Happy Thanksgiving

CD in Play: Neko Case, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood.

Well Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Americans celebrate it in November, but north of the 49th Parallel we celebrate in October - I have no idea why. I will be sitting down to roast lamb and assorted veggies, etc in a couple of hours.

Current Book: Knots and Crosses by Ian Rankin. The second book by Rankin I have undertook, his first Rebus novel.

Current thing I am looking forward to: Retesting for my driver's license. As stated earlier in ths blog, I was in a dispute with ICBC. After a while it went in my favour, however, I have to retest for my license as does anyone who has been without one for over six months. I won't have a vehicle, but a DL opens up employment opportunities and I can borrow my Father's vehicle from time to time. Motorcycles are cheap transportation so I will probably look at getting my Class 6 next year sometime.

Current "Thing": Sudoku. Much easier than I thought it was and I am improving.

I have cable for the first time in a while and it is actually good to see some shows. Lots of crap though - lots of crap. I am also looking forward to sitting down and watching the Battlestar Galactica Season 3 opener, which should just have finished taping. Season Premiere of Doctor Who is tomorrow night and I have found myself getting into Supernatural as well. I had written the show off as a violent Hardy Boys for the Joss Whedon generation, but I have been surprised at what I have seen.

Hey, you're getting into Sudoku too? Cool! I've become quite an addict, myself, in the past few months.

FYI, in the 1930s Canada's Parliament moved Thanksgiving to October because it was too close to Rememberance Day, I think there was even one year in the 1920s where it was on the same day (yikes!)

Hmmm... well I salute Parailment for giving us a long week end in October - Stat pay five or six months in a row is a good thing.
