Looking at Life from the bottom of a Coffee Cup

Just working on a header for my coffee blog My Cup Is Empty

I know my headers kinda suck because I don't have a proper photoshop type program . So I went hunting for one, and nothing seems to be all that great really. At lest I haven't found one that I like and can easily use. This was taken with Photo Booth. I like Photo Booth.
I have to do something, as I am going insane.
It is winter here, and I am stuck inside more often then not, and we still haven't heard a thing in regards to Ninja's health issues. The doctors ran another batch of tests this week, but she won't get the results for another week or so. Mom is hoping that if Ninja does need surgery, it will be before the holiday or after and not during. Hard to say with doctors.
Speaking of Ninja, it is MonkeyBoy's (her boyfriend) birthday this weekend. Happy Birthday

Wednesday, November 28, 2007


My sister has another doctor's appointment this afternoon. Mom is going to go with her this time. Hopefully she will find out what the troubles are.
Her professor sent her home yesterday midway thru her class.

I don't like this

Ninja is sick.
About five days ago, she started getting stabbing pains in her abdomen. It has gotten so bad that she was told by the doctor to stay off work and school for a while, cause she is not suppose to have any kind of lifting. I am waiting to hear from her as she went to the hospital for tests. One doctor on Thursday told her it might be nothing more then a sist, another doctor told her it could be ovarian cancer.
I just don't like this at all.

Tna Review continued

Review for nov 22 2007

The first TNA Turkey Bowl was a nice idea.
Three rounds of three-way matches that lead to the final being Chris Sabin, Samoa Joe and AJ Styles. Joe won by pinning Styles and causing him to have to wear a Turkey suit.
This was all intercut with the Angle's having a Thanksgiving dinner with other members of TNA. Which was disrupted by Scott Hall and Kevin Nash in the end.
Speaking of Hall, this is the third week in a row that he as appeared on camera in an ICP Hatchetman shirt.
I am unclear on the storyline the writers are trying to thread together with Eric Young, It seems like he is floating back and forth between the faces and the heels without any real anchor.

Lost Little Girl

It's a Friday afternoon, and once again, I have nothing planned for tonight. Just seems the older I get, the less of a life I seem to have. Spent most of Wednesday afternoon going through my kitchen and throwing out all my chipped and broken dishes. Whhoooaa fun. There's a party for ya.
I know it is a job that needs to be done when you are in the process of moving from one Province to another, but the whole moving thing, is taking more time and a lot more energy then I ever thought. Things keep popping up to steer me off course. Now I am back to the beginning as to which city. First it was St. John's but things went wrong, then it was Edmonton but things went wrong, then Kelowna but things have gone terribly wrong, now it looks like it is once again Edmonton. I wish things would straighten out enough to get the city pinpointed. Then we can tackle the troubles from there.
And with the holidays in full swing, depression hits hard. I just dont know if I can handle another season of holidays (xmas, new years, valentine's ) alone. Everyone around me is happily snuggled into their coupledom and I once again seem to be singleton. Add to that almost homeless and it sucks to be me.

More TNA....

Review for Impact from Nov 15th 2007

I am not a fan of Booker T or his wife, so them jumping to TNA is lackluster for me.

Once again Scott Hall made a statement and once again, he did so in an ICP shirt! I smell a future connection.

Kevin Nash had more then one member of the locker room stand up for him after getting knocked down by Kurt Angle and his newly formed team. Almost all the members of the X-Division ran to the six-sided ring to aid Nash. If you looked close you would have seen Alex Shelley saying something that seemed too emotional to have been scripted.

The storyline they are starting between Robbert Roode and Mrs. Brooks and his #1fan is dragging on too long. Come on get it going already, we the fans get the idea, he will dump Mr.Brooks for the #1Fan. Then get it going......

TNA Reviews

Oh I am pissed now!

I got asked for a group I am in to write an article on the show Impact. Okay, I did. Only when the group notices went out, I didn't get one. I checked the list, and sure enough, there was my article with the name on it being the guy who asked me to write it not mine. And it was word for word. Members of another group I am in that has nothing to do with the first one (a Tna wrestling fans group in Second Life) told me to let this guy know that he cant get away with it. I did, then created my own fans group using my own article as the first group notice So here is a copy of my article.

Tna Review for Nov 8 2007
"Hey Yo!"
It was the sound heard across the globe as non other then Scott Hall entered the buidling (in a very wicked ICP shirt fresh from JCW) To address the rumors of him being Sting's tag partner. Can the reformation of the Outsiders be far behind? I for one hope that the NWO come back stronger (or for that matter the newly formed JWO "Juggalo World Order" spilling into Impact)
But my interest right now lays within another tag team, Motor City Machine Guns! I am very glad to see that Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin have been allowed to bring their independent tag team into the six-sided ring.
What are they doing with their superstars? I get that they need a major talent as heel, but Team3D are boring at the moment. They need to bring back some form of Team Canada. And out of nowhere we have a Women's Division. About time and good to see Gail Kim as the first ever Knock Out Champ, but why set up the overlapping fights with so many of the Knock Outs? Pick one and build on it for a few months, then add the others one or two at a time. They saved up all their members of the women's division and just seemed to dump them together not knowing what they were doing with them. Its confussing, and not at all of interest.

So that is what the fuss is about. And since I started it, I am thinking that I will try my best to have a recap after each week.....
Sit tight, I will cover last weeks show later.

Monday Again?

Okay, that is kinda pissing me off. I have to go hunting down the list of blogs in the dashboard to find my own since getting the sl newspaper job.

Welcome to an overdue issue of "Ask Ardeth" Where anything that can be thought of to ask will be answered by my horror film Heavy Metal Goddess alter ego Ardeth Blood.

Item : Ardeth I just love your hair! How can I
get my oh so blah do grooving like yours?
From Drippy in Halifax

Well Drippy, thanks for the desire to be like me. The answer to that isnt as simple as one might think. First, you have to make sure you get the highlights just right, I suggest going to the Undertaker for that just hit and run look, then you have to use alot of product such as firm hold spray, and of course running around in empty graveyards getting dead things caught in it is always the best way to keep it fresh.

Item: Ardeth my husband left me for a younger woman. What do I do now, I have nothing?
From Heartbroken in Gander

Hey there Heartbroken. Depends on your age, if you have any little gremlins hanging off your shoes or not. I suggest if you are over 18 and have no kids, hit the nearest bar and find yourself a fisherman. If you do have kids, leave them with your mother and hit the nearest bar and find yourself a fisherman. If you husband was a fisherman, then try to find yourself a trapper. Bake a p-berry pie and go to the Salvation Army for Sunday potluck and see where your luck takes you.

Item: Ardeth, why is it that you never do zombie movies on your show?
From LivingDead in Saskatoon

LivingDead, I just don't like zombie films.

That's all the time we have for this one, come back around and see what other gobs of wisdom Ardeth Blood will dish out and serve to her fiends.

Let's All Hate Toronto

The CBC Newsworld program has hit it on the nose.
Let's All Hate Toronto is part mockumentary part documentary and all entertaining. The idea behind this film is that one lone Torontoian sees a billboard stating that "Toronto Sucks" and sets out to prove to all of the rest of Canada that it does not.
Along the way, Mr. Toronto, discovers just why the rest of the Canadian people feel the way they feel and learns alot about himself in the process.
Leave it to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to show you it's own underbelly with both a touch of seriousness and good humour.

This is a film worth seeing.

Dark side of the Sun

Ever spend time somewhere, totally love the place, believe in it completely, and then find yourself not feeling at all like you belong?
I was sitting in the club in sl a few days ago, and the little voice in my head -might have been Harvey not sure- screamed "What am I doing here?" I just no longer felt like I belonged there. That tends to happen with me in real life all the time, after about 3 months hanging out in a place I look around and realize I dont fit.
I fear that I never will fit anywhere, at anytime, with anyone. I don't think at times I am meant to be here.
I have had more then one near death moment in my life, and I just don't see how many more times I can cheat death. Without getting into a sappy too long blog, I will just say that.
Well, that little voice was screaming again in my head just a few minutes ago. I had to get up out of the virtual club and go to my virtual office. One person in the chat noticed, and it took quite a while for them to.
Does this mean anything?
Just that I feel like I am sitting on the dark side of the Sun.

{Harvey was a reference to the tv show FARSCAPE}

Here's hoping it all works out in the end.

CNN's Coverage-rant of the week

I just saw a show CNN aired last week on the drug use that is rapid in sports entertainment.
Once again the death of Chris Benoit was the lead focus, and once again the WWE shuffled their feet while keeping their eyes on the ceiling.
When are they going to learn that the fans and the public in general already know that there are major amounts of un-natural things being pumped into the bodies of the superstars? We get it, we are not blind.
It was nice to see them point out the fact that some of the superstars really don't use.
At one point in the interview, the topic of brain damaged that is caused by concussions was brought up as being the main factor behind the Benoit deaths. WWE quickly said that there was no way he could have continued to have a normal daily life if that was the case.

I don't know what the case is other then this; your company is being blamed, wouldn't you be supporting the theory of brain damage over drug use?

That was my rant for the week....I need a cocktail.

Friday, November 9, 2007


Well, not really.
This is me today sitting in my very cool office at the Second Life Newspaper.
That's right my gremlins, I got a my character got herself a job. It is difficult to draw the line between who you are in the real world and your internet self. Anyway, cross your parts and hope that I don't screw it up too bad too soon.

Where does that Paparazzi hide?

Wait for it...did you blink? What is it? A real photo, not a great one, but one from the real world at the moment not Second Life. Don't get too hyper, I will be posting alot more from Second Life as I have emerged myself fully into it.
So here our gremlins is Ardeth Blood local horror hostess/heavy metal goddess on the big day of oct 31.
Not my best red carpet moment, you have no idea just how bloody cold it was outside.

Canada worth more

We have been saying for years that the Canadian dollar coin would once again be worth one dollar. Infact it has topped it sitting right now at a $1.10 in worth.
What does this mean?
Well, some are saying that we can't keep on the rise, that it will cost us too much internationally in the end while others are saying that it is the best thing for us.
The trades agreement that Canada has world wide is in a panic. Suddenly the US dollar isn't worth it as much as the Canadian. Could another crash be on its way? Not just for the speedy little coin that is rolling it's way up the rim to win, but for the American market as well?
Fingers are being pointed saying that we have planted a seed that has spoiled the grounds, but can't we just see what really takes root?
I say it's about time our little Loonie had a chance to shine.

What I learned from Glam City.

I have been having as much trouble in SL as I have in real life. Yesterday I spent half the day just trying to get an application in for a job. That was in the Fashion District. It seems that either they didn't like my answers and refused to take my application, or else they might have had a legit computer meltdown. Hard to say.
Here's me in SL waiting for the job interview.
Also, seems the other women in sl are just like the ones in real life, and they are all out to make me feel like shit. While shopping in the Fashion District I was standing a few feet behind a very tall too thin blonde with an almost non existent nose and fresh tan. Even my avatar was feeling ugly.

What did I learn then? Fashion is everything.

As seen on tv

Okay, I get it. It has been months since anyone in the company put up anything on the websites, so make a wish and close your eyes....POOF!
There you go a new video by Ginger Madrid. Just head on over to the company sites and you will find it on the tv page.

End Status of the Status Bag

It seems official, the IT Bag is over.
Or is it?
The item known as the It Bag has come under some heavy controversy as of late. With prices that cost as much as monthly rent in a major city, many people just don't want to have that kind of money put out on something they will only use for two months.
Many women, like myself, will go for lower end knock-offs (oppss sorry the Domestic End of the Design) for a mire $275-$500 ($150 if we wait an extra month) which has just as much detail, just made with more "common" materials.
I know that I would rather be "So two seasons ago" and have a really great bag that will hold up to daily use then to spend a months rent on something I will be ashamed to admit I owned. (animal shaped, over gadget covered etc)
And in a time when everyone has at lest two status bags in their collection, what is that really saying?

All Soul's Day

The day after Sahmain.
After a week of prep, and a night of ritual, it's time to get back to the rest of the daily grind. And I started my day kinda where I left off my night, watching dvds. I had rented Spiderman 2 and 3, Seed of Chucky, and All Souls Day.
If you know my posts, then you know I don't like zombie films. So why did I rent a zombie film? The trailer looked cool.
And I have to say, it was a decent enough movie. But because I am not a zombie fan, I never figured it out before. Why in all those type of horror films they are safe when the sun comes up. Because, those films were taking from the myth surrounding ALL Soul's Day.
It is over once the sun rises, and the spirits of the dead return to their graves. So in essence, the power they have is over.
That is what almost every zombie type film has pulled from...hell every real gore/horror film. I won't even start as to why I disagree with alot of things done in typical horror films cause my list of problems would take forever.
Anyway; back to the fact that it is November 1st. Had to pay bills today, as it was a long line at the bank. Had to get to the bank because I wanted to start doing my banking online, and the lady who works there didn't know what to do. All I needed was one little string of numbers that I didn't have to begin with. If I had that string of numbers I could have signed up online. How ironic is that? I had to go into the bank so that I could start banking online so that I wouldn't need to go into the bank again...
