On your mark. . . Get set. . . Rant.

Actually, I don't feel like ranting. I just watched a couple hours of MTV Canada and I am just too depressed. Reality shows? Not real, just creepy. They've got a show where people compete. . . to become some reality star's friend. At least with Survivor, there's the chance to win some cash.

Enough of that. I really should stop watching stuff that is guaranteed to irk me.

Tomorrow, I'm taking the train down to Sarnia. My friend Adam is having a grand opening for his studio and it should be an amazing show. Jim Chevalier, The Chocolate Robots, the aforementioned Adam (Miner, that is) and a few other acts. I've been looking forward to it for a long long time.

Speaking of Chocolate Robots, here's a video:

Haven't blogged much this week because I had my father staying over for a few days and just did not wind up with much time for the internet. It was a great visit. After 35 years with CN, he retired yesterday. While it's a great thing, I think we all just feel a little strange right now, my father included (if not most of all). The railway was a big part in not just his life, but in our whole family's life. It was a career that took him (and us) all over Ontario in a number of moves. Now, he's up at the homestead with my mother, relaxing and looking forward to a much quieter life.
