The Third Wave?

Image
Just when everything was expected to go back to normal. the provincial authorities warned of the third wave and brought the restrictions back! This was 2 weeks ago. Now they're urging everyone, eligible, to register for vaccination. Many refuse to get vaccinated and everyone has a reason for that. I, however, registered because I'm getting out of not only the country but also the continent the first chance I got and I don't want to be sent back in any airport, anywhere in the world. I registered but just a few days later I received this e-mail saying that they had to suspend registration due to the overwhelming number of applicants! Now I will have to go to the pharmacy that I have registered with to see what they say. In the meantime Mom has received her both doses and Farzin has received his first. I hope they're effective.  (Photo: A funny, not stupid(!), only funny statement in a McDonald's restaurant)

Body of Lies, Another Good Movie

Image
There was a load of rumors and bunch of news a few years ago about an Iranian actress who had been banned from acting in the country because she had a role in an American movie. The actress was Golshifteh Farahani and the movie was Body of Lies . I had the chance to see the movie a few days ago and I have to say I was impressed. It's not because an Iranian actress has a role. Her role is actually a minor one and she performs well. The story is interesting and well-written. I, honestly, had difficulty following and had to resort to the plot provided on the web! I didn't Farahani back in the old country perhaps because she was too young. I guess she earned her fame in late 2000's and mostly when she left Iran and settled down in France . I've read that she has also performed in a Satrapi' s movie called Chicken with Plums but I haven't seen it. The story, without going to the detail, is about the safety in Iraq and Europe after the 2003 US led invasion

A Great Movie: Silver Lining Playbook

Image
I and Lazy Ass had a long discussion over the movie that we were going to watch through his streaming system, Netflix . He was going to play another garbage like the one we watched the last time, Centigrade , but eventually we agreed to watch Silver Lining Playbook and I'm glad we did. It's a great movie. I had heard about it but I had not had the chance to watch it until then. It's one of those movie that not only the story is good and takes you along but the acting is perfect and helps you to enjoy the movie much more.  No wonder the lead actress J. Lawrence won an Oscar in 2013 for playing Tiffany . B. Copper 's performance is great as well and so is De Niro 's. It's also quite a new story. That's what makes the movie attractive to watch and follow. I think there was a nomination for the screenplay. I won't spoil it for the ones who haven't watched it but it's a 4 out of 5 movie.

The As*hole got Fired!

Image
The first thing I was told when I went to work the other day and it's usually done by a person who tells the company stories and at times spreads rumors was that the Petite Girl had been fired! I was a bit surprised that how someone could get fired from a job that she had it only for about a month, particularly a Caucasian woman who seemed to be very comfortable with what she was doing. And then I asked someone who I could trust. He confirmed and added that there was an argument and she wanted to do thing the way she was doing them and she got fired! hard to believe but then that's what happened. I waited until I finished work and I went to Lazy Ass , as I was supposed to and over there after a consultation(!) I sent her a message to show that I care and consoled her. The asshole didn't even bother responding! I said to myself: F*ck it. Who needs a stupid whore who gets fired from a job after barely a month?! Silly me who made a good piece of Banana Bread for this asshol

Two Requests are Enough

I asked this tiny, delicious, petite lady at work, out twice since I received positive signs from her but didn't get anywhere. Women change their mind on daily basis! One day they like you and 20 minutes after that they barely look at your face. I decided to drop the case and just say nothing. I only sent her a message on Easter and that was it. I received a response but it was just a response. Nothing to say that she would like to meet or anything. So the entire time after that I didn't even get a chance to say Hi. I only noticed her looking at me twice. Looked like that I still have to step forward and add something! But I won't. I have initiated the action after receiving what I thought at the time to be a good sign and now is her turn. I'm not a type of guy who negs women. Now when I see her again at work when we have a chance to talk, I will only politely say Hi and ask how she is. If she's interested she will tell me that she would like to go out with me on t

Saved by Fools (Save on Foods)!

Image
I have mostly unpleasant memories from the time that I lived in Lower Mainland Brit"SHIT" Columbia : Moving from one shit place to another, low-paid disgusting jobs, unreasonably over-priced items, monopoly of main businesses by the disgusting provincial government, traffic. miserable weather which contains and still contains hot summer and shit rainy seasons, you name it. Add on the top that my wife's separation, at least one of her excuses, was leaving the province because she preferred that weather the extreme cold of Alberta . That being said one of the miseries in British Columbia (or as I'd prefer to call it Brit"SHIT" Columbia ) is this disgusting grocery chain called Save on Foods , as I'd like to call it Saved by Fools !  How this nasty, disgusting company works is that they have everything more expensive than any other major supermarket, even more expensive than Safeway. Let alone The Real Canadian Superasshole and Wal-Nasty-Mart ! Why? I hav

Juliet's Castle Bar

Image
Lazy Ass   had told me about this bar on the 16th Ave, NE which has a Wing Night on Wednesdays So I headed to his place and we took my car and went there, because he was low on gasoline, he said! It's a nice and clean place in comparison to Cowboys Tap House considering their owner is the same, if it's not rumor. It's called Juliet's Castle . We were directed to a table away from the main hall and then a waitresses approached. I was told that to enjoy the Special Wings I need to order a drink. So I ordered a bottle of Beer which led to Lazy Ass complaining about that but I ignored that! We then realized that we were away from the activities so he went to the main salon, if I can call it, and sat at a table but he was told to go back to the same table that we originally had sat because those tables were reserved! Our food and drink was served and the wings were not actually bad but our waitress, despite the fact that was a pretty girl, was an ass. I really didn't
