What a Week and I Can’t Wait For Something. Plus TV Shows Chat – S2E10

This hasn’t been a great week for me because the house has no heat, furnace is broken and we need a new one. I haven’t had a good sleep for the past few days.
No classes with Peter Hodgins until next Thursday. Except Tuesday where it will be a TA teaching.
Lucky or not, I still had to go to Carleton on Thursday to talk to meet up with my Canadian Humour group. I really wanted to stay home, but had to for the sake of the group.
Oh doh, if I write Peter Hodgins on my entries, my blog will be linked on Google if you type “Peter Hodgins”.

I don’t know what I have been concentrating on. The midterm for Canadian Provincial Politics for Monday, the group presentation for CDNS4200 – Canadian Popular Culture or trying to plan out the essays as soon as possible.
I am a bit nervous on the presentation next week. Whoever I tagged on Facebook, you know who I am talking. 😀
Though, I got a “secret weapon” to showing it. Though, it’s not Powerpoint. I don’t know if you guys will like the effects.

What I am waiting for is the Macbook Pro with Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Though, I am not sure when it will be delivered. Oh, the one I picked is 2.16GHz, 1GB RAM, 120GB hard drive, 15 inch screen, and iWork ’06 preinstalled. No glossy screen. I hope to get Aperture in the future and fiddle around with digital photos.
Too bad I won’t be able to use it for the presentation next week. The iBook G4 will do for now.
It will be nice to use it on November 24 when I have a presentation for CDNS4400.

As for comics this week(to whoever got tagged on Facebook, you know who I am talking to :D), my picks are Seven Soldiers #1, Jack of Fables #4, New Avengers #24 and Planetary #26.
A new graphic novel released this week that I picked up is American Virgin Vol. 1: Head. I already have the first four issues in comic form, but the “extras” got me hooked, so I had to pick it up.

TV Chat: I had a chance to watch Torchwood via BT and I putted it on my iPod. All in all, the Doctor Who spin-off is excellent. It is edgy and more for grown-ups. I like the linking to the events that happened in Doctor Who. I don’t know what time CBC will air Torchwood at. It is nice to see CBC getting credit on BBC television.
Another show that I also found on BT is Season 4 of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. I haven’t had a chance to find Vol. 2 on DVD and I haven’t watched any of Season 3 because I don’t know if Teletoon aired further eps of it. I am a bit lost on the series because I haven’t watched further than Season 1.
