Much Drama

One of my favourite tv shows, and the one that undoubtedly makes me cry the most, is McLeod's Daughters. It's imported from Australia, and it's set on a ranch. There's much family drama, good-looking, half-dressed farm hands, strong women, scenery, sheep, and alpacas. What more could you want in a tv show? :)
It's on VISION TV (channel 83, on Friday nights a 7 in Calgary) and I just watched the episode "12 and a half hours behind". Talk about a tear-jerker! Tess finds out she's pregnant, and then gets the news that her husband, Nick, has crashed somewhere in remote Argentina on his way back from a business trip. Meanwhile, her possible half-sister is frantically trying to find DNA from Tess's deceased dad to find out if they're sisters. There's two more episodes left in season 5, but Down Under they're already into season 6. So I know how it ends from reading about it on the 'net, but it's still intense.
This is the link to the official website...
This is the best fan site I've found...
When I describe McLeod's Daughters to people, I sometimes compare it to Gilmore Girls, but really, it's way more gripping. It's got such an awesome cast and great writers. I highly recommend checking it out! In fact, PLEASE check it out...I'd love to have someone in Calgary to watch it with...for some reason Trevor doesn't like watching it that much. I can't imagine why... :)

Star Trekking

Any Stark Trek fans out there? I must confess...I am a Trekkie. I wouldn't ever go out in public in a uniform (except maybe on halloween...) but I really enjoy the stories.

I was so sad when the fan club discontinued the Star Trek Communicator magazine after they cancelled Enterprise. BUT there's news of a new movie...HOORAY!

I've been meaning to head south to Vulcan, Alberta for a while now, but just haven't been able to make it. Then I discovered that they have a conference ( on June 9-11, 2006. Gul Damar and Admiral Forrest are going to be there...road trip anyone? :)

Happy Shopping

So the past few days have been great shopping for me - on Saturday my friend Anne and I went to the Calgary Farmers' Market. ( I got tons of cool stuff - like amazing tomatoes, maple fudge covered walnuts, and free samples. I highly recomend it!
Then tonight, I went shopping for some new work clothes. I got lots of stuff, but the best find was buying a suit jacket and getting the pants free. Yay! My feet hurt, but it was pretty productive. I found a warm sweater too, which was nothing sort of amazing. The style right now seems to be short, 3/4 sleeve, loose knit sweaters that are purely decorative. So when this nice lady at Tabi (a store I wouldn't normally go into, but I figured, what the heck) helped me find a sweater that was warm and that I liked, I just couldn't pass it up. And it was on sale, too! Hooray!
I love shopping! :)

First Post!

So this is first post!
What brought this on, you may ask?
Well, I was driving today, and I thought "I wish I could tell people about that - I wish I had a blog."
Then I thought "Hey, they're free, why not?"
So here I am! Hopefully I'll update on a regular basis, but I guess we'll see!
Thanks for coming by!
