Not As We....

Reborn and shivering
Spat out on new terrain
Unsure, unconvincing
This faint and shaky hour

Day one, day one
Start all over again
Step one, step one
I'm barely making sense
For now I'm faking it
'Til I'm pseudo-making it
From scratch, begin again
But this time I as I
And not as we

Gun-shy and quivering
Timid without a hand
Feign brave with steel intent
Little and hardly here

Day one, day one
Start all over again
Step one, step one
With not much making sense
Just yet I'm faking it
'Til I'm pseudo-making it
From scratch, begin again
But this time I as I
And not as we

Eyes wet toward wide open fright,

If God is taking bets, I pray he wants to lose

Not As We~ Alanis Morisette from the album "Flavors of Entanglement"

It might be the current mood I'm in but I'm really identifying with this song at the moment. Actually I think this whole album is one of Alanis best pieces of work in years.

The day I've been dreading has arrived......

Well as they say all good things must come to an end, such was the case today when we took my niece and sister back to the airport :( .

Where did the summer go?, seems like only yesterday we were picking them up at the airport.

My niece was clearly happy to be going home, understandably so since all her friends are in Poland. She was definitely not looking forward to school though, and I can't say I blame her.

My sister on the other hand really didn't want to go, whether it was the long journey itself or wanting to stay I'm not sure, maybe a bit of both.

Once again the ride to the airport was very quiet, I did most of the chatting to break everyone out of their thoughts.

When we got to baggage check-in we all knew goodbye was inevitable, so as we got to the gate we all hugged each other one last time.

I always find that last moment to be the hardest, it's so difficult to walk away when your heart is so heavy with the knowledge that it'll probably be a while before you see each other again.

This whole day has been very hectic and full of nervous energy with both of them packing, making sure they have everything in all the rush they always seem to forget something anyway. This time was no exception *lol*.

Thankfully it wasn't anything vital. The hustle and bustle of this afternoon was such a contrast to the quiet that awaited us when we got home.

I suspect it'll be a good couple of weeks before I get used to all the quiet and to being alone all day again. It is definitely gonna be weird.

At the time I write this they've barely been gone 2 hours, but I already miss them.

As we were leaving the parking lot en route to the airport, the parental units started to bicker as usual, I jokingly turned to my sister and told her "great now I'm going to be blamed for everything again".

And we had a good laugh, but I think we were both aware that I was only half kidding. I loved having the parental units attention diverted from me.

Now that they're gone it'll be same old same old with me at the centre again.

Oh well, c'est la vie I guess. Hopefully it won't be too long before we're all reunited again, maybe even as soon as next year *fingers crossed*.

Pink's still got it



Yep, nobody makes break-up songs or break-up videos more fun and catchy than Pink. With her trade mark cheeky sense of humor she sticks it to her ex, while at the same time showing the middle finger to the press by having him in the video. You go girl!!. :D.

This song is off of her new album entitled "Funhouse" coming out at the end of October, I'm putting this one on my must have list!.

ETA: Here's a high quality video from Yahoo.

Cockatiel confusion

Ok, so I've had a lutino cockatiel for over a year now. I have always been sure that it was a male because he displayed all the behaviours typical to males.

Things like hanging from the cage upside-down and showing off the wings, being extremely social and friendly with all the women in the house, right down to the pronounced orange cheeks.

All those things have lead everyone in my family to believe he is a he, even the pet store owner assured me of that. Which is why he was given the male name of Cuba.

But today, he layed an egg, so once again we were completely mislead, the same thing happened when I got my first cockatiel about 9 years back.

So far it is only the one egg though so I'm not completely convinced is there such a thing as a male who lays eggs and displays bi-sexual tendencies or behaviours?.

Any help with clarification would be much appriciated, please feel free to send comments to allyfan29@yahoo.ca. Hopefully none of you think I'm completely crazy *lol*.

Are you ready to lose?
Are you ready to win?
Well I've been losing for so long
I can't begin

I'm a man on the moon
I'm a man on the edge
Well I'm the words you never knew were in your head
To be read

You can't help you're so insecure
Your hurt right down to the core
You're only stuck in your pain today
Welcome to Breaktown

For the first time
It's a great town
For your worst time
When you freak out
There's a road sign
Welcome to Breaktown

Are you ready to quit?
Are you ready to learn?
Are you ready to find the spark inside and let it burn?
I'm the walls that close in
I'm the words you won't say
I'm the voice you choose to keep inside
And lock away
Everyday

You keep it all to yourself
You're just like everyone else
So take a good look around
now....Welcome to Breaktown

For the first time
It's a great town
For your worst time
When you freak out
There's a road sign
Welcome to Breaktown

When you're driving through
There's a room with a view
Just hang around

Welcome to Breaktown

For the first time
It's a great town
For your worst time
When you freak out
There's a road sign
Welcome to Breaktown

BTVS: The Animated Series that never was



I remember reading about the development of this series back when Buffy was still on the air (in it's last couple of seasons).

Too bad it didn't get picked up, 'cause it looks like it would have been filled with plenty of trade-mark Buffy humor.

Oh Scooby gang how I miss thee *sigh*.

Good thing Eliza Dushku is coming back in Dollhouse next year I need my weekly Jossverse fix.

Yet another T:TSCC season 2 promo

Is it me or is FOX promoting the hell out of this show?, not that I'm complaining ;).



Cameron is looking a little worse for wear, but not as much as I thought she would after such a big explosion. Her skin regeneration ability must be really fast!.

The women of T:TSCC

Song of the moment: Pink-What's Up



I think I've mentioned once before that I'm generally not a big fan of covers, unless they're done really really well.

And although it is rare some covers are actually better then the originals. Such is the case with this Linda Perry tune, which you might say was a childhood staple of mine.

I have heard many different renditions of this song, but none have sounded as good as Pink's and it is by far my absolute favorite.
