we made a decision at our house not to get cable tv. i thought the hardest part would be the inability to watch the sports highlights 7 times over each night before going to bed. espn.com has scratched that itch. i may never want cable again. if i miss one thing it is sunday evening. 60 minutes is my favorite. if you have never watched you are missing out. later on sunday evening cbc newsworld has a show called doc zone where they show documentaries. nima like. here is a list of my favorite documentaries. you get a chance to watch anyo of them you take it. trekkies, supersize me, harry potter and the half blood prince.

the edot

i have a confession. i miss edmonton. when i left 6.5 months ago i was more than ready for a change. i forgot what i loved about the place. i moved to calgary and was hypnotized by the view of the mountains. the short ride to waterton sucked me in every other weekend. unlike capitol ex/klondike days, the stampede was actually fun. i loved being able to go downtown at night and not be scared. the more i get to know calgary i realize i really love edmonton. the 2 cities couldn't be more different. calgary is a brand new car. it is is shiny and new. look at how beautiful i am! where as edmonton is like the gibb's old blue topaz gord and bro. gibb spray painted. or like the onmi dave olsen drove before our missions. all the door handles broke off so dave would have to go in through the trunk to let us in. i guess i am saying edmonton is not that polished and neither am i.
