The Black Rabbits


Donna is AWESOME.  By far my most favourite companion in the modern series thus far ( I mean she's the only companion thus far who doesn't want to shag the Doctor and I find that refreshing).  Not that Martha and Rose aren't awesome, because they are, but I just find Donna to be so... fascinating. 

Also, two episodes left!  I love this guy's breakdown of it.  Interesting stuff.


I'm hoping that the whole reason for Donna's existence is to not only break the barriers between universes and bring Rose back... because they said that someone dies in the end of this series, and it better not be Donna from doing just that!  Although it would be a rather dramatic death...  Some people also speculate that she's actually also a Time Lord or something like that... that would be interesting. 

But yes, Donna has an unusual power over time/space/ and relative dimension that even she is not aware of (enabling her to draw strange things/events from across above). 

So to all the Donna Noble haters out there, FUCK YOU!  HA HA!  The universe fell apart without her as the Doctor's companion.  Well the same thing could be said about Rose... because without her then the Doctor might not have been alive to meet Donna and thus not have been alive to meet Martha, causing the whole universe and life within it to perish in darkness.

Anyways, cheer up!  Two episodes and four mini-movies for 2009!


[Edit: -ed some stuff.  Though still far from perfect... it was a quick rant.  Ha ha.]
The fact that Theressa is living, teaching English, and doing (some?) activism in Burma fills me with pride.  Talk about living vicariously through someone.

I was surprised to find George Stroumboulopoulos in their friends.


So if I live in residence in SFU, both the Canada Student Loans and BC student loans won't cover all the expenses.  Meaning the cost of living in residence will not be covered by the loans.  What's more is that there's a sort of a cap on the amount that I receive.  Therefore if my fees are more than that cap, I have to pay for the rest myself.  I could always get a job and pay for that myself, but I'd have to declare that in my student loan application (something about it being illegal otherwise) which would result in my getting less student loans since I have income coming in to help pay for the fees and expenses. 

In other words... my SFU fees can reach to about 6 grand (if I live in residence) and my student loans (BC and Canada combined) will only be around 4 grand (CAP amount) I'll have to find the money to pay for the $2,000 somewhere else. 

... so... does this mean I'm screwed?

The choices I have right now are...

1.)  Continuing to live with my parents and receive student loans but live so far from civilization (1h46min transit to SFU, or 25 min drive to a sky train and then transit the rest of the way (1h21min) to SFU, or 43 min drive to SFU) - this is since they're moving to LANGLEY.  >.>

2.)  Live with my aunt and uncle in Burnaby and transit to SFU (minutes to Millenium sky train stop).  I'd have to declare that I'm living with relatives, therefore will receive less student loans since I'll be classified as dependent and not independent.  But hopefully by doing so there's a chance that my student loans will help pay for most, enough of, or maybe even all of my fees.

3.)  Hope that there's been some sort of miscommunication between the Student Loans agents and myself and live in residence and pray that all expenses will be paid with enough left over to live on for four months?

THIS SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I do envy people's parents who can pay (or help pay) for their fees...

But just to make sure, any of you out there go to school (university) full time and live in residence and is using student loans to pay for it?  If so, how is it working out for you?  Does it actually pay for the tuition and the residence with enough left over?  In other words, anyone out there able to tell me that my calculations are wrong? 

Why can't I own a Canadian?

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a east coast resident, which was posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?

Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? - Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your devoted fan,

He fulfilled a childhood desire and held a family together through some tough times. He deserved more than living as somebody’s pet. 

His influence eclipses his size.
