Waste of Time, Sort of...

The episode of Castle last night was a repeat, despite the fact that all the sources I looked at said it would be a new episode of the series. It was, in fact, the second season premiere, and I decided to watch it again because I was in a lot of pain in my arm from the flu shot (see yesterday's blog) and because I wasn't feeling tired.

It was a pretty good episode, when all is said and done, but I could have done without watching the re-run I guess. Still, entertaining to watch, and Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic were both pretty good in this one as well.

Oh, and for the record, folks...the arm that I had the H1N1 shot in is hurting me like the dickens today. And I can't raise that arm above my shoulder at all, and even there it hurts like hell. :(

Ottawa-San Jose Game, and the Heatley Return

Tonight should be an interesting night, if you're an Ottawa Senators fan. And if you decide to stay up that late and watch it.

The Ottawa Senators play the San Jose Sharks tonight in San Jose at the Shark Tank. This is the first, and only game this season (other than the playoffs), in which Ottawa plays the team for whom Dany Heatley now plays.

While the two teams are going to go out there and play their game, the Ottawa fans watching the game will be praying and hoping for a Senators' victory over the Sharks, just to get a little bit of payback in. An added bonus would be if Milan Michalek and Jordan Cheechoo (the two player Ottawa got for Heatley) have a good game and get a few points in this one. Especially Cheechoo, as he really needs to get going this season.

But I'll bet you that San Jose fans have no problems with this trade so far, not the way Heatley's been producing. Sure, Cheechoo and Michalek have their fans and supporters, but Heatley's done what is expected of him in San Jose, and could be well on the way to a record-breaking season scoring-wise.

Definitely an interesting game to watch, even if it's on at 10:30 pm Ottawa time.

A Princess of Mars Trailer

For those who have not seen it yet, here is the trailer for ERB's A Princess of Mars.



I still don't quite know what to think of this. Especially with the casting of Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Traci Lords...

The Southway Inn, A Pictorial

Well, my goddaughter will be spending the rest of today and tonight with me here at the hotel, as I give her parents a bit of time alone together on SteveB's birthday.

In the meantime, I've had several folks on Twitter want to know more about what the hotel that I'm staying in, the Southway Inn, looks like on the inside. So without further ado, I give you a pictorial representation of the hotel with perhaps a surprise or two thrown in. All the photos below were taken by spross.

So, that's the peak behind the doors of the Southway Inn, for those who were curious as to where I'm living right now. Any comments are more than welcome, of course.

And the timing for writing this was perfect. My goddaughter has just arrived. We'll be heading off to a swim in that pool you just saw in the pics. :)
