Tis the season to be jolly and i guess steal???

So it is Christmas time and all should be joy and happiness, right? Well no because some greasy individual felt the need to steal my friends dads truck. What kind of person does that at Christmas? I mean really? I will tell you who some lazy slacker drain on society that is who.

I hated and still HATE YSA WARDS

Today i had the pleasure of going to a YSA ward to support my sister inlaw while they did musical numbers as part of a Christmas program. It would have been the most lovely experience minus the 2 rows in front of us that laughed, played with phones, passed notes and generally annoyed me. First of all let me start by saying they were clearly the plastics of this ward and boy did i want to punch them. If you can't go to church and listen to beautiful music get out. Also let me say this it is a shame guys go for these girls, these useless sacks of make up and hairspray rather than the great sisters who still wait because they are not the perfect 10. I think it is a shame that girls like this are allowed to breath the same air as people with intelligence let alone attend meetings with them. I am beside myself with annoyance over these pathetic clearly soulless biotches.

Parenting 101/ How to shelter your child.

I have no issue with people wanting to protect their children from things they think are dangerous but there is a line that when crossed goes from protecting to sheltering. Keep your kids away from pornographic content? Yes of course, but day time television is not porn. Violent movies for little kids? Yes of course, but Avatar the last airbender is not a violent movie it is a great story about young kids trying to save the world from evil. Keep your kids away from music that is full of adult content in its lyrics? Yes of course, but a strong baseline or a hard rock edge does not make for evil music. The world is not a scary place unless you create that image for your children. Scary places do exist but watching the latest Transporter movie, listening to a little AC/DC and perhaps reading some comic books will not lead you to hell but not being prepared for the scary stuff then entering the real world outside small town AB will. Prepare your kids instead of sheltering them and you will have children prepared for the challenges that are out there.

Mountains, wind, and cookies

Ok so today was ok minus the 100 km winds reported to be on the way it was an alright day. Wife is not feeling well and still helped me make a ton of things for the bake sale I am doing with my kids. I feel bad I don't try harder to be happy here. Seeing the mountains today was great the forever and ever flowing white finally broke to unleash the beauty that is the mountains but alas beauty can not last forever and we get this miserable wind which might be putting me in the house tomorrow becaue if there is zero visibility it will be a snowmday so no bake sale ugh. That would be a kick in the shorts.

People Suck

Today i had the lovely experience of finding out someone at work was talking about me behind my back. I for one do not think there is anything wrong with talking crap about people and behind their back makes it all the more fun. The difference that i find is that if it could affect their job you are crossing a line. Call a person fat, comment on their terrible cloths or the fact that they think they are paranormal investigators, but going to someone boss and talking about the person in a negative light or trying to create controversy where none exists is so lame. I am sure it happens everywhere but another great experience in the south. Oh and i must quickly comment on the fact that today i discovered why i am so negative right now. The unending white expanse that is the snow covered south. UGH!

Something that continues to amaze me

I am continually  amazed at the love affair people have with the south. I grew up in in the North and do not continually rave about how amazing it is because lets face it, trashy chicks, brutal bars, "tough" guys, cold winters, short summers that is Small town Northern Alberta. Here is the kicker people from the north can admit to the short falls of their society. Let me translate the phrases of the south to the realistic view i am getting. Quiet=Boring, Hot Summers=Sun but more wind than you ever want, Nice Winter=Grande Prairie has nicer weather than Cardston in November tomorrow it will be -38, Great family values=Along as you have "our family values". Time to take off the rose colored glasses. I do love my job though so i can end with a positive at least. Until next time.


Liberal out of water is going to be my chance to get my thoughts about living in a land that does not feel like home and probably never will. Like a fish out of water i am definitely not yet comfortable in this land of wide open fields and completely closed minds but i am working at trying to be happy. THis will be my outlet.
