November 25, 2012: Snow Monkey fury! Jelly in: Nose-licking 101!

With two weeks left to go in our fantasy football league season, my Snow Monkeys are fighting for their playoff lives.  Only 8 of 14 teams will advance to the post-season and, with a record of 6-5, my Monkeys face a near must-win match-up this weekend against Rob Cooper's Landsharks.  Looking good however.  We've built…

November 22, 2012: Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating today with friends, family, loved ones, and their respective peculiar dates.  Here in Canada, we already celebrated back in October (approximately two days after Canadian Christmas) but that didn't stop me from enjoying a good old-fashioned American style Thanksgiving complete with football, sweet potato pie, and the traditional post-meal vow…

November 18, 2012: A Disastrous Day! Cheer me up by having me over for Thanksgiving Dinner!

Today was a disaster on so many levels.  At the top of the list was the gut-wrenchingly disappointing loss my Snow Monkeys suffered in fantasy football league play.  It was an especially bitter loss since all the projections had me winning.  As a result, I ended up feeling like a Mitt Romney supporter on election…

November 11, 2012: Best of the rest! Football Sunday/Ice Cream Resumes!

Some of the best of the rest photos of our Tokyo trip - Akemi makes a new friend in Omotesando: Even though I was on holiday, I wasn't on vacation from fantasy football.  With my Snow Monkeys in the playoff hunt, I couldn't afford to be.  And so, amid the sushi and shopping, I also…

October 21, 2012: Football, Roast Rib-Eye, Ice Cream, and Anguish!

Every damn weekend it's the same damn thing!  My Snow Monkey put up enough points to beat at least 10 of the 13 other teams in my league.  Only problem is, we happen to be playing one of the 3 OTHER teams.  Well, they haven't lost yet but it doesn't look good.  Our opponents, the…

October 10, 2012: Looking ahead! Another Stargate poll! What was the best comedic episode in Stargate history? The Snow Monkey report!

To those of you asking - Yes, I fully intend to continue my trip down Stargate Atlantis memory lane by covering the fifth season and, eventually, offering some insight into the never-produced SGA movie, Stargate: Extinction.  I've planned a trip to Japan for early November, so that Akemi can visit with her family, and plan…

September 23, 2012: Football Sunday! Mystery Reads! Days of Stargate Atlantis Past! Trio!

Whew!  After two winless weeks in fantasy football league play, my Snow Monkeys appear poised to claim their first victory.  Ivon's team, The Running Dead, require a near miraculous performance by both his wide receivers to make up a big 49 point deficit.  This win is, of course, huge for the defending champions who are…

September 16, 2012: Seattle Road Trip!

Hey, remember that movie Road Trip where a group of friends hop in a car and drive cross country?  Well, today, I experienced my own abbreviated version - minus the scene in which someone gets served a piece of french toast that took a ride down the back of somebody's pants (although, to be fair,…

September 11, 2012: Fantasy Ennui! Days of Stargate Atlantis Past continues! Missing! Mailbag!

What a difference a week makes.  Well, actually a weekend in which my Snow Monkeys were upset in fantasy football league play.  In the days leading up to the week one kick-off, I was incredibly excited, scouring the internet in preparation for the season to come - researching, analyzing, deciding.  Today, I could barely muster…

September 5, 2012: Philly Cheesesteak secrets! The Most Heartbreaking Moment in Stargate History results and winners! Let’s hear ’em! Days of Stargate Atlantis Past! Lifeline!

Look out!  My Snow Monkeys are back and gunning for their second consecutive Fantasy Football league championship.  The season kicks off tonight but things will really get interesting on Sunday when I'll be hosting an all-day football fest and feast.  And, since I'm hosting, it falls on me to put together a schedule for the…

September 1, 2012: The Snow Monkeys Cometh! The Dogs Eating Ice Cream summer finale!

Finally!  Today was the day our fantasy football league, Vancouver United, gathered for our fantasy football draft.  It looks like my team, the Snow Monkeys, will have its work cut out for it as it faces off against fourteen other tough teams.  Well, thirteen tough teams plus the ragtag assortment of players Tio will manage…

May 5, 2012: Time flies when you’re having fun! But it’s just the opposite when you’re writing a 16 act outline!

They say that time speeds up as you get older.  Conversely, I can now confirm that time actually slows down when you're trying to write up the 16 act outline of a miniseries over the weekend.  I started at 8:30 this morning and finished at a little before 10:00 p.m., breaking only for a shake,…

February 24, 2012: The boys reconvene for blood, battle, and Vietnamese sandwiches! Ivon and Lulu sitting in a tree…! It aint good news for Cookie Monster!

My french bulldog Lulu has a crush on my buddy Ivon Bartok.  It's pretty damn obvious the way she throws herself at him whenever he comes visit, sitting on his lap, sneezing in his face, lying down beside him and lovingly passing gas.  Yesterday morning, I told her that Ivon would be coming to visit,…

January 8, 2012: Another project! Football Sunday!

Tomorrow, I start work on that feature script I really should have written a year ago.  What stopped me?  Well, for one, the fact that the life of a feature writer never held much appeal to me.  Given the choice, I'd rather be working in television, producing my own episodes or running my own shows…
