"This is the end... my only friend the end..."

It's been quite some time since my last update, the longest gap yet. Quite frankly, it's gotten to the point that my spare time has been spent elsehwere, and updates from work have become a total impossibility, which puts the future of Blowin' Smoke into some manner of serious doubt. No, i'm not pulling the plug and abandoning things entirely. Blowin' Smoke will remain where it is for those distinct few who are gracious enough to still care. But updtaes will probably be sporiadic at best until the blogging bug really sinks his teeth in again, which he may yet again sometime in the future.

Some current events: Abby starts Pre-Kindergarten today, and of course we're caught in a goddamn blizzard. It blows my mind that she's crawling towards school already. The last 4 years and change have been a whirlwind, gone in the blink of an eye. She's become a fiercely intelligent, and dare i say independant, little girl, she's not a baby anymore. When i hear her carry on a conversation, or read aloud one of her zillions of books, or have her eloquently tell me about her day, or even pass the buck on something, i can't help but be a proud father. Yep, she's even learned to cover her tracks and shift blame where nessecary - all important life skills right? ;) I look forward to doing it all again with Sammy, she's coming along very well herself - crawling like nobody's business, and calling me "DAD! DAD! DAD!" whenever she gets the chance - not bad for 8 months. Something tells me she's going to develop even faster than Abby did, and we're gonna be in for trouble.

My car is dead. Clutch and Flywheel damaged. Un-freakin-believeable. The car is barely a year old, only 11 thousand Kilometeres (less than 10 thousand miles!). Both myself and Sarah have a decade of experience with a standard transmission - i've never heard of anything like this before. And of course, GM is telling me my 5-year powertrain warranty won't cover it - so i'm looking at about 1500 in repairs. Money i just don't have.

Sarah has a new job with one of the local call-centres. Which is good news, as they pay excellent money. She starts on the 18th of February - which means my already hectic life is about to get that much more hectic. But it's all good.

Top tens for 2007 just didn't happen, for that i apologize, i'm sure 2 or 3 people were looking forward to it. Keep your eyes peeled - something may pop up before the end of February. Maybe not... no gaurantees.

That's it for now. I'll be around - look me up on MSN or drop an e-mail if you feel like getting in touch (, or you can always find me over at the DVDVerdict forums (Steve T Power). I'm also on Facebook alongside a zillion other Steve Powers.

That's it, grab yer coats. I'm shutting the doors for now, one last rundown for the road:

The rundown:
Watching: Eastern Promises / Sunshine / The Mummy (1999) / Beowulf
Listening to: Magnus Rising - Counting the Numbers / Sheavy - The Machine that won the War / The Fountain OST / Seven Samurai OST
Reading: No Man's Land by Kevin Major / The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian by Robert E Howard
Playing: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (PS3) / Eye of Judgement (PS3) / Mass Effect (xbox360) / Heavenly Sword (PS3)
Eating: Bacon N Eggs
Wishing: My car wasn't gonna cost me 1500 bucks!

"How was i to know she was from Snake Mountain!!?? She was beautiful!!"


For old times sake:
Where there's smoke... There's a funeral pyre, sending the spirit of Blowin' Smoke to valhalla.

There is now a new quit smoking drug available in the market. This latest breakthrough is known as Chantix. It is able to help smokers snub out their addiction by working on the brain.
