I’m a slacker

Yes I’m a slacker… I really need to get back into the spirit of this blog thing. I went from posting once a week and then to twice a month and then to once a month. This is really not the way to do a blog as anyone who does a blog will tell you. Mind you with the 6 people that actually read my blog I’m sure thats not a problem.

So anyway here is this months update……

At the start of the month of August I went with my girlfriend and her brother to Buffalo NY for a little shopping trip. With the US dollar where it was that weekend and the prices where they were in the US it was a great shopping experience. We saved a boat load of money and had a good time doing it. We had a bit of a scare crossing the border back into Canada with the dollar amount that we were bringing back. But we crossed OK.

The best part of the weekend was that I got to play with the iPhone at the Apple store at the Walden Galleria Mall. I was in love right away. It is the coolest thing ever invented!!! Well ok I’m sure there are better things but if you are a Canadian and haven’t played with it yet it’s almost worth the drive across the border.

Then on the 11th of August I went to the ACC in Toronto to watch the Walking With Dinosaurs The Live Experience show. I must say that it is one of the best shows that I have sen in a long time. The dinosaurs are very realistic and the show is very well produced. If it comes back to Toronto or comes to your town please go see it. The pictures can be seen here.

Oh and I am very tempted to buy a new Macintosh computer. The new update this month to the new brushed metal and the Core2 chips in the minis has made me very interested in getting a new mini. But I think I’m going to wait until Leopard comes out in October to get one with the new OS. But I did buy a new keyboard and mouse for the desktop. I got the Logitech Cordless Desktop S530 for the Mac. Its a nice keyboard with a nice feel and the mouse is a laser and feels great in the hand. The only issue I’m having so far is that the key layout is slightly different then what I’m used to. So I am hitting the key when I want to hit the key just because of the placement. But I’m sure I will get used to it.

Over the next two weeks I plan to be busy with work and play before September. I want to have a barbecue with my friends at my place like a end of summer bash. We really haven’t done much this summer and we need to get together, have some food and beers and have a good old time.

Check my work schedule on my homepage as well as check out the Gallery for Dinosaur pictures and more. I plan to have the gallery ready in a package to ‘give away’ soon. But I have a lot of work to do before that. Check for that soon. Anyway I got to go.. work is calling.. 6pm – 2am… it sucks but it pays the bills.

  1. […] I bought it on Monday from the Rogers Wireless store on the corner of Bay and Adelaide in Toronto. I got one of the last 8GB models. The signup and porting of my number was easy. It still took about 30 minutes but I was the only one in the store that morning so it was OK. I was so happy when he took it out of the box because I have waited a year and a half to get my hands on my own phone. Even though I did play with one in the Buffalo Apple store and had to be dragged away by Sarah. […]
