst of adult/juvenile optimism, I had hoped to show the youngest member of the family, who at the time was still very young and impressionable, that dreams really could become reality if you hope and, more importantly, try.

Well, I'm pretty sure you figured it out... we failed... and the youngest has reached an age where she is more cynical than much else about the world which isn't a dreadful thing... but there's a "good news" portion to this... money is better, life has improved, and some people really liked my rambling here... so, I decided to keep things going... Yes, I will "give up" on asking for help on a bus... and have to give up on even trying to get the bus and be far more realistic... but I don't mind (I actually enjoy,) venting, trying my hand at humour, and generally keeping on online presence outside my usual things.

Thanks to those who were/are "Busly Dream" enthusiasts... I suppose that our buses now will be single-deck with the letters "TTC" emblazoned on them... but this blog will live!
