Mele Kalikimaka!

I'm not sure if that's how you spell it, but it's Hawaii's way to say merry Christmas to you. :o)

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Today is my last day at work (woo!) and there's not much going on other than preparing food, eating cookies and drinking leftover wine from our open house. *hic*

May you get all the gifts you long for and have a safe, happy Christmakwanzakkuh!

Also, since I'll be gone until January 2nd, I'd like to wish everyone a happy New Year and I hope that 2007 is even better for you than 2006!

I'd like to thank everyone who was there for me this past year. The first half of the year didn't go so great, it being a year of extreme changes and challenges for me. However, I am so happy to be where I am now that I would not change any of it. Thanks so much for your support and love, and I hope that I have done even half for you what you have done for me over the past year. That goes for everyone!

On that note, may your days be merry and bright and all that jazz.

Ha! Ha Ha Ha Ha!

This is awesome. See, I NEVER watch SNL because it's mostly useless crap, but every now and then they have a rare gem like this that makes it all worthwhile. I nearly peed laughing. I swear, I can picture some of the guys I have met in my lifetime doing this exact thing to some poor girl. Justin Timberlake is surprisingly good at this gig, too. Hmm...earning respect for pop idol? There's something new.

Shameless Plug for a Friend...

This is a nifty video of my buddy Mr. Mahe's parcour antics with his partner, Nick. Together they're Flow Dynamic, and are prepping this video to garner attention for the underground sport and to get sponsorship. They've already got Lululemon under their belts, and Mahe's hoping to score a little more cash in Vancouver in a few months.

For those of you unfamiliar with Parcour, here's a little wikipedia info:


This stuff is fantastic!

By the Power of Greyskull, I have the Power!!!

Do you ever like to reminisce about your childhood? Do you ever like to recklessly throw yourself back into a sweet sweet bout of nostalgia and indulge your inner child? I know I do.

It's difficult oftentimes when we grow up to face the characters we grew up with. Oftentimes we find that our imaginations made them to be much better than the shoddy animation and stilted dialogue did. Hence, it's always with a bit of caution that I revisit my childhood.

The saddest of all things is, perhaps, realizing that you don't even remember a cartoon show or muppet character whose dialogue you could, once upon a time, recite by rote.

Thankfully, last night was not one of those nights.

I had Bettsy over for Xmas cookies and tree trimming, as me mum purchased a lovely wee Tanenbaum for my apartment. As entertainment during these few hours, Bettsy brought along her newly purchased DVD: She-Ra, Princess of Power (!!!)

Now, She-Ra and He-Man were two of the (albeit fictional) characters that shaped my childhood, and it is scary to think that in one iconoclastic evening, my former dreams could be shattered by the horrendous cheese of it all. To my surprise and delight, however, I was rather impressed by the show. Granted, some of the characters are impossibly lame and the "messages" by that annoying rainbow dude at the end are trite, but overall the quality of the work had not grossly deteriorated over the past 20 years (god, it's been 20 years!!!) The same cannot be said for other favorites of mine, such as Hercules or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles original series. Oh, Donatello, where did your wit go?

Anywho. Just thought I'd take a perambulation through memory lane. I hope everyone is excited for Xmas, which is fast approaching, and that everyone has booked off the 16th of December to come over and party at my place! Woo!

For the Honour of Love, we Have the Power So Can You......
